Scamp’s top 10 anime of 2013

10 is usually an arbitrary number chosen for these lists because it’s a nice round number. However when I went back through 2013 and took all the anime I would actually recommend people watch, I only came up with these 10. The remaining few I watched and liked came with too many big caveats to […]

Monogatari Series Second Season episode 23 – Crab of Versailles

That 70′s shoujo opening was brilliant, plain and simple. It’s dumb little things about it that I dug, like how they made the screen really grainy when compared to the shiny modern era. Or that they had the awkward looking karaoke featuring a white font with no border. Perhaps best of all was how through […]

Monogatari Series Second Season episode 15 – Even when she doesn’t appear on screen, she’s still Best Girl

I’m sorry for doubting you Senjogahara. You don’t even have to actually appear on screen. The most we got in this episode was this 5 millisecond shot where her face was cut off thanks to Shaft shooting the start and end of the episodes in a wide-screen perspective for no reason, and she was still […]

Monogatari Series: Second Season episode 3 – Feng Shui aficionado’s wet dream

I believe the look Senjogahara is going for here was this “aha I got you” moment. A sort of mixture between self-satisfaction, evil grin and that keikakudoori moment. I don’t think she really pulled it off though. It looks more like she’s just stubbed her toe and the feeling of pain is moving swiftly up […]

Monogatari Series: Second Season episode 2 – Newlyweds

Daisuki is simulcasting this Monogatari season, which is great because it’s free and its stream actually runs on my computer, unlike the Crunchyroll ones which act up on my laptop even when I try play them in SD. Thing is, even though I watch them on Daisuki, I end up pirating the episode anyway because […]

Monogatari Series: Second Season episode 1 – Senjogahara Fascination

Monogatari Series Second Season is more Monogatari Series and everything that entails. More of Nisioisin’s wandering dialogue. More scenes that cut every half a second that nevertheless give you zero idea of the dimensions of the room because in the world of the Monogatari series there is no such thing as a confined space. More […]

2012 Anime of the Year Awards and Top 10

This was the thinking pose the various members of The Cart Driver had to adopt while considering their nominations. 2012 was a fairly unremarkable year for anime. Nothing really shook the industry, unless you count terrible light novel adaptations with ridiculous titles as ‘shaking the industry’. It wasn’t a particularly bad year either, which would […]

Nisemonogatari episode 11 (finale)

Not only does sucking the blood of an ex-vampire age you a couple of years, it also hands you an entire new wardrobe. It even has the sense of style to have a doughnut emblazoned on the back of the hoodie.
