12/29/12 -- "An Unpopular Position: An Appeal to Rationality"

Or "The Post Where I Lose the Rest of What Few Readers I Have"

This post isn't what I had planned for this week. Originally, I was going to talk about the cool stuff I got for Christmas, as I'd gotten enough anime-related goods that it justified a full review post. They weren't strictly all anime, but they were certainly anime-flavored. As such, due to unforeseen circumstances, you've all been spared my biting and poignant analysis of The Rampage of Haruhi Suzumiya.

It was gonna have references to "Night Court" and everything!
You know? Anime!
What I now intend to talk about is something that I ran into over the course of enjoying one of my Christmas presents: An anime entitled Steins;Gate. I started watching the first Blu-Ray release, consisting of the first twelve episodes, and finished it in a couple of days. I immediately bought part two of the FUNimation release, not knowing the disastrous implication of what I was doing. I thought that if I enjoyed something that was bought for me out of love, I could reciprocate that emotion by purchasing the second half of said gift.

It was a little expensive, but that didn't bother me. I had the money to spend after the holidays, and I thought the translation was well-handled, producing a highly recommendable dub experience backed up by quality dubbing. It was a good dub.

Sunday Brunch -- The Forbidden Dub

I like this picture. It looks like Nagi is carefully considering having a Brunch with Hayate and Maria, who are waiting for her response with bated breath.

This is a tale of woe and futility, one that it pains me to say I failed to accomplish, at least in the way I'd intended. Find out what I destroyed my finals week trying to do after the break.

12/8/12 -- "Oh, Baby, Do You Know What That's Worth?"

Look it up; that joke was hilarious.

This week, we're rejoining Hayate and the gang in his first movie, "Heaven is a Place on Earth". Was it enough to melt away the stresses of finals week, if only for a little while? Find out after the break!

This week we're ordering off the menu instead!

With finals and  such coming up, I need something good for my health to help calm me down. Nothing that everyone's favorite unlucky butler can't help me out with! This week, instead of watching three anime episodes, I'll be watching one anime movie.

This week we check back in on the Hakuou gang in "Hayate the Combat Butler: Heaven is a Place on Earth" for your amusement and my relaxation. Speaking of which, did you guys see the latest Hayate? Omigawd so hype!

There'll be no Buffet on the 15th or the 22nd, but to make up for it, I'll have a nice Sunday brunch prepared for you on the 16th to make up for it. Because I care.

12/1/12 -- I Finally Get to Watch Something Dramatic

Finally! After weeks of slice-of-life shows, we're ramping up to watch some big-boy anime. I can't tell you how excited I am, mostly because something bad always happens when I talk about how excited I am about something.

This week we're getting serious with Durarara!!, Sword Art Online, and a mystery show! Enough of this patter, let's get to the platter!
