"I work alone"

Oh poor Akko, getting trapped into a cage like a bird although I will say that she is clever at escaping by transforming into a rat. Not sure how I feel about that mute girl. She seems more like a brat.

Looks like the monster this week took on a much bigger size.
Pretty chaotic episode. I was not expecting some mecha action as well.

So a mecha saved the day, Japan and it's obsessions.
Well Ako being helpful was interesting to watch even if it created a lot of trouble at first she turned out the be very useful/
I like the ship way more the the robot it was much more appealing.

Not only TTGL but the Brave Series as well, most notably Brave Express Might Gaine.


Sasuga Amemiya and Imaishi.
Get Mr. Masami Obari or Mr. Masahiro Yamane on board, if they decide to do another mecha series.

It was a fine episode, Constanze is such a cutie, I don't blame Akko for wanting to hug her all day. She is so precious.

And we had some mecha references, it was a enjoyable episode. I just wished we would finally hear Constanze talk, maybe saving that for the last episode.

So confirmed Constanze is mute? This episode had a lot of funny moments for sure.

Why can't chariot just dropkick croix off the cliff? Kinda bothers me how she's just waiting for stuff to happen.

Mirai Nikki is TRASH
Angel Beats is horrible.
Charlotte is a dumpster fire.
Shinsekai Yori has no characters.
Oreimo's S2 specials don't actually exist.


I live to see the day where Hidamari Sketch or Little Witch Academia get another season.

The moment the monster grabed the mech's face reminded me a lot of Evangelion too, either Sachiel's fight or the Eva series fight (maybe both)

Loved the episode for the all the aforementioned reasons. Though, again, I have to wonder if it's okay for Chariot to give out all the secrets of the magical world in her cards... (^.^;)

What an awesome episode. With some perseverance, Akko managed to work with Constanze. It was epic when the airship transformed into a mecha. The smile Constanze made at the end was cute.

Might sound weird but Constanze reminds me of Mikazuki (from Gundam). Man, I really want a full mecha-themed anime by Trigger.

Good God, if I could rate episodes this would be a 10/10. The nostalgia was strong in this one and the feels wouldn't stop flowing, it was too f*cking awesome.

Remember when a show about little witches revived the mecha genre?

Awesome episode, my favorite so far. I love every moment of it. I didn't really know how to feel about Constanze before since we hadn't really seen much about her, but this episode convinced me, I love her. She's so cute and determined! She didn't talk at the end but she smiled adorably, which is just as good if you ask me.

Fun & exciting episode.
Nice to see the focus on Constanze. She is so cool with all her creations & secret base.

Love the Ship transforming into a Mecha. Great Gurren Lagann reference.

Adorable Constanze smile at the end.

Loved this episode.

I think these slice-of-life episodes where it's just Akko's antics and her friends is where this show shines brilliantly. I would have been happy without the Grand Triskellion and Croix vs Chariot plot lines. However, beggers can't be choosers. This show is still amazing.


18 episodes in and 7 episodes left.....when will Diana ever get an episode?

Having said that I am a total sucker for Gurren Lagann and Neon Genesis, as well as the magical parade movie of LWA, so this episode made me pretty damn happy.
I also thought it was better that the show didnt focus on finding the words. The best feelings from the show have come when Akko stumbled on the words when the situation required it, not when she actively went looking for them as in the past two or so eps. so im glad we got a break from that.
Constanze is cool. I want/need more Diana, and Ursula though. its been too long without much from them.

Last seen a few episodes ago wearing a blue hat.
If you see him, call Trigger. If you know where he is, please call our tips number. He's a highly researched individual. He knows we're looking for him. Don't confront him or he might flee.

And the pieces are slowly moving to their rightful places. That leaves us Jasminka,Andrew? if they will still even do another episode just for him.and ofcourse, the main dish, Diana. And then we'll go to the climax or maybe start with Diana,mix her in, then slowly make it's way to the very climax.. If they go through that pattern, i dont mind. :) Still loving how this show seem very western! This is perfect to watch when i want to take a breather from other anime..
Episode 18 5/5 will watch again for Constanze!

