    Youtube has footages on Gosick. You might want to check them out.

    UQ Holder
    Year 2086: 80 years after Negima and Asuka's story, Evangelina McDowell aka Yukihime has become a teacher. (It's implied everyone else is gone, too)
    Tota Konoe, Negi's orphan grandson, has visions of him calling him to climb the orbital elevator. In order to get permission to leave the village he has to defeat Yukihime. Yukihime is his foster parent but sucks at house work.
    I gonna watch this for a while and see. So far it hasn't disappointed yet. It's a bit bloody and on the undead bandwagon, though.

    thanks.Now that I have audio I might do that.

    Monday watched episode 1 of Vampire Princess Miyu OVAs:
    Himiko comes to Kyoto to help a couple whose daughter has fallen into a comatose state.
    There is a story of vampires haunting the night. Himiko meets the girls boyfriend and they talk.
    Later she has her first encounter with Miyu.
    The next day Himiko goes to a shop and buys a charm to use against Miyu but it proves no good.
    Miyu transports her and the boy to the netherworld that is her real home.The trees are covered
    with orbs that turn out to be the souls of people.
    When Himiko comes to she finds herself in the park again near a swing set.
    The boy is totally unaware of his surroundings.
    Going back to the house of her clients,she finds it in shambles and the couple disappear.
    All that is left is the girl who suddenly rises like a marionette on strings.
    Miyu and her servant Larva arrive and Miyu explains it is the work of a Shinma and orders
    Larva to create a box to hold it.
    The Shinma comes out of the girl and begins to attack but Miyu defeats it.
    Later Himiko is in the park when she sees a group of girls. One of them looks like Miyu and she
    points to the boy now listlessly sitting on a swing and tells the other a legend featuring him.
    Himiko sees them walk pass and hears Miyu's laughter..

    Tuesday episode 11 of K-ON! Season 1: The girls have to go back to the music store to
    get "Geetar" cleaned and have new strings strung because Yui has neglected proper care (she says
    she sleeps with it and dresses it up but Asuza says that's not what they mean).
    Because Mio is a lefty she refuses to go in because instruments are made mainly fro righys.
    That is until Ritsu points out that the store is having a Lefty Festival meaning there will be plenty
    of instruments made for left handers.Mio goes into ecstatics and refuses to leave.
    The clerk working on "Geetar" says it'll be $50 but Yui forgot her money.Tsugumi to the rescue again
    ! Laughing
    Later Yui says she has to meet Nodoka for tea and Mio wants to go to because she's in the same class.Ritsu cons the other two to spy on them but gets jealous because she feels Mio is abandoning her for Nodoka.
    Later her playing is listless,and she runs out of the band room.
    She doesn't show up again and Sawako sensei blames it on Mio who finally decides to apologize
    only to find that Ritsu is home in bed with a cold.
    She comes to Ritsu's house and they make up.
    Later everyone is ready to start practicing for the school festival under their new name:
    After-School Teatime...and then Yui starts sneezing!

    Wed. episode 2 of School Live this starts with Kurummi recalling the day the infection began as she was talking with her senpai on the track team trying to get the courage to tell him her feelings.
    She wakes up shaken from the memory.
    That morning Yuki announces she has a one-on-one class with Sakura sensei.
    While she is gone Kurumi does her morning patrol and finds a female zombie on the other side of the barrier.
    She throws a bell at it and it goes after it while Kurumi climbs across.
    As the zombie attacks her she sees the cell phone that belonged to it when it was still a living girl.
    She kills it and says: "Good Night."
    Later she joins Ri on the roof who tells her she should have just left it alone.
    They watch zombies chase a soccer ball around and debate whether it's because they're following
    the sound or if there's a residual memory of the last thing they were doing before they died.
    Kurumi wonders if there was anyone running track when it happened and feels guilty because she
    was the track manager.
    Later Yuki comes back and tells them Sakura sensei told her about doing a Test of Courage for Summer break.
    Ri takes the opportunity to get more supplies and they head for the school store and library.
    Miki worries about the light attracting the zombies but Ri says it's ok because the store doesn't have an outward facing window.
    When they're done they go to the library where Ri wants to pick up some more math books,when
    Yuki asks why she replies because Yuki needs to work on her math.
    Yuki and Sakura sensei look for manga when a zombie attacks.The other girls distract it so Yuki can escape and Kurumi kills it.
    Ri praises Yuki for being cool headed enough not to move from where she was or say anything.
    Later that night Kurumi has the same dream..

