At long last, Slow Art Online is ready for the moment that we've all been waiting for. It's finally time to see how A-1 handles the first fight that features you know who. In all seriousness, is this really the thing that we were looking forward to? Either way, if this battle contributes towards the show's progression, then our patience shall be rewarded.

Annotated Anime: Hanayamata episodes 4-5
by Jeff Chuang

If you survived the initial three episodes, Hanayamata goes straight for the jugular using its array of fantastic visuals and adorable middle schoolers talking about adorable things. Things like hopes, aspirations, and what it means to go out on a limb and accomplish something as a team of friends are at the heart, and Hanayamata, like Hana's gaijin antics, shows it off, bears it all, whatever.

The plot thickens and the cast gets larger as we get to know the minds behind the Vers Empire. While the latest episode serves as a brief respite from the tireless slaughter being dished out by Martians, things seem to be turning for the worse.
