X Marks The Human.

Allen's pick of the week is Human Crossing, which he finds to be an interesting collage of various kinds of human behavior, both good and bad.

And that's our lot. Today, humanity. Next week... THE GODS! Or Goddesses. Or something akin to that. See you all then.

My SNAFU Can't Be This Climax.

Yep, Allen gets to finish a multiseason show, and a really good one at that. He walks with My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU Climax all the way to the end, and finds it a satisfying conclusion to a really good show. A snafu in any other name, I guess.

And that's that. Next week, x marks the spot. Or something to that accord.

"Can You Remember Familial Love?"

I'm a bit uncertain of the status of the company that once released the first four seasons of the TV series, but I am at least glad that Aniplex chose to let us have an official release for Natsume's Book of Friends the Movie: Ephemeral Bond, because it's an absolutely wonderful movie that encompasses a lot of the best parts of the franchise. And at this point, I've even heard some scant rumors of another OAV/movie being in production. Or at least about to be.

And that's it for this week. Next week, we'll take a look at the love life of adolescents that's rated just about as highly as this. Can we even wait? Let's just do so and see, why not.

Morning Twilight.

Allen's pick of the week is a bit on the low-stakes side, but he presents a "yes/no" question in "does Hakubo really need a romantic antagonist to work?" His rating reflects the "not really" part, and if you think otherwise, well... that's what rating adjustments are for.

Of course, "conflict" can mean so many things, and next week, I'll have the pleasure of revisiting sort of an old friend of mine who sort of proved that, no, a show doesn't necessarily need an antagonist to make you cry. See you all then.

The Cat Reruns.

Alas, while our show of the week is made by none other than Mari Okada, Allen still finds A Whisker Away kinda middle of the road, mostly because it seems to borrow a weirdly high amount of stuff from another somewhat famous movie.

That's it for this week. Next week, it's time to be classy.

The Modest Operandi.

Allen takes a modest look at Modest Heroes, made by Studio Ponoc, and finds it a moderate effort from Studio Ponoc. And that's always the worst kind of curse for all studios and not only Studio Ponoc, isn't it? Because when you're outright terrible, unlike the averageness of this product form Studio Ponoc, people will still come see you out of curiosity, even if they'll hate every minute of it. Unlike this movie from Studio Ponoc.

Next week contribution is not a product from Studio Ponoc, though, but it's still just modestly average. See you all then.
