    This is Meiro-machi (Labyrinth Town), the town of fortune-telling. In town, there is a fortune-telling shop called Urara, where girls aspiring to be fortune-tellers come from all over the country. Chiya, who was raised in the mountains, comes to the town with a purpose, but what is it exactly? There, she meets Kon who is always serious, Koume who loves all things western, and the shy Nono. Their fun days of living together as apprentice fortune-tellers are about to begin.

    Episode 1

    Here's some fortune for the belly.

    Those girls are a really colorful bunch there as they sure do love to mess around. Chiya just loves to go around exposing bellies left and right, while Saku is not exactly pleased about everything that went down. Kon is really cute, especially when she gets embarrassed like the time when the girls were feeling out her ears. Then there's Koume who is into Western stuff, and Nono who is really shy. So far, it's off to a decent start as while the girls are eye candy and the humor is solid, I have a feeling that it's just going to be repetitive, and the belly stuff is already getting old.

    So with that, I'll stick around for awhile, but that could change if the show ends up being exclusive to TAN as at the moment, there's no news as to whether or not it's coming to other places.

      Re: Episode 1

      It's hard to want Sentai to get more simulcasts when they make them exclusive to TAN. Fortunately, I don't have to get a subscription yet, since this isn't something I'll be watching any more of. It does look nicer than I was expecting, but otherwise there's not much to it, just cute girls and an annoying excuse to take some of their clothes off on a regular basis.

        Re: Episode 1

        This was too cute and hilarious. Chiyo to is something lol. All that belly button... All these girls are quite fun in many ways. Chiya especially with her randomness. Kon was a fox girl lol. Turns out that's a ribbon and she has no tail (thanks Chiya). The comedy was pretty spot on mostly. I just got my seasonal dose of cute girls.

          funny how Koume looks like a cross between Rize Tedeza and Hinata Kuraue.

          hah, that ventriloquist bit. :D I had a feeling it'd end up that way, but the way it was executed was pretty hilarious.

            Episode 2

            Aiming for the top.

            The urara ranking system is explained as Chiya will have to earn her way to the top if she wants to see her mother that she believes is in the top rank area of the town, and with the way the town is structured, she can only access the 10th rank area at the moment. So Chiya is determined to get to the top, but things don't go so well right out of the gate with the burning lantern fortune telling. Chiya's hair caught on fire, and everything went by the wayside. Those girls sure have a long road ahead of them, but at least they aren't letting that get them down.

            So seeing that another subscription is required to watch this show that I probably won't be sticking with this show for the long haul.

              Re: Episode 2

              This show is just too cute. Chiya wants to find her mother but knows absolutely nothing about her. Lol when Kon said that Chiya probably wants to find her by sniffing or some and Chiya says that that's impossible. They played the belly joke differently here as Chiya has stopped doing that and Koume was doing it for her when she was apologizing. I think they'll give that joke a break for now. The doll was super creepy lol. There was that touching moment when Chiya said that she doesn't care if she gets expelled from the city because she only came here for her mother in the first place.

              This show is looking to be better than last season's cute show. Chiya and Kon are just too kawaii. The comedy is pretty spot on too and there are some touching moments too.

                Well, that was a huge helping a sugar...and midriffs! Chiya is lots of fun, with a weird outfit to match. Also, cop-chan's two subordinates are lots of fun, obviously in love with their boss. One of my must watchs of the season (along with Demi-chan and Maid Dragon).

                    Episode 3

                    A girl's hair is her life.

                    While seeing those girls working part-time at Benten's shop is great, especially since Kon is wearing all sorts of different outfits, unfortunately it puts their careers as fortune tellers in jeopardy as they can't afford to take a year off training after breaking that crystal ball, so Chiya decides to bet it against the legendary gambler Benten, who was going to let her win anyway. Then there's something about Chiya's hair and as it turns out it actually consists of a bunch of snakes as it gets stuck in Koume's shirt. So they had to take a bath together to get it unsnagged and thus, a rivalry is born. Pretty amusing to see those girls doing crazy things.

                    So with that, I think this will be it for the time being as I'm not up for getting another subscription at this time to keep on watching this. But in any case, this show has been enjoyable, just not enough to keep it on this season's watchlist.

                      Re: Episode 3

                      The girls go on an errand to the biggest divination stuff shop in the city and in their excitement over all the new things there, they break a crystal ball and have to pay for it with their bodies. Lol when they pushed Chiya forward with an open belly. Lol when the shop owner had Kon wear all the different outfits. Also, ponytail Chiya is too kawaii.

                      Chiya gets her hair stuck in Koume's buttons. Koume doesn't want to ruin her dress and Chiya is traumatized so she can't cut her hair. It's good in a way since this way her hair will stay long like it should. Lol the two tried to do everything together but were failing. Koume wanting to know more about Chiya was nice. Chiya got some verbal confirmation that these girls are her friends and opening up to them wouldn't be a problem. Lol when Chiya's reason for not cutting her hair turned out be nothing deep or serious or anything.

                          Chiya likes her tummys! Also, I thought black cats were good luck in Japanese culture?

                            The girls are tasty enough for Chiya to lick. I wonder what show will end being more yuri, this or Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid?

                              Episode 6

                              "Special friends" is the new code word for lesbians. And the girls conjure a fox spirit using a Ouja board--I mean kokkuri. And we get a kiss, okay, a forehead kiss. So I guess Chiya x Kon is canon now?