    Th. episode 2 of Himouto!Umaru-chan Umaru's big brother is surprised to find the apartment nice and clean,and then finds out that Umaru has invited Ebina to study with her.
    Later he discovers she has put everything in the bathroom! Laughing Laughing
    Sunday Umaru is decides to trick her brother into getting her a new game but she falls asleep from having an all nighter playing games.
    He decides that they have to go grocery shopping but she plans on doing one of her patent fits to get him to buy the game for her.
    At the store they meet Ebina and they all wind up having lunch together.This means that Umaru
    can't pull her stunt which makes her madder.
    When she does however they are both surprised that Ebina ignores it,but then they realize it's because she's from Akita and the accent is different and she's still not used to standard.
    Ebina lashes back to when she first came to Tokyo and how everyone stared at her; in fact
    Umaru's brother was the first one to look her in the eyes! (she is totally unaware of the fact
    that people stare at her because of her rather well endowed breasts.)
    Later Umaru and Ebina are walking home from school when they're given pamphlets about a
    rock-scissors-paper contest(yeah only in Japan!)
    Umaru gets her brother to enter with her and he ends up in the finale against Ebina.
    Because of her nervousness he wins but gives the prize to her.
    Umaru is in a snit because she wanted it so he ends up ordering for her...

    After catching up to the latest episode 4 I gotta say there's not much in common with Negima.
    It fact it's just another brawn young-male-hero fighting his way through an evil world type of show. It's the same as with any fighting anime. I predict it's likely be a long running anime a la One Piece/Naruto and/or end up unfinished.

    Violet Evergarden
    An upcoming anime next year. This is probably the most awaited one right now. The PVs and CMs look very promissing.
    Yeah, we are back to female cyborg/android trying to find her place in the world a la Key, the Metal idol or Gunnm.

    Captain Future
    The english fan translation of the show is half way complete. I'm going to try to reserve time to rewatch one of the best scifi show there is. With all 4(5) languages available to me I pretty much will have a complete collection.

    It's still a mystery to me how the french could get a jump on licensing the two best/legendary shows (CP, KOR) in their category despite being latecomers. And still at least a decade ahead and still counting in the case of CP.

    CP? My mind is a blank sorry. Glad someone has gotten around to licensing KOR again
    though I wonder what darling sounds like in French.

    Friday watched episode 3 of Bubblegum Crisis,Tokyo 2040At work the next day Linna can't
    believe the fact that she even was able to 'kill' a rogue Boomer in the simulation.Later she meets
    with Nene about becoming a Knight Saber.
    While they talk a waitress Boomer spills some drink on a male customer and he angrily yells at her
    to 'lick it'. She does so.
    However the command causes a logic loop in the Boomer's programming.
    Sylia has Linna's suit completed and ready for a try out when they get there.
    She warns her that it will be too cold at first and Linna reacts to the touch of the suit.
    Priss is riding her motorcycle when she comes across a crowd gathered at the resturant.
    The Boomer waitress has gone out of control and reverted to it's natural state and attacking
    a customer (same as before?) with its 'tongue'. Priss informs Slyia and she sends a still unprepared
    Linna and Nene to help.
    But Leon and his partner from the AD Police arrive at the same time...

    Saturday episode 1 of Girls Und Panzer(dubbed). Ok, I get confused with the opening because
    it starts out with the battle against Darjeeling's school and then goes to Miho waking up and getting ready for school.At school she meets Saori and Hana.They have lunch together and talk about what clubs they want to join.
    Later as they get ready to go home the school student council president stops by to talk to
    Miho to convince her to sign up for Tankery.
    She refuses and thinks nothing of it.
    The next day there is an assembly where the student council announces the resumption of Tankery
    as an elective (Yukari and Mako are both shown in the audience).
    Miho is still adamant of not signing up but instead writes in "Incense Club" for elective club.
    The other two decide to also join the same club because even though they want to join the
    Tankery team they know it would make Miho miserable if they were to continue to talk about it
    in her presence.
    Miho is paged to the Student Council Room.
    Saori and Hana go with her.When the Student Council demand she sign up for Tankery Hana and
    Saori defend her. But she finally gives in.
    Later the new Tankery team assembles and they are shown the tanks. Everyone is astonished when
    Miho walks forward and puts her hand on one of the tanks and comments..

