2003 Anime: Last Exile

Last Exile is a big classic adventure anime featuring a heavy steampunk aesthetic and dodgy early 00’s Gonzo CGI. It tells the story of Klaus and Lavie, two pilots of little messenger aircraft-type things called Vanships. They take over a mission to deliver a little girl called Alvis to a renegade sky ship called the […]

If you are a regular of these most prestigious of lengthy blog posts, you will know that I like to let my cynical side take over and run amok over Japan’s latest animated offerings.

Arpeggio of Blue Steel episode 1 – One day CG anime will look good

This is a first for me. I had read the manga for Arpeggio of Blue Steel before watching the anime. It’s not fantastic, but it had great ideas that an anime adaptation could really improve on. Mostly I was determined to not be That Guy who claims the manga is soooooo much better. Certainly with […]

Summer 2013 Anime Season Preview

It’s summer!

Summer 2012 Anime Season Preview

Hiiro no Kakera episode 1

Future Diary is on a break this week, but who cares about Future Diary anymore ? Not me, oh lawdy me. That show is old news and now smells worse than your mother’s cootch. We’ve got new shiny unsullied anime to watch and be thoroughly disappointed by. So grab your nearest dakimakura and get ready […]

Future Diary episode 4

I’m going to have to drop Last Exile from my blogging schedule.  It’s an all right anime and it’s not like there’s a lack of things to talk about. I liked how the third episode introduced the fact that the so-called ‘heroes’ of this story are a bunch of religious fanatic pirates, charging into a ‘holy’ […]
