Friday’s Feature – What Do You Mean Spoiler?

I've been wondering this for awhile; how much information can you give in a write up or a review before you enter spoiler territory? And even if you do tell people what something is about, or what happens in it, does that actually spoil the watching of it? Keep in mind, I'm not discussing murder … Continue reading Friday’s Feature – What Do You Mean Spoiler?


The Morose Mononokean Episode 13

Review: The episode is called 'The End' and while it certainly ended the crisis with Ashiya's vision it didn't really offer any other insight or resolution. That and they kind of just gathered every character together and used their emotions to solve the problem. Really? Anyway, the final episode ends much the way the show … Continue reading The Morose Mononokean Episode 13

Cheer Boys Episode 12

Review: While I liked that the focus of the episode was on self-reflection and the journey travelled rather than winning a national tournament after less than a year as a team, the note book gimmick fell kind of flat. It just felt like if they actually tried this someone would have grabbed the book and … Continue reading Cheer Boys Episode 12

D Gray Man Hallow Episode 13

Review: As a season end this was kind of lame (assuming 13 episodes is season end). Nothing is resolved and we have one character on the run, another one returning from being on the run but not really re-joining the team and two characters still in enemy hands but then again, I never expected anything … Continue reading D Gray Man Hallow Episode 13

Momokuri Episodes 25 + 26

Review: This went much the way you would expect, though the scene change to a hot spring was kind of out of left field. While we had already done pool and beach it didn't seem like the show had any way to contrive a hot springs visit. How I underestimate anime sometimes. Apparently you can … Continue reading Momokuri Episodes 25 + 26

Hitorinoshita Episode 12

Review: It is very hard to take an episode seriously when it begins with a character being attacked by and then being up a panda. Sorry, but after twenty more minutes of old dying guy telling story I was still stuck on the whole fact that the best way they could show us Houhou toughing … Continue reading Hitorinoshita Episode 12

Post Number 500

It really doesn't seem plausible but I just hit post number 500. So I invited some friends to celebrate with me. Actually, I'd like to invite all my readers to celebrate with me because without you there really isn't any point to any of these posts. So a big thank you! And hopefully we'll all … Continue reading Post Number 500

Kimi ni Todoke Series Review

Overview: Sawako has been isolated for most of her school life. Mistakenly called Sadako (like the character in the Ring), rumours of her being able to see ghosts and generally be weird have forever circulated, not aided by her strong introverted nature and fairly creepy demeaner when in social situations. Noticed by the class' Mr … Continue reading Kimi ni Todoke Series Review

Tales of Zestiria the X Episode 12

Review: Well, aren't we all glad of second season announcements. Except that it leaves us with pretty much no resolution. Okay, Alisha is fine. A bit too fine given how much blood she lost. You would think it would take her longer to be up and bouncing around but at least she didn't die. Actually, … Continue reading Tales of Zestiria the X Episode 12

Tuesday’s Top 5: Supernatural Anime

I am a big fan of horror and supernatural stories in general and I do love a good horror or supernatural anime (for the sake of this list I've excluded stories that deal with Japanese folklore as that is going to be a whole other list at some point). So this list is my top … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Supernatural Anime
