Subscribing to the Cosine Curve.

Yes, our three reviews of the week is a bit of a mixed bunch, following said curve to the letter... almost.

Carlos starts us fairly high with Kokoro Connect, a show that puts the ol' switcheroo to good use. He approves.

Unfortunately, Allen Moody seems to be stuck with the downswing as he tries to find a way to sufficiently explain how Nakaimo - My Little Sister is Among Them fails by treating incest as a hook rather than the problem. Or both at the same time, but still...

Thankfully, I'm a bit luckier with my pick: Traveling Daru, a piece that can by right be called "short and sweet".

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

The Night Owl Rises Again

Another close call once again!

First up is Nick with B Gata H Kei: Yamada's First Time, a series that gained a lot of attention (good and bad) in 2010, but has decided to review to tell you that its premise is much better than it sounds.

Aiden then proceeds to review Binbougami ga!, a series he gives a more than passing score.

As for me, I take a look at the K-On! Movie to wrap up the week.

See you guys next Monday!

The Good, The Mediocre, and The Pointless

Sorry for taking so long. Server issues made this update much longer than needed.

First up tonight is Aiden with his review of the nice-looking K, which he gives a recommendation to see.

Nick has the 2011 comedy Is This A Zombie?, and while he gives it the same score as K, he's not quite as kind with his words in his review.

And lastly, I have the utterly pointless Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha: The Movie 1st. If you've seen the original, 2004 Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha, you won't find much new here.

See you next Monday, rain or shine!

The Night Owl Rises

Well, it's Tuesday morning technically, but what the hey. A late update is better than none at all, right?

First up is Dallas, who gives us a review of the much-loved Fighting Spirit, based on the much praised manga of the same name. Unsurprisingly, he agrees with everyone else that it's a great series. Click here to read his review.

Second we have Carlos with his review of one of 2012's most talked about anime - Sword Art Online. See here for his own personal opinion of this popular anime series.

And lastly we have me, completing the Strike Witches collection with a review of last year's Strike Witches movie. I'll admit, I was actually surprised with how it turned out. Read here for why I was.

That's it for this week. We'll return next week with some more new reviews. Ciao!
