I've never really hidden the fact that I'm not a big fan of the beach. Whether it is the gritty sand, the salty/fishy smell, or just the sun and heat, there's not a lot of appeal for me. Likewise, I find beach episodes in anime largely pretty pointless so it is always pleasant to come across an episode set on the beach that doesn't feel like complete filler.

No magic banishing … Continue reading Midnight Occult Civil Servants Anime Review
A Sleepy But Satisfying Conclusion Mayonaka no Occult Koumuin Episode 12 This one ended as it began with Midnight Occult Civil Servants slipping away without fanfare or anything overly noteworthy; just a sense of a story going quietly about its business without putting on airs or drawing attention to itself. Whether or not you like … Continue reading Midnight Occult Civil Servants Review Episode 12

This is strictly my opinion so … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Uses of Dream Sequences in Anime
Welcome to October and the lead up to Halloween. I know Australia doesn't technically do Halloween but I find it a lot more fun than a lot of other holidays (less tinsel for one) plus Halloween lends itself to movie marathons.
