Schwarzesmarken: Space Bugs and Cold Wars and Intrigue, Oh My

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

Mahoromatic: A Very Gainax Magical Girlfriend Show

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

(Mecha March 2019) Fullmetal Panic: The Second Raid – A Chapter where everyone finds themselves again.

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.

Show of hands, how many people have heard of something called Robotech? What about actually watching it?

(Mecha March 2019) Armored Trooper Votoms: A new favorite mech show? Yes. Yes it is.

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?

Tiger and Bunny: A Fantastic, Western Style Superhero Story

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

Dragon Pilot: Creativity and Heart Prisoned by Netflix

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
