I don’t know why, I’ve just really loved that image lately.
Hello all! I’m Inushinde, proprietor of the not-so-illustrious Shinde Iie Anime Blog & Review, and as can probably be surmised from the introduction, I’ve had my writing talents bought out (asked for nicely) by a soulless corporate machine (Scamp) for all the booze and whores I could ask for (absolutely no compensation whatsoever), in something that you could say will “cart drive” the competition, which is a euphemism for whatever you want it to be. For those that don’t know me, I like to write as much as possible in painful depth about the series that I cover, in addition to random episodes or periodic reviews here and there, through the practice of inserting as many crappy analogies as I possibly can while still remaining vaguely coherent. To summarize my thoughts on the matter, I think writing about foreign cartoons should be an exercise in creativity, rather than a routine in drudgery.
My favorite anime are those that either make me think, that manage to contrast happy visuals with dark themes, or that give me plenty to pick apart. As such, Mawaru Penguindrum and Shiki rank comfortably on the top of my favorite series list, alongside such stalwart classics as Welcome to the NHK and Detroit Metal City. Also, Aria’s there, which is pretty fucking jarring. Alternatively, a show just has to be as stupid as physically possible to win my heart, so junk like Aquarion Evol and Upotte holds a very special place in my heart. In short, if it either makes me ponder my existence or involves mechs crying tears of happiness, I’m all over that shit.
As for my non-anime watching activities, I enjoy watching trashy films usually falling under the broad category of horror, or listening to music that could be categorized the same way by those of tastes more discerning than mine. That about sums me up in the briefest of terms, so look forward to me horribly mangling the context of your favorite shows on the one, the only, the Cart Driver.
