FINALLY!

We get to see Yotsuba&! in an anime!




...from Eromanga Sensei episode 2 which introduces the girl in pink, a rival author who is amazingly annoying. Why, she's almost as annoying as Sagiri's class rep.



Thanks to Meguni here, the show is now on probation. That darn class rep managed to inject all the squick that I was so happy the pilot avoided into the show and then some....

To our heroes' credit, he is mortified. unfortunately, he is a teenage boy and blissfully unaware that in the age of the iPhone there is no expectation of privacy, especially if one's response to an annoying, pushy girl is awkwardly phrased.  

On the plus side, he has now persuaded his sister to come out of her room occasionally. If only to do laundry.

So....

You're supposed to be Princess Emillia, from Re:Zero, right?





I'm more interested in our protagonist's agent anyway.




What are we prattling on about?

Eromanga Sensei has a dumb as rocks premise, but it's extremely well done for what it is. 

Our hero, Masamune Izume, is a light novel author...in high school, who, being recently orphaned, has to support his younger sister, Sagiri.  Complicating this is the fact that, aside from the most fleeting glimpses, he's only seen her once, briefly, when she was adopted after HER parents died. You see, she's a hikikomori, presumably because there's been a lot of death in this tweener's short life. 

Masamune has been particularly fortunate to land the services of a noted cheesecake illustrator on his latest novel series. He's never actually met the dude, but the artist helped to make his latest trilogy enough of a success that our hero is making a decent living...and loosing his anonymity, This is beginning to further complicate his already hectic life. 

This being anime, things take a turn for the weird when series of conversations during and after a book signing and an obscure website set our hero on a path to discovering a shocking secret that will change his life forever!

Hijinks ensue.

This was a really solid first episode and except for one gratuitously tasteless gag  at 14:29 this is really cute show, though I'm not sure how far they can go with this.

Bad Engineering






From episode 11 of Tanya the Evil which has graphic violence and black humor to go with its poor role models.
