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 […]

12 Days of Anime #4: NOT a bunch of boys being insufferably nice to each other

One of my blogging traditions is on the 26th December, once all my 12 days posts are done, I write a list of moments that caused me to rage. This year I’m struggling to come up with a half decent list. It’s not like there hasn’t been a lack of great examples of terrible writing […]

People frequently berate me for taking comedy too seriously because they think that by doing so, you stop finding it funny, a notion I disagree with. This post is a way to counter those claims, explaining why I think […]

January Roundup

We did finally get some news this month. At first I was rather dismissive about the shutting up shop of Bandai USA, because why the hell would I care about what distributors in America? That is, until I realised this was a wider strategy on the part of Bandai in Japan, which meant they were […]

31-60 Favourite Anime

I made my top 30 anime post about 2 years ago. However, as I watched more anime, more started to enter the list, which inevitably caused others to drop out. Instead of losing what I wrote about them forever, I created a ‘those who just missed out‘ page, devoted to holding those that got kicked […]
