My Top 10 Favourite Anime of 2002

While 2001 was a year where TV series still struggled to work with the digital animation switchover and the actual quality anime was left up to movies and weird experimental stuff, 2002 had the TV series finally get their shit together. The movie front was noticeably barren this year, with even Ghibli doing a movie equivalent of […]

10 Anime Moments of Suck 2012

The 26th of December is the suckiest day of the year because it’s the furthest away from Christmas you can get. So, as per tradition, what better day to ‘celebrate’ the truly horrible moments of anime in 2012. In the past I’ve called them moments of HATE, but as I said earlier, this year I […]

Steins;Gate episode 6

I’m on the Metanorn Podcast! Listen as I talk about how I got into anime blogging, reminisce over Hetalia, bitch about the Evangelion ending and (pretend to) suck my finger. My general approach to episodic reviewing is to take screencaps, then do the actual writing. However sometimes I get distracted between the screencapping and the […]

My Twitter Experiment

The anime blogosphere is dying. Well, perhaps dying is too alarmist a word, but there are certainly signs the anime blogosphere is regressing. There have been many theories tossed out for why this may be the case. Blogging in general is losing its relevance, equally so in the anime world. Perhaps the 2006-8 period of […]

I didn’t like it cuz it was different: Evangelion 2.0 spoiler-free impressions

I mentioned a few posts back that I was going to an anime movie ‘festival’ of sorts where, amongst other things, they were screening the two new Evangelion movies. This was pretty big stuff seeing as the second movie, Evangelion 2.0, hasn’t been released on BD in Japan yet so it hasn’t been fansubbed and […]

No anime is dropped forever 21-25

There is no such thing as drop­ping an anime forever. When I use the term ‘dropped’ that does not mean that’s the last I’ll see of that anime in my life. Drop­ping a show means that I don’t have the enthu­si­asm to watch this show cur­rently and at a later date I’ll return to that anime. This later date may be […]
