This episode had lots of different focuses. It’s the time of the year for the summer-festival to come, and let’s just say that a few couples get developed: Yasako and Haraken, and Fumie and Daichi. We especially get a lot of Daichi this time. Oh, and Isako looks quite strange in a yukata.

Anyway, the usual list of new information (new for me, at least):
– According to a legend, if you wear your glasses at night, a child can enter its own dreams.
– Yuuko has the strange dream again, where the boy’s voice advices her to run away, after which she’s attacked by a giant illegal.
– Haraken’s aunt seems to be interested in Yasako and Isako for some reason.
– There’s a white mist in the teacher’s office as well.
– Yasako’s dad is Haraken’s aunt’s boss, instead of the other way around like I first thought. He also was the one who designed Sacchi, and gave it its name and made it say “boku sacchi”.
– Ken keeps contact with Kanna’s mother. She fully supports his research. In this episode, she gives him Kanna’s glasses. She wants to know what happened to Kanna on the day she died as well.
– Daichi has had a crush on Fumie a long time ago. He wanted to ask her out to the sumer festival since a long time ago, but every time he was too scared to do it.
– Either Haraken or Kanna had a dog, called Kuro. This dog went lost, and in this episode, Haraken finds out that it turned into an illegal. It gets blown up by a Kyuu-chan, though.
– Kanna seems to have had a few hidden files behind a password, and Kanna needs some sort of key to access them.
– Kyoko hates Daichi.

The most important focus of the episode, though, was Daichi. He had been too scared to ask Fumie out to the festival, but now Isako orders him to duel her to obtain her glasses. Why? Because she wants Michiko-san’s power. Why Isako would want Fumie’s glasses for that, I have no idea, it must probably have something to do with the data she stole. In any case, the plan is for Daichi to challenge her during the festival, but he ends up having fun with her. Isako was quite evil when she forced him to actually fight.

We also finally get to know what Isako has been after: Michiko-san. What is she, actually? And why does Fumie play a role in it? I also wonder why it took Yasako so long to mention that her father wwas the one who developed the Sacchi.

    I’m sorry if this comes across as rude, but – sometimes I don’t even know why you watch these shows raw, seriously.

    1. Daichi DID ask Fumie out to the festival before, when they were in Grade 3. Fumie mentions this to him.

    2. Haraken’s aunt would obviously be interested in Yasako and Isako because she’s heard that it was a “Yuuko” who has been doing all the various damage to the city’s cyber-infrastructure all this time. You wouldn’t think one of the system administrator sort of folks would just ignore this…

    3. Chloe was Kanna’s dog (I think Haraken says Kuro as a short form later when he guesses it was the illegal.)

    4. Isako didn’t ask Daichi to get Fumie’s specs because she wanted to get Michiko’s power. What she told him was that she COULD have done it with Michiko’s power if she wanted to, because she had the ability to call it out whenever she wanted to, but it’d be the least troublesome and most peaceful if she got Daichi to do it.

    5. Daichi actually DID challenge her – the plan, from the beginning, was to challenge Fumie to a fight at a later date in school. He just took a long time to do it properly. I believe Isako’s plan is to get them to wreck a lot havoc and distract each other, as well as the teachers, from the places in the school Isako wants to get access to. Though I’m not sure about this, but anyway…

    I can imagine for someone as skilled in the Japanese language to find my posts annoying, and I myself can’t believe I made so many mistakes for this episode. As for the reason I’m continuing to watch these series raw, it’s actually to improve my level in Japanese. Writing up these entries is helping me in this (which is also why I stopped watching the series I don’t blog raw, it takes time to try and understand them). With especially series like Dennou Coil, El Cazador and Seirei no Moribito, little mistakes like these might slip past, however.

    Your mistakes are few – so don’t worry about it. You’ll also get better as you watch and understand more. Denno Coil is an excellent series – don’t ever stop blogging it (^^)

    Your mistakes are few, and I actually like following the way that insight and understanding into what is happening in the anime develops over time– since that’s the experience I’m having, too. That’s one of the key qualities of the series, creating mystery/puzzles and slowly revealing the truth. It’s quite fun.

    @Wicked, think you hit the nail on the head there. The characters one of the main reasons I am not too gone on it.

    Mob Psycho is well paced for a 10 minute show I think. It’s got a lot of these pseudo cliffhanger to play for jokes. The stories get better, it’s the characters that’s not as interesting as one punch man in my opinion

    Hmm, haven’t read Mob Psycho 100 much(just checked what its art looks like) so can’t comment on that.

    @masky, it does have better art but a much weaker story. I get the feeling the Mob psycho anime will be a five minute show.

    Dunno, Mob Psycho 100 does have better art than ONE’s OPMan. Its still rough, but yeah.

