Well, thank God the SNAFU is at least alright.

Two new reviews for you this week.

Allen leads us off with My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU, which he basically calls "Haganai done even more right". Sounds like a good deal, right?

Nick, however, continues our update with the awesomely titled Brynhildr in the Darkness and... well, basically finds it as far away on the other side of the awesome side of the spectrum as it could possibly get, and the whole Norse mythology link being a complete lie was the least of its problems. At least it's off my queue now.

Well... one out of two is at least a decent haul. See you again next week.

Magic, Science, and Mediocre Anime

Apologies for missing last week's update, but we're back this week with two shows. Allen brings us last year's Red Data Girl, which he found interesting but prone to meandering. Read on to see more of his thoughts.

Meanwhile, I reviewed the controversial Yasuomi Umetsu's latest effort, Winter 2014's Wizard Barristers. A few potentially interesting plot elements just aren't enough to save this show from being a mess, in my opinion.

We should be back next week barring major delays. Take care.

Dallos, We Have a Problem.

Lame jokes and mismatched Texas cities aside, today's pick is an interesting one. Allen watched one of Mamoru Oshii's early works, the Sci-Fi OAV Dallos, and he says it has plenty to offer in spite of having not aged entirely well and feeling somewhat incomplete.

That's all we've got today, sad to say; some of our reviewers have been busy lately. We should be back next week with the usual load, however.
