Romances at the Shallow End of the Pool.

Allen takes a look at Taisho Otome Fairy Tale and finds it rather lacking. As in the core ingredients are all there, but it would appear the were just all tossed in the pot at the same time and not cooked long enough. Not sure why I went with the food allegory here, but there we go.

And that's that. Next week will be asking the ol' question "but what about the children?" And the answer is not going to be pleasant. See you all then.

Camp is Work, Work is Life.

This week, Nicoletta and I take a look at the Laid-Back Camp movie, and was more than a bit relieved to find out that our main team of girls reaching adulthood doesn't really take anything away from it. Of course, season 3 returns to their highschool years, but it was still nice to see this nod towards their futures.

And that's that. See you again next week.

Getting Your Just Desserts.

Allen went to the theater for this week's review. He watched Spy x Family: Code White and finds it just as appealing as the TV series. I just watched the movie myself -- in a semi-local theater, even -- so I can definitely vouch for it.

And that was our mission this week. Next week, we'll be watching another movie based on a TV series that will hopefully measure up. See you all then.

Let Your Concierge Be Your Guide.

Because... y'know, that's their job and stuff. And in Allen's pick of the week, the rather straightforwardly named The Concierge, our protag's job seems to have gone to the dogs. Or rather, the dogs -- and all other animals, apparently -- have gone to her for help.

And that's that for this week. Next week is a bit up in the air, but we'll see what shows up.

Matrix-level Hint-dodging On Display.

Allen is on point today with The Dangers in My Heart: Season 2, which he finds even better than the first season. Sometimes, massive weirdos really do deserve the best.

And so it goes. Next week, work is going to the dogs and all the other animals as well, apparently, so see you then.

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.
