"I am ac...ting into overdrive.

I'm also late, but who's paying attention to that, eh? Eheh...

Anyway, Mippa makes a welcome return with another review, and she got a great one for you; Glass Mask, a 2005 remake of another classic shoujo drama series, and she's got nothing but standing ovations all around.

I'm... considerably less enthused with my own pick of the week, namely Mushibugyo, a shounen horror series that loses the horror part as it goes, along with any semblance of sense. And it looked so promising during the first couple of episodes too.

Oh well, one out of two shouldn't be too bad, I guess. See you guys again next week.

A ninja needs her back supported too.

And how? That's what we're about to find out with Senran Kagura, a show that has a much looser grasp on what it means to be a ninja than Katsuragi has on all the boobies. Yes, it's that kind of show, which might not need to be a bad thing, depending on what you're looking for.

They seem to have assassinated the other reviews too. Oh well, I'm sure we'll find something for next week as well. See you all then. (Unless you're a ninja too, in which case I guess I won't.)

Just a light drizzle today.

So yeah, I guess our review team have caught up with the last season as we've got only one review for you today. It's a good one, though; I had the accidental pleasure of experiencing Yuyushiki, a show that managed to outdo a rather long string of comedies in the funnybone department. This show is NOT to be confused with YuruYuri, though. Seriously, don't do it.

Well, I'm afraid that's all he wrote this time around. I'll have some more ready for you next week, though.

Maybe she should consider a year abroad.

Two new reviews today.

Dallas starts us off with a show abbreviated as Watamote, because Jesus Christ, that original title is a bit of a mouthful. Still, he's quite satisfied with the show itself, though he does of course not recommend the protagonist's lifestyle.

Tim and I are... less fortunate. See, Kinmoza -- which is an abbrevation for the somewhat less cumbersome Kin'iro Mosaic -- was a bit of a disappointment as adorable slice-of-lives went. At least it proved something we both really wanted to know; being just cute isn't enough. There needs to be something behind it all.

Well, we'll be back next week, so stay tuned.
