I have nothing entertaining to say here.
そらのおとしもの / Sora no Otoshimono Episode 09 — No intro song? Interesting, what’s going on with Nymph and Synapse. As usual, Eishirou’s entertaining monologues are both insightful and idiotic.
Tomo-chan gets drunk off soda, Sohara is still my favorite character, and Nymph is back. Well, of course.
Nymph fails at being evil, and Tomoki hits on her because Ikaros fails at pretending to be human.
This anime still has the BEST CHARACTER ANIMATION EVER. Even without any story or joking, the art is HILARIOUS by itself.
WTFLOL (and even a Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann ref~)
It’s still obscene and kind of random, but it’s good where it counts. And yeah, good job kidnapping Tomoki, you just ended up falling more in love with him.
And why does Ikaros randomly kiss Tomoki out of the blue. That sucked… I want it to be some epic climax where they kiss, not a totally random scene at the end of the anime. However, the ED makes up for it, so great. Great new song, as usual.
If there were less naked people, this would’ve been a 10/10. You can tell a -lot- of work goes into the making of each episode of this anime, which is why I really enjoy most episodes of Sora no Otoshimono.
Kampfer Episode 09 — This anime has gotta be one of the worst this season (although others seem to think it’s the best). To tell the truth, when Fall 2009 first began, Kampfer was at the top of my list. However, it’s a) not funny b) not touching c) not cute d) not a unique story e) not unique in ANY way actually. Also, a) every single girl AND BOY is in love with Natsuru, b) Natsuru is a total idiot, c) what the hell is going on with the plot anyways?
The voice actor jokes used to be funny, but now they’re just stupid. There are new characters every episode, all of them are so dumb it hurts to watch Kampfer now. I don’t get how Sakura is secretly evil suddenly. I don’t get how everybody is too dumb to realize anything. I don’t get the lame mind control. It’s so lamee it hurts.
Okay, this just went over the “T” rated-level. Why is this being shown on public television again?
Eh, this episode actually thickened the plot, so it wasn’t as horrible as usual. A+. [6.5/10]
真・恋姫無双 / Shin Koihime Musou Episode 09 — Enshou (or whatever her name was)’s attendant looks like a flight attendant. x3
A public service announcement from Shuri: Be careful of lightning on cloudy days!
Hm, I’m pretty sure that in Ancient China people didn’t wear swimsuits around everyday so casually. Still, though, with the censoring. If you’re going to show naked girls doing obscene things (which I would rather not see in the first place), why are you then censoring it? o-o
This ep was pretty deep for a Koihime ep. Usually it’s just *naked girls bath scene*, and then *clothes get ripped of in random battle*, and then some corny line that was supposed to be touching in some irrelevant way. AAA+. [8.5/10]
Next ep is Shuri and her new side-character.
にゃんこい！ / Nyan Koi! Episode 09 — Wow, I’m two episodes behind on this.
I love this anime, because I like every character — Junpei, Kaede (lol, love interest in Kampfer is also named Kaede), Nagi, Imouto, twins, and even the cats. The humor is of a different nature than Seitokai, so that’s why it’s also in my top 3 Most-Looked-Forward-To list (see below).
And the twins (“tsu-ins”, more like — yay, I made a Japanese pun!). And then Nagi makes a stunning dramatic appearance XD. And then the random mailwoman makes her random appearance. And Junpei is in a swimming pool with 6 fantastic girls that are all in love with him. What would you do in this situation? ^-^
The 2nd half of the episode is focused on Sumiyoshi-san. Who is not my favorite character, by the way.
And it’s hilarious how Imouto and Mom try to track down all detective-like how many/which girls visited Junpei ><
Woah, next episode is on the twins. SS, for the first half, but since I don’t like Sumiyoshi-san, S. [9/10]
にゃんこい！ / Nyan Koi! Episode 10 — The pre-opening scene… was that a parody of something, or was it “real”? I can totally see the twins as magical girls >.<
See, another thing I like about Nyan Koi! are the little jokes — the things you don’t always notice, but when you do, are so hilarious. It’s one of those things, where somebody puts a heck of a lot of effort into something, but only a few people ever notice, and even fewer convey their appreciation to that somebody. To refrain from quoting Holden, I’ll just say, “That’s so depressing.”
… magical girl transformation scenes, check. Spirits, check. Magical powers, check. Nyan Koi! has now become magical-girl Bakemonogatari or something. XD
This is so… um… it’s so hilarious and odd, it’s not even comment-able. AND THEN THE MAILMAN APPEARS ahahahaha!
