Weekly Anime Round-Up: June 3rd – June 9th

We are down to the last handful of episodes from this season, and most of the shows will be ending in the coming weeks.  A movie for last year’s hit romance/comedy Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai has been announced this week.  While this show was my biggest favorite last year, I’m not sure if the story can really come up with the content for both a movie and the proposed second season.  I’ll cross those bridges when I come to them, but for now, let’s check out some awesome anime!

Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge:  Episode 10
(The Severing Crime Edge)
ANIME FACT:  All orphaned lolis take up this profession.

It’s time for another fantastic episode of lewd murderers, and this week we are treated to the best one yet.  Kiri is a little worried that he may have come on to strong after putting the moves on Iwai last week, so he’s reduced to nervously watching his phone.  Meanwhile, Iwai is worried because her magic hair has stopped growing for some reason, so she sets out for a day of shopping.  Unfortunately, a deadly loli assassin is hunting her down.  This episode features an unexpectedly badass fight between a knife-wielding loli and a dude with a pair of scissors.

Date a Live:  Episode 10
Kotori has a little captain in her today.

Date a Live continues on its rampage of awesomeness this week, thanks to the fact the Kotori has joined the fray… as one seriously ass-kicking spirit.  Many questions are answered this week, and the stage has been set for quite an upcoming conflict as well.  In a season full of great shows, this one is still standing to among a handful of the best.  Don’t miss this!

Ginga Kikoutai Majestic Prince:  Episode 10
Even her massive rack can’t help her clinger personality.

Command is spilling their guts to the core members of MJP, in order to prepare them for future battles.  This week we learn all about what the Wulgaru really are, why they are fighting earth, and why one of their Nobles have defected to side of humanity.  This can only mean more hot-blooded mecha action for us in the future.

Haiyore! Nyarlko-san W:  Episode 9
(The Crawling Chaos Nyarlko-san W)
Yup, she finally escaped.

Kuuko’s sister has somehow escaped her dimensional prison, so everyone is on guard for the potential for fiery death.  When everyone then decides to go to school like nothing happened anyway, they find their fellow classmates being forced to play “analog” games by hypnosis.  Parodies of everything from Evangelion to High School of the Dead are part of the comedy this week.  Have fun and stay sane!

Hataraku Maou-sama!:  Episode 10
(The Devil is a Part-Timer!)
My god, it’s full of stars…

After a successful campaign against the chicken joint next door, Sadao is sent out to help another MgRonald’s franchise in need.  This episode showcases a very special miracle of the universe, CHIHO IN A BIKINI!!!  Ahem… sorry, I had to get that out of my system.

Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko:  Episode 9
(The Hentai Prince and the Stony Cat)
The cat god is fair, but perverted.

As great as it is to be the ruler of a swimsuit kingdom, Youto has to get to the bottom of this craziness.  This can only mean that things have to get even crazier.  It also means the coming of a phenomenon I have named “mass nudity.”

Hyakka Ryouran: Samurai Bride:  Episode 10
The impressive thing is that Naoe is actually taking training somewhat seriously.

Once again, things have more of a focus on story this week, to prepare us for the final battle royale.  We learn all about the guardian stone and the true reason for appearance of the dark samurai.  Just in case you would be upset by the lack of ecchi content for this week, they tossed in a quick bath scene for good measure.

Kakumeiki Valvrave:  Episode 9
(Valvrave the Liberator)
Spider valvrave is the best one so far.

Since the module is full of teenagers that know nothing about combat trying to lead a revolt, everyone has placed trust in L-Elf to run the place.  Whether or not it was a good idea to put a former enemy in charge is up for debate, but we have to remember we are watching Valvrave when those questions pop up.  Two more lucky winners toss aside their humanity to become Valvrave pilots this week, be sure to tune in and find out who they are!

Namiuchigiwa no Muromi-san:  Episode 10
Muromi always sets a good example for children.

This week Taku gets a break from Muromi and her crazy friends.  Instead, Muromi washes ashore in Malaysia with a massive hangover and pesters a little girl wandering the beach.  We also learn important things, like how the Kraken is a bad drunk at parties.

Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai.:  Episode 10
(My Little Sister Can’t be this Cute 2, AKA:  Oreimo 2)
PROTIP:  Don’t get a nickname like this in the HR office of your workplace.

This time Kyousuke gets suckered into taking on his manager persona once again, in order to appease an old friend.  The good news is Kyousuke can help Kirino get tickets to a festival for the Meruru anime, complete with a concert featuring ClariS.  For those not in the know, ClariS is the artist that performed the OP song for a certain show about magical girls that is all the rage these days…

Shingeki no Kyojin:  Episode 10
(Attack on Titan)
This week Armin finally grows a pair.

Okay, if you haven’t caught up with Titan by now, I’m done holding my tongue, so go get caught up on Titan before reading.  This week Eren is in a standoff with his former allies, because suddenly transforming into a titan seems to have that effect on people.  Can Eren and his friends convince the army that he still wants to kill filthy titan scum?  Watch and find out!

Suisei no Gargantia:  Episode 10
(Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet)
Only Bender could be happier about looting.

Last week’s spoiler was a big one, so catch up before reading any further.  The good news is that Ledo has destroyed every last one of the Earth-type Hideauze.  That bad news is he is feeling a little glum about it now that he knows they are actually genetically modified humans that have been fighting a race war for centuries.  Meanwhile, Pinion has practically become drunk with power now that he is free to loot the spoils of advanced weapon technology, and even goes so far to tell the world about it.  Shit is going to get serious from here on out.

Toaru Kagaku no Railgun S:  Episode 9
(A Certain Scientific Railgun)
Another of Academy City’s Level 5s appears!

Just as Misaka thinks she can catch her breath after an intense battle with the loli-bomber, backup arrives.  Now Misaka has to survive fighting another Level 5 esper paired with someone that can track her every move.  Enjoy yet another awesome, action-packed episode.  And they say Railgun is only about cute girls doing cute things…
