Asobi Asobase: Making the Abnormal Normal (Again)

I always love how anime approaches normal, everyday activities. I know that fighting anime series always have characters that get inhuman amounts of bleeding, special fighting techniques that people can’t do including flying and energy waves, and people coming back from the dead, but those have always been extraordinary.  The same could be said if…

Bubblegum Crisis: An In The Moment Classic

Where do I start with this one? Do I talk about how this is yet another show that was on my watch list? This seems too much like my common approach and would be easy enough. What about the fact that it’s 80’s everything combined with science fiction references and adult females wearing robot suits…

Chihayafuru S2 and Reality

It’s been a while since I finished season two of Chihayafuru and I keep thinking it every day. It’s one of those series that left some impact on my life, so it’s not yet another series that I call done and move on to something else. I was a little worried that I wouldn’t enjoy…

Spring 2018 in Review Part 1

Hi Everyone. Since most of the shows that I am watching have ended recently and I have some stragglers still hanging around due to breaks, starting late, or having recap episodes in the middle of arcs, I am splitting this list into two parts. This one is going to be significantly longer in the amount…

Mars Daybreak: Pirate Treasure Adventure on Mars with Robots

Before I jump into talking about this show, I would like to thank Lita for making me interested in watching this show. Without her I would have never even heard about this little Jem. I mean, this show is from Studio Bones in the early 2000’s. Probably over shadowed by something like Scrapped Princess which…

Last Week in Space and Mechs: 6/11/18

Unlike Last week, this week’s mech and space shows were insanely good. Almost every single one of these shows built off of the mehness of last week and blew everything out of the water this week. Enough of this opening paragraph, let’s jump into these shows. There is too much to do here. Space Battleship…

Lost Universe: Sentimentally Doesn’t Account for Everything

Just like Full Metal Panic, this is another series that I tie to my lost brother. In a completely different way though, because not only did he make the Sword Breaker (protagonist ship) out of legos, he tried to get me absorbed into the series as well. Tried is the key, because when it aired…