    Sunday episode 1 of Monster Mususme aside from the obvious boob fetish I really enjoined it.
    It starts out with Miia coiled around Kurusu,he tries her to get up but since she's a reptilian demi-human(Lamia)it takes her longer to warm up.
    After an misadventure with the bath tub in which she nearly drowns him Kurusu changes clothes and starts to make breakfast.
    He's shocked to find Ms Smith( is this a reference to The Matrix? anyone know?) sitting at the table demanding to be fed. Laughing
    She also reminds him of the rules.
    Then she leaves(eventually).
    Miia and Kurusu go out on an outing. She's happily singing "a date! a date! a date!" when they
    round into a couple that make fun of her. She's about to hit them with her tail when Kurusu
    remembers the rules and allows Miia's tale to hit him instead.
    Later they find a lingerie shop that deals in underwear for demi-human females.
    Miia is happy because they have clothes for Lamias.
    She wants Kurusu to help her try on some bras reminding him that Ms Smith said he had to be with her at all times (and I don't think that's what it means! Laughing )he is of course embarrassed and
    rushes out of the changing room only to notice he's grabbed a piece of something.
    Miia leans out and demands her panties back!
    Later they are chased by a crowd and the only refuse is a love hotel.
    Ms Smith and her Monster Patrol find them and she admits sheepishly they found them on Twitter.
    The night ends as the day began with Ms Smith suddenly arriving...
    Next episode Centorea and Papi... Cool

    I meant CF.
    In France KOR is called "Max et Compagnie".
    Kyosuke Kasuga (Maxime)
    Madoka Ayukawa (Sabrina)
    Hikaru Hiyama (Pamela).
    Hikaru calls him Max instead of darling most of the time. In italian it's delizioso [delucio].

    Monday watched Sakura Wars An old retainer of the Shiguji clan comes to Tokyo to
    bring Sakura home.Unfortunately he interrupts the girls in the middle of rehearsing for their next
    show.This leads to Sumire getting pissed as usual.
    The retainer goes to talk with General Yoneda who is an old friend. Yoneda reassures him that
    Sakura is doing alright.
    Meanwhile the dark forces are gathering preparing to undo the next seal.
    Unknown the Flower Brigade continue their prep for the new show. Sakura works with Maria to help
    her with her tempo and timing of the dance.
    A small disaster arises when it is discovered that Sumire's name has been misspelled,this leads to everyone working together to paste the correct kanji on to the billboards.
    This happens at the same time as Sumire wanting to go home but is rebuffed by her father.
    Finally everything is ready for the new show.
    the audience is ready to be entertained as the girls arrive on stage.
    But danger awaits elsewhere...

    Tuesday episode 12 of K-ON season 1. Yui is delirious with fever. It looks like she'll not
    make it in time for the school festival.Ui disguises herself as her older sister and nearly fools
    everyone;except her playing is much better than Yui's and the band sounds a lot solider.
    The other girls wonder why when Sawako-sensei points out it's Ui.When asked how she can tell
    the difference between the sisters,she replies that Ui's boobs are bigger! Laughing Laughing Laughing
    Yui finally shows up but still has a cold.
    Mio orders her back to rest until she feels better.
    She also asks Asuza to take Yui's place as lead guitar.
    Later Nodoka tells the band about a time when she and Yui were little and Yui went and collected
    a bunch of crawfish and put them in the bathtub.
    She tells them that that's the way Yui always has been...when she's focused on something she
    forgets everything else.
    The school festival arrives but Yui doesn't have her beloved 'Geetaa', so Sawako-sensei offers her
    her axe but she says she can only play 'Geetaa'.
    Sawako-sensie agrees to stand in for her until she can get back.
    As the girls play their first number with Mio on lead vocals Yui rushes back home and then to school.
    Finally reaching it at the end of the first number she climbs up and thanks the others.
    Then she tells the crowd about their goal and how playing for them is like fulfilling it.
    The band breaks into Fuwa Fuwa Time with a repeat of the chrous at the end.

