Magical Senpai

Heh, it’s been a while since the last time I watched such an innocently-straightforward ecchi. It’s not that Tejina Senpai is only about pantsu and secondary sex characteristics, no! It’s a comedy anime, sometimes even funny, and with kind of lovable characters. But you do know that every third joke is going to have a punch line somehow related to Senpai flashing her panties.

Other than that, what else can I say about it? I kind of liked the main character, Assistant-kun, who is from the generation of I’m-a-really-ordinary-Ordinary-Japanese-High-School-Student anime heroes. In almost every situation he acts as you’d expect a normal teenager to act and he isn’t afraid of admitting that Senpai’s, khm, curves make not only his heart go ドキドキ (I feel like an old pervert just writing this). Plot? Magical Senpai is based on a 4コマ manga, so, guys, relax — gags only, no such stupid things as plot or character development are involved.

However, yet again I have to say that 12 minutes per episode can make a difference. If the length of an episode was normal I might’ve dropped it quickly, but when it requires only a tiny bit of your time every week — Tejina Senpai turned out a nice experience.

A unique chance to see Corpsegrinder’s inhuman neck with our own eyes — Cannibal Corpse announced a concert in London! Damn, never thought I’d be able to see them live!

UPD: Aaaand… there we go

Okay, St Louis completely deserved this win. They played accurately, precisely and didn’t waste moments they had. Binnington was a brick wall. Wish Boston had scored more than a goal but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ So, now it’s time to take a break from hockey — the Knights start their season only in September.

I’ve never seen Captain Tsubasa but this is absolutely hilarious.

Watching this clip I thought, though, that it reminded me of something and than realized that it’s suspiciously similar to Tecmo Cup Soccer, a… turn-based soccer game (?), which I played when I was a kid. Turned out that Tecmo Cup Soccer is a westernized version of the Captain Tsubasa game!


Oh man! A hockey rink as a special building and “an ability to create a national park”? Surprised a bit that the hero is not Sir John Macdonald but I’m unfortunately not familiar with Canadian history much, maybe Laurier is a better choice.

“The ability to help you with your studies.
My beloved kouhai.
And my gruff father.
And this starry sky.

What I have is no more than this. What I can give you, Araragi, is no more than this. No more than this… and everything. Well, to be precise, I also have my sharp tongue and abusive remarks.”

It’s my second time and everything in Bakemonogatari is still absolutely beautiful. And that dialog is one of the most beautiful things I’ve seen in anime.
