So, this show was surprisingly interesting. Basic idea is that the main character, Hazuki Ryuusuke, is in love with a girl, Shimao Rokka, who is still not over her dead husband. Turns out her husband, Shimao Atsushi, is a ghost that only Hazuki can see and hear. It was nice…Hazuki sorta confesses to the girl and issues a direct challenge to Atsushi (kinda like “what are you gonna do about it?”). Not what you’d typically expect from a male lead in a romance (especially a whacked out love triangle like this).Opening sounded great to me…ending not as good, but not bad. They both seem like songs that would fit this sort of thing. There’s a lot of stuff this show can do…I’m curious what it will choose. For example, they can have Atsushi remain exclusively visible to Hazuki or he could show up to some of the other characters around the shop (though not to Rokka, of course). Not sure if I’ll cover the show, but I’m interested enough to keep watching.

Hah…sword that steals divinity and a tablet that steals a god’s weapon. Three guesses where that’s going. So apparently our main character Kusanagi Godou is going to become a God Slayer. The guy basically has the power of a God…sounds great, right? I imagine this show will go into how much that sucks. Based on my understanding of the synopsis, he’s gonna be followed around by a parade of women? Of course he is…
Suppose I have to wait until next week to hear opening and ending…oh well. They’re not being sung by artists I know, so we’ll see. Not sure what to make of this show…doesn’t exactly look all that promising. I mean, I enjoy a good god-slaying as much as the next guy (oh God of War…good times), but I dunno if this will just degenerate into episodic battles where the guy discovers his powers. Just have to see, I guess.
I’d say it’s possible this god that Godou defeats becomes a recurring villain of sorts…based on my understanding, the sword should just steal his powers. I’m sure he won’t be happy about that, so he’ll try to get them back. Plus, his character design doesn’t exactly scream “disposable character.”
