Anime of the Week (7/29 – 8/4)

Anime of the Week – Kokoro Connect
This series is breaking barriers of taboo in such interesting and hiliarious ways that I’m often left wondering exactly how I should feel about what just happened. I simply love its spark of creativity that gets me to think and laugh at the same time.                                
July 29 Arcana Famiglia Ep. 4 Ah, that old storytelling catch-all amnesia. As childish as Liberta can be, conviction is what he needs the most.
SAO Ep. 4 All this episode established is just how powerful Kirito really is and we now know that criminals and a spirit of justice exist.
Kokoro Connect Ep. 4 Despite the “adultish” themes in this anime, I think avoiding those issues would be ignoring the elephant in the room.
Hagure Yuusha Ep. 4 Does it reflect badly on a story’s writing when it takes a big chunk of time out for rather unexciting small talk?
Dog Days 2 Ep. 4 Really, it’s OK to not freak out every time someone notices that a boy and a girl happen to have a friendly relationship.
July 30 Rinne 2 Ep. 4 Talk about having some heavy bargaining chips. When you’re holding the other side’s sister hostage, what are they going to do?
Total Eclipse Ep. 5 As good as this series is at providing us with a nice military drama, hero Yuuya and heroine Yui aren’t very likeable.
Hyouka Ep. 15 Ah, the spirit of mystery is returning and it would seem Oreki may have his role surpassed by the sleuthing of Satoshi.
July 31 Tari Tari Ep. 5 At this point I don’t know if Wakana is letting go and moving on or if she’s simply running away from painful memories.
August 2 H ga Dekinai Ep. 4 For all his pervertedness, Ryosuke is actually faithful and not so shallow as to be swayed by a girl with bigger boobs.
August 3 Natsuyuki Rendezvous Ep. 5 At first I was sympathetic to Atsushi, but seeing him screwing with Hazuki I’ve lost my respect for him.
August 4 Accel World Ep. 17 To have the episode end on a cliffhanger… I don’t know what to think—especially since next week’s focus is Snow Black.
Hagure Yuusha Ep. 5 I’m impressed by how this anime always manages to be smart and slightly profound while indulging in its ecchiness.
