Break in the Law.

Well, looks like we don't have anything new for you this week. Time to adjust to our working scedules, I guess, now that summer is over. Not over over, but still....

Let's try again for next week.

Are You in the Market For Something?

Allen hops back a few years and gives the probably lesser known Kyoto Animation show Tamako Market a look. He finds it, if not amazing, at least a fairly competent low-stakes kind of fun show to while away the hours with.

Next week, we will probably check in on a classic that's gotten a new lease of life recently. So we'll see you all then.

Living the Japanese Dream.

Which -- according to my show of the week, the ever understanding Helpful Fox Senko-san -- is that while it's important to be able to look after oneself, there's nothing wrong with indulging in a little wish-fulfillment from time to time. And so it goes.

And that's that. Next week, we got a different kind of love for you all to delve into. See you all then.

Tired and Burnin'

So yeah, I was supposed to make this week's update yesterday. Personally, I blame the ridiculous heat we've had for at least a week now, and it's just now that it recently cooled down a bit outside that I remembered that Monday was yesterday. So yeah, sorry about that.

Anyway, Allen has Tiger and Bunny for you all today, a show that thinks superhero culture needs some more good ol' fashioned corporate corruption to liven things up. And it does so with aplomb if Allen has anything to say about it. And he does, otherwise we wouldn't have an update.

Next week will be a bit about another dark side to corporate culture, but at the same time not so much. See you all then. Unless another heatwave will hit the shores of Norway again. In which case huuuurgh!

Who Is The Bigger Monster?

Allen takes a look at the third season of Attack on Titan, a show that's gathered no small amount of infamy for being a show about gigantic, nearly invulnerable humanoids who like to eat people for seemingly no reason, and they aren't even the biggest problem most people have to contend with. Well... figuratively speaking.

Which is an interesting show (and concept) to mull over when not long ago, a very regular human being chose to set fire to not only the main office of Kyoto Animation, but in that process very intentionally ending as many lives as he could. This was confirmed to be 34 people, with many more gravely injured. So we at THEM ask you to please keep the victims of this tragic event in your minds. And if you can offer a more monetary contribution, Sentai Filmworks is running a donation effort for the sake of helping Kyoto Animation with their journey of recovery.

And on that very sobering note, we wish you farewell for now. See you again next week.

Hitoribocchi no Marumaru Dokidoki Knick Knack Paddy Whack Give The Dog a Bone.

This would hardly be the first show I've reviewed with a really cumbersome title, but Hitori Bocchi no Marumaru Seikatsu is still kind of a mouthful as titles go. It's an alright show, though, as slice-of-lives go, the only downside being that it has some fierce competition among some of its older peers, many of which I have reviewed for this site. The bar is set quite high in the CGDCT area of animedom.

Well, that's it for now. We're still in a bit of vacation mode, so we'll see what we can come up with next Monday. See you all then.
