As mentioned in the monthly roundup, I happen to be awfully busy right now. I’ve moved house and just started a new job so my life is really hectic. I’ve handed off the latest Samurai Flamenco post to one of my minions co-writers. Here’s Monogatari though, while it’s the weekend and I’ve still got unpacked […]

If you are reading this long after the episode aired, I’ve skipped forward to episode 12 because there was no episode 11. Well there was, but it was a recap again. Just assume there will be a recap episode after every arc. We haven’t recapped Nisemonogatari yet so they still have material. They’ll probably recap […]

Just as I was loading up the new Nisemonogatari episode, I paused it just as it began to get myself a hot chocolate. Lo and behold, what is the very first frame of the episode? Shaft and their wonderful obsession with close up shots of people’s eyes. I wonder if every single episode of the […]
