Haifuri (High School Fleet) Episode 4: Maidens in a Pinch

Title-HSF04-EN

Interesting. Very interesting. It was a shopping episode that furthered the plot that few other anime’s shopping episodes manage to do. I’m going to quote a friend, but:

“[I]t might still be a conspiracy, but not the kind we thought it would be.”

TER – Haifuri (High School Fleet) Episode 3: In a Pinch in Pajamas

Title-HSF03-EN

BOYS DO EXIST. The one thing that irked me with Girls und Panzer was the complete lack of guys, or any mention of males. Tankery being a ‘female’ art. At least the guys get featured here. And not exactly in a surprising way.

TER – Haifuri (High School Fleet) Episode 2: In a Pinch During Pursuit!

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why already by episode 2, folks are preferring this over the Kantai Collection anime. There is definitely something very fishy going on here, and something seems to be calling for some chaos, dragging the girls aboard the Harekaze into something they never would’ve signed up for.

Sakura Matsuri 2016

Today, I went to the Washington D.C. Navy Yard to attend the 2016 Sakura Matsuri. I had rushed there right after work, and within an hour-and-a-half (and roughly 13-14USD in fare the whole day), I was being jostled around trying to make my way up a pleasant Washington D.C. afternoon with the drop of the mass of humanity that decided to come with.

TER – HaiFuri (High School Fleet) Episode 1: In a Pinch on Our Maiden Voyage!

So, to start off this season’s Three Episode Rule, is Hai-Furi, or High School Fleet. Already the general fandom seems to have called this GuP on Ships, Haifuri might end up being my guilty pleasure of the season. If anything, it might be the only one I would watch, and it seems I’m not alone with it, as others have picked up the series.

Status Change: Free Will and Time Sinks

After a week or so of trying to get my thoughts together, I think I’ve failed in that endeavor. I’ve been embroiled in this little title called Tom Clancy’s The Division, and to be honest, I didn’t think I would like it. But still, the release to DVD and BD of a movie did get me off my desktop and into my laptop for this post. I just hope by the time I’m done writing this, it doesn’t take me a week to write it.

Gate – Episode 24: Thus, They Fought There

gate004e24

And thus the end of what has become a very enjoyable, if a little controversial, show. It wasn’t the ending I expected, but I’m quite fine with this. I know some folks would be disappointed, but frankly, it was a fun ride and it was always enjoyable from beginning to end…if not necessarily in a climax.

Gate – Episode 22: The Empress in Slave’s Clothing

A very fitting title for the episode. Everyone who has been watching already knows who the real leader of the current Empire is. Zorzal and his cronies may think they are, but the one that holds all the power is the warrior bunny.

Gate – Episode 21: Deadline

All seems going to plan for Zorzal and Tyuule, while Japan is increasingly being held up with red tape, public opinion polls, and other nations. Itami and company though, decide to strike back at their infamous assassin.
