“Sup, I’m taking a photo of my own emo face.”

So the conspiracy deepens, at a slow and arduous pace. Not giving away anything substantial, yet providing just enough so it doesn’t feel like a waste of an episode. I guess that means that this is a well written series, which btw is a rarity these days. However, like all animes with a promising premisies, there’s a 67.56% chance it will be ruined by a less than average ending. (Yes I just made that statistic up)

Eden of the East – Episode 2

Closer examination of the craters reveal a Fibonacci spiral.

Episode two, and it hasn’t gone completely off the track, which is better than what I can said for most of the series in this season. It’s also playing out to be one of the most oversubbed shows in history. A quick glance over at fansubwiki reveals some 11 groups doing it. I expect over half of them will perform the mysterious disappearing act by next episode. The show is also just as prevalent in the blogsphere, with a quick glance over at Anime Nano yielding some 80+ entries, and this is only the second episode. I guess this is more a testament of how devoid of creativity the entire anime industry is when we are all willing to sell out to a change in scenery and full frontal nudity. But alas, here I am, selling out to the same rating-grabbing plot devices, and joining the myriad of blogs out there hoping that this won’t turn into a complete waste of time.

Eden of the East – Episode 1

As far as first episodes go, this is right up there with Ga-rei Zero. But, we all know where that ended up, so let’s just pray that this doesn’t descend down the same tracks to an abrupt and spectacular derailment. This also happens to be my first post after a long hiatus. There isn’t really a story behind it, other than the fact that last season was seriously demoralising. But, I’m back, and hopefully with enough persistence to actually finish a series for once.

Examurai Sengoku

Has anyone seen Examurai? It sort of came out of the blue. I think it got announced like a week before it first aired. I remember when I first heard about this show, I couldn’t even find a raw to watch. Probably because no-one knew about it. I really should stop checking out new animes and actually watch the second episode of Viper’s Creed. ==;

Sora wo Kakeru Shoujo: best mecha anime this season

I really shouldn’t have committed to blogging Viper’s Creed so soon. I’ve just recently checked out Sora wo Kakeru Shoujo, and it is clearly the superior mecha anime this season. So much so that it’s not even a mecha anime. It has transcended the limiting boundary known as the mecha genre and transformed into some kind of mecha/magical girl/parody hybrid. What does that all mean? This anime makes you go, “wtf am I watching?” Yet, at the same time, you cant stop watching it.

Viper’s Creed – episode 1

After much deliberation, I’ve decided to blog Viper’s Creed. Everyone seems to be talking about Rideback, so I thought I’d blog about the lesser known mecha anime this season. Also if it makes any difference, it’s not by GONZO, so there’s still a chance it won’t crash and burn like many of GONZO’s animes.

Zero no Tsukaima: Princess no Rondo – Episode 11

Saito take up his new role as Louise’s ass

Has it seriously been over 2 weeks since I last make a post? You what they say, time flies when you’re having fun. Well, they lied, time flies when you’re not having fun as well. It all just becomes a tedious blur, sort of like how this season has been.
