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.

Occultic;Nine Episode 1: Occultic;Ja, or Occultic;Nein?

Occultic;Nine is the next in a proud line of x-semicolon-y shows that gives my spellcheck a heart attack each time I write the title out. It’s also exactly what a 40-something adult thinks all anime is, being chockfull of titanic trembling tits, hyperactive pacing, a less than flattering depiction of effeminate bartenders, and a teenage […]

WWW.Working!! Episode 1: Coming Out of Retirement

Another season of Working and yet another show about magical girls being victims of malevolent forces far beyond their control are the two things that I never thought the world needed more of, but I guess here’s Fall 2016 to prove me wrong. Here are my thoughts on one of those shows mentioned in the […]

Re:Zero Review: A Re:Zolution That Leaves Some:Zthing to be De:Zired

Well it’s certainly been a little while since I last made my existence known on here. Not that I haven’t written anything, but the quality of my writing tends to decrease dramatically when I spend an entire summer bombed out on unexpectedly good Domino’s pizza/booze/a combination of the two. Anyway, here are some thoughts on […]
