Luck & Logic -- ep 7

Bath episode! Buy-the-BD shots!

Aside from that, and a lot of angst, a waste of time. Sheesh.

Olga keeps varying between sympathetic character and total asshole. It's obvious to even the most casual of observers that and I wish they'd get on with it. But I guess they can't, because that's also obviously going to be the final plot arc.

UPDATE: Athena is turning out to be major league angsty. I guess it's in the rules: if you get a magical girlfriend, she's either going to be tsundere or angsty. Frankly, I don't like either of those but at least tsundere gets you better fan service.

UPDATE: NSFW pandering below the fold.

1 "I guess it's in the rules: if you get a magical girlfriend, she's either going to be tsundere or angsty." Would Belldandy be an exception? I don't think she was too angsty in the anime.

2 Beldandy was totally angsty, and let's not get sidetracked by her please.

3 Here's a question: Would Ruby and Yukari from Rosario to Vampire count as magical girlfriend characters?

4 "Magical girlfriend" isn't the same as "harem".

Yes, magical girlfriend is a narrative trope, not a character trope. The girlfriend doesn't even have to be a magic-user; Chobits is a magical girlfriend show with a robot girl, and FLCL with an alien, for examples.  You just need a putzy everydude completely outkicking his coverage with some sort of supernatural female. 

Rosario is just a harem with two witches in it; it head-faked being a magical-girlfriend story (with Moka as the magical girlfriend), until Tsukune powered up.

So if Potato-kun in Luck and Logic gets his mojo back, it could take the same track, I suppose.

6 I just want to say that I love the "outkicking his coverage" metaphor you just used. That's the first time I've seen that particular sports term used in that way, and I applaud it.
