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 […]
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 […]
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 […]

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, […]
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 […]
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.

Because I can think of nothing The Cart Driver needs more than a second opinion on Mahouka.
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 […]
