Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry got off to a rather questionable start, but by about halfway through the first episode it was looking good, and from what I’ve seen so far it’s just gone upwards from there.

I had heard people praising the Bishamon arc of Noragami while the first series was airing. Now I know why. The only issue is, now that’s over can the series hold on to the standard of that arc or will things go back down to the level of the first season, or possibly lower still?

Gochiusa seems to be on the up as well, while Muco wasn’t as funny this week as previously.

I’ve had a tiring and stressful week this week. I managed to watch more anime than I had anticipated, but two thirds of that was all on the same day (yesterday).That week is over now, though.

Most things are continuing in much the same vein as they had been previously, so there’s not all that much to say.

Note: the rest of this article contains spoilers related to Comet Lucifer episode 2, which is why I’ve put it behind a “read more” tag.
