The Secret Life of Where's Waldo.

Turns out, it's Tim's and my turn again, as we bring you the review for Kakushigoto, and the answer to the question "What if the creator of Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei wanted to make his own version of Bunny Drop?" Yeah, that sounds intriguing, doesn't it? It's also good, thankfully, and whether you can consider it a good thing, less... sardonic than the creator's earlier work.

And that's that. Next week, Allen will take us all home. See you then.

"Let's Turn That Crown Upside Down."

So yeah, our pick of the week is a bit of a special one. That's why I brought Tim along for this one, as Kemono Michi: Rise Up is an isekai show about a wrestler who loves animals being brought into a different world and asked to... kill animals. Well, monster animals, granted, but for our main lead, that makes preciously little difference. Nor the fact that said animals in question might very well be incredibly dangerous mythological beasts. In fact, the biggest danger to our erstwhile hero is obtaining enough funds to keep his dream alive.

And that's it for this week. Next week is... still a bit up in the air, and not because it's in the middle of a huge pile drive, but Christmas is sneaking ever closer, never mind that all of us -- and I mean all of us -- probably also have a lot on our mind these days.

Well... see you all later.

Let's Hear It From Quadriphilosopistic Man.

Is that even a word? No? Well, the protagonist of Allen's pick of the week, The Disastrous Life of Saiki K: Reawakened, surely have a lot of things to say, at least to his own head. If I read Allen's review correctly, the guy isn't very sociable, even if he kind of have to.

And that's that. Next week is a bit up in the air. It depends on who reaches the finish line first, but we will have something. See you all then.

Theft, Murder and Arson Jaywalking.

This week, Allen takes a look at what appears to be a period drama in Onihei, and while he likes it, he also finds himself a bit puzzled by all the liberties its taking.

As for next week, the jaywalking aspects are really gonna come into play, at least from a narrative standpoint. See you all then.

Knowing It's Half The Show.

I didn't know it at the time when I wrote the review for the first 49 episodes, but with this second part, I will be seeing GeGeGe no Kitaro through to its very end in what turned out to be a 97 episode run in total. So... does the remaining 48 episodes manage to keep up the level of entertainment we got in the first 49 episodes? The answer to that is... definitely yes.

Well, that was another week. Next Monday, Allen is gonna be on fire for some demons. See you then.
