Weekly Anime Round-Up: July 29th – August 4th

The round up is going to be short for a few weeks.  It seems that there is a gathering of athletes from around the world that is hoarding global media attention, and it seems that some anime will have to step aside until this whole thing blows over.  Koichoco and Imouto Hunter D will be on hiatus for a few weeks until the Olympics are over, as I mentioned last week.  In the meantime, here is some anime that is still airing between Michael Phelps making swimming unfair to the rest of humanity.

Accel World:  Episode 17

With his training complete and a new weapon in his arsenal, Haru decides it is time for vengeance.  There is an awful lot that happens in this episode, and I don’t really want to spoil the outcome.  Prepare to rage at the end of this episode.  Seriously, what a whore…

Dog Days Season 2:  Episode 5

Rumors of bandits pestering a town on the border of the kingdom compel Nanami to investigate.  With a couple of guards at her side, Nanami visits a town with a very eastern Flair in hopes of catching the notorious bandits.  The show returns to being more of a light-hearted action/comedy, with the heavy helpings of fan service taking a backseat this week. (Don’t worry ecchi fans, there is some pointless nudity tossed in this episode) Oh, and it seems Couvre and Becky are hatching a plan…

Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon, Season 2:  Episode 4
(Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere)

So it seems England is going to prepare for the upcoming war with… a festival.  In the meantime, the girls need a bath!  This episode is nothing more than shameless fan service.  That being said, it was a great episode.  Enjoy!

Oda Nabuna no Yabou:  Episode 4
(The Ambition of Oda Nabuna)

After the mistakes Sagara made trying to alter the past, he is soon forced to prove his worth to Nabuna.  Things get even worse when Sagara faces a ninja clan led by Hattori Hanzo.  This episode brings more of the comedy goodness that makes this show so fun to watch, along with some really awesome action at the end.

Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse:  Episode 5

After Yuuya’s hard lesson about the dangers of hanging out with cute and insane soviet girls, he returns to training with the Japanese TSF he despises so much.  Yuuya tries to come to terms with his Japanese heritage and memories of his family in order to understand the fighting style of Japanese TSF pilots.  Unfortunately for him and the rest of the squad, Yui has decided that the best way to train everyone is with a thorough ass-kicking.

Sword Art Online:  Episode 5

This week Kirito finds himself investigating the deaths of players who are somehow getting PK’d (player killed) in safe areas.  Normally a player has to enter a dual in order to fight another player, but now it seems there is someone with the ability to kill a player anywhere, at any time.  Enjoy this episode of massively multiplayer online Law and Order.

Yuru Yuri Season 2:  Episode 5

This week Akari gets lots of screen time… by getting stranded at a train station on a blistering hot summer day.  As everyone else enjoys a day at the pool, poor Akari has everything that could possibly go wrong for her happen at the train station of loneliness.  Later on, the girls play the latest RPG and Sakurako comes over to play.  Some would say I’m committing blasphemy by saying this, but this show is like a modern-day Lucky Star.  It’s that good, at least as far as slice of life shows go.