    thoughts: only OVA 1 and 2 left for this season.
    and as for favorites:
    1.Mio
    2.Asuza
    3.Tsugumi
    4.Yui
    5.Ritsu
    for the non-band members:
    1.Ui
    2.Sawako sensei
    3.Nodoka
    4.Geetaa...can a guitar count as a character? Laughing

    Wed.: cue the theme for The Twilight Zone and Rod Serling's narration:
    "Submitted for your approval, Megumi Sakura, a newly minted high school teacher,
    whose lesson plan will take a sudden field trip into: The Twilight Zone!"
    Episode 3 of School Live pretty eerie at the ending.Mainly seen through the eyes of
    Sakura-sensei for a goodish part of it.
    It also shows why Yuki,Yuri and Kurumi all survived: they were furthest away from whatever
    toxin was blowing in the wind.
    So the ending implies that Sakura-sensei is still alive and in the basement and hasn't turned yet.
    Comment: Once the missiles start falling on the infected parts of the city I got wondering two things: 1)was the military behind it? and 2) is it possible that School Live and
    High School of the Dead might be in the same universe? doubt it but it would be interesting..

    Th. watched episode 3 of Himouto! Umaru-chan this is the episode that establishes Umaru and her brother are the children of the head of the Doma corporation.But IIRC from the wiki it states that they're actually the children of his mistress.
    Anywhos this focuses on Scary Girl(tm)Mobota.Evidently she gets a rep for being scary because in
    reality she's totally shy around people.
    She also has no idea that "Komura" Umaru's "little sister" is really Umaru and wants to learn from her.
    I would say that Mobota is one weird girl but then again I have yet to see a Tachibana episode.
    So like is Ebina the only normal girl in this entire series so far?

    Are you talking about the American version that just aired or a newer Japanese live action version?
    I have the first two original live action Japanese movies and love the way Ryu tells L toward the end:
    "You're no fun!" Laughing

    Friday watched episode 4 of Bubblegum Crisis,tokyo 2040 Priss is pissed because Slyia decided to use Linna even though she's far from ready. Linna makes a visit to Priss to find out what drives her.
    Later Leon continues his investigation into the Knight Sabers by tracking down Priss; lotta good seguing between Linna working out and Priss singing.
    It's also revealed that Linna was a star athlete in school.
    Leon confronts Priss outside in the alley but both end up getting alerts about a new rogue Boomer...

    Saturday episode 2 of Girls Und Panzer The new teacher for the Tankery course arrives and much to Saori's chagrin is female. She immediately embarrasses Miho by pointing her out and asking about her sister Maho.
    It's decided that the club will have a war game, the object being to see who can be the top tank
    crew.
    The girls in Miho's team choose straws to see who the leader will be (since Miho doesn't want the role) and Saori wins. A lotta trouble with Hana not being able to get the tank in gear at first, but they're finally able to take off.
    Unfortunately they're the target of two other tank crews and when they finally get out it's not
    long before they find a sleeping Mako in their path...

    Sunday episode 2 of Monster Musume introducing birdbrain Papi the Harpy and Centorea 'Ceres' the Centaur.The Papi scenes were really lol! I think because she's so innocent and
    bird brained!
    Miia at first is more tolerant of her because she thinks she's just a kid until Ms Smith tells her
    Papi is really her own age and the fact is Harpies age slower because of evolution and the whole
    thing about flight.
    After that Miia really gets pissed in a kindly way and makes sure that Papi knows who is the alpha
    female in the house!
    Meanwhile Kurusu has to get more groceries and is run over by Centorea. It also happens to be
    in the same place a lot of purse snatchings have occured.
    One thing leads to another and the two of them track down the thief.
    Centorea looses her sword and the thief picks it up wanting to kill her but Kurusu steps in the way
    only to find out it's a fake (the rules say no weapons).
    He's later surprised to learn that riding on a centaur is their equivalent to rape and so when Centorea shows up again profusely apologies but is surprised when she begins to apologize to him
    because she's decided he's her new master!

