12 Days of Anime #1: Let’s Search for Tomorrow

INFERNO COP is true. INFERNO COP is real. INFERNO COP is our champion. INFERNO COP exists in our hearts, our souls. INFERNO COP exists in all of us. INFERNO COP sacrificed himself to save us all, but his burning spirit — his singular devotion to the very ideal of JUSTICE — will never be forgotten. […]

12 Days of Anime #1: This Year’s Best Animated Police Drama

Only one show could possibly outdo Symphogear having one of the best sequences to ever be put to animation, and it’s this year’s best cyberpunk dystopian police drama with gratuitous explosions, sex appeal, and allusions to classic noir films. Only this show, with its layered narrative and unfliching depiction of the corruption inherent in the […]

12 Days of Anime #1: Trigger’s hello to the world

There was a huge amount of hype behind Trigger. Imaishi’s studio set up with all the crew that made Gurren Lagann and Panty and Stocking with him, leaving Gainax with nobody of worth left. What would their first series be? How would they introduce themselves to the world? Not through Little Witch Academia, that government […]

12 Days of Anime #2: Squirrelex

I am head over heels in love with JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure. I barely read manga, but after finishing the recent JoJo anime, I couldn’t help but dive into the manga. That was a decision I have not regretted at all. (For those of you who are wondering, I will start Steel Ball Run in January. […]

12 Days of Anime #2: Messy Spaghetti Eating and Training Montage in the Same Episode

Senki Zesshou Symphogear G: In the Distance, That Day, When the Star Became Music… is the kinds of show that I giggle about long after finishing. It’s 90’s Terribad that was made in the wrong era. There’s an infectious earnestness that I find utterly disarming, for all of the objectively bad turns that the plot […]

12 Days of Anime #2: Most Dangerous Engagement

To follow up from yesterday’s Watamote post, I have a fool-proof quick and easy way to get yourself a boyfriend or a girlfriend if you’re a massive loser otaku. Are you ready for it? Start an anime blog. No really, trust me on this, it works for both genders. Start an anime blog and write […]

12 Days of Anime #3: A Good Ol’ Fashioned Mindscrew

Space Battleship Yamato 2199 is one of my favorite series of the year. For the most part, it’s just a damn good space opera, with good pacing, tight writing, great characters, thrilling action … and a beach episode! Despite all that, however, the episode that has stuck with me the most is when the series […]

12 Days of Anime #3: Yase and Koto Are the Best Mother and Daughter

To say that I understood all that Kyosogiga went for would be a lie. To say that I have a post on the finale that’s even close to comprehensible would be even more so. Pretty much the only thing that I’ve been able to articulate as a particular strong point has been the relationship between […]
