The First Death in Grimgar: Grimming in My Gar, the Grims They Will Not Gar

In defiance of all expectations, something with the standards-drowning name of Grimgar is actually pretty understated in its depiction of the unceremonious quickness of death. So much so that there isn’t even a potentially goofy image of anime characters crying. Unfortunately, it’s a little too understated in this episode, to the extent that what should […]

Grimgar & Goblins: Viva Torture

For how often people are beaten, maimed, killed, or just plain hurt in anime, it doesn’t tend to dwell on the agony that tends to result from being run through by foreign objects. Even shows that try to be mature focus on the result of suffering more than the suffering itself. Hell, the last show […]

Bokumachi Episode 2: Bleak is the New Great

Okay, so remember how I didn’t care much for BokuMachi? Well I didn’t care much for BokuMachi. Even now I can’t quite place what about it doesn’t work for me insofar as the bigger picture goes. Still, the second episode does a couple of things really well, and it should be commended even as it […]

Grimgar First Impressions: The Moral Peculiarity of MMOs

Anime titles tend to be utilitarian things, serving only to distinguish a work, without necessarily speaking for the content. There are a few exceptions though, where a title communicates everything about the show without actually spelling it out in classic light novel format. Grimgar is heir to this noble tradition. It’s grim, it’s fantasy, and there […]

Boku dake ga Inai Machi Episode 1: It’s Hard to Get Good Screenshots of Bokumachi Therefore it Sucks

Thanks to the unfairness of abiding by a consistent sleep schedule and being way more diligent about actually writing about things in a timely manner, Scamp beat me to the punch on Rakugo Shinjuu, which I might actually consider writing on if later episodes keep up the same quality present here. So here are my thoughts […]

Haruchika First Impressions: I Could Be Playing MGSV Instead I’m Watching Anime

After an experiment where PA Works decided to make something that adults not mentally stuck in their high school years would enjoy, it looks like they’ve settled back into what they do best: Making shiny-haired slop about teenagers with mundane problems enjoying their youth in a way that only adults with regret could do. Well […]

Inushinde’s Top 10 of 2015

Boy this year went by fast. It seems like only yesterday that I was struggling to think of ten anime to put on my year end list, and debating whether to replace Parasyte with Valkyrie Drive. Wait, that was only yesterday. Onward to nine anime that I feel deserve to be given accolades (and Valkyrie […]

12 Days of Anime #1: The #1 Character in the #1 Show of the Year

Okay I’m just fucking with y’all, it’s Hana from Prison School. Even I don’t think that highly of Sore ga Seiyuu, the poor man’s Shirobako made by a poor man’s studio about poor man’s voice actors, that had more than a poor man’s quality.
