Baby's gotta brand new ball.

As in tennis ball. As in Allen's got a new review for you all, for the anime Baby Steps, a story about a guy who approaches the sport of tennis as if he was attending math class? Well... maybe that's not entirely right. Who knows? Allen thinks you should probably watch it anyway.

And that's about it. See you again next week.

After School Karnival of Kawai.

So, we got two new reviews for you all today.

Allen starts us off with a trend I'm not sure what I feel about as he reviews a 2.5D manga anime -- which is to say a manga that has been given some measure of animation, as well as voice acting and music. The show is After School of the Earth, and it's quite alright in that odd way 2.5D manga anime things can be.

Nick's review is for a show whose title is a five course meal by itself: The Kawai Complex Guide to Manors and Hostel Behavior. His opinion can probably be summed up with "It's not Maison Ikkoku, but it'll do" for you Twitterophiles out there. Not that I put that on Twitter, but you know what I mean.

Either way, that's it for now. See you again in a week.

Silver mooooooo...

So, near the end of this summer, Allen reviewed a little gem of a show called Silver Spoon, a show he liked quite a bit. So wouldn't ya know, he went and watched the second season too, because... well, when the show is this good, why the hell not?

Meanwhile, winter marches ever forward and the holidays are steadily approaching yet again. Still, we shall have something for you next week. See you again.

"Ssssseven dayyysssssss."

So yeah, here we are, one week later and with Allen bringing us the review for a show called One Week Friends. Coincidence? I think not. But is the show any good? The answer to that, judging by Allen's review, is a resounding "...I guess?"

Well, that's it for now, I suppose. We'll... like... see you next week and stuff. If we can remember.

The show that gives no lip.

And almost literally at that. But yes, today's review is for mysterious romantic drama Glasslip, a show that goes nowhere and does nothing. It's the one-hand clapping of romance, the tree that falls in the forest with nobody to hear it. I didn't award it one star, but there are several one star shows that has given me more than this. I'm very tempted to put it on my "least favorite anime" list and make it the sole two-star show on there. It's a beacon on how ratings might carry some importance, but isn't everything in the grand sceme of things. It's an empty shell. It's a broken promise. It's a gargantian red herring. The show couldn't have been more annoying about its ending even if it had ended with a clip of Nelson Muntz doing his trademark "ha ha" laugh.

Christ, that was not a good day to start the week with. We shall aspire to do better next week... I hope.

Issues with Disappearing Reviews

Dear readers,

Lately we have had some trouble with parts of reviews disappearing due to coding errors associated with unrecognized characters.

If you click on a review and find it half completed, please, PLEASE contact somebody on the staff, ASAP. That way, we might be able to find a cached copy and fix the problem.

While I've taken care of many of them thus far, it's inevitable that I'll miss a few, so do email me (Nick Browne) if you spot anything.
