I’ve just about had enough of your inability to speak proper bloody English. It is now taking every fibre of my self-control not to smash my screen with an Oxford Dictionary.

On an unrelated note, why would ever compare a Camel Spider to a Marlboro packet?

It’s not like we’re trying to win a Pulitzer with your diary or anything, but have you considered diversifying your vocabulary?

Week 6 Verdict:

This is the part of the show where they do what Mari Okada and the director Sato Takuya does best: weaving a web of despair around each character so it seems impossible for them to attain happiness. He did it well with Okabe in Steins;Gate, and he’s great with it in WIXOSS too. This episode definitely makes up for some of the weaker ones before, where they stumbled over card battles and pretending to be happy. I am now eager to see how they would continue with this.

    I can’t wait for your commentary on episode 7. So much gayness. Their gayness is showing. I now equate Selector identifying into gaydar. And battle into smut. Yeah. Iona is definitely gay. So is Ru and everyone else.
