Duel Savior: Berio! (.….……)

The… writ­ing of this route. Okay… so. I must say, the begin­ning is a bit odd. Espe­cial­ly with how much sex hap­pens almost imme­di­ate­ly. By the by, if sex freaks you out, aban­don ship. Right now. There is quite a bit of it. Way freak­ing ear­li­er than I had ever expect­ed. I think part of […]

Da Capo II: Scenario Reviews

Two moe sis­ters? Oh, which to choose! Fol­low­ing Wahfuu’s run of Da Capo III, final­ly clear­ing all of the sce­nar­ios in Da Capo II made a cer­tain someone’s pres­ence in Da Capo III a lot more under­stand­able. Not sur­pris­ing with visu­al nov­els: where­as I found no inter­est in con­tin­u­ing the mess of an ani­me that […]

Haiyore! Nyaruko-san 09

Typ­i­cal body switch episode. When you’ve seen it on Shaku­gan no Shana, you’ve seen it on all of ’em. This show is so mind­less it hurts. No notable Japan­ese pup-cul­­ture ref­er­ences that I can men­tion, aside from that one scene that looked sus­pi­cious­ly like Code Geass. All I can say is that this episode is […]

You Can’t Fool Me Twice! (Puella Magi Kazumi Magica: The Innocent Malice)

So I just got around to read­ing Puel­la Magi Kazu­mi Mag­i­ca: The Inno­cent Mal­ice, up to the lat­est chap­ter. Suf­fice to say, it starts out pret­ty hap­py, but since I’ve watch the orig­i­nal Puel­la Magi Mado­ka Mag­i­ca ani­me series, the quick shift to utter dark­ness did­n’t catch me off guard this time around. I have […]

Still stuck in Halloween (Ibitsu)

Holy effin’ balls. This is the creepi­est man­ga I’ve ever read. No bull­shit. Screw Hig­urashi. Screw Bat­tle Royale. Screw that High­school of the Dead BS. This is true hor­ror on black and white pages. I rec­om­mend every­one to kill their lights and read this (unless you some­how man­age to get a hold of the actu­al […]

Shiki 05

More plot-ori­en­t­ed shows should add an ele­ment of sur­prise to their shows and drop the episode pre­views alto­geth­er like Shi­ki. We all know by now that episode pre­views usu­al­ly spoil the crap out of us. Case in point: Dur­ing last episode’s cliffhang­er, I thought Tohru was going to die. At the start of this episode, […]

Shiki 04

The look on Nat­suno’s face sums up my thoughts. Damn, this show is doing a good job at mak­ing me tense, espe­cial­ly this episode. Return of the dead!
