(Free cookies for everyone who gets the reference.) First up we have Sorrow-kun’s Tamayura: Hitotose review, which notes that, despite the director of the series being the one who did ARIA the Animation, it lacks a special something to make it a hit show for all fans. Next is Kaikyaku’s thoughts on Scrapped Princess, which was a show that I distinctly remember watching back in middle school. The anime’s mix of fantasy setting and intriguing plot, alas, are unable to allow the series to truly take off. […]

And I kinda wish they were, because if you’re not taking the ball to the endzone by the time your title ends with a “4”, you haven’t made full use of your time. Natsume Yuujinchou Shi is still smelling the hibiscuses, placidly walking through the forest in the same way each of its last seasons have done. The first three episodes have featured a 2 ep arc and a standalone episode, but neither story has been a remarkable game changer. Even ARIA was aware that all good things must end. […]

Tamayura ~Hitotose~ carries on from the Tamayura OVA, but starts off with the story leading up to Fuu’s arrival in Takehara. There’s little change in the tone in the TV series, as Tamayura continues to be subdued and charming, but if there is a difference, Hitotose comes off as a little more melancholic than OVAs were. This will pretty much only appeal to iyashikei fans, and that’s where any sensible recommendations should be pitched, with the to-be-converted pointed in the direction of ARIA. […]