    Monday didn't watch anime but saw Abbot And Costello instead. The episode revolved around the boys trying to get something to eat and how Lou has a thing about meatballs.
    Funniest bit:Alexander 4444 where Lou is trying to make a call 2 blocks down but the operator keeps telling him: "I'm sorry sir, the line won't connect."
    Meanwhile other people in their apartment are able to make long distance calls to places like
    Italy and poor Lou simply wants to make a call 2 blocks down the street and can't! Laughing

    Tuesday Extra Episode 1 of K-ON! Season 1: this revolves around the girls doing various things on a really cold weekend:
    Tsugumi gets a new job.
    Asuza cat sits
    Ritsu takes her brother to the movies
    Mio decides to go to the beach for inspiration for her next song
    Yui and Ui decide to make hot pots.
    Nothing goes according to plan:
    Tsugumi gets an order wrong and spills a drink on her trainer.
    the cat Asuza is sitting coughs up an hair ball and she freaks not knowing what to do.
    Ritsu gets what she thinks is a love letter only to learn later it's some lyrics that Mio wanted to show her.
    And the beach is too cold for Mio.
    They all end up meeting up at the fast food store that Tsugumi is working at.

    I meant the amercian movie.

    The fan translation project for Captain Future is coming a long at a nice pace. Too bad the audio of the japanese original version isn't very attractive. Story wise the show is only now being caught up by recent media. I still think some are still not covered yet, though... Should I start a review series for the show?

    Garo - Vanishing Line
    Another Garo show. The franchise has as many lives as Power Rangers... This version takes place in NY. The character set is basically the same. I think it's an attempt to appeal to non-japanese viewers.

    Wed. episode 4 of School Live basically Miki's backstory. It also tells how she came to
    have Taomaru when the other girls finally find her at the mall.
    The irony here is if her friend Kei had been as patient she might've survived as well.

    Th. ep. 4 of Himouto Umaru-chan and now we get around to Tachibana who makes
    Yuki from School Live seem sane in comparison. Tachibana is so deluded in her one sided
    rivalry with Umaru! Laughing

    With this I think it's between Ebina and Mobota for Best Girl.

    Friday watched episode 5 of Bubblegum Crisis,Tokyo 2040 so it ends up that the whole
    Boomer incident at the factory was a set up to trap the Knight Sabers.
    They do manage however to stop the rogue Boomer,but when they're making their escape Linna's
    battery in her hardsuit finally runs out and she begins to fall...

    Saturday episode 3 of Girls Und Panzer After Mako demonstrates her ability to adapt  and learn quickly the rest of the girls want to have her as their new driver. But she refuses until Saori 'convinces' her otherwise. Meanwhile a test match as been decided upon with St.Gloriana's.
    Thus introducing everyone's favortie tea drinking pseudo-Brit:Darjeeling! Cool cheers cheers

    Sunday episode 3 of Monster Musume: with three girls now living at the house Kurusu
    has his hands full(or so it would seem).Then Smith gives them the news that the Inter-Species
    Authority or whatever is thinking of making it possible for intermarriage between species.
    She suggest Kurusu choose one of the girls for a test case.
    This of course leads to one restless night and him getting banged up* in the end and looking like a mummy!
    (She forgot to tell him a full moon really makes them go all hormonal!)

    * i don't mean in the fun way either!

    Blade of the Immortal (2017) live action movie
    It seems to tell the whole story.
    Hmm, I thought there was one already. *shrugs*

    Fate Grand Order - First Order
    An anime movie for the game of the same name(?) with total new and old hero characters. Meh.
    These past years the franchise had created so many shows I lost track and interest. And I haven't heard nor see much good in any either...

    Yeah same here.

    Welp got around to e-mailing Sentai about K-ON!season 1 so at least they'll know about the problem with disc 2.

