Mahouka – Irregular at Magic High School episode 8 – He can fly too

It’s a new arc. The boring last arc has ended. All the people have been promising us that this gets better. I’m sure it will start now. We’ll no longer get Tatsuya being absolutely perfect at everything. No more lengthy explanations for how magic is done that bore the living shit out of everyone. No […]

Irregular at Magic High School episode 3 – This probably won’t last long

Oh I don’t know, how about in every single way possible? After live-tweeting all three episodes of Irregular at Magic High School and having an amazing amount of fun with this poorly written pile, I ran a little informal poll to see if people were interested in hearing me blog this. The result for which […]

Chaika the Coffin Princess episode 1 – Unicorn guts

While there are little niggly things about the first episode of Chaika that could only be called as “fucking anime bullshit”, I was quite impressed by the structure and storytelling capabilities of this episode.

12 Days of Anime #10: A Fake Incestuous Wedding

In an hour and a half, they manage to completely bulldoze the meager foundation of joy that the series desperately clings to—by which I mean Kuroneko and Saori’s relevance to the plot. It plays out more like terrible fanfiction than an actual continuation of Oreimo’s story, with […]

Winter 2014 Anime Season Preview

Welcome to The Cart Driver’s World Famous Anime Season Preview: Winter 2014 edition. If you are a regular of these most prestigious of lengthy blog posts, you will know that I like to let my cynical side take over and run amok over Japan’s latest animated offerings. Not this season though. This season looks quite […]

Eccentric Family episode 11 – Sandman

Normally these two brothers are hard to take seriously as villains. Even when they’re locking little boys in garages to starve to death and capturing animals to be brutally slaughtered and devoured, I still can’t take them seriously. But turn one of them into the Sandman villain from Spiderman with the creepiest giant morphing head […]

5 Light Novel adaptations announced in one day – further analysis

The light novel publisher Media Factory, a subsidiary of the publishing conglomerate Kadokawa, announced anime adaptations of 5 of their light novel properties. Usually I cover this sort of stuff in the season preview, but the 5 titles in question all have very noticeable similarities and re-occurring traits. It would be remiss of me not […]
