And I was wrong that they were holding back a big title. The last one is Rin ~ Daughters of Mnemosyne. Which I hadn't even heard of. It's a 6-ep OVA that was released about a year ago.
They've got a publicity picture which includes the heroine, and the blurb for the series begins this way: "Rin Asogi doesn’t stand out in a crowd, but that’s okay by her."
Um, actually, from the picture she damned well stands out a lot. Them's E cups, I do believe, at least Japanese E cups.
It doesn't sound too bad, but it's hardly earth shattering, either. I'll probably buy it when it comes out, but it isn't Strike Witches. It isn't even Rosario to Vampire.
Still, we must be grateful for what we're given, and it's nice that someone in R1 is making license announcements. And they did announce Bamboo Blade.
Kick-arse theme song, though... ridiculously over-the-top.

Um, yeah, if you really liked Elfen Lied, maybe... I mean, I'm good to go with everything from "nudity" on, but the first three might be a problem.

The nicest thing I can say about the music is that it wasn't rap.

The pity of Mnemosyne is that it's really quite good. The terrible cruelty that flies around the show, however, makes it difficult for anybody with a soul to watch.

Wonderduck, I think I must be getting really, really old. I couldn't watch that video all the way through.
Maybe it's because I got tired of rock before heavy metal became a big thing, and nowadays I don't listen to music at all. Or maybe it's because I was always a square.
