Cardcaptor Sakura 【HD Rewatch】 36

DREAMING DREAMING そして扉が… ひらくよ~ I real­ize that it’s already April 2nd in Japan, but since it’s still Saku­ra’s birthday/CLAMP Day here at least, I should get off my lazy bum and con­tin­ue with these posts! Now that our lit­tle detour in Hong Kong is over and done with, the sec­ond sea­son blog­ging of Card­cap­tor Saku­ra […]

Cancerous Ship Girls Rant: The Expansion

Image Cred­it: 蒼天空 from Pix­iv …Ill­ness when writ­ing that mess aside, I don’t think it need­ed to be any clear­er for com­pre­hen­sion. I was going to do anoth­er Card­cap­tor Saku­ra post or a Fate/stay night Unlim­it­ed Blade Works post, but in light of cer­tain reac­tions to my pre­vi­ous Kan­tai Col­lec­tion post from denizens of the […]

Cardcaptor Sakura 【HD Rewatch】 THE MOVIE

Saku­ra goes to Hong Kong! When we last left off on my rewatch-blog of Card­cap­tor Saku­ra, the first sea­son of the series had con­clud­ed with Saku­ra enjoy­ing her final moments of Christ­mas day. In the orig­i­nal tele­vi­sion broad­cast of Card­cap­tor Saku­ra, the ani­me was put on-hold until April 6, 1999 for its sec­ond sea­son. Gek­i­jouban: […]

Happy Belated Halloween! (Project Zero/Fatal Frame)

Big giant NO Hope every­one had a Hap­py Hal­loween! Though more than a day late, I felt com­pelled to hon­or the hor­ror fes­tiv­i­ties we had this sea­son using this hum­ble lit­tle Japanophile blog of mine in some way or anoth­er. Rather than div­ing into some biz­zarro hor­ror man­ga by the likes of Itou Jun­ji and […]

Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie [Shinpen]: The Rebellion Story

The suf­fer­ing con­tin­ues… My inter­est in active­ly dis­cussing Puel­la Magi Mado­ka Mag­i­ca died down sig­nif­i­cant­ly dur­ing the past cou­ple of years. Don’t get me wrong, I loved the orig­i­nal ani­me series and enjoyed watch­ing both of the Puel­la Magi Mado­ka Mag­i­ca The Begin­ning Sto­ry and the Puel­la Magi Mado­ka Mag­i­ca The Ever­last­ing Sto­ry films, but […]

The worst figurine of all time

DAT FACE Yeeeeeeeeah, the Euro­pean Col­lec­tor’s Edi­tion of Brave­ly Default: Fly­ing Fairy total­ly isn’t worth being jeal­ous over. What was Square Enix think­ing when they decid­ed to bun­dle this mon­stros­i­ty among the oth­er good­ies? Could­n’t they have got­ten Fig­ma? Or maybe even Alter? Square Enix, here’s some advice: what looks to be equiv­a­lent to a […]

Do I dare watch “Free!”?

OH DEAR GOD WHAT Now, as some of my read­ers might know, I have no prob­lems with watch­ing shows aimed at a more fem­i­nine fan­base. In fact, I love them as much as more testos­terone-rid­­den GAR shows that are on my list (Samu­rai Cham­ploo, Ten­gen Top­pa Gur­ren Lagann, Gao­GaiGar, etc.) But this. This is dif­fer­ent. […]

Namiuchigiwa no Muromi-san (Thoughts and Impressions)

Anoth­er series to get out of the way before I write about the cur­rent ani­me sea­son — frig­gin’ mer­maids on an acid trip, twelve min­utes each week. There’s real­ly only one way to describe this show, and that is: insane humor.

Fanime 2013 Overall Experience (and the horrors of Yaoi Bingo)

No, we did­n’t go to the maid cafe. T_T Truth be told, I was look­ing for­ward to going to Ani­me Expo 2013 dur­ing the ear­li­er parts of the year — going to Fanime again this year was some­what of a last minute thing. We end­ed up not hav­ing enough funds to afford going to LA […]

Duel Savior: Kaede (Puppies are adorable!)

Qui­et, Calm, Dead­ly. The Nin­ja, Kaede. The dark types are such fun some­times. The evil looks in their eyes, the dark sto­ic dead­pan in their voice, the ungod­ly fear that she might just kill you before you man­age to break through the evil fog of emo­tions. All this goes into a rather intense emo­tion­al expe­ri­ence […]
