Little birds can remember
  Contention follows any Kyoto Animation production; adoration and scorn is heaped upon them as a studio as much as their output (or absence thereof). Hyouka is their next work after Nichijou (or the K-On! movie for chronology purists) and initially drew ire for its glacially sedate pace as well...

Socrates Art Online
  Sword Art Online is the five million selling light novel series by Reki Kawahara (who also penned Accel World) which, having been dutifully animated, is the disputed front runner for most popular series this season. One of the final things female protagonist Asuna says in the latest (tenth) episode,...

Yuru Yuri is a post-apocalyptic black comedy
  Yuru Yuri is one of the best post-apocalyptic black comedies of recent memory. It’s startling how such a bleak and unforgiving situation is afforded fleeting levity by a group of school girls who seem content to ignore such a bad situation. “aliens and androids have been spotted circling...

Summer lovin’
  The formula is all too familar: alien lands on earth, befriends local youth and romantic hijinks ensue. The opening episodes of Asobi ni iku yo! do nothing to tweak this formula beyond adding cat-ears and a tail to the buxom interplanetary interloper. The recent Ano Natsu de Materu at least kept things...

Anime torpor
  I should know better really, I do it every year. The summer or autumn anime season rolls around and my interest in keeping up week-on-week ebbs as quickly as the long nights. It doesn’t so much break a habit as press pause on a lifestyle, leaving other hobbies and interests fill the vacuum. “I...

I don’t have much to say about the new anime season
  So I made a quiz from the episodes I’ve seen. Despite not having seen it, there is a Who is Imouto (Kono Naka ni Hitori Imouto ga Iru) question in there but that one pretty much wrote itself.You can only take the quiz if you have JavaScript enabled

Ladies of the infinite space
  It’s probable that Bodacious Space Pirates isn’t what you expect. Based off the imaginatively titled Miniskirt Space Pirates light novel, this is not cute girls drinking tea in space. Well, not all of the time. The series starts divisively enough by explaining the finer points of course...

Chasing ghosts and fighting shadows
  Common stories are when one plus one is two, a great story (as Ken Burns puts it) is when one plus one equals three. At its heart the quote implies that it’s the absurd and the implausible that can change a decent story into a brilliant one. So too is it with Tasogare Otome x Amnesia (Dusk Maiden...

Dead letter office: Does modern anime suck?
  Sometimes blog posts just don’t turn out the way you want them to. Whether due to the content or the implementation, they’ll often end up smashing through the central reservation of the Good Intention motorway, hurtle down the Mediocrity slipway and end up in Dumb Idea ditch, back wheels...

Skirts and swords: hype for the Blood-C movie
  Blood-C received a lot of stick when it aired. Upon announcement of the sequel film Blood-C: The Last Dark, the series was labelled as a nothing more than a twelve episode trailer. It’s not entirely unjustified when taken on a plodding, twelve week schedule; in aggregate though the series’...

Sunday matinée
  Sunday is all about putting your feet up, turning the volume up and queuing some music to get wholly lost in. During the week music always seems to accompany doing something: programming, walking, writing, pretending you can’t hear the other people in the office talking about you. It seems somewhat...

Technology in an accelerated world
  Accel World owes a lot to Serial Experiments Lain. The script may not be penned by Chiaki J. Konaka and has yet to deal with digital deities but a great many of this new series’ ideas can be traced back to it. “there is a fundamental stumbling block to the kind of time-stoppage seen in Accel...
