I’m not sure how many people still follow what I write because the updates have become so sparse, but from may 31st till June 9th, I’m going on a holiday to America and I’ll be visiting San Francisco and New York, so if any of you happen to live there and want to meet up: just go ahead and drop a comment. :)

    Ahh, awesome! You will love it. :) I’m in LA unfortunately, but those are some great cities to visit.

    • Grace says:

      Editing this to add that you should come down to Los Angeles, which is an AMAZING city so long as you can rent a car. :) The Mexican here food is to die for

  2. K-Off says:

    Visting coast to coast, huh? I highly recommend you visit some jazz and comedy clubs in New York, and visit fisherman’s wharf in San Francisco. Best seafood ever.

  3. Tom says:

    2 of the worst places in America.

    • K-Off says:

      You must be a conservative, eh? You can literally walk all day in SF and NY without seeing a conservative even once.

    • m says:

      I think you meant to write two of the most desirable locations to live in the country, that also happen to be two of the best places to go for food and the arts. I mean if I were going to pick places to go for a vacation I’d also include some places with natural splendor, but even Europeans don’t receive so much holiday time that I should be spending it for them.

    • Jalapeno Bagel says:

      I agree with the others, some of the best eats of the country there. Perhaps not the most American of cities, but they’re definitely representative of the melting pot the US is. Not to mention our general scenic tourist spots suck.

  4. jcb says:

    Yah, New Orleans, Austin, Albuquerque and Las Vegas would be better. Maybe Seattle too. Or Portland. And I would drive and visit all the national parks along the way.

  5. Rayzakk says:

    Couldn’t pay me enough to go to San Fransicko.

  6. Firechick says:

    I don’t live near those areas. Sorry. New York is two states away from where I live. Ugh!

  7. tanuki says:

    I Live in BK. Hit me back on the e-mail if you wanna.

  8. fauntleroy says:

    I live in the SF area if you’d like to meet up.

  9. LovelyAngel says:

    I don’t live in either locale, although San Francisco is my favorite city to visit, and I went there last autumn for vacation. I’m very content to live in Portland (Oregon), though, and rarely have the desire to travel.

    I’m commenting merely to let you know that I still follow your blog, regardless of the frequency of your posts. (^_^)

  10. omo says:

    Somewhat a long time reader of this blog, so I’m interested if you swing by Manhattan (I work there).

  11. Happio says:

    Around manhattan/Brooklyn NYc. Free to meet up (send me an email) :D

  12. Forcystus says:

    I live close to NYC, about 40 minutes. I’ve been following your blog for a few years. I use it as a reference when new seasons start to weed out the bad from the good. You are usually spot on with your reviews so its a big help when I am trying to find something good to watch.

    So when you visit new york let me know, id be interested. Cheers.

  13. Tassia says:

    I’ve been following your blog for 3.5 years and would take a bus to NYC to meet you if I could afford to at the moment.

  14. UmbrellaMan says:

    I do live in the Bay Area, however, I myself will be on vacation. Besides doing the obvious touristy things in San Fran, e.g. Golden Gate Bridge, Union Square, Pier 39, Alcatraz, the Embarcadero, Chinatown, you need to take the time to drive up (if you have a car available to you) to visit Twin Peaks for a breath taking panoramic of San Francisco (and on a clear day Oakland as well): http://sfrecpark.org/destination/twin-peaks/. Well worth the trip. Plus, I recommend the burgers from The Burger Meister, the one in the Castro district is my fave: http://www.burgermeistersf.com. Additionally, if you are into theatre, both NY and SF have great shows. Enjoy your vacation, and remember that SF has very strange weather, and the Bay Area in general has been having some seriously odd weather for this time of year too. So it wouldn’t be unheard of if one day it is foggy and freezing (and I use this term liberally, remember I am from the Bay, so anything colder than 62*F is f*ucking freezing) and the next sunny and 92 out.

  15. Bam says:

    I’m in San Fransisco, you should tag along and check out the music scene and the nightlife with us ;-)

  16. sudachi says:

    Great to hear you’ll be visiting the US! I discovered your blog back in 2010 when I lived in Louisville but here in SF now. Would be fun to meet up if you’re getting some folks together to say hello or chat about anime. Maybe a beer(or Melon Soda ;) in Japantown? Not sure what dates you’re in town but just a heads up there’s a Studio Ghibli festival running through 6/8 at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts: http://www.ybca.org/studio-ghibli

    I came back here after a long while and saw how the blog is active again. I was really excited but then found out it’s not psgels who are writing the posts anymore… I’m happy but really sad at the same time ;w;

    @K-off: it wasn’t the most visually impressive episode anyways, so it’s alright is time.

