Not writing episodics this season has left me with a dearth of stuff to write about. So I’ve had to break into ye trusty olde vault of classic anime themed lists when your mind is completely devoid of any originality. So here we go, a big fat list of my favourite anime openings of all […]

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 […]

March Roundup

On March 11th, Japan was hit by a 9.0 earthquake. The actual earthquake itself caused rather minimal damage due to the crazy abilities of the builders there, but the resulting tsunami devastated the north east coast. It was a bit surreal watching the news updates, with headlines like ‘Entire Town of 10,000 Goes Missing’ and […]

Durarara episode 25

Oh Brains Base~! You have no idea how much I want another season of this. Look, I know Natsume Yuujinchou is a cool show and all and I’m moderately pleased it got another season, but it didn’t really need another one. Not compared to Durarara.

12 Days of Anime #8: Shizuo vs Izaya

I was hyped for Durarara long before it aired. The return of glorious duo of author Ryohgo Narita and animation studio Brains Base, creators of one of my absolute all time favourite anime, Baccano. Even better, Brains Base had pumped the funds into this. The trailer looked crazily high quality. It was the first time […]

Those that just missed out

My top 30 is a continuous project. There’s always more great anime out there I haven’t watched, and more great anime getting made. However a comment by Janette pointed out that it would be a shame to lose what I’ve written about those anime that drop off the top 30 list. So that’s what this […]
