Mashiro-iro Symphony episode 01

She’s happy about something. Well it can’t be because she’s lost… but wait, she’s happy that her oniichan can find her anytime, anywhere. So… AKA she’s happy to get lost? :P

My Fall 2011 lineup seems to be full of surprises. To me anyways, as… I basically had prior knowledge of only 3 series for Fall (that is not a sequel), so I consider this season so much more enjoyable due to the way I anticipate new episodes with much fervor.


Back to this series though, I’m going to have to forego a detailed look into the first half, as it was practically 2 siblings who could have used a GPS  :P

Yellow is line of sight, red are dead zones

No seriously, look at the pic. Why in this blue clean world did the imouto hide out of line-of-sight? Never mind the niichan telling her to stay put, but if someone is looking for you, you don’t hide, do you? It wasn’t even raining then lol…

Not that I have a beef with that scene, as I guess this first half was to setup this season’s second blondish Sena-chan. Well I think she’s blonde… the colors in this series is unique, at least compared to the shiny stuff this season. And I like it, soothes my eyes, and the series is not an action series, so this calm relaxing slice of life fits my bill.

The ep ends on a rather cliffhangerish note, though. How could a girl be so happy in one moment, and then so… tsun in the next. Ah… at least we get a nice ponytail I love the way she looks like she has cat girls if you look at her straight on.

Well ain’t that funny. You’ve practically got the whole cast in that there shot, minus the girl with the…. weird ball animal.

Ben-to episode 01

One look at this photo, and the average viewer nowadays screams “Harem!”. So sad. First of all, the loli clearly loves her meatball, the blonde with big ones is simply trying to give a face massage to the guy with her boobies, the silver haired beauty is posing for a gravure shoot, and the 2 girls on the right are so in their own little world… all of this on a single serving of food.

Ah, Bento. I don’t think I’ve ever eaten such a thing before… if it was an already prepared food, it’d be from the Deli (not necessarily already packed for you.). That is somewhat the main reason why I just didn’t know how a series would be like for these characters to fight over food, but then again, this is Japan, and Bento’s are a regular item in stores.

Ayame Shaga, a rather cute girl with glasses :D
But they aren’t so regular when they are regularly priced. Once they get marked down to clear stock, that’s when the fight (and fun) begins, and what this series has going for it in terms of story. A rather entertaining take on a battle series I say, and for a very good reason. Looking at the original prices they go as high as USD $5.00, which I know some would simply get a much cheaper (and less healthy) meal at Mc D’s.
Asebi Inoue, perhaps the resident loli of this series. Voiced by a great tsundere voice actress (no not that one)
This is also a series where the male lead isn’t a romcom invincible punching bag, as we see he did go to the hospital and he did sustain some sort of injury to the head that although it required a bandage, he can still attend school. You know, school, as in…. gotta use your thinking power. Need to spend some more time in the hospy, dude.
Two girls who are twins, but… according to the main site, they share the same name, Kyo Sawagi.

To wrap up the ep, this male lead (You. No really, that’s his name, not yours) tries his luck again at the Bento Wars, but get’s kicked by a girl wearing pantyhose. SERIOUSLY, I so want to be kicked by Sen. Never mind the eventual pain of being kicked by the boots, but the legs…. those legs….

My high score of the flash game….after several tries. My right hand must be so broken to not be able to guide the mouse properly. Offline playable here.

Miscellany pics:

She looks like… Dark Frost Witch? :P (Sadly she doesn’t look like she’ll make an Anime appearance.)

I hope this DVD cover is a sign that the Blu-Rays will include clothing damage :D
