Magical Girl Spec-Ops Asuka: First Impressions

As many of you know, I've always been a huge fan of the Magical Girl genre. I mean, how could you not, after my ravings during the Spellbooks and Horoscopes collab with Aria? However, it's been a while since i've found a magical girl show that really recaptures the magic of those first few I …

Pocket Picks #10 – Magical Lolis!?

Well... This is an interesting one here, and please don't think badly of me for the suggestion. For the longest time, I was hesitant to watch this show, as it seemed a bit... outside my comfort zone. A friend finally convinced me to give it a watch, however, and though I honestly feel like i'll …

Spellbooks and Horoscopes – Boueibu Happy Kiss! Episode 11

Astral: Well now, that was an interesting episode this week, wasn’t it? Some good, some bad, and honestly, I have quite a bit to talk about, which may end up being quite the wall of text. So before I take over, what did you think about the episode? Aria: I don’t think it was the …

Spellbooks and Horoscopes: Boueibu Happy Kiss! Episode 9

Aria: Another fanservice episode, and another episode where the monster has pretty much no significance at all.

His motivations didn’t really even …

It’s certainly more powerful than last week, so how will they fare? Astral: I think both shows had a stronger episode this week than last. I’m not sure why, as Boueibu had …

Having entered their powered-up modes to deal with their Mahou Shoujo Ore enemy, our heroes turn their attention towards Boueibu Happy Kiss! But what awaits them this week is something that nobody really expected to come around... Astral: We’ve mentioned this a few times before but petty really is the name of the game in …

Spellbooks and Horoscopes: Boueibu Happy Kiss! Episode 5

Astral: Oh boy, i’m gonna be honest with you here. This was actually my least favorite episode of the show so far. It just felt like there was a lot of substance lacking from the story in the episode, lots of filler through meaningless dialogue and the extensive transformation scene. The enemy didn’t really hold …
