Inu x Boku SS Review

June 05, 2012 By: Nopy Category: Anime

In my Winter 2012 Anime Round-up post, I commented that Inu x Boku SS had gotten off to a shaky start, but could potentially turn into a good series if it was done right. Honestly, I wasn’t expecting much; for reasons why, just take a read through the synopsis from MAL:

The Shirakiin house’s daughter, Shirakiin Ririchiyo, who has a complex about being unable to live independently and unprotected, feels the need to move out and live on her own under the condition of residing in the mansion named “Ayakashi Kan.” In this mansion, only those who have cleared a very strict examination could reside in it, and for each resident, they are accompanied with one agent of the Secret Service (S.S.). Although Ririchiyo has rejected the company of the S.S., while residing in the mansion she finds out that the agent dedicated to protecting her is actually the Fox Spirit whom she previously rescued.

Sounds pretty boring, doesn’t it? From the synopsis alone, I would have assumed that the series was a slice-of-life with a fox spirit thrown in to make it “unique”. I would never have assumed the series would be a comedy that’s actually funny, nor that it would have a character that matched Victorique’s adorable haughty personality (from Gosick).

Megami Magazine Vol. 144

May 29, 2012 By: Nopy Category: Megami Magazine

Today we’ll cover the 144th volume of Megami Magazine for May 2012. The cover is of Saki – episode of side A. I’m surprised they didn’t go with a prettier anime, but I’m sure Saki fans would enjoy this. Unlike the last volume, quality seems to have improved this time, though the ecchi level has remained high. So as usual, in order to keep this site over-the-shoulder-peeking friendly, ecchi images can only be viewed by clicking on the text links.

Megami Magazine Vol. 143

April 30, 2012 By: Nopy Category: Megami Magazine

Today we have volume 143 (April 2012) of Megami Magazine, just before the end of the month. The cover this time around features Shinobu from Nisemonogatari eating one of those weird donuts that looks like it’s wrapped in something.

The ecchi level is high in this volume so some of you will probably want to pass on getting this one (or get your wallets out *wink*). As usual, any objectionable (ecchi) images are hidden in the links rather than shown directly on the page in order to protect those visiting from public places from embarrassment.

Anime Screenshots 3

April 16, 2012 By: Nopy Category: Anime

Since I abandoned the anime screenshots project a few years ago, I’ve received several comments from people wanting it back. After much deliberation (amongst me, myself, and I of course), I’ve decided to start it up again to see how it goes. This time instead of weekly posts, it will be seasonal, covering some of the more interesting screenshots of the past few months. For those new to the Anime Screenshots column, it’s basically a collection of screenshots that I took while watching anime that I felt were worthy of sharing, as you can see below.

Anime: Ano Natsu de Matteru
Episode: 3
Comments: Has anyone else noticed Japan’s odd fascination with Tommy Lee Jones?

Winter 2012 Anime Round-up

February 04, 2012 By: Nopy Category: Anime

Now that all of the new series this season have aired, it’s time to go over my thoughts on each one and decide what to watch. I have seen at least one episode of every series listed below, but most of them have gotten 2 or 3 episode views before I came to my decision. I have excluded sequels of series that I have not seen since I would not be able to follow what is going on.
