Lost in America

Haikyuu!! - 13
  Sasuga.Haikyuu!! simply delivers.&nbsp; I'm not the world's biggest volleyball fan, but in today's highly-competitive environment for sports anime where everyone can claim some element that they do best, there's no question in my mind that Haikyuu's is this: it does the finest job of actually...

Yowamushi Pedal - 36
  You say you don't like Onoda-kun?&nbsp; And how long have you been a terrorist?I'm not going to go so far as to say "a sports series is only as good as the main character", because of course it's not so simple.&nbsp; Great sports manga and anime have a lot to offer besides the lead, and some...

Haikyuu!! - 06
  Never, ever underestimate the importance of simple, straightforward fun.It would be hard to overestimate just how infectious Haikyuu is.&nbsp; Six episodes in and it hasn't lost any of the momentum it blew onto the scene with in the full-bore premiere - there have been a few gradients of success,...

Blood tastes like iron
  Even when there’s a guy like Masaaki Yuasa handling the adaptation of one of your favourite stories, there’s always a small worry that something won’t click. In Ping Pong‘s case especially, pairing Yuasa with mangaka Taiyou Matsumoto was almost too perfect, because as any one...

First Impressions - Haiykuu!!
  As sports anime this season go, Haikyuu!! was definitely the appetizer for me.&nbsp; But damn if it isn't making its case to be a main course.OP: "Imagination" by SPYAIR Seven series covered in one day&nbsp; That ties a record for me, I think (maybe even breaks it) but after watching the...

Diamond no Ace - 25
  Let the torture begin.In today's anime reality one-cour series are the norm, but sports manga adaptations are a different animal.&nbsp; They're a throwback in that way - a series like Daiya no A effectively takes two full cours just to exposit the prologue, and is only now getting down to the...

Ask John: A Lesson about Disparate Impact
  When I was in high school, I wrote a paper about Title VII discrimination based on disparate impact. Welcome to America’s Black  History Month, folks. It’s also where I first learned about this “liberal” concept. And it appeals to my sense of fairness. Actually, more like, welcome...

Diamond no Ace - 16
  The trial by fire continues.There's a sort of watershed feel to this episode of Diamond no Ace for me.&nbsp; All of the pieces (barring unforeseen circumstances) for the first major component of the story are in place - the varsity team has been selected, the training camp is over, and now it's...

First Impressions - Witch Craft Works
  Stop me if you've heard this one before.To be honest, I'm pretty much of the opinion that if I never see another "He was a normal high school boy living a normal life until she showed up" anime it'll be too soon for me.&nbsp; It's probably not much of an exaggeration to say it's nearly impossible...

Yowamushi Pedal - 10
  It's all starting to make sense now.It's kind of a depressing day for fans of good anime, as we can say that Kyousogiga has joined the seemingly endless ranks of quality series that tank commercially (final week 1 results Thursday, but we know it sold less than 1647 Blu-rays and 502 DVDs, which underperforms...

Diamond no Ace - 09
  Growing pains, indeed.Why is it that baseball manga seem to come up with the most ridiculous versions of American names?&nbsp; You'd think as baseball fans the mangaka would have a better idea of what names are more common in the U.S. than the average Japanese, but for some reason - Major was...

Diamond no Ace - 07
  Ace of Diamond is issuing weekly reminders that it's not to be overlooked in the race for best sports anime of the season.As great as this show is turning out to be, I have to admit my enjoyment of it would probably be a bit less if I didn't also love baseball.&nbsp; I think there's plenty here...

Daiya no A - 02
  Audience-wise, I think this is where Diamond no Ace starts separating the wheat from the chaff.Considering that the source manga is 38 volumes and counting, an awful lot happened in the first two episodes of Ace of Diamond.&nbsp; This isn't an entirely unusual scenario for sports manga, where...

My collection of short anime reviews

Review: Ginga Kikoutai Majestic Prince (銀河機攻隊 マジェスティックプリンス)
 The main male protagonist and his teammate a.k.a his older brother. The audition for this blog’s Anime of the Year 2013 award stalled for more than a month due to unavoidable commitments, therefore I took the liberty to replace one of the earlier candidates in the audition, Arata Kangatari, with...

Kingdom 2 - 18
  Enter the vice squadAnyone who's stuck with Kingdom from the beginning had to be a bit unnerved by some of the battle sequences this week.&nbsp; They were, in a word, fugly - a clear reminder of some of the shockingly bad CGI that was the scourge of the first half of the first season.&nbsp;...
