A review almost 40 years in the making, and another...not so much

Today's first show - well, movie actually - comes from Allen, who gives us a look at the two Haikara-San: Here Comes Miss Modern movies, based on a shoujo manga from the late 1970's, and the first animated adaption of the source material since 1979!

Stig and I then glance at How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord Omega, the disappointing spring 2021 sequel to the fun 2018 anime How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord.

See you Monday when Stig returns to uploads.

Toy(ed with) Story

Hey, everyone. Stig's on vacation for the next couple of weeks, so for the first time in many years (May 2014 in fact!), I'll be doing the site update!

Today's show comes from Allen, who gives us a look at Don't Toy with Me, Miss Nagatoro, feeling that the self-proclaimed lead goes a biiiit too far with her teasing, even for the "girl teases boy she obviously likes" genre of comedy anime.

Allen will return again next week with another review, as will Stig and I with a review of a certain isekai show that aired just this last spring. See you next Monday!

A Blooming Second Opinion.

Well, I synchroed the show with Tim, noting that he was a bit less pleased with it than me, so here is his second opinion of Is the Order a Rabbit? BLOOM. And yep, that sounds about right.

And that's that. Next week, Allen will be bringing his best teasing game. Or his worst, depending on what he thinks about it. See you then. Well... which is to say someone else will be filling in for me these next two weeks, since I will be away on vacation.

The Doctor is..... in.

And we ended up on monster girls. I watched through Monster Girl Doctor, and pretty much went "eeeeeeeeeeh, it's OK, I guess." And it is.

Next week, we'll be getting another second look. Them bunnies, I guess. See you then.

0350

And so, Twin Spica now has a twin review, as I was more than happy to do a second opinion of it after having watched it as part of our traditional synchro sessions. It was a 2003 show that looked more like a 90's show, but still holds up really, really well by today's storytelling standards.

And that's that. Next week, we might have demon lords. We might have monster girls. Or we might have something entirely different altogether. See you all then.

The Apostrophe is Heaven's Comma.

That is to say, I had to read the title of Allen's next project -- Heaven Official's Blessing - several times to not read it as "Heaven's Official". Even weirder, Allen lets another Haoliner show step even higher up on the quality ladder. Clearly, me and Mel started on the wrong end.

Well, that's it for this week. Next week, we'll be going to the moon... if Allen doesn't beat me to it, that is.
