JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders episode 24 – Secret Handshakes

Scamp: Wooh I get to start this week! Turns out I spoke too soon last week where I said I wasn’t really feeling this stand user. All it took was for Kakyoin and Polnareff to exchange a manly secret handshake about how they both knew the sign language for being able to see someone’s underwear […]

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 […]
