Weekend Update (but not *that* Weekend Update)

Dropping into the backlog for a moment here ...

Jason gives us a look at the original MASTER OF MOSQUITON video series, which is more entertaining than its successor and earns a solidly average rating.

He also takes a look at the submarine sci-fi series SUPER ATRAGON, which also gets an average rating and a recommendation for fans of the genre.

Psychic Magical Review Legend THEM: Linguistic Oblivion Chronicle

Today's incomprehensible news item title is honor of our editor's second opinion of the equally incomprehensible JEWEL BEM HUNTER LIME. This title previously had a positive review from Stig, whom Carlos politely disagrees with.

Carlos also submits a late review of the 2004 harem show FINAL APPROACH, which, true to its name, crashes and burns. He sharpens his claws even further for the disastrous Gerry Anderson mecha show FIRESTORM.

Argh, is THEM down?

If you're reading this, probably not. We do acknowledge that there have been some issues with the SQL server. These things tend to happen with computers. The best thing to do is be patient, as people more skilled at computer diagnosis than the Editor are working to fix the problem. ^_^

Hey, since when did THEM go monthly?

It's not. However, our Editor-in-Chief has been hard at work on his Japanese major at ASU, which tends to put a crimp on anime viewing. (Which does make sense. Really!)

Still, Carlos digs deep into his backlog and brings you a review for the silly, dumb 2002 TV series G-ON RIDERS, which is most definitely *not* recommended for anyone who wants serious, cerebral material.

Stig takes on the super-violent and disturbing 2004 series ELFEN LIED, and gives it a guarded recommendation, calling it worthwhile, but hard to take.

On the complete opposite end of the spectrum, Tim gives us a brief look at children's favorite HAMTARO.

And Diane gives us a review of the weird HITSUJI NO UTA (SONG OF SHEEP) which apparently tries to correlate vampirism with psychotic self-mutilation, with very mixed results to say the least.

A new editorial discusses the necessary evil that is partial reviewing, among other things. (Warning: this entry is rated PG-13 for harsh language. Reader discretion is advised.)
