|I Just Lost the Game
What? Are you gonna cry about it now? It's just a stupid meme.
Kidding aside, I've got more anime goodness this week to share with you. Kaiji is a 2007 anime from director Yuzo Sato, who seems to have found his niche directing stylish gambling thrillers for Madhouse. If you don't mind manly tears and strange character designs with really, really big chins, click here. Really, anyone who likes a good anime will like this, but I suppose I can understand why some people would be put off by the character designs. Kaiji looks like he could cut rocks with his nose.
Hopefully you won't have to wait so long for my next review. Also, even though our website is over five years old, which makes us dinosaurs on the 'Net, some of us here are "hip" and "with it" enough to use Twitter. THEM Anime Review now has it's own Twitter feed now, which we update to let you know when we've updated the site. Think of it as a ghetto RSS feed to tide you over until we figure out how to get that working. Or you could think of it as a way to show your friends you have very refined taste in anime. Or at least great tastes in anime critics. Right? Right?

I'm back with more anime goodness. This time, I'm covering the second season of the very popular slice of life series Minami-ke. This anime really grew on me since the last time I wrote about it, and click here to find out why.

You don't want to miss this week's review. I've got a series with so many good things in it that otaku love. Kick-ass action? Check. Charismatic female "alien" in skimpy, skin tight clothes? Check. Compelling plot and characters? Check and check. There's even gender switching, science fiction and some romance thrown in for good measure. This is very high on my list of things I'd love to see licensed in the US. In short, check out Birdy the Might: Decode. For the long version, though, click here..

Yeah, I'm not all that big on titles for updates. Anyway, we have two new reviews today:
First up is my review of Zoku Sayonara Zetsbuou Sensei. I wonder if Nozomu would go into despair if he found out his own show had a sequel?
Next we have Diane's review of Xam'd: Lost Memories, the new show from the creators of Eureka Seven. Click here to read it.
That's it for now. Until the next update, see ya.

No, the title isn't refering to the fact that we've actually updated our review database three times in the last two weeks. It's about Shikabane Hime, a brand new anime that's a collaboration between Gainax and Feel. Funimation has already licensed it, and is subbing and streaming the series as it's being aired in Japan on sites like Hulu, Joost, and Youtube. That's amazing, and you know what really sweetens the deal? The series is actually pretty good.
