There are a large number of very classy anime coming up this season. Welcome to The Cart Driver’s world famous seasonal anime season preview, Summer 2015 edition.

Samurai Flamenco episode 13 – Who cares anymore [dropped]

You probably saw this coming. The latest episode of Samurai Flamenco featured the super sentai team treating their situation very seriously. The monsters are coming in to destroy Japan and everyone needs to evacuate, but the corrupt politicians (for there is never anything other than corrupt politicians in anime because any other depiction would require […]

Samurai Flamenco episode 12 – Power Rangers

After the 3 week break, I get the feeling a whole lot of people will have jumped back into Samurai Flamenco and realised “holy crap I do not care about a single thing that is going on anymore”. Funnily enough that is what happens when you set fire to your original script a quarter of […]

December Roundup

December was a crazy month. Between 12 days, secret santa reviews, and the final year in review, there’s been barely time to watch the anime before even getting the chance to write about it. I’ve got a Code Geass and Ghost in the Shell OVA sitting on my laptop as I write this. Come to […]

I quite like writing this post, as did I enjoy writing 2012, 2011 and 2010‘s versions, because they’re quite cathartic. This […]

12 Days of Anime #6: Execution Device Primate

And nothing was the same ever again. As much as pulling the Guillotine Gorilla card appears to have basically ruined Samurai Flamenco, for that single glorious moment when the policeman’s head got chopped off, it was pure and utter madness. I have never, ever seen a shift that drastic and that completely out of the […]

Samurai Flamenco episode 10 – It’s OK because it’s meta

All right guys, it was fun while it lasted. The Guillotine Gorilla moment was genius in its complete unpredictability and I felt thoroughly entertained for a brief while. But I think I’m happy now to call it a Jump the Shark moment. A true, almost definitive shark jumping moment, to the point that I can’t […]

Samurai Flamenco episode 7 – If you’re viewing this post in the future, yes this is THAT episode

Shinmaru and Inushinde wanted their opinions of this episode shared with the Cart Driver audience. On this very special episode. Very, very special episode.  I recommend you maybe catch up before reading. Barely an hour after the episode aired my twitter feed was already starting to fill up with strings of whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaats about this episode. Considering […]
