The Double-D Appreciation Club is now in session.

So yeah, I promised you guys something much better last week, didn't I? Well, here it is; High School DxD New, the sequel to the series that proved to be a surprising lot of fun. Isn't it all the more ironic, then, that I expected the next season to live up to that, and it actually did so?

Next week, Allen will be making the weekly contribution to this site, but more than that, some of the THEMers will also once again partake in a yearly tradition (that we kind of forgot to sign up for these last two years. Our bad.)

See you then.

"I don't want to go to school today...."

So yeah, you know how it goes; you have nothing to write about, because the shows you've signed up for are either already reviewed or you haven't completed them yet. Or so I thought, before one of my reviewing colleagues chimed in with "what about that show you watched a few years ago and absolutely hated? What was it called? Da Capo III? You should review that."

So I did. And wouldn't you know, one of my packages arrived not long after I finished it. The good news in all this is that at least I've got a review for a much better show prepared for you for next week. That's a good tradeoff, right?


No, I guess I didn't think so either. Oh well, the damage is already done, so let me share in this damage with all of you. Stay tuned for next week, when I'll have a review ready for a much better show.

Barack Obama Plus Pokemon Equals...Calligraphy?

And why not? This week's pick involves neither card games nor the President of the United States, but Barakamon, in addition to having a wonderfully pun-prone title, also turned out to be one of the best picks of the year. Read on to find out why I enjoyed this show so much.

We should be back next week with more. Until then.

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.