    @Bam I know you’re going to point it out, so yes, I know the screenshots aren’t very good…But it was very difficult for me to find a decent clip that wasn’t a spoiler in this episode.

    I’m shocked by the news that Jian Ghomeshi has been an evil rapist this entire time. I listened to his show for so long and he always seemed like such a teddy bear. Just shows that you can’t judge a book by its cover.

    Then Tougane looks down in a displeased manner and says: “two brainwave scanners would never work, what we need is to put a rubber ducky under the floormat and then if an intruder gets in they will step on it, alarming the cat. We then proceed to dissect the cat to check its body for any signs of stress hormone secretion which will show if someone was indeed there or not”. He then looks away with content and light up a cigarette.

    Also the dominator is dominately stupid. After all that happened you don’t arm your men with some non-lethal back-up weapon or something? I get that they were trying to take the law out of human hands to avoid abuse, but in that case what is the point of human agency in the police? Have some droids patrol the streets with dominators then.

    @K-off: yeah, “God if there only was a way we could actually see who’s sneaking into the chief inspector of police’s apartment. Any ideas Shion?”
    “How bout two brainwave scanners?”

    @Bam In 1984,they had recorders hidden in the trees. Fucking trees, for crying out loud.

    The biggest absurdity in Psycho Pass is the non-existence of security cameras in an authoritarian future. They have brainwave scanner at every goddamn corner for fuck sake!

Shingeki no Bahamut: Genesis- 04

By now, I have a general idea of where this story is going. Our characters finally face the main villains of the story and starting next episode, I reckon that we’ll get some real story progression because frankly, the past few episodes did almost nothing to get me to care much for the characters, no matter […]

Nanatsu no Taizai Episode 1-4

Sorry for not giving this a first impression but I felt that to do so at this point would be redundant. So Nanatsu no Taizai, or Seven Deadly Sins if you prefer. An anime that certainly does nothing new. Every ounce of which filled with standard shounen battle manga tropes. Yes this anime does nothing […]

Gugure! Kokkuri-San- 04

By now, I have a general idea of how the writers are going to go forward with this show. This show continues to jump the gun without setting up a clear voice for itself while pulling off some genuinely fun comedy, creating this weird combination that is somewhat off-putting yet fairly enticing. However, this episode […]

Grisaia no Kajitsu – 04

That’s it. I give up. I concede. I throw in the towel. I surrender. This is just a travesty, an unsalvageable mess. I have given this more patience than it deserves and it has rewarded me with tedium. The editing is schizophrenic and distracting. The dialogue and events passing by too fast for emotional impact. […]

Your Lie in April – 02 & 03

Your Lie in April has emerged as a bit of a nice surprise in this young season. The fairly popular noitaminA programming block has been pretty hit-and-miss of late, with some very good shows here and there but a much higher rate of complete duds compared to the block’s past. For this reason I approached […]

Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Bladeworks – 03

Well what can I say besides, I told you so. But even though I knew what was coming this is still remarkable. Not only is this episode excellent but it may in fact have topped it’s source material. It is at times like these that it is difficult to be both a Fate fan and […]

Akatsuki no Yona – 03

Hak and Yona flee Soo-Won’s men, but Yona’s mental and physical condition continue to deteriorate. Yona and Hak are both haunted by memories from the past. This was easily the best episode in the series so far. Whereas the first two episodes primarily took place in the present or the future, this episode is mostly spent in […]

Grisaia no Kajitsu – 03

This isn’t looking good. Let me explain, Grisaia has a somewhat nakige visual novel approach. Meaning that it has a comedic relatively plotless first half, followed by a tragic heroine backstory related story arc. Notable examples of this is any Key visual novel anime adaption you can think of. So for the first half we […]

Shingeki no Bahamut: Genesis- 03

Okay, so this episode didn’t focus on Leone and Amira’s adventure. Instead, it focuses on building Kaisar’s character and it does so a bit awkwardly. This episode takes Kaisar and puts him into an overly bombastic situation in order to tell us about Kaisar’s past family problems, but it was so out of tone from […]

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: […]

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 […]
