Bakuman season 2 episode 1

Oh no, not again. There’s something a little bit worrying about the fact that the first episode of the Bakuman sequel has been my favourite episode of the season so far. Come on the rest of you new anime, you can’t allow yourself to be beaten by bloody Bakuman.

Fall 2011 Anime Season Preview

This upcoming anime season sucks compared to my ridiculously high standards.

You know, a few shelves get knocked over, a couple of jam sandwiches fall off tables, that sort of thing. Yet they were back […]

Bakuman episode 22

I was delighted to see Nizuma come back into the picture again, which is strange since his purpose hasn’t really changed beyond ‘make funny noises’. But if it’s funny noises that Bakuman needs to entertain me, then I’ll take all the funny noises I can get over romances that don’t exist lalala.
