Barakamon episode 1 – Slow-mo old man face punch

Another season, another anime that people would have known that they should watch if they had just read my season preview. Too many times I caught people describing it as “urgh another pedo show in which dudes makes friends with loli”, which says an awful lot about what fucked up expectations anime has hoisted upon […]

Spring 2014 Anime Season Preview

Hey guess what The Cart Driver writers are excited for this season? I’ll give you a clue: It has the letters J and O in the title. It may even have each of those letters twice. A little bit later than usual, but welcome to The Cart Driver’s World Famous [citation needed] Anime Season Preview, […]

Winter 2014 Anime Season Preview

Welcome to The Cart Driver’s World Famous Anime Season Preview: Winter 2014 edition.

Then again, if you pick your shows based on pictures on seasonal charts alone, how were you supposed to know it […]

Danganronpa episode 2 – Lazy

At the moment my blogging plans for the season are in a 4-way tie. Do I cover the Nisioisin squirting his hot steamy words all over my screen? I had fun blogging Nisemonogatari, but this season is going on for 2 cours and there’s only so many ways I can phrase the question “smutty art […]

5 Year Anniversary

It’s been one year since I brought on the two new servants writers, 3 and a half years since I migrated to my own domain at The Cart Driver Dawt Cawm, and 5 years since I started writing about anime on the internet with the expectation that people out there would actually want to read what […]

April Roundup

Monthly Roundups are back, bitches! I retired the monthly roundups in June last year because I was unhappy with the format. The short paragraphs meant I was essentially just listing the currently airing anime in order of how much I liked them, which doesn’t provide much in the way of meaningful writing. But I still […]
