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. […]

Spring 2016 Anime first impressions part 1

New season and already like 20 things have aired. Here’s a post about only 5 of them. I’m catching up slowly, I swear. I still haven’ watched the last episodes of a few things from last season. But there’s new shiny stuff to watch so who cares about the old anime.

Mayoiga Episode 1: A Girl Named Soy Latte

I will never get over these names, or the fantastic redundancy of this image.

Winter Anime 2015 First Impressions: Luck and Logic, Dimension W and some sequels

While I beat Inushinde to the punch to write about that fantastic Rakugo anime, he beat me in writing about that time-travelling manga author show, aka the other really good anime this season (even if a little part of me secretly preferred Dagashi Kashi aka Candy Crush). So now I jump back into the pile […]

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 […]
