Prisma Illya and Watamote

Watched a couple more series and things were much better.

Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya is actually more interesting than one of this season’s real mahou shoujo shows – sure I’m a jaded viewer, and Type Moon are parodying the genre, but the production quality is spiffy despite the terrible video quality (hopefully that will be fixed). That said, I’m not sure I’ll have time to follow this series – Ueda Kana and Itou Shizuka are hard to resist though…

My favourite this season is Watamote – short for “Watashi ga Motenai no wa Dou Kangaetemo Omaera ga Warui!” – a cringe-inducingly hilarious dark comedy about a semi-delusional socially-awkward girl. I suppose it follows Genshiken Nidaime’s fujoshi theme. In a way it lightly recalls NHK ni Youkoso; you feel a mixture of pity, disgust, and sympathy for the protagonist. Anyway, I’m following this one for sure.
