TTGL Collab with Scott from Mechanical Anime

Here it is! I’ve been (typically?) awfully busy of late, and so a combination of scheduled posts + random bursts of energy have kept me in the blogging game, but today I want to share something that was heaps of fun and which I worked on with Scott for a while (I slowed things downContinue reading “TTGL Collab with Scott from Mechanical Anime”

Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet (Suisei no Gargantia)

Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet (Suisei no Gargantia) 2013 Once again, I’m going to fight my urge to ramble here – so, that means just a few paragraphs now, focusing on Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet this time. If you’ve never come across this series I think I’ll mention that it stands out in theContinue reading “Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet (Suisei no Gargantia)”

Gunsmith Cats: Bulletproof

Gunsmith Cats: Bulletproof 1995 Gunsmith Cats maybe still holds that ‘cult’ status now, even after the internet has no doubt introduced more folks to this mid-90s OVA. (So too, the Kickstarter campaign that funded a re-issue a few years back now.) I love so much about this series but I’m torn when it comes toContinue reading “Gunsmith Cats: Bulletproof”

The Perfect Insider (Subete ga F ni Naru)

The Perfect Insider (Subete ga F ni Naru) 2015 Okay, so in an effort to avoid spoiler-territory I’ve been wondering how to phrase what I guess you’d call a ‘content warning’ about this one – something you’d see on the cover of the DVD, basically. Here in Australia, my copy says that The Perfect InsiderContinue reading “The Perfect Insider (Subete ga F ni Naru)”

Abandoned #6 (Ga-Rei: Zero, Ghost in the Shell: SAC 2045 & El Cazador de la Bruja)

Welcome to my 6th ‘Abandoned’ post and of course, my usual disclaimer that I might come back to these one day! Ga-Rei: Zero (2008) During my slump the other month (when I was having a lot of trouble finishing things) I started and abandoned various anime and Ga-Rei: Zero was one of them. I’ve seenContinue reading “Abandoned #6 (Ga-Rei: Zero, Ghost in the Shell: SAC 2045 & El Cazador de la Bruja)”

Rage of Bahamut (Shingeki no Bahamut)

Rage of Bahamut (Shingeki no Bahamut) 2014 Okay, here’s a challenge for me – can I review a series in four paragraphs only? Let’s see. Demons, Angels, Gods and Humans clash (and sometimes work together) in this supernatural fantasy, one that’s based on a card battling game from Cygames. You can expect a lot ofContinue reading “Rage of Bahamut (Shingeki no Bahamut)”

Guin Saga

Guin Saga is one that I’m having trouble deciding on a rating for – I liked it enough but I don’t know if I’d actually recommend it, unless you’re a fan of the novels this anime is based on, perhaps. This series is a fantasy epic from the early days of CGI that gives youContinue reading “Guin Saga”

Eat-Man / Eat-Man ’98

How’s this for a fun premise? Strong-silent-type mercenary who can recreate anything he eats wanders around a cyberpunk/dystopian/fantastic world taking on all kinds of jobs! Well, both adaptations of Eat-Man are indeed that – but I’ve been having trouble deciding precisely how I responded to them. They were only made a year apart and bothContinue reading “Eat-Man / Eat-Man ’98”

Not the Top Reviews from the Second 6 Months

Following on from the previous post in this style, here’s a list of reviews that weren’t the top posts re: reader interest, but which I’m highlighting because I like something about each one! Onward: November – Sword of the Stranger December – Mushi-Shi January – Un-Go February – A Tree of Palme March – 8Continue reading “Not the Top Reviews from the Second 6 Months”
