Check-in Station: Shiki eps 1-12 (without horrible hair you have no chance at the afterlife)

Apparently, while I was sh*tting on Highschool of the Dead and its LOL-ability, there was another show that was getting just as popular and receiving much more respectable praise.  That show is Shiki.  The name for the show I’m just now understanding.  And the praise it received I came in wondering if it could possibly be warranted for a show about supernaturals.  A concept that could be as awesome (Vampire Hunter D) as it could be weak and half-baked (Ookami Kakushi & Vampire Bund).  I wonder what category this show will end up in?

#Gosick ep15: so… black people can’t be seen at night? Yeah that makes total sense.

You should’ve seen the look on my face when I found out Leviathan was ni– a black man. *whew!* I’m not even gonna comment on the “ghost who could not be seen” legend.  How many of these stories have I seen where the black guy gets screwed over? So the Saubure monarchy was a scheming, racist elitist group? No real surprise given the attitudes of European colonialism back in those times.

Gosick ep13: Victorique can now be a character in Blaz Blue

Sure, Victorique’s new rolling kick isn’t that impressive, it’s probably useless.  But she could always be one of those special support characters that don’t actually do much besides add a special item or do one move.  That special item could be confectioneries for health, and the move would obviously be that rolling kick.  She’s still practically useless, but think of the cuteness factor!   Read more…

Check-in Station: Gosick eps 1-5 (My loli would like the poop with her dessert.)

You’ll have to forgive me if I didn’t have very high hopes for this Gosick (I seem to have said that about a lot of series in the past six months). The initial artwork gave me the feeling that the production staff was trying to appeal to the case closed crowd who wanted something cuter, with a distinct change of setting. And while I may not actually be wrong in the end, I can at least say that this series has been somewhat entertaining at least. And it has done a hell of a job not angering me or disappointing me even up to this early stage. Read more…
