Dog Days 6-7

(Not MetaFap but MetaFap) Every cat has her day (click pic for stitch)

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Welcome back to the cuddly vibes that are Flonyard. Let’s settle into to a few typical days with our animal friends.

Mo Demons Mo Slime

Dog Days 5-1

Rico is keeping her eye out for dangerous things…

Well in all honesty, episode 5 was a repeat of the lather and rinse that was episode 4.  Even with some innocent magic crystal gathering, everyday musings of life, and assorted antics we got fuzzy demon shenanigans causing more than it’s fair share of trouble and naughty mischief. But despite that we do get a bit of a new wrinkle on the larger worlds developments. In the first big arc we dealt with big dragons, and in this story we shrink it down and look into a smaller world. The characters have made claims that all the sports combat they’ve been doing is in preparation for the real deal. It looks like they need to start focusing on that, as these demon possessions are popping up way to much….

We’re sorry, you’re princess is in a frog

But such is par for the course in the days of our Heroes and the Noble ranks. I still wonder, just like with the Big Prestige Showpiece Battles, why the characters are so taken aback by or with clothing damage and/or slime attacks. It’s like paying taxes, it’s inevitable, and it happens everywhere they go. But no matter, soon after the big battle is engaged, the Heroes save the day in their own remarkable ways. Then it’s time for…

The inevitable embarrassing onsen….You can start hating on Cnque any time you want….

Seems the kid is a lightweight in a few departments. But anime is rather specialized in showing these sorts of characters just naturally radiating lady-killer waves, especially when they don’t realize it.

A Decent Proposal

Dog Days 6-6

Where defeat equals betrothal…

You have to admire that Lady Leon, she is so much the warrior that she won’t even allow a group of arranged marriage encouters pass without having to beat the fluffy out of her suitors. It makes one wonder exactly what type of fellow would even come close. He couldn’t be a brute, being just a few steps away from the throne, nor could he be a schemer or trickster cause that would be just as bad as a clod. So why not go in a new direction? Leaf is a pretty neat addition to the cast, as we can only wonder about how much trap is going into that shouta. Besides, in the aftermath it looks like he came closer than anyone else ever has.

He’s grown up since Big Tat saw him last…

But how much has he changed?

But the funniest bit was held off to the last scene. It seems that Leaf was so concerned about hiding his identity that he forgot the reason everyone gathered in the first place. He only really wanted to the opportunity to talk to the lady he admires, and didn’t know about the birds and bees with these cats. But he can rest assured that he isn’t going to go out of the story any time soon, that is for sure, he’s been deemed to darn cute, after all.

Well, you cannot say that Dog Days is going to be the most controversial show you watch all week, but it does a great job with it’s mission statement. Good, solid, fun entertainment. It never takes itself too seriously, and that is a great key to success in this type of storytelling. They do continue to build up some of the story, as Leon’s musing at the end of the episode may have her thinking back on her near defeat, and what that might mean for her status as a biggest warrior around. It’s not every day someone “disarms” her like that. So with that in mind, who would you want to defeat in battle and take the hand of?

    Someone taught me: Kuri to Risu.

    Speaking of Metafap, will there be any entries this season?
    I thought shows like Testament would be getting attention on Metanorn by now.

    • BlackBriar says:

      I believe everyone’s either too booked with other animes or not that into Testament to give the show weekly coverage.

      • Di Gi Kazune says:

        It was proposed that we do a Fantanorn (could also double as metafap given that it covers that genre as well) but that would probably kill the reviewers before March. We wouldn’t want that happening, do we?

        • BlackBriar says:

          Hence the possibility that they may all be booked. A lot of animes have been taken on this season. Some done by Tag Teams.

    Ah… Now I remember who that surprised face reminds me of…

    For a rabbit, that Prince sure can fight!!

    First picture fukken saved.

    All them sound effects from Yukikaze. They know what her main attraction is besides the -degozaru.
    That demon doesn’t seem to be an isolated case but where this will go is the question. Obligatory hating on Cinque with that onsen part. And I really thought the small princess would turn bigger and offer to wash Cinque’s back as thanks. Would have added more to the shenanigans.
    Also, no stitches of the girls in slime in the last episode? There were two great shots there

    Leon’s tournament seems pretty appropriate given the day it aired. She’s happy to be single but willing to get married if someone is strong enough to beat her. New character was so close to beating her. Though given the excellent service we got afterwards, he and everyone else(including us) are the winners.

    • skylion says:

      Interesting to note that during the first season, when Leon was “disarmed” she was frankly, OK with it. Now, she isn’t? Or did I miss something?

      • belatkuro says:

        I’m guessing she was surprised that she took damage to this extent against him. Who would expect that her clothes would have a delay before it all got destroyed. That delayed reaction is always a tricky thing.

        • skylion says:

          …the show does interesting things with “expectations” vis a vis clothing damage. It’s never when you expect it. But, I guess it beats going around paranoid all the time.
