School Idol
Back Street Girls (dub) - Episodes 4 - 10)

Okay, I suppose the crazy premise had me hooked plus it was short. As I mentioned before, there are certain landmines ancomedy involving a TG element can step into and, yes, a few do blow up, playing the wrong things for laughs which being a boack comedy doesn't always excuse. The basic premise I'd say id fine, the main trio aren't in their situation by choice so it isn't exactly realistic. If the main purpose of the series is to be a vicious takedown of the Idol industry then I'd say it has some decent success. The main scensrio itself could be read as a critique of how manufactured many idols can be, now so extreme that three people who are the polar opposite of that type have been moulded into them. It certainly has the abuse factor though turned up to eleven of course. The animation, well, relies more on its detailed art than actual movement, they use it well but its clearly a budget production. The actresses playing the trio's frmale voices are certainly having fun with this script, getting to be super vulgar.

Liz and the Blue Bird - This film really does reaffirm just how much I love Kyoto Animation. Nozomi and Mizore's arc in Sound! Euphonium was my favourite part of the series so it was great to have a movie focused on them with the direction of Naoko Yamada. The character designs also feature a softer style than in the series that fits the gentler tone of the movie. Same goes for the soundtrack by Kensuke Ushio, quickly becoming one of my favourite composers. Overall Liz and the Blue Bird is definitely one of of KyoAni's best and easily gets a 10/10 from me.

Saint Seiya: Knights of the Zodiac (English audio) - Episodes 1-3

I really dig the opening and ending songs done by The Struts. While this anime isn't the best starting point for the franchise (due to various changes and animation approach), I found it to be interesting enough to get into the series. As the original anime is not available legally, I'll track down the video game Saint Seiya: Soldier Soul.

There are currently only 6 episodes available of the planned 12.

Saint Seiya: Knights of the Zodiac (English audio) - Episodes 4-6 (On-Hold until Part 2 is available)

These next few episodes were alright, they didn't grab me as much as the previous three had done and I guess part of that was down to the fact that a lot of what has happened isn't exactly the same as the original material.

The end of the 6th episode is basically the end of the arc.
