Flip the Flap on my MMO.

Well, we almost had nothing to offer last week, but hologram Carlos came to the rescue.

As for this week: suddenly, we have two.

Carlos starts us off with Flip Flappers, and although he finds it good, it's also a bit unnerving with its source of fanservice.

My show of the week, on the other hand, could use a little bit more fanservice. It's Overlord, and mildly psychotic or not, Albedo is a looker to be sure. And weirdly enough, despite being a power fantasy tool and a weirdly blatant one at that, it's surprisingly fun. (Not to mention somewhat nasty. Not for the kiddies this.)

Next week, Allen returns once again with a show whose title is weirdly appropriate, if a bit "in the last minute". See you all then.

I was afraid of that.

"That" being us not having any reviews ready for this week. Real life can be a right ol' bastard of a taskmaster sometimes.

Well, we'll just have to endeavour to have something for next Monday. Hope to see y'all then.

Review submission detected: Carlos has reviewed Black Lion. Warning: violence, bad scripts, over-the-top dubbing. Viewer discretion advised.

Holographic emergency reviewer protocol completed and powering down.

The Pharneval Menace.

Running the update a little early, because they are not fun to do near midnight.

Anyway, Allen throws himself into Karneval, and wishes he had something better to show for all his cuts and bruises. But the show is not a kind mistress, and certainly not a subtle one.

I can only hope next week will prove more fruitful, but that remains to be seen.

Update: So, yeah, I forgot to set the rating when I did the update yesterday. (It's on one star by default.) As Allen reminded me today; It's bad, but it's not that bad. It IS my bad, however, so... sorry for the potential confusion. The bad has been corrected for the mildly better.

Born to be Wild in the Valley of Motorboating Enthusiasts.

Some of you lucky Americans out there has had this show available for quite some time, but I had to wait for High School DxD BorN to be released on a physical media to be able to watch it. And while I did walk away from it mildly disappointed, that was mostly because the first two seasons were so much fun. This one was... also fun, but that was more of a main draw rather than a nice bonus this time around. Still worth it, though.

Oh, if only I could look into the future and see if we'll be getting anything nice for next week. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Re:Scrapped Princess.

So yeah, looks like Allen's got a second opinion for you this time around, but for a show that hasn't seen a review in quite some time. And he still adores Scrapped Princess, Allen does. Despite its flaws, it hearkens back to when fantasy was serious business, but without the gritty darkness that has seeped into too may a show lately.

Well... broad statements aside, that's our lot for this week. Next week, we'll be looking at some birds, probably. See you all then.

A Jin in Your Hand is Better Than Two Right Behind You.

Yet here Allen is, with two seasons of A-Jin: Demi-Human behind him as far as his review queue goes. It was almost a step up from the average too, if it hadn't contained so many shouty bits. From Allen, that is, because nobody is immune of the dreaded "shouting at the screen" when things stop making sense.

Now, while Allen's been working his ass off for us for quite some time now, I'm not sure if we can promise you all a new review next Monday. Dunno if it's the post-Christmas blues that still linger, or if it's just old between-seasons ennui, but it's certainly something going on.

Well, we'll see.
