Waiting, waiting, waiting...

I've been waiting all this week for the AT-X version of Ange Vierge but it hasn't come along. I'm not sure exactly when it'll happen but I suspect it's going to be late this evening.

In the mean time, someone pushed the "Live in interesting times" button, or more like started pounding on it with a hammer. Monstrous terror attack in France yesterday, and now there's been a military coup in Turkey.

Actually, the coup I've been expecting has been Venezuala but that keeps not happening. (If I was an insurance company I sure wouldn't be willing to offer a life insurance policy to Maduro.)



The whole world is going crazy, and all I want is to see Amane in the bath without fog. Is that too much to ask? (My luck, it'll turn out that the AT-X version isn't decensored.)

1 Here's hoping another Muslim Brotherhood acolyte and Obama fellow-traveler bites the dust.  The schadenfreude should alleviate any Amane fog-induced distress.

Good hunting to the Turkish Military.  If they pull it off, they can get rid of a Erdogan who uses Muslim terrorists with plausible deniability the same way Obama uses Black terrorists in America.  It will also be a blow to the EU elite, not to mention choking off a Muslim "refugee" artery into Europe - not a panacea of course.

Ultimately, it's a question of whether the inherent danger your enemy poses overrides the danger of confronting him.  I don't think purging the military worked out for Erdogan as well as he'd hoped.

Obama, take notice.

3 Rykehaven, I try to keep the conspiracy theories to a minimum around here. I don't believe Obama is "using Black terrorists" etc.

The ghost of Creighton Abrams said 'Nah, I'll pretend I didn't hear that.'

Personally, I am enjoying Prisma Liner myself this season.  What about you?

There isn't anything this season for me, unless Ange Vierge is uncensored on AT-X.

Nothing at all

6 cxt, I've been ridiculously entertained by ReLife, aided by the curious decision to put the entire series up on Lumpyroll at once... meaning no need to watch week-to-week.

And then there's the Aria-'em-up called Amanchu, written by Kozue Amano herownbadself.  Added bonus: the music could have been lifted from Neo-Venezia itself.

Amanchu does seem a nice series, but the character design are unpleasant, and some of the character animations just are not right.  It feels like they were trying to decide between SD and realistic, and ended up with a hideous mixture of the two.

And to the occasional interloper - go and watch some Yuru Yuri.  You will enjoy your life more.

8 The coup attempt ended in a whimper, and Erdogan is left in a stronger position than ever.  However, given his inclinations, Erdogan's reprisals will be major and vicious - and if anything could, might just spark a much larger and wider coup attempt against him.

9 ...and it appears the they didn't find their quarry.   Erdogan isn't under house arrest, nor is he 3 ft under.  More's the pity.

Hmm...shots fired.  That justifies a last-stand retort later, if I recover from my Saturday morning mood.

Looking at Yuru Yuri; the interloper does enjoy life, and you should try it some time.  I've been waiting to continue Twelve Kingdoms.  Romance of the Kingdoms meets anthropomorphic furballs and unicorns.

I'll look into Relife and Amanchu later.

Retort.

ReLife, thus far, has its moments of levity.
