Trying to keep up the pace...

While summer isn't exactly over, I've returned to work in at least two ways. So, let's have some reviews.

Brad leads us off with a vaguely historical and slightly nonsensical comedy of sorts revolving around fireworks and going to the moon. Oh! Edo Rocket is its name.

Seeing as summer break's giving me lots of opportunities to watch stuff when I'm not mountain-hopping, I've got three new reviews for you. First off is The Little Prince, a show vaguely based on the famous book by a famous French aviator. Whether Antoine de Saint Exupéry's book translates well to an overtly cutesy children's show is still up in the air, so read on and judge by yourself.

Next up on the list is the sequel to an earlier favorite of mine. The show in question is Galaxy Railways 2: Eternal Divergence, and it's... not quite what the doctor ordered.

Lastly, Wagaya no Oinari-sama tries its hands on Japanese folklore, but doesn't quite manage to keep its focus there, to the detriment of the show.

Well, that's it for now, although we've got some nearly-finished stuff that will be included shortly, we hope.

Thank you for reading, and good night.
