I'd forget my head if it wasn't already stuck to my neck.

So yeah, another delayed update, and not because the review weren't done in time either. (Though, to my defense, I kind of had a wisdom tooth surgically removed last Friday, which basically forced me to keep on a diet of soup and painkillers. Also, by "surgically removed" I mean "split it up into several parts to get it out, including having to remove some of the bone in my jaw getting to the roots, a process that took at least an hour".)

Anyway, what we have is another collaboration between me and Tim Jones. What's more, this review will be marking another milestone for me in my tenure here for THEM anime; my review #200. (Yeah, some of them have been collabs, but...)

The anime we reviewed is a rather nice, under-the-radar kind of a show that goes under the name of Sora no Woto.

And that's it for now. Next week we will be returning with something else, and maybe we'll be better able to keep up our schedule now that Brad most likely will be returning to active duty again. Stay tuned.

"I blame the holidays."

So yeah, we Norwegians kind of celebrated our national day yesterday, which pretty much put me in Sunday-mode (hence forgetting to make the update yesterday like I was supposed to.) That's why this review is a full day late. Sorry about that.

Anyway, what we've got on our menu today is yet another show starring cute girls with animal ears. The show in question is Tayutama ~Kiss on my Deity, and it's... kind of boring, actually. There's a few more things I had to say about it, so head on in and have a read.

Next week is, barring unforseen and potential delays, collaboration week. Me and Tim will cook up something worthwhile for you... hopefully. See you then.

It's time...to DUAL!

Today I finally, finally give you the long-delayed review - Dual! Parallel Trouble Adventure. From the creator of Tenchi Muyo! himself, Dual was created in the wake of Neon Genesis Evangelion and is often considered a clone of it. In this case, though, the clone might be better than the original..

Stay tuned next week for another review from Stig. See you around.

"Insert coin to play..."

Around one and a half year ago, I wrote up the review for a show that was, interestingly, based on an old arcade game, namely Tower of Druaga: the Aegis of Uruk. Which mean I spent nearly three times as long to get a review written for a show that takes place six months later by Tower of Druaga timelines. Yes, it's the review for Tower of Druaga: the Sword of Uruk, and if you want to find out whether I thought my questions and concerns after watching the first "season" were answered, go right ahead and read it.

And that's it for this week. Next week will see our site with yet another new review, so stay tuned.
