Another fun episode that centers around Sylvia and her supposedly tyrannical older sister. We get more cute humor from Eco, the best part being when Eco wondered if a certain substance was delicious.
They actually attempted to tell a story in this episode, one of tragic love. Of course, it all ends horribly, with the narrator telling Kyoko her chest isn’t meant for harboring affections, instead only existing to be fondled. That’s nice.
That was so much work. I think I just saw my soul leaving my body. But damn, it was worth it.
Brynhildr in the Dark? Right now, not so much. This shot comes from the most recent episode, I assume the fourth one.
I just noticed this while in the edit, I’m surprised I didn’t catch this before. The GIF above was made from the Tokyo MX broadcast version of episode one. It remains 100% unchanged on BD. With all the blank boobs and obvious nipple adds coming later, I had just assumed the TV broadcast would be 100% nipple free.
Though mostly non-nude, this was a decent enough fanservice manga (based on the light novel of the same name). I thought the anime was pretty average, though the unexpected nude scene in the final blu-ray certainly came as a welcome surprise.
You have to hand it to DxD, it’s not only one of the better fanservice vehicles of all time, but it actually managed to feel like a real anime while doing it. That’s not easy to pull off.
The torrent I uploaded earlier today did not have any BD extras. Just now I uploaded a new torrent that has everything except for the scans (NCOP, etc).
Those who follow a certain Japanese anime blog probably already saw this, but those who haven’t, screencaps for Maken-Ki Two’s second blu-ray have now hit the interwebs and dare I say that it looks even more impressive than the first volume was.
It is interesting to think that back in 1982, this anime probably passed as a family comedy. Today I can only imagine the reaction to a series with so much sexism and inappropriate nudity among other unseemly themes. Actually, we’ve seen stuff far worse, but it didn’t come in a family sitcom type of package where most of the characters are little kids.
