Watashi ga Motenai no wa dou Kangaetemo Omaera ga Warui! (First Impressions)

Also known as “Spaghet­ti Spilling: The Ani­me.” ;_; I’ve read the man­ga for this series a long time ago, and as painful as it was to watch Tomoko fail count­less times to become pop­u­lar (in the same vein as watch­ing the main char­ac­ter from the Boys on the Run man­ga fail time and time again […]

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 […]

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.

Very first impression of Joshiraku…

WHY CAN“T I GET THE ENDING THEME OUT OF MY HEAD? Seri­ous­ly, I like the first two episodes so far, but I doubt the actu­al con­tent will con­tain any­thing that will stick to my head longer than the flip­pin’ end­ing theme. If the Momoiro Clover Z girls had the desire to con­trol the minds of […]

K‑ON! — 01

The wait for more Lord Haruhi brings along quite a hand­ful of pain towards my faith in Haru-ism, but it’s real­ly just a minor prob­lem when Kyoto Ani­ma­tion keeps on churn­ing out more and more win series to calm my patience down (No, Munto does­n’t count). As a slice-of-life fan, I just can’t get enough […]

Characters of 2007

A lot of us are look­ing back at which series are the most mem­o­rable this year for a vari­ety of rea­sons — the qual­i­ty of the sto­ry­telling, orig­i­nal­i­ty, niche gim­micks (moé, loli­ta, Shō­­tarō-char­ac­ters, A Drill That Will Pierce Through The Heav­ens, unnat­ur­al boob mea­sure­ments, etc.), and all that oth­er shit. HOWEVER! To me, what real­ly […]