    @wicked, I wonder how that will work out, as ONE’s style is a bit of an acquired taste.

    ah, they decided to go with ONE’s art style instead of really pretty it up with Mob Psycho 100

    Ajin is interesting, but the character design is weird. Everyone looks lifeless and angry.

    it’d actually be a shame for them to make it into I Wanna Be the Strongest in the World, or worst

    @Aidan, Yeah that guy tries really hard to make it more than just fanservice though. I have a weird respect for people that can play ridiculous concepts straight.

Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu – 05

Congratulations Yakumo. You finally discovered your spark for Rakugo. And all you needed to do was dress up like a woman to do it. This may harken back to what his master said, his Rakugo is too perfect. So this play put on by Rakugo performers was really the thing he needed. By dressing him […]

Schwarzesmarken – 05

For something that definitely feels rushed, this was a pretty good episode for Schwarzesmarken. I really cannot emphasize enough at how much of a shame it is that this series looks to be cut down to fit into a single cour. If given a two cour run I think Schwarzesmarken could really shine but sadly […]

Boku dake ga Inai Machi – 05

When it rains it pours and Boku dake isn’t pulling any punches. Hinazuki is gone and the only hint of her we see is what looks to be her dead body in front of her parents, one of whom is panicking. With this we have two possibilities. Either they happened upon Hinazuka’s dead body or […]

Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu – 04

Well it seems like I have to eat my words as Yakumo is quite the ladies man. Which is odd when he clearly doesn’t have any interest in interacting with women. Yakumo has a fruitful love life despite his apathy towards love in general. Yakumo and Sukeroku’s relationship has certainly gotten more easygoing as the […]

This episode starts with a groan as we meet a new member of the cast, that being Theodor’s sister who on first sight hugs with with the ever so traditional “Onii-chan!” The sister does bring some good developments to the table, namely the machination the Stasi has in store for her, but I really wish […]

Boku dake ga Inai Machi – 04

There certainly is a layer of dread from this episodes beginning as we see happy events unfold. Things are looking up, history is changing, Kayo is finally getting out of an abusive relationship with her mother and finding happiness. But much like Satou is feeling, there is a unease at these developments. Things are going […]

Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu – 03

From the looks of things this series will be focusing primarily on the past of Yakumo as the stylish opening seems to place emphasis on the characters of the flashback. Rakugo is surprisingly abset this week as World War II causes Yakumo to be left behind as his Teacher and Sukeroku go out to entertain […]

Schwarzesmarken – 03

Schwarzesmarken remains a strange specimen of an anime, while still not excelling it is clear it has the potential to. So why is it not a great anime? Well it’s beating the same point as my last post but I do think characterisation is key here. In this episode we had two characters introduced whose […]

Boku dake ga Inai Machi – 03

When it comes to matters of time travel, it’s always a wonder to consider just what rules it follows. Time travel, much like alternate realities is one of the biggest can of worms to open when writing a story. Mainly because it demands the viewer keeps in mind a series of characters,settings and event which […]

Gangsta. – 58/100

Gangsta is an anime with a lot of things going for it. A mature cast, gritty themes, a interesting setting and a trio of main characters who can carry the show. However due to a number of factors it never quite reached its potential. The main trio of characters are unconventional and quite interesting with […]

Gakkou Gurashi! – 80/100

Gakkou is one with a good facade as promotional material would have you believe it was some dime a dozen moe slice of life. I was one who wasn’t fooled by the cute cuddly exterior but I was truly surprised with just how good this anime ended up being. Gakkou is one of those rare […]

Little Witch Academia The Enchanted Parade – 81/100

I wonder when it was that a film being childish became a flaw. As a medium grows it takes steps to aim to mature itself and seek a more intellectual level of presenting entertainment. Animation did it as Anime aimed to explore terrontry that cartoons refuse to explore and video games only recently broke away […]

Shirobako Review – 80/100

When you see a harem anime and sigh as the breasts of the female lead jiggle with every step and wind that can flip a skirt it’s easy to forget that somewhere in Japan a group of people worked hard to get that jiggle right and draw each frame of animation. The hardships of the […]

Nerawareta Gakuen Review – 84/100

Let me talk a bit about Ryousuke Nakamura. For a long time, this guy was my hero. He started off as an assistant director to Monster, in my opinion a big reason why that series got such a ridiculously solid adaptation, and then in 2008 he came with the groundbreaking Mouryou no Hako. No TV-series […]

Kick Heart

Okay, so I didn’t want to exit 2013 without having seen Masaaki Yuasa’s Kick Heart. It’s only twelve minutes anyway, and I consider him to be one of the best anime directors out there. The story here is pretty silly and mostly serves as a backdrop, so I mostly want to talk about the nature […]

Everyone’s taste is different, and that’s a wonderful thing because that allows us to have so many different forms of media that all aim toward their own niche.

Noucome! You do not want to know how long I have been waiting for a series like this. More than half a decade, at the very least. Finally a series comes along and puts the incredibly overused harem genre in its place. And it actually does it well. Thank you! So to elaborate: the harem […]
