White Moon Knight

Well the season is officially over, with two shows continuing into the next season, Log Horizon and Cross Ange. Reviewing today is Yuki Yuna wa Yusha de Aru, Trinity Seven, Madan no Ou to Vandis, and Ai Tenchi-Muyo. I was about three episodes into Sora no Method, but after reading Jinx’s take on it, I am fairly confident I’d be wasting my time. I’m also still catching up on a couple other shows, because Christmas, and Steam sales, are a bitch.

Fall Midterm Part One: Dark and Dark

So how has this season been stacking up so far? Well, it could be better, but compared to last? Better. I only managed to drop one show off the watch list, and even then, I have a feeling there are a bunch others I am missing, but with so little time to chug through what I have, I dare not take on more. There is just so much to soak in that it’s hard to get through everything.

But here is the first half of my Fall 2014 impressions ranked from best to worst. It was sort of hard to rank-and-file them, so rankings are a bit liberal.

Mad Science

A pile of more first looks as the season continues to spread eagle for us: Ai Tenchi-Muyo, Amagi Brilliant Park, Denki Gai no Honya-san, Trinity Seven, Ino Battle wa Nichijo-kei, and Chaika: Avenging Battle. Impressions continue to be fairly strong across the board, but there are a few niggles here and there. First weeks always tend to impress though, so we’ll see how things are after the Kool-Aid man busts through the wall.

Tenchi Universe: Episodes 1-13


Ah, Tenchi Universe. Trying to understand the Tenchi-Muyo “Universe” can be difficult, so much that the new Funimation package art has to try to draw a diagram of where you are in said Universe. The first full season TV show, Tenchi Universe takes you on a time and space adventure with Tenchi, Ayeka, Ryoko, and everyone else as they pretty much reenact Star Wars, harem-style.
