Mondaiji-tachi ga Isekai kara Kuru Sou Desu yo? Episode 2 – Thoughts and Analysis

Welcome back to another exciting review of another exciting episode of the same exciting show, which I will continue to call Problem Children because for some reason this anime in particular is incapable of having its name shortened.

There’s no real context for this screenshot within the blog.

Since last week was also a sort of introduction to the series as well as an analysis of the episode, I did the format a bit differently. But from now on, I’m going to write about specific events in the episode in chronological order, like a more typical analysis. That way, if you’re a really slow reader, you can watch the episode at the same time and stay just ahead of the spoilers.

Which spoilers, you might ask? The ones after the break.

Robotics;Notes and Steganography: Revealing Gunvarrel’s Subliminal Images

Finding images hidden within images… not as hard as hacking SERN.

In Episode 13 of Robotics;Notes, the most recent one, Frau Koujiro takes 19 random images found in the leaked final episode of Gunvarrel, and by manipulating those images, she manages to get 19 completely different images with hidden letters in them. Surely this is silly and unrealistic. Nope, it’s actually quite plausible.

Hop on, reader, and assume the role of Frau, as I teach you about the wonders of Steganography and have you reveal the subliminal images found in that clip yourself! (As long as you have PhotoShop or GIMP… otherwise you’ll have to take my word for it.)

AnoHana Review

AnoHana, or otherwise known as it’s long-ass name, Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai was produced by A-1 Pictures and was released from April 15, 2011 through June 24, 2011.

When I first watched this show, I was a pretty early anime fan. I’ve barely watched any Slice of Life, so I was used to giant robots bigger than the universe fighting each other or a Scottish version of the grim reaper in the middle of a fight between the government, colored gangs, and angsty teens. I watched ten episodes of it, and then put it on hold for about a year. Last weekend, though, I finally got to watching the last episode.

Mondaiji-tachi ga Isekai kara Kuru Sou Desu yo? Episode 1 – Initial Thoughts and Analysis

‘Sup everyone, I’m JesseRoo. A few of the other guys made blogs specifically to introduce themselves, but I figured I could just slap my introduction in front of the first blog I write. So that’s that.

Although I probably won’t be able to attain the same level of quality as TehVict’s Sasami-san@Ganbaranai analysis, I still felt like doing an analysis of at least one series this season. Unfortunately because I procrastinated too long my choice was rather limited if I wanted to start from the first episode. Luckily, though, one of the series which I was most interested in this season happened to start yesterday (relative to when this blog post will go up on the site). That series is none other than Mondaiji-tachi ga Isekai kara Kuru Sou Desu yo?,  or Problem Children Are Coming From Another World, Aren’t They?. For my sanity’s sake, I’ll be referring to it as simply Problem Children from now on.

Potential spoilers for the first episode after the break, so you might want to watch that first.
