“I… I… never captured a spirit before.”
Haqua’s admission that she is a spirit capturing virgin reminds me of Mimi agonizing over sleeping with Nick when Mimi is a virgin yet pretends to have slept with half the rugby team. Needless to say, it didn’t go well for Mimi. (She tried to straddle Nick cowgirl-style but instead throws up on him. This then causes him to bonk her best friend. The best friend, overcome with guilt, then tries to make it up to Mimi by overdosing on alcohol. Skins is awesome TV.) And it didn’t go that well for Haqua… I guess… wow… honesty is a better policy than boastful lying. Who would have thunk it?
Best Shows of the Year (So Far): Skins (UK), which had probably the best final episode of any dramatic series I’ve ever seen… Game of Thrones, which features the creepiest incest this side of Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko… Madoka, which features everyone’s favorite Kyubey… Nichijou, which features Professor and Nano… NBA Playoffs, which just had a must-watch 40 point blowout in which Andrew Bynum showed that he’s not more emotionally developed than an anime blog troll.
Also, hair down Elsie is fine too.
(Why do all the captured spirits look like sperm samples? It sure looks like a giant frowny-face sperm.)
Look at Auntie’s face… quality animation. Shaft does 90% of this show on the cheap, and they only try for the facial close ups and of shots of Erio by herself. (Shaft takes a lot of scenes off in this series. They rarely took any off for Madoka. Or even Maria+Holic for that matter.) More importantly, this would have been the best threesome ever involving a bike; dream of all teenage boys. Come on. Admit it. You always wanted stared at a bike thinking, “How can I use this as a prop in the porno I’m shooting?” (Oh wait, sorry, this would be the second best threesome involving two girls and a guy on a bike. This would be number one.)
(Haha. Can’t believe you clicked on that link. Enjoy your Lulu x Rolo x Suzaku threesome on a BMX bike.)
This would have been the best threesome ever in a hospital room; dream of all teenage boys. Come on. Admit it. You always wanted to lightly spank a girl wearing an eggplant outfit while screaming, “This is what you get for fucking with me in Kid Icarus, Eggplant Wizard!” while in a hospital room. Also, what kind of hospital keeps a patient for a month over a broken arm? Here in California, a broken arm is an outpatient procedure. Needless to say, Japan needs more soulless HMOs. Makoto is just a huge zero for me in this show… we can replace him with any of the millions of other vanilla typical loser harem males, and Denpa Onna wouldn’t miss a beat. In fact, can we swap him with…
… Jintan from Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai and neither show would be any different. I don’t understand why male leads have to be un-friendly (and slightly shyly perverted) losers. It’s almost like anime is designed for young men to self-insert themselves into– wait, this explains everything! No wonder Evangelion is so popular.
(Also, notice how Jintan likes wearing T-shirts with text on it? A style originally made famous by Banchou from Jubei-chan.)
Pepsi Max? Pokemon? Two of my favorite things! I choose both of you!
(The Pokemon episode is the best. You can tell A-1 Pictures have some retro gaming nostalgia, almost like a muted Shaft. I’m not sure what it says about the current crop of animators, but they all seem to have grown up on 8-bit games… and I grew up on 8-bit games. Oh how I cherish you, River City Ransom…)
Ice cream staff? Madness. Also, he’s moonlighting in both the boy’s love exorcist show (why else would it be called the Blue Exorcist?) and the crappy “financial” drama show? Where does he find the time.
Every character desperately needs cheeseburgers, onion rings, and chocolate milkshakes. I’m not sure if this is just bad character design or terrible character design. I feel like I can contract an eating disorder just by watching A Channel.
Sharks being sliced? Awesome. Can. Not. Wait.
The tea cups? You can buy most of them here.
Best. Scene. Ever.
