Straight as an Arrow.

Because the topic of this conversation is archery, and the second time Kyoto Animation helms an anime with a predominantly male main cast, Allen gives Tsurune a look. It's... OK, he thinks, which is pretty rare for a Kyoto Animation feature, which tends to be at least good most of the time.

There is not much more to say here, I guess. We'll see each other again next week.

Through Fire and Time We Carry On.

Allen takes a look at Fireworks, a movie about rewinding time to make up for past mistakes, which is a plot element that sounds awfully familiar to me for some reason. He doesn't mind that much, though, since the movie is actually pretty good.

And hey, even more good news: now that we found ourselves a new webhost, I've been able to put the screenshots back in reviews where I wasn't able to earlier due to an increasingly problematic 403 error that afflicted more and more of our site AND forum. (Which, incidentally, is the reason why our review is one day late; I wasn't being tardy this time.) That problem is gone now, though, and it's so nice not having to worry about problems when uploading reviews, or even finding the one word or marking that triggers it if it happens. Words like "again" or "having". Yes, seriously.

Anyway, next week we should be back on schedule again. See you all then.

The Devil Wears Alpaca.

Sweaters, that is. But only after some urging from her new aide. See, I had the pleasure of giving As Miss Beelzebub Likes It a look, and... well, let's just say I don't think a lot of people expected Hell to look like it does here. Which is not a bad thing, necessarily.

403 problems aside, that was a pretty pleasant way to start the new week. And hey, next week might be even better. See you then.

Cool Story, Bro!

Allen, Allen, Allen. You seriously need a vacation, man. I thought I was torturing myself with Fox Spirit Matchmaker, but then he goes ahead and subjects himself to My Sister, My Writer, a show already so infamous for its many failures that there's not going to be any recouping from this. We've hit the low point here, right? We have to have hitten the low point, because none of us here want to see any potentially deeper segments of this particular rabbit hole.

Next week, it's all going to Hell. But don't worry. It's not going to hurt. Well, not like this, at least. See you all then.
