Steins;Gate Movie review

There are two kinds of anime movies from existing franchises. The first is made because the creators wanted to continue the story in movie format. The second is made because the original TV series gave them a lot of money and they didn’t want to waste the brand. Steins;Gate is the second type. Of that […]

Fall 2012 Anime Season Preview

And Lo’, the Lord did give unto him the 3 Laws of Season Previews: Everything is interesting until proven otherwise. Going in with a closed mind is the surest way to miss out on the Next Big Thing. There is no such thing as a sure-fire hit. Everything has a chance of sucking. Good staff […]

31-60 Favourite Anime

I made my top 30 anime post about 2 years ago. However, as I watched more anime, more started to enter the list, which inevitably caused others to drop out. Instead of losing what I wrote about them forever, I created a ‘those who just missed out‘ page, devoted to holding those that got kicked […]

Ben-To episode 1

If you have a stocking fetish, you may as well drop everything and watch the first episode of Ben-To now. The camera seemed to be permanently fixed on the upper thigh region of every girl, showing off their shiny black stockings or a particularly nice example of zettai ryouiki. For everyone else, read on.

Fate/Zero episode 1

Disclaimer: The only previous experience I’ve had with the Fate/Whatever franchise is 2 episodes of Fate/Stay Night, which was shockingly bad.

Steins;Gate episode 23

I really liked this scene. Where the two of them were sitting in the time machine and Suzuha said those white balls appear every time she travels, but nobody knows why. It gives this notion that there’s a vast world to explore in the area of time travel. There are other anime that do this […]
