Monogatari Series Second Season episode 22 – Half blood prince

As mentioned in the monthly roundup, I happen to be awfully busy right now. I’ve moved house and just started a new job so my life is really hectic. I’ve handed off the latest Samurai Flamenco post to one of my minions co-writers. Here’s Monogatari though, while it’s the weekend and I’ve still got unpacked […]

My Top 10 Favourite Anime of 2000

The characters in Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure did always look like they were on their way to the local YMCA. Thanks to doing my Favourite and Forgotten post series, I’ve filled out this list a little more comprehensively. However when I’m reduced to scanning the list of hentai aired in 2000 and thinking “at least one […]

Oh right there’s a new Precure

I got an e-mail the other day. Good Day [oh wonderful and handsome and amazing Scamp our lord and savoir], [I am aware of your gigantic intellect so you probably already know that] Smile Precure started last weekend. You should watch the first episode and [in all your glory and wisdom] post about why you […]

12 Days of Anime #11: Un-Go’s Double Episode

Un-Go’s first two episodes were infuriating. You could see that, behind the mystery of the episodes and the characters, there was a fascinating post-war society evolving where censorship had taken root in some of the strangest fashions. But the scenarios through which this backdrop was set were horribly paced episodic mysteries. A murder takes place […]

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 22

Are you the kind of person who shuts off the video as soon as the ending song starts playing? Did you do that for this episode of Steins;Gate too, even though the ending song was different and you probably should have realised that something was up? If you did shut it off, then quick, go […]

Kamisama Dolls episode 1

Brains Base have spread themselves a bit thin this season, doing 3 shows. Natsume is a third season of a fairly big seller for them, with their main man Omori Takahiro working on it, so it was obviously going to have a decent budget slapped on it. The second show is PenguinDrum, which is Ikuhara’s […]

Steins;Gate episode 7

For those who disagreed with my argument that Kurisu is a tsundere, they have declared it in the show itself. Kurisu being tsundere is now canon. Victory is mine! (Although this does bring up the point: If someone calls you a tsundere, how do you respond? If you say yes, then you’ve admitted you’re a […]
