space_dandy_2-08-poe-planet_limbo-up_or_down-direction-decision-life_and_death-heaven_and_hellBack whenever week 8 was and whenever these episodes aired: thoughts on the expressiveness and emotion in Hanayamata, wondering where they get the ideas for episodes for Space Dandy Season 2, linking unique character traits to symbolism in Aldnoah.Zero, and thoughts on the split between mountaineering and cute girls in Yama no Susume Second Season.

Summer 2014 – Week 7 Anime Review

jojos_bizarre_adventure_stardust_crusaders-20-death_13-heirophant_green-stands-looking_at_each_other_funny-comedyWow, I haven’t written for a while. So yeah, this post covers anime that aired about a thousand weeks ago. Still the articles are worth reading, trust me. In fact, some of the topics in this weekly review include: thoughts on blending the real robot and super robot genres in Aldnoah.Zero, appreciating the use of futuristic and alien technologies in Rokujouma no Shinryakusha!?, questioning Lisa’s role since the first episode in Zankyou no Terror, and trying to find the best episode to define Space Dandy.

Summer 2014 – Week 2 Anime Review

hanayamata-01-hana-moon-cherry_blossoms-yukata-happi_coat-fan-japanese-blondeLast week: examining why Momoka dominates the comedy in Sabagebu!, a justification for why the educational segments in Yama no Susume Second Season are so enjoyable, enjoying the use of parallels in Zankyou no Terror and not understanding Japanese calligraphy at all in Barakamon.

Winter 2014 – Week 8 Anime Review

inari_konkon_koi_iroha-07-inari-kon-angry-furious-fire-emotionalThis week: thoughts on whether to dislike or sympathize with Yukine in Noragami, why the confession scene in Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha was exceptional, why Silver Spoon S2 works better as a sports anime, and recommending The Princess and the Pilot (Toaru Hikuushi e no Tsuioku) for those watching Pilot’s Love Song (Toaru Hikuushi e no Koiuta)
