This episode was definitely a very weird one. While watching it, I had a bunch of moments where I thought to myself, “what on earth am I watching.” Especially that bedroom scene with Chiyuri and Haruyuki. I tried my best to go in and not think too much about it (in a sexual manner), but it was way too much. I had to cringe through that part just because it was such a horrible display of “how to talk with a girl in her own bedroom.” Haruyuki might seem to be able to score and make the hottest chick in the school interested in him, but he sure as hell does not know what the hell to do when you enter into a girl’s bedroom.

I have seen magical girls transform. I have seen magical boys transform (Kore Wa Zombie Desu Ka). I have seen sailor moon transform. I have also seen shounen characters transform into a higher power (Ichigo/Naruto/Sasuke). I have also seen vampires transform into their monster forms. There was even multiple Frieza transformation sequences. But I have never seen a fat, short pig transform. This transformation sequence nailed the show for me. Like seriously..one of the most badass things I’ve seen this season so far.
Animes that star three female leads around the same age somehow always have these three combination of people: an outgoing person, a mindless dolt, and a serious person (which is always the coolest). Minami-ke and Mitsudomoe are the first two animes I think of in terms of character similarity. Now I loved both Minami-ke and Mitsudomoe, but Hanamaru Youchien does something which makes me really not like it very much. I mean the idea of putting mature ideas into four-five year old children is really not that funny. It robs them of their innocence and when you put mature ideas into something, you necessarily think you cannot forgive their actions if they do something wrong. I tend to then hate the character, like I do with Anzu.
From the director of “Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo” brings you Summer Wars! I thoroughly enjoyed Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo and it is one of my top favorite movies. Now as for Summer Wars, I’ll make it clear. For me, I did not like it as much compared to Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo. The storyline was definitely intriguing, and Summer Wars virtual world concept was definitely interesting. It reminded me of a certain Digimon movie where they also had to fight through a network. That was so nostalgic, and I thought that the art was also similar to those digimons. However, Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo was far superior because it managed to pluck a few heart strings in me, and the romance and story was definitely much more interesting. That doesn’t mean that Summer Wars was bad though, and it is definitely not a waste of time to watch it. It is merely a preparation for those who expected Summer Wars to top Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo.
Bakemonogatari. What can I say about this anime? It is simply an amazing anime that could be called one of SHAFT’s top works. As a personal fan of SHAFT, I have enjoyed most of their works and this anime certainly has all of the conditions and qualities to say that…if someone has watched any other SHAFT productions, they would immediately recognize their work style and definitely their unique animation.
