Symphogear G ep3: bright, but not smart

July 22, 2013 1 comment

This show isn’t wasting any time throwing the opposing forces against each other so far this season.  I’m wondering how long this will last before we get a break for character development.  If we get a break for character development… do we really need it? Read more…

Symphogear G ep2: the climax isn’t the end

July 21, 2013 7 comments

Is there any point to what you crazy b*tches are doing?! The worst of worst situations, we have a group of angry, bitter terrorist Gear users with a crazy and greedy organization backing them up. I have a feeling simple world domination isn’t enough for a group like this.  Symphogear G episode two, let’s go! Read more…

Check-in Station: Symphogear G ep1 (we got a diva here!)

July 7, 2013 1 comment

Words have always escaped me when it came to Symphogear. They escaped me so much that despite several attempts, I could never do a close-out review for the series. I just didn’t have words for how batsh*t insane the finale was. So I’m watching this new season with great pleasure, as I hope this time around I can properly convey my feelings in regards to what I think was one of the best series and biggest of surprises of 2012. Let’s get started with the next season of Symphogear, Symphogear G! Read more…

Vividred Operation ep4: not my waifu!

Episode 3

It’s getting a little silly to say that I’m impressed by this silly show week after week, but I am. It’s got that same classic “friends are friendship and power” vibe that a lot of mahou shoujo have, but it doesn’t beat you with it as hard as other shows do. And I think this episode will strike home for a lot of otaku. It’s all about protecting your waifu. If your waifu was a giant satellite power plant.  HA! Read more…

Vividred Operation ep3: Chesto!

Episode 2

I’ll keep most of these post quick and to the point, because I don’t think this is a show that merits getting too deeply involved. Read more…

Vividred Operation ep2: feels like ep1 got its big sister ep2 to come outside and punch me in the face!

Episode 1

Is this the same show I pooped on just an episode ago? All over my Internets I’ve been seeing gifs and comments commending this show on how fun and weird it is. I just figured it was a poor Strike Witches/Nanoha amalgamation that would soon fade except for only the most pervy of fans. But with a round two given to this show I see I may have another fun exciting ride on my hand, a la Symphogear. Let’s go!

Vividred Operation ep1: I literally hope this shows runs out of a budget.

January 14, 2013 1 comment

My head hurts. I don’t even know why I’m diving into so many new anime this season. Especially when, like most any anime fan whose been watching shows for more than a year, for every show that comes out, there’s generally four or five in my backlog in that same genre that I should’ve watched first. Vividred Operation looks like an interesting little project.  But the first episode didn’t prove that. It just showed me the near limits of what I’m willing to put up with in order to learn about a new anime. Read more…

Rinne no Lagrange ep19: my lonely loli lily of reincarnation.

[Rinne no Lagrange ep18]

I’ve come a long way when it comes to understanding and tolerating this show.  Though I don’t believe I’ll ever accept it as a true mecha show, I still manage to tolerate it and string together some positives from each twenty plus minutes of animation in it.  I used to harp on how annoying and daft Madoka was.  But I’ve gotten used to her awkwardly pushy and hyper personality.  And I’ll admit that it’s nice to see her actions pay off.  And it’s actually nice to see characters in an anime act a little reasonable with or without the violence.  Though I will say it’s not terribly exciting to watch.

Rinne no Lagrange ep18: a most convenient series of events.

[Rinne no Lagrange ep17]

If by some miracle I could add something to this show (besides a lot more robot on robot violence), it might be Newtype powers.  Because the lengths this show goes to to get people to understand each other is ridiculous.  To make matters worse, you’re not sure after all this how much the characters actually do understand each other.  Rinne no Lagrange episode 18, a failure to communicate.  Rectified with violence and girl power.  Read more…

Don KangolJones’ Images of the Week: August 8th (Much love for Muv-Luv)

I enjoy a good mecha production as much as the next Gundam loving, Eva worshipping, Gurren-Lagann inspired guy. So when someone like me gets to enjoy 4 currently airing mecha or mecha inspired series, as well as some good old school Macross, I will say that I’m greatly aware and a time like this awed at the diversity and quantity that is at my disposal. And yet I still have the nerve to pick up a mahou shoujo and read pervy manga. I guess I’ll never be truly satisfied. Read more…
