Getting back into video reviewing. Credit as usual goes to Mefloraine for the loverly pictures.

    My big cri­ti­cism is the content/concept. Slay­ing an obscure, ter­ribad show is the equi­val­ent of scor­ing a 9.5 on a dive with a 1.2 degree of dif­fi­culty. Though it’s fine for a first video, I’d like to see you take on some­thing more chal­len­ging in the future. I feel like you could use the same format on non-terribad shows without los­ing any quality.

    If I did that though, it would charge over what else I blog about. Ter­ribad gives it a focus. Blog­ging without a focus is dumb

      I like to think of this as my lack of stubbornness rather than an admittance of my hypocrisy

    Ohh, Hetalia references. Makes me want you to reblog some episodes, now that the anime finished (for now.)

    And you totally fanboying about something and not saying anything negative about a show is odd to my ears, but also cute. I liked this kind of anime reviews in video form, if only to hear your voice.

    Also, what do you have to say about the newest Tiger & Bunny spoiler? 4chan is raging. RAAAAAAGING.

        I saw your reaction to it on your tumbrl.
        I feel with you.

        I can’t stop going through pixiv pics of Barnaby making waifu-rice and crying shots. ಠ_ಠ

        Man, the only thing I’ve used Pixiv for lately is Ghost Trick which is pretty dead(Zing!) as far as fan art goes…

        I really want to join in on the friend rice event but I’m poor and in college so I can’t.

        I have no tumbrl account, but I sometimes look at yours when you watched a new tiger & bunny episode. You posted it somewhere on this blog once.

        @LuffyLuffy: Sorry to just throw this out here, but is your avatar Sissel from Ghost Trick? oo

        God fucking damnit all to hell I spelled that wrong. After I proofread it.

        Well, whatever. It’s not like everything becomes suddenly clear oô
        How long did it take you to play through it?

        Three days. Then I played through it and played through it again. Favorite character tier centers somewhere around Yomiel > Sissel = Missile > Cabanela

        But dear god, I love this game. It pains me that there won’t be a sequel. Like, there’s a pain in my chest every time I replay it. ;3;

      I’m on holiday (again) so I’m not up to date with anything. Not even sure how I’m going to catch the last episode of Steins Gate

        I understand your pain. I’m working the next two Saturdays, which means I miss Doctor Who! :(

    Mefloraine I could fall in love with you. Great job. And that ball-of-hatred-Scamp was another rofl.

    Well, I still gotta watch Redline. Only watched first few mins, than had no time anymore for 1 whole week to watch any anime. It’s stressing to fall behind on anime schedule. >.< can't post on The Cart Driver about it.

      Ball of Hatred Scamp was my own drawing. I figured a scrumpled up black ball was something my minimal artistic talents was able to draw

    It’s an experience, huh? Sounds like Gurren Lagann. Or Aria.

    Movie doesn’t worth this many words. pic of yourself drooling while you watch the movie is way better. Or at least thats what I did. It was totally stunning, colorful, epic… yeah, an experience.

    Scamp (or anyone that has watched Redline for that matter): is there an anime series that mirrors this Redline “experience”? Or one that comes close?

      Redline is a one of a kind experience.

      Dead Leaves is a 52-minute movie that is way crazier and more vulgar and over-the-top than Redline.
      Gurren Lagann comes close to that level of epic, manly, adrenaline-pumping awesomeness.

        Forgot about Dead Leaves, oh god.

        I was babysitting my sisters dog when I watched it, and at the point where Pandy and Retro started fucking, the dog whimpered and jumped off the couch, hiding under a blanket.

        Dead Leaves scared my dog guys.

    I would fucking LOVE that shit.

    Have you seen/reviewed The Woman Called Fujiko Mine? I read earlier, here, that fans of Redline may like that because of the Koike connection and anime style.
