Alex is not enjoying Girl’s High. The show (which I’ve never seen) is full of panty shots and heavy on the fan service. People who are into that sort of thing should be warned that all of this comes at a price: You have to endure the show itself to see it all. This is apparently much harder than it sounds.
I would feel bad for him, but his writeup is so amusing and fun to read that I find myself hoping the next one is even worse. The show is rampant with fan service, and yet seems to have a “people who like this sort of thing are degenerates” subtext going. Not a winning formula.
As an aside: I really, really hate the nosebleed “joke”. In Anime, often there will be a character who’s wound a bit too tight who ends up seeing something exciting (like a teenage alien robot cat girl from the future in her leather & titanium underwear, or whatever) and his pulse rises so much that he gets a nosebleed. It was never funny, and 4,000 iterations and variations of the joke made it even less so. Wow! A cartoon girl with a huge bosom! Now an image of a man with blood and mucus jetting from his face! Now more boobies again!
After the blood and fainting the audience is pretty much done looking at girls in their underwear for a while.
Animator A: “I’ve got it! When he sees the pretty girl he gets so excited that a chestbuster alien launches from his chest, covering his friends in entrails!”
Animator B: “So sexy!”
Fixing Match 3
For one of the most popular casual games in existence, Match 3 is actually really broken. Until one developer fixed it.

Ever wondered what's in all those quest boxes you've never bothered to read? Get ready: They're more insane than you might expect.
The Plot-Driven Door
You know how videogames sometimes do that thing where it's preposterously hard to go through a simple door? This one is really bad.
