Ultra Maniac 1 and Last Exile 8
After the 'more', notes on the first episode of Ultra Maniac, and episode 8 of Last Exile.
Ultra Maniac - Episode 1
Very light shoujo show about a high school girl named Nina who is a magician that isn't very good at magic and her best friend. The first episode was kind of fun, but I'm not sure that I'll watch more. It was your typical, girl casts spell that causes trouble and then casts another spell to fix trouble that causes more trouble kind of story. I will probably end up watching one or two more episodes, just to see if it gets any better.
Last Exile - Episode 8
A bit of an interlude after the action of the last few episodes. The ship is in for repairs and the crew unwinds with some gambling and a bit of a bar brawl. Not much of the overall story get's pushed along here (except for a bit of a cryptic conversation the captain of the Sylvania has). I'm still digging this show a lot. Oh yeah, and this episode had Chocobo races!
