The Heroic Legend of Arslan episode 7 – Moeblob and the boob queen

On the last post I did a commenter asked what it was I even liked about Arslan. Apparently I have been more vocal about the parts I dislike than the parts I like. I know, right? Me, negative? Never! I hadn’t thought I was being too negative, but nevertheless to show that one guy I […]

Code Geass episodes 21-25 – I could tell you to kill the Japanese

Before we even begin on Bloodstained Euphie, let’s talk about episode 21 and anime’s tendency to air the goofiest episodes right before the most insane dark episodes. Or alternatively right after. You know that if you have an episode in which the most memorable moment is when a giant robot making the world’s biggest pizza […]

The Heroic Legend Legend of Arslan episode 6 – Santa loses his head

This isn’t how I expected to see this character again. I suppose at least he still looks cool. It’s hard to look cool when you have no arms from which to pose with, as we learned from Jojo’s. But Arabian Santa Claus manages it. I wonder if the King will still look cool with his […]

Code Geass episodes 17-20 – I will now proceed to pleasure myself with this fish

You’ve seen this screengrab before haven’t you, except with some choice subtitles under it. In the scene in question, Suzaku doesn’t even say anything. He has just jumped up from the water after having caught a fish. At most he breaths a little heavily and looks around wondering if he’s dropped his nipples in the […]

The Heroic Legend of Arslan episode 5 – The Fellowship of the Ring

I’m not the only one getting a real Fellowship of the Ring vibe from these episodes, right? Arslan is Frodo, Daryun is Strider, Narsus is Arwen obviously. Narsus’ little friend is another hobbit. Yeah it totally works. The only issue is the other hobbit isn’t nearly homosexual enough with Arslan to be representative of Sam and […]

Code Geass episodes 13-16 – C.C’s wide array of silly hats

C.C riding a dirt bike up a mountain while wearing a goth loli dress complete with matching silly little hat. My favourite part about this scene is a few moment before we see C.C chatting to some random dude on the road as she’s trying to find someone. This dude happens to be riding this […]

April 2015 Roundup

Before we jump into a monthly roundup, I was in a book! Lauren Orsini of Otaku Journalist wrote a book Build Your Own Anime Blog with a load of interviews from prominent anime bloggers and me (doh ho ho self deprecating wit). It’s a pretty sizable old read there with tons of interesting stuff from […]

The Heroic Legend of Arslan episode 4 – Mount your friends

Narsus throwing a bunch of thugs down a trapdoor then just leaving them there was my favourite part of this episode. It’s like he dropped them down there then realised he didn’t know what to do next but had to look cool in front of his old friend. So instead he started treating them as […]
