So yeah, I participated in an anime podcast for the first time, by initiative of Deadlights, alongside Scamp and Juno. You can find it over here:

Go give it a listen if you’re interested.

    Pretty good. Have you ever thought about doing a Podcast on your own for anime? I think that would be cool, to have a weekly podcast going over reviews for the shows you like and just discussing them.

  2. Nice Boat! says:

    I would love to a podcast, even to get a few words on shows you might not be writing about but are still watching and what you think of them

  3. Airies says:

    maybe only podcast for the weekly kaleidoscope?

  4. psgels says:

    Well, I have been thinking a bit. But what would you say if I did small podcasts about series that I watched in the past? Something like a podcast about random recommendations?

  5. Juno says:

    lol Do you even have TIME for making podcasts? XD
    I mean, at least we’ve got the seasonal one we can do every 2 months or so to preview and sum up anime upcoming/current anime.

    That said, short ones based on old series you get into would be great. You could do them whenever you had time and it’d be slightly different than what we usually get on youtube, with everyone trying to compete with reviews for new shows…

    Ooops this user is out of bandwidth….

    Out of bandwidth :(

  8. Emma-hime says:

    Actually replacing written summaries and previews could take away some of the hassle.

  9. Arno says:

    As starry says you shouldn’t get overwhelmed. Unless you have a strategy for your future.

    I like the idea of a podcast for old school shows. Some of them are real diamonds that deserve rediscovering.

  10. Deadlights says:

    Alright, I’ve fixed the MP3 link. It should be working now

  11. Bill says:

    People actually like the second season of Darker than Black? I don’t get it. It sucked ass imo

  12. I am regular reader, how are you everybody? This post
    posted at this website is in fact nice.

  13. Heya superb blog! Does running a blog like this take a large amount of
    work? I have no knowledge of programming however I was hoping
    to start my own blog soon. Anyway, if you have any ideas or tips for new blog
    owners please share. I know this is off topic nevertheless
    I just wanted to ask. Cheers!

    But at this stage he’s more of a robot. I’m a sociopath and even I have emotions, though they are a bit skewed compared to a “normal” person’s emotions.

    @Raggers: Yeah, would love to see what they’re gonna do with the return of Moriarty. I still think that he is quite in fact dead, but a copycat maybe…?

    Lol sociopath it is

    @Bam: my bad, missed that.
    and that Sherlock quote was the first thing that came to mind when I read Wicked’s post too! There’s very little I would fanboy over, but Sherlock’s one of them.

    @Wicked: Aldnoah.Zero’s MC is more of a sociopath. A psychopath takes pleasure from hurting others.

    Those fanservice episodes in the middle of Gargantia absolutely killed the pacing.

    gargantia picked up toward the end, but really nothing much at all happened for most of the series

    @Wicked: A high-functioning sociopath as Holmes puts it. Don’t get it mixed up :)

    @Wicked:Apart from the reveal around the squids and the robot voice I felt the whole show was a waste of potential.

Mushishi – 07

Now this was such a beautiful episode. We often see Mushi portrayed as parasites. In fact, they are pretty much based on the insects and viruses of their world. There probably are enough real viruses and insects living in the Mushishi world, but they just aren’t the focus of the series. Anyway, what they did […]


Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure – Stardust Crusaders – 06 & 07

This is where this arc gets weird. We’re still in adventure modus, however in these two episodes Jotaro not only meets some of the most bizarre Stand users, it’s also done in the most camp way possible. You can see a clear difference with the first two seasons of Jojo: there it was all about […]


Ping Pong – 05 & 06

Episodes 05 and 06 are dedicated to character-development. It’s here where Ping Pong shows that it also knows its stuff in terms of storytelling; the develoment doesn’t start too early or too late, and these two episodes really added depth to all of the different characters, despite that there were no big matches. I’m currently […]


Mushishi – 03 – 06

I have not forgotten about this show. Not at all. I just finished marathoning these four episodes, and holy cheeseballs on a stick! this is the best anime in years! This was everything I could have hoped for and blows just about everything else out of the water. Talk about raw, powerful storytelling. I now […]


Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure – 03 – 05

Jojo really is not kind to its females. Every time a hint is even dropped to a girl kicking ass here, it comes with this weird plot-twist that undermines any fighting potential of them. In this arc, it’s the rule that says that your stand will kill you if youaren’t strong enough. And so, Joseph’s […]


Ping Pong – 03 & 04

The opening of Ping Pong wasn’t done in time, so the first two episodes showed a sortof montage as a placeholder. Now we know why, with episode 03 and 04. The creators actually got the single best animator currently in the business to oversee it: Shinya Ohira. This guy understands animation like no other. The […]


Ping Pong – 02

Yes, I know that more people here were involved in making this series beyond Masaaki Yuasa. It’s written by the creator of Tekkon Kinkreet, Taiyo Mashimoto. That guy is awesome. And the combination between those two makes this series even better. Because here’s the thing: anime is significantly different from manga or light novels. Beyond […]


Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure – Stardust Crusaders – 02

We can never quite get rid of magic fights at a school, now can we, Jojo. Ah well, I forgive it this time, just due to how hilarious it looks seeing these ridiculously bulky men walk around pretending to be high school students. It’s just so over the top, and yet Jojo sets itself apart […]


Mushishi Season 2 – 02

Oh yes. This is it. This is what storytelling should be about: telling real stories about real people, all with their own problems that need to be overcome. And this show does that time and time again in just one episode. I still can’t believe how authentic this series is. The thing is, when I […]

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: […]


Silver Spoon Review – 86/100

When Noitamina started airing two series per season, it was amazing. It’s a timeslot that on average tends to be aimed at a much older audience than usual, and having two series with the same mentality definitely helped to bring more diversity to anime overall. Unfortunately it’s a schedule that could not be kept up […]


Yondemasuyo, Azazel-San Z Review – 82,5/100

Reviewing a comedy sequel usually is quite simple: in most cases it just drops the bomb and runs out of inspiration, and in rare cases it actually manages to stay hilarious. The tricky thing with these kinds of series is that you need to remain funny, and you need to have the inspiration for that. […]


Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet Review – 81/100

Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet tells the storyline of a planet that is completely submerged, with only giant ships residing on the surface, while one of those ships gets visited by this guy and his AI-mecha from this very technologically advanced civilization. Yes, this show is about world building. What this show managed to do […]


Yahari Ore no Seishun no Love Come wa Machigatteiru Review – 82,5/100

I like surprises, like when a series comes that just turns out to be good against my expectations. Yahari Blahblah from the outside had all the signs to turn into yet another one of those high school comedies: snarky male lead, pointlessly long title that fails at being witty, various other cliched side-characters. And they […]
