I shall give it a look in time, it looks good.

I'm trying to do Sailor Moon at the moment, and you know something?  That has a lot of episodes.  Over 9000 episodes.

I'm also watching Bakemonogatari, and while I was sure I'd seen it before, I'm not remembering any of it.  I just finished the "Mayoi Snail" three-parter.  You know that feeling when you're watching something a bit special?

Yeah, I've always wanted to get into Sailor Moon, but it's length is a bit of a problem. And it's not so much it's length, more it's monster of the weeky feel. I remember watching the refactored English version way back in the day, and even it's messed up form, it still had some appeal. I think there's a revival of the series going at the moment, and some new anime is going to be produced. I'll check that out at the very least.

And I do enjoy Bakemonogatari a lot. I prefer it to Nisemonogatari, because it crams so so much into it. It's dense and there's not a single bit of waste in it. I know I'm going to regret this, as these things usually stink, but I've bought the spin off game for the PSP. It looks good at the very least : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3HUNOa7fSgk

Milky Holmes 2-11 was amazing.  Sherlock calling Rat "Ra's Al Ghul" was the funniest thing of the year.

What? Already! Wait for meeeeeeeeeeeeeeee



Woah, hang on, it's the preview, phew. Bloody Hell, it's September already.

The PV makes it look like the comic, a lot:





Especially the colouring. Hopefully they'll keep it that way throughout.

SHAFT have been busy, the Madoka films are due soon-ish too.

Pedro I take it you're aware of the Madoka/Mami porno (doubtless knocked up[nb]as it were[/nb] by yer Goro chap) if not, you are now.

How on earth did you hold off this long before being exposed to the legendary power of lard?

Seriously, how many times did they say "RARDO" in that episode?  It must have been in excess of 9000.

The stand out vocal delivery in Milky Holmes S2 for me is right in the very first episode, when they're noisily eating their crusts and lard, and Henriette interupts demanding "What do you want to become?", rhetorically expecting "Detectives".



It's the delivery of Shellingford's "I want to be... a beekeeper..." during the panning shot that kills.



It's so beat perfect with the fraction-thoughtful pause, and said with a conviction indicating she actually wants to be a beekeeper that transcends everything else she says for about a half dozen episodes.

Oh, and slowpoke here has only just realised that Sherlock Shellingford, Yuru Yuri's Himawari Furutani, and pink Pikupiku from gdgd fairies share the same extremely talented voice actress. It wouldn't surprise me if some of the best lines in Milky Holmes were improvised, taking an already Goddess Tier cartoon yet another step higher.

I think MH may be my favourite straight-up comedy anime.  It's... got jokes, funny jokes!  It's so gleefully insane I can't help but fall in love with it.  And the OP is fucking batshit, which helps.

Also this visual gag, right at the very end:



... underlining "the horror" of the scene of destruction in front of them. It's so wilfully awful, the way they built up the rooster as a potential new series sidekick pet and all. The continuation into the next episode, where everyone somehow gets a drumstick is very Milky Holmes, too.

It's one of those comedies where we can't really add much to the jokes without essentially repeating them. Herc instinctively pushing Twenty into the shark's mouth as self-preservation, or the whole deal with the lost love wearing the mask, these are not normal jokes, or even humour that invites analysis. It's there to be enjoyed as comedy, a very, very funny series of purestrain anime abandon.

Oh, god, also the comedy of repetition when they introduce the G4 Wall-E parody, Poporon.

POPORO-CHAN IU NA~
POPORO-CHAN IU NA~
POPORO-CHAN IU NA~

The sheer weight of the jokes honestly calls to mind early Harvey Birdman.

I loved her robot voice. Kokoro-chan is obviously the crowd-pleaser side character, but in that it's the effort they put into her all-too-brief character set pieces that elevates her presence even further. It's the endlessly creative ways they have for making Genius 4 never have to do anything at all to take credit for the arrests, too, it's so clever.

Some genius distills Milky Holmes into nine minutes-ish of MAD.




I'd be geniunely interested in seeing how they write episodes. It has that "we made this up right now" feel to it that good Southpark has. The flying car in E2 especially, that sort of gag: "...and now the car... goes UP!" "DO AN E.T. JOKE!"

Another good Kokoro Connect ep, shaping up very well so far and now the 'desires' arc is out of the way the gang will doubtless be on to some other gut rending mind symptom churned out by Mr Go.
 
Jinrei wa Suitai-shimashita: Oh yeah, love this. Wonderfully surreal, and full of snappy dialogue. No description can do it justice. Easily show of the season for me.

This is bloody barmy, I've just watched the first episode and it's already so many things. You're right on the money with trying to describe it, where do you start...

'A funny, down to earth but quite insane Alice in Wonderland set in a quaint and chintzy, fairy infested, (less obviously awful) Fallout-type world'...  or something like that... so far.

The 'trap door' in the second episode was brilliant.

Edit: All of the second episode was brilliant. Whoever isn't watching this get watching.

Oh man, the third is even better, I was hoping to be asleep before 6am but it's looking less and less likely.

Just starting episode eight now and it's ace, worlds within worlds, groundhog days and what I suspected at the start episode two[nb][spoiler]It's all going bloody backwards![/spoiler][/nb] I now seriously believe to be happening which is another level of icing.

Edit: Up to date now, it's a cracking series packed with clever ideas, are we only getting 12? Oh boo hoo!

I'm so glad Akane got a good showing this season.

Only one more? Noooo. Hope it gets another series somewhere down the line.

I have decided Akarin is my waifu.  Her getting the big cheer at the end of the final episode was the best moment in the history of recorded media, just above Jamie Lee Curtis' tits in Trading Places.

I put a preorder down for one these babies:
http://www.amiami.com/top/detail/detail?scode=CGD2-37892

Looks pretty neat. It seems to be sold out now, but I've definitely got order down for it in the system, so fingers crossed I get it.
