So a little backstory with this franchise. I completely dismissed Schwarzesmarken when it first came out just because it is attached to Muv Luv: Alternative . A series that I just didn’t care about when it started airing. Muv Luv just completely lost me about half way through it’s two cour run. Not exactly the … More Schwarzesmarken: Space Bugs and Cold Wars and Intrigue, Oh My

Last week’s post was dedicated to Kaiba and more exploration of Masaki Yuasa’s works. This post is dedicated in a similar manner, but to explore more of studio Gainax’s works. The strange thing is from everything that I’ve seen, Gainax has a lot of discography talked about for one reason or another. They used to … More Mahoromatic: A Very Gainax Magical Girlfriend Show
Last year, I ended my Mecha March session with the first season of Fullmetal Panic. With this post, I am now solidifying the tradition where I talk about one segment of this wonderful franchise in some capacity with The Second Raid. That means, despite the fact that Fumoffu doesn’t have any mecha in it, it’s … More (Mecha March 2019) Fullmetal Panic: The Second Raid – A Chapter where everyone finds themselves again.

To ruin the illusion of me writing about all these mech shows that are getting a review this month, I finished watching Armored Trooper Votoms in the middle of November last year. I think you can now see how far in advanced I’ve been thinking and planning for Mecha March. Armored Trooper Votoms is a … More (Mecha March 2019) Armored Trooper Votoms: A new favorite mech show?

I’ve already talked about Honda-san a little bit on my first podcast episode that you can find here, but I want to talk more about it with this little blog post. Is it me or was 2018 a more unique year then usual because it also included some entertaining, educational shows in it? I mean, … More Book Seller Honda-San: Educational and Funny
I’ve been trying my best not to get too nostalgic when writing my introductions to posts recently, but I can’t help it with Tiger and Bunny. Why? My nostalgia is heavily tied to this show because of my time at one of my alma mater’s anime club. I enjoyed a lot of shows from my … More Tiger and Bunny: A Fantastic, Western Style Superhero Story
I can’t say that Netflix taking series that I’ve been wanting to watch and releasing them two seasons later is the best thing that has happened to anime by a wide margin. Especially when today’s anime market mostly focuses on releasing anime episodes hours after they appear on television in Japan. Alongside it’s long running … More Dragon Pilot: Creativity and Heart Prisoned by Netflix
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 … More Outlaw Star: Wacky Space Hijinks
