Kure-nai: Crappy Plot, Crappy Show

Saturday, May 31st, 2008

I tried to be reasonable. I tried to be delicate. I tried to make a serious point with class and grace. What did it get me? A ton of inane comments ignoring all my arguments and reiterating the same hollow crap: Kure-nai is awesome and Plot doesn’t matter. The only one who didn’t whore himself […]

Five Manly Anime OP/EDs

Saturday, May 17th, 2008

Warning: First of all, this is a blatant filler post (I’m still on hiatus). Secondly, these are simply “Five Manly” themes, not “The Five Manliest” or “The Five Best” themes. If you want to bitch about an omission, keep it short & sweet (i.e. a link to the video and explain your pick through my […]
