So yeah, I made it to the quarterfinals of the Aniblog Tourney. Thanks everyone for voting so far.

This time I’m up against Impz and his posse. Be sure to check it out before voting, but chances are that you already know about it.

Anyway, for the THAT groupies who have come to check out this site: welcome to Star Crossed. I’ve been blogging series weekly for about four and a half years now. I also write series reviews and first impression, all of which you can find in the sidebar below.

    I feel the pain of a huge thrashing coming up very soon on me. :

    Groupies? There are groupies for this thing O.o

  3. tk007 says:

    Finally, the day has to come for me to choose between these two sites. In the end, I chose this site because of the divergence from mainstream, better navigation and frequency of update.

    LOL. I guess that makes me and you and others who frequent this blog the psgels groupies.

    Diverse taste,opinionated posts and general niceness got me as a fan of your blog :)
    Kept it short in order to not sound too much like a love letter :D

  7. cx says:

    Pretty much over now.

  8. Somnium says:

    I was sold on psgels blog as soon as I saw all his pretty pictures! Now I’m just hanging around until he blogs Last Exile! Just kidding, all of my loyalties are with Star Crossed!

  9. Nemo says:

    Hard decision as I like both blogs, but I voted for this one as I have been reading it for much longer and usually you have good reliable reviews that are similar to what I think.

  10. Jeis says:

    Psgels, you just come across ridiculious intelligent and I can’t even count the amount of masterpieces I ended watching due to your blog, and find my self always coming back here before watching series or trying to find good series to watch =). Your blog is certainly a cup of tea.

  11. Frost says:

    Hehe, Im confident you will win the whole thing :P and you deserve it… the only anime blog I have ever bookmarked and visit frequently, and as others said, there are a lot of interesting unknown animes I would never have found if it werent for you

    So yeah, Go for it!

  12. AKI says:

    Three years now and I’m still reading your blog. That alone gets you my vote.

  13. Theowne says:

    Voted for psgels, of course. At least five of my favourite series I watched due to reviews on this site. Plus he’s just an A+ dude.

    It’s also the only site I will tolerate captcha-comments for.

  14. shirokiryuu says:

    I’ve been following this blog for a long time, and while That anime blog is a great blog, and you always review more obscure shows and give them a chance.

  15. Ncky says:

    I follow this blog for almost 1 year. Thanks to you I saw very special anime’s I didn’t knew about,for example Simoun. I think your anime choices are very interesting! So please keep it up!

  16. Troyen says:

    Well, before this post it looked like a tough fight (psgels was actually losing with over 100 votes cast), but now…

  17. Nic says:

    Just voted (obviously for this blog) it’s thanks to psgels that I’ve seen so many excellent shows that I probably wouldn’t have even heard of otherwise…my tastes align much better with the shows blogged on star crossed than they do with the other blogs that seem to review only the more popular shows…and I don’t like either moe or mecha.

  18. Leanie says:

    Hope you do well in the tourney. I love your blog; we frequently see eye to eye on a lot of the shows currently coming out in Japan. I mean, you turned me on to Kaiba, my second favorite series after Noein. How could I not love this blog?

  19. Solaris says:

    4 great blog made up to the quarters. I really don’t know which one to vote..! I accept bribes now…

    oops i incidentally pressed Star Crossed button. It must be the routine :P
    And where’s my bribe now?? :/

  20. evolstar says:

    Thanks for the blog psgels. Been following it for over a year now- can’t live without it!

    Keep the excellent work! There went my vote…. to your blog of course… To the finals!!!

    That said adapting manwha isn’t entirely unheard of, afterall kurokami and freezing got adaptations.

    I was very surprised to see noblesse was adapted, I read early chapters of the webtoon before it really got going but just fell out of reading it.

    Did anyone watch the Noblesse OVA? I thought the first half had rushed pacing but it got pretty good after that. Not to mention the animation is just gorgeous, they managed to get it to look like the webtoon.

    @Bam, Well the three games were originally supposed to be one. But it turned out that the first two were bundled together and Alternative was made a separate release.

    Jesus I never expected that doing a myanimelist/letterboxd account thing would be so hard. I’ve seen a scarily higher amount than I thought, its insanely hard to remember everything to add.

Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu – 04

Well it seems like I have to eat my words as Yakumo is quite the ladies man. Which is odd when he clearly doesn’t have any interest in interacting with women. Yakumo has a fruitful love life despite his apathy towards love in general. Yakumo and Sukeroku’s relationship has certainly gotten more easygoing as the […]

Schwarzesmarken – 04

This episode starts with a groan as we meet a new member of the cast, that being Theodor’s sister who on first sight hugs with with the ever so traditional “Onii-chan!” The sister does bring some good developments to the table, namely the machination the Stasi has in store for her, but I really wish […]

Boku dake ga Inai Machi – 04

There certainly is a layer of dread from this episodes beginning as we see happy events unfold. Things are looking up, history is changing, Kayo is finally getting out of an abusive relationship with her mother and finding happiness. But much like Satou is feeling, there is a unease at these developments. Things are going […]

Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu – 03

From the looks of things this series will be focusing primarily on the past of Yakumo as the stylish opening seems to place emphasis on the characters of the flashback. Rakugo is surprisingly abset this week as World War II causes Yakumo to be left behind as his Teacher and Sukeroku go out to entertain […]

Schwarzesmarken – 03

Schwarzesmarken remains a strange specimen of an anime, while still not excelling it is clear it has the potential to. So why is it not a great anime? Well it’s beating the same point as my last post but I do think characterisation is key here. In this episode we had two characters introduced whose […]

Boku dake ga Inai Machi – 03

When it comes to matters of time travel, it’s always a wonder to consider just what rules it follows. Time travel, much like alternate realities is one of the biggest can of worms to open when writing a story. Mainly because it demands the viewer keeps in mind a series of characters,settings and event which […]

Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu – 02

So we enter a flashback on how the master became the man he is as well as how he met Hatsuda. It’s interesting to see the man who always seemed to be in control be a person of much more vulnerable status. As a child we see the aspects that he will ebody in the […]

Schwarzesmarken – 02

Two episodes in and I certainly can feel that Schwarzesmarken is missing something to truly make it work. The setting has no problems and what’s presented is interesting but for some reason this isn’t as engaging as it should be. One could blame the art which had some spotty parts during this episode or the […]

Boku dake ga Inai Machi – 02

While this adaption isn’t quite staying true to the source, it’s still managing to present a compelling tale. In that regard I am glad as I would like to see this tale be given the treatment it deserves. Presentation remains great and I rather like how events in the past are show in a widescreen […]

Gangsta. – 58/100

Gangsta is an anime with a lot of things going for it. A mature cast, gritty themes, a interesting setting and a trio of main characters who can carry the show. However due to a number of factors it never quite reached its potential. The main trio of characters are unconventional and quite interesting with […]

Gakkou Gurashi! – 80/100

Gakkou is one with a good facade as promotional material would have you believe it was some dime a dozen moe slice of life. I was one who wasn’t fooled by the cute cuddly exterior but I was truly surprised with just how good this anime ended up being. Gakkou is one of those rare […]

Little Witch Academia The Enchanted Parade – 81/100

I wonder when it was that a film being childish became a flaw. As a medium grows it takes steps to aim to mature itself and seek a more intellectual level of presenting entertainment. Animation did it as Anime aimed to explore terrontry that cartoons refuse to explore and video games only recently broke away […]

Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Bladeworks Review – 85/100

For a long time now this adaption has been the dreams of many a Fate fan with many believing it would never come to pass, but now that it is here is it everything that we dreamed? Short answer to this is no, long answer is nearly. I feel this show will have many divided […]

Shirobako Review – 80/100

When you see a harem anime and sigh as the breasts of the female lead jiggle with every step and wind that can flip a skirt it’s easy to forget that somewhere in Japan a group of people worked hard to get that jiggle right and draw each frame of animation. The hardships of the […]

Nerawareta Gakuen Review – 84/100

Let me talk a bit about Ryousuke Nakamura. For a long time, this guy was my hero. He started off as an assistant director to Monster, in my opinion a big reason why that series got such a ridiculously solid adaptation, and then in 2008 he came with the groundbreaking Mouryou no Hako. No TV-series […]

Kick Heart

Okay, so I didn’t want to exit 2013 without having seen Masaaki Yuasa’s Kick Heart. It’s only twelve minutes anyway, and I consider him to be one of the best anime directors out there. The story here is pretty silly and mostly serves as a backdrop, so I mostly want to talk about the nature […]

Kyousogiga Review – 90/100

Everyone’s taste is different, and that’s a wonderful thing because that allows us to have so many different forms of media that all aim toward their own niche. My blog is obviously written from the perspective of my own taste, and even when a show doesn’t cater to it (which is nearly always), I love […]

Ore no Nounai Sentakushi ga, Gakuen Lovecome o Zenryoku de Jama Shiteiru Review – 80/100

Noucome! You do not want to know how long I have been waiting for a series like this. More than half a decade, at the very least. Finally a series comes along and puts the incredibly overused harem genre in its place. And it actually does it well. Thank you! So to elaborate: the harem […]
