#379: Fansub roundup part MCXXVIIIIIII...I

Kazuki is gay.

How do I know this? Well, he's so depressed over the failure of his doujin that he utterly ignores his hot girlfriend, in a bikini, at the beach.

I mean, come on--my suspension of disbelief may have the tensile strength of the Ringworld, but even I have my limits. The guy is 17 years old. His girlfriend is hot. They're at the beach and she's in a bikini, and the water is cold....

Therefore, Kazuki is gay. QED.

(Not that there's anything wrong with that.)

Episode 8 of Comic Party does have some notable developments: someone decks Taishi, the Annoying Ninja; Kazuki actually stands up to Taishi for once; and it is revealed--big surprise!--that Mizuki isn't so hurt and offended by Kazuki's new interests in doujins as she let on at the beginning.

Still, at the end of the episode, Mizuki has told Kazuki off, and he royally deserves it. I wanted to smack the crap out of him, myself.

Amanaideyo! ended with an episode full of fan service and a promise that there will be more. I hope so. It's good stuff. (And I'm not just saying that because of the fan service, either.) I don't know what the timetable is for further releases, but I'm going to be keeping watch for it.

The last episode of that series was a "fun" episode without any monsters or ghosts to be exorcised; the story was primarily an excuse for the fan service, and I didn't mind at all. I'm a bit disappointed that most of the Haruka-chan fan service was from the episode where she wore a cat costume, but that's where she had most of her on-screen moments...unfortunately for me. (Again, don't get me wrong--the cat costume was great. I was moved to tears by it.)

I'm looking forward to seeing more of the other series that I've been nattering on about, but in the interests of not repeating myself I...uh...won't repeat myself.

He is my Master and Yume Tsukai continue to trickle in via BitTorrent. (BitTrickle?) I'm going to wait until my current viewing list is pared down a little farther to add any new titles, though. Right now there are six titles on my list:

Comic Party
You're Under Arrest 2nd season
Okusama wa Joshikousei
Stratos 4 Advance
Bincho-tan
Ah! Megamisama!


YUA and O!MG! are 26 episodes, so they'll take a while. CP is 2/3 finished; the others are nearing the halfway mark.

I am, however, going to buy the CP box set in a few weeks. Then it'll rejoin the list as I'll have 6 more episodes to watch. But that's then...and I might just order the Magic Knight Rayearth set, too, and that'll be 48 episodes of magical girl goodness from Studio CLAMP.

Ah, the life of otaku is fraught with peril.
