I’m finding it hard to believe that this is the one anime that makes me visit TokyoToshokan repeatedly until I see it uploaded, which I then fervently download it like an east Indian rat plague that eats farmers’ crops every 48 years and causes a general crop famine because they exponentially reproduce until the bamboo forest doesn’t provide enough food.

… Was that analogy too over the top? Plus it’s every 48 years, so that’s actually kind of infrequent. Let’s just say I was hitting F5 until my lovely animu was funneling through my tubes.
Aside from that, episode 6 gave me a healthy dose of Satomi Satou sweet voice in the form of Manami. There was also a zombie in this episode. Even this anime has its fair share of “Let’s put zombies in it to make it better”. It does end on a rather heart-warming note. I’m feeling kind of wary now that I’m seeing the pace of story progression however. If this is the kind of episode I’m getting half-way through the series, what are the rest supposed to be? A little bit of hint dropping happened, but it’s mostly just Kirino emitting dangerous levels of HNNG inducing radiation.

Didn’t suck, but didn’t do anything significant.
Ritsu shares the same voice actress (Satou Satomi) as Aria from Seitokai Yakuindomo?! I heard a hint of it, but my first guess was someone completely different. Mind blown. It’s such a soothing voice too! I almost thought it was the person who did Alicia, from ARIA the Animation. Although Hisaka Yoko definitely still sounds like Mio from K-ON. Yes, Mio’s VA is also in Yakuindomo. But I like the character she’s voicing this time.
Since I’m already talking about it, might as well spit out my opinions on the show already. Seitokai Yakuindomo looks to be one comfy and slow ride. While the pacing of segments is accelerated compared to most adaptations based on 4koma, it’s letting them fly by fast enough that if it wasn’t interesting the first time, they’ve already moved on. And I guess for now the jokes are stuff that’d make me grin and chuckle.
On a side note, I thought it strange when the flying camera sequence stopped right behind a girls arse to show her pulling up a pair of what I assume to be track pants. I was about to complain about such an odd take on fanservice (I still enjoyed it, anyway) when I realized that Highschool of the Dead is airing in the same season.
One thing to keep in mind is that the director (Kanazawa Hiromitsu) worked on Princess Lover. If it’s any indication, we might end up with an episode or two with some epic lulz, as some were had during PL.
Oh. And Kuroko shows up once again. See if you can spot her!
