A Liquid Top Ten (2020, Quarter Two)

So, I’m a little late on the ‘second’ quarter here, but it’s still the second entry in this little ‘series’ of posts, at least 🙂 If you click here you can see a preamble and some reasoning re: why I included the ten titles I chose for quarter one… but let’s see if anything hasContinue reading “A Liquid Top Ten (2020, Quarter Two)”

Black Lagoon (Burakku Ragūn)

Black Lagoon (Burakku Ragūn) 2006 So! I was pretty certain I’d enjoy this going in, and I certainly did, and so thanks to everyone who voted back in April! I could probably centre most of this review on the OVA in a way (and most of my criticism) but I actually want to stay withContinue reading “Black Lagoon (Burakku Ragūn)”

RahXephon

[Spoilers abound!] RahXephon (2002) Today I’m starting with a thank you to In Search of Number Nine because I think that without these great posts, I would not have been introduced to a classic mecha show that I’d somehow missed over the years 🙂 As fans of RahXephon certainly already know, narrowing the series downContinue reading “RahXephon”

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”

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)”

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”

A Liquid Top Ten (2020, Film Edition)

Much like my previous, similar post to this one, I want this list to change whenever I come back to it 🙂 Also like my last post, there’s no special reason to do this really – but it serves two purposes for me; Self-Reflection and Fun. I do think that as bloggers and audiences weContinue reading “A Liquid Top Ten (2020, Film Edition)”

Abandoned #5 (Shigofumi, Penguin Highway & Tales of Zestiria the X)

Here we go again with a new ‘Abandoned’ post and my usual disclaimer that I might come back to these one day! Shigofumi (2008) I think I liked the concept better than the approach when it came to Shigofumi. Like many of the shows I mention in these posts I don’t think I’ve ruled outContinue reading “Abandoned #5 (Shigofumi, Penguin Highway & Tales of Zestiria the X)”

The Place Promised in Our Early Days (Kumo no Mukō, Yakusoku no Basho)

[A couple of spoilers in this one]*. There are a few Makoto Shinkai works I haven’t seen so far but I’m still comfortable placing this film somewhere between ‘not my favourite of his’ and ‘still beautiful’ though I’m not sure how useful those descriptors are re: ranking. The Place Promised in Our Early Days (KumoContinue reading “The Place Promised in Our Early Days (Kumo no Mukō, Yakusoku no Basho)”
