natsumeova2e

Review: While the first OVA didn't really do all that much for me in terms of bringing on the usual Natsume feels, this second one kind of nails what I love about Natsume.

Review: After this episode I had to check on MAL to see if we knew how many episodes this show was supposed to be because that felt like story over.

Not sure what else this is about at this point or whether it is going to … Continue reading Alice & Zoroku Episode 1

Flip Flappers Episode 4 Review: They really are pushing the Alice in Wonderland theme at times and the inclusion of a tea drinking scene and the design of Papika's 'house' just kind of reinforced that this episode. Of course, they are also pushing all and any symbolism to do with illusion and the idea of … Continue reading Flip Flappers Episode 4
