⚫ Houkago no Pleiades will be in 4 episodes for a total of 25 minutes length and will be shown on youtube in HD! #1
⚫ Nyantype magazine March issue is out! View a compilation of all this month’s posters here! Then there’s the Megami magazine posters compiled here. It’s always fun to pit them against each other this month and decide which one has the more arousing offering! What are your thoughts on this month? Personally, I think this is one of the best Megami issues in months, and it’s clearly the victor! The new-season shows have taken over with some glorious results: Kuroneko is looking utterly stunning in school swimsuit; Merry is showing off her DFC in a sukumizu as well; Victorique is looking adorable in her poster; the Oniichan poster is fittingly ero; Yutorichan (no. 17) is potently loli; while the Idol M@ster B2-size poster is this month’s star attraction!
Meanwhile, Nyantype offers a few gems: The IS swimsuit poster is very attractive, the Mitsudomoe sukumizu-bondage poster is extra ero, and the Madoka Magica bikini poster is superb! Your thoughts?
⚫ You can see an extensive screencap comparison between TV and BD version of Strike Witches episodes here. Other than the obvious uncensorship (which is fantastic), there are also a plethora of minor but welcomed animation fixes.
⚫ Seems like this year’s TAF is looking at a deficit of approximately 6,400,000 yen, showing a big impact from the pull-out of many major anime production companies and publishers. Good. This sends a strong message to governor Ishihara in regards to his manga regulations bill. source.
⚫ Kadokawa releasing a new magazine, 4koma Nano Ace. The lineup for volume one includes Nichijou (soon to be a KyoAni anime), Baka Test manga, and a Nanoha Force manga (a parody 4koma). Could be good. Volume one comes out on the 9th of March. source
* I didn’t get a chance to watch the new episodes of anime today, unfortunately. Looking forward to them tomorrow.

We’re clearly past the pivot point in this season, just like last time focus has shifted from the so-called “peaceful days” of pervert-Tomoki to the serious story side. This time we’re getting closer to the root of the overarching Sora no Otoshimono story, which is making things more exciting (although I hope there’s enough left for another season!). I never really expected it to, but this anime is actually becoming pretty good for its sci-fi ideas. I like the very natural combination of dream-travel and multiple dimensions, and an almost matrix-like element. The meddling of the Angeloids’ “mother” is pretty cool, and the new villain, Angeloid 2.0 is pretty intense! Her name is Chaos, and she’s voiced by the lovely Aki Toyosaki! She’s a crazy nun-style loli who’s blatantly sadistic. This episode, she threatens Tomoki and then toys with Nymph’s heart before physically punishing her. She’s definitely going to shake things up. She’s also the most loli character to ever appear on the show. In Sora no Otoshimono a girl without huge breasts is so rare! Wonder we’ll get fanservice of this Angeloid? But Nymph was the highlight of the episode for me. She’s not just a girl in love, she’s an insecure Angeloid who feels unwanted without a master. Whenever this side to her character comes out, she gains moe points, big time. I love the Nymph who wants a master just as much as I loved the Nymph who wanted to be free! It was quite heartbreaking to see her so happy when imposter-Tomoki asked her to be her master, only to then discover that it was all fake. Chaos needs a spanking for this!
