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 […]

Tank Tactics pt. 3: A day at the Races

Welp. Girls und Panzer certainly one-upped themselves with this fight. They’ve managed to do a lot of things right, and even though they have several parts rather wrong, it’s still a great and entertaining effort. Unfortunately, the deciding moment is pretty much a clone of Ooarai’s match with Saunders. What’s special about this match is […]

Tank Primer pt. 4: For Pravda! For the Motherland!

This installment of the tank primer series covers the Russian team, which fields a total of 15 tanks! My happiness with this team’s makeup and tactics is only surpassed by my love for the fact that they sang Katyusha in Russian. Now if you’ll excuse me I have to go put it on loop while […]

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 […]

Tank Tactics the 2nd: America Strikes Back

In which I go over the use of informational warfare in the Ooarai vs. Saunders match. That drone could have decided that match. And in a way, it did. The match starts off with the M3 Lee scouting in a forest in what seems to be the right flank. They see a group of enemy […]

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 Tank Primer pt. 3: Saunders team

In part 3 of this primer series, we take a look at the all Sherman team fielded by the “American” school Saunders. The M4 (Fun fact: The Americans originally only gave the tank its number designation. It was the British who, in thinking it would be confusing without one, dubbed the American tanks with names) […]
