On the plus side, we are now at the point of the season where we remember maybe 10% of the characters’ names, which is an achievement to be proud of. On the minus, this was kind of a sucky week for anime, with a lot of shows treading water after their introductory arcs. Fortunately, Bakuon!! is here to save us with its tales of Jesus’ favorite motorcycle, and I discover that a cartoon I saw when I was practically a toddler was an anime, meaning I’ve been an anime fan for even longer than I thought.

In other news, someone on the show is investigating the massive, nubile world of cosplay boobs (not telling you who), we learn that rampaging school girls in ankle-length pleated skirts were once a real matter of public concern, High School Fleet fails to garner the Official Navy Seal of Approval,  and Sal has a friend of a friend who may be a Tonkatsu DJ…or maybe just a regular DJ? I’m just going to assume all DJ-ing involves fried delicacies now.
