wrong; there is no dirt in a hole

とある科学の超電磁砲 / To Aru Kagaku no Railgun Episode 14 — No Touma.

However, this was a great way to end the Level Upper arc. Which, surprisingly, still hasn’t completely ended apparently.

All this episode really was, though, was characters from To Aru Majutsu no Index making cameo appearances and saying one or two cool lines that are supposed to be inspirational. A+. [6.5/10]

Fairy Tail Episode 13 — Natsu versus badguys was cool. Lucy’s battle was facepalm-inducing. C. [4/5]

Omamori Himari Episode 01 — Not bad. Too much fanservice…

This anime feels like a combination of elements from various animes: the main character looks like Mai (Kanon), the main character’s childhood friend is like Yuuka (11eyes) and Mai doubles as Kusakabe-senpai, the school scenes totally remind me of Da Capo, and actually, the childhood friend reminds me more of Nemu (Da Capo) than Yuuka. The aka–whatever… the spirit/demon/things… they remind me of the Tayutai from Tayutama (except not as cute). Of course, as many have stated, the premise is also similar to Shakugan no Shana, although in my opinion they aren’t that similar.

Geez, this week’s anime have all been failures so far. B. [5/10]

Baka to Test to Shokanjuu Episode 02 — Once again, enjoyable intro animation.

Lawll… “knowledge literally is power” ><; I like the setting, camera positions, and overall animation flow of this anime. It reminds me of a whole lot of things that I don’t feel like blogging about.

Wow… this is TOTALLY the next Seitokai. That conversation with Himeji was more Seitokai than Seitokai.

Hm, the “summoning” thing is still kind of borderline stupid, though. I guess it’s original though; instead of Index-style telekinesis or magic or whatnot.

Of course, this anime doesn’t take its own plot seriously so it barely matters. The ending was so LAWL… Best anime this season. Actually… only good anime this season. SS. [10/10]

Hanamaru Kindergarten Episode 01 — THIS. IS. THE. CUTEST. THING. THAT. HAS. EVER. BEEN. MADE.

They have outdone themselves again… first Evangelion, then FLCL, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, and the like… and now they are mowing through the competition with their newest work, Hanamaru Kindergarten. GAINAX can’t get any awesomer than this.

However, not only are the kindergartners cute, with unique, appealing character designs, but the adults also possess a wide variety of personalities, and their relationships tie in with the children’s antics to provide a most entertaining episode.

The adult lead has an entertaining personality… it has a rather Watanuki-kun feel to it, and he even looks 99.9% similar to Watanuki.

Anzu and her mother’s relationship to the lead is especially entertaining. Anzu’s mother was his upperclassman in high school; I think he liked her. Their parting words, or something, was that “My child will grow up to be just like me!” And five years later or something, we realize how true those words are >.<

Anzu’s character is inexplicable. Her two kindergarten friends so far include Hiiragi (who is chibi Ichijou, 100.1%) and… that shy girl. Forgot her name.

Ugh… so overflowingly cute. SS. [10/10]

I have to study for finals now, so I’ll save the rest of my pile of winter 2010 animes for… um… sometime later.

    During PE.:
    Justin: “There is a hole in the ground. You fill it up half-way. How much is left?”
    Ben: “Half a hole.”
    Justin:”A hole is a hole. You cannot have half a hole.”
    Ben: haha~.
