The funny thing about Kyoto Animation

Image Cred­it: koba from Pix­iv I real­ize that I may be beat­ing a dead horse, but I’m still (after all of these years) baf­fled at KyoAni’s busi­ness prac­tices. They’re just so bizarre and sim­ply do not match what your typ­i­cal busi­­ness-mind­ed per­son would think of when you say “mak­ing a prof­it from pop­u­lar­i­ty.” This is […]

Cardcaptor Sakura 【HD Rewatch】15

Hey beau­ti­ful, whatcha’ doin’?” Saku­ra and Kero get into a fight, lead­ing to Kero wan­der­ing off on his own lit­tle adven­ture, under some­what invol­un­tary cir­cum­stances (a.k.a. get­ting crazy drunk off of alco­holic choco­lates). Remind you of any par­tic­u­lar recent ani­me series? 😛

Hyouka Final Impressions

Well, Hyou­ka’s final­ly end­ed, and as I expect­ed from an ani­me based on a nov­el, it leaves the series open for a con­tin­u­a­tion. Now all that’s left is for KyoAni to take one up along with tons of oth­er series they need to con­tin­ue.

Hyouka 21

Episodes cen­ter­ing around Valen­tine’s Day usu­al­ly tend to be all flow­ers and sun­shine, maybe even com­i­cal. Sur­pris­ing­ly, Hyou­ka man­aged to make its Valen­tine’s Day episode a spi­ral of emo­tions. It was par­tic­u­lar­ly jar­ring to see Chi­tan­da act angry or depressed about any­thing, at least. Or see­ing Satoshi going about some­thing in an extreme­ly dick­ish and […]

Hyouka 20 — No awesome thigh scene here

Me on Sun­days. Man, Houtarou. It’s pret­ty obvi­ous that you and Chi­tan­da want it both ways. And it’s espe­cial­ly obvi­ous in this episode, where Chi­tan­da was will­ing to remove her obi in front of you. Too bad Kyoto Ani­ma­tion did­n’t try to top the sit­u­a­tion that hap­pened in CLANNAD, where instead of an awk­ward and […]

Hyouka — Houtarou is not an ordinary human

Not only was episode 19 a haven for Houtarou/Chitanda hints, it also sup­ports my the­o­ry that Houtarou is sim­ply not an ordi­nary human being, even by ani­me stan­dards. The con­nois­seur of strange­ness, Haruhi, may even agree with me. Seri­ous­ly, this kid makes a com­plete­ly out-of-there guess about a mun­­dane-sound­ing announce­ment at school being relat­ed to […]

Hyouka 17

The con­clu­sion of this “School Fes­ti­val arc” caught me by sur­prise. I did­n’t expect Hyou­ka to pull off some­thing rather this com­plex. It took three sub­plots of the pre­vi­ous episodes that were seem­ing­ly unre­lat­ed and man­aged to weave them togeth­er to into a con­clu­sion which focused on one cen­tral theme, expec­ta­tions. And it did it […]

Hyouka 15

After a few episodes of fes­ti­val fun, the mys­tery hov­er­ing below the noses of our beloved Clas­sics Club final­ly shows itself (well, it already did, but now they actu­al­ly give a damn about it lol). This is real­ly the type of episode of Hyou­ka that I enjoy watch­ing and I’d say this was one of […]