Amanda episode last week, Constanze episode this week, Diana episode next week. Looks like they are making sure we get to see all the side characters get their own episode before we reach the final part of the plot.

Oh and my favourite shot from this episode.

I don't think she is mute because she makes reaction noises. Maybe she simply chooses not to speak or I dunno...maybe she's been cursed or something.

It's not Akko if she didn't "messed up" easily like that, right? But seriously, maybe Constanze try considering about using Akko as her lab rat the moment she get into that cage.But wait, it's a mechanical and not biological experiment. LOL
But well, it's just about Constanze giving Akko another chance to help and become her lab partner.

Well, looks like the posts are all over the place again, AND I'M BACK!

Well, looks like Akko got into someone's nerve again and this time it's.....CONSTANZE!?!?!
NO, NEVER disturb the mute queen of the machine!

All joking aside, this episode was pretty good. We finally delve into Constanze's life. Apparently, her parents work involved boats and...Pfft! That face (Sour face of all sour faces). Not only that, she has a FREAKING LAB! UNDER HER DORM! Where does the space come from? Nitpicking aside, her lab is amazing, complete with robot drones and tools for everyday needs. It was nice to see Akko and Constanze finally warm up to each other and build their battleship/mecha (Gurren Lagaan/ Kill la Kill/ Space Patrol Luluco vibes anyone? wait, just me?!?! #@$%!!) Though I did see posts of the plot being missing, I disagree though. This is where we bring up Prof. Croix in this episode. She invited tourists to Blightonbury, possibly to sabotage the hunt and give a magic a bad name (Remember, she was researching magic generated from wrath in an earlier episode) and she even summoned a Crow Demon-mech-thingy, because nothing can stop other than a mech..OH WAIT! Of course, you know the drill, Akko and Constanze activates the Gurre- I MEAN, the Metamor-formation(?) and saved the day. But that fail though, who would've guessed that the mech would lose energy from transforming alone.
And then there's the ending, Akko gets a flying(?) broom, and Constanze...

.......Guys, I think someone around the world got cured from cancer and someone else entirely got diabetes.
ONWARDS! Away from homework and on to more anime!!!

Okay we finally get a Constanze episode though she still has yet to say anything, maybe in the last episode. Cuteness overload with this episode, Constanze is just too adorable, I don't blame Akko for wanting to hug her, she is so adorable. I know she is just short and probably the same age as everyone, but she is like the little sister of the show.

So Little Witch Academia does its own take on Pokemon Go, this ghost hunter this is Pokemon Go to me. And Croax gave Constanze a ghost hunting license, she is not completely bad. Akko tries to help and breaks Constanze robot, and feels so guilty she wants to help.

Yeah Akko is a little pushy and this behavior is very much like in Enchanted Parade when Akko was at her worst, not taking people's feelings into consideration, thinking you know best, ironicly that is the part about Diana's character that gets on Akko's nerve the most, Akko she is the same when it comes to thinking she knows best just in a different way. But is comes from a good place, I forgive her. I also think Akko thinks Constanze is lonely and isolated and wants to be her friend.

Constanze writing "I work alone", so Constanze is Batman confirmed.

I love the sounds effects when Constanze was inspired by Akko and came up with an idea for the ship design. And the ship was awesome, and we had mecha in Little Witch Academia, what more can yo ask.

And this episodes convinces me more that Croax is a ends justify the means person, I don't think her end goal is evil. Would be helpful just told us her goal instead of playing games, but the show doesn't want us to know. I am on "Team Croax goal is not evil, things are more complex than even Ursula realizes". That is a long team name.

And it is nice that Constanze gave Akko a broom she can fly with slowly, Akko continues to gain allies, it is going to come in handy some day.

I had a lot of fun with this episode but at the same time, i think the first half of this episode is that one moment in this series i hated Akko the most.

I love Amanda, Constanze and Jasminka and I'm glad the show gave some focus to them before the final battle. These three remind me of the three witches from The School for Good and Evil book series.

So we got an Amanda episode last week, Constanze episode this week.
So does this mean that next week will be Jasminka's turn?
