We demand an exclamation! Or eight!

So, we finally got around to that beach episode review (sort of) we promised you all, and as some of you has probably figured out, the show is Keijo!!!!!!!!. (And yes, those eight exclamation marks are part of the title; it wouldn't be the same without them.) And for being an anime based on that dumb side event in the DoA Xtreme series, it was a remarkably fun series. Probably because they kicked up the ferocity of the event a notch. With their butts.

Summer is basically upon us too, so maybe it was a good thing this show was delayed until now. As for what we'll have next Monday... well, I don't think I dare make any specific promises, because... well, you saw how that turned out.

See you all again.

Beach, please.

So yeah, we keep putting off our little contribution to waterfront fun, aren't we? Well, Allen, bless his hardworking soul, has prepared something for us to show you in the interrim.

He gave The Third: The Girl With The Blue Eye a look, and found it quite alright. Fun, even. Not bad for a relicense.

NEXT Monday... that's when we'll be done. That's when we'll REALLY dive into the fun pool. Honest.

Nothing new today.

Life has, once again, swallowed the majority of us, and as such, there's no new reviews to put up this time around. We should be able to get something done for next Monday, though.

Sweetness and Lightning, Very Very Frightening....

Parenthood might be a frightening challenge on its own, but being a single parent of a somewhat rambunctious bundle of energy might be even more nerve-wracking. So is the case of the main lead in Sweetness and Lightning, where its main child lead, Tsumugi, places herself somewhere between Rin and Reina from Usagi drop when it comes to general child behavior. Though its subject is centered around something I only have a casual relationship to at best, it's still a really sweet show, so the title certainly isn't lying or overselling its content.

Summer approaches too, so maybe we'll have some waterfront fun for you next Monday. See you all then.

The Show That Warns You Not to Watch.

Yeah, seriously, it's that bad. Tim gives Abunai Sisters: Koko & Mika a look, and then wishes he'd thrown himself on a real, live grenade instead. It's just awful.

Things didn't turn out any better this week at all, did it? I think we need to stop doing this to ourselves, and hopefully next week will be the week to let us do that.

Vampires Inverted.

Oof, today's update turned out to be two extremes on the big review rating scale.

Allen was the lucky one this time. He had the chance to watch Patema Inverted, which he absolutely loved. I don't know if it turned his expectations upside-down, but something got turned on its head, at least.

Meanwhile, I had a go at Bloodivores. Yes, that is the show's name. No, it's being very serious. Well, trying, at least. No, it's not a good show, neither is it bad in a good or fun way. It's just... really, really bad. Unrelentingly, bewilderingly bad. Just... just read.

Well... I guess it's fair that I get the terrible show once in a while too. Can't all be gold. Next week is hopefully going a little easier on all of us. See you then?
