You know, part of the difficulty of making talkback threads for a show you're watching for the first time is figuring out how to describe the plot of an episode you haven't seen when the description you get off DirecTV Stream doesn't give you much to go on, and you'd rather not look it up on Wikipedia because you don't want to be spoiled.

At least when I did Paranoia Agent last year, I'd already seen it in advance. Did you know I wrote all of those episode descriptions myself? It's true—they were based off of ones I'd written for a long-buried Wiki page somewhere on this site. I didn't think they were still up, so I recreated them from memory.

As for tonight's episode, I believe that Konton will devise a plan to destroy the Half-Demon Princesses, Riku will offer to help him, and the three girls will at some point be lured into a ravine somewhere.

Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon
Episode 17
"Trap of the Two Perils"

Konton devises a plan to destroy the Half-Demon Princesses; Riku offers to help him, and the three girls are lured into a ravine.

I also believe you will all refrain from posting spoilers.

Previously on Yashahime: Bummer end to a student-master relationship.

Last time: Even in feudal Japan, student debt will be the death of you.

Stay off my transmutation circle!

Is he wearing eyeliner?

Not Mount Musubi, but Mount Almost-subi.

Riku's the true villain of this show, isn't he?

She's a regular Itzhak Perlman. And not just because she has a pearl in her eye.

Is Setsuna trying to lure the Tree of Ages out like in Young Frankenstein?

"Umm, guys, I'm practicing here?"

Definitely not a trap.

I'm not even hungry, I'm such a fatty.

I think this show would have been perfect for weekday/Saturday night Toonami and would have gotten by with minimal edits, one of them being Moroha's s-bomb.

"I want you to cut me. Because I'm emo and too scared to cut myself."

I mean, you could've just tried pinching yourself.

"What's your plan? Are the two of us splitting up?"
With another season on the way?

...she's not coming back, is she?

And she gets thrown back down again.

I spent HOURS painting that circle!

Good news: Setsuna and Towa have escaped and are going to give Konton what for. Bad news: Moroha is still trapped and in trouble, and now she has yet another reason to hate Konton. I really hope she and her sisters give him what he deserves.

I thought that this episode was pretty good. Towa still being set on finding the Dream Butterfly while Setsuna is rather indifferent towards it feels kind of weird for this point of the series. I didn't really mind that for awhile when they needed to get used to the new status quo, explore the new setting and characters, but I thought that they would have made more progress on it by now. If the episodes weren't as enjoyable as they are and the chemistry within the main trio wasn't solid, I think that this would be a bigger problem.

Similarly, Towa giving away Moroha's position when that demon was about to eat a monk also feels a bit off for this point of the series. She obviously wouldn't have the kind of skills that Setsuna and Moroha have given that they've grown up in this era, but Towa has been in plenty of battles by this point. It just felt a tad too late to make Towa into this inexperienced fighter who doesn't have her guard up or enough battle instincts when we're over halfway through the season by now.

Riku was quite suspicious with his role in this plot, which makes me wonder what his actual goal is. Splitting up the girls put them in more of a disadvantage too. Setsuna stabbing herself to see if she'd wake up was rather reckless, but Towa was able to smell her blood, so it did kind of work out. It was pretty cool to see Towa and Setsuna break out of the illusion and face off against Konton. Overall, it was a pretty good episode.

I can see predictions of Nickelodeon Making the next Sonic Cartoon after Sonic Prime, Mainly Because they mentioned Sonic the Hedgehog on today's Broadcast of the Dallas-49ers Wild Card Game on Nickelodeon

And the Sonic Movie 2 TV spot.

Talk about going the extra mile.
One thing I like about Amazon and Netflix original films is that they’re greenlighting or picking up movies that are riskier,niche,or alternative then most major studio films in the last 5 years or so.

Sure they’re not all winners but at least you can tell they give writers and directors more freedom with their projects
today marks the first anniversary of when tvguide.com had rebranded their website.
