Returning to: Kaiba

If you want real massive anime boob action, you don’t go to Eiken. You go to Kaiba. As I outlined in my last anniversary post, I’m planning to return to a bunch of my old favourite anime, although it feels weird to call something from the spring 2008 season ‘old’. That was the first season […]

Fantasy Anime League Spring 2014 finale – So near yet so far

Fantasy Anime League is over for another season. The bi-annual game of predicting MAL’s horrible taste in anime has concluded. Some people finished right up near the top of the table. Others competed for the prestigious rank right down the bottom. Others finished in a disappointing mid-table and totally did not delay in writing this […]

Mahouka continues to be awful

When I stopped blogging Mahouka, I figured that would be the end of my involvement with the series. Yet here I am, 15 episodes in and I’m still watching it. Sure I’ve started watching it at 3x speed, but still I have some kind of weird fascination with it. Since I know a whole load […]

Terror of Resonance episode 1 – Terrorism cures bullying

Terror of Resonance is about two teenage boys with Dark Pasts involving lots of dead children. Their names are Genki Boy, who thankfully actually has a brain and isn’t genki because his skull is filled with nothing but adrenaline, and Broody Boy, who lives in his own dark and serious chuuni world. According to one […]

Shounen Hollywood episode 1 – Creepy idols

It took me until halfway through the first episode for me to realise the cast of Shounen Hollywood were supposed to be teenage boys. Supposedly they’re between the ages of 15 to 19. I thought they were in their 30s. When the main character started narrating about his early life, I thought he was a […]

Monthly Girls Nozaki-kun episode 1 – Please don’t become the thing you’re parodying

Remember the name of Gangan Online, the online manga publishing arm of the Gangan brand. The manga that have been turned into anime that came from Gangan Online so far have been Watamote, Daily Lives of Highschool Boys, Barakamon and some crappy 4-koma about cute girls that nobody watched. Now they’ve got Nozaki-kun, which judging by […]

Aldnoah Zero episode 1 – Terrible things happen to everyone

After this episode, I have decided what I would like Butch Gen to do next is a ridiculous parody of his own writing style. There was a scene at the end of the episode where two little innocent kids saw shooting stars and wished that the world would have eternal peace. It just so happens […]

Barakamon episode 1 – Slow-mo old man face punch

Another season, another anime that people would have known that they should watch if they had just read my season preview. Too many times I caught people describing it as “urgh another pedo show in which dudes makes friends with loli”, which says an awful lot about what fucked up expectations anime has hoisted upon […]
