Mikan Watch #98: Monster Musume

From episode 9 of Monster Musume (or, Everyday Life with Monster Girls, if you will), is something that I probably should have posted about over a month ago on the evening when I actually watched the episode, when it was still a relevant thing to point out.

Mikan Watch #97: Witchcraft Works

From volume 5 of the Witchcraft Works manga. It didn’t make the anime version, alas.

I have to say, Ren-chon has really, really sharp taste in sweaters.

Mikan Watch #96: Himouto! Umaru-chan

Posted by DiGiKerot in Mikan Watch at August 28, 2015 on 8:08 pm

From episode 8 of Himouto! Umaru-chan, residing in Ebina’s apartment, presumably full and probably sent by her country bumpkin parents.

Umaru-chan is… OK, I guess. I honestly find it a little too lethargic for the kind show it seems to be trying to be, and whilst it’d probably be fine if it was served up a third of the length, I find twenty-four minutes of it in one go to generally be a little too trying to get through. I suppose Teekyu ruins a lot of non-Teekyu things, but whilst it was never going to be quite that kind of show, it just throws into contrast that Umaru really doesn’t have the kind of joke-density it probably needs, or at least I’d want it, to have.

Also, not enough Sylphynford. It definitely needs more Sylphynford.

But, hey, there’s little as subjective as comedy, and your mileage may vary. I gather some crazy people even enjoy Kill Me Baby, so what do I know?

Mikan Watch #95: Nisekoi:

Posted by DiGiKerot in Mikan Watch at June 14, 2015 on 4:26 pm

From episode 8 of Nisekoi: (That is, the second series, or Nisekolon, if you will. Or maybe won’t), the magical girl episode. I would have said token magical girl episode, but, honestly, idols are feeling way more token than the magical girl fare these days.

Anyway, token post, I guess – I’m not dead, I’ve just been somewhat busy recently. I really should probably get around to writing about the rest of Cinderella Girls before the show starts back up in a few weeks, even if only in brief. Although “really should” doesn’t necessarily mean I’m going to find time to do so – there’s an awful lot of E3 to be watching this week…
