It's time for a new journal, but I can't think of what to write, so it's time to write about anime I've watched recently, at least ones I can think about comments for.
Idolmaster Cinderella Girls: Ranko was appropriately cute this episode. Despite voicing Takanashi Rikka (Ranko came
first), she has done a good job at keeping the two chuunis distinct.
Majin Bone- Saho, better look out, Liebert has already held hands with your man! Also, Liebert needs to hurry up with Dark Panther's Iron Bone transformation.
Shirobako- we're all cheering for you, Zuka. As for the anime itself, sometimes it's stressful to watch, as it gets to feeling like a busy office and that I'm in the middle of it.
I think that Gundam Build Fighters Try has fallen into the trap that a lot of "elimination tournament" series run into. Interesting characters lose and get eliminated, so it's hard to keep them relevant. Anything cool they could have brought to the series in later episodes goes away, and you also get a lot of jobber teams just to show how strong an enemy is. The original Build Fighters got around this nicely by having a points system for the earlier parts of the tournament. That way, players could win or lose but still retain important positions.
I hadn't watched Prefectural Earth Defense Force, and was impressed by the animation. I get the feeling that several scenes were just made for various animators to show off.
Dragon Half- rewatching after all these years, still pretty good. Shame about the production problems.
