Haiyore! Nyaruko W 02-03: Monkey Business

I nearly laughed myself to death this week, I did not think anyone would have remembered Library Wars from back in the day when Impz still blogged, but apparently the production staff remembers love for it. However, I cannot help but be a little disappointed that the protectors of the Celano Library were squaddies with […]

Haiyore Nyaruko-san W – 01: There is No Escape…

Hell quarter is over for me but Mahiro is going to be in a very special place for another season. Nyaruko is still set on the plans of conquest and is already declaring her total victory to be inevitable. Still I do wish that they were stuck in some alternate dimension where they are in […]

Minami-ke Tadaima – 08: Veggie Tales…

Well I suppose the post for the older episodes can wait because it isn’t often that Hayami-sempai is the one on the wrong end of Hosaka. I am all for healthy eating but I think that the Headless Horseman is advancing some wicked vegan agenda. Nevertheless with less tourists heading to New England these days […]

Notes on Being an Adult: Where the Nine Hells Can I Find a Time Machine?

So I am not really dead yet but I have managed to fall off the face of the Earth for the better part of two months now. No, I am not calling it quits but it seems that EO and Hana are having a merry old time sipping tea with the Queen of England. Hopefully […]

Girls un Panzer 07-08: Upgrades, the Musical

I got caught up with work last week, but now is a good a time as any to celebrate the addition of a Char B1 and more importantly the upgrade to Ausf F2. The KwK 40/L43 is a major upgrade from the 75 short, I would have lobbied harder for a KwK 40/L48 but at […]

Girls und Panzer – 06: Firefly

It all came down to two shots and timing…and generous amounts of overaggressive stupidity on the part of Arisa. Kei is okay, but I am not a fan of fighting fair simply for the sake of it, and the rules did not cover radio intercept. The way I see it if the other side is […]

Girls und Panzer – 05: The Fifth Freedom

Since Maid cafes seem to be dying out in the US I hope we get a panzer café fad going. After all you can’t possibly construe panzers as degrading, and who wouldn’t want to smell the sweet scent of cordite and motor oil while eating cake? Saori seems to be a fan and Mako can’t […]

Girls und Panzer – 04: Tanks Over Flowers

As I had foreseen, the Ooari tanks were driven from the field by St. Gloriana. I could not be happier that the gaudy paint schemes on the Oorai tanks were the instrument of their demise along with Mom’s horrendous aim. Team Teapot saw the StuG III a mile away, any hope of a stealthy ambush […]

Girls und Panzer – 03: Panzer Melee

No one is going to mistake this mock battle for Pegasus Bridge, but Mako had the right of it in that it wasn’t so much that Kampfgruppe Miho won but that everyone else lost. Ami was just far too kind to rip her rookies, but their overall combat performance was awful. I can forgive the […]

Girls und Panzer – 02: The Great Panzer Fetch Quest

There are times when I wish you really could just find reparable tanks just about anywhere, but the sad reality is that knocked out tanks are very prone to have unexploded ordinance in their hulls. Thankfully the Great Tank Fetch Quest ended with everyone in one piece and while they Type 89 is barely worth […]
