> Alright everyone, two more videos were released on the Milky Holmes Website. This time, I actually took the time to subtitle the videos. I tried my best, but I was still unable to translate everything correctly. If I was unsure of a line, I added an asterisk to the end of it. Make sure that when you watch, the subtitles are on.
Lucu Lucu is a story about Rokumon, a young lad from Japan who suddenly runs into a crazy situation. When he wakes up one morning, he finds two demons in his house and his father’s lifeless body in another room! But not to fear, one of the demons is Lucuha, a demon princess, and she says she’s come to the human world to make the world a better place. She goes out of her way to clean parks, help out at school fairs, and cooks for Rokumon.
I never used to read manga all that much, but in the beginning of November, I suddenly got into manga. Lucu Lucu is the first Manga I’ve ever actually finished. Still, it took me about 15 days to finish all 90 chapters.
The reason I like Lucu Lucu so much is because of the characters. Rokumon is a normal middle school kid, but you can always expect to find him in a strange situation. Lumiel is an angel who has come down to earth to keep an eye on the demons. Rokumon’s friend from school who is super obsessed over Lucuha. And there are many more.
But my favorite character by far has got to be Lucuha. The way she was drawn is really refreshing and cool. You never see more than one of her eyes at any given time, and her loli loli body is a must see for any lolicons.
Overall, the art style is really simple, yet clean and it really appeals to me. It is mostly this reason that I’ll be looking up other works by Asari Yoshitoo, the author. There is really little plot throughout the manga except for some chapters every now and again that focus on Rokumon’s lost memories, and the ending can be considered sort of “out there.” About halfway through the series, the manga gets a bit repetitive and much more ecchi, but it never loses its charm.
My rating: 8.5 / 10
I really enjoyed this series and felt sad when I finished it. I’m going to have to find more works by Asari Yoshitoo to fill the hole.
I watched two episodes today, so I’ve decided to combine them into one post instead of dividing them. Also, this screen shot looks like it would make a nice wallpaper! 😀
The girls are enjoying a nice day at the park, eating grilled mushrooms, as always. Herc is almost killed by a truck. If not for the help from Mary and Kate, she probably would’ve been killed!
Mary and Kate turn out to be Phantom Thieves! Oh the irony! They are on the hunt to capture Kamaboko when they run into Twenty on a date with a dakimakura of himself.
Mary and Kate eventually do capture Kamaboko, after a a bit of opera singing and some chatting with the girls of Milky Holmes. When the girls realize Kamaboko is missing, they set out to search for him. Sheryl runs in to G4. The G4 team now calls themselves G3, so I’m guessing that they’ve accepted that Kokoro is gone. Recall the kidnapping scene at the end of episode 4.
Well, I guess I was wrong. Kokoro is safe and sound. G4’s name must change dynamically depending on how many people they have with them at any given moment. I really would’ve loved to have seen more on the subject of the kidnapping.
In this episode, a princess with an uncanny resemblance to Sheryl shows up and asks for Sheryl to switch places with her for a day.
Sheryl accepts when the princess offers to give anything in return; Sheryl asks for a dehumidifier! 😀
The man the princess is supposed to marry is a total hentai! Yay! But Sheryl actually seems to be having fun torturing this man. Also… That cat tail… :3
After some life changing moments, the princess acts up the courage to tell the hentai that she doesn’t want to marry him. The now not-hentai prince instead confesses that he is actually in love with the princess’ grandmother. The two get married right then and there.
According to THIS the OST to Panty and Stocking will be released on 12/29. It will feature the OP and ED as well as three other songs and the BGM of the show. I don’t know how long this info has been out but I just found out about it and am excited. December is looking to be a good month with this news and the release of The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya on bluray. Be sure to mark your calendars!
>Need some random shows to watch? Want to learn of some new shows you may have not heard of before? Well this list is for you then.
Before I start I should clarify this post a bit. WHen I say lesser known I mean shows that aren’t werent the biggest of its season/ aren’t still hyped up to this day. Obviously all anime shows are going to have some sort of following, but I am talking about the shows that aren’t the Haruhi’s or the K-on’s. These are all shows that I don’t ever hear a whole lot about and when talking to other anime fans they don’t have a clue about what I am talking about.

1. Kodomo no Omocha aka Kodocha
2. Super Gals! aka Gals!
3. Princess Tutu
4. Shadow Star Narutaru
5. Sakura Diaries
6. Yume de Aetara
8. Wind: A Breath of Heart
9. Lovedol: Lovely Idol
10. Cossette no Shouzou

20. Asagiri no Miko
Synopsis: If there’s one thing I love, it’s hearing English curse words in anime. Whenever I hear them, I’m overwhelmed with laughter for some reason. And Panty and Stocking has lots of English curse words, and every episode there seems to be more and more.
Hearing things like “faku” in this anime is has become pretty standard, but in this episode, they were particularly creative.
