Gen Urobuchi’s Puppet Show Thunderbolt Fantasy is Kind of Awesome (MAL article)

I’ve been watching a whole lot of Thunderbolt Fantasy lately since it’s on Crunchyroll. Let me tell you it’s a pretty goddamn amazing show. So much so that I decided to write a piece for MAL about why you should all go watch it. What has surprised me most is how solid the dialogue is, […]

Why Did People Hate the Second Half of Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress? (MAL Article)

I wrote a thing for MAL. I used to write these MAL article roundup posts but at some point they stopped making sense when I was writing primarily listicles. However the type of stuff I’ve been tasked to write has changed a little (a bit more attention grabbing, shocking headline type pieces), so it makes […]

We need more lightning to back up this sweetness

I really liked the opening episode of Sweetness and Lightning. It captured something about cooking that so many other anime about cooking never do. They captured the joy in seeing someone you care about eating your homemade food. It wasn’t shounen battle cooking where the actual cooking could be replaced with anything and it would […]

Day with The Cart Driver Season 2 Episode 1 – Inferno Cop advice column

Season 2! Thanks to the big break since the last episode, I’m totally making this a second season. Yeah the weeb married couple podcast is back where myself and Day from Gar Gar Stegosaurus argue about anime. We basically talk all about what we watched over the spring season, what we liked, what we didn’t […]

Damn, got to finish this thing right now. Quick, shut off Overwach for the first time in a month and […]

Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress episode 6 – Muscly women

I loved her before it was cool. I think part of what made the whole scene great was the pointlessness of it too. She didn’t need to take off her jacket to pull back that lever but, on the other hand, she definitely needed to take off her jacket to pull that lever. Araki evidently […]

Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress episode 5 – Smoke monsters

I quite enjoyed the bit at the start where the main character showed these new guns and weapons he had built using the remains of the kabane. That’s some real Xcom shit right there. Grabbing the corpses of your enemies, not really understanding them, but deciding the best thing to do is to strap parts […]

Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress episode 4 – Steam powered bows

How exactly did we end up with a kabane that is like 10 feet tall anyway? Given that he has this big growth coming out of his shoulder, I think you’re supposed to infer that in becoming a kabane he has somehow mutated. But I feel like his body proportions should be a lot more […]
