Psycho Pass season 2 episode 3 – Eye need something of yours

Nothing grosses me out and makes me squeamish more than eye torture. Even hacking off a dude’s balls doesn’t get me to squeeze up into my own little world of pain quite like eye torture, with the possible exception of cringe humour from Watamote. Perhaps it’s the fact that you can see it coming towards […]

Parasyte episode 3 – Not now, we’re in public

When you’re out in a cafe with your man and he starts unravelling his head in a threatening manner, don’t you just hate that #justgirlthings I’m pretty darn excited that we’ve introduced our parasyte maths teacher. She’s probably the best character in the manga alongside Migi, probably because they have a lot in common. They’re both […]

Fantasy Anime League Fall 2014 week 2 – 20 year-old manga adaptations are hits

Two weeks into Fantasy Anime League and it’s time to check in on how you’re doing. Did you get it all right and correctly predicted that MAL would love a fine collection of light novel adaptations, or did you somehow not realise that an adaptation of a 20 year old manga by a slowly dying […]

Psycho Pass season 2 episode 2 – Badassery comes with bad lungs

Akane smokes now. Mai waifu has been ruined. Actually I find this to be a really interesting reveal for her character. She definitely didn’t smoke last season. It fit her more straight-out-of-college naive young adult look. It seems like she’s picked up the habit from Kougami. If anything it wasn’t even made clear whether she […]

Parasyte episode 2 – Dickhand

My demands for a Parasyte adaptation are pretty lenient. There were only two scenes I really wanted in. Firstly the one from the very start where the man’s head splits into 10 different jaws and bites off his wife’s head. The second was dickhand. We sort of got dickhand, in about as uncensored a fashion […]

Shirobako episode 1 – Drag racing

My favourite part of this episode was the 5 minutes of fake-out at the beginning. You thought it was going to be a story about a bunch of high school girls in a club together being aggressively happy about everything, telling the story of an idealised youth. You know, that same story PA Works have […]

Psycho Pass season 2 episode 1 – Girl Force

At the end of the first season of Psycho Pass, Akane had gone through a pretty significant shift. She had gone from this nervous rookie to a badass who jumped onto the side of moving trucks. Her more naive view of the world was broken but she kept her ideals and continued to fight for […]

Parasyte episode 1 – I have 7 eyes and 8 jaws, nice to meet you

I’m a huge fan of the manga for Parasyte and was cautiously optimistic coming into this anime. One thing I was a little afraid of was whether it would be full of censorship. Body horror is right at the core of Parasyte and stripping that out would diminish the horror these things are supposed to […]
