We broke out some new summer anime for animenite. The roundup:

We could not detect any semblance of a plot in Shukufuku no Campanella, though we did determine that a guy named Leicester is the main character and he has a hot mom who likes to rub her boobs on him. Unsurprisingly this one's an eroge adaptation. Nifty character designs but nothing else going for it.

Giant Killing: sports anime about soccer and your basic "new manager called in to save struggling team, whose methods are infuriating but who gets undeniable results." Much more interesting than Shukufuku no Campanella, not that that's saying much.

On the other hand, Uragiri wa Boku no Namae o Shitteiru aka Betrayal Knows My Name aka UraBoku has a... very different target audience, let's say. This one's kind of interesting in that the main character seems to have been a woman in a previous life. Very pretty artwork. BL seems likely. Also some suspicious talk about "resetting the world" and some other supernatural ominousness.

Not quite sure where Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakama-tachi (Ms. Wolf and the Seven Companions, roughly) is going to end up, but it's pretty entertaining, generous with crazy fairytale imagery, and has a fiesty female lead who beats the crap out of people with kitty-headed boxing gloves. Also a very chatty narrator who enjoys disparaging the female lead's breast size.

And then there's Seitokai Yakuindomo, which basically sums up as "one of the first male students at a newly-coed school gets roped into becoming Student Council Vice President, in which capacity his quirky female co-councilors leap to many incorrect conclusions based on the assumption that boys are sex-crazy, volunteer TMI, and generally seem to go out of their way to mess with his head." Not as much fun as Ookami-san, but funny if you don't mind off-color jokes.

Also gradually catching up on Durarara! and various other spring series. Finally got to watch Senkou no Night Raid episode 5, which to my pleasure was a Kazura spotlight episode, and yes, they are still writing him Just For Me.
