It’s been awhile since I’ve looked back at the blog, and since then I’ve talked about a lot of stuff, and made it through some of my lists. So I think it is time to come back, do some housekeeping and lay out what the plans are for the spring and the summer! Let’s get into it after the cut!
One of the best surprises of this more subdued, but still excellent anime season is that How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord’s second season has been nothing but superb. Great animation, great ecchi and great music. The song today is no exception. The Tune of the Week is the second opening to the series: EVERYBODY! EVERYBODY! by DJ KOO & MOTSU!
I’ve talked about this series before, and I’ll probably do it again. There are probably only a handful of anime that you watch in your life that become regular re-watches, that are in your view, absolutely rock solid in what they are. We all have them, or will get them in time. The show we are discussing today is one of mine. After the cut let’s take a re-dive into Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works
It’s Monday, we are all in lockdown still, and it’s time for this! Welcome to Don’t @ Me, the place where, like a damn attractive salarywoman. I get throw into a new world and decide to slug it out as an alchemist, while giving my views and ideas on the anime industry. This week I’m getting on my soapbox and dishing out a few completely unwanted tips on how to survive as an anime fan in the age of social media. Do you care? Do you even want this? Eh, let’s get into it after the cut.
A few months ago I sat down and watched the final installment of the Heaven’s Feel movie trilogy. Yesterday I sat down and watched it again. I knew that this movie would require a second viewing, and I wanted to see if my thoughts had changed. If you recall, I considered the final film to be ‘good, not great,’ with tons of great moments, but also suffering a bit from plotting decisions done in the first two movies. Has that changed now that I’ve watched again with lowered expectations?
Yes, and no. Much of my feelings are the same, which is why I’m doing this as a ‘quick thoughts’ instead of a full on post, there isn’t much to say that I haven’t already said. However those feelings have improved considerably. So let’s check them out after the cut.
I’ve had this show in my back pocket for a while now, but didn’t have time to talk about it with all the end of season stuff! This is an anime I’ve been dying to watch for awhile and for reasons you can probably guess. After the cut let’s take a dive into the ecchi series: Hybrid x Heart Magias Academy Ataraxia!
I had heard about this series for a while, yet had no inclination to watch it. However I was bored one day and after browsing through Netflix, I decided to load it up and see what was going on. I am glad I did, because man did I binge the fuck out of those twelve episodes. After the cut let’s take a dive into the first season of Love, Chunibyo and Other Delusions!
It’s Monday, so it’s time for this! Welcome back to Don’t @ Me! The place where I jump into a spider mech even though the government TOTALLY says there are no humans involved, and give you my thoughts and views on everything about anime and manga. I took a week off, let’s get back into this after the cut!
Mobile Suit Gundam SEED is a special series in my heart. I loved it as a kid, loved as I grew up, and when I went back to see if it still held up, I still loved it. While most Gundam fans have a mixed view on the show, it remains, in my mind, a great piece of anime. A story of people thrust into a war, who either sink or swim, a story about the arrogance of humanity, the rush to perfect. And most of all, a show where awesome looking robots shoot laser beams at each other. The HD remaster brought polish to a series that, while suffering from some issues, is still able to hold up today. If you are a mecha fan, absolutely check out this show. And if you want to read about it, links to all of my posts are right here!
