New Game!! Episode 1: New Game Xrd -SIGN-

My biggest problem with the second season of New Game is the tragic oversight of not calling it New Game+. I mean I guess it aids in googling the show (if barely), but it’s one of the biggest opportunities that I’ve seen missed. That opportunity is the size of fucking Africa, and the person in […]

Eromanga-sensei Review: Not Just a Town in Australia

Eromanga-sensei is a show that I didn’t have high hopes for. I expected it to follow a little too closely in its more well known sibling’s footsteps, without carving a strong identity of its own. While it does carve out the core of what I think is ultimately a better identity, my hopes were pretty […]

3gatsu no Lion Review: The Man Who Sadsacked the World

What’s this? A week without having to write 10-15 pages on Rome’s assimilation of the Gauls, or the colonialist causes of the Congolese Civil War? I guess that means I can finally write about good anime and not feel totally burned out on the writing process. And 3gatsu really is a good anime. It manages […]

Hand Shakers Episode 1: Moving and Shaking

I’d like to start this Hand Shakers post by talking about something tenuously related instead. This is both to promote that thing and kind of explain why I find this show’s incompetence compelling. There’s a little known (at least outside of the Chinese market) 2013 film called Switch, an Andy Lau-driven hybrid of Mission Impossible […]

Interviews With Monster Girls Episode 1: Interview With the Vampire

Do you remember Monster Musume, that other show about cryptids and half-human amalgamations? Did you want more? Well a completely different studio heard the world’s collective cry for more and made a completely different show with only the most superficial resemblance to 2015’s smash hit series, i.e. it also has monsters in it who happen […]

The Saga of Tanya the Evil Episode 1: Something Something Nut

I’m not saying that I watched this solely because of the studio name, but leave it up to something called NUT to bust out a light novel adaptation about a little girl being evil-ish in Alternate Reality Imperial Germany. Also leave it up to NUT to make The Saga of Tanya the Evil unpleasant in […]

Why I Don’t Like Flip Flappers: More Like Flim Flammers

Flip Flappers is unquestionably a vibrant show, dead-set on imbuing everything with a sense of whimsy. Even the threat of the lead being melted alive in a cage above a lava pit doesn’t dampen the Flip Flappers’ spirits, nor does being stuck in the Village of the Damned’s underfunded boarding school. Unfortunately, its attempts at […]

Shelter Review – 2016: A Space Meander

So Shelter is pretty good for a six minute music video. Hell, it’s probably the best six minute anime music video about a girl stuck in a simulation while floating alone in the depths of space written by Porter Robinson I’ve ever seen.
