Review: Noucome (2013)

Cover Title

Beggars can’t be choosers. Since I’m the beggar right now, a job in retail for the holiday season is the best I can get right now. So after suffering the nightmare that is Black Friday and working all weekend, I finally have the energy, ideas, and motivation to write again! Speaking of choosing, have you ever thought about all the ... Read More »

Review: Dust: An Elysian Tail (2012)

Dust: An Elysian Tail. Humble Hearts. (2012). joystiq.com

Typically, when Americans try to imitate anime, they grab the wrong end of the stick. but every so often, someone figures out how that stick works and does it right. I can think of two instances where they demonstrate this. The first is the webseries RWBY by Rooster Teeth, which is another article for another day. The second is this ... Read More »

Review: Psycho-Pass 2 Episode 6

Posing for the camera is more important than doing our jobs.
Psycho-Pass 2. Tatsunoko Productions. 2014.

If there is one thing I love, it is explosions and Psycho-Pass delivers that in spades for the entire 20-minutes. With drones coming out of the woodworks like an angry swarm of bees, it time to think fast and run even faster. One issue that popped up was the energy supply of the Dominators and even though it sorta came ... Read More »

Review: Hitsugi no Chaika: Avenging Battle 6

Hitsugi no Chaika Avenging Battle - 06 - Large 25

Chaika’s time at the sea has come to end but not before ending off with a ocean-side BBQ which was filled with genuinely good moments without resorting to anime tropes or needless fanservice. Even the diving bit had the saboteurs being outfitted with the correct suits instead going all bikini. But all good things must end as Guy directs all ... Read More »

Review: Outbreak Company (2013)

Outbreak Company. Feel. (2013)

Dream with me. What if otaku culture become so big and wide spread that we have to elect an otaku president? What would they do? If your first thought isn’t to distribute anime and manga to a newly discovered magical world, then clearly we aren’t on the same page here because that is the tagline for this week’s anime of ...

Review: Psycho-Pass 2 Episode 5

featured

There are no breaks on the Psycho-Pass Hype Train and it’s just keeps on landing punches on the already battered MWPSB. Mika Mika, after seeing some serious shit go down, is at least reacting minimally on a physical level to the massacre of citizens caught up in Kamui’s scheme. It is nice to see her try to come grapple with ... Read More »

Review: Hitsugi no Chaika: Avenging Battle 5

feature

The first half of the episode reminded me a lot of Scooby-Doo with everyone in their own little groups running around the emperor’s secret base and checking out all the rooms. Among the highlights are obviously the two Chaikas teaming up and making do with improvised weapons before reuniting with their gundos and snake-swords. Their differing personalities, which are at ... Read More »

Review: Vividred Operation (2013)

Vividred Operation.  A-1 Pictures. (2013)

Now that Halloween is over, I can get back to anime that I actually know something about and watch. So, lets get back into the swing of things with a good old fashion magical girl anime! This week is Vividred Operation, an anime that is like Neon Genesis Evangelion and Madoka Magica wrapped up all in one but fails to ... Read More »

Review: Psycho-Pass 2 Episode 4

feature

This week, shit went down and it went down HARD. Psycho-Pass always had a biased gender slant when it came to the violence, practically against women. It’s not that the violence is any more severe towards female as both genders receive equal treatment under the guise of the dominators. The tendency is that the women are portrayed in a sexualized ... Read More »
