Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress episode 3 – Zombie Vampires

I call bullshit on the scene at the start of this episode. Ikoma is trying to disagree with Mumei so to shut him up she kicks him in the balls. Except as we’ve already established he apparently can’t feel pain. Hence kicking him in the balls shouldn’t cause him to curl up into the fetal […]

Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress episode 2 – Featureless best friend

My secret favourite character in Kabaneri might be the main character’s dorky friend. Where everyone else in this show has super pretty character designs with unique distinguishing features, this guy looks like some background dude you only see once. Like some guy who was running away from the Kabane, slipped on a banana peel and […]

Spring 2016 Anime first impressions part 3

Final batch of first impressions for the season. Or second impressions? Or in some cases third impressions since various episode 3s have already started coming out. Damnit this is all your fault Big Order. Why you got to be so fashionably late? Who do you think you are, pre-Guilty Crown Noitamina? (I kinda miss when […]

Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress episode 1 – Attack on Trains

Here we have a steampunk anime set in a world where everyone is stuck behind giant walls to escape from man-eating monsters that look like horribly deformed humans. Our main character is angry at the world for hiding behind these walls, being afraid of ever breaking out from this layer of fear that sits over […]

Spring 2016 Anime first impressions part 2

Don’t ask. Next batch of first impressions. A touch less impressive than the last bunch with a few disappointments in there, but still an exciting season so far. Even if the ones I’ve enjoyed most so far have been the dumb comedies with cute girls and the serious manly anime have been a bit disappointing. […]

Spring 2016 Anime first impressions part 1

New season and already like 20 things have aired. Here’s a post about only 5 of them. I’m catching up slowly, I swear. I still haven’ watched the last episodes of a few things from last season. But there’s new shiny stuff to watch so who cares about the old anime.

Winter Anime Season Wrapup Part 2 – Dagashi Kashi, Haikyuu, Osomatsu-san and the shorts

The Beatles were also fans of Osomatsu-san. The new season has started and already there’s been some excellent anime. I was particularly fond of the first episode of Mayoiga, or The Lost Village as we’re apparently calling it now. This season is looking to be one of the biggest in anime for a long time, […]

Winter 2016 Anime Season Wrapup Part 1 – Shouwa Era Rakugo Shinjuu, Durarara and Iron Blooded Orphans

I’ve been at a bit of a loss on how to write about all these anime. I’ll have to figure out something better for next season. Heck since I’m not doing it for MAL, I might try write episodic posts again. Covering Big Order after the fun of blogging Future Diary, or maybe laughing at […]
