So it’s a week into this season and every show has had at least one episode now (I think). I’ll go through what I’ve watched and say what I think so far. I guess spoilers for episode 1, but are those really spoilers?
The premise is that after graduating angel or demon school said angels or demons go to earth and go to school there so that they can learn to be proper angels or proper demons. The main character is a decidedly unangelic angle that gets hooked on online games and becomes a shut in, while the rest of the cast is filled in with characters equally ill suited to their roles. This looks pretty entertaining and it’s basically Doga Kobo doing what they do best. It doesn’t seem like a show that I’m going to remember down the road, but it’s a nice moe SoL to watch. The humor has been pretty good too, so I’ve got decent expectations from it.
Little Witch Academia
I’m super excited for LWA and the first episode was great. The original OVA that was kick started was fantastic and set this all in motion, so that alone is kind of cool to see. I’d call the show a moe SoL, but it’s really a Trigger SoL with moe elements. Is it moe? I don’t even know lol, but I’ve got high expectations for it and I don’t think Trigger is going to let me down. They are good at the over the top crazy, and I think that they can do a great over the top wacky magical shenanigans show. Definitely high hopes for this show.
Kono Subarashii no Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! 2 (Konosuba s2)
That mouthful of a title aside, it’s more konosuba. The animation seems like it’s even more “quality” than last season, but that doesn’t bother me too much. The kinda cobbled together sometimes almost bad animation kinda adds to the show. But there is probably a limit to that and I hope they don’t find it lol. The Star Wars credits were a hilarious way to start off this season, and I hope that it continues to amuse me as much as it has already. I’ve got decent expectations of this show, but I’m not holding out for it to be incredible.
Demi-chan wa Katatirai
The premise of this show is that there are demi humans in the world and the teacher of this school is interested in learning more about them by interviewing them. Naturally a bunch of them end up at his school so this gets to happen. I was a little concerned about the possible weird teacher-student relationships that this sort of show can get into, but after two episodes I don’t think it will be like that at all. The cast seems pretty alright, with Hikari and the teacher being great characters. I’ll watch this show just for Hikari’s antics even if it somehow gets worse. I don’t think this will be an amazing show, but once again a nice cute SoL to fill the time.
Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon
Sort of an unexpected title for Kyoani to be adapting, but it seems to be working so far. The premise is that Tohru (the dragon) becomes Kobayashi’s maid because on a drunken adventure Kobayashi pulled a holy sword out of her and then said she could stay with her. I picked up the first volume of the manga awhile back because buy two get one free sales make me do silly things and I really enjoyed it. There is a nice amount of good jokes and then some just funny moments with Tohru being a dragon and doing dragon things. I expect this to keep me thoroughly entertained, but it probably won’t be one of Kyoani’s truly marvelous show. Gonna be hard to follow Hibike S2 lol.
So ya, that’s what I’ve watched for this season. I don’t know if I’ll really get around to anything else this season, but these at least all look like they’ll be fine watches. I have the most hope and expectations from Little Witch Academia, and I’m particularly excited that it is 2 cour.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child: Sunday 8th January, 2017.
This was my first show since September so to say I was excited was a bit of an understatement. Not even a tube strike was going to bring me down! Anyway, as you’d expect from someone with my username, this
is 90% Albus and/or Scorpius. I tried not to describe everything in minute
detail because it’s been done a hundred times already (my previous recaps are here), yet this
still managed to be 9k+ words long! Fear not, I’ve written this scene by scene so
you can skip to the bits you are interested in. Or just because I’m a self
aware rambler, you can skip riiiight to the end for the TL;DR bit I did at the
When gift boxes start falling from the sky, everyone thinks it’s a Christmas miracle. The scores of solid objects blasting through the roofs of their homes moments later remind them that just maybe, they should be worrying about the laws of gravity as well. Some choose to hide from the barrage in their homes, while others decide to scramble outside to seek shelter elsewhere.
Bad choice. The townspeople scream and dive out of the way as a pink helicopter swoops low to the ground. Eight children are nearly decapitated. They’re being comforted by their parents after this traumatizing experience as the helicopter slows its descent and hovers in place.
