Shinmaru’s Top 30 Anime + tags

ok Turning Girls isn’t actually on my list, but i didn’t know what to use as a lead image and kaerun rules so fuck it The more anime I watch, the more the idea of ranking anime makes me uncomfortable. How the heck do I compare series with vastly different goals and methods of storytelling? […]

Shinmaru’s Top 10 Anime of 2015

WAIT FUCK I HAVE TO MAKE A LIST WHEN I PROBABLY HAVEN’T WATCHED EVERYTHING THIS YEAR CRAP CRAP CRAP CRAP CRAP My watching habits took a sharp turn in the second half of the year for personal reasons. I am rarely able to watch most of the shows in a given year that I might […]

12 Days of Anime No. 7 – Ice Ice Baby

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders, even for someone like me who liked most of the series, could be a frustrating experience. The production team did its best to recreate the feeling of the JoJo’s experience as much as possible. Ultimately, though, anime and manga are different mediums with different strengths and weaknesses. I’d readily admit […]

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders 48 – The End of The World (END)

I would pay a pretty penny to attend DIO: The Musical. Before I get into everything else, I want to say that out of everything in this adaptation of Stardust Crusaders, this particular battle is the part where David Pro absolutely nailed the pacing. Actually, everything seemed to unfold faster than I remember, which is […]

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders 47 – Time Stops for No One

Someone please identify the person or people responsible for deciding that DIO should interrupt the OP with his Stand this week, prance around, and get into a ridiculous punch fight with Jotaro, and make certain this person or these people are handsomely rewarded for the rest of their lives. How much delirious laughing must have […]

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders 46 – The Longest Five Seconds in The World

“What, you thought dogs are the only animals I wish to see suffer?” – Hirohiko Araki, probably. Now that DIO’s fun car ride with Senator Armstrong Phillips, the battle begins in earnest. The first episode of the battle is quite fun, but it isn’t quite as flashy and interesting as I hoped it would be. […]

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders 45 – ZA WARUDO?!

It’s beyond great that DIO needs to dress up with a fancy cape and walk all sassy-like when he goes out on the town. Does he have a wardrobe of capes, or does he have just the one because he probably doesn’t venture outside too much? He is the “sit at home and read all […]

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders 44 – Vanilla Ice Melts

I didn’t write about it much in last week’s post, because I didn’t want to draw too much attention to it, but I love how this fight quietly sets up the endgame through visuals. We see from the start that DIO resurrects Vanilla Ice by pouring his blood into Ice (what a hilarious sentence that […]
