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.

Nisemonogatari episode 7

Oh Shaft. I’m not even sure how much of this is down to Shinbo anymore. It’s not like he has much to work with when it comes to Nision’s dialogue. “Author mentioned something about elements and fakes? Let’s make mannequins dance to chemical bonds”!

Nisemonogatari episode 6

This post may contain copious amounts of Senjogahara Fascination. You have been warned. However it will not contain any Mayoi Fascination because that segment was shit. It’s almost a thing now with Nisemonogatari. Skip the boring conversation segment and talk about The Good Bits.

Nisemonogatari episode 3

Nisemonogatari episode 2

Well shit, I wasn’t planning on doing this. I wanted to blog Nymphogear, but the second episode had the audacity to develop a sense of self-awareness, which makes it a whole lot less funny to take the piss out of. I also wanted to cover Daily Dudes, but I’d probably just spend my time explaining […]

Winter 2012 Anime Season Preview

Ya’ll ready for another round of Senjogahara Fascination? Welcome to the world famous (not really) Cart Driver Season Preview. I usually kick off these posts with some sort of satirical mocking of the ‘everything sucks’ crowd, but since I shall be making a similar statement throughout the course of this post, it would perhaps be […]

Future Diary episode 7

After being given a week to think it over, I get what episode 6 was trying to do. It put Yuuki in the one place he thought he was comfortable and added the layer of unease and fear to it. It appeared on the surface like a happy, if a touch dysfunctional, family home, but […]
