This is what tethysdust said this week:
Quote:
Not much stood out to me this week. I suppose my favorite would be Iwasetemitee Monda. It was a cute romantic comedy. Sayuri Ichigou was kind of neat if you want a love-triangle type romance (between the main character, his childhood friend, and the dream girl look-alike).
Here's a note from vyc:
Quote:
Mostly romantic comedy series for the ones I did this week. Manekoi - a high school romantic comedy with a little twist to it. The storyline is great to follow and the unexpected twists in the plot keeps it really fresh. Uhha Harem Gakuseiryo - a little ecchi series about college students male and female living under the same roof, seeing each other naked on a constant basis. Enough said.
My opinion:
Not much interested me although I'd be willing to check out Iwasetemitee Monda since it's interesting to see a girl otaku deal with a real life boyfriend. Manekoi sounds a little funny. I have no idea how a talking cat can help with romance though.



Translated items that need some love/scanlation:
sonsofloki - Young Shima Kousaku: Chapter 1
el_maltese_burger - Countach: Chapter 1 | Chatper 2
