Day with The Cart Driver Season 2 Episode 6 – One game of Haikyuu

Sports anime suddenly got really popular. I wonder why? Welcome back to A Day with The Cart Driver anime podcast with myself and Day from GAR GAR Stegosaurus. This time we’re doing the episode we’ve been threatening to do for a while: Haikyuu! Lots of lots of Haikyuu chatter. Mostly about the latest season and how much […]

12 Days of Anime #7: Tsuki yells loudly

Going into the third season of Haikyuu, there was a potential issue I saw coming up within the story. I didn’t see any character development that was left for them to do. Kageyama and Hinata had gone through their arcs. They had even finished them off with the final match of last season with them […]

12 Days of Anime #8: Boom Boom Satellites

One of my favourite anime openings of all time is the first Xam’d opening. Yeah that show eventually crapped out in the second half like an alarming number of Bones anime, but I still love that OP. I kept waiting for Boom Boom Satellites, the band who performed the OP, to be picked for another […]

12 Days of Anime #9: Vacuum Butt Cannon

There was this one scene in Keijo that was a perfect demonstration of why this show is special. Our main character had just swung her butt around at supersonic speeds, ripping through the air and cutting the swimsuits of the other competitors in the game. For one second the girls grab their swimsuits and go kyaaa. […]

12 Days of Anime #10: Jesus Christ Drifters

Recasting historical figures into future warriors with a variety of super powers is a popular plot point for fantasy stories, but in these sorts of stories there are always a few people you’re not allowed to represent. Hitler is rarely used, mostly because Hitler is so cartoonishly evil it’s kind of boring to make him […]

12 Days of Anime #11: Saiki Kusou visits London

Working in London is weird in ways I hadn’t imagined it would be. I wouldn’t have thought myself a country boy by any stretch of the imagination, but there’s something a bit different about an international city and one of the most iconic places in the world. So much so though random gag anime have […]

12 Days of Anime #12: Mad Max: Luby Road

The 12 Days of Anime project are a series of posts run by anime writers during the Christmas period where they write about 12 particularly notable moments in anime in the days leading up until Christmas. I’ve been taking part in this for several years now. Heck I used to help organise it until this […]

Winter 2017 Anime Season Preview

While writing this season preview I found myself thinking of the laughing producers in Girlish Number and their hair-brained ideas for how to create a hit in the hottest new craze. I’m pretty sure half of the anime from this season came from their think tank. There’s a bar somewhere in Tokyo with a number […]
