Through Fire and Time We Carry On.

Allen takes a look at Fireworks, a movie about rewinding time to make up for past mistakes, which is a plot element that sounds awfully familiar to me for some reason. He doesn't mind that much, though, since the movie is actually pretty good.

And hey, even more good news: now that we found ourselves a new webhost, I've been able to put the screenshots back in reviews where I wasn't able to earlier due to an increasingly problematic 403 error that afflicted more and more of our site AND forum. (Which, incidentally, is the reason why our review is one day late; I wasn't being tardy this time.) That problem is gone now, though, and it's so nice not having to worry about problems when uploading reviews, or even finding the one word or marking that triggers it if it happens. Words like "again" or "having". Yes, seriously.

Anyway, next week we should be back on schedule again. See you all then.

The Devil Wears Alpaca.

Sweaters, that is. But only after some urging from her new aide. See, I had the pleasure of giving As Miss Beelzebub Likes It a look, and... well, let's just say I don't think a lot of people expected Hell to look like it does here. Which is not a bad thing, necessarily.

403 problems aside, that was a pretty pleasant way to start the new week. And hey, next week might be even better. See you then.

Cool Story, Bro!

Allen, Allen, Allen. You seriously need a vacation, man. I thought I was torturing myself with Fox Spirit Matchmaker, but then he goes ahead and subjects himself to My Sister, My Writer, a show already so infamous for its many failures that there's not going to be any recouping from this. We've hit the low point here, right? We have to have hitten the low point, because none of us here want to see any potentially deeper segments of this particular rabbit hole.

Next week, it's all going to Hell. But don't worry. It's not going to hurt. Well, not like this, at least. See you all then.

A Break From the Norn.

Or is it? Allen takes on Norn9, a shoujo... romance, Allen thinks?... that contains romances of both healthy and unhealthy varieties here at the resetting of the world as we know it. It's a complicated issue, and Allen's main concern is that there isn't a lot of maturity going around in it. Though it's still a decent enough show, he guesses.

I wish I could have said the same about next week's show in question, but nope. Hooo boy, is that ever a "nope" to end all nopes. See you all then, maybe?

"Think of the Potential Childreeeeen....."

So yeah, last week I told you Allen had seen something bad, and Conception is its name. I guess it's a rarity in the fact that it's a harem that includes the "...in a baby carriage" part, but honestly, the show struggled with even doing that concept justice. As they are wont to do.

Next week will at least be a bit better for Allen. He's just on that rollercoaster of quality control, isn't he? The wooden kind that mainly goes along a sinus curve designed to make you heave your guts out. But yes, next week will be more fun. Promise.

Dancing With The Stars.

And so, Allen is back and looking at Starlight Promises, a show about a guy who has forgotten something, although in his case, the thing he has forgotten seems to have been replaced with something else. He thinks it's an alright show, as long as you're willing to put up with a few potential irritants.

At least this show was worth the time spent. He's not even close to as confident about next week's entry. See you all then.
