Rinne no Lagrange S2 07-08: Fists of Fury

Madoka prevails as she forces a truce between the onerous onii-chan leadership with a wonderful demonstration of force. Yes, someone somewhere is bemoaning how might should not make right, that person is an idiot better to settle things with fists, it’s not like talking got them very far anyway. Sometimes you just have to smack […]

Tari Tari – 08: What Happens to a Dream Deferred?

Sawa recovers physically from getting thrown off her horse, but she desperately needed an attitude adjustment. Thankfully Wakana was able to salvage one in a single episode, but I also have to credit Sawa’s dad for condemning a stuffy admissions officer to the Buddhist hells. I think that there are times that we react to […]

Tari Tari – 07: Foolhardy Woman of Determination

Wakana is readjusting nicely to her new leadership and mentor role in the choir club, but Sawa’s determination to achieve her dreams leads her to foolishness. I had hoped that Sawa would have had a more solid plan on reaching her goals but it seems that she really did not think this one completely through. […]

Rinne no Lagrange S2 – 03-06: The Yuri Iliad

It feels good to be really caught up, if there was ever a reason to be wary of hetero pairings in this show Yurikano gave us all a reason to ship MadokaxLanxMuginami more religiously. I find it interesting that the gate to Rinne can be opened with strong emotion but it seems that hetero thoughts […]

Tari Tari 05-06: Life After Death

Well between the weekend outage, two lost credit cards, a failed bid to buy a house, and a job rotation change I am certain that I am not dead though I do feel like a bit of a zombie. My woes however were nothing compared to the heartache Wakana had to go through. I wanted […]

Tari Tari – 04: Setting Aside Childish Things

So the Legend of Mahiru continues to grow as three singers from the West come to see Mahiru’s child. Not only does Mahiru have celebrity friends she also was responsible for a one hit wonder. Sadly it seems that Wakana is not too keen about trying to live up to her mother’s legacy. Certainly the […]

Rinne no Lagrange S2 – 02: Making Up by Making Out

This post is late but the KISSING was everything I hoped it to be. The war between Digigurio and Dizelmine now boils down to a war for survival, and to be fair there is no easy out since doing nothing would simply result in the destruction of both planets in one if not two super […]

Muv Luv Alternative – Total Eclipse – 03: TSF 0083 Plus

So now that Kyoto has been reduced to rubble and ruin it only seems proper that the UN get its shit together now that almost all of Eurasia has been lost. I am doing my best to avoid spoilers and the like and as a green horn I cannot understand how having a Top Gun […]

Tari Tari – 03: No Money

I guess Wakana is going to take a long while before she fully embraces her new friends, but quite why she is so apprehensive is a mystery though hopefully it will end soon. In the mean time she seems to have gained a new stalker who is likely an old friend of her mother’s. Unfortunately […]

Tari Tari 01-02: Band of Bards

I am surprised by the number of shows that have caught my interest this summer, usually this is the slowest part of the year but Tari Tari has managed to stand out a bit for me. It looks to be a more laid back slice of life series and while I feared that Wakana would […]
