Poll: Ore Monogatari!!, Sekaiichi Hatsukoi, Strawberry Panic

We’re halfway through both Gakkougurashi and Another. So here’s the next poll, a little earlier than usual because I want to leave it up for longer. And the genre this time is…

Romance.

Yeah.

This is me, biting the bullet. I’ve been putting off the Romance category for so damn long but I figured I should stop being a chicken and get on with it. So here we have three 2-cour shows, one each with m/f, f/f and m/m pairs. Which one I watch is up to you. This time around, I’ll only blog one show because it’s way beyond me to simultaneously watch and review two romance anime.

Another Episode 07 – Sphere Joint

Overview:

The last episode ended with 9-3’s homeroom teacher pulling a knife on them and acting in disturbing ways. I thought he was going to attack them but no, he just rips up own throat. It’s gruesome. Arterial spray and traumatized kids everywhere.

Another Episode 06 – Face to Face

Overview:

Last episode ended with Mei and Kouichi in the former’s home, talking about 9-3’s messy business, and this one continues that conversation. We see that the class actually asked Mei about her being cast in the role of the outcast. It’s not much of a choice since it’s ‘agree or risk death’ so she complies. There’s also a glimpse of Izumi, Blondie and Kazami discussing how Kouichi transferring has resulted in an extra student. Turns out Izumi did check if he were the horrorterror thing (yes, I insist on calling the extra dead student that) but concluded he wasn’t because a) he hasn’t lived in Yomiyama before and b) his hands weren’t cold.

Attack on Titan Episode 37 – Scream

The Entertainer Blogger Award

It’s been a while since I did one of these posts. My apologies to those who tagged me. I haven’t been able to find the time for an award in a while.

You should check out their blog – it’s got a lot of interesting material from anime reviews to fun tags.
