suisei_no_gargantia-05-amy-ledo-squirrel-surf_kite-bikini-boobs-scenery-water-trees-happy-fun-flyingThis week: why the beach episode of Suisei no Gargantia is entirely appropriate and meaningful, what we can infer about the settings in Hataraku Maou-sama! and how they will dictate the story from here onward, why I have been impressed with how Devil Survivor 2 handles its extensive cast, and the main reason why we return to Kakumeiki Valvrave every week.
