Last year I was too busy not watching anime to commemorate The END DAY. This year I’m writing a double post to make up for it. Nodame Cantabile: Paris-hen The first season of Nodame Cantabile (++) told an excellent story. More importantly for the purposes of this post, it told a complete story. There was […]
“Anna and the Snow Queen”, the most uninspired Japanese title since “Wanda and the Colossus“ I first watched Frozen in a cheap theater pretty late into its U.S. release.

I finally got around to reading Black Cat in its original form of matter. As expected, it was […]
Although I’ve never cared about anime seasons, I do occasionally get bored enough to take quick glance at season preview charts. A few years ago, a peculiar title in the top right caught my eye. Halted? Whatever for? I dug around to find this anime, but all I could find was the J-Drama. No sale. […]
