My Wife is a High School Girl 09 - Iwasaki v. Onohara

Love squares rule the day in the first half of this episode, as Iwasaki-sensei attempts to help her brother get his 20 minutes of action with Asami while conveniently clearing away an obstacle that she suspects lies between her and Ichimaru-sensei. Later, in Part B, enjoy some lolarious misadventures in the classic mold of "husband bewildered by domestic work." But given the state of gender relations in Japan, I guess we shouldn't be surprised to see this kind of "straight out of the 1950s" material.

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.
