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.

    psgels, I like your blog so much I want to take it behind the middle school and get it pregnant

  6. c160 says:

    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!

  21. Nasary says:

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

    K-off could edit category though. Maybe I could use his account and that would allow me to edit them. Hell all he would need to do is change is password to something unimportant and let me know what it is. This I could pop in using his account and edit them…though I tried doing this with lightning bolts account and I can’t do it there either.
    Stupid wordpress.

    @reaLjustified, would have done so a while ago if I could. When psgels added me to the site I think he forgot to give me permissions to the category section. So I cannot create or edit categories at all. So it means I can’t edit that list down there.

    @AidanAk47 Great, I was wondering if you could update your currently watching list? It’s pretty hard to find what shows your currently watching without scrolling down the whole page :(

    Psgels used to write them, but stopped because he’s too busy with real life stuff.

    Aidan is the one who writes most of the reviews now.

Gate: Thus the JSDF Fought There! – 04

Not much to talk about this episode as it was mainly set up to the next. The army’s reputation looks to have risen after driving off a dragon and looks to have caught the attention of our new female character. I was about to sigh when I saw the old anime staple of a bath […]

Gakkou Gurashi! – 03

Here it is, a flashback to the beginning of the outbreak. In a market as over saturated with zombie media as ours it’s rather hard to do this kind of story without treading on old ground. The start of the outbreak is the focal point of every beginning for a zombie movie. Rarely is it […]

Gangsta. – 04

I have said it before but these twilight characters rub me the wrong way. This group of superhuman individuals just sticks out like a sore thumb in a grounded setting such as this. They are a Shounen element in a otherwise Seinien show so when they come out and start leaping on rooftops this just […]

Gate: Thus the JSDF Fought There! – 03

This episode introduces what looks to be the main trio of girls for the cast. A elf girl, a mage girl and a Goth lolita girl with a giant axe. The Goth lolita, otherwise know as the Apostle of a death god, Rory is so far the most interesting of the bunch. Though mainly because […]

Gangsta. – 03

I really don’t understand Mangalobe’s thinking on this changes, for you see this episode was an adaption of the second chapter in the manga. I don’t see the reason why they felt that they needed to mix around the order of these episodes but I suppose it’s no harm done. To be honest I found […]

Gakkou Gurashi! – 02

  So despite saying I would cover Chaos Dragon in my summer preview, I have decided to cover this instead. The reasons for this is simple, the obvious one being that Chaos Dragon is a poorly written, badly animated and jarring mess of an anime. But the main reason is that after the second episode […]

Gate: Thus the JSDF Fought There! – 02

This episode was certainly stronger than the first as Itami’s otaku tendencies were cut down and the focus was more on the conflict. The fight itself was brilliantly portrayed as we saw it mainly from the side of the other world. In the beginning when they were marching towards the army they were assured of […]

Gangsta. – 02

As this show continues the Black Lagoon vibes only get stronger but this episode did present an issue. Namely the supernaturally strong dog tag soldiers which can jump ten feet into the air and pull out road signs. In a series that at least started fairly set in reality these elements are somewhat odd though […]

Knights of Sidonia S2: Battle for Planet Nine review – 73/100

The second season of Sidonia makes a number of mistakes that a lot of second seasons do. That namely being that the anime slows down and introduces characters and conflicts that are often resolved in a undetermined to exist, third season. A new antagonist is introduced, whom does very little in the season and only […]

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 […]

Pokemon: The Origin Review – 75/100

Normally I try to avoid spoilers with these reviews, but screw it, it’s Pokemon. Pokemon The Origin is a bomb of nostalgia. If you haven’t played Pokemon Red, Blue or Green, then you will not enjoy this one slight bit. This really is made as pure undilluted fanservice for the fans of the first games. […]

Tamayura – More Aggressive Review – 75/100

I’m not going to dedicate a post for my impression for the final three episodes of this series. It was just too boring to write much about. I guess that that gives a pretty accurate indication of what I think about this series. Right at the start of Tamayura’s second season, I asked one question: […]
