Spring 08 Impressions PART I

Three’s a good number. Kure-nai I was pleasantly surprised by this one. As I’ve mentioned many times before, I was kind of looking forward to this show, but had no real expectations. The character designs and atmosphere are all very well done, and the voice work seems solid enough....

I am allergic to cats but I love cat ears

JESUS CHRIST CAT EARS OH GOD Less cat ears but Kaede is still cute as hell <3  Man, these things are being re-released. Which means they were released once before. I feel like such a fuckup for not knowing these things even existed. I guess I’m too used to...

Comic Site Rant: LOVE JUMP

Original Post I am so very disappointed in this comic in every way. The art is lacklustre and the script is pretty… horrible. I just wanted to talk about Kaiji in some way before it finished its sub run, and do a general parody on the art style. You...

A look back at Minami-ke ~Okawari~

In a world… …where PiQ magazine sits in front of Otaku USA… …where titles like “Loveless” and “Absolute Boyfriend” are placed on the shelf with their covers facing outwards… …where “Dramacon” even exists at all. You would think there is no hope. But there is. There is hope. hope...

April Anime pt 1

Not much now. Will update when new things have started. Current Chii’s Sweet Home: Three minutes of stuff. Ghost Hound: I don’t really care about this one anymore. Almost over. Hakaba Kitarou: Subs have slowed down. Still decent entertainment with above-average art direction. Kaiji: HOLY SHIT TISSUE BOXES THIS...
