ai_mai_mi_mousou_catastrophie-08-mii-comedy-blood-death-dart-chibiBack during Week 9: explaining why Tokyo ESP is the most disappointing anime of the season despite not being the worst, layering the education and presenting knowledge in Yama no Susume Second Season, why Sanae is more than just the #1 girl in Koutarou’s harem in Rokujouma no Shinryakusha!?, and wondering why more people don’t use photon swords in Sword Art Online II.

Summer 2014 – Week 6 Anime Review

glasslip-06-kakeru-touko-romance-running_away-dramatic-art_style-lightThis week: an analysis on the subtitle of Aldnoah.Zero and the meaning of fiat justitia ruat caelum, thoughts on the rigid, formulaic pattern of storytelling in Barakamon, the lack of character independence and the emphasis of friendship in Glasslip, and looking at the difference (if there is a difference) between Lisa and moe anime girls in Zankyou no Terror.

12 Days of Anime (2012) – Day 5 – Dancing Openings and Endings of 2012

nisemonogatari-opening-tsukihi-koyomi-dancing-platinum_disco-kimonoLet’s face it, if there were a hierarchy of anime openings and endings, then the fanservice dancing ones would be on top.  They’re like the royalty of anime OPs and EDs, not only in terms of quality and fondness but also in how unforgettable or distinctive they are.  Remember that dance in Haruhi?  Or the Lucky Star opening? Or my personal favorite, the seconding ending to xxxHOLiC?  As soon as you infuse some dancing into an opening or ending, they improve or, at the very least, become more memorable.  This year, we witnessed the origination of several new dancing openings and endings, with each showing its influence by being some of the most cherished and celebrated sequences of the year.  And for this day, I want to honor these select few openings and endings for being some of the best in 2012.
