Highschool and Zombies: HSotD and School Live

Highschool of the dead and School Live are shows that I watched one after another because they cover similar plot ideas in different ways. I already spoiled you on what those two are, but the most interesting way of saying it is Japanese high schoolers fighting for survival in the middle of a zombie apocalypse….

Outlaw Star: Wacky Space Hijinks

It’s been three years since I’ve last watch Outlaw Star and it’s one off the most memorable and yet unmemorable shows that I’ve ever watched. I more than remember a lot of the story and its plot elements from when I originally watched in on Toonami unlike The Big O. It’s just that there is…

Summer 2018 in Review

Looking back at this season, I am still agreeing with a lot of things I said in my mid-Summer anime commentary. I do think that from a perspective of shows that appeal to me, this season isn’t as strong. If there are a few shows to watch, a season is good. Still, Spring 2018 was…

Perfect Blue: Thoughts After my Second Viewing

I would like to reiterate how lucky I am for being an anime fan that lives in the United States. Especially an anime fan that lives in the United States close to a movie theater that plays anime films more often than not. That increases my luck to insanely high levels compared to most people…

Lupin the Third: A Women called Fujiko Mine – Sexy Thieving Times

Show of hands, who has heard of the Lupin the Third Franchise? Maybe this exercise is pointless because this is a blog post scheduled weeks ago, but if you are an anime fan from the United States, I doubt you would have raised your hand anyway. That’s pretty sad, because Lupin the Third is such…

His and Her Circumstances: We are the same?

I started off this month with a Gainax show. What better way to end this month then with another one? I’m sure there are a lot ways that it could be better, but this is how I want to end this month. Originally, I had an idea of doing an Anno August kind of thing…

The Night is Short, Walk on Girl: Quick Thoughts

I’m so glad to have a good movie theater next to me now. Especially a nice, big one that launches anime titles in it. It’s not like I didn’t have one when I was in the Pacific Northwest, but Wichita had a movie theater that is a lot closer to me in distance and has…

Summer 2018 Anime at the Half Way Point

I’m just going to be honest here. I have dropped four shows since I’ve written my first impressions. -Holmes of Kyoto was a little too bland, didn’t have enough mystery, and a filler episode of Lupin the Third: Part Five did what this show couldn’t while being engaging. -Chio’s School Road was funny, but an…
