Quick recaps edition because I’m feeling lazy.
Princess Lover, Ep. 3
Nyoro~n wrote an amusing entry on this show so I kept watching just out of morbid curiosity… but I think I’ve about reached my limit (just in time for the megatsundere twintails to have a change of heart too, woo!). Serious severe lack of Alfred the butler. He was the only redeeming thing about Princess Lover. Dropped.
Canaan, Ep. 3
More gratuitous fanservice, check.
More Maria childishness, check.
Me yawning at yet another Canaan episode, check. Every episode has been 20 minutes of vague, behind-the-scenes machinations and 3 minutes of unexciting action. Here’s my beef with Canaan: I was somewhat favorable of the first episode because I thought it started off on the right foot. It had nice production values, was moderately intriguing and the action was okay. The next couple of episodes, however, don’t ramp things up enough. Never mind hitting top gear–Canaan is still in the same gear it started with in the first episode. I’m waiting to be blown away and I just don’t feel the excitement. Oh yeah, other blogs goes on and on about how funny this series is. Seriously? Where? Dropped.
Are Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 (despite everything I’ve said about it) and Bakemonogatari really the only new shows worth following this summer?
