Cannon Busters is...interesting, but there are points it really, REALLY seems to be more focused on referencing stuff than advancing its own story. It gets distracting.

Given just keeps getting better, with Akihiko being the MVP of the episode… but at this rate I wonder if we're even gonna hear Mafuyu sing before the end of the season…

  • Isekai Cheat Magician Episode 8: The two heroes right now are going to the capital and it was revealed that they were summoned by the King to suppress his brother's resistance due to different ideologies. Sadly, there are no other ways to bring them back to the old world but the summoner in question promise to do so once the conflict is settled. Oh yeah! The male hero is fighting against the general and after general was defeated, she asked the male hero to become her husband XD And yes, the Cardinal was revealed to be evil all along.
  • Maou Sama Retry Episode 9: Well, just another day of the demon lord and his subordinates taking care of both hospital and the hot springs that they build with the visit of the noble lady and the blind general, Sambo. Luckily, the latter was cured by the doctor and was given a prize even.

Forgot to mention this when the episode came out last week, but the teacher with weird sclera in Danberu-/Dumbbells is the mother of a character from Kegan Ashura.

BEM Episode 6: Today's episode is about a sympathetic inhuman who is a former Colonel who went to space and kidnaps a girl because he pitied her being experimented. Bela made friends with those two until the ending which resulted on the inhuman died and the kid getting kidnapped to be experimented by the institution again...Man fuck that Superior.

  • Isekai Cheat Magician Episode 9: Alright then, the heroes then go to war against the rebellious faction and they win at the end thanks to Rin's magic. But seems that their happiness won't last long because Cassim is salty with the defeat that he's got. And we know that Taichi's true Berserk Button is losing the ones you protected the most. Also, now I know who are the real names of the heroes because I'm stupid and only focus in Lemia lol.
  • Maou Sama Retry Episode 10: We now focus on flashback on Luna and she doesn't exactly have the brightest of them all because she was mocked and her friend was executed just being a demihuman. Still, glad to see she's able to cope. In the meantime, more fanservice given the episode focuses a lot on hot springs.

Given episode 9… Whew. I'm still not a fan of Mafuyu's singing voice, but that song was beautiful. Did he just… improvise the lyrics on the spot though? Oh did he have them but was afraid to sing at first? Aaaand then there's the kiss. That happened earlier than I expected. The only downside is that CG which made Zombieland Saga look like Land of the Lustrous by comparison. Ugh.

So, after Yûri on Ice in '17 and Yagakimi in '18, I guess this will be the standout "gay romance show" of the year, now that it's pretty clear Carole & Tuesday isn't going the yuri route (unless there's a last minute shift).

[up] Heh, yuri or not I've actually been enjoying the second half of C&T more than the first half. Maybe because it has more of an overarching plot.

  • Isekai Cheat Magician Episode 10: So, the male hero, Taichi, goes fighting against Cassim who refuses to get his pride shattered and predictably, Cassim lost and Grami saves the day when an entity attempted to attacked him. Also, seems that we now get the view about the girl who manipulated the events behind the scenes and speaking of events...Seems that the heroes will fight again against the rebel soldiers.
  • Maou Sama Retry Episode 11: Lol! I really find the interaction between the demon lord, Hakuto, and the two adventurers, Yukikaze and Mikan to be hillarious especially on Yukikaze's case. In the meantime, the Head Holy Maiden tries to investigate what happened in Luna's territory

I'll deliver the two episodes of BEM then because I forgot the recap for Episode 7:

  • BEM Episode 7: Alright, so this episode focuses on Belo again and it seems that Daryl still has a grudge towards Belo given that he still assumed Belo killed his father. And yeah, Belo got shot but still alive because he's not a human. Also, as the main episode goes...Man the Fullmetal Alchemist reference is strong in here and what the villain did, while reversible unlike in FMA, is still rather fucked up given that he tries to turn someone into pets for him to sale. Luckily Belo took down that bastard once and for all.
  • BEM Episode 8: So, the story focuses on Bela again and a new kid in town named Albert who is a son of a renowned opera singer. Unsurprisingly however, the opera singer herself turns out to be evil and conspire with another scientist. I like her costume but yeah... Won't gonna deny she's evil. Sadly she was killed by Bela at the end which causes Albert to be traumatized and transferred to other school. Anyways, even in her monster form, her other lover, Robert or whatshisname, likes her regardless.

Aaand this season of Given comes to an end. For the first "BL" anime I've watched, it was a good pick. I'll probably pick up the manga after this.

Episode 11 was a tad anticlimactic, but an appropriate point to wrap up the season. Also, Ritsuka's "Inside-Out" reaction to the confession was pure gold. [lol]

I read earlier that Given is getting a movie so maybe that'll be a better ending than the show's?

[up] Movie as in sequel movie or a condensed version of the show?

Aaaand that's also a wrap for O Maidens in Your Savage Season. It ended much better than I expected considering how this episode started. evil grin Milo-sensei kinda saved the day here…? Lots of sweet stuff in the epilogue with Jujo being happy with her newly born baby, Milo-sensei and Tomita-sensei marrying (there's not enough love for chubby women in anime!) and Niina and Momoko… still being close, if not a couple quite yet?

So yeah, to borrow Kazusa's words: "It fit." tongue I guess it's my favorite series this season along with Given and Vinland Saga? Even if it doesn't get a second season, I'd satisfied with this ending, although the manga is still ongoing apparently.

I've kinda fallen behind on Okaa-san Online, and I'm not really that motivated to catch up… I probably will though.

  • Isekai Cheat Magician Episode 11: Hmmmm...So the war has been planned by the mysterious woman who tries to guide Taichi and Rin and yeah, that guy who served for the king's brother is surely a fanatic for that woman and has secret powers to control the dead so yeah...
  • Maou-sama Retry Episode 12: So uh...I guess this is the final episode. The Demon King finally managed to seduce the higher holy maiden to his side and now they started to travel somewhere else. It ends with To Be Continued though, implying that there will be a new episode or season but it's unlikely.

If Maou sama Retry only end in Episode 12. Final thoughts? Eh...It was okay, not that much of a special anime and you could watch it if you don't have any alternative. Just an okay anime. Not bad but not good either.

BEM Episode 9: Okay, so the episode is about a long conversation between BEM and a politician who lost everything. The politician seems like a nice dude as he tried at his best to make the life of monster even better but sadly, he was killed at the end by the vengeful assassin. The reason why the assassin attacked the hero in the first place is because of the grudge he holds after getting defeated by Belo. Speaking of grudges...GDI Dylan! He ended up joining the bad guys at the end and we now see the real face of the leader of the bad guys.

Machikado Mazoku was great.

Watched the first episode after lunch today and ended up continuing though the whole series.

I really liked how it had a lot of continuity. Way more than typical for the type of show.

The world is lucky Ryo didn't inherit the majority of the demon blood.
