Check-in Station Year in Review: Spring 2013 (Where the Biggest and Best Come to Play)

January 9, 2014 4 comments

Welcome to the wonderful Spring season!  The season of juggernauts –  literally!  The more I heard about this season in previews, the more excited I got.  The Spring season was the reason I still looked forward to watching modern, new anime.  So without further hype and hyperbole, I’m gonna tell you the story of the Check-in Station’s journey through anime’s Spring of 2013.

Check-out Station: Karneval ep13 (I came here to see action and kissing)

June 30, 2013 2 comments

And daggonnit – I’m not getting any of that!

So here we’ve come to the end, of the season anyway. I have no idea if this will get another season, but I will say I’m a tad disappointed. Is it because I’m wading into unfamiliar waters? I rarely view josei, yaoi or any other material that is geared towards females or written by them. So perhaps my disappointment is due to misguided expectations and a lack of understanding. Then again, that hasn’t stopped me with other series, so get ready for some b*tching! Read more…

Karneval ep12: I’ll be your eyes, hands and feet, and we’ll be their nightmare

June 26, 2013 1 comment

And here I was sure that Karneval would just be a bland disappointment all the way through. And overall, I may still be right. But with these last two episodes, it looks like the show is going to blow its load like- well, I won’t be vulgar. Let’s just say that this show is taking the phrase, “save the best for last” to heart. Read more…

Karneval ep11: a pretext to do better

June 16, 2013 1 comment

I’ve come to grips with why I’ve yet to drop this disappointing show. It’s not because it’s bad, it’s not. And it’s not because it’s boring, though it certainly can be at times. It’s because of Gareki. If they don’t make his character awesome by the end of this it will be an unforgivable waste. At least this episode gives me the pretext to believe that that will be possible.

Karneval ep10: I’d appreciate full disclosure

June 9, 2013 5 comments

I have to say, I’ve completely underplayed a certain aspect of the story of Karneval.  But to be fair, this show has a habit of underplaying things.  And when I’m not sure if a character is dead or not, and it’s not because I don’t see the character die, then I think something is being done wrong.  There’s a break in communication.  With that cleared up, let’s move on.  Though you’ll have to forgive me this time.  As usual, I have a terrible member and this time I’ve lost my notes.  That’s right, I have and have always used notes.

Karneval ep9: the worst of luck

June 4, 2013 1 comment

Well, if that wasn’t a let down. Not the episode mind you, but Yogi’s non-rampage. Regardless, there’s still plenty to digest here as we see a bit how the “other side” of Karneval lives. Read more…

Karneval ep8: visions of Kurama dancing through my head

May 25, 2013 1 comment

What is going on?  First Majestic Prince, now this show?  Is episode eight the designated episode for bland shows to show out?  I’m not saying this is a great show, and the episode wasn’t spectacular either. But at least it had an interesting ending. Read more…
