MM!

Wherein I enjoy what I did not expect to.

Coming from the … established studio which gave us shows like Kanokon and Ladies x Butlers (the latter I surprisingly finished), initial expectations were hesitant at best.

Fig 1-1: Everything Mio isn't.

The first episode was a bit heavy on the violence but… the premise held promise to  easily fill a full cour, of course the danger of becoming a parade of minor characters notwithstanding. I made a poor joke comparing the setup and flow to Ookami but perhaps it and Medaka Box serve as examples of stories where a cycle of minor climaxes and denouements (sinusoidal!) occur while the interactions and trials push the development of the core characters.

The tears won't stop

Anyway, the drama presented in episode 2 surrounding the star-crossed Arashiko seemed more reasonable in causing PTSD and her behavioral abnormalities than what was seen in Working! (Someone one one!). Outside of the drama, had some very cute moments — I think the good presentation, directing, and acting all worked together to deliver a well-paced and evocative story.

Maids!

Episode 3 closed the initial arc in a … satisfactory manner, or rather an amusingly shounen style — protagonist enduring a beating before raising to the occasion and blazing fists (lol). The highlights for me however, were a continuation of Mio’s cosplays from the first episode (forced on her by the venerable Michiru again?)~

I’ve heard the story continues for many (light novel) volumes so I doubt we’ll be given much about Mio’s story or see Taro’s problem resolved. Speaking of his “doM”, his fascination with abuse feels a bit overblown simply to facilitate the comedy or plot conveniently. Oh well~

I know the feeling, mang.

Love that hair style.

Embarrassed Mio is fine too!

    FFF that last caption, XD

    Taro’s Mjoyment face is creepy as hell. Kinda glad that this isn’t as shallow as I believed it would be, but I still wish there was less to follow this season ^^;

    Yea, it’s damn extreme and I’m not sure why. Might just have to start disregarding it, not sure.

    do is buy an aged domain. You set up blogs about your niche,
    then link in order to your main site along with the deep links
    (or other pages). Make certain that the links are relevant or your traffic will decay.
    After all, virtually all types of media agency today accesses and uses this can.

    Listen carefully and then give her more of the pleases it.
    In today’s scenario cell phones have greater charm than studies.

    People like this can be utterly fascinating to watch operate.
