Wind ~ A Breath of Heart 03 - To Kill or Save the Animals

I'm sure it seems strange to see a landline being used in 2016, but that just goes with the territory of working with series from 2004. For Makoto, integrating his childhood friend into his social circle leads to a whirlwind tour of shopping and parties, but not before he meets an independent businesswoman with a quiet demeanor and an odd view of morality.

My Wife is a High School Girl 03 - Double Deception

I wanted to title this post some variant of "[Feline] on Display," but figured Blogger has software to flag that kind of thing, even with censor asterisks or substituted characters. Anyway, this episode of My Wife is a High School Girl features yet another teacher living a secret life, and an amorously willing new neighbor who isn't quite what she seems, whether at home or on the job.

Wind ~ A Breath of Heart 02 - Singlular Fist Strike Male

In this perhaps-long-awaited episode of Wind, our male lead re-connects with his childhood friend, much to the jealous consternation of the non-bald individual above. Then, they find out that parental absences may have more than mere story convenience behind them. One technical observation I've made of this series: there's a tradeoff between having more dynamic camera angles and rotations than a typical school romance series would have, but at the expense having of some noticeable and low-detail CG in use.
