Strike Witches 2

Whatever this episode was about, I’ve totally forgotten about it. Drunk Mio stole the whole episode singlehandedly.

Seriously, I lol’ed so hard when she crushed it with her ass death grip. And got her 200th Neuroi kill from it as well. And an award for it too. Hahaha.

Strike Witches 2-ki 06

Strike Witches 2-ki

One word perfectly describes this episode: D’aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.

Well, it was pretty certain the whole episode was being setup for a Crowning Moment of Courage, Heartwarming and Love, to the point of being rather blatant about it, but hell, I don’t dislike things like this once in a while. Especially with characters that I like.

It’s almost criminal how little screentime Eila and Sanya have gotten so far, this episode partially makes up for it I guess.

Strike Witches S2 02

Holy fuck Mio dished out not one, but TWO lessons of badass in one episode. Who needs shields when you can cut through laser beams like butter!

Strike Witches S2

Very inclined to agree with her here.

Anyways, so far so good. This episode was crazy win with the action. Only Japan can make a bunch of girls flying around with no pants look badass. Still sticking to my A’s prediction here!

But lol, next week… broom-riding lessons. I am going to laugh if they start playing Quidditch or something!

Strike Witches 2 begins

Strike Witches 2

Oh shi–

Mmmm, more pantsuless witches.

First season was a surprise hit for me despite the odds and judging from the premiere, SW2 looks set to equal or better it’s predecessor in terms of pure action, although whether it will keep to the light-heartedness of the first season remains to be seen. At least, along with the change of production studios to AIC, there is a noticeable upgrade of production quality as well.

Generally though, the first episode was pretty light in content, basically serving to reintroduce everyone to the situation of the 501st Strike Witches, the new impending Neuroi threat and Yoshika generally healing injured animals that seem to lie around pretty commonly wherever she lives (like a bear, lol). Pretty light on content but it does show that AIC’s team ‘gets’ what Strike Witches is about and knows what to enhance without detracting from it’s original too much.

Ah, maybe I am too optimistic about the show, but so far, I’m hoping it’ll be an enjoyable ride till the end. Look at Nanoha, A’s was easily the best of the trilogy!

P.S. Semi-finals for ABT are ongoing now, please vote for me who has miraculously reached this far!

2008 in Review: Picks of 2008

2008 in Review

Another year passes. Man, it’s hard to believe I’m already in to my 9th year of being an otaku as well as my 4th year of blogging. Time sure flies. I’m now well over 1500 posts with nearly 16k comments, and it’s thanks to everyone’s support that I’ve gotten so far.

This year was marked by an increased number of good shows, but surprisingly, it wasn’t as “happening” as last year. To put it in another way, while the average increased, the top end of the bell curve wasn’t as high as last year. Nevertheless, this year still had its moments.

My choices here aren’t particularly graded using a strict measure, it’s more of an overall rating of shows of this year that I greatly enjoyed in one way or another, so please view it as that rather than a solid indicator of quality.

Of course, being a mere mortal with a real life outside of the Internet, I will inevitably miss a few gems here and there, so feel free to voice up any other shows that you, my dear reader, believe I should have watched and not missed for this year.

With that said, here’s the list.
