I’ve been watching a lot of Monster lately. Going from that to Highschool of the Dead is like listening to Beethoven then switching over to Spinal Tap. These amps go to 11.
With no internet access here on campus until Monday, and no K-On downloaded past what I’ve watched, I’m returning to Heroman, which I am woefully behind on. With episode 14, we open up to Professor Denton giving Joey a hard time about how if he hopes to survive he has to be alert all the time, and get more powerful then he already is. Give the kid a break, he’s what, fourteen, and already saved the world from an alien invasion. Way to be a jerk.
Summary 5: Rikuo and his friends all go to a mountain which turns out to be the home of the demon who lurks around the house with obviously evil motives.
Summary 6: The group go to the onsen on the mountain, then wander out at night like gullible idiots. They get attacked, as expected, but Day Rikuo decides to do something for once.
I have to admit, Occult Academy is losing me. We finally get a somewhat Ami-centric arc, but the direction felt haphazard, Maya out-of-character, and we keep losing the main plotline for monster of the week type of stories.
I had a blog post set up for episode 18 all ready to go, and made the mistake of going to bed without saving, hoping to post it in the morning. Of course Windows chose that night to do an update, restart, and wipe my entry. This is disappointing to me, especially as the plan was to have caught up to 21 before I went to college. Now it’s the night before I leave, and I’m rewriting 18.
HOTD is due some credit. I thought Strike Witches took fanservice to unique new levels, but HOTD has upped that bar. It’s taken fanservice to new levels that even straight raunch hentai doesn’t. If you’re still watching the show at this point, you’ve got to love it.
I probably could’ve bundled episodes 5-7 together since they all basically tell the story of the 24-48 hour period where Tadayasu and gang got ahold of those aphrodisiacs.
