Now with Psycho-Font.
You know a show is something special when it brings yours truly out from a five month hiatus to post something.
Psycho-Pass is, as the title says, a cyberpunk anime. Now, the Japanese do a lot of things well. Tentacle porn, cherry blossoms, and school uniforms are some of these things. Cyberpunk happens to be another one of these things. However, just how well Psycho-Pass will measure up against classics like GiTS or Akira remains to be seen.

Aren’t you CURIOUS to see what happened this week on Japan’s Highschool Mysteries? Yeah? Well look no further, my dear anime connoisseur, this review has got you covered.
Hello all! Sorry for my lack of posts recently; after watching the exercise in monotony that was Space Brothers 05, I found myself lacking the motivation to write up my weekly entry. I’ll probably just combine 05 and 06 into a single review, since the slow pace of that show suits a condensed format. Sometimes, there simply isn’t very much to say about the happenings of Nanba Mutta.
Anyways, I’ll be trying out a new format for this week’s review of Sakamichi No Apollon. Rather than splitting up the review into “plot synopsis” and “thoughts” section, I’ll simply provide a slideshow of screenshots from the episode, with a lengthy/lengthier combined section below. This combined section will likely follow the chronological sequence found in the episode itself. Since I’m assuming readers have already watched, or are planning to watch the episode, there really isn’t a point in long and deliberative dedicated plot summaries. Also, I’ve found that repetition is a bit of a problem, especially with the longer entries. I’m sure you’re all more interested in thematic content anyways. Here we go!
Here, Valmet’s gigantic thighs for your viewing pleasure should you choose not to read this review.
This show never ceases to surprise me. After two straight weeks of crap we finally get an episode that’s…actually somewhat intriguing! Well, it’s still not exactly good, either. But it’s an improvement! And incremental improvements will eventually lead to perfection, right? At least, that’s how it ought to work.
And panties! Somehow I pegged Yuuko as the dark lacy undergarments type...
When this series first started airing, I wondered to myself when the first swimsuit episode would appear. After all, there is a law in Japan that states: any show containing more than two female characters must have at least one beach and/or swimsuit episode. Didn’t take ‘em to show some ghost titties in a bikini. Now Sankarea, on the other hand…
Koko is oblivious to how terrible her show is.
Where do I even start? The premise of this show, being some sort of Cage-ian Lord of War starring a moe main character and with more gunplay, has not exactly lived up to expectations. While in this episode there is shooting a-plenty, it is not the good kind of shooting. Why? I’ll show you why.
OH GOD MY HEART
Well, this week’s episode really hit home on a number of personal and emotional levels, as the groundwork for the complex relationships between the cast begin to take shape. All the major players have now been introduced, and the pace has quickened appreciably. No more are we dealing with the simple trials and tribulations of daily high school lives, oh no. Against the backdrop of jazz, the difficulties of interpersonal relationships and young love emerge: a simultaneously bitter-sweet and enlightening experience that many can identify with. Without further ado, let’s get started with this week’s review of Sakamichi no Apollon. Again, I’m sorry for the length. It’s hitting 1800 words, I believe.
Imagine if this show was set in West Virginia.
Another week brings us another episode of
Kaoru being a fucking pussy the best show of the season. While last week sets us up for all of the romance and drama for the remainder of the series, this week is delves a bit deeper into the relationship of our happy foursome.
The only reason I'm still watching this shit.
Is anybody still watching this show for its artistic merit? For all three of you out there, this week’s episode actually brings into question the matter of perception. Well, for about five minutes, then it goes back to tits.
Next she grabs his HAND, the harlot. Also, dat ass.
Due to forouhar’s “review” (more like hate-fueled rant) being approximately the length of the American Constitution, my post will be somewhat different in format than usual, and suitably shorter. Ready?
