Night on Boob Mountain.

Two more reviews for you this time.

Tim starts off with Little Witch Academia, a short but sweet OAV that does not require to be burned on a stake.

And I'm continuing one of the shows Tim started with Heaven's Lost Property: Forte, a harem chock full of fanservice that he ended up kind of enjoying. I'm certainly not going to naysay him on that, and thankfully, the second season keeps up with the first.

And that's it. We may or may not show up next week with more reviews, but we'll at least keep up a biweekly scedule despite finally catching up with our backlog. Later, folks.

Rebirth and Return

Today we got just two new reviews.

First up is Carlos with his review of Return of Buddha, continuing his series of reviews of the Happy Science religion anime film series. Only clicking on the link will answer whether or not he liked it.

Then we got Nick with his review of the pleasant but not groundbreaking Eden of the East Movie 1: The King of Eden, based on the popular 2009 anime that I reviewed nearly three years back.

We'll return next week with new anime reviews. See you then!

Just when you thought we'd forgotten all about you this week...

Live from Austin, Texas and points throughout Planet Earth, here's THEM! (And the crowd goes wild!)

Allen starts us off with his summation of the prequel series Rozen Maiden: Ouverture, which he ultimately deems a superfluous and unwanted addition to an otherwise enjoyable franchise.

Diane stops by with a favorable review of the film A Letter to Momo, a gently paced story about a young girl learning to cope with loss with the help of three friendly, if odd-looking guardian spirits.

Nick draws the shortest straw of the lot this week with the cyberpunk short-webisode series Blame! which he scathingly derides as a derivative, nonsensical slideshow that can be at best characterized as experimental anime gone horribly wrong.

We'll see you next Monday, of course, and if you for some strange reason can't wait that long, feel free to join us on the forums. Enjoy!

I have some sort of power!

Today's two reviews involve leads with special powers.

First up is recent SHAFT series Sasami-san@Ganbaranai. Aiden didn't like it too much, which is surprising for someone usually big on SHAFT's work.

Next up is the magic harem fantasy comedy (whew!) Familiar of Zero, an anime we've been requested for years to review. Nick was more than up to the task, and although he doesn't find it to be the best show ever, he does find it satisfactory.

That's it for the this week. We'll return next Monday.
