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!

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

    Ha, looks like The clan is the type of serious, dark themed thriller I’d be into.

    Have you guys watched the Clan? I just finished it and it had a very good ending, tied up everything neatly. Latin cinema had such a blast year in 2015.

    Vincent Cassel plays a womanizer type, so I’m not surprised here. I think the tale of an ogre got me the most.I took my friend to watched it and I remembered she enjoyed it, more so than myself.

    The locations (supposedly in Italy) and the sets were great tho. The lack of CG was very refreshing- it gave the film an oldschool charm, and it really fit the fairytale theme.

    @Kaiser: he was distracting a little bit. All the while I was like “I wonder how they got him for the role?”.

    I wonder if Vincent Cassel has ever actually played a likeable person…

    I expected to be grossed out by the heart eating scene yet it had no effect.

Flying witch – 04

Flying witch again delivers strong material this week and I actually think this is their best episode so far. Mostly because the 2 parts are well connected this week, and our new character Inuka is so natural and fit in like a glove, in addition they have an absurd and whimsical story to boost. I […]

Mayoiga – 05

We now back to the status quo on Mayoiga this week, as the group who left the village decided to come back, and the cliffhanger happened last week was never explained probably. I will say this upfront: this is not a good episode. We don’t learn much after it ends. We have even longer conversations […]

Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress – 03

                There are no brakes on the Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress train even when it goes for a pit stop to pick up some water and say a prayer for the dead. While my fellow writers firmly believe that Koutetsujou no Kabaneri will disintegrate into a trainwreck […]

Bungou Stray Dogs – 04

Bungou Stray Dogs sure never get tired to showcase more new characters every week, and judging from the OP I’m certain that there are more to come. This week there are 3 more new faces and each of them is over the top in their own ways, but that turns out to be for good […]

Joker Game – 04

I am starting to get a little worried about Joker Game. After a very strong start it’s gone down in quality once it revealed it’s episodic format. This episode marks the lowest point of the series so far though I still don’t think of it as bad. Rather than focus on a member of the […]

Re:Zero -Starting Life in Another World – 04

Despite nearly dying our protagonist wakes up out of the loop and now in the mansion of a strange clown like fellow with twin maids. The mansion looks to be Emilia’s home and we not look to be in a new time loop as evidenced by the last scene where it appears that Subaru was […]

Kiznaiver – 03

So this episode was an introduction to our new seventh Kiznaiver who looks to be a roguish shut in with a pendent for self harm. Adding a masochist to a group that shares pain is certainly a dilemma but I wonder just how they plan to make use of him in the plot. Considering that […]

Flying witch – 03

Flying witch has another solid episode this week. Flying week’s formula seems to be half of Makoto the witch getting to know an everyday country life, and other half of Makoto’s witchcrafts and meeting people from that magic world. All of these stories take place mostly in a single location as well, this time are […]

Mayoiga – 04

It’s until this week that I just noticed the rather strange part of the OP of Mayoiga, the sequence was shown in the point of view of Masaki. It starts with her, then introducing the cast and finally ends with her standing alone in the lost village. But when I think about that, only in […]

Schwarzesmarken – 65/100

Schwarzesmarken is a strange title in that it has a setting with fantastic potential yet the story is dampened by a rushed pacing and Missing characterisation. Despite this there are signs of a greater story under the hood and at times that story can shine despite haphazard adaption. The Stasi make for a great villain […]

Boku dake ga Inai Machi – 85/100

In the large reservoir of anime it is surprising just how few titles focus on the concept of time travel. There are of course titles which feature time travel but few that make it the core focus. So here we have Boku Machi or ERASED, a tale about a mangaka time traveling to his childhood […]

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 […]
