And You Thought There is Never a G.I.R.L. Online?

Yeah, now that would just be silly, wouldn't it? I mean... the main lead in And You Thought There is Never a Girl Online? pretty much learned that yes, there is a lot of girls online, and some of them play as guy characters. Not that the show is full of lectures about never assuming player gender is character gender, but it does know how to have some fun with the subject.... among other aspects of the big MMORPG lifestyle. (As it were.)

Next week, we might talk about girls again, but that might depend on whether I can shake off this cold so that my head starts working properly again. Fevers are never fun. But at least I can do site updates, so... silver lining and all? See you all then.

Cooler than Ice. (And how?)

As promised, Nicoletta is here with a review for a great show, especially if you belong to the LGBT community. Then again, if you do, you probably already heard about Yuri!!! on ICE, watched it, loved it and bought the shipping T-shirt and complimentary ice skates. It's good.

Next week, I'll be taking a look at a show that I initially dreaded a bit, but turned out surprisingly well. Because that has never happened to me before, am I right?

See you all then.

Re:Location is the Key.

So yeah, me and Tim reviewed Re:Zero -Starting Life in Another World-, which was not an easy review to write. Then again, that's fair, since it was also not an easy show to watch. It had a set of rather big pluses and minuses, and for both good and bad, it does also not hold back. Not even an inch. It does come recommended, but the show also has a tendency to encourage its viewers to whip out the but's. As you can see.

Next week, Nicoletta will be back with something new. And it's good too, so look forward to that.

Hey! Teacher! Leave them walls alone!

Hello, everyone. Today, we've got two new reviews for you... sort of.

The first one is more like a complete overhaul, as Nicoletta wasn't happy with her initial take on Candy Boy for a variety of reasons, one of which is the original review being six years old. Either way, the show was received far more favorably now, so... that's good, right? (Incidentally, because it's a rewrite, the show name won't show up on the side bad on the left. Only recently added reviews go there.)

Allen stares up at a more literal wall as he tackles the second season of Attack on Titan, which he... wasn't really all that impressed with, to be honest. Oh, he liked it well enough, but as far as I can tell, he's getting a bit irritated over it being a bit trollish with the dangling carrot. Will we ever learn what's in the cellar? Only the titans know for sure. Or not.

Anyway, that's enough of us staring at y'all from over the wall. Next time, we might very well have to take you with us into a completely different world. See you then.

Taking You All Into Alternate Dimensions For Both Good And Bad Since.... uh, 2003? No, wait, 1993.

Although in Allen's case, it's more of a "coming out of the alternate dimension", because he's giving you all a review for Alice and Zoroku, which he rather liked. I can vouch for that since I watched it myself, and the really amazing part is that it's got two kickass leads; one below the general age range for anime leads and one far, far beyond. And they both kick ass.

And then, there's my contribution, sorted straightly in the "you should be glad I didn't unleash this one on you last week" section of the file cabinet. It's Hand Shakers, a show that's already infamous for being a complete disaster, and I'm not about to abuse that notion the same way that show abuses my common sense and... well, just about everything else.

At least there was one good suggestion this week, huh? Well... I guess I said "don't watch this", so that makes it technically two. Anyway, see you again next week.

Arere-Sensei brings you the best worst of two worlds that might as well have been one.

So yeah, the popularity of Oreimo made it a given that something would pop up that kind of feels the same, although Allen thinks Eromanga Sensei is so bad, you might as well stick to the "original" anyway. Although what would make a show like this good is anybody's guess, I... uh... guess.

Well, whatever. Just be glad I didn't get my review ready in time. There's just so much bad one should have to deal with in one week, and two one-star shows might've been a bit of an overkill.

See you again next week.
