Ranpo Kitan: Game of Laplace 1 – Anime Sherlock

vlcsnap-2015-07-08-10h50m42s710

First, let me praise this Kobayashi dude for reigniting my hype for this show, because his entire character design  hinted me very strongly as to what are the contents of this show. But then, I stayed with this show for reasons others than the contents hinted at by Kobayashi’s appearance. Or, to be more straight-forward, I came for the yaoi, and stayed for the mystery.

Spring 2015 Roundup

I had really high hopes for Spring 2015 that were more-or-less crushed by the second month of the season. Quite a lot of the shows I was following turned out to be crud, and in the last month I more or less fell behind everything except JoJo and Blood Blockade Battlefront. Oh well. At least it’s better than Winter.

Seraph of the End: Vampire Reign Is Terrible And It’s Dead To Me – Final Review

Owari-no-Seraph-01-Large-21

Oh man, it’s been a long time since I had a hatewatch (well, two seasons actually but that’s a long time for the Interwebs). I was hoping that Winter’s LN trio, whatever they were called, would be one of those. Alas, they were too dreadful to be hatewatched; rumours persist that the North Koreans are using them as torture devices for particularly tough POWs. And so, I was left with Seraph of the End in Spring and I was left with despair and anguish.

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders 47-48 FINAL – End of ZA WARUDO

Let me first apologize for the extreme lateness of this post, because I decided to allocate all my blog-writing time to drafting my season preview, a process which requires through and rigourous research, along with some complicated IRL stuff (not the bad kind of IRL stuff, so no worries mates). Anyway, let’s move on to the JoJo episodes, shall we?

You though it was going to be Star Platinum in the opening, but it was me, ZA WARUDO!

REALLY GUYS REALLY DIO LIKE CAME OUT OF FUCKING NOWHERE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE OPENING AND HE PUNCHED THE SCREEN AND THEN HE WENT MUDAMUDAMUDAMUDA AND JOTARO WAS LIKE ORAORAORAORAORAORAORA AND IT WAS SO FUCKING COOL AND DAVID PRO IS SO BASED BECAUSE IT WAS CLEAR THAT THEY PLANNED THIS SINCE THE BEGINNING OF THE EGYPT ARC GOD THIS WAS SO FUCKING AWESOME

Erm… Ahem. Er… excuse the outburst. It’s just natural reaction to this week’s episode.

Summer 2015 Preview

2015 continues to be eh in anime, overall. Winter was extremely disappointing while Spring was indeed good, but not quite that great like Fall 2014 was (although I miss that season mainly because it brought upon us GARO: The Animation). And because we crossed into Bizarro World apparently and none of us noticed, this summer does seem to be the season with the most potential this year, despite Summer usually being the shittiest season there is (let us not remember Summer 2010). What new spore of madness is this? Let’s find out!

GARO: The Animation Is The Definition Of Cool – Final Review

vlcsnap-2015-03-13-22h16m40s104

With all these new anime coming and going, this show has been constantly on my mind ever since then. Despite only ranking #2 in its seasonal roundup, it’s definitely the one to have a really lasting impression on me with its writing, execution, its everything. Probably, it’s proof that I can be rather short-term with my seasonal roundups, but that’s not the topic of discussion at hand. The thing is, I haven’t paid this anime the honor it deserves, and to that purpose I will now review it to explain why it’s so fucking awesome.
