This week's menu and I made a huge mistake

Hopefully we've all recovered from the Thanksgiving storm. We said a lot of things that I know we didn't mean, but I think we can all agree that we're fine now. Fine.

Except that I can't escape from the horrible thing that I did. We can make excuses all we want, but we have to own up to it if we ever want this relationship to stay healthy. That's why this week I'm going to make things right.

This week, the shows I'll be watching are:

  • Durarara
  • Sword Art Online
  • Vindication Mystery Surprise! (That's not the name of an anime, surprisingly enough. I'm trying to be suspenseful)

11/23/12 -- Butlers vs. M@sters

Back in action after an overstuffed Thanksgiving. Luckily I didn't gain too much weight, as my punch-lines alone burn off twenty calories at a time.

Anyway, this week we're looking at iDOLM@STER Xenoglossia, The Idol Master, and Hayate no Gotoku: Can't Take My Eyes Off You. How did they shape up? Check it out after the break.

This week's shows!

I'll surely be bedridden from over consumption of  turkey, potatoes, pumpkin pie, and leftover turkey, but I have a duty to pursue this casual hobby. As such, here's what's on the menu for Saturday.

Idolmaster: Xenoglossia

The Idol Master

Hayate no Gotoku! Can't Take My Eyes Off You

Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving! I, on the other hand, will be eating myself into a coma.

11/17/12 -- Working on Aria While Seagulls Cry

Man it's early to be up on a Saturday. Did I really ever get up this early to watch cartoons?

This week I'm watching Working!!, Aria the Scarlet Ammo, and Umineko, three shows that couldn't be more different. Will this breakfast leave me smiling and satisfied, or will I have to send this one back to the kitchen? Find out after the break!

Sample Platter: Cherry Tree High Comedy Club

To give a better idea of how I plan to do things, and to introduce some of the concepts I'll be looking at during this weekend's Buffet, I'm going to look at a game I tried out a couple of days ago called Cherry Tree High Comedy Club. It seemed like a good fit for me. I like comedy, I've been in a few clubs, and I can tolerate cherries. Still, I'm very cautious around this genre, but luckily there was a demo available, so I fired up Steam and jumped into the demo to fight for justice and comedy.

Naturally, comedy is subjective, but does this story's punch-line stick it's landing? Find out after the break!

This Can Only End Badly

This is a project that I never thought I’d try to do. Not only is it over a subject that I feel mostly ambivalent towards, but it’s also something that’s guaranteed to frustrate me as much as it will entertain me. Before I watch or review anything here, know that I’m not going in looking for a fight or hoping to be another one of the “angry reviewer” archetypes that seem to populate this weird gooey webworld we live in. People who devote themselves to this role either wind up having a complete mental breakdown or get so full of themselves that they’d drown in a lake trying to make out with their own reflection. I just want to entertain and be entertained. This is a hobby.

Coming Soon

I'm going through a transition phase right now. Please allow me until November 17 to prepare as you speculate as to what I'm planning with this thing.

Nothing to see here. Move along.

I'm obligated to remind you to remain hydrated until that time. ¡Buena suerte!
