This week’s episodes in haiku! (05/20/12)
There may or may not be a sudden lack of general internet activity, and it’s probably due to Diablo III, which released last week. I haven’t been immune to its clutches, and I’m finding myself back in the groove of endless MF runs through Inferno.
But convenient server downs means a bit of time for anime — right?
On that note, I still don’t know what to make of Mysterious Girlfriend. It keeps shifting from blatantly (bad) fanservice situations to the compelling hook of using saliva to unite Tsubaki and Urabe in a way that seems really nice, even with the squick. Dusk Maiden takes the cake for best episode of the week, though — it’s at the point where things could actually come together as far as a real plot goes. Nyarko is also looking very solid — this week’s episode had much less bizarre humor and more of the charming romance that you’d come to expect from a slice of life comedy.
