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 […]

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.
