I am something of a hopeless romantic – if by ‘hopeless romantic’ you mean ‘I like watching cute anime couples be in love and stuff’. I’m all for realistic and nuanced relationships, but there’s something to be said for those that feature excessive levels of moe as well (it’s cuter).

And it’s been a pretty decent year for cute lovey-dovey anime couples. We had Ano Natsu de Matteru, Sukitte Ii na yo, Inu x Boku SS, Hidamari Sketch, Mirai Nikki, and many others all delivering on their promises of a joyous and wonderful little romance.

Insightful commentary ahHHHNNNNNGGGGGG

I feel bad for any show that isn’t Sakamichi no Apollon because holy BALLS did it blow everything out of the water this week. And that’s even when you consider that a lot of the shows I’m watching had really strong episodes AND Sakamichi finally had to start competing with AKB004pffffahahaha I can’t even finish that sentence with a straight face.

A lot of good episodes this week – many series that were disappointing last week had much better ones this week. Alas, with everything being 2-3 episodes in, the animation quality is starting to take a hit. Although that may just be Hyouka making everything else look like trash.
