It's not a secret when you tell other people about it, you know.

This week's review is of a somewhat popular anime from 2008; the first season of Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu, which deals with a closet otaku schoolgirl. Click on this pretty blue link to find out my personal opinion on it.

And that's it for now. Stay tuned next Monday for another review from Bradley. Bye!

Truckin' Like the Do-Dah Man

Here's the promised con report for Anime Expo 2009, from our new con reporter Robert Lu. He's got some excellent photos in that huge wall of text- be sure to check those out, especially the ones with Morning Musume.

See you soon,

Do Not Read This Review

When watching anime, going into a series you've never heard anything about is usually a recipe for misery. But taking a risk with Ga-Rei Zero, a yuri suspense that aired last year to very little fanfare, ended up being a very rewarding risk. If you haven't seen it yet, it's worth giving it a look.

Just one caveat: don't read my review. Not because it's a bad review, but because this anime is just best watched if you go into it knowing absolutely nothing. Here's some cheesecake if you need some extra persuasion though:

This can only end in one way.

Next week goes to Tim, when he'll be reviewing another otaku-centric comedy series. But we may update sooner than that: our intrepid con reporter Robert Lu has written up a very long (very, very long) report on Anime Expo. That will be up by the end of the week.

If you have any comments or questions on my reviews, or about the site, please drop me a line at bcmeek[at] . Replace the [at] with an @. You can still follow my Twitter feed, where I Tweet up a storm about anime. I've been watching the first episodes of the new summer season and Tweeting my impressions: think of it as a THEM Review Lite.

That's all for this week. We'll see you soon.

Ask and you shall (eventually) receive.

The K-On! review promised last week but never delivered is finally here! Click here to read Stig and I's opinion on the series.

The next two weeks will be made up exclusively of reviews by Bradley, with Call Me Tonight coming at you next Monday. Look forward to them, and until then, see you later!

(I also updated my reviews to include box art for most any series. I also rewrote some of my reviews, including Medabots.)
