Tune of the Week: Keep your Hands off Eizouken’s Easy Breezy

Keep your Hands off Eizouken is a series that I’m going to have to check a lot of my bitterness at certain type of anime fan. Because so far it is a lovely little show about the creative process, with fresh animation and quirky characters. The opening is also damn catchy. The tune of the week is the first opening theme of the series: Easy Breezy by chelmico!

Steins;Gate Episodes 14-25: Temporal Do-Over

Some people have criticized the first half of Steins;Gate because much of what happens is set up. However I would argue that such things in series like these are important, vitally so. This time allowed with the characters gives viewers a reason to be attached to them so that, when the plot comes knocking, they are invested in what is happening. That is the case with Steins;Gate as the second half suddenly becomes all about the central plot of the story. Let’s not waste anytime and get into my thoughts on the second half of the series after the cut.

Try again, and then again.

Fate/Grand Order: Absolute Demonic Front – Babylonia First Cour: Bootylicious

I’ve said this before, but the Fate franchisee has basically become the Star Trek of anime. It is a series that has created some of the most moving, deepest and jaw-dropping scenes that have ever graced the screen.

It’s also got some of the dumbest shit ever seen as well.

That’s Fate, and it’s been that way since a little eroge novel called Fate/Stay Night came out in 2004. Throughout the long history of this franchisee, to the highs of Fate/Zero and Ufotable’s adaptions, to the lowest dregs of Fate/Extra Last Encore. That doesn’t change with this years newest TV anime, and probably never well. Join me after the cut as we dive into the first cour of Fate/Grand Order: Absolute Demonic Front – Babylonia.
