Manga Driver: Don’t Cry Girl

Volumes: 1 (complete) This manga came with a strong recommendation from a friend. Even though it’s a shoujo manga and shoujo and I don’t get on particularly well, it’s only 1 volume long and is about nudists, so I figured it was at least worth a shot. “Don’t Cry Girl” is about a teenage girl […]

Summer 2013 Anime Season Preview

It’s summer! That means swimming and beaches and swimsuits and hot firm bodies under the sun with their chests and their abs sweating with the heat and exhaustion and oh those firm, firm bodies… *cough* where was I? Oh right yes, anime! That medium that has nothing to do with swimming at all. Wonder how that […]

Anime Mirai: Arve Rezzle and Little Witch Academia

As a follow up to my reviews of the previous 2 years of Young Animator Training Projects, here’s my reviews of 2 of the newly branded Anime Mirai pieces. ZEXCS piece Arve Rezzle and the much anticipated piece by Trigger: Little Witch Academia. I did want to review Death Billiards, but that’s been sitting there […]

Spring 2013 Anime Season Preview

This is the 19th season preview listed on this website’s archives. 20 if I feel like counting the one I did for summer 2008 back on an old livejournal blog where I only covered about 3 upcoming anime and I predicted that Nogizaka Haruka’s Secret would be the next Haruhi Suzumiya. So I’ve been getting […]

Sasami-san@Ganbaranai episode 1 – Chocolate Apocalypse Nonsense

A quick recap of Akiyuki Shinbo’s career up until now by the totally unreliable Scamp. He started as an animator on Urusei Yatsura, because everybody from that era worked on something by Rumiko Takahashi. He then moved about a bit from JC Staff to Tatsunoko to wherever the hell he could get work as a director, including directing […]

Sword Art Online Episode 18: Flying on Immobile Wings and a Prayer

I cannot even begin to explain just how much trouble I had absorbing the information in this week’s episode. It’s not that it was particularly deep or even obtuse. On the contrary, Sword Art Online’s retained the same basic philosophy when it comes to exposition that it’s had since the beginning: If it doesn’t directly […]

Fall 2012 Anime Season Preview

And Lo’, the Lord did give unto him the 3 Laws of Season Previews: Everything is interesting until proven otherwise. Going in with a closed mind is the surest way to miss out on the Next Big Thing. There is no such thing as a sure-fire hit. Everything has a chance of sucking. Good staff […]

WHO IS IMOUTO episode 3 – We Are Imouto

Emerging from my pile of papers, like the chief editor of the Daily Days in Baccano, I analysed this latest piece of evidence. I needed to find the answer. This question that burned inside me harder than Shougo’s penis after eating a baked soft-shelled turtle loaded with garlic, eel and scorpion double virility seasoning, and […]
