4/30/13 -- Not So Nice Cuties

Because I figured titling this post “Dick Riding Kenjiro Hata” wouldn’t be entirely appropriate.

So I’ve been off for a couple of weeks, not because I didn’t want to write something or because I was too depressed about you-know-what, but because I wound up having to take some trips out of town for various reasons. I’m back now, and my absence has made it possible for me to do something super special.

I get to review all the available episodes of the new Hayate the Combat Butler anime. Sometimes life is good to me. So how does the latest offering from our favorite butler-in-debt fare against his previous outings? Find out after the break.

My Very Best Friend

This is something I really never wanted to have to write, and I apologize in advance for subjecting you to it, but writing helps me feel better about a lot of things, and today I just had to do the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my life.

And I've faced some difficult decisions in my life.
Today I had to say goodbye to my best friend. A friend I've had for the past fourteen years. A friend who's waited faithfully at home for me through every school day, every part time job, and those weeks of college that saw me away from home for weeks and months at a time.

Yes, I'm writing about my dog. And I'm doing it under the title of a Madoka Magica episode. I get sentimental.

April 7, 2013 -- Spring Fever

Well now that we've survived Walpurgisnacht's rampage and been spared the wrath of fellow PreCure fans, it's time to get back to familiar territory. For those of you who've only just joined me during my Madoka Month adventures and decided not to read my modest backlog, what I do is watch the first episode of three different anime series and give my impressions.

This week I'll be looking at Saki, which is a show about how friggin intense mahjong is. I'll also be looking at Toradora, which you might be surprised to know I haven't yet seen. Then I'll wrap things up by watching Ef - A Tale of Memories.

Which shows are easy on the pallet? Find out after the break!

This Week's Menu -- Back to Basics!

Wow, it feels like forever since I've had to make one of these. For the past month, I've basically known ahead of time what I'm gonna watch and how to mentally prepare for the process of watching what's on the docket.

This week I'll cut my teeth on:

  • Saki Episode of Side A
  • Toradora
  • Ef - A Tale of Memories

April 1, 2013? -- MAGICAL GIRLS FOREVER!

Yes sirree, Bob! The thrall of Madoka Month is TOO POWERFUL to be confined to just one month's worth of content! I know a thing or two about how to ride an idea well past its welcome, so from now on the rest of the year will be a celebration of the greatness that is Puella Magi Madoka Magica.


We begin this odyssey of despair and horror the only way I know how: Watching the movie. To begin, I'll be watching the copy of the first of three Madoka Magica movies using the legal copy I legally bought from Hong Kong. The inside of the case smells like formaldehyde!

So does the movie live up to the experience set forth by the series? Find out after the break!
