Thoughts and Highlights

I’m so going to grow chamomile next year.

Almost half of the anime I watched was from Library War; which wasn’t a bad thing. I remembered why I liked the series so much. We got nice resolution to many, if not all, story threads. I could have used a few more episodes but no one asks me when deciding show lengths.

Yeah, that was me about a month ago on vacation

Birdy continues to impress. The scene above, incidently, was another example of people reading my mind. Also, after complaining about the animation drop a couple episodes ago, I noticed the animation was much better again in this episode.

Beware the red clouds – they can’t be good

Xam’d continues to be a solid anime that’s obviously building to something. It’s been flawlessly, or nearly so, and these two episodes continue the pattern.

There’s not much else to say – there were no surprises this week. Natsume continues as being the perfect slightly melancholic slice-of-life show for late summer. Wagaya keeps being an entertaining anime and Zero’s Familiar continues to be decent.
