Tired and Burnin'

So yeah, I was supposed to make this week's update yesterday. Personally, I blame the ridiculous heat we've had for at least a week now, and it's just now that it recently cooled down a bit outside that I remembered that Monday was yesterday. So yeah, sorry about that.

Anyway, Allen has Tiger and Bunny for you all today, a show that thinks superhero culture needs some more good ol' fashioned corporate corruption to liven things up. And it does so with aplomb if Allen has anything to say about it. And he does, otherwise we wouldn't have an update.

Next week will be a bit about another dark side to corporate culture, but at the same time not so much. See you all then. Unless another heatwave will hit the shores of Norway again. In which case huuuurgh!

Who Is The Bigger Monster?

Allen takes a look at the third season of Attack on Titan, a show that's gathered no small amount of infamy for being a show about gigantic, nearly invulnerable humanoids who like to eat people for seemingly no reason, and they aren't even the biggest problem most people have to contend with. Well... figuratively speaking.

Which is an interesting show (and concept) to mull over when not long ago, a very regular human being chose to set fire to not only the main office of Kyoto Animation, but in that process very intentionally ending as many lives as he could. This was confirmed to be 34 people, with many more gravely injured. So we at THEM ask you to please keep the victims of this tragic event in your minds. And if you can offer a more monetary contribution, Sentai Filmworks is running a donation effort for the sake of helping Kyoto Animation with their journey of recovery.

And on that very sobering note, we wish you farewell for now. See you again next week.

Hitoribocchi no Marumaru Dokidoki Knick Knack Paddy Whack Give The Dog a Bone.

This would hardly be the first show I've reviewed with a really cumbersome title, but Hitori Bocchi no Marumaru Seikatsu is still kind of a mouthful as titles go. It's an alright show, though, as slice-of-lives go, the only downside being that it has some fierce competition among some of its older peers, many of which I have reviewed for this site. The bar is set quite high in the CGDCT area of animedom.

Well, that's it for now. We're still in a bit of vacation mode, so we'll see what we can come up with next Monday. See you all then.

A Civil Servant at Midnight

It's just about midnight here in Cali and I'm almost out of time to do the update that Stig entrusted me with!

Also I suppose I only count as a civil servant if you extent that to include college professors. ^^;

But while Stig's on vacation, it's time for me to bring you Allen's latest review, which is a good-but-not-great occult show.

It's good to be back, and I hope to bring you some more reviews soon!

What Do You Do When Someone Takes The Expression "Go Figure" Literally?

Apparently, you get Allen's pick of the week, Amazing Stranger, though how much of a stranger our main lead is to all the strangeness around him remains to be seen. What might be strange, though, is that Allen found this to be an appealing show for all its otaku-baity personality. Amazing, right?

Well, things might not necessarily turn any less strange next week. See you all then.
