Amagami SS+ 03 – Rihoko, innocence, and mischievous university students


The major problem with the Rihoko’s arc from season one was the ending, it was never a romantic arc, and Rihoko unfortunately ended up in the terror known as the ‘fiend zone’. It was a disappointing arc for me, since, while Rihoko isn’t my favourite heroine, she is great fun to watch. And I hoped that Rihoko can finally get Junichi’s attention, thus leading to a romantic and wonderful ending. Unfortunately the episode didn’t start in the right direction, with Rihoko still firmly in said friend zone, however there are a few glimmers of hope.

Amagami SS+ 02 – The wonderfully varied faces of Tsukasa and a shed


Tsukasa sees through Noriko’s plan quite easily as it turns out, and Junichi even gets a nice little reward for falling into her trap so easily.  Tsukasa drags Junichi off by his tie in a classic piece of female dominance, dragging him to what should now be the infamous Amagami shed of sexy brilliance from the original Haruka arc. Tsukasa was unbelievably forceful in this episode, being the one to force kisses on Junichi and basically being the badass Tsukasa that we all know and love. Makes me wonder though how the marriage that we all know happened plays out, since she is clearly not above using forceful tactics to get what she wants from Junichi.

Amagami SS+ First Impressions – Tsundere’s, Student Council Elections and Photo shoots


Amagami SS is back and enjoyable as ever, starting off almost as the original series ended, although this time 1 month on from the ‘confessions’. We started off with the first of two episodes following Tsukasa’s arc, with the same wonderful back-and-forth banter from the first series. The most challenging part of this sequel was finding something to stir up Junichi’s relationship with the heroine that we already know he ends up with. In this case, the one to stir things up a bit comes in the form of Kurosawa Noriko, attempting to get one over on Tsukasa. Apparently she is an incredibly prideful person and has a grudge against Tsukasa, and sees the selections for the next student council president as the perfect opportunity to pull one over on Tsukasa and show her who is boss.

Anime Review – Maken-Ki – Your standard fanservice anime with indestructible lingerie, essential for all fighting girls and women


Maken-Ki is a show that filled the ‘fanservice’ slot for series this season, much like shows such as Seikon no Qwazer and Manyuu Hikenchou, although not quite as bad as either. It is also a show that actually got quite boring for me as it went on, and I felt that overall it was trying too hard to please, something to discuss later in my review.
