From the New World Takes Itself Seriously

Sunday, January 19th, 2014

From the New World feels like it’s from the old world, in that it takes you back to a time when plot mattered and seriousness was considered a good thing. Nowadays everyone’s praising anime that “doesn’t take itself seriously.” It’s the non-blood-related sister of “it is what it is.” If you want mediocrity, by all […]

JoJo’s Mediocre Adventure

Tuesday, January 7th, 2014

I’ve seen a whole bunch of “Best Anime of 2013″ lists placing JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure at or near the top. Come on, 2013 wasn’t that bad. JJBA, while fun and stylish, has too many shitty fights to keep it from being great. Seriously, I haven’t seen this many shitty fights in a shounen anime outside […]

Umineko (anime) > Umineko (VN)

Sunday, December 29th, 2013

Remember how everyone was always bitching about the Umineko VN being SO much better than the anime? (Yeah, I know you could replace “Umineko” with any VN adaptation and hear the same bullshit.) I watched the anime. Then I read the VN. Then I rewatched the anime. Here’s the red truth: 1. The Anime was […]

Non-Psycho-Pass Shows that Need a Second Season

Saturday, October 26th, 2013

A few years ago, I listed a few Non-Haruhi shows that needed a second season. None of them got one. Haruhi did. It sucked. Now I hear that Psycho-Pass is getting a second season. Nothing good can come of this. Nothing. Why not give some of these other shows a second season instead? Umineko no […]

A Few Words about Otakon 2013

Wednesday, August 21st, 2013

I was a little younger and a lot less blind the last time I went to Otakon. This time I blue myself instead of getting sticky white stuff in my hair. What other changes would Otakon 2013 bring? THURSDAY I decided to book a room near a light rail station to avoid “event parking” rates. […]
