Gakkou Gurashi Episode 10: Taroumarley and Me


Well, I think we all saw this coming as of last week. With the way that Gakkou Gurashi played this character up, it’s sad, but expected that they would have turned and attacked somebody that they formerly loved. It may have been the way that Taroumaru barked at a suspiciously Sakura-sensei-shaped figure lumbering around in the basement, or the fact that their impact on everyone was being played up in recent episodes, but there’s no turning back from the fact that… Read More »

I am the official Code Geass expert and appeared on ANNCast

I need this framed

I am the official Code Geass expert! You know this because when ANN asked the general public who they should bring on to talk about how fantastic Code Geass was, they were bombarded with people saying you had to get this Scamp guy on. So I did and you can listen to it here. I was a wee bit nervous. Not because I had to go on a podcast or that it had a lot of listeners, as I’ve had both those experiences before. It was I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to defend this dumb anime I love so much. I think I did a good job. You can decide. As a bonus you get to hear my real name and my sexy Irish accent.

Gakkou Gurashi Episode 9: Cat Hat-Wearing Girl (and Dog) Day Afternoon


There’s something almost admirably brazen about playing around in a makeshift pool just a few stories above a ravenous horde of the undead, where their collective moans could undoubtedly be heard. It’s also disconcerting that living next to a group of the living impaired has desensitized them so much that they can have a day of fun in the sun without existential dread crashing down on them like decaying, moaning bricks.  Read More »

The Anime Podcast to be named later episode 0 – Pilot

vlcsnap-2015-09-07-16h30m32s002Here’s something new we’re trying out. So last year I got married to Day from GAR GAR Stegosaurus. Being two aniblogger losers, we inevitably spend a lot of time talking about anime and shitting on each other’s awful taste. We had originally decided never to do any anime writing content together because we were afraid it would be too vomit-inducing, but our conversations can be very interesting. So we decided it would be a good idea to record them and let everyone else in on the conversations.

Cinderella Girls and Letting Dreams Change: Why Bunny Girl Depression is Great


I never thought I’d get so into the context behind an insufferable bunny-eared girl crying, but here I am praising just that only a day or so before the newest episode. I’ll just pretend that I haven’t been working on this post on and off for two weeks, and just wanted to get it out before more content possibly makes it obsolete. Thank you for getting more alright, Cinderella Girls Season Two. Read More »

MAL articles roundup #3 – School Live thematic analysis

Gakkou Gurashi - 07 - Large 22Another week, another MAL posts roundup. Still working my way into things, but I’ve fallen into a comfortable rhythm of 3 episodics and one analytical post per week. Might even bump it up to 2 non-episodics per week once I get my schedule sorted out. As I write the season preview for this site, I’m sure I can use the knowledge from there to write several posts for MAL. Oh yeah, that season preview is still coming. Anyway, here’s what I wrote last week.

MAL articles roundup #2 – More episodics and predicting the next megahit

vlcsnap-2015-08-18-15h15m21s957Some loser showing off his Splatoon Miiverse post.

More MAL articles as I continue to try get the hang of this “working for the man” thing. I’ve asked about comments on articles as well as RSS feeds for individual authors. Comments sound like they are coming, just not yet as they work all this coding out for the new site features being rolled out. RSS feeds weren’t originally planned, but they sounded open to the idea so watch this space. For now though, here’s what I’ve been writing.

Gakkou Gurashi Episode 6: I See Dead (Spoiler Alert)


Holy shit I never would have seen this particular reveal coming… if it weren’t for a few dutiful commenters. Of course it isn’t any less chilling, because something done well with sufficient build-up will still be good, regardless of whether you know it’s coming. That’s why every time I see the Garfield phone in Ninja Terminator I feel like all is right with the world. Gakkou Gurashi abides by the same principle, except it replaces Richard Harrison talking to a crime lord with a girl talking to people in blood-covered classrooms, one of whom may or may not exist. Exactly the same principle. Read More »
