Dated 16 September 2014: It turns out I dropped Rokujouma no Shinryakus​ha!? before finishing my blog entry announcing I was watching it

Sanae
Ghost in a jar.

Originally, I was going to say I was watching Rokujouma no Shinryakusha!? (Invaders of the Rokujouma!?) because it had a ghost girlfriend even though the ghost in it isn't quite girlfriend enough to be a ghost girlfriend. Neither was Nanana, for that matter, but I wanted an excuse to trot out my Ghost Girlfriends tag again. I'm not actually a fan in particular of ghost girlfriends, but I liked Yuuko from Tasogare Otome x Amnesia and I thought Itoshi no Kana (My Lovely Ghost Kana) was way better than it had any business being. I wasn't too impressed with Asura Cryin' despite the presence of Haruka De Tomaso Pantera, though. Rokujouma no Shinryakusha!? also features an ecclectic group of individuals all living in the same house, a formula that I've enjoyed in such shows as Dokkoida?! and Love Hina, but it wasn't enough. I was already pretty far behind with Rokujouma, but I dropped it because the ghost girlfriend's flavor of Postmodern Tsundere is the stupid variety. I'm actually okay with Postmodern Tsundere (it's way better than Modern Tsundere, at least), but it's so poorly executed here that I've lost all motivation for catching up with the series. I'd rather use the time to continue reducing my Detective Conan backlog.

Dated 30 September 2014: Summer 2014 season conclusion

Slaine
Slaine has seen some shit.

Aldnoah.Zero was far and away the best show from Summer 2014. I know a lot of viewers disagree with this opinion, but I thoroughly enjoyed all of its episodes. I've written a lot about it. Probably too much, considering I don't like it thaaat much even though it did almost get a perfect score on my little chart jobbie.
