Tokyo Ghoul ep5: this is getting on the kinky side

 

The psychology of a character that would throw themselves away as food for the person they love. The desire and devotion of someone so in love with their carnal desires that they’d eat their own kind. The heart of a woman who’d poison herself just to have friends. I know there are plenty of people who’d love to strike this show off as boring or in lacking in interesting characters, and that’s fair. but I could not be more interested in seeing where the pieces of this puzzle fall.

Knights of Sidonia ep10: watch as your delicious world of ignorance melts away

June 17, 2014 1 comment

There are reasons for keeping things behind a locked door. Security, safety, secrecy, greed, even a slight buffer of time; all these reasons apply to this episode of Knights of Sidonia. And I think a hundred generations of humanity living on this colony has made people forget that sometimes that door is there for their own safety.

Secrets, secrets, secrets; this show has always been about Read more…

I’d like to give a great big thanks to Artemis of the Otaku Lounge for nominating me for the Liebster Award!  It’s a total honor!  I will repay her kindness by responding and passing on any nominations I can to what few aniblogs I know that qualify.

Spiral

December 13, 2013 1 comment

I implore you guys to check my associate, Predederva’s anime review of Spiral, an under-rated and mostly forgotten TV series from the early 2000’s. He does an excellent job of pointing out the benefits of looking past the curse of a production with crap animation to find an interesting, thoughtful and entertaining series.

Prede's Anime Reviews

Some anime skimp out on the plot, characters, and themes and try to get away with just spending all their money on top notch animation and beautiful artwork. The powers that be think they can get away with this, perhaps only by the skin of their teeth, if at least the production values shine. They hope that audience will be so enticed and overwhelmed that they won’t notice the anime is missing key components. Sometimes they do succeed with this underhanded technique. The opposite is also true; there are dozens of examples of anime with brilliant ideas, characters, or concepts that just can’t seem to get a good budget. These anime sadly end up looking very unpolished, but still manage to tell an excellent story. Spiral is one such example.  Looks are not everything; in fact I’d argue they’re one of the least important aspects to telling a good story.

Check-in Station: 500 posts Special

December 9, 2013 4 comments

Hey guys! As of the episode 10 post of Golden Time, I’ve hit an amazing 500 posts for my three (almost four) years of doing this for my own blog. I want to say thanks to any and everyone who has commented, viewed, reblogged or even retweeted my material. I’ve been doing this for as long as I have purely out of love, and a need to keep my mind active. And I’m honestly amazed that my modest blog has survived this long.

When I started, I had one goal. I wanted Read more…

AniFriday: (because keeping schedules is for NERDS!)

October 25, 2013 2 comments

This was originally supposed to be AniWednesday, then I started playing the video games and it became AniThursday, then I remembered I had stuff to do and work, so now it’s AniFriday.  It’s a good thing that I’m flexible about my own scheduling.

Anyway, this week I’m covering the more and more interesting to watch Arpeggio of Blue Steel: Ars Nova.  I’m blandly watching BlazBlue as it continues to do stuff while not caring if I know what or why it’s doing it.  Ms. MONOCHROME makes me wish I still had a budget for anime swag.  Tokyo Ravens makes me fondly remember something I now hate.  And Coppelion does it’s best to be the most dramatic, intense thing ever made (it is totally none of that).  AniFriday!  Let’s go!

This week’s phone wallpapers

October 21, 2013 1 comment

Just a little something extra I’m trying out for fun.  These are the wallpapers I’ve chosen for my phone.  I like to keep things fresh and switch up the imagery on a daily basis.  And to be honest, I don’t just use anime/manga related pics; I tend to use naked ladies as well.  But you’ll never see those pictures.  So here, enjoy these various images that I’ve gathered from across the internet or from artbooks.
