Summary: Another one of them K-On clones, only this time I think the creators really wanted to make a magical girl anime- so why didn’t they? Do they get, like, a tax break for making another one of these “four girls in a club that does nothing” shows? It boggles the mind. Anyway, it’s watchable and pretty inoffensive thus far, but also a tad dull- more than a tad if the references don’t amuse you as much as they do me.
Summary: This episode was pretty much pure wonderful for me, but I’m almost afraid to say anything nice about it in fear that it’s going to do nothing but tread water for episodes 2-11 so the two main characters can vaguely acknowledge that they love each other during the finale like it’s a surprise. Nevertheless, the first installment of a Japanese girl moving to Paris in the 1890s (or thereabouts) is beautifully animated and sweet, without ever crossing the line into saccharine territory.
Summary: Like last season’s Soft Tenni, only with basketball and much more blatant fanservice with even younger characters. Le sigh- why does it feel like my task as an aniblogger is to continually try to find redeeming value in shows clearly meant for pedophiles?
Streaming: Nowhere yet, but apparently it’s licensed by Sentai Filmworks now. That was fast.
