First Impressions on Highschool DxD BorN – Jiggly Jiggly Hell

Admittedly, watching my twitter feed transform into Hestia Channel 24 over the last couple days, I grew worried as to how the venerable DxD would respond to this sudden challenge. But I was shown the full extent of my folly, because ol’ Haremking promptly displayed it takes more than just one episode of boobage to teach your daddy how to fuck.

Closing Thoughts on Dog Days” – Orion’s Dog

dogdays3_1

Waking up to the fact that it’s over.

The weekly speck of light that was Dog Days has ended once again. The third season wasn’t as strong as the second, as it prioritized introducing new characters and expanding the setting over focusing on the existing cast, and wound up biting more than it could chew with just a single cour. The action had some really slick and cool moments, but they went and served the most exciting story arc first which worked against the ones that followed. Although personally, I found the biggest disappointment to be the lack of another Shinku-Yukkii body swap episode.

Closing Thoughts on Log Horizon 2 – The Final Adjustment

loghorizon_final6786

Having to marathon the last five episodes, I was tempted to just rather call it quits. While the first half was the same tried and true stuff as the first season, the second cour of Log Horizon 2 was dominated by wishy-washy storytelling with some of the least interesting characters in the lead, and I didn’t expect it to recover. Thankfully the finale was able to remind me of the good times past.

Closing Thoughts on Cross Ange – Itahime and the Jelly Factory

The best Cross Ange.

Every now and then, as a critic I feel the need to readjust my tastes and senses to remain objective and on-par with the current level of excellence in Japanese animation, and like when calibrating scientific instruments, a zero-point measurement is needed. That’s where Cross Ange made its triumphant entré.

Closing Thoughts on Death Parade and The Rolling Girls

MFW The Rolling Girls’ finale.

Before tackling the Ange-Kraken, I might as well get these little ones out of the way. Both of these shows were surprisers, but only one truly held out to the end.

Closing Thoughts on KanColle the Animation – Nuts!

It’s over, thank god. The last episode may not end up being the worst of the lot this week, but it sure as hell was trying.

Closing Thoughts on Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso – C’est la vie

When I picked up KimiUso as a supplementary in the mediocre Fall season, I didn’t really expect to make it past the first eye catch, let alone sit all the way through two whole cours. But here we are.

Why Kancolle Anime Disappoints Me – Ms. Fubuki’s Wild Ride

planefairy645

Ever since I heard little birds sing about the Kancolle anime’s sales figures, I’ve been brewing up a little something in my mind while toiling on my miserable customer service job. With the upcoming trip to Japan and my car breaking apart faster than I can afford to keep having it fixed I was too preoccupied to try to put something down black on white, but this week’s penultimate episode finally got the ball rolling.
