Can You Really Call It HIGH School if it's in Hell?!'s a demon realm, which might not specifically be hell, but.... this week, Allen takes a look at Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun again, and what do you know... the second season is a step up from the first. How could one improve a show where the enrollment song is all about eating humans, I have no idea, but the show did it.

How does one go up from there? We'll just have to wait and see if it happens. See you again later.

To Your Ragedy.

Allen's pick of the week is To Your Eternity, and comes to the realization that he doesn't really appreciate tragedy porn. That might be a bit of a flippant way to describe this show (and that's on me, not Allen), but it does kinda point out the main thing you have to appreciate to get anything out of this show.

And once again, that's that. Next week, we'll once again be sequestered (and semestered) among the demons. See you all on the flipside.

Home is Where the Hurt is.

Hello, everyone. Over the last year and a half, most people here have probably gotten far more intimately familiar with their homes than they cared for, but as our protagonist of the week is about to find out, it might be worse to not have a home at all. Dragon Goes House-Hunting puts us in the presence of Letty, who faces the combined problem of being thrown out and also being a weak dragon in a world that seems to favor fighting stats very much. The show is amusing in a very self-aware way, though, so by all means go along with Letty on this new adventure.

Next week, Allen's gonna take us on a quite different kind of soul searching, so join us all then. Laters.

Hope Springs Eternal, but Hopefully With a Better Animation Budget.

Allen's pick of the week is Sailor Moon Eternal: The Movie -- technically two movies that I assume follow up on each other -- which he was pretty happy about. It shares the same aspect as the latest incarnation of the Sailor Moon series; Crystal, which was a more close rendition to the original manga that garnered some infamy for having really, really awful animation. I can only assume that the following seasons and these movies rectified this.

And with that, I bid you another good week. Next week, we'll join someone in their search for some nice digs. See you all then.