    Monday I watched episodes 22-24 of Adventures of the Mini-Goddess in the first Urd and Skuld try to help Gan-chan's love life and in the second and third the Goddesses decide to form a rock band.
    Of course dissension soon hits the ranks as per normal Urd and Skuld wind up arguing and then
    play pranks on poor Gan-chan! Laughing

    Tuesday the end of season 1 of K-ON! with extra episode 2. The girls get a chance to play a real live concert date with a couple other bands at a teen night club.This is thanks to one of Ritsu and Mio's friends.
    They also have to learn the ins and outs of playing at a night club.
    btw:first impressions: those punk girls looked totally hard core but they did turn out to be rather sweet after all.
    Also this episode reveals that Sawako sensei's name is actually:CATHERINE? or was that her stage name?

    Well it looks like all is well with the K-ON! problem, Rightstuf said they will be sending a
    replacement disc and I got an offer of a 10% discount whenever I order directly from Sentai.

    Wed. saw ep. 5 of School Live continuation of episode 4. The girls arrive at the mall to
    get more supplies but have enough time to just be girls and try on some clothes which they add
    to their supplies.
    Yuki and Kurumi come across Taomaru.
    When Taomaru acts oddly and starts to bark,Kurumi goes to investigate the cinema only to find
    a group of child zombies.
    Yuri suggests that they were left there for protection but one of them must have been infected.
    Later Miki hears Taomaru and rushes out but too lately as the others have already left the building.
    Yuki hears her screams and runs back in followed by Kurumi and Yuri.
    Yuri uses the alarm they got at the electronics store to stun the zombies and they manage to rescue Miki.
    Later she asks if they "saw a girl about my age." But they all shake their heads no.
    Comment: I wonder if the zombie who tried to get into where Miki was hiding was Kei as I doubt
    she could have made it out considering the number that the girls had to navigate by just to get in.

    Th. ep.5 of Himouto!Umaru-chanSummer time: Umaru as her UMR persona is at the arcade
    when Tabichana challenges her to a contest.They play various games together,most of which
    Umaru notes are cooperative ones; but Tachibana is satisfied she's won and asks UMR to help
    her defeat Umaru! Laughing
    Later Taihei finds Umaru resting with the ac up and Mobota fanning her.He lets in the hot air.
    After taking a bath Taihei suggests that Umaru go shopping with Ebina for new clothes as she doesn't have many outside clothes,but adds only for clothes.
    Umaru,Ebina and Mobota all go to the mall together.However Umaru winds up with some cheap
    looking clothes because she couldn't resist the new game.
    Comment: this episode shows Taihei's work place.
    Comment #2: Mobota scares the salesgirl at one of the stores the girls visit even though
    all she's doing is looking at her girl crush...Umaru!
    (Yeah Mobota could scare squirrels gathering nuts just by watching them...)

    Friday episode 6 of Bubblegum Crisis,Tokyo 2040 Sylia dons her hardsuit again to save the other
    Knight Sabers.Later Mackie makes his appearance.
    Sylia spends a lot of time explaining to Henderson,the Stingray family butler about Mackie,even though
    Henderson knows for a fact that Sylia is an only child.
    The ending was pretty hilarious with Nene chasing poor Mackie around after he accidentally opens the wrong door and gets a peek at the girls as they're changing! Laughing

    Saturday episode 4 of Girls Und Panzer the battle with St.Gloriana's.With the current commander's battle plan falling to bits just as Miho predicted it would she finds herself in command of the surviving tanks.
    She leads them into the city for a bit of urban combat and manages to destroy all but one of
    St.Gloriana's tanks.
    Unfortunately that tank has to be the one commanded by the school's overall ciommander:
    Darjeeing!
    The result is Oorai girls are forced to do the infamous Anko dance! Laughing Laughing
    Later Hana is disinherited by her mother for taking part in tankery.

    Sunday episode 4 of Monster Musume This is the introduction of Suu the Slime.
    She shows up all unexpectedly in the water curious about things. Papi is the first of the roommates to make friends with her as the others discuss the problem of the Slime.
    Kurusu gets the idea of putting the raincoat and boots on her as they are the only water soluble
    clothes he can think of.
    Later Papi takes Suu out to play and Kurusu discovers another side of Pap.
    While they're gone Smith pays a visit to the house but Miia doesn't warn Kurusu in time!

