The Last Yearly Pitch.

Well, actually, we just crossed the border here in Norway, which makes Allen's review of Gurazeni: Money Pitch either the first review of the year or the last one depending on where you are on this planet. As far as Allen is concerned, this show isn't quite a home run, but it fares well enough, particularly during the second inning. I might not have any idea what I'm talking about since Baseball isn't really a sport we do in Norway.

Next week we'll have another good one for you, so stay tuned.

And I hope you all had a nice year, and will continue to have one in 2019.

Happy Holidays to all of our readers.

Normally, we'd do the Reverse Thieves Secret Santa thing this time of the year, but the participation time frame totally passed us by this year, much to our regret.

So instead, in light of the whole Kickstarter project centered around giving it a dub and a Bluray release, I revisited Aria the Animation with a complete rewrite of my original review. It's something I've been wanting to do for quite a while. I will of course do the same for Aria the Natural, Arietta and Aria the Origination as well, as soon as I have the Bluray sets in my hands and have given them another watch. It's a little gesture to the show that is still my very favorite to this day, even among an increasing amount of amazing, quiet slice-of-lives.

As for what we'll be ringing in the new year with... well, we'll have to wait and see.

See you in 2019.

The Ghost of Mirai Future.

Yes, I know; the department of redundant redunancy.

There is nothing redundant about Allen's pick of the week, though. He watches Mamoru Hosoda's latest movie, Mirai, and finds it well worth his time. Because hey, it's Mamoru Hosoda.

And wouldn't you know it, next Monday is actually Christmas eve. Will we have something up then too? Mmmmmaybe. Perhaps you should just check by just in case.

Third Time's the Narm.

Hello, everyone. This week, we have Overlord III for you all. By this time, you will probably know what you're getting yourself into, and as such, you're most likely wondering whether the show has managed to keep up the same quality as the first two season, to which my answer is "....yes." That is to say, it does as far as story, comedy and overall feel goes. Yet, it's clear that the show starts threading deep water here. Well, read for yourself.

Next week, we will be looking towards the future. See you all then.

-Stig Høgset.

Oh yeah, and we're still having some 403 issues. Screenshots will be added when we have those resolved.

"The Princess is Not on This Side of the Wall...."

Hello, everyone. Nicoletta is back with another review. She takes a look at Princess Principal and really likes what she sees. An all-girl team? A steampunk world? Spies? Elements of yuri? It was bound to happen.

Next week will probably be a bit unpleasant, but that's gonna be a given since we have the review for another season of a somewhat grim show. So yeah, see you on the other side.

-Stig Høgset.

Note: By the way, this review were supposed to have some screenshots, but we have some 403 issues that won't let us use certain words at the moment... or HTML image code. Hooray.
