The Bad Guys Won, But There May Be Hope: Thoughts on the Ending of Shin Sekai Yori

Through the latter half of Shin Sekai Yori it’s been evident how terrible the human society of villages has been not just to their own people, but to the other major, intelligent inhabitants of the land. And even if Squealer’s rebellion was indiscriminate, one could definitely understand why he and the other bakenezumi did what they did. […]

Caught up and ready to go with another week’s worth of anime, I have to say that it was an eventful week for some of the shows I’m watching.

EO’s Weekly Revue – Week of January 28

Four weeks into the season and I still wasn’t sure what to blog, so I figured I’d go with EVERYTHING! Well, in a much shorter format, but basically, I’ll be writing briefly about every show I’m watching this season as it goes, which currently stands at: Maoyuu, Kotoura-san, Tamako Market, Shin Sekai Yori, and Minami-ke: Tadaima. So here’s my thoughts on […]

Secret Santa Review – Idolmaster

If your Christmas tree is still up, it’s not too late to post on Secret Santa! Every year for a while now, Reverse Thieves has done an anime Secret Santa project where you sign up, receive a person to pick three shows for, and someone else secretly gives you three recommendations. This year I gave […]

Kokoro Connect episode 11 – Fountain of Youth

New arc, and a new phenomenon affecting the characters. And a new revelation about Heartseed, as well as (possibly) the focus on Aoki that I’ve been waiting for. Characters are now reverting to their younger selves, a a preset time each day but at to a random age. Though it’s not that straightforward, as the […]

Kokoro Connect episode 10 (and brief remarks on 8-9) – Damn the Iori Torpedoes! Full Speed Ahead, Ms. Inaba!

The Kizu Random arc  has been a great ride, and in this post I’ll be catching up on recent developments and focusing on the culmination of the the arc, episode 10. First off, BAM! Take that, Iori fans! My ship now sails boldly into the future with wind in its sails and cannons loaded! Not […]

Kokoro Connect episode 07 – Let It Out

Losing one’s temper seems to be the easiest way for the new ‘unleashing’ effect to cause problems for the characters, and this week Inaba lets loose a lot after Yui falls into some sort of crisis. To my delight, the Kizu Random arc is focusing mostly in Inaba, and she was the crucial or central […]

Kokoro Connect episode 05-06 – A Troll Who Cares, and, OH DESIRE!

Two episodes in this post, and coincidentally it’s the end of one chapter/arc/whatever and the start of another one. Episode 05 brought out some big drama with Yui being the victim of a randomly-timed Heartseed intervention, which brought things to almost AnoHana-level drama. It was a high point of emotions that ended up serving as a nice […]

Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon episode 05 – Horizon On Three Minutes of Past Viewing (Part of the Horizon On Tits Project)

My reaction too. When 8dayswithout me started recruiting people to blog an episode each of Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon on her blog, Gar Gar Stegosaurus, I signed up to see what fun I could have with it. I’ve previously only watched approximately the first three minutes of the first season of the show before I dropped […]

Kokoro Connect episode 04 – So, This Happened…

So, another episode of ‘fixing’ people, but at least there was something waaaay out of left field that turned the episode into something else entirely. It’s an odd strategy for producing/writing a show, but hey, I guess it works! Start telling a pretty cliche story and then BAM! throw something incredibly strange out there that […]
