First impression reviews in this post: Saki Zenkoku-hen – The Nationals, Toaru Hikuushi e no Koiuta, Noragami, Mikakunin de Shinkoukei, Super Sonico The Animation.


Saki Zenkoku-hen – The Nationals


After years of waiting, Saki is back ! And this time we get to see both of our favorite teams: Kiyosumi and Achiga. The funny thing is… I’ve watched all episodes of previous season (including side-A) and I still have no idea about Mahjong rules, yet I still enjoy watching this show and got excited every-time I see new episode.

Watching: absolutely yes !
Blogging: maybe.

Toaru Hikuushi e no Koiuta


Our main hero is a pilot trainee. We have world setting with flying ships and flying islands. Most probably the story will continue with school setting, with issues about class-gap between commoners and nobles.

Watching: will give this few more episodes.
Blogging: mostly not.



This is interesting. Our main hero is a low-level God (I think this follows Shinto setting with multiple Gods) named Yato. He attempts to build his own shrine, charging people 5 yen (approx 5 cent of USD) to help people. One day Yato’s divine weapon quits, so he becomes a God without shrine and without weapon. A human girl named Hiyori saved Yato from traffic accident and now she’s stuck between human realm and afterlife realm.

Watching: yes, love this one.
Blogging: considering.

Mikakunin de Shinkoukei


On her 16th birthday, Kobeni (our heroine) finds out she has a fiancee. And starting on that day, her fiancee is going to live with her. It was decided by her grandfather, and her mom has no say in it. Hakuya (the fiancee) is a quiet guy with no presence. To spice up the story, Kobeni has an older sister with sister complex and Hakuya has a younger sister with brother complex.

Watching: yes, it’s funny.
Blogging: maybe.

Super Sonico The Animation


Ok, this one is a little bit weird. Why does she keep wearing that headphones everywhere she goes? Even at school? Heck I even see a wall photo of her as little kid already wearing that headphones. I mean, I know she’s a mascot of a game software company and that’s how her original artwork first appeared. But this is an animation, for goodness’ sake, it’s supposed to have a story. And this entire episode 1 is just like a bunch of random scenes put together.

Watching: probably no, but I’ll give it one more episode.
Blogging: no.
