Beautiful Drawn Fetishes
One of the most awaited shows of the season is finally out, so it's only natural for us to take a moment and just talk about tights. The current Spring season has a few "how is this not hentai?" shows, with Nande Koko ni Sensei ga!? as probably the better example. However, ecchi lovers were actually expecting Miru Tights, an anime that's just an excuse to see gorgeous teens wearing tights and showing off their beautiful legs and thighs.
Homi, Yua, and Ren are three teenagers starting a new year at school, with Yuiko Okuzumi as their homeroom teacher. Even if this is a short anime, 4 minutes are more than enough to explicit the premise: this is a slice of life anime of sorts, but please don't mind the plot and just enjoy the view. The art is gorgeous and the chill music is spot on, so what's not to like for those who enjoy a waifu with sexy legs!? Maybe the creators of the show were doubtful about people's reaction to an anime like Miru Tights, so the first episode gives us soaking wet tights and some cute faces as a promise of what's to come. Now it's up to us to tune in next week for a new dose of leg fetishes, but being a collection of 4-minute episodes, it may be better enjoyed binge-watching all of them once they're out. If you ask me, this is a beautifully crafted anime but I don't think I'm capable of bearing its slow pace...
All in all, what we should take from this is that a Pixiv artist is bringing awesome still drawings to anime, so maybe in the future we'll be seeing more fetishes and weird stuff from the internet in a wider, more professional medium?
Shield vs. Spear
Gotta admit, it’s amazing how bad Naofumi’s luck is at times. Episode 18 of Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari had Naofumi and party get teleported to one of the nearest heroes to have Naofumi keep his promise. Despite his earnest attempt at talking things through, Naofumi runs into Motoyasu--the Spear Hero--and immediately sparks fly. Motoyasu makes a bold claim that Naofumi killed the sword and bow hero and is unwilling to listen to Naofumi’s pleas for a truce. A battle ensues between the two heroes and once more Naofumi--despite his lack of offense--comes out on the top thanks in large part to his team and their new skill, combo attacks learned from watching our foolish spear hero. Filo ends up saving the day though when she warns Naofumi that a strong attack was inbound and after the extremely powerful beam from the sky hits a new threat emerges in the form of the church. Now Motoyasu seems to realize Naofumi wasn’t lying about the other heroes but is it too late seeing as how the grand master of the church seems to have a large attack prepared via his golden sword? All I can say is next week’s episode is sure to be even better than this one and maybe another battle of grand proportions will await!
His First Real Mission
After gathering up the gifts they were given from Urokodaki, Tanjirou and Nezuko set out for the next town over, where Tanjirou’s first mission is to search for the girls who have been disappearing there. A young man named Kazumi is wandering the town aimlessly after the girl he was with vanished, and he helps Tanjirou find the initial scent of the demon. They finally find the demon in question, with its latest victim in tow, but it is not so easy for Tanjirou to defeat this hybrid, even with his new blade…
Once again, we are struck by just how far Tanjirou has come in his training, now walking around as a Demon Slayer himself! He may not be completely comfortable in fighting all demons, but his skills are still impressive and animated so beautifully. It is poetic - Tanjirou has now improved so much that someone like Kazumi, a total stranger, recognizes him immediately as a powerful Demon Slayer just by the way he reacts to their strange predicament. We’re also so excited by the prospect of Nezuko fighting alongside her brother once again! The next episode should be just as good, with the prospect of an interesting enemy for the brother/sister duo to overcome!
Abbacchio gave his life to reveal the boss’ face, but Bruno and Giorno aren’t having any luck finding the elusive man in official records. That is, until a mysterious distorted voice calls to them through their laptop and says that he knows a way to defeat King Crimson! To make it happen, they need to meet this strange person in the Roman Coliseum as soon as they can. But Doppio and the boss send their very last assassins to stop them, and it turns into the most harrowing battle the gang has ever faced...
I love the extra backstory that David Productions added for Cioccolata, the sadistic doctor who attacks Bruno’s gang on the way to the Coliseum. The new flashback shows a young man who’s so obsessed with death that he dissects people while they’re awake during surgery and gaslights elderly patients into committing suicide. Going back to a much earlier episode, they even showed that he and Secco were the ones who tortured and murdered Sorbet and Gelato. It makes Cioccolata even more despicable, which is a difficult feat, considering that his manga incarnation was already one of the vilest villains in JoJo history.
The mad doctor’s stand, Green Day, rots its victims with a pathogenic mold when they move to a lower elevation. The way it moves and festers in the anime is perfectly disgusting, and I can’t wait to see how the rest of the battle plays out. There are plenty of iconic moments coming up in the next few episodes, and judging by what I’ve seen so far, they’re bound to be amazing!
With the overwhelming feeling that he is growing further and further apart from his daughter, Yoshihiko tries to find a way to get closer to Nanako. Thanks to a misunderstanding one morning, Yoshihiko thinks that Nanako is angry with him and beginning a rebellious phase. Hoping to find an answer he turns to his wife, his son, and even parenting articles to find a way to solve his problem. Fearing the worst, he starts to picture Nanako as a punk just like Eiji. As Yoshihiko decides that he has had enough and will never speak to Nanako again, she comes home smiling with a cake in hand to give to her dad.
This week was another fantastic episode of Senryuu Shoujo. Yoshihiko really stole the show and his moments in the episode even outshined the cute moments between Nanako and Eiji. While we've gotten to experience a little bit of Yoshihiko's peculiar personality in some of the previous episodes, his moments in this episode go all out showing just how funny his character is. All of Yoshihiko's exaggerated reactions to the little things are hilarious. It is so nice to watch an anime that has so many great characters from the main cast to the side characters.
That's all for this week! Tune in next week!
