Thoughts and Highlights
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.
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.
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.
