I've Got A Fever, and the Only Solution is More Ugliness?

Well, thematically, that's what's going on in Allen's pick of the week, season one of The Apothecary Diaries. He seems to appreciate the frankness of the material and the cleverness of the main character, even if the show makes no secrets of what happens to girls less clever than her who also captures the Emperor's eye.

Anyway, next week might promise more danger, but will probably have a bit less than you'd think. See you all then.

"Can You Sign What I Sign?"

Allen goes full power Shoujo this week with A Sign of Affection this week, which he finds a reasonably appealing show, if a little too unproblematic. Love should never run smoothly, right?

And that's that for this week. We might need some medicine for what comes next week. See you all then.

Ah, Young Controversial Love....

Allen watches Happy-Go-Lucky Days, a movie that's a series of segments, telling the stories of young people coming to terms with their feelings for each other, and some of the baggage they -- or others -- bring into the equation. He's... none to pleased with it, mostly due to feelings of ick when it comes to some of the characters and what they do. And probably also because the movie is a bit.... slow?

Aaand that's that for this week. Next week will definitely be a more affectional deal for all parts concerned. See you all then.

A Place Further Than The Bottle Rocket Can Fly.

We really had our hopes up for this one, but as both Tim and I were to find out, the best thing about Stardust Telepath were its first few episodes. Beyond that, competitions await and some quite frankly baffling decisions, both by character and by show. I wanted to like this show, I really did. And so did Tim.

I'm happy to report that next week will be no better. Wait... no! No, I'm not. The things I do for hints. Well, see you next week.

Space Is Still So Far Away...

Well, we didn't get anything prepared for this week, so... take a break and let's meet again next week. (It's nearly done.)

Akuma-kun Could If He Would.

Allen finds a bit of a curiosity in Akuma-kun, the ONA sequel of an original Akuma-kun TV series, which he finds quite entertaining despite the typical tropes it can't seem to escape entirely.

Well, at least we got a fun one for this week despite the lack of space. But maybe next week. See you then.
