Doujin Work & Zero no Tsukaima – Futatsuki no KishiJuly 15, 2007
Naturally Doujin Work‘s story of a girl who wants to become a big star in the doujin business reminds a lot of Comic Party, but that’s not major problem because I found the later quite entertaining. This time the motivation to create doujinshis doesn’t come from some mildly psychotic otaku friend, but from the main lead, Najimi Osana, herself after having observed how much money one could gain this way. The artwork ,while being rather simplistic, looks nice and the animation quality is quite good so far. With the interesting character set and an episode length of only 14 minutes each I don’t think I’ll go wrong watching this.
Zero no Tsukaima – Futatsuki no Kishi
Having enjoyed the first season of Zero no Tsukaima there was no way for me to skip this. The first episode of the second season connects quite smoothly with the end of the first episode although the relationship between Louise and Saito returns to being rather flustered toward each other (as expected). Louise is now (even) more jealously and Saito more “perverted” than I remembered from the first season, but that just might be because of the plot of this episode. In any case it’s nice to watch the Zero no Tsukaima characters again and hopefully this time they’ll face some better opponents than last time.
