Spring's Last Fling

Well, not really. But May here is so darn warm, you'd think spring lasted 7-8 weeks in Philadelphia.

So we're back with 6 new reviews.

Allen starts us off with two new reviews: Osamu Tezuka's Phoenix (based on the classic manga of the same name), and a more recent series, the first season of Kimi ni Todoke (From Me to You).

Carlos leaps ahead a season to give us a review of the recent Waiting in the Summer (aka Ano Natsu de Matteru, as crunchyroll users like me remember it as). Only clicking the link will tell you if he felt the series was worth the watch.

Aiden is then up with the mediocre Guilty Crown, and then our second review of 2012 - Nisemonogatari.

Our last show is a late addition to the schedule, though the show itself has been around for quite a while. Stig wraps up the review update with the humorous 2004 anime comedy Ninja Nonsense.

Next Monday we reveal onto you a Secret Update. See you then.

Update: In light of its recent license, Usagi Drop has been renamed into Bunny Drop.

Happy Tax Day

Or not. Speaking of taxing...

Starting us off is Nick, who is none too pleased by the awful first season of Recorder and Randsell. (Don't expect a review of season 2.) Fortunately, he has better luck with Durarara!!.

Aiden seems to be feeling the blues too, as he looks at the laughable Another.

Allen feels similar woes with True Tears, another entry on the long list of visual novel anime that are painful to sit through. He also gives a second take on The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya season 2, but is not as pleased as even Carlos was.

On the upside, I review the surprisingly good Persona 4: The Animation, a giant shock to me after the absolutely awful Persona Trinity Soul.

See you guys again on April 30th.

All for one, and all for Allen!

This update is nothing but reviews from recent member Allen Moody!

First up is a review of the Irresponsible Captain Tylor OAV series, which he almost gives five, but says it misses the mark. He does, however, give the next series, Noein, a solid five stars.

Unfortunately, he then struggles with his new couple of anime. He gives a second opinion on This Ugly Yet Beautiful World, barely giving it an extra star above the first opinion by Nick. Seven of Seven, about a girl who is split into 7 diverging personalities, gets the same score.

Allen then goes up again with two more 4-star reviews: the TV series version of Princess Resurrection, and the sequel to Ikki Tousen, Ikki Tousen: Dragon Destiny.

Due to our staff being busy, the next two updates will be bi-weekly. See you again on April 16th!
