Brilliant episode of Joukamachi this week. I’m loving this series. I’ll pick up the manga at some point, too.

Gakkou Gurashi felt so much like the calm before the storm. And the storm could be big indeed…

From what little I’ve watched of it so far, Gangsta seems to be better than the sum of its parts. But then that isn’t really saying much. Once I get back I’ll probably watch more of the things that I have fallen behind on. I’ve been deliberately leaving Charlotte up until now as I think it will probably be something best watched over a fairly short time period, but when I get back it will be just 2 weeks before it ends, so… It’ll also be the last week for picking stuff up before they stop counting as airing watches.

Not all is good with the world, though and the quirkiness in Bikini Warriors had faded with every episode since the first. A shame, but it probably never had more potential to begin with.

Danchigai’s episode this week was the weekest yet as well. Not enough Satsuki.
