Space Battleship Yamato 2199 – Episode 22: Out of the frying pan

This episode was what I expected last week’s episode to be. A mostly calm cool down episode dedicated more to character development and some fun moments here and there instead of spectacle. That being said, a lot of the developments from last episode made its way into this episode. All the stakes and political intrigue…

Netflix Watches: B: The Beginning and Children of the Whales

I’m beginning to separate Netflix Anime and any other anime that will appear on Netflix. Why? Because Netflix decided to be special. Instead of simulcasting shows, except for that one show that will be reviewed on this segment later and was simulcasted almost everywhere except the United States, they release each of their shows in…

Winter 2018 in Review

Here we are again, people. Caught in between two anime cycles again. (Or if you are a Babylon 5 fan, in between the tick and tock). Winter 2018 was a solid season, despite the questionable first impressions I had. Even without the shows that carried over from the season before it, there are seriously great…

First Impressions: FLCL Alternative (FLCL 3)

A surprise thing happened on April Fools. FLCL Alternative’s first episode premiered on Toonami at midnight instead of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders. It was in Japanese with subtitles too, which was amazing. I, being a crazy person that had to wake up early in the morning on a Sunday and came home from an…

Darling in the FranXX and Mech Shows in 2018

Since most of my Mecha March material is looking toward the past, let’s break the mold of that and talk about the other Christmas ghosts. You know, the present and future. As of right now, 2018 is a lot better of a year for mech anime then the previous few. Why? Because there are going…

New Dominion Tank Police: Hilarity with Heart

Ok, maybe this isn’t technically a mech show. But hey, it has people piloting machinery of some kind. Close enough, right? Fine, fine. This is totally something that I chose to watch because it was another adaption of a Shirow Masamune work and I’ve been insanely curious about it for a while. For those of…

Psybuster: Science vs the Environment

Yet another blind buy here. I bought this during Right Stuff’s holiday sale alongside GoShogun and His and Her Circumstances. Blind buys are always a hit and miss kind of thing, and this show was definitely a miss. Still, how was I supposed to know? Still, I think it was definitely worth the watch. There…

The Big O: Negotiations with Giant Robots

Hello everyone and welcome to my first installment of Mecha March. How this is going to work is that I am going to have one review of an older mecha series posted every Friday. There may be some other discussion posts that are mecha themed along the way and maybe some other surprises. All that…

Over the top talk: Thunderbolt Fantasy and Dragon Ball Super

Ok guys, I want to level with you. I had two shows that I wanted to talk about, but didn’t know if I had enough thoughts to write a post about each of them. So because of that, I’m using one post to talk about two shows: Thunderbolt Fantasy and Dragon Ball Super. Thunderbolt Fantasy…

Fate Apocrypha: A Wonderful Mess

I know that I talked about the first half of Fate Apocrypha before on this post, but the second half finally appeared on Netflix a few weeks ago. It’s time to talk fate once again and with high chances on the forecast for me talking about fate again later this year. I know that I…
