Inaho is terrible and Slaine is great

There are loads of great anime this season. More airing at one time than I can remember in my anime viewing life. So much so that couldn’t decide which one to start praising first and my natural instincts took over. As the adrenaline kicked in I started typing furiously at a keyboard and suddenly realized all […]

Durarara!! x2 episode 3 – Narita likes mass murderers

I am generally a pretty forgiving man. It probably comes from me living in the UK for too long, but someone could bump into me on the street, then turn around and punch me in the face, spit on my crotch, take a dump in my bag then use my laptop to download both seasons […]

Parasyte episode 15 – I wonder if Shinichi is worried about his humanity

Pacing is a different beast from anime to manga. In manga you control the pacing. You can spend however long you want staring at a beautiful landscape shot, while zooming past boring exposition as you wish. It rips control away from the creators though and means they can’t rely on them being able to hit […]

Durarara!! x2 episode 2 – Thumbtack enhanced interrogation

Last week Durarara spent its first episode reminding us who all these characters were, to which I responded with “oh yeah I remember all these nutcases” and most other people responded with “I don’t know what the fuck is going on or who these people are help me”. This week they set about reminding us […]

Parasyte episode 14 – Evil laugh

I enjoyed this! I was starting to feel a little down on Parasyte after spending a few episodes on its considerably worse female characters and one more bad episode might have pushed me into mini rant territory. But then big mouth shows up again and modifies his face so he looks like the Terminator and […]

Winter 2015 anime first impressions – second take

It’s been tough to keep up with the new season. Between no internet and no laptop, I had to download anime illegally at libraries like some drug addict who had to keep his addiction going by burning random household medicines when his dealer disappeared. However I’ve finally caught up so it’s time to lay some […]

Durarara!! x2 episode 1 – Massive character reintroduction

You didn’t think I’d miss this, did you? While not technically the first anime I covered weekly (that was the first season of Natsume Yuujinchou oddly enough), the first season of Durarara was the first I covered when I moved away from my old Bokutachi no Blog stomping ground and started up The Cart Driver […]

Parasyte episode 13 – The best babysitter

Since Christmas I’ve had to drive halfway across Europe on the opposite side of the road to what I’m used to in a car with all my worldly possessions in and move into a house with no bed or internet. I slept on an air mattress then drove my in-laws to and back from Prague […]
