Terminally Dandy.

Allen starts off this week with Looking Up at the Half Moon, a tale about idiots in love if the description is anything to go by.

Meanwhile, Nick has some problems trying to peg Space Dandy as anything in particular, before settling on "weird-ass 50's experimental space opera" (not his exact words.) He's apparently (mostly) quite happy with it.

Well, see you again next week. Stay healthy and do not under any circumstance piss off the nurse.

"Dost thou have any coffin pills?"

So yes, we're a bit late with this review. Apologies for that.

At any rate, I'm not sure what to make of Chaika ~the Coffin Princess~, but at least you can't really charge it for false advertising. Mostly. What you can charge it for, however, is throwing a slapdash ending on a really good show. That is a floggin' offence right there.

Well, at least I got an answer to my hypothetical question "Is there a worse thing than a show not getting an end?" I just wish it wasn't "Oh, you have no idea. But you will... soon."

If nothing else, it's not the end of us... yet. We'll see you again next Monday. Hopefully.

Rock 'em Sock 'em Reviewin'.

This week, Allen visits another show made in CG. He's not quite as happy with Straight Title Robot Anime, and not just because of its apparently extremely self-referential name. Possibly. Apparently, someone didn't get the "all's well that ends well" memo.

Oh well...

Next time, we have a review for another show that kind of botched up its ending. Is this a rising trend in anime or something?

I Can't Understand Why Hell Hasn't Frozen Over Yet.

So yeah, Tim watched I can't understand what my husband is saying, a story about an otaku husband and his office-worker wife and probably thought something along the lines of "Well... that was actually kind of sweet". And... yeah, it is. It neither mocks, nor glorifies. It simply is, and is also better for it. Having also watched it (as well as collaborated with Tim on many other reviews), I even got to write a closing paragraph. The show also got a sequel, and given the event that happened at the end of this season, I'm quite curious where it plans on going next.

I said so at the guest closing statement too, didn't I? It's true, though.

Next week, I shall try to aspire to get a long overdue review up. That is, if any of the other writers doesn't throw something in there in the between. See you again.

Case Hosed.

In our single review for the week, Allen takes a look at The Case Files of Young Kindaichi Returns. He's quite pleased with it.

Well, see you again.

"Kokkuri-san, Kokkuri-san, can you see the future?"

Kokkuri-san, Kokkuri-san, if I call on you, will you spend twelve episodes making me feel (mostly) uncomfortable? Will you confront me with uninvited house guests and stampede me with jokes about bad people?

Allen also wants to know the future. Will it be like in Karen Senki, where the robot overlords have taken over? Will the future be made in three dimensional computer graphics and lots of hi-octane action scene shootouts? Will some things make no damn sense at all, yet be strangely appealing somehow?

Kokkuri-san, Kokkuri-san. Will we also return next week with more reviews? Will we also see you guys again then? Yes? Well, then....
