Psycho Pass Season 2 episode 11 (finale) – Let’s never speak of this again

I hope this upcoming anime movie being written by Butch Gen treats season 2 the same way shounen franchises treat its steps into theatrical movies. They introduce a bunch of characters for that movie and that movie alone, they all either die or leave over the course of the movie, and then nobody speaks of […]

Psycho Pass season 2 episode 6 – Blow up everybody

Psycho Pass has become the kind of show where I have some misgivings while watching the episode but generally enjoy it, probably because it has lots of things blowing up. But then I go eat dinner, think the episode over, sleep on it for a bit and suddenly wake up yelling “why the fuck does […]

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 […]

Psycho Pass episode 14 – Bystander Effect

Apologies for the lack of non-Psycho Pass posts from myself recently. It was that time of year with a bajillion deadlines, but they’re all past now so I should be able to stretch my reviewing muscles with posts on Full Metal Panic, Mardock Scramble and Cat Returns soon-ish. In the meantime, I have been appearing on Bakacast […]

Guilty Crown episode 2

I had to scale back my expectations for Guilty Crown after episode 1. Instead of anticipating the greatest anime ever, I now had to hope that it would add some depth to the already impressive presentation. Episode 2 looked at these new levels of expectation and decided the best method was to destroy all hope […]

June Roundup

Nothing particularly newsworthy happened this month in the world of anime. Well, except that I bought Baccano wooh! *cough* OK, anime ratings time.

May Roundup

Closest thing to news this month would be the beginnings of the self-enforcement of Bill 156. However the only manga being shoved up to 18+ were smut like Aki Sora. Now perhaps this isn’t the ideal approach to such a subject, but when the only stuff being affected are smut, then I find it really […]
