Weathering With Shinkai.

Allen takes a look at Weathering With You, a movie by the well known (for a reason) Makoto Shinkai. And it's good, as usual, in that Shinkai Makoto way.

Look, I haven't watched any of his movies. The main complaint I hear is that to watch his movies, you really have to be into his... thing. You know, the way he develops the character, not his... you know...

...actually, never mind. It's Shinkai. If you love his stuff, go watch. That's what Allen is trying to say.

Next week, we'll be thinking of the planet. See you all then.

Swimming With The Afterlife.

Well... I guess it would be more accurate to say "bathing with the dead", because my show of this week is Yuuna and the Haunted Hot Springs, which has really made me aware of how big my list of "enjoyable fanservice shows" is getting. And yes, it is enjoyable in a very old-school way. I recommend taking a dip with this show.

And that's it for this week. Next week, let's talk about the weather. Won't that be nice?

Love for the Elderly.

Today, Allen races to keep up with After the Rain, a show that centers around a bit of a May-December romance. Or at least an attempt to for one of the parties involved.

Whoa, that got hot and steamy, didn't it. Oh, the scandalousness of it all. Next week, we're going to have to take a cold shower. Or a.... hot spring? Which has a chilling aspect to it, but not really? Uh....

Killing You Softly With Bite Marks....

Well, that's probably not true in this case, if Allen's take on Killing Bites is anything to go by, because he was absolutely repulsed by it. Basically, trashy can be fun, but not this level of trash.

Sheesh, even a rainy day would be preferably to this. Good thing that's on the horizon for next week. See you all then.

Bunny Demon Drop Part Deux.

Yes, this week, we'll be taking a look at If It's For My Daughter, I'd Even Defeat a Demon Lord, another long title in a long list of long titles. Despite its initial heartwarming premise, the show is a... mixed bag. Mostly because it's too hung up on "Latina sure is cute, isn't she?" And, well... there isn't much more to this show than that, unfortunately.

Next week, Allen will return to take a bite out of another proverbial victim... if it doesn't bite first. See you all then.

Take Two Teases and Call Me in the Morning.

So Allen gets to return to a show he loved; one that got a second season, namely Teasing Master Takagi-San 2. And did the second season live up to the first season? Absolutely. For the record, the reference he makes to me and Tim are from the synchro we did of the show, where Takagi didn't make the best first impression, maybe, but her attitude and... well, relationship with Nishikata improved by leaps and bounds and competitions. I bought that season on Bluray, which should be more than telling.

Well, that's it for this week. Next week, we'll be thinking of the CHILDRUUUN! Please stay tuned.
