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.

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 […]

We need more lightning to back up this sweetness

I really liked the opening episode of Sweetness and Lightning. It captured something about cooking that so many other anime about cooking never do. They captured the joy in seeing someone you care about eating your homemade food. It wasn’t shounen battle cooking where the actual cooking could be replaced with anything and it would […]

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 […]

Winter Anime Season Wrapup Part 2 – Dagashi Kashi, Haikyuu, Osomatsu-san and the shorts

The Beatles were also fans of Osomatsu-san. The new season has started and already there’s been some excellent anime. I was particularly fond of the first episode of Mayoiga, or The Lost Village as we’re apparently calling it now. This season is looking to be one of the biggest in anime for a long time, […]

Winter 2016 Anime Season Wrapup Part 1 – Shouwa Era Rakugo Shinjuu, Durarara and Iron Blooded Orphans

I’ve been at a bit of a loss on how to write about all these anime. I’ll have to figure out something better for next season. Heck since I’m not doing it for MAL, I might try write episodic posts again. Covering Big Order after the fun of blogging Future Diary, or maybe laughing at […]

If you prefer the childhood friend in Dagashi Kashi, you are bad and wrong

I’ve increasingly seen people watching the Japanese sweets show Candy Crus-sorry, I mean Dagashi Kashi, who are expressing their preference for the character Saya. This childhood friend archetype is indeed an agreeable character with her beady eyes, infectious smile and a snagle tooth that evidently runs in the family. She’s so cute, you just want […]
