First Impressions: Gabriel Dropout, Episode 1

Okay, I thought Interviews With Monster Girls was funny, but then I watched Gabriel Dropout and I was left cackling like a madman. The show is seriously hilarious. It sorta suckers you into it, too. It starts with a seemingly innocent premise filled with bubbly characters that radiate joy. Up in heaven, a group of angels surround the exceptionally gifted angel Gabriel, congratulating her on graduating Angel School. Having graduated, Gabriel pursues further education down in earth.  The group of angels send her off all teary-eyed, saying how much they’ll miss her. And so Gabriel descends down to heaven, ecstatic about studying humans firsthand. It’s all innocently cutesy stuff until she experiences life on earth firsthand.

Nice Smelling Butts and Card Tricks: Keijo, Episode 11


After a recent draw, Episode 11 continues on the next set of battles between the rival schools of Suruga and Setouchi and atop a castle at that. With Setouchi’s lineup consisting of Kawai, Nozomi, Rukodou, and some new character no one really knows anything about, Kogatana, you could say I was more than a little hyped. Part of the reason I was excited for this episode was because I was curious as to just what kind of crazy butt power would result from Nozomi’s training arc. That and it’s been a little while since we’ve seen Kawai fight. If Kawai was ever to be pushed to her limits, it would be in this match, especially after you consider who she’s facing. Suruga let loose, unveiling some of their star players such as their number two, Maya; the buttwall fighter, Yokosugi (who is pretty much a gimmick throwaway character); the cool beauty Midori; and the Magician’s bust Hikari. The lineup for both teams were stacked, assuring what could only be a fight of insanely comedic proportions. Boy, did this episode deliver.

Fall 2016 Catchup: Keijo!!!!!!!!


Navigating through any social media outlets during this anime season, you’d be hard-pressed to not find any gifs or screen-caps of anime girls in swimsuits strutting their stuff. No, everyone didn’t suddenly become obsessed with ecchi overnight. It turns out, girls clashing their booties and boobies makes for an explosively exciting sport. And this is exactly what Keijo!!!!!!!! is all about.

Yuri!!! on Ice — Initial Impressions


Alright, I’ll admit it. I’ve been living under a rock for taking this long to watch Yuri!!! on Ice. I had a hard time believing I’d even remotely care about a show whose main focus is ice skating, but evidently I was wrong. And for that, I deserve to have that same rock beaten against my head for how foolish I’ve been to have even started this series so late into the season. To put it simply, Yuri!!! on Ice’s first episode was amazing. Continue reading “Yuri!!! on Ice — Initial Impressions”

Hina’s horrible bento and Rei’s formidable Rival — March Comes in Like a Lion – Episode 4


Chapter 7

This chapter of March Comes in like a Lion is yet another endearing episode on Hinata and Nikaido. While Rei visits the Kawamoto sister’s house, he learns about Takahashi, the baseball player Hina has been madly in love with for quite some time now. Seeing Hina visually flustered over trying to decide what bento to make for Takahashi’s game is adorable.
