Sora no Manimani, episode 12 – Season Finale!

Argh, I’m very sad to see this show end. Even though the romances didn’t pan out, I hope they’ll have a second season that’ll continue the love triangle/square and settle the final Saku and Mii-chan pairing.

Sora no Manimani, episode 11 – Hime abuse

When I first heard Hime speak, I expected to hear a soft, meek voice coming from her. Basically Mamiko Noto. But I was surprised to hear a higher-pitched, more peppy voice for her. Of course, my preconceptions of Hime was that she was a total passive wallflower. And while, she’s sort of meek in the confession sense, she’s actually turned out to be a pretty fiery character. So that’s my long winded way of saying, I really like the way Haruka Tomatsu’s voicing her. Of course, there’s very little about Haruka Tomatsu that I don’t like.

Sora no Manimani, episode 9 – It’s not a cult, it’s an Astronomy Network

I think perhaps I’ve become a bit too cynical. For the first half of the episode, as I was introduced to Oumi and her dark, mysterious eyes, her strangely conservative dress, the little too perfect tall guy with the great looks, the freaks in the club with the hots for mythological characters, the holy crap, how could a high school afford this? astronomy equipment, the division into groups, I wondered when the other shoe would drop: the one where Mii-chan and co. realized this was no Astronomy Network, this was a sinister cult with malevolent designs on taking over the world! For better or for worse, this shoe never dropped, and we got a real solid episode with finally a little backstory for the anemic club president, Roma. Regardless, I think I may have to lay off the sugar for a while.
