Episode 7 So Bi-taro is staying in Japan, Ririka has popped off back to New York and Shoutaro is now having a mini crisis about whether he did the right thing. If I was Wakaba I'd just have left him and gone to my engagement party. Did she honestly forget about it? Or maybe she deliberately ignored ...

Fansub wiki spam filter

I tried to change the fansub wiki to add in the English subs for Kurumi no Heya. However when I submitted the changes I got this message: Spam protection filter The page you wanted to save was blocked by the spam filter. This is probably caused by a link to a blacklisted external site. The following...

Episode 7! I loved the pagoda! I have two favourite floors. 1) The first floor with the Nobita glasses and 'Jaitan's' terrible singing. 2) The third floor, firstly for the way Merebu was acting and then Yoshihiko having to drag all the coffins around was hilarious! And having to pay to revive everyb...

Episodes 1-3 I didn't really like them that much because the whole hostage case seemed to be handled poorly. After watching episode three it seems they're basically there to set up the rest of series so it's not so bad now. I felt a bit worried when I saw that Shirota was in it. So far I've only see...

The currently airing NHK BS period drama, starring actress Nakama Yukie in the lead role, will become a 3D film. It is planned to be released next January. Using the latest in CGI techno...

There are 4-5 episodes left, I think, and why did Wakaba have to be a lawyer? Now that Mom has returned out of the blue, she will want to take Bitaro back with her to NY. Pill Bug will go running (sadly) to Wakaba asking for legal advice and help. Wakaba will understand that losing or having family...

Episode 6 After Shouta said he lost his parents I can see why he wants to spend so much time with Bi-taro. I'm looking forward to seeing how Bi-taro feel about his mother. It's all very well Wakaba realising she likes Shouta but things are a lot more complex as Shouta is bringing up a child as well.

Once again this week's episode was hilarious! The enemies this time round were FUNNY! The guy comforting the baby and Double Unko Man!

And the song! Oh it was so perfect!
