7 Days of Anime (7DA) is a column by the mangatron where he grades the episode of the week for the series’ that he follows. Grades are done with 3 things in mind: 1) How well the episode fits into the current pacing [of the main story], 2) How well it maintained a viewers interest, and 3) overall enjoyment level (Animation quality, sounds of music and voice, and use of story elements).
A = Time well spent
B = If it’s your cup of tea, drink it
C= Only the fans will enjoy it regardless
+ = And then some
– = Something is missing…
Asobi ni Ikuyo! Episode 01
The first episode in the series, we saw a heck of a lot of revelations than normally shown throughout anime history. Did we really need to see this much info? For 12 episodes, sure yeah.
Pros: It’s them juggulars.
Cons: Is this kind of pacing a sign of things to come? And why him? Lucky bastard or coincidence?
Strike Witches Episode 02
Continuing where episode 01 left off, the 501st Fighter Wing reunite against a powerful new foe. <- how'd that sound? Good movie tagline? 😀
Pros: That(them) ass(es). And a prediction I made came true… and then some.
Cons: I think I’ve seen this fight before…
Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakama-tachi Episode 03
Continuing the (mis)adventures of Ookami-chan and her squad of misfitting friends. Except, this episode shone without her. How’s that for breaking news…
Pros: Lots of skin this episode. Or rather a great story of 2 of the supporting cast.
Cons: No baring of additional skin from Ookami-chan than her usual outfit.
Amagami SS episode 03
The 3rd episode in the arc of Haruka, the episode title is “Jealousy” but that only happened in the first half. (at least the stereotypical jealousy).
Pros: Haruka lying on the sofa. Them legs and that large ass sweater = more than eyecandy.
Cons: Hmm this is a hard one… perhaps the kiss behind the knee? Because I thought he’d move north.
Shukufuku no Campanella Episode 03
More adventuring from Carina and her good friends. Whoever said this series isn’t ecchi needs to see this.
Pros: Progress is jiggly er I mean smooth.
Cons: uhm…. naked loli? >___>
Highschool of the Tot Episode 02
More manga adventures of school related personel surviving. And zombies surviving too. Everyone needs to eat some time, right?
Pros: Er, ecchi zombies? How does someone get off on ecchi when a zombie is in their face?
Cons: Teacher Nurse… lady is a lot “slower” than the manga showed me….
Seitokai Yakuindomo Episode 03
Shino and Aria’s school trip follow tradition… and then some. Meanwhile, Suzu remains as small as ever. She can run head first into Tsuda’s crotch, man…
Pros: Suzu speaking polite english then finishing it with a fresh mouth. And that’s all I have to say about that.
Cons: Sex jokes at their utmost minimum (compared to the previous 2 eps). Probably a good thing?
Sekirei ~Pure Engagement~ Episode 02
In three words: Benitsubasa’s phone calls. Enough said, go and watch it now.
Pros: Did I fail to mention Benitsubasa’s phone calls?
Cons: Er…. not enough Yukari? 😉
