Independent Caturday Permit Granted.

Yeah, there was a kickstarter for a particular anime some years ago -- well, there has been more than one, but I've already reviewed one of them, and I was originally planning on leaving Nekopara OVA unreviewed, mostly because I don't really have a lot of nice things to say about it. Well, now that said OVA has a TV series sequel, I reneged on that, hopefully to give some perspective on why I like the TV series a little bit better, at least.

But that's for later. We have OVA this week, and next week, Allen will put on his dancin' shoes. Or something like that. See you all then.

Putting the Kai in Isekai.

Allen once again takes a journey to the alternate world side with Ni No Kuni, which seems to be awfully Ghibli-ish and/or Disney-ish for an isekai serving. And it's good.

And that's that. Next week, we'll look into the secret life of cats that are not cats but are cats after all. Sort of. See you then.

The Road's Showing Her Teeth Tonight.

So yeah, Allen is here to tell you that Drifting Dragons has dragons on the menu... in a quite literal fashion. It's basically a bit of an alternate take of sorts on a real-life industry of some controversy. And his thoughts were pretty much "Eh.. it's alright."

Next week, Allen will getting his game groove on. See you all then.

Keeping a Short Fuse on a Long Leash.

...yeah, I'm not sure where I was going with that. And Allen's also not quite sure what to make of Fuse: Memoirs of the Hunter Girl's somewhat ambivalent pedigree, other than wishing it was a bit more clear than it is. Alas.....

Next week, we're going to ask ourselves: "What if Captain Ahab just wanted to perform some sick moves". Or something like that.

The Dance of the Rubber People....

Allen's pick of the week gets a big raise in the "class" department, as he goes through all of Welcome to the Ballroom, and asks himself: " can people bend and stretch like that?!" I mean... some jokes basically write themselves, right? Maybe?

Anyway, this week's dance is over, and maybe next week, it'll all go to the dogs. See you then.

The Beat Must Go On!

Before we go into our review of the week, the staff members at T.H.E.M. Anime would like to offer our condolences for the sudden passing of Zac Bertschy. It's always hard to hear about someone as young as him dying, and our thoughts go to his family, both biological and Anime News Network staff alike.

And who gets to follow up on these sad events but Allen. He takes a look at Beatless, which he finds... interesting enough. Meaning that the show apparently raises a lot of issues, but don't really go very indepth with any of them. So take that as you will.

Well, that's our week. It looked like it'd be another pretty normal week, but... no. I hope you all are doing well.

-Stig Høgset.

Addendum (5/28): Carlos went and wrote up an editorial about Zac's passing, so make sure to go read it.
