Angel’s Drop anime green-lit

Angel’s Drop anime green-lit

A billboard on the Comic ZIN shop in Tokyo’s Akihabara district and G-mode’s Comic Meteor website are announcing that an anime adaptation of Chizuna Nakajima’s bishōjo gag comedy manga Angel’s Drop (Tenshi no Drop) has been green-lit.

The story centers on Botan and Shinobu, two childhood friends who enroll in St. Azumaria Girls’ Academy. Their encounter with an “angel” named Un-chan lead to strange things happening in their lives. The manga openly describes itself as covering yuri, hentai, omorashi, and other elements of fetishism not usually seen in shōnen or shōjo manga.

Nakajima launched the manga on the Flex Comix Blood site last year, but after Flex Comix Blood shut down this year, the manga moved to Comic Meteor website. The third volume will be published next January.

Jormungand: Perfect Order episode 08

Here it is! The end is finally nearing! Koko is finally started the final phase of her plan, which means the end is near. Also, the reason behind all the rockets she launched also became very clear during this episode. I want to call it epic, but that somehow doesn’t describe it?

Koko focussed on strengthening the bonds between her and her allies. I guess she will need their help in the near future to execute her plan. She is starting to look more and more evil, and it won’t be much longer before that mask of innocence finally crumbles. After all, all of her crew members are monsters, so logic dictates that she’s the worst one.

We also got to see Karen again. She was the one that shot Sofia before she got shot by Jonah. She has dropped the axe and continued her life as doctor Minami’s new assistant. I have to be honest here, I wasn’t happy when they spared her life. She shot Sofia with the intent to kill both her and Jonah, so it would’ve been better if they had killed her (for their own safety). But, after looking back, I’m glad they didn’t. She’s pretty cool.

Anyway, the story is nearing its end as Koko’s objective is becoming clearer and clearer. They, or at least her brother, are seeking to privatise war by providing all parties with all sorts of service. They have been shooting satellite after satellite into space in order to obtain the weapon of untold possibilities, the ability to control all conflict. It’s brilliant. Everyone can now knock on HCLI’s door to buy weapons, communication lines and a whole lot more. HCLI controls it all, so they basically control all conflict. It’s absolutely brilliant.

Naruto Shippuuden episode 291

I knew it, more fillers… They probably thought that they could keep the viewer’s somewhat satisfied with a little bit of fan service (I’m referring to the bathing scene). Even I have to admit that I wouldn’t mind seeing that plump ninja on a regular basis. She looks awesome.

Sadly, this episode was worse than last week’s. The only enjoyment I got out of this was that bath scene, that’s it. At least last week’s episode had action in it. It’s more than safe to say that these fillers contribute absolutely nothing. They’re just a waste of time.

It seems that it’s not over yet either. There’s more to come by the looks of it, seeing as this week’s “story” isn’t actually over yet. It is hopeless, really. We just had loads of fillers a few months ago, and the manga is miles ahead. I still don’t know why they torment us with this crap, sorry.

Sword Art Online episode 21

Oh, oh… My hope levels are rising again! I was slowly starting to lose faith in Sword Art Online, as it felt as though we were back where we started. But, although it still seems that way, I’m starting to get hopeful once more. It was the kind of episode that makes you want to see more and more straight away.

We all know Asuna, a feisty girl that doesn’t have any problems with speaking her mind. She almost managed to escape and log out of that dreadful game. She would’ve succeeded if it weren’t for those two staff members. That’s when I started to get a little hopeful. Sure, I was down again when she failed to escape, but I’m sure that she’ll get another opportunity like that if she keeps trying.

Kazuto even ended up taking his little sister to the hospital to see Asuna. That time could’ve been better spent on levelling and finding a way to reach the top of that tree, but I suppose this is fine too. Besides, Kazuto didn’t even know for sure that Asuna was at the very top of that tree. He was just assuming based on the picture he saw.

However, his assumptions were soon turned into reality when his virtual fairy daughter detected Asuna’s presence. Kazuto, probably more motivated than ever before, will now have to find a way to reach the top. I’m looking forward to that, but I’m also looking forward to the moment where brother and sister finally realize that they have been playing that game with each other all this time. That should prove to be quite the amusing scene. Kazuto will probably be fine, but his little sister, a girl that has fallen in love with the character Kirito, her brother’s character, will probably be so embarrassed that she won’t be able to look him in the eyes.

Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo episode 08

What a remarkable improvement over last week’s episode. I knew Sorata’s little sister wouldn’t do the story any good. That is why I was pretty happy when she wasn’t in it. I hope it stays that way for the remaining few episodes. She is only a burden.

Frankly, not much has changed since the first episode. Sorata is still unclear about what he really wants, Mashiro is still doing all sorts of inappropriate things because she doesn’t know any better, and the rest, well… Not much has changed since then. I’m not very happy about that, because it has been eight weeks and we are still waiting for something to happen.

The only thing that has progressed is Mashiro’s work as a mangaka. She finally got herself serialized after all this time. This may seem cruel towards Sorata, who failed once again when he went out to present his game design and whatnot, but she really did work hard and slept very few hours to get to this point. Well done, Mashiro.

There’s not much else that I want to say… I just want to see some actual progress. This love triangle is getting a bit dull and predictable. Nanami will probably never confess her feelings to Sorata, Mashiro doesn’t even know she’s in love and Sorata is probably too big a coward to do anything about his own feelings. He’ll probably stick to that “I’m a real gentlemen, so no touchy-touchy before marriage”-act. Seriously, guys like that end up marrying a girl that they couldn’t possibly please in the long run. Just get it over with!
