Big Order Review: More Like Big Snore(der)

The opening of Big Order is, far and away, its biggest redeeming element. I say this not because it’s exceptional, but compared to every other aspect of the show, it’s the epitome of artistic expression. As Big Order collapsed into the realm of inanity, the decent OP remained its only consistent feature, setting expectations to […]

The Focus Problem of Mayoiga: Why Lovepon is the Only Good Thing About the Show

Mayoiga has a significant problem between it and staying good, and it’s that everyone isn’t Lovepon. This may seem like a joke meant to further my virulent pro-Lovepon agenda and her insistence on executing everything that looks at her funny, but it is something that dramatically reduces the joy that I get from watching socially […]

Sakamoto desu ga? Episode 1: Sitting on an Atomic Nothing Waiting For It to Go Off

It’s amazing what an injection of self awareness can do for making a shitty trend palatable again. I find it way better for the show to want me laughing at its lead, rather than it unintentionally encouraging me to do so. At least then I know that an adult had a part in writing it.

Inushinde’s Top 30 Anime 2.0

Better a few years late than never, but here’s an updated list of what anime are objectively the best according to somebody who, for some reason, can’t seem to get enough of cartoons aimed at little girls. In order to keep portions of the list from feeling too same-y (i.e. ARIA-y, Ghibli-y), some of the […]

Bokumachi and Candy Bar Theft: Grand Theft Chocolato

I doubt I’m going to ruffle any feathers when I say that Bokumachi isn’t exactly a show with a dedication to realism. That assumption should have gotten thrown out the first time that Satoru went back in time to prevent something bad from happening. And if it didn’t for you, I’m kind of curious about […]
