Beyond The Nightmarish Pile of Flesh....

Allen takes a look at Short Peace, a compilation of four short films from four different directors. And you all know what that means, right? Some chance of pretentiousness, but generally quality.

And that's that for this week. See you all next Monday. If I didn't just jinx myself right now, in which case see you all next Tuesday.

Let's Get Real For A Second!

So, Allen gives The Dreaming Boy is a Realist, and... well, he kinda wish he didn't. I guess it's kind of telling when he hopes that our main lead would wake up at the end and finding out it has all been a dream. Yikes.

Well, let's all hunker down and hope things will look up next week. See you all then.

Let's Hear It For The Girl.

Our pick of the week is My Oni Girl, where Netflix seems to lean a little bit into the whole monster girls thing. Allen is reasonably pleased with the movie too, to the point where he might have wished we did half-star inbetweeners. Caveats, right?

And that's our relatively cute and colorful entry for this week. See you again next Monday.

Do It To The Children.

Wait, not for the children? Apparently not, because Black Butler: Book of Circus does not treat its children kindly. Allen does not look too kindly upon this, even if it is depressingly era-appropriate (as he points out.) By and large, he found the series well enough worth the time.

That was certainly something, wasn't it? Well, maybe we'll have.... something.... next week too. Probably. See you all then.

Romances at the Shallow End of the Pool.

Allen takes a look at Taisho Otome Fairy Tale and finds it rather lacking. As in the core ingredients are all there, but it would appear the were just all tossed in the pot at the same time and not cooked long enough. Not sure why I went with the food allegory here, but there we go.

And that's that. Next week will be asking the ol' question "but what about the children?" And the answer is not going to be pleasant. See you all then.

Camp is Work, Work is Life.

This week, Nicoletta and I take a look at the Laid-Back Camp movie, and was more than a bit relieved to find out that our main team of girls reaching adulthood doesn't really take anything away from it. Of course, season 3 returns to their highschool years, but it was still nice to see this nod towards their futures.

And that's that. See you again next week.
