Check-in Station Year in Review: Winter 2013 (the Warmth of Companionship – and Subpar Anime)

January 2, 2014 2 comments

With my Christmas post, I’ve already started my recap series for the year that I’ve dubbed End of Year Faffery.  My love of  British culture, and love the phrase “faffing about” is the inspiration behind this.  But don’t get the wrong idea.  Though I’m playing with concepts, presentation and ideas all the time on this blog; I’m seriously going through this blogs journey in anime throughout the entire year of 2013.  And I’m of course starting with the first season of the year, the Winter season.  After all, this blog is named the Check-in Station. It wouldn’t be appropriate for me to not not check-in at the end of the year with everything I’ve discovered, and experienced in world of anime.  Please enjoy, as I take on my journey through the year of anime, 2013.

I’m very neutral towards the Blood series in all its incarnations.  Usually it’s one of those things where I find the setting and the characters generally uninteresting, but I stay for the gore.  And I’m not that huge a fan of gore in my anime either.  Blood just does it so well.  And it’s not just about how they kill, but who they kill.  Everyone.  And without remorse.  So when I watched the TV series that set up this movie, I wasn’t terribly surprised or disappointed.  I found it barely decent overall.  But I had higher expectations for the movie, because it looked like it would cut past most of the garbage that hampered the TV series.  Does it?  Kinda, but it also comes with its own set of unique problems.

DonKangolJones’ Images of the Week: Sept. 12th (My Summer Vacation is Over, Thank God!)

It’s a miracle. I’ve stopped playing games and other forms of faffing about long enough to bang out a post! It may also help that the kids are back in school and this new budding sense of freedom has me excited.  Besides, summer isn’t exactly my ideal season.  Sure the beach was nice.  But the earthquakes and the tornadoes and the water spouts and the hurricanes… f*ck!  Someone on the east coast has somehow seriously pissed off Poseidon.  Oh well, it’s not my problem, yet.  It’s time for the images of the week.  I got ’em all this time. Anime, manga and the pervy pics!  Wooo!  Let’s do this. Read more…
