Anime of Tomorrow

Anime of the Week (6/16 – 6/22)

Anime of the Week – The “Hentai” Prince and the Stony Cat
Tsukiko wonders about her past.

The part of us that makes each of us who we are is our memories. But when those memories are lost, have we lost ourselves? What about when we remember events incorrectly? In doing so, have we fundamentally changed who we are?                              

June 16 HenNeko Ep. 10 Anyone who wrote off this anime as shallow needs to give it a second look. It’s got some great themes about love and family.
Attack on Titan Ep.11 Dot Pixis rallies the troops brilliantly. Instead of thinking about themselves, he motivated them to think of others.
June 17 Gargantia Ep. 11 The problem with a meritocracy is the same as communism. They work in theory—not in practice—because people value freedom.
Date A Live Ep. 12 The key to a good harem series is making the presence of all the girls be either believable or an original plot quirk.
Leviathan Ep. 10 A big helping of Final Fantasy, a little Dungeons and Dragons and some Pokemon flavor to complete all the RPG references.
June 18 Yuyushiki Ep. 8 While this series is satisfying my moe passion better than Minami-ke 4, it doesn’t have anything memorable that stands out.
June 20 Yuyushiki Ep. 9 Why is it when girls touch each other’s parts it’s considered playful, but when guys touch each other’s parts it’s gay?
Yuyushiki Ep. 10 Like Yui, I’ve not found that level of tact which lies somewhere between brutal honesty and respecting others’ feelings.
June 22 Maou-sama Ep. 12 Maybe it has something to do with the fact that he’ll just go back to his fast food job, but the battles feel empty.
Samurai Bride Ep. 12 The degree to which the ending of this anime rips off Madoka is stunning. It’s too bad the action is pathetically lazy.
Railgun S Ep. 11 I don’t know what it is, but I’ve always enjoyed Touma’s interactions with Misaka much more than when he’s with Index.
Crime Edge Ep. 11 I’d never considered the acting in this anime to be particularly good, but as the series has progressed it’s gotten worse.
Crime Edge Ep. 12 I had such high hopes for this anime’s theme of “opposing symmetry,” but now you couldn’t even call it poetic justice.
