My Little Polybear: Friendship is Murder.

Starting off today's update, Allen takes a look at Haganai: I don't have many friends NEXT, which is, as advertized, a follow-up to the original Haganai. It goes some ways in improving the first season, though not enough if Allen has any say in it.

Tim follows up this with Danganronpa: The Animation, a show based on a game he rather liked and a show he would have liked to see getting a better adaptation, because this one does not pass muster.

Things'll probably turn out a bit better next week, so stay with us.

The Righteous and the Cursed.

Well, I do declare; I never thought it'd ever happen again, but we have a new hentai review for all you discering adults out there. Nick sat down and watched Masquerade, and surprised himself by thinking "Hmm, you know, this isn't really all that bad." The reason for that can basically be summed up by imagining this show as two people in the car. The plot sits in front, driving the story, while sex sits in the back seat and occasionally reminds everyone that it's there.

Meanwhile, Gifu Dodo!! Kanetsugu and Keiji is NOT porn, but I'm sure our main twosome of righteous heroes might already have inspired lots of yaoi doujinshi with the sheer force of their manliness. This show is basically Feudal Lords of the North Star with a heavy dollop of eccentricities added for the sake of spicing things up.

Well, that's it for this week. See you guys again next week.

Yesterday once more.

Well, I can hope, at least. That way, I wouldn't be a day late. ^^;;

Anyway, we have two reviews that shoulda been up yesterday, so... let us wait no longer.

Carlos decides to add his opinion on the Yuri pileup that is Yuru Yuri, wanting more people to watch it, even if his rating doesn't deviate too much from Aiden's.

Nick, however, is none too pleased about Eden of the East Movie II: Paradise Lost, finding it to be a piss-poor conclusion to an otherwise relatively appealing series.

Well, that's it. See you again next week, probably on Monday.

All's fair in love and war. Except not really.

It must've been in the minds of whoever made Nick's sacrificial victim on the review table for this week, though; Magical Warfare, the story about the two brothers who... fell in love with the same woman, and the dire consequences it had on the lands? And possibly the worst Harry Potter ripoff the anime world has seen.

I mentioned a personal milestone in the last update I did, didn't I? Well, here it it: my review #300, and for none other than The Twelve Kingdoms, a review that's way, WAY overdue. Believe me; I'm kicking myself for not going for this show until now, because it didn't take me long watching this until I was ready to join the choir singing its praise.

Well, that's it for now. See you guys again next week.

"Who ya gonna call to repair my wall?"

A bit early with the update today (ironically enough), but since I'm working late today, I thought earlier would be better in this case.

Anyway, Allen leads off with Ghost Hunt, which takes a pretty traditionally Japanese view on the subject of ghosts and ghost exorcisms. And it's good.

Meanwhile, Nick takes a look at a (literally) bigger problem with his overdue review of Attack on Titan, which is a show I've been wanting to watch for the longest time now, and Nick's not about to convince me to do otherwise.

So yes, that's what we had on our plate this Monday. Next week will see us back with more reviews and maybe even a little bit of a milestone. See you around.
