    Wow, I think this is actually the first real fanservice scene we've gotten in Re:Creators. And given Magane is, well... Magane, it's actually perfectly in-character for her to prance around her house in her panties and strike ridiculous poses. I'm actually a little surprised she didn't try to pull a "You walked in on me naked? How l-lewd!" fake embarrassment card on Aliceteria just for the lulz.

    We also got Blitz's backstory this week, Hikayu is a useless ball of moe and her creator's personality is just about exactly what you'd expect from that of a stereotypical eroge author (that scene with him trying to perv on Hikayu was hilarious, though). Blitz and Altair's interactions were interesting as well. Her reminding Blitz of his daughter is hardly surprising (as "helping a female character because they remind him of his daughter" is a pretty common motivation in grizzled anti-hero characters like Blitz), but for Altair to reciprocate the feeling is a little more unexpected.

    Not really sure what to make of their exchange, honestly. On the one hand it definitely fleshes out Altair and makes her more sympathetic, but on the other it's weird that someone who wants to destroy literally all of reality is giving him seemingly sincere and genuine advice on how to live his life. Doesn't Altair realize if she actually won both Blitz and his entire world would be erased from existence too? She's basically telling him "go and do justice to your daughter's memory, but just FYI I'm going to wipe you and everything you love from the face of existence in a few months anyway". Then again, Altair's whole character is a mess of contradictions from the bottom-up so it does kind of fit. You can almost think of it as her "breaking character" in a way, especially since she reverts back to her usual pretentious villain monologuing immediately afterwards.

    Hell No. She's fucking crazy. Probably fun to hang out with as long as you don't get poisoned by proximity, but no way would I live with her.

    So, I just checked out the first episode for Kakegurui on a whim tonight and holy crap, it's freaking awesome. The amount of raw sex-appeal and insane emotion you can infuse into a scene of two characters standing across from each other playing rock, paper, scissors is absolutely unbelievable. Plus the yuri-rific opening theme and... let's just say this is definitely a show I'm going to be keeping an eye on. *drools*

    From the first ep alone, she doesn't seem that bad. Sure she has a nigh-psychotic love of gambling, but other then that she actually seems to be a pretty kind person (what with how she handed Ryota all that cash so he could escape his debt, for instance). Just make damn sure she's not going to be able to use your finances for gambling and you'd be set...

    Princess Principal had a rather silly first episode and an amazing second episode. Even if it is a trainwreck in the making, I can at least fondly remember the second episode.

    Has anybody been following 18if? Because it took an extremely abrupt tone-shift this week, from whimsical romps through a carnivalesque dream world into what can only be described as a torture-porn gorefest. Not to mention Haruto goes from a generically nice protagonist guy to a borderline sociopath who has no problem seeing (admittedly utter scumbags, but still) people getting horribly massacred in front of him. On the one hand, something interesting can be said for how Haruto doesn't just spout the usual "revenge is bad!" Shonen protagonist speech, but on the other hand the episode's actual moral was so muddled as to be just about incomprehensible.

    No matter how badly they deserved it, a 12-year old girl's killing three people is sure as hell not going to solve her emotional problems, and that the show apparently thinks this to be the case is just outright bizarre. Not to mention how despite supposedly being sent to solve these Witchs' inner woes, Haruto basically stands there and does nothing but gawk while Mana (the current witch) kills off her past tormentors, but yet is somehow credited for saving her nevertheless.

    Despite the admittedly striking presentation of the murder scene, this episode was rather bland visually as well compared to the first one, with almost the entire time in the dream-world consisting of Haruto & Mana standing in a room talking. At this point it's obvious this is an exceedingly weird show, and while this episode's content did not do it for me at all, I might keep watching just to see how much of an unpredictable trainwreck it becomes in the future.

    Yoshiko's mom is such a riot, lol.

    EDIT: Tsuredure Children. When Childhood friends are too close...

    That dude's got the move like jagger and his Kouhai literally has them, too.

    Love is derpy. Exactly what it says on the tin, and lol at the Nico-like comments flying by.

    Return of the dense love interest with a vengeance.

    Youkoso was mildly entertaining.

    Though I have to say, did literally no one aside from like the four people with high point values read the school handbook? Hell, I read those, and they're boring as shit.

    Youjitsu is... sheesh. I hope it's like Kamimemo, but I wonder if it's more like Nanana, in terms of the protagonist type.

    This is the most generic, wish-fulfillment and cliche story that I've seen in a while, and you know, is entertaining in their own way.


    Many stories try to make something different + harem shenanigans and they failed awfully only generating thrash.


    Isekai wa Smartphone throw all pretension through the window and is 100% dedicated to the wish-fulfillment fantasy, in certain way is pure. It's as if the author is say: Fuck everything! I want to write this and I'm going to write this.


    I would watch 100 chapters of this before to 5 mins of something as Oreimo or their descendant.


    IN OTHER MATTERS: In Tsurezure Children many problems could be solved with a pair of BALLS

    I binged up to volume 6 after watching the first episode of the anime.
    Spoiler:
    And Kikyou's a bitch. Like an actual bad person. She's cute and has titties, but the fact she's been getting away with shit for 6 volumes without most of the characters knowing makes my stomach a little upset.

    Episode 2 of Gamers! was really good. At first I was expecting a petty/vain squabble between Uehara and Amano, but it definitely surprised me. Even though it was hinted the very same episode, I didn't see the connection immediately with Aguri.



    Wow, Amano filled Tendou's affection meter hard, lol.