    Monday re-watched the episode of Please Teacher that centered around Mizuho and Kei's
    first real kiss.A lot of misunderstandings and embarrassing moments on the way.At one point
    Maho even threatens Kei because she thinks he's been cheating on her beloved Big Sister.
    And then when Mizuho comes across them at the end when she thinks Kei's kissed Maho and gets all emotional.
    At the end Kei makes it up with his wife by kissing her,and she still manages to get all emotional about it!

    Tuesday episode 1 of Flying Witch I can see why some people compare it to Kiki's Delivery Service,very nicely animated,etc.
    Makoto and her cat Chito arrive in Aomori prefecture to live with her second cousins.She's there so that she can attend high school while she becomes a full fledged witch.
    Unfortunately there is one problem:she has a rather bad sense of direction and so needs help
    to navigate even the streets of a small town!

    Comment: it's hard not to love Makoto from the get go as she comes across as very sweet,a bit
    ditzy but kind to everyone she meets.For instance she wants to give the mandrake to Nao as a sign of their friendship.

    UQ Holder! ep. 08
    So Negi is still semi-alive somewhere waiting to be saved by his grandson. For some dangerous/dark reason the people in the know won't support a speedy progress. And since the matter becomes critical in another 20 years there's plenty room for the show... Seeing how the show is so similar to all the other unending stories a la One Piece/Naruto I'm not surprised. I don't think it's worth it after all.

    Shoukoku no Altair
    is still going on but I don't feel like watching either. The connection to real world history is quite apparent. There's too little innovation. Overall it doesn't feel right either like things are going halfway while trying to fit for a younger audience.

    This whole season is meh

    Wed. episode 6 of School Live this was the one I did for my preview watch so I already
    think I said all that I needed to say about it,other than now it appears it and episodes 4 and 5 form
    so type of trilogy that center around Yuki and Miki working on a picture book project.Then it goes until a flashback when the others ask about Kei.
    Episode 6 picks up from there and ends where episode 4 begins.

    Th.episode 6 of Himouto! Umari-chanTaihei gets the day off and Umaru is jealous because she still has school but he reminds her about the fact she already had Summer vacation.
    Later he decides to split the room in two so they both can get some privacy but it doesn't work out.
    Finally Umaru has a birthday and even Tachibana has some flowers to give to her(OTOH: what's
    with the fish that Mobota gift wrapped for her? Rolling Eyes Laughing

    btw:the Sentai DVDs come with the Banquet Mondays specials as disc 4,I've been trying to see how many there are and how long they long but can't find much info.

    Monday re-watched episode 7 of Geneshaft for my Raw Monday night.This episode
    follows on the events that happened after Larry and the other two Twentieth century astronauts
    disappear.
    Mika is sent in the Shaft to do some more investigation of the Ring,with Mir as her backup.
    The bugs haven't been worked out still and it keeps freezing up on her(who worked on the MS for the thing...Microsoft or Apple? Laughing Laughing Laughing )
    Mir gets annoyed and finally decides to pull a switch just as Mika as finally gotten around to re-programming the Shaft drive.
    Everyone is surprised at the result as it shoots a beam at the Ring that destroys it,but half a
    dozen takes it place.
    Hiroto then orders the ship out of the region.
    Later Mir confronts Dolce and the rest of the debugger crew but they don't know what program
    Mika put into the Shaft to make it act that way.
    Hiroto starts to act irrationally and Mario as his under-Captain orders him off the bridge.
    they finally arrive at their destination.
    A shuttle departs and is seen landing at the base.
    Sneak welcomes his agent on board the Bilkris: Remi Levi-Strauss!

