Looks like we'll be taking a sabbatical this week.

I got some shows lined up, but they haven't entirely finished yet, as is the case with some of the others too. Although Allen can have himself a well-deserved rest for once. So... nothing this week.

We hope you have a nice week otherwise, though.

Fame and Glory, Kid. Fame and Glory...

Although in the case of the protagonists in Allen's pick of the week; the somewhat pretentiously named Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom, there won't be much of either. Still, he rather liked the show, so there's that.

Anyway, that was another week. They've been passing through far quicker than what I'm comfortable with. But hopefully we'll have something for you next week too. See you then.

Home of the Brave.

This week, Tim and I are taking a look at the most recent addition to the Strike Witches franchise, namely Brave Witches, which sort of doesn't quite live up to its forebears. With so many good "cute girls doing things (not necessarily cute)" shows that are coming out these days, this franchise -- least of all -- can't afford getting lazy. Especially since it followed in the footsteps of a movie that was actually good.

Well, that's just the way the witch flies sometimes, we guess. We'll see some greener shores next time, we hope.

A Good Anime Based on an Ero VN Game is Like a Needle in the Haystack.

According to Allen, A Good Librarian Is Like A Good Shepherd really tries, bless its little shepherding heart, but it doesn't really manage to keep its little flock occupied, it would seem. To its credit, it does come across more like "it's a shame, but..." rather than "yeah, it's to be expected." So take whatever comfort you can from that.

Well... a bit light on quality this week, I guess. Hopefully we can do better next week.

See you then.

Two Can Play at This Game.

With the kind of sporting event you will see in this show, that's actually the point too. This week, I have the pleasure of introducing you all to Two Car, a show about sidecar motorcycle racing. Although "pleasure" might be overselling this one; you need a rather large amount of patience when it comes to a certain aspect of this show, or you'll be more likely to grind your teeth into dust.

And with that, we cross the finish line for this week. See you all next week.

Allen, you're killing us, man.

Seriously, I'm going to have to go and change your reviewer avatar to a T-800, because once again, he comes up with the goods. And what goods we have with Kill la Kill, which, granted, we could've had a review for a long time ago, but here we finally are.

Well, that should be enough spectacle for one week. See you again next week.
