Ashita no Anime

Anime of Tomorrow

Anime of the Week (8/5 – 8/11)

Anime of the Week – Rinne no Lagrange 2
Some fabulous deception courtesy of Lan and Muginami presented an amazing twist that I never saw coming, but in hindsight was perfectly in line with their characters. Lagrange may not have many moments, but it really makes the few it has count.                                
August 5 SAO Ep. 5 I’m finding this anime harder and harder to follow with all the time skips and jumping and warping between levels of the game.
Kokoro Connect Ep. 5 Heartseed is a real jerk—if that wasn’t obvious already. But I wonder if what made this series unique is really over.
Dog Days 2 Ep. 5 Although this episode was pretty ordinary, I always like how this series ensures that every moment is over-the-top fun.
Arcana Famiglia Ep. 5 I like how the side characters are surprisingly well developed. One even seems to have some villainous motives.
August 6 Rinne 2 Ep. 5 Maybe it’s a shortcoming, but I like how this series doesn’t painstakingly explain everything and the story flows organically.
Total Eclipse Ep. 6 A swimsuit episode and stranding the protagonists on a deserted island are cliche, but this time I think it was ok.
Hyouka Ep. 16 Chitanda’s curious eyes are a force to be reckoned with, but Oreki seems to be finding ways to work around her charm.
August 7 Tari Tari Ep. 6 The only thought I could focus on while watching this episode is how much better this music anime is than Kids on the Slope.
August 10 Natsuyuki Rendezvous Ep. 6 Shimao intends to be a wedge between Rokka and Hazuki, but his methods keep backfiring as she owns her feelings.
Tsuritama Ep. 2 So far this series is nothing more than a mess of unexplained quirky characters and poorly contextualized fishing trivia.
August 11 Accel World Ep. 18 There’s nothing bad about a change in pace, but I have a feeling this Okinawa trip is nothing more than a distraction.
Hagure Yuusha Ep. 6 This series has some decent moments when Akatsuki plays hero, but most of the time it’s painfully ordinary shounen.
