Alright, vacation's over. It's time to get back to the grind.

Helping us escape our post-summer reality, we have A Channel; where the girls are cute and the boys are extras but, boy, are those girls cute. Not much else, mind you, but they are cute and funny and if that's good enough for you then give it a look-see.

And if that isn't good enough for you, there's always Hidamari Sketch: Hoshimittsu, a show that get better and better. And did we forget to mention a fourth season has just been greenlighted? It actually made both of our days.

That's it for now. Next time, Diane graces us yet again with another review. Until then....

- Stig Høgset and Aiden Foote.

Ode to the working stiffs.

Hello, everybody. Today I've got a review for a show I never thought I'd watch, much less actually like. The show goes under the name of Wagnaria!! (Some of you might recognize it as "Working!!")

Next time, we have a bit of a group update. One from me and one from our new staff writer Aiden. We'll see you later.

- Stig Høgset, who is totally stoked over the news about the fourth season of Hidamari Sketch.

New Blood

We are proud to announce our newest reviewer to the THEM Anime Reviews family. Everyone give a round of applause to forum member turned reviewer Aiden Foote (Rephaim GG)! If you're not a member of the THEM Anime forum, you'll start seeing his new reviews on the site beginning with the August 29th update. Please look forward to them.

Prepare for trouble. Make it double.

Classics. What can you say about them, other than that they tend to be awesome... some of the time? The two titles I'm going to do a second opinion for you today, however, isn't something you can consider top shelf material. Being entertaining, on the other hand....

First off, I have the original Vampire Hunter D OAV for you in all its ridiculous glory. While I can't in a good conscience give it a good rating, I can make it a recommendation for some of you. It'll depend on how much you like campy, goofy fun.

The same can also be said about Fist of the North Star: the Movie, because... they're the same thing. A plot centered almost solely around rescuing. Oodles of goofy, hard to take seriously violence. What's not to love if you're into that sort of thing?

Next time, I've got something new for you all. Well, "new" in that it's been released on DVD, but it's still a fairly recent title. So stay with us.
