Sour Grapes

So I promised bad yuri last week.....and I'm delivering this time around.

Let me just say that I don't have a lot of nice things to say about today's pick. Somehow, this also ended up being our 2000th review so....woo? Maybe I should have held off a week after all. ^^:

Allen will be on it next week which a much more interesting and much less problematic piece next week, though, and I have some good stuff coming in the next couple of weeks, too. Until then!

Horse Girl Love Triangle

And she's back! With two new reviews this week!

First off, I took on an odd little adaptation of a yuri harem manga (yes, it's a thing). It's trashy as all hell, but manages to be cute at least some of the time.

Meanwhile, I've also been watching that odd little "horse girl" show that made a bit of a splash earlier this year (it makes a good exercise show), and Stig reviewed it in the meantime. He's not that into the idol aspect, but to him it's mostly a harmless, good-natured sports show, if one that can feel a bit low-stakes to him.

So, assuming I get it together, we'll test the whole "she'll give anything a good review if it's yuri" argument next week. Take care!

Kase-san and Healing Anime


Didn't expect that, right? Nico-chan holds the fort down today, since Stig is taking a well-deserved vacation.

I actually also wrote a review for the first time in way long, and it's probably no real surprise that it's a yuri OAV that a LOT of us queer girls were excited about. Let's just say that if you were at Anime Expo this year, you were lucky indeed....let's hope they make a full series sometime soon.

Before he took off, meanwhile, Stig took on the second season of Amanchu!, and some shenanigans aside he's into it.

Stay cool, keep on reading THEM Anime Reviews, and remind Carlos that it's their fault anybody calls me "Nico-chan".

Virtual Corruption and Depravity... Maybe.

Allen takes a look at Caligula and wonders exactly what it has to do with the historical character in question. It does have something to do with powers in at least two senses of the word, though, and finds the show by and large interesting. Could've been more interesting, though.

Either way, that's our lot. Next week, someone else will be diving into the updates since I'll be off on a trip. Have a nice summer, everyone.

End of the Line, Pal...

So yeah, sorry about forgetting the update this Monday. The reason is a pain in the neck -- literally; a serious cramp stretch in a neck muscle has left me with the fun task of having to go get treated and relying on medication to help me sleep at night. So yes, two days late.

And what a ride Allen had. He took one look at Endride and liked what he saw. Well, at least once it got moving -- it's a bit of a slow-burner, at least at first.

So yeah.... better the middle of the week than the end of the ride, right? See you next week.

-Stig Høgset.
