7 Days of Anime (7DA) is a column by the mangatron where he grades the episode of the week for the series' that he follows. Grades are done with 3 things in mind: 1) How well the episode fits into the current pacing [of the main story], 2) How well it maintained a viewers interest, and 3) overall enjoyment level (Animation quality, sounds of music and voice, and use of story elements).
A = Time well spent
B = If it's your cup of tea, drink it
C= Only the fans will enjoy it regardless
+ = And then some
- = Something is missing...
Asobi ni Ikuyo! Episode 05
Pros: Hmm hm, full body suit Wan-chan. I'll admit if they ever mentioned her name, I forgot already.
Cons: Uhm, let me get this straight. Aoi can put that suit on at will. Great.... And I have to ask this, just what is it with rich people owning a large house and stuff and a lot of the same thing. Is there anyone like that in this world? Just who set up this stereotype for anime/manga in the first place? Don't tell me it's Richie Rich. Not to mention they are occasionally portrayed as loners whose life sucks till they come across the main chara's...
Strike Witches Episode 06
Pros: You gotta love the Sanya-Eila moments in this ep. Tis really sweet, I tells ya. Like ze end, ja. And, Perrine-chan with her hair that messed up was cute. Her training session was funny too.
Cons: Hmm....bath censors? Yeah, they be bad I say. And, I gotta know.... when the girls go rocket booster up into the great beyond, wouldn't the stage 1 girls be toast? I mean, they are pretty close to the stage 2 girls when they fired their rockets. Gots to be some invisible magic, I tells ja ;)
Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakama-tachi Episode 07
Pros: Uhm.... this is as girly as we'll ever see of Ookami-chan. The little bonnet cap thing, the not-revealing dress, the "I'm a 13 yr-old girl" thing going.
Cons: She's flat chested. OOOOHHHH no that's not me who said that. In all seriousness though, this kind of felt like the typical date episode, that won't really progress the relationship of the main chara's in question. Sucks to be Ryoushi, being an Onii-san for naught.
Amagami SS episode 07
Pros: I'll admit, that part where Kaoru and Juni were talking outside of the restaraunt, her legs were so pretty. Them thigh-highs, that mini-skirt, oh.... I'm not laughing, I'm melting....melting...
Cons: You won't laugh this episode. Well, maybe during the non-Kaoru moments, but I did get a laugh when Juni walks away thinking he said a cool thing. Wait, why is lack of laughs a con...
Shukufuku no Campanella Episode 07
Pros: Nice battle at the end. I spied me some Chelsea pantsu.
Cons: Well, they'll be talking a lot, if that makes you sleepy. Me, I like to brave the first half solely for the benefit of waiting for the eye-catch. And got some nice pantyhose eye-catch this time :D
Highschool of the Tot Episode 06
Cons: See above. No wait, I mean that big nasty paragraph above. Or unless fanservice doesn't suit you, then yeah...
Seitokai Yakuindomo Episode 07
Pros: Swimsuits, bath scenes, great jokes and what not, even Hata-chan joins the fun. Shino x Tsuda moments too, it's great. I got a huge laugh from Shino's bathing suit color choice (knew that was coming) and Tsuda's eroge gaming fantasy.
Cons: Very few beach episodes go all 20 minutes or so. Always gotta be first half, or less than half a half, or probably just 5 minutes of scenes, or...I'm ranting, aren't I?
Sekirei ~Pure Engagement~ Episode 06
Pros: Whaa! Ripped clothes! It's assault! Assault I tells ya! I mean, you can clearly see them boobies on there! I don't know what to think anymore!!!!!
Cons: Gah, a kiss between a boy and... that's a girl, right? Oh lordy... it really is boobies. But, as the camera panned down low, we don't see an elephant. Does that mean it's a girl? Yippe kay yay!
