Wind ~ A Breath of Heart 08 - Two Girls for Every Boy


After the shocking turn of events at the end of the previous episode of Wind ~ A Breath of Heart, our hero finds himself on a summer festival date with Minamo, highlighted by an enchanting encounter with the ever-enigmatic Hikari. I have to hope that in a city where everyone has special abilities, festival-goers can even the odds against those cheating carnival game operators.

My Wife is a High School Girl 08 - Baby, it's Cold Outside

This exciting and controversial episode of My Wife is a High School Girl actually features some plot continuity between its two halves, although that doesn't mean we'll be skipping the obligatory self-introduction monologue. But we also learn that all it takes to get a girl all hot and bothered is to ask if you can film her, apparently. Too bad Asami's classmate "Erosaki"'s notion of consent doesn't extend to keeping a girl at your house increasingly against her will, among other rather questionable acts. But it's okay, because you can still come out of the whole affair with her opinion of you being higher than it was before. And try as I might, I haven't been able to find scenes where the TV broadcast was more censored than this DVD version. But at least I managed to fix a fair number of glaring translation errors.

My Wife is a High School Girl 07 - Climate Crisis Arrives



In this summer-themed episode of My Wife is a High School Girl, the main couple and their neighbors attempt to combat the heat with binge eating, with mixed results. Later, enjoy a sports-day segment with plenty of bloomer shots to complement this show's trademark laydown-panchira imagery.

** v2 released to correct one "Liberal Overreach" line. I know a translator's (or editor's) not supposed to be a scriptwriter, but sometimes the temptation is just so strong. I throw myself upon the mercy of the court of 8thsin!

Wind ~ A Breath of Heart 06 - I know now why you cry


This latest outing of Wind ~ A Breath of Heart manages the feat of combining two mostly-distinct stories into one half-length episode, involving a shopping not-a-date and a movie sorta-date. Also of note: the use of Edvard Grieg's "Death of Ase" as the public-domain soundtrack for the movie, and the random tricks people in the park are doing with their town-given powers for the sake of amusement. Nice to have a "people with powers" series without any tournaments or "confrontations with random thugs in a restaurant" scenes.

My Wife is a High School Girl 06 - The Trouble with Travels


In this episode, Asami and Kyousuke try to get away from the city and all their prying friends, neighbors, co-workers, and family members for some alone time. Guess how many of these obstacles they don't encounter! But at least they have time for some unerotic asphyxiation play and reenacting a classic scene from Lady and the Tramp, albeit with an Asian twist on things.

Wind ~ A Breath of Heart 05 - Regally Blonde



This episode of Wind focuses on "doomed to be a side character" Nozomi as she battles her weak constitution to compete in the Obligatory Sports Festival, albeit one marred by rampant special-power-aided cheating. At least Kazune City is probably free of PED and HGH scandals. Meanwhile, Mysterious Girl Hikari is skipping out on athletics, but she is participating in strange and arcane miko rituals.
