And so it had to end, dear readers, this wonderful, quirky, and ultimately pointless series that we somehow all cared for, Koihime Musou. As you may have intuited from the post’s title the finale was underwhelming. It’s almost as if Koihime Musou wanted to flee to the security of the most peddled anime tropes after spending an entire season indulging in sexy fanservice and self-depreciating humor. Ah well. More to read below with a click!

The few, the proud, the girls of Koihime Musou!

A whole lotta talking. That’s what this week’s episode felt like. In fact, the climax of the episode revolves around Zhuge Loliang mounting a spirited defense of Guan Yu against false accusations…

"Waittaminute... they all have pink hair... and they're all named Sun Something... How are we supposed to tell them apart again?"

Wait a minute... They all have pink hair... And they're all named Sun... How are we supposed to tell them apart?

… But how, pray tell, did our precious heroines get into such a predicament in the first place? Clicky below if you’re intrigued!

Nope, not a World Destruction reference! Instead it’s a reference to… Well, to an actual bear, and not to a diminutive, alcoholic, eyepatched teddy bear adventurer.

Kuma na no da?

Yeaaaaah. Aren’t you dying to know how that came to pass? Clicky clicky!

Mmmmm… the smell of the impending fall season has me so excited I almost forgot to watch the summer shows! Not that they’re all worthless, but if I can be brutally honest for a minute, aside from Someday’s Dreamers and Antique Bakery, the summer season has brought us little more than moe heroines tripping over their shoelaces for comic effect and buckets of bouncing boobs (now there’s an arresting image).

OH SNAP.

OH SNAP. Bismarck dishes out the burns like they're on sale!

More after the break, as usual, dear reader!

Studio Dogakobo and its writing staff can’t seem to grasp what made Koihime Musou such a wickedly campy and fun show in the first place. After setting out on a promising note (01-03), the show dipped into yuri fanservice hell (04) followed by a forgettable mess (05), but regained some of its initial vigor (06) after it introduced the thigh-slappingly hilarious Zhuge Loliang, who’s a shoe-in for a spot near the top of my list of favorite new characters of the season. Six months ago I would have stabbed myself if you’d told me I’d be clamoring for moar loli; the world’s a funny place and anime affects the mind in mysterious ways.

I'd hug you if it wasn't physically impossible. Or grounds for arrest.

Now they’ve dropped the ball again with episode 07. Not a complete waste of an episode, mind you, but I must reiterate my original query, do the writers understand what the hell made their show so lovable? I do! And in an attempt to help them out of the fictional hole they’ve dug themselves into I’ll explain it right here and now.

Tonight's MC: Kyouka on catnip!

Welcome, dear readers, to the first edition of the Midseason Awards, wherein I shall take a look at the best, worst, and most average shows of the season! If you’ve been following my writing since the start few of the discussions below will surprise you, but hey, we should all step back from time to time lest we miss the forest for the trees. If you’re new around here then I hope this post will serve as a window into my anime watching habits and as a summary of the summer’s TV series thus far.

Put on your fanciest tuxedo, slap on a pair of catgirl ears, and let the ceremonies begin!
