We’ve been meaning to watch The Big O for a while now, and believe us when we say that it was well worth the wait. Join us as we talk about some good ‘ol big mech nostalgia, the show’s weird twists and turns with memory, and a never-before-seen end-of-cast twist in opinions. This show is an absolute treasure, and we hope you see why by the end of this.
Samurai Flamenco is a wild ride. We discuss some of its crazy antics, its different aspects of justice of the main character Masayoshi, and how it makes us think differently and reflect on older sentai super heroes shows and other super hero genres.
The spring season may not have as much of a kick in terms of sheer adrenaline and mind-bending shows as the winter season, but don’t count it out! We’ve dug through a mountain of shows to find the season’s cream of the crop (and some of the trash, while we’re at it). Join us as we discuss some good, wholesome fun with Hitoribocchi, Senryu Girl, and Fruits Basket, talk about the weird side of spring with Sarazanmai and Midnight Occult Civil Servants, and dissect some truly heinous garbage.
The winter season ended with a bang, and even though we promised ourselves we wouldn’t go overboard, we definitely, definitely did – this one’s almost three hours, but we just had so much we needed to get out there!
Join us as we talk about the weird, granular umami of what makes sports anime great with Run With the Wind, discuss a fair amount of romance with quintuplets, step-siblings, and student council peers, and go nuts over Bang Dream! for…close to an hour? It’s all great, so come on in!
Have you ever gone back and watched an anime you watched as a kid? It hurts sometimes, because it isn’t always quite as good as you remember it being.
We watched Blue Submarine No. 6, and it was…interesting. Join us as we talk about so-bad-it’s-good 90’s 3DCG, genuinely interesting world-building, and writing issues that drag the whole show down with them.
There’s a good anime in there somewhere, but this ain’t it.
We watched Guilty Crown and wow, do we regret it. Join us as we talk about voiding, the many, many narrative pitfalls this show digs itself into, and copying others’ work and definitely making it look like your own.
Mythos came back to us, and to celebrate, we decided to do a seasonal cast (definitely not because that’s what we usually do, anyways – totally not)!
For the Xth time in a row, we talk about how “surprisingly good” the winter season is, how we always actually have a lot of good stuff in the winter season, and get down to talking about a veritable treasure trove of shows. We talk about some good, good horror in The Promised Neverland, a lot of 3DCG shows, one of which (cough cough W’z cough cough) gets Tofu both riled up and introspective, some mental, emotional warfare in Kaguya-sama, and really, a lot more things than we can adequately list here.
