Yup, once again, I ended up covering more than I could do. And fortunately for me, the season is actually proving to be watchable to good. Anyway, I have two new anime to cover here.
First, something of a magical girl that actually has potential. Also, hint of yuri in here that isn’t boring.
This is Flip Flappers.

Plot Summary: Papika and Cocona hold the keys to open the door. When the two girls meet, their adventures in a different time and different overlapping dimension called “Pure Illusion” begin. Many things in Pure Illusion will stand in the girls’ way on their search for the mysterious crystal called the “Shard of Mimi,” an item that is said to grant any wish. However, when the girls find themselves in danger, the Shard of Mimi shines, and they are able to transform.
First Thoughts: Not much to say here but damn, this one actually delivers in terms of both quality animation and story-wise as the sense of adventure immediately kicks in the few minutes in and I find the two leads compelling. Honestly, while it has the magical girl theme incorporated in there, it is more enjoyable to watch than the other slog that is Magical Girl Raising Project. Just watch this instead.
And now for the other show……the very, very lewd one….(heh heh.)
This is My Wife is the Student Council President+.

Plot Summary: The secret romantic relationship between Hayato Izumi and Ui Wakana has become more “exciting” with Honoka Saijō, chair of the photography club, starting stalking Wakana for possible scoops.
(It is continued from the first season – which I did watch beforehand -: High school freshman Hayato Izumi lost the campaign for student council president to Ui Wakana, a girl who shocked the entire student body by promising “will remove all restrictions on campus romance” and gave away free condoms. Later that day Wakana the president-elect brought her belongings to Izumi’s residence and claimed herself his betrothed fiancée.)
First Thoughts: Yeah, I did watch the first season before diving into this one and I have to say: This is quite charming and honestly I can respect the approach of how something like this is done considering with ecchi, things can either go good, bad, or horribly wrong and stupid but they kept it at a level where it can be both funny and heartwarming but knows. Yes, a lot of lewd, very eechi things happens on this show so I don’t expect everybody to find it a gem or something like that. (There is a censored and uncensored versions of the episode on Crunchyroll and yes, there is actual tits in here.). Now luckily for me, they don’t do the harem bullshit here. It’s just the main girl Ui and the other one Rin and as long as it doesn’t escalate, it’s fine by me.
Again, this is not going to be everyone’s cup of tea but for me…..yeah, I give it a watch. Plus, it’s 8-10 minutes an episode, so it’s fine by me.
And that’s two more down……yeah, and I’m betting I’m getting strange looks on that latter one.
I’m MAK2.0 aka The Blue Hybrid and Oi, I’m not going to be taken seriously again, am I?
