Planet of the Stars.

This week, Allen charts his course towards Planetarian, which is kind of a "the day after" show, except more like... many, many years after. And it's based on a game by Key. Boy, I haven't watched any of that since Clannad. I am curious, and Allen said it was good. Maybe worth lookin into.

And that's that. Next week, we might go a bit more koko loco. Something.

See you all then.

Weathering With Shinkai.

Allen takes a look at Weathering With You, a movie by the well known (for a reason) Makoto Shinkai. And it's good, as usual, in that Shinkai Makoto way.

Look, I haven't watched any of his movies. The main complaint I hear is that to watch his movies, you really have to be into his... thing. You know, the way he develops the character, not his... you know...

...actually, never mind. It's Shinkai. If you love his stuff, go watch. That's what Allen is trying to say.

Next week, we'll be thinking of the planet. See you all then.

Swimming With The Afterlife.

Well... I guess it would be more accurate to say "bathing with the dead", because my show of this week is Yuuna and the Haunted Hot Springs, which has really made me aware of how big my list of "enjoyable fanservice shows" is getting. And yes, it is enjoyable in a very old-school way. I recommend taking a dip with this show.

And that's it for this week. Next week, let's talk about the weather. Won't that be nice?

Love for the Elderly.

Today, Allen races to keep up with After the Rain, a show that centers around a bit of a May-December romance. Or at least an attempt to for one of the parties involved.

Whoa, that got hot and steamy, didn't it. Oh, the scandalousness of it all. Next week, we're going to have to take a cold shower. Or a.... hot spring? Which has a chilling aspect to it, but not really? Uh....
