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

    But like… Now that the earth isn’t in danger, why do they need to assassinate him again?
    I mean the “doing it for the bond” issue was already dealt with in the previous arc…

    @Aidan:
    I think it wasn’t presented well, but I think what the author meant is that despite earth’s destruction being less of an issue, Koro-sensei is considered such a great threat that the UN still wants him dead. (And honestly you can’t blame them all things considered)
    Also they did mention there’s a 1% chance for earth to be destroyed in March… That’s low but… It’s still there.

    @;(, The thing that bugs me about it is how they solved earths destruction so easily. That’s been hanging over the series for it’s entire run and one little trip into space and they find something which solves the problem instantly. And if that place really did have something like that at hand then why not tell anyone about it! You have the key to earths salvation and you leave it sitting in a space station?

    Assassination Classroom’s latest chapter really disappointed me… Motivations got pretty stupid… Like it makes all the class fight pointless…
    They basically answered a “yes or no” question with a “maybe”.

    @Bam: Aidan watched it and found it decent enough, then I watched it afterwards. Story and characters were nothing particularly remarkable but it was good entertainment for what it was and for a Japanese CG movie is actually look very well done.

Gangsta. – 08

Some focus on Alex this time around as with the drug out of her system she remembered that she had a younger brother. A pretty startling revelation for her as forgot about him the whole time she was under Barry’s control. It was done well on just how much this shocked her but I must […]

Gate: Thus the JSDF Fought There! – 08

Itami continues to be a mystery as he is shown not only to be a ranger but also a member of special forces. Its not really confirmed whether he is a genius in hiding or a slacker who was tossed into high profile positions and got through it with minimum effort. The big part of […]

Gakkou Gurashi! – 07

This episode has been a weaker episode than those so far. The opening has gone through a number of changes now that we have reached over the halfway point. Megumi’s part of the opening has been replaced by a shot of her grave, the colourful transition after showing the title is now a series of […]

Gangsta. – 07

Now the past has been mostly revealed, Worick’s friendship with Nicholas has become a more complex thing. Worick seems to see him as a good friend yet resent him for going kill crazy and murdering his whole family. Though the murder of his father looked to be an order he himself made to Nicholas and […]

Gate: Thus the JSDF Fought There! – 07

I understand that for an anime adaption some character designs need to be simplified in order for an easier time to keep them in proportion in animation. But while the characters who suffer in this episode because of this are indeed minor characters, its really a shame to see them become something unrecognisable. The two […]

Gakkou Gurashi! – 06

Well the story continues on from the flashback, showing Miki first joining the club. Right off the bat the episode pushes to answer the question of Megumi’s existence. It’s a answer that was pretty obvious by this point as the foreshadowing was pretty heavy on this particular detail but this episode makes it crystal clear. […]

Gangsta. – 06

When taking into account the show so far, I find that the quiet character moment stand out far more than the over the top fight scenes with knife wielding psychos on rooftops. The dialogue between characters is much more engaging that two characters jumping around like Bleach Soul Reapers. In particular it great seeing Worick […]

Gate: Thus the JSDF Fought There! – 06

Richard Wagner’s “Ride of the Valkyries” is a fairly iconic piece of music in pop culture. So much so that after Apocalypse Now (1979) whenever there is a helicopter assault in any piece of media, it’s practically obligatory to play Ride of the Valkyries. Even just today when finishing Far Cry 3 and had a […]

Gakkou Gurashi! – 05

As these episodes go on it really is something to wonder about the matter of Yuki being a hindrance or a help. I have said previously that she does push the group in the right direction but it is still a case where her mentality is dangerous. The group need to come up with excuses […]

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: […]
