7 deadly sins of cuteness

A new title caught my eye on Netflix last night, a 'Netflix exclusive' anime called 'The Seven Deadly Sins.'

I watched an episode to see if I'd like it, and 5 episodes later I concluded I clearly did.

I have a low tolerance for fan-service in anime, which has grown as I have gotten older. (I see you laughing, you know who you are, hush!). So far I'm enjoying the characters and the story, it's not terribly unique but it's also not cookie-cutter, it's like a slightly unusually shaped cookie cutter.

What the...did I just read? The paranoid.

Well...That was an interesting read, nothing like the first two books.

Even now I'm not entirely sure what I just read.

From what I gather, a trodden-on woman with a chip on her shoulder gave herself magic powers so she could order other people around. Apparently life was hard for this brilliant and beautiful woman.

You'd think I would sympathize with her regarding working in a male-dominated field, but I really couldn't.

This story disturbed me a bit and reinforced how a person's perspective shapes their entire reality.

C4-C5A Hammer time?

There was alot of punning in these chapters. I gotta say I didnt understand most of them, the word game made no sense to me (maybe that was the point?)

I enjoyed the introduction of "Colt', he was a long-"winded" character. It was hard not to giggle at his affliction.

I found the in depth description about the sanitary conditions and health of the various harems to be really interesting. Probably mostly accurate as well, disease !=repeat business.

C3A Turning Japanese?

This chapter made my head spin a bit, there was alot going on!

We learned more about Maureen and her 'army brat' past. I loved how Lady Sally figured out she could speak Japanese, I was very confused about why she was saying anything in Japanese.

The pun Maureen made by responding to the Japanese speech with "High" just hit me now..."Hai" is yes in Japanese. I like little jokes like that, makes me chuckle.

C2A Not even Self contempt.

This chapter give some more insight into the main character. I had no idea she was so young, I was imagining a woman in her 30's! Also gives some more insight into her background, her daddy issues and issues with love.

I loved the tour Maureen took of the House, it was very thrilling to imagine. Very inner-eye visually appealing.

Lady Sally sounds like a proper lady, she can be kind and gentle but can also kick your butt on a moments notice. I'd love to know her story.

C1A The man in the buttcheek apron

We started reading Callahan's lady tonight and I gotta say the first chapter just whet my appetite for the book. I had a hard time putting it down.

It was really action-filled and quite humorous. I got a kick out of the 'were-beagle' and laughed quite thoroughly at the balding man in the apron and harness.

One of my favourite lines from the chapter was from that same character, he said '.....please don't tell Mistress Cynthia please don't or she *won't* punish me tonight!' It made me giggle profusely.