The door to the aircraft slams open to reveal Ohara Mari wearing a red Santa suit and obviously fake white beard. She takes in everyone’s terrified faces with interest. Then, Mari winks, forms a circle with her thumb and forefinger, and whispers, “It’s joke!”
No one says a word. Perhaps they’re in shock over the whole situation. Mari doesn’t pay them any mind and says, “Ciao~” before closing the door. The helicopter begins to pick up height, and the bystanders shake themselves out of their stupor so that they can quickly back away before they’re blown off their feet by the resulting winds. Mari’s helicopter veers sharply right and takes off, nearly colliding with a power line. The crowd watches the helicopter slowly fade from sight in stunned silence.
Thousands of homes are destroyed. The entire town is laid to waste, and children weep at the loss of their image of Santa Claus.
But it’s okay, because Dia is money. Mari will drop off the bill for the damages at the Kurosawa estate in the morning.
She chuckles to herself as her helicopter flies off into the night. With this, Dia will definitely regret telling the Ohara heiress that Santa wasn’t real when they were first years.

Season 2 of Agent Carter was absolutely amazing, witty and briliant, even though the end was a bit weak. So can we all agree that we need more seasons?
Seriously… the chemistry between Peggy and Jarvis is just amazing. I would watch them playing a game of charades for 45 minutes and it would still entertain me. Best on screen chemistry since Philinda and it is just a platonic one. Those relationships should be portrayed more often and since this doesn’t happen that often… SEASON 3!!!
Also a female hero kicking ass! That’s all I ever wanted. Peggy kicking ass and being sarcastic and amazing while doing so. Her sharp tongue has gotten sharper this season, too and it is just a delight to watch. Also the antagonists are mostly female, too! Which is great and I love that so much. SEASON 3!
Peggy gets a love interest… why not. I like it. It shows another side of her well developed character and shows that she indeed moved on. Very healthy in my opinion. And the people she ends up with are very kind and nice and the attachment doesn’t look forced in either of the cases. I love it. I know tumblr loves complaining, but seriously… I rather have a well developed hetero romance side plot than Peggy just being portrayed as unlovable, whining and pining after Steve or a love plot that is horrible and forced. (I don’t mean to say that a character without a romantic sideplot is cold, unlovable or whatever. Because that is definitely not true. But we always preach healthy relationships and doing what is good for yourself. Maybe it was time for Peggy to move on even though I think she doesn’t really need a romantic sideplot to be appealing to the audience.) The romance didn’t annoy me as much as I thought it would and I even caught myself rooting for someone. *coughs* Daniel! What I am trying to say is: WE NEEED SEASON 3.
Minor characters: There are a lot and they are all awesome. I love the fact that they are not stereotypical characters delivering funny lines and that is it. You are able to relate to them and you grow very fond of them very quickly. (Me loving Ana and wanting to marry her only took about two sentences.) Even though I was rather disappointed by the lack of Howard in this season, the show gave me a handful of new characters that I fell in love with very quickly. If you give them more screen time in another season, we’ll be able to develop an even stronger bond with all of them (and don’t forget their names again…. sorry science dude ^^°). SEASON 3!!!
An argument for another season is obviously the humour. Like Agents of SHIELD, Agent Carter has a lot of funny jokes and punchlines, but what AoS is missing is their very own James D’Arcy. I have laughed tears this season about how awkward, adorable and funny Jarvis is. Sometimes I wonder how he delivers his lines without cracking up. He is awesome! We need a third season just for this comedic genius! SEASON 3.
Musical number! WE GOT A F***ING MUSICAL NUMBER! Which was sweet and awesome and made me scream out loud and jump up and down (my happiness can be compared to when Germany won the world cup… I mean… HAYLEY and ENVER singing and dancing!!!!!!). I’d love to see more XD Maybe in season 3? ^^
In short: Agent Carter has everything your little fan heart asks for. A brilliant cast, a female lead, female antagonists, touching delicate issues very nicely, badass action, jokes, sarcasm and funny punchlines, great music and a lot of onscreen chemistry between the two main characters but also all the other characters.
What I am trying to say is: give it a go. It is really good. Watch it (on abc prefarably… we need to get the ratings up), tweet about it, talk about it, write fanfic, paint, get involved in any possible way. Only if we work together, we will get a third season. WE NEED SEASON 3!
