The ShizNat in the Rye

Thursday, July 31st, 2008

The ShizNat in the Rain Blame this post on Michael: Michael: I’m trying to get a bunch of anime bloggers to write about The Catcher in the Rye. We’ll all read each other’s posts and laugh and dance and be merry and gay. I know it might sound like a circle-jerk, but trust me, it’s […]

RIP Randy Pausch

Tuesday, July 29th, 2008

Yeah, this is another blatant filler post. Deal with it. Professor Randy Pausch died on July 25, 2008 of pancreatic cancer. For those of you who don’t know why he’s worth an entire filler post, check my sidebar. Yeah, I know it’s shocking, but some of you don’t visit my homepage anymore now that I […]

Evangelion 05-06: Rei vs. The Giant Cube

Saturday, July 19th, 2008

This double-episode starts off with a flashback. Booooooooooring. But this is the good kind of flashback: the kind that explains why people are dead/injured/otherwise brutalized. Awesome! Rei’s robot goes berserk. It punches the wall and ejects her. The Evangelion unit punches the observation booth where Shinji’s father is standing. Does this imply emotional tension— Let’s […]

Did I mention Kure-nai sucks?

Saturday, July 12th, 2008

Picking up with the same three categories from last time: 1. The Plot is still Crap The ending was terrible: [spoiler] Murasaki, who’d supposedly given up on her freedom, conceived and brokered the most convenient compromise in the universe within minutes of Kurenai’s implausible yet predictable victory. Benika suddenly became the weakest character in the […]