    Tuesday episode 2 of Flying Witch It starts off with Makoto getting unexpected visitor:
    the spirit who is the Harbinger of Spring.Chisanu is scared of him and he makes up by giving her
    a bowl of freshly cut flowers.Makoto gives him some of the Mandrake root that she has carefully
    prepared.
    Later she dreams that Nao has swum all the way to Yokohama to visit her.On her neck is the
    kanji for Excellent Luck.
    She dreams this in class and passes a note to tell Nao.
    Later she tells Nao and Kei about an old witch's superstition about such dreams.
    They stop as Kei finds some bakke on the side of the side walk and begins to gather them;Makoto
    wants to pick some by the telephone pole but Kei tells her they're no good because that's
    where the dogs pee! Laughing Laughing
    Nao decides not to go with them because she's excited to know what good luck will bring her.
    At home Chisanu shows her dislike of bakke and Makoto teases Kei that he would make a
    good girl because of his excellent cooking skills.
    In the epilog Nao is still sitting at her family's shop waiting for some 'cute guy' to walk by...

    Wed. episode 7 of School Live,the girls decide to write and send letters to the outside world in hopes that someone will get them.Miki sends one to Kei hoping that she made it out of the mall ok.
    The only problem is how to send them.
    Yuki finds some balloons and Miki and Kurumi venture down to where the scuba club had their
    room and come back with a tank of helium.
    Kurumi also tries to capture a pigeon (and succeeds!).
    Funniest part of the episode was Kurumi trying to capture the pigeon..at first she wanted to simply
    bash one with her shovel but Yuri ruled that out reminding that they needed it alive! Laughing
    So she finally makes a trap to catch one.
    This episode also shows that Yuki does have moments of clarity when she is aware of what is going on,but mostly when she sleeps.

    Thursday episode 7 of Himouto! Umaru-chan.Himouto gets another day off from school and spends it mainly pestering Taihei to do stuff for her.She gets pissed later when he dumps a box containing extra faces for her Hatsune style doll.
    Later Taihei and Umaru go to eat at a ramen shop with Ebina.Taihei can't stand the spicier
    style and Umaru switches with him.
    After work the next night Bomba accompanies Taihei home,but Umaru is asleep.
    When Bomba gets home it is revealed he is Kirie's older brother.
    Then Umaru and Tachibana go to an out of the way store and gets some treats.
    Finally Taihei meets a cat in a familiar looking street thinking that he and Umaru had been down there before but it turns out to be a memory from when he was little and it was their mom not
    Umaru.

    Saturday episode 6 of Girls Und Panzer When a scouting expedition to track down Saunders'
    flag tank goes awry Miho orders a trap by luring the flag tank to chase the scout team (IIRC it was either Duck or Rabbit).At the same time she sends a false message to make sure that Kay and the rest of the Saunders team are out of the way. But when Kay realizes they've been duped she orders
    all but three of the Saunders tanks back because she doesn't like to have an unfair advantage.
    After the tanks collide Duck and Rabbit are 'destroyed' by Saunders and soon Anglerfish are on their own.
    They make it to a ridge followed by Saunders' long range tank.
    Hana fires a few seconds before Saunders' Firefly and hits the flag tank seconds before Anglerfish is hit and Oorai wins its first match.
    Later Kay congraduates Miho and tells Alisia they'll have a talk because she doesn't condone
    what she did.
    The girls are about to celebrate when news comes that Mako's grandmother is in the hospital.
    Mako is about to swim to the ship when Maho walks up and volunteers her school's helicopter...

    Sunday episode 6 of Monster Musume Miia is molting but after an accident while trying to cook her hands are bandaged and so Kurusu volunteers to help her.
    Later Papi says she is about to lay an egg and the rest of the girls beat up on poor Kurusu until they realize: 1. Kurusu didn't do anything to Papi and 2.The egg is infertile.
    Turns out Harpies lay eggs whenever they're stressed.
    Meanwhile a pervert pretending to be a documentarian filmmaker gains access to the house.
    But Suu's imitating of him finally help wake up the rest of the gang as to his true purpose.
    Later after they chase the perv away Agent Smith turns up and admits that they've known about the guy.
    Miia makes her best dish:Poached Eggs!
    Then she admits she can't taste a thing during molting season!! Laughing
    In the end the pervert is seen talking with something large and spidery on his ceiling.
    She wraps him up in one of her cocoons....

    Comment:Yeah it was Arachnea...interesting that she shows up the same episode as
    The Monster Girl Squad in episode 7!
