Welcome to the Hinarchy.

Well, I picked an odd one this week. From the synopsis of Hinamatsuri, you'd think you would get something along the lines of Bunny Drop, or maybe Alice and Zoroku with a young guy instead. As it turns out, the latter isn't quite as far from the truth, but this show certainly has a whole brand of comedy for its very own. It's a very fun show... some potential caveats notwithstanding.

Weird seems to be the order of the day for next week too, with Allen bringing in something with the soul of this show, but still wants to be taken seriously. See you in a week.

Hao Do They Do The Thing That They Do?

Well, obviously I picked the two very worst alternatives for my Haoliners experience, because Allen gave Flavors of Youth, and it's actually pretty decent? So... either the Devil himself is cursing the sudden change of climate or... well, I could have chosen my Haoliners a bit better.

So yeah, that's our lot for this week. See you all next Monday.

Allen Does What Stig Don't...

..or however that commercial slogan went. Anyway, I remember commenting in my Fox Spirit Matchmakers review that I knew the Chinese animation industry could do better than this, and that they already had. And here comes Allen with Big Fish and Begonia and proves me entirely right; it's a lovely little movie. Well... OAV.

Next week, it's another look at "animation from China" that's also not as awful as my own two contributions so far, so.... hooray for that? And see you all then?

Ye Olde Hero's Tale....

Well, the show itself is fairly recent, but Granblue Fantasy: The Animation is still based on a videogame with sort of an oldschool feel to it, and made by people who earlier worked on stuff like the Final Fantasy series. The anime itself sets us off in what can only be called a nice start. Will there be more? I dunno -- one can only hope, I guess.

And that's our lot. We're a bit uncertain what we'll have for you next week, so let's just wait and see.
