Last season I saw a rather depressing number of people saying something along the lines of “I didn’t expect anything from Silver Spoon and was really surprised when it turned out to be excellent”. Then again, if you pick your shows based on pictures on seasonal charts alone, how were you supposed to know it […]
Tag Archives: What’s with all the pedophilia Japan?
I said last week that I was disappointed to see Arararagi back as the main character because it was refreshing to see the story from someone else’s point of view for a change. I was hoping for something similar to the way Durarara was structured, where every episode felt slightly different due to it being […]
Volume Count: 2 (finished) Every country seems to have their version of the materialistic, gossipy teenage girl stereotype. The details differ in minor ways, but many similar trends arise.

A quick run down of events in Nisemonogatari episode 4. Arararagi takes a girl to his room to ride his giant banana, and Arararagi takes a bath with a sultry naked blonde loli vampire. That is pretty much it. I think Aquarion’s level of sexual symbolism probably beats out Nisemonogatari, if you can possibly believe […]
The Reverse Thieves Secret Santa project is just like regular secret santa, except instead of getting receiving awful €5 gifts, your secret santa recommends an anime for you to watch based on your preferences shown on MyAnimeList. My secret santa didn’t study my list very well though. The first one they gave me was Mardock […]
