Drastic My Anime Blog

A bunch of ramblings about anime, anime culture and the like with no specific theme to it. Impressions on shows and related concepts abound. I don't do episode summaries, so if I cover a specific episode of a series, expect me to attempt to tie that to something greater than just that episode itself.

HappinessCharge Precure! episode 10 blew my mind.
Drastic My Anime Blog
  By TheBigN I’ve been enjoying the silly earnestness of HappinessCharge PreCure! in general. It’s not a show that will be winning much praise compared to its fellow compatriots anytime soon, from what I’ve seen others say (it’s only my second Precure I’m following, at...

Seven Years Lucky, Seven Years Strong, I Guess.
Drastic My Anime Blog
  By TheBigN This post, with an interesting look at Acchi Kochi, GJ-Bu (which was a guilty pleasure for me as I watched it – felt so dirty with the constant ‘good-natured’ teasing of Kyouya) and Servant x Service also happened to link to a post I wrote some years back about how I’ve...

Anime Secret Santa 2013: Croisée in a Foreign Labyrinth
Drastic My Anime Blog
  By TheBigN “It takes a while to get used to.” - Clarisse, on many things the characters face in this show. The first thing I thought about the show after the first episode was that Yune was a pretty brave person. The main character of Croisée in a Foreign Labyrinth, her story begins in...

Galilei Donna 9
Drastic My Anime Blog
        by dm00   In episode nine of Galilei Donna, Hozuki travels back in time (it turns out goldfish are baited with wormholes) and meets Galileo, who has not only pioneered flight a couple of centuries early, but who has even invented statistical graphics a couple of centuries before Playfair. ...

More manga as a Fantagraphics kickstarter stretch goal
Drastic My Anime Blog
  by dm00 The Fantagraphics Kickstarter to jump-start their spring catalog has added a new stretch goal: if they reach $250,000 (by Thursday 5 December 2013), they’ll “increase our line of literary and experimental manga translation.” (The Kickstarter page is maybe a little NSFW.) They’ve...

Indulging this Anime Blog Carnival: On Cheap Tricks
Drastic My Anime Blog
  By TheBigN To be honest, this is the first time in a while that I’ve been a part of something like this survey-mutual linkage sort of thingy, and it helps that this topic is something I’ve talked about before. To wit: 1. What is one CHEAP TRICK that you can’t stand or have problems with?...

The Anime Music Tournament 2013 Semifinal “Analysis”
Drastic My Anime Blog
  By TheBigN Well we made it. By “making it”, meaning me jumping off the ship to avoid sounding like a old man telling young people to get off my musical lawn. I’ve been displeased to say the least with how the bracket has gone (not taken into consideration my torched bracket in the...

The Anime Music Tournament 2013 Bracket Alpha &Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo Round 2 “Analysis”
Drastic My Anime Blog
  By TheBigN We move into the second round, where some of the competitors have been weeded out, the rounds and time between them are shorter, and we start to get a little tired of some of the songs already presented. The five polls have already been set up, and I’ll try to get to them as fast as...

The Anime Music Tournament 2013 Bracket Pedro – Round 1 – Polls 1-8 “Analysis”

  By TheBigN We get a nice “YEEEEEEEEEEEEEES!” here compared to the bracket namesake’s trademark “NOOOOOOOOOO!” as we come to the last bracket of the first round, with the second set of polls close to finishing, the first set already completed. Sixteen more songs to randomly...

As were nearing the end of the first round, hopefully things will become a little easier to work on. As for now, here’s some more interesting pieces to listen...

Drastic My Anime Blog
  By TheBigN A little late to the party, as the first set of polls is already completed, and the second one is about ready to finish. But I’ll still keep pushing on. BNR1P1 Rainbow – (ARIA the Animation ED) A nice poppy number that’s just different enough with the focus on guitar play...

Drastic My Anime Blog
  By TheBigN Another set of polls, another bit of toeing the line on madness. Let’s begin. BMR1P1 Gun’s & Roses (Baccano! OP) A pretty nice jazz number. I do think the song loses its impact when not associated with the character montage that’s present in the opening animation, which...

Drastic My Anime Blog
  By TheBigN I’d try to make an “Inverse” joke here, but I don’t really feel up to it today. Instead, here is another set of two polls of interesting songs in the tournament, that starts of with an interesting bang, I think. BLR1P1 Guren no Yumiya (Shingeki no Kyoujin OP) Crazy...

  By TheBigN Pretty glad we’re more than halfway through this first round. This gets tiring after a while, but luckily the songs don’t, as these two polls indicate. BKR1P1 Uninstall (Bokurano OP) Chiaki Ishikawa’s voice slides into the this solid pop song with interesting vocalizing...
