You Lease Your Life!

Allen's pick of the week is a little... strange. He reviews Zombie Loan, a show that seems to think dead people need more banking business in their lives, a place where even your life -- or maybe death -- is something to be put on the table when all the checks are about to be cashed in. Or something like that. I'm just saying it sounds like a really strange show for good and bad.

And if you think that sounds like a bad idea in the making, next week will be even less fun. See you then.

Kanonical Friends Deux.

I am reviewing Kemono Friends 2, which was an awkward undertaking in so many ways. I'm not sure what else to say other than what's in the review, so... go read it.

Next week, the already deceased are upon us, so please survive until then. See you all later.

Calling it Quits On The Quintessentials. How Quaint.

Yep, Allen muscles his way through the entirety of The Quintessential Quintuplets and has few nice things to say about it, most of which can be summed up with the word "Miku". I don't blame him; I gave that show up after the first episode, because I didn't really want to see Love Hina again, even if it's wearing a different skin suit this time around.

And once again, I wish I could say that things get better next week, but... well, let's just say we're going to delve into a show that was probably doomed from the start, given certain events preceeding its production.

See you all then.

An Innside Job.

All our fears were for naught, as Allen gives us a look at Okko's Inn, a serious, but also delightful little movie about a young girl facing some adversity upon her parents' death, yet managing to overcome this through a little gumption and some help from her friends. It's... not as stereotypical as it sounds.

We should be so lucky with next week's entry, though. See you all then.

Still Morose After All These Years....

Yes, Allen brings us back to when things were kind of heavy with The Morose Mononokean II, and finds it as delightfully non-mundane as usual.

Next week might be a bit up in the air, because hoo boy, the older you get, the less time off you get on your vacations. Let's hope we can get something assembled in time. See you then?

Girls Onna Plane!

It just occured to me that it would be hellishly amusing if anyone civilian in this show pointed to the sky and went "Is it a bird?! IS IT A PLANE?!" because the latter is what half of the beings in Girly Air Force are. Yes, the tagline "50% of one thing and 50% of the other thing makes 100% madcap shenanigans" would liven up this show a bit, I think, because the worst part about it is that it's a bit drab despite doing a few things quite well. And there's not nearly enough jet fighter nerdery, damn it! Or shenanigans. At least of the funny variety.

Next week will see us back on a more spiritual side of things, Y-OKai?
