Canvas 2 - EyecatchAnother season, and another deluge of dating-sims-turned-anime shows hits the airwaves.  Canvas 2 ~Niji-iro no Sketch~ (the original Canvas anime was an OVA series) follows trainee art teacher Hiroki Kamikura and the girls he teaches - with a little side interest from another member of the school staff.  With originality being a lost cause in harem / dating series, it all comes down to presentation, so how does Canvas 2 manage..?

Kiddy GradeKiddy Grade reaches its finale, and the underlying theme is all about the Nouvlesse, who are about to experience a dramatic fall from power.  The universe of future is far from a democracy, and Alv has taken it upon herself to do something about it - although the devil is in the details, and her tactics leave a lot to be desired.  Who do you need to take down an ES-Member?  Lots of other ES-Members...

He is My Master (Episodes 3-5)

He is My Master - Title CardI'm noticing a trend for ridiculously long episode titles in this series.  You'll see what I mean in a moment.  These episodes of He is My Master add a certain shoujo-ai element to proceedings, which gets two big thumbs up from me, while otherwise carrying on the comedy in a style that'll be familiar to fans of Mahoromatic.  Not surprising, when the two series are made by the same people, but isn't there always a danger that a lack of originality could spoil things?  ...  Nah.  :)

Tenchi in Love - Cover ArtTenchi Muyo in Love, the first Tenchi movie, is a strange beast - not least because Tenchi doesn't fall in love.  He's far more worried about being erased from existence to be concerned about such things.  You'll also want to leave your nitpickers hat at home, as this story involves time travel, and all the gaping plotholes that go along with it...

Kiddy GradeFirst time I watched Kiddy Grade, this stage of the story left me thoroughly confused.  This time around, I've been paying attention and whaddya know, it's making a lot more sense.  I'd put a few thoughts in my review of volume 5 about what I though was going on with GOTT - and after watching this volume, I get the warm and fuzzy feeling of knowing I was right.  Go me.  :)

Jungle wa Itsumo Hale Nochi Guu Final (Episodes 11-14)

Guu Final - Eyecatchie!There's something not quite right when the final episode of a series calling itself Jungle wa Itsumo Hale Nochi Guu Final (really need to emphasise that last "final") ends on a cliffhanger, and with a "See you next time!" caption.  The meaning of "final" can't be so hard to grasp, can it?!  Anyway, on that note it's time for my final review of Hale+Guu.  Do I get bonus marks for the poetry?