Kyaah, this anime is really just too cute and hilarious for me to give it anything less than an S. By the way, S. [9/10]
こばと。 / Kobato Episode 08 — Kitten… Fall 2009 has too much about cats. And I agree, “Milk” is totally a cute name for a cat~
Fujimoto is so depressing. Everything else is so cheerful, but Fujimoto makes this so depressing, he counteracts the entire rest of the cast.
“I think… the kitten reminded him of himself.” Great, now let’s go into a Catcher in the Rye-esque analysis of all the symbols in this episode. =_=
*kitten clutches at chest… oh wait, Kobato doesn’t have breasts*
Wow, last episode’s Character of the Day actually reappeared. :O And are Chiho+Chise going to become main characters? Looks like this is gonna be like Chobits 2. XD
And yeah… give her your phone number. =_= Kobato is too dumb for anything. Also, in Chobits wasn’t Chitose some super-genius? Wonder if she also has her secret lab like in Chobits ><
Wow, the nice lady waaay back from Episode 1 reappears to take in the kitten… and wow, Fujimoto-san is so secretly nice. Sigh, what a nice conclusion.
And so, the episode ends happily ever after in typical CLAMP style. S. [9/10]
Aand… Kobato sings~~ It’s an epic song, and the accompaniment animation makes it even more dramatic. I’m surprised this is only the 2nd time she’s sung in 8 episodes.
Anyways, this was as sweet as any CLAMP episode ever was. Great ep.
フェアリーテイル/ Fairy Tail Episode 09 — When the most intelligent character in an anime is a winged cat, you know said anime will be entertaining.
This next episode was great as well; I see Fairy Tail is getting better every ep. S. [9/10]
Whoa, next episode is Natsu VS Erza.
そらのおとしもの / Sora no Otoshimono Episode 10 — Yeah, ep 10 came out by the time I got here.
Complaint #1: Everybody’s breasts are too big. I have a problem with that.
Episode title: “天使の旋律（ことば）の向かう先”, “Tenshi no Senritsu (Kotoba) no Mukau Saki”, with “kotoba” being the furigana/ruby for “senritsu”. Basically, it would be translated as “Where the Melodies (Words) of Angels Go”. “Senritsu”, read in Chinese as “xuan2 lü4”, means melody, and the act of placing “kotoba” — words — above the kanji for melodies is another example of this extremely interesting technique of Japanese writers. See, episode titles are always so entertaining and educational.
“Forming a band”? Cough… K-On!… and yeah, I see how the title relates now ^_^; and raise your hand if you want a childhood friend like Sohara-san for a waifu.
Wow… poor Nymph… this is just sad >.<; isn’t that child abuse?
Wow, Sorami Acadamy’s orchestra is TINY. And they play music that we could play in 6th grade. At least the Sora no Otoshimono animators can draw violins correctly… cough at Shugo Chara!.
Ikaro’s singing is great. No complaints. That was completely totally sweet. It was like, Kobato-type sweet. Wow, the ending animation this episode is bloopers of scenes that were already funny. Not that interesting, they run out of ideas pretty soon for funny things to do to random scenes. And great, now everybody is getting drunk on orange juice this episode. =D; S. [9/10]
こばと。 / Kobato Episode 09 — Aaand a new Kobato ep is out. Silly Kobato-chan. The “healing peoples’ feelings” thing has like 99% similarity to ×××HoLiC. Kobato has a random habit of announcing her intentions to the camera.
Also, normally, would you tell a random girl you just met on the street everything about your personal life and all your secret feelings and thought? No? I thought not. See, that’s the main logical issue with Kobato.
Technically… Kobato is… stalking these people… you know? I know she’s trying to heal their hearts and blah, buut… borderline obsession xD
Also, how come every time somebody is troubled in this anime, they sit on the same goddamn swing set?
Uwahh… this turned out soooo sweet~~! It’s almost sickeningly sweet, except CLAMP knows what variables to manipulate to make it just “sweet”. AAA. [8/10]
“Anime I Look Forward to the Most Each Week”:
||To Aru Kagaku no Railgun
||Seitokai no Ichizon
||Sora no Otoshimono
||Shin Koihime Musou
||Umineko no Naku Koro ni
These are kinda-maybe-not-really in order.
Shots from this post follow.
*I’m secretly evil, and I’m so good at hiding it.*
*kitten clutches at chest… oh wait, Kobato doesn’t have breasts*
*omigahd, double vision! did my contacts fall out?*
