Parasyte episode 1 – I have 7 eyes and 8 jaws, nice to meet you

I’m a huge fan of the manga for Parasyte and was cautiously optimistic coming into this anime. One thing I was a little afraid of was whether it would be full of censorship. Body horror is right at the core of Parasyte and stripping that out would diminish the horror these things are supposed to […]

Rage of Bahamut: Genesis episode 1 – Digital trading ginger afros

What do you get if you crossed Samurai Champloo, Pirates of the Caribbean and any generic fantasy story you wish to name? You would get Johnny Depp breakdancing on the back of a dragon. You might also get Rage of Bahamut, the new anime by Mappa based off a digital collectable card game. You can […]

My theory is that this is because nobody at Sunrise actually made Buddy Complex. It’s generally well known that […]

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.

Golden Time episode 1 – Animate like it’s 2003

I may have let slip in my season preview for Golden Time that I wasn’t terribly fond of Toradora, certainly compared to everyone else. That’s not to say I hated it though. It was above average, certainly better than most high school romance anime, and a whole lot better than everything else that’s not Nodame […]
