Last Week’s Tweets 11/20 – 11/26

Anime of the Week – Squid Girl 2
Squid Girl can be a pretty hit and miss anime. But when it’s good, it’s pure awesome sauce.
November 20 Higurashi Kira Ep. 2 If you told me to imagine a situation where Higurashi was given a “magic girl makeover,” this is would be it.
Fate/Zero. Ep. 8 This anime’s pace is unusual. It watches elegantly, balanced with emotion and action, but I’m seeing a lack of progress.
November 21 Mirai Nikki Ep. 7 I wonder if the R-rated scenes in this anime will be uncensored when it gets released on DVD.
Shana III Ep. 7 The events of this anime are transpiring in an orderly, logical but somewhat plodding pace that could have been done better.
Working 2 Ep. 8 Soma is good at padding time onto episodes with his pointless delays teasing people. There’s a limit to that kind of gag.
November 23 Persona 4 Ep. 7 The impact of a lot of this anime’s surprises is lessened when you already know the outcome from playing the video game.
Mashiro-iro Ep. 2 Only two episodes in and the familiar awkwardness of the lead male of an h-game is already well established.
Squid Girl 2 Ep. 4 As an English teacher in Japan, the first part of this episode was relevant to my interests. The English was good, too.
Last Exile 2 Ep. 2 I feel like there was a massive disconnect between episode 1 and 2. As if there was a big chunk of story simply omitted.
November 24 Squid Girl 2 Ep. 5 What a shift… a great episode followed by a forgettable one. Hopefully episode 6 can get things back on pace.
