Kami-sama no Memo-chou – Episode 3

The last episode of Kami-sama no Memo-chou ended in a shocking and meaningful revelation: there was a cellphone hidden inside the moneysack!  It wasn’t meaningful to me, and it wasn’t shocking to me either, since I hadn’t built up any expectations for it to knock down, but the hikkikomori detective Alice sure seemed to think it was surprising and relevant.  I will take her word for it!  She is smarter than me!  You can tell because she lives on a diet of onion soup and Dr Pepper.  Let’s watch for her to share her insight with the rest of the class in episode 3 of Kami-sama no Memo-chou.

Kami-sama no Memo-chou – Episode 2

It doesn’t seem as though R-15 is going to air uncensored after all, and it’s been pretty universally panned across the internet.  I figure I won’t even bother, at this point.  That way I have more time to watch shows like Kami-sama no Memo-chou!  I wanna see a painfully self-conscious girl detective solve mysteries with the help of a cast of wacky characters and make trenchant commentary on the state of Japanese society, so let’s watch Kami-sama no Memo-chou episode 2.

Kami-sama no Memo-chou – Episode 1

I’ve been putting off Kami-sama no Memo-chou because the first episode is a full hour long, and I sort of suspect that’s longer than my attention span. There’s a reason I write an anime blog and not, say, a movie blog, or a classic literature blog. But people are saying it’s good, and that’d be a relief, given how bad Yuru Yuri was and how bad people say R-15 is. I don’t want to put the pressure on Usagi Drop to carry the whole season. Maybe I could check out that penguin show people are taking about? Well, all that comes after episode 1 of Kami-sama no Memo-chou.
