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 […]

10 Anime Moments of Suck 2012

The 26th of December is the suckiest day of the year because it’s the furthest away from Christmas you can get. So, as per tradition, what better day to ‘celebrate’ the truly horrible moments of anime in 2012. In the past I’ve called them moments of HATE, but as I said earlier, this year I […]

June Roundup

Hi guys, I’m your new writer for The Cart Driver. Scamp so graciously invited me to join, being that wonderful and handsome and sexy man that he is, and I can’t wait to stand in the shadow of such a great writer! *cough* Anyway, this is the final monthly roundup ever. Some quick highs and […]

It seemed awfully strange for it to be placed just after a big cliffhanger in the episode before. Now that I’ve watched episode 10 though, I have my theories why […]

May Roundup

You can tell I wasn’t very active last month by the fact the last monthly roundup is still on the homepage. No big anime news this month, just plain old ratings to do for now.

April Roundup

Boy I’m not very good at this whole ‘being on hiatus’ thing. Already I’ve written two really long posts since the supposed hiatus. This just happens to be how I wind down. I’m weird like that. For the record, I haven’t watched anime in over a week, so I’m at least one episode behind on […]

Small Character Touches in Sankarea and Kids on the Slope

The dad in Sankarea wants to monopolise his affection for his daughter. The main character in Kids on the Slope really likes this girl and wants to appear cool in front of her. These are two distinct character traits for two characters, but what I really like about both of these traits is how they […]

Sankarea episode 1

I’ve seen a few people hype this manga up pre-season, but I thought they must be reading some different manga to the Sankarea I did. The one I read was laughably horrible. It had the generic male Yuji Everylead. His perverted best friend. A school full of polite well brought up girls. The attractive dainty […]
