"Think of the Potential Childreeeeen....."

So yeah, last week I told you Allen had seen something bad, and Conception is its name. I guess it's a rarity in the fact that it's a harem that includes the "...in a baby carriage" part, but honestly, the show struggled with even doing that concept justice. As they are wont to do.

Next week will at least be a bit better for Allen. He's just on that rollercoaster of quality control, isn't he? The wooden kind that mainly goes along a sinus curve designed to make you heave your guts out. But yes, next week will be more fun. Promise.

Dancing With The Stars.

And so, Allen is back and looking at Starlight Promises, a show about a guy who has forgotten something, although in his case, the thing he has forgotten seems to have been replaced with something else. He thinks it's an alright show, as long as you're willing to put up with a few potential irritants.

At least this show was worth the time spent. He's not even close to as confident about next week's entry. See you all then.

Won't You Be My Nightly Neighbor?

I do love me some quiet slice-of-life sometimes, as I'm sure you're well aware. And here comes Ms. Vampire Who Lives in My Neighborhood to scratch that itch... although not entirely without problems, the show is nevertheless a pretty decent watch for those of you looking for something pleasant, especially if you don't mind the mild yuri overtones. Just try your best to deal with the somewhat mild overstepping of boundaries sometimes, and you should be fine.

And yes, while some of the problems concerning the 403 error has been fixed, we still can't post the screenshots. Soon, I hope

Next week? It's all up in the stars. See you then.

The Last Yearly Pitch.

Well, actually, we just crossed the border here in Norway, which makes Allen's review of Gurazeni: Money Pitch either the first review of the year or the last one depending on where you are on this planet. As far as Allen is concerned, this show isn't quite a home run, but it fares well enough, particularly during the second inning. I might not have any idea what I'm talking about since Baseball isn't really a sport we do in Norway.

Next week we'll have another good one for you, so stay tuned.

And I hope you all had a nice year, and will continue to have one in 2019.

Happy Holidays to all of our readers.

Normally, we'd do the Reverse Thieves Secret Santa thing this time of the year, but the participation time frame totally passed us by this year, much to our regret.

So instead, in light of the whole Kickstarter project centered around giving it a dub and a Bluray release, I revisited Aria the Animation with a complete rewrite of my original review. It's something I've been wanting to do for quite a while. I will of course do the same for Aria the Natural, Arietta and Aria the Origination as well, as soon as I have the Bluray sets in my hands and have given them another watch. It's a little gesture to the show that is still my very favorite to this day, even among an increasing amount of amazing, quiet slice-of-lives.

As for what we'll be ringing in the new year with... well, we'll have to wait and see.

See you in 2019.

The Ghost of Mirai Future.

Yes, I know; the department of redundant redunancy.

There is nothing redundant about Allen's pick of the week, though. He watches Mamoru Hosoda's latest movie, Mirai, and finds it well worth his time. Because hey, it's Mamoru Hosoda.

And wouldn't you know it, next Monday is actually Christmas eve. Will we have something up then too? Mmmmmaybe. Perhaps you should just check by just in case.
