2012 Anime of the Year Awards and Top 10

This was the thinking pose the various members of The Cart Driver had to adopt while considering their nominations. 2012 was a fairly unremarkable year for anime. Nothing really shook the industry, unless you count terrible light novel adaptations with ridiculous titles as ‘shaking the industry’. It wasn’t a particularly bad year either, which would […]

Scamp’s top 10 anime of 2012

2012 was a year in which anime was made. Some of them were really good. Most of them were not. After doing this yearly roundup thing for the past few years, I’m starting to realise that every year is pretty much equal quality-wise. When you have 100+ anime released every year, everything starts to balance […]

Hello, friends, Romans, countrymen! I am here to bring you the second of The Cart Driver’s triad of top 10 anime lists for the year 2012! For the purposes of our collective 2012 list, Scamp required that we limit our choices to TV anime, but we have no such limitations here! However, I must admit […]

12 Days of Anime #2: And the Beat Goes On …

Depending on the day you ask me, I might say Shrade is my favorite character in Aquarion EVOL.

Most of all, though, I love how […]

12 Days of Anime #2: Andy and Mix

I could have made my entire 12 days of moments from Aquarion EVOL. The scene where Andy yells about filling holes to Mix. That sudden realisation that Kagura was talking in reverse. Shrade joining in the strip fest as he’s overcome with the emotion emanating from the giant robots. The final episode and Aquarion LOVE. But you […]

Shinmaru’s Top 30 Anime

The more anime you watch, the tougher it is to make a top 30 list. I have found this out the hard way. I could do this in my sleep before; now, I wonder how could have ever compared some of these anime to each other. The exercise seems utterly insane now. And, yet, here […]

The Top 30 Anime

After over 4 hours of heated debate, all three of the writers on this site have finally managed to agree upon the anime we consider to be the best. The idea was that, if we’re going to have such a prominent link to our top 30, it should be one that represents all our tastes. […]

Aquarion EVOL – Love Forward, Backward and Everywhere

Before I get into this post, I want to point out that I updated my terribad list a couple of days ago. It’s a list of 60+ shows of anime of dubious quality, many of which are quite fun to watch. This is the first update I’ve done since migrating to The Cart Driver, and […]
