Putting the Pedal to the Medal.

Allen takes a look at an anime classic this week, and it's Speed Racer, a show that takes the nostalgia medal as long as you grew up with it. But I guess that's how nostalgia work. It's still a decent show as long as you can take in that 60's ridiculousness.

Summer is closing in on us, but we still have some updates to do. Next week will... probably be a disaster. No, really. See you then.

Maybe I'll Sleep on it.

Allen has hardly slept on the job, though, and so he brings the goods on the table again with a review for Napping Princess, which seems to be about a girl that takes powernaps? And has dreams that come with messages, because don't they all? Still, it's a good OAV movie, and one you definitely shouldn't sleep over.

Next week, we might see an end. Not to anything in particular. Just... an end. See you then.

The Garden of Wouldn't You Like To Know?

So yes, Allen actually went and had a look at every episode of the Garden of Sinners franchise, which, to my knowledge, is a series of standalone OAVs that sort of fit together. Probably. Allen wasn't really all that impressed with the show, which tried really hard to be impressive in that obtuse way shows do when they try to come across as deep and mysterious, but he didn't find it to be a complete catastrophe either.

Maybe he'd rather have a good nap than trying to untangle this. Maybe next week. See you all then.

A.I.C.O. in Tarnation.

So yes, our self-professed "grampa" takes a look at a little something called A.I.C.O. Incarnation, which seems to be one of those newfangled soul-searching thingamajigs all dressed up in sci-fi. And it's quite decent too, all things considered. It's so nice when you can introduce something that you would want to watch, eh?

Next week? It's probably not gonna be as much fun, but you can at least rest in the knowledge that it won't be as bad as Fox Spirit Matchmaker. Then again, that would be a tall order to follow, even if you were doing it on purpose. See you next week.

Fox Spirit Jerry Springer.

Actually... that's going too far. It was incredibly rude of me to compare Fox Spirit Matchmaker to perennial trashy TV champion Jerry Springer just like that, so.... Mr. Springer? You have my deepest apologies. You did not deserve that. yeah, this show... it's not very good. In fact, it's confoundingly terrible. It makes me feel sort of lost and defeated, as if the joke is on me for even reviewing this. I think it would be easier to try to make sense of Pop Team Epic than asking myself why this show was made to begin with. I just don't know anymore.

Allen will bring us something next week. I think I need to go lay down a bit. If you'll excuse me.

Ninja Girl and Cloistered Emperor.

Our contribution for the week is for another show that takes on the antics of a certain sorta well known Japanese celebrity known as Oda Nobunaga, and who better to deal with Ninja Girl and Samurai Master season 1 than our own big boss, Carlos Ross? And hey, it's a fun show too.

Is next week's show going to be much fun? Well... no, no it's not. Dear God, no. See you then.
