Secret Santa review: Kanon (06)

Kanon is the the last of the Kyoto Animation animated Key visual novels that I had to see. Somehow I’d managed to watch all of Clannad, Clannad After Story and Air. While writing staff and directing staff differ slightly with each iteration, there’s an incredibly clear singular style between each anime. It’s a style that […]

Fall 2013 Anime Season Preview

Last season I saw a rather depressing number of people saying something along the lines of “I didn’t expect anything from Silver Spoon and was really surprised when it turned out to be excellent”.

Is it my imagination, or has every season been getting worse since […]

Steins;Gate episode 5

You know you want some of my soft banana. You jelly? Wait…did the show call him Jellyman because he reported on the people who turned to Jelly? That’s kinda lame. I prefer to think it’s because he was jealous of his bosses new lab coat instead, so that’s what the crew at SERN CERN called […]
