Summer 2014 Anime Season Preview

The anime landscape has changed since I started doing these season previews. There are 2 anime this season based off otome game adaptations targeted at the ladies. There isn’t a single visual novel adaptation targeted at guys. Instead there are 6 light novel adaptations aimed at dudes, 7 if we feel like including the Monogatari TV […]

December Roundup

December was a crazy month. Between 12 days, secret santa reviews, and the final year in review, there’s been barely time to watch the anime before even getting the chance to write about it. I’ve got a Code Geass and Ghost in the Shell OVA sitting on my laptop as I write this. Come to […]

Monogatari Series Second Season episode 26 (finale) – Nadeko to be the next Tezuka

Considering how much they teased what was in that wardrobe, it could have been a hell of a lot more anti-climactic. Nadeko could have become a snake god because she was busy running away from doing her summer homework. Now imagine how annoyingly anti-climactic that would have been to several episodes of nothing but repeating […]

This is a cobbled together list of our favourite anime plus a bunch of arbitrary awards for whatever categories we could come up with. There’s not attempt to be objective (except for the Best Butts category […]

Scamp’s top 10 anime of 2013

10 is usually an arbitrary number chosen for these lists because it’s a nice round number. However when I went back through 2013 and took all the anime I would actually recommend people watch, I only came up with these 10. The remaining few I watched and liked came with too many big caveats to […]

Monogatari Series Second Season episode 25 – You trying to fool me?

Nisioisin supports underage drinking. Nadeko went from onii-chan fetishist Worst Girl to binge drinking snake goddess. With the reveal at the end of this episode, combined with her brilliant EEEHHHH scene, she’s had two of the best moments in the whole season. Character transformation ahoy. If pulling a guillotine gorilla is anime version’s of jump […]

Monogatari Series Second Season episode 24 – Legacy building

I like this scene because Kaiki holds the phone in a vaguely similar way to L from Death Note. Like if he gripped it properly it would contaminate his hand so he has to gingerly grasp it between two fingers and hold it away from his face as though it might bite him at any […]
