Aargh-- why did they make this adaptation so lifeless...? (And I don't recall SPOILER: Highlight text to read: Mia ever outright spelling out contradictions, either; she just gives you hints... Also, they left out another great contradiction, besides... *AND* they're leaving out all of Phoenix's awesomely snarky inner comments!! Although, Oldbag is about to appear, which should at least make for some good hilarity, if they do it right; but at this point I'm unfortunately not optimistic about that prospect, either...... ) At this point I'd much rather quit watching this and just replay the (awesome!) games, but I'm still holding out a tiny bit of hope for the show later on since the fantastic Edgeworth's-past case of game 1 and the even-more-fantastic last case of game 2 (with that AMAZING tension-- again, if it's done right) are still ahead...
Bungou Stray Dogs episode 3:
......Uh, yikes. Er, let's just ignore what was going on in the bottom-left corner of the screen at the beginning...... *Ahem*-- moving on, though, at least the rest of the ep. pretty much made up for that, first with humor that was actually funny, and then with it getting *real* serious, *real* fast...! Seriously, holy crap, that was just brutal. The main baddie is a complete monster. (Made for some great fighting, though. )
Kiznaiver episode 3:

^ Heh, I just automatically raise my suspension-of-disbelief tolerance level several orders higher when it's a Trigger show, LOL. It's not really supposed to be all that serious in the first place, after all...
Anyway, as for this ep.: ......WUT...... ......Ohhh dear. Er, well, I suppose it figures that the last member'd be an actual SPOILER: Highlight text to read: hardcore masochist, but even for Trigger that was a bit much... ('Immoral,' indeed... ) *Ahem*-- that said, it was pretty amusing to see all those presumed scientists/government people or whatever sitting there and watching/accepting all of that with complete seriousness... (Also LOL at Tenga. He is totally the best character of the show. )
Mayoiga, a.k.a. The Lost Village, episode 4:
Welp, that was a tad confusing... (...And LOL, they saw a giant *what*?? ) Aside from the kinda messy plot here, though, one mildly interesting little detail I did notice was that they haven't actually SPOILER: Highlight text to read: been able to physically *confirm* any deaths yet, despite there already being a few *seeming* ones... also, the SPOILER: Highlight text to read: "They might not make it, but they won't die" line-- which, considering the apparent SPOILER: Highlight text to read: death right afterwards, was an extremely odd statement -- actually might make sense when taken in context with that little detail... (Otherwise, though, yeah; this is not a great show... )
And Tanaka-kun Is Always Listless episode 3:
Hee, why is this show so amusing/adorable? I laughed so hard at Tanaka SPOILER: Highlight text to read: actually spelling out the kanji for 'white' with his white pieces, and then Ohta taking a picture of it with his phone , as well as the inner/outer personality contrast with the new girl. And Tanaka's extremely logical (and just plain common-sense) solution to her overdramatic 'problem' was hilariously, perfectly on-point. And then the warm/cold scene... and the extra-long deadpan pauses... Oh, and I just about did a spit-take at the SPOILER: Highlight text to read: "No, we're steady, like an old couple" line, LOL. Now, all that said, I was certainly not expecting SPOILER: Highlight text to read: who Miyano ended up 'confessing' to-- and how emphatic it was, besides, LOL -- and due to the pretty-much-non-reactions from the boys I have no idea whether or not that was supposed to be taken 'seriously' or just as SPOILER: Highlight text to read: friendly love, but either way I doubt that it's going to get much more focus, so whatever. And, finally: The SPOILER: Highlight text to read: 'Machoco,' oh my gosh!
