First Alphonse Elric I’ve ever seen = WIN. I am rather amused to admit that this past weekend (August 8th – 10th) taught me something very interesting about myself: three days with no Internet access and no way of checking THAT is enough to drive me up the wall. I really, truly adore you traps, [...]
The Horror of Horror Well-executed horror stories are rare gems. I’ll admit that I’m no authority on the subject (ergo a quick departure from anime and manga as the centerpiece of discussion), but these days it’s just so damned hard to find a good horror movie that I practically trip over myself on the way [...]
Game-Based Anime: Hit or Miss? It is not often that a game-based anime embraces its inner game, and for good reason. Many are visibly forced attempts to fashion a second-rate story into a compelling screenplay, which sometimes works, but often not, especially if the director is not allowed enough creative license. Faithful adherents to a [...]
This episode draws a more solid connection between Takashi’s difficult childhood and his present situation. The connection was a bit unclear at times, but at least we are beginning to get a better sense of how he became the person he is today. What does it feel like to be able to see things that [...]
So. Incredibly. CUTE! …But don’t be fooled. When I said I was hoping that the next episode of Natsume would be better than the first in my last entry, I was being optimistic. What I had really hoped for is that episode two would be just as good as the first one, that it wouldn’t [...]
I can hear the fangirls kyaaing already… Funny thing when a supposedly plot-driven episode turns out to be a double dose of fanservice hiding in the bushes, don’t you think? Oh well, who couldn’t use a few extra laughs? Call me crazy, but Wagaya’s latest escapade struck me as a thinly veiled excuse to derail [...]
What Is It With Me And Youkai Anime? Every once in a blue moon, I’ll stumble across an anime that captures that fleeting mixture of wonder and lightness that you get when you gaze into the open sky from the top floor of a building, or listen to the silence of falling snow, or feel [...]
The Mighty Bargain Hunter stalks his prey. There are good fillers and there are bad fillers. Some build characters. Others build budget. Wagaya’s latest installment thankfully belongs to the former, pausing for a nice slice of life before the next story arc and giving new meaning to the expression ‘comic relief’. Kou-chan works overtime to [...]
Gloss. By some strange and cruel twist of fate, and despite a deluge of delicious words like ‘blaxploitation’ and ‘gentrisone’ from our readers, good old Impz managed to pull ‘Britney’ out of the hat… …Okay, so it actually wasn’t that bad. With some serious mind-stretching, I managed to glean a bit of insight from America’s [...]
