Fall 2016 Anime First Impressions: March Comes In Like a Lion, Girlish Number, Kiss Him Not Me, The Great Passage

Someone disappears into a background of shoujo flowers, only to burst out of them again complete with petals cascading off their body. You know, I still kinda like Shaft. Last batch for now, seeing as I’ve already started my secondary project of watching all the anime from this year I missed out on due to moving/classes/work/Overwatch. […]

Fall 2016 Anime First Impressions: Keijo, Flip Flappers, All Out and Drifters

Dat hat tho Continuing with my first impressions posts. I now finally have internet in my home again, so I can watch Crunchyroll and not have to trek down to the local library and sponge off their internet with that one weird bloke who’s there everyday watching political videos on youtube and swearing under his […]

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 […]

Fall 2016 Anime First Impressions: Izetta the Last Witch, Magical Girl Raising Project, Yuri on Ice

The bug has bit me. I want to blog about anime again! As in on this site and not as some corporate whore! We’ll see how long this lasts as I’ve only been picking up the anime I had some interest in pre-season. It’s nice that none of them have let me down though. In […]

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 […]

Spring 2016 Anime first impressions part 3

Final batch of first impressions for the season. Or second impressions? Or in some cases third impressions since various episode 3s have already started coming out. Damnit this is all your fault Big Order. Why you got to be so fashionably late? Who do you think you are, pre-Guilty Crown Noitamina? (I kinda miss when […]

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.

Spring 2016 Anime first impressions part 2

Don’t ask. Next batch of first impressions. A touch less impressive than the last bunch with a few disappointments in there, but still an exciting season so far. Even if the ones I’ve enjoyed most so far have been the dumb comedies with cute girls and the serious manly anime have been a bit disappointing. […]
