Girls Onna Plane!

It just occured to me that it would be hellishly amusing if anyone civilian in this show pointed to the sky and went "Is it a bird?! IS IT A PLANE?!" because the latter is what half of the beings in Girly Air Force are. Yes, the tagline "50% of one thing and 50% of the other thing makes 100% madcap shenanigans" would liven up this show a bit, I think, because the worst part about it is that it's a bit drab despite doing a few things quite well. And there's not nearly enough jet fighter nerdery, damn it! Or shenanigans. At least of the funny variety.

Next week will see us back on a more spiritual side of things, Y-OKai?

The Adventures of The Little Grey Ones...

Yes, Allen takes a look at The Promised Neverland, a show about a group of quite special children facing a very special problem, and what it takes to rise beyond the occasion, because to the occasion simply isn't going to be enough. It's a great series, he says, but it's not an easy watch. So be warned.

Next week, we'll face an entirely different threat, although it's kind of a dance we've done before. See you all then.

Perfectly Average On a Common Day.

Is there such a thing as a perfect man (or woman?) Well, for the men's side, Allen brings us Haven't you heard? I'm Sakamoto!, who finds this aspect of perfection rather boring, all things considered.

At least the victims of this particular take on humanity is better off than what next week's protagonists will have to face, because boy howdy, that's not going to be pretty. See you all then.

Boobacious Miniskirt Ninja.

I have forgotten when I reviewed it, but there was a time when I watched something called Senran Kagura: Ninja Flash! At the time, I had no particular context to go on, but that didn't matter, because the show was kind of alright. So I was a bit more optimistic with Senran Kagura: Shinovi Master, and... well, I think it's easy to tell that even the creators didn't have much of a high opinion about this second attempt at an animated feature. Better stick to the games, I guess.

That's our lot for now. Next week, we'll all see how we just can't win! That's just swell, isn't it? See you then?

The Mother of all Mothers...

Well, the competition is probably quite fierce here, but Allen takes a look at Maquia: When The Promised Flower Blooms, and finds it... pretty much amazing. You might want to watch it foreveeeeeeeeeer!

I... wish I could say that about next week's show, but.... yeah, no. That ain't gonna happen. See you all then.

Let's Hear it for the Nasty Boy.

Tim is a bit puzzled by Holmes of Kyoto and its tendency to label our main lead as a "nasty Kyoto boy". Is it a cultural thing? Well, it was an odd synchro, although still an underwhelming show, given its potential.

Thank you all for joining us again this week. Next week we got some more flowery language for you all. See you then.
