Version 5.4 ~ Haruhi gave rock and roll to you.

23 September 2008: Narue no Sekai 1, Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu 0

Narue is pretty tolerant of Kazu's hobby, all things considered.

Just so you know, the episode-ten-cosplay-cafe episode of Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu falls far short of the standard set by the episode-10-cosplay-contest episode of Narue no Sekai. First of all, the cosplay contest of Narue no Sekai is AWESOME. But more importantly, I can't abide stories that rely on dragging out simple misunderstandings—especially when they could be easily resolved with less than two minutes of conversation.

Chase the dream, Haruka.

Even still, Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu is good enough to serve as my low-expectation series this season. I've compared it to Narue no Sekai before, but Nogizaka isn't quite as good, unfortunately. Comparing it to other low-expectation shows I've watched, I'd say Nogizaka is not as good as Tokimeki Memorial ~Only Love~, but better than Da Capo.
