Tuesday’s Top 5: Opening Themes in 2017

Last year I wrote my list on the top opening themes of 2016 and unsurprisingly Yuri On Ice's History Maker took out the top spot. This year there wasn't a single stand out song that really stuck with me, but there were lots of opening themes that really matched their show so it ended up … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Opening Themes in 2017

Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card Episode 2: Tomoyo Knows What’s Important

Review: I have to say that while watching this episode I have the distinct impression I may have outgrown Cardcaptor to the point where not even the nostalgia lens made the first fifteen minutes of this episode feel like anything but dragging. We did get the initial buzz from Tomoyo who continues to know exactly … Continue reading Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card Episode 2: Tomoyo Knows What’s Important

March Comes in Like a Lion Episode 35: Here Comes The Sun

Review: This episode was adorable and emotionally stronger because even though Hina herself declares the situation over, she adds a 'probably' to the end of it. The scars of bullying remain and the fractures in the class don't magically disappear. The bullies also don't undergo some mystic transformation and see the errors of their way … Continue reading March Comes in Like a Lion Episode 35: Here Comes The Sun

Record of Grancrest War Episode 2: Some Nice Touches This Week

Review: It is amazing how when you are expecting bare mediocrity that an episode that is still only passingly better can leave such a good impression. I read some fairly negative reviews of this second episode prior to viewing it so my already low expectations for this sank lower before I'd even started which left … Continue reading Record of Grancrest War Episode 2: Some Nice Touches This Week

2000 Posts!

And we are here! This is post number 2000 for 100 Word Anime and I felt that was worth celebrating. Okay, I know not every post is a gem and this also counts posts just reminding people to vote so probably the number of actual posts is a little lower, but I'm still blown away … Continue reading 2000 Posts!

Junji Ito Collection Episode 2: Not Much Improvement But Setting A Tone

Review: While I know I was hoping for something a little more like true horror from this series, episode 2 reveals two more kind of twisted tales that work well enough but never really do more than just intrigue at the possibilities they may have contained. With pacing and visuals handled as they are, even … Continue reading Junji Ito Collection Episode 2: Not Much Improvement But Setting A Tone

In Case You Missed It

And we're back for another week. The winter anime season is rolling along, I'm back at work, and it is all business as usual. There's just over two weeks left before we reach the end of the count down so those who have been curious don't have much longer to wait. As always, I've read … Continue reading In Case You Missed It

How To Keep a Mummy Episode 1: That’s Adorable and I Want One

Overview: Sora receives a parcel from his dad but is apprehensive about opening it given previous gifts from his father have been unusual to say the least. Fearing the worst, Sora is surprised when the contents of the coffin is a tiny mummy that is also a bit of a crybaby. Review: I have no … Continue reading How To Keep a Mummy Episode 1: That’s Adorable and I Want One

Death March To The Parallel World Rhapsody Episode 1: This Is My Experiment

Overview: With that title you would have to know there's a light novel of this one, and apparently a manga, and what do you know, it's another isekai story about an over-powered protagonist trapped in a game. And if you've watched any of the promotional material you probably already know a harem is incoming. That … Continue reading Death March To The Parallel World Rhapsody Episode 1: This Is My Experiment

Inquiring Minds Want To Know

A new year should mean something new for the blog and I've been wanting to add a different type of post for awhile so  I decided it was time to get in and do it. And so I am adding an 'ask' post (imaginatively titled 'Inquiring Minds Want To Know') where I will respond to … Continue reading Inquiring Minds Want To Know
