[AKB0048 Episode 11] Similar to the previous episode, a whole lot of things are going on in parallel, but notably there are some threads that are wrapping up – as they should given that this is the penultimate episode, and … Continue reading

[Muv Luv Alternative Total Eclipse Episode 02] First of all let me make it clear that I loved this episode. I’ve been asking for a show that’s similar to Macross Plus and Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory, particularly in … Continue reading

[Eureka seveN Ao Episode 13] Shock and awe. An old military term, that aptly applies to the last three weeks. Like a Blitzkrieg, it has been a rolled through the audience with hit after hit of revelation and hints. This … Continue reading

I usually go for the kind of fantasy where the problems that afflict the world are inauthentically complex, like war. I say the complexity isn’t authentic because the resolution is often clean: peace, love, and song are the magic stuff; … Continue reading

[Mobile Suit Gundam AGE 40] My worst fears continue to be confirmed as Kio tears through the Vagan-held Luna Base lopping off MS heads with precise shooting, for the sake of not killing; then lecture any enemy he can’t decapitate … Continue reading
[Muv Luv Alternative Total Eclipse Episode 03] To be straight with you, I don’t really care much for the back story of Yuuya or anyone else in this show. I’m not engaged by any of this at all. I’m not … Continue reading
[AKB0048 Episode 12] This show surprised me a fair bit on its way to this end, and most of the time the surprises were good. This finale however is a mixed bag of awesomeness and awfulness with little in between. … Continue reading

[Eureka seveN AO Episode 14] If there is anything Astral Ocean does better than It’s predecessor, is that it keeps the story moving. For the last month, the quick pace has brought us into the thick of the story without … Continue reading

[Mobile Suit Gundam AGE 41] Rightly or wrongly what I value most in a robot anime is the robot action, relative to its age and milieu. There are exceptions such as Mobile Suit Z Gundam, which was a step backwards … Continue reading
[Muv Luv Alternative Total Eclipse Episode 04] In this episode, bullshit racism blah blah blah; bullshit sexism blah blah blah; bullshit pilot x machine analogies related to aforementioned racist and sexist content blah blah blah. Okay, with that out of … Continue reading

I picked up Kokoro Connect a couple of episodes in, after some prodding from fellow anibloggers. The show’s key premise in these opening episodes is that some sort of supreme spirit is being mischievous, and is using the 5 main … Continue reading

[Mobile Suit Gundam AGE 42] The highlight here is not that there were three Gundams. Ever since the very first Alternative Universe series (Mobile Fighter G Gundam) we’ve been treated to multiple Gundam Mobile Suits share the same battlefield, at … Continue reading
Fram vs Flit Gundam AGE 43
A surprising hit this season is the series Humanity has Declined (Jinrui wa suitai shimashita, or “Jinrui” for short). This series makes a satirical parody of many things in our modern lives. In episode 3, we find the story digging up media from … Continue reading

I haven’t been able to work on We Remember Love (my apologies to readers whose comments I’ve not replied to) mostly due my house getting flooded last week due to severe Biblical flooding that hit the Philippine island of Luzon … Continue reading
Sometimes I wonder if I’ll ever get to see a show that cuts through the mess and gives me the pure mecha action I want. Then I come across a new show, and think that I’ve gotten what I wanted. … Continue reading

[Eureka Seven AO Episode 15] They finally did it. As I mentioned before, I hate shows that involve time travel. It’s a plot device that, when done poorly, only leads to confusion. And the moment Bones started to use it, … Continue reading

[Mobile Suit Gundam AGE 44] I often read critics pan films by using/making the observation “like a video game,” as if video game action sequences aren’t proven methods of delivering a high level of action entertainment. I don’t buy into … Continue reading
