Irina and I return this week to discuss the latest adventures of the demon lord from another world, Diablo. Wow, he needs a shorter introduction. Can we call him 'D'?
Post sponsored by Lynn Sheridan Pattern established though perhaps the next episode might break it: Character arrives at door bringing problem, we have some slice-of-life antics, a fight scene that isn't really a fight scene, and then everybody is friends. If this anime were a drink it would a warm cup of milk.
This week Irina is hosting our random observations (and discussion) about Mars Red. Be sure to hop on over to her blog and check it out. You know how I kept saying that Mars Red is theatrical. Well, I did for like the two first episodes. I looked it up and it’s supposed to be … Continue reading Mars Red Episode 4 – The Kind Vampire

This isn't a rant or a hate post. Studio Trigger has put out some big name anime and even as someone who mostly has not enjoyed their body of work I can see that their work isn't garbage. From an animation and visual perspective most of their work is actually quite creative and beautiful. Rather, it is a post for me to explain why, despite their being plenty of good things about their anime, the vast majority have never hit their mark with me and why after only watching one episode of SSSS.Dynazenon I decided that there was no point in my even attempting to review it because I would end up saying much the same things I always say when I attempt to review works by Trigger.
Post sponsored by Ashley Capes. We transition into yet another time with 5 years passing and history being a little derailed but not necessarily in the way Matsumoto intended. Or maybe he did. I can't tell anymore. Either way, Vivy is off on another adventure.
Tuesday's Top 5 this week features Obi from Snow White With The Red Hair. There is no denying he has some scene stealing moments so narrowing it down to just 5 was really hard. Here we go, celebrating this great supporting character.
Rimuru is back and tis time our little bouncing ball of slime is... well he's finishing off teaching and then returning home to get into some political trouble before taking on mass-extermination of an army. It's a busy time. Be sure to read the full review.
