Why so serious?

That was pretty much my question after having finished My First Girlfriend is a Gal, because I'm not sure the last two episodes were a good idea for the show as a whole. That said, despite the generic "found this ol' romantic rival plot at the bottom of this chest I thought I lost back in the 80's" angle the show tries to end on, this show managed to be quite fun most of the time.

That's our lot this week. Next week, we'll probably have something that hasn't been run through the Censorbot quite as heavily. See you all then.

And You Thought There is Never a G.I.R.L. Online?

Yeah, now that would just be silly, wouldn't it? I mean... the main lead in And You Thought There is Never a Girl Online? pretty much learned that yes, there is a lot of girls online, and some of them play as guy characters. Not that the show is full of lectures about never assuming player gender is character gender, but it does know how to have some fun with the subject.... among other aspects of the big MMORPG lifestyle. (As it were.)

Next week, we might talk about girls again, but that might depend on whether I can shake off this cold so that my head starts working properly again. Fevers are never fun. But at least I can do site updates, so... silver lining and all? See you all then.

Cooler than Ice. (And how?)

As promised, Nicoletta is here with a review for a great show, especially if you belong to the LGBT community. Then again, if you do, you probably already heard about Yuri!!! on ICE, watched it, loved it and bought the shipping T-shirt and complimentary ice skates. It's good.

Next week, I'll be taking a look at a show that I initially dreaded a bit, but turned out surprisingly well. Because that has never happened to me before, am I right?

See you all then.

Re:Location is the Key.

So yeah, me and Tim reviewed Re:Zero -Starting Life in Another World-, which was not an easy review to write. Then again, that's fair, since it was also not an easy show to watch. It had a set of rather big pluses and minuses, and for both good and bad, it does also not hold back. Not even an inch. It does come recommended, but the show also has a tendency to encourage its viewers to whip out the but's. As you can see.

Next week, Nicoletta will be back with something new. And it's good too, so look forward to that.
