narutaki_icon_4040 Whoawhoa! It is definitely con season looking at the licensing list! But I’m particularly excited about a Magic Kaito TV anime series!

Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA ILLYA 2wei! #003: Dark Side of the Illya

July 25, 2014

hisui_icon_4040 So this episode seemed to determined to make sure someone finished their anime fetish bingo with a single episode. If your card has BDSM, incest, lolicon, yuri, and non-con all in a row then you were probably a winner. Or a loser.It all depends on how you want to play it off. I don’t want to beat a dead horse but there was a distinct squick factor to the first season but it was all the same level of squick that was in the manga. That one OVA chapter was pretty horrible but such are OVAs for a show like this. While nothing this season has fully reached the depths of depravity of that hell-scape they seem to be making already sort of questionable scenes in the manga even more intense.

To have some positivity I will say that this, the end card has set the bar insanely high. I feel like all the other end cards are now just competing for second place. 70’s shoujo Shiro is probably the best part of the whole affair.

S.W.A.T. Reviews: Summer 2014 Pt. 3

July 21, 2014

Follow us directlyon Stitcher, or on iTunes

The premise of these reviews is simple: watch the first episode of a series and then immediately sit down to record a review mini-podcast. The reviews are five- to ten-minutes long and entirely off the cuff. As always we only review new shows (so no sequels or continuations) and try to avoid anything that just looks outright awful. These are the last batch from the new season:

Listen – First impressions of Nobunaga Concerto from Fuji TV. It is streaming on Crunchyroll.

Listen – First impressions of Tokyo ESP from Xebec. It is streaming on Hulu and Funimation.

Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA ILLYA 2wei! #002: We are all Cancers

July 17, 2014

hisui_icon_4040 I am a Cancer as well. Not because I watched this episode. I’m not denying that is also true but what I am talking about is the fact that I was born on July 21st. So like Illya and Miyu my astrological symbol is also Cancer. In fact if I was born one day earlier I would share their birthday. Like Tatsuko I could only lie and say my birthday is the same as theirs. But I am not that sad.

But Tatsuko is the saddest heroine of her own story ever.

(Apparently July 20th has become a cusp day for Cancers so some people don’t consider being born on the 20th being a Cancer anymore. Then again it is ALMOST like Zodiac signs are silly superstitionalist malarkey that make Neil Degrasse Tyson cry.)

Also you might wonder why Bazett is the top photo of the post when she does not even appear in this episode. One: She does appear. She is briefly in the new opening. Two: This is my blog. I put whatever I want at the top. If I want more Bazett in the posts we get more Bazett. Just be grateful I don’t randomly throw her and/or Saber at the top of all the posts. You know I will do it.
