November 2020: First Impressions

First impressions are generally worthless. Case in point: the internet’s reaction to the first episode of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Gou. I figured I couldn’t do any worse, so I reviewed Onidamashi-hen and Watadamashi-hen.

My first impression of Haiyore Nyaruko-san was that it couldn’t possibly be more average. That impression hasn’t changed significantly through nine episodes, but it’s become a lot more fun after one of my viewers pointed out NyaruReferences. That now-defunct blog is truly a treasure lost to time.

Uzaki-chan Wants to Hang Out left some big first impressions on the internet, if you know what I mean. Too bad it’s pretty boring outside of the sexual humor. I really hope the next anime deemed controversial by western fandom is actually good.

Switching gears to some final impressions, I finally finished Muv-Luv Alternative and put up its long-awaited review. Next month I’ll follow it up with a video about how you can skip Muv-Luv Extra and Unlimited, filmed from Sadogashima.

I still remember my first impressions of Crystalis from when I was six years old and had never played an RPG before. It was a dumb little game in which you got a sword, killed some slimes, and called it a day. Only years later did I come to understand the concept of save points. Anyway, if there’s one RPG that I know relatively better than the gaming community at large, it’s Crystalis, so why not do a walkthrough? I’ll throw in a few random rants while I’m grinding, so if there are any topics you want to me cover, let me know, or I’ll talk more about politics.

2 references in Haiyore Nyaruko-san went over my head

  1. Hey I just wanted to say I was a fan of your site when I was younger and I’m glad to see you kept it up for all this time. I couldn’t remember the name though so I just searched for anime+maddox because your style reminded me of him.

    • Welcome back!

      I’m sure you’ll be glad to know that over the past several years I haven’t become everything I once hated, unlike Maddox.
