Some of you have been bitching about this site’s recent dearth of anime reviews:
“Nice review :p Need more anime reviews though, preferably of new ones!” – keke
“I came here with a dinosaur joke but forgot it in the time it took to read all this crap… Er, I mean excellent, award winning content.” – Yamcha
“Finaaaaly a non “filler” post of baka-raptor” – Laguna Loire
“Go back to blogging about how much Eli sucks. God, he’s so bad.” – Joe
“yayy, filler! XD” – blissmo
“Fucking hell, stop being a drama-queen and come back already, geez.” – A Day Without Me
I simply haven’t been motivated to write reviews of all the mediocre crap I’m watching lately. Nothing has really stood out (in a good way), except for these five shows:
The first episode of Mnemosyne was perfect:
- It was the earth-shattering meteorite impact that marked the end of this site’s pre-historic era
- I rewatched it at Otakon just to see first-time viewers revel it its awesomeness
Too much of the plot got crammed into the last episode. Otherwise the series rocks.
Kamen no Maid Guy
I hereby retract the first warning in my original review (the second warning still stands). Maid Guy kicks so much ass that I’m going to get a new license plate:
I’ll stick it on this new bike I’m getting.
Garden of Sinners
Garden of Sinners = Mnemosyne + Plot + Dialogue – Lesbians
|Well developed minor characters|
|Recurring random character(s)|
|Badass mid-episode transitions|
|Soundtrack by Yuki Kajiura|
|Catchy dance sequence|
|Themes of Hatred/Suffering/Revenge|
|Hilarious ambiguously gay dude|
|Stylish visual effects|
|A character vaguely resembling myself|
|Pimp in a white suit|
|Soft-spoken girl voiced by Mamiko Noto|
|Obligatory hot springs episode|
You might think that Kaiji and Akagi are two different shows. Wrong – they’re exactly the same: a male protagonist with a pointy nose must risk his life to out-gamble an insane old plutocrat. Just like Kaiji, Akagi has no female characters because the artist can’t draw them. Whenever he tries, they end up with sharp, jagged tits. However, unlike Kaiji, Akagi has a moé character:
Detroit Metal City
Detroit Metal City is the laugh-out-loud funniest anime I’ve seen in years. Unfortunately, it’s only a one-episode special.
DMC rapes your soul.
UPDATE: There’s more DMC for the raping. See comment #3.
