Anime Secret Santa Review: Psycho-Pass

Sorry for the late review – it has been an even busier holiday season than usual, with multiple work and family commitments leading up through New Years even. Really tried to get this posted before the end of 2015, but unfortunately I couldn’t manage that. But here it is at last!

For the past few […]

The Anime Secret Santa Project returns for 2015!

It is Monday, October 12 as I write this, which means that we are, theoretically anyway, deep into fall, and will soon be thrust into winter. I say “theoretically” because, at least where I live, it sure as heck doesn’t feel like fall. We’ve been in a seemingly perpetual heat wave for the past few […]

Anime Secret Santa Review: White Album 2

I have a confession to make. (No, not that kind of confession.) When I wrote last week stating that I wasn’t able to finish my Secret Santa review on time, that may have been stretching the truth a little bit. I probably could have used one of my (very infrequent) Mental Powerups (or at the […]

Sorry, but my Anime Secret Santa review is going to be a bit late this year… (Updated)

Update 12/31/2014: My review of White Album 2 is now up! Omatase shimashita.

Every year I look forward to the holidays, not just because of the delicious foods, blinkenlights and the giving (and receiving) of gifts, but also for the Anime Secret Santa Project, a really cool collective anime reviewing project thingie organized every year […]

Anime Secret Santa Review: ef – a tale of memories

In life there are but three certainties: death, taxes and late Otaku no Podcast posts. I tried, really tried, to get this post up in time for the great December 25 Anime Secret Santa reveal, but I just missed it, darn it all. At least it’s not too late!

I have spoken at length about […]

The Reverse Thieves announce the 2013 Anime Secret Santa project!

One of the many things I find annoying about the holidays is that the Gods of Retail, for whatever reason, seem to want to move Christmas earlier and earlier every year. I mean, c’mon, it isn’t even Halloween yet, it’s still beastly hot in many parts of the country, and the kiddies have only just […]

Anime Secret Santa Review: Sound of the Sky

Note: For this review I am trying out a new, much simpler ratings system, inspired by another podcast I watch, Before You Buy. They use a simple system of “Buy it!” (definitely worth buying), “Try it!” (it’s good, not great, but you might want to take a look) and “Don’t Buy” (avoid at all costs). […]

Looking for my 2012 Anime Secret Santa review? Sorry, but you’ll have to wait a bit… (Updated)

Update 1/1/2013: My Anime Secret Santa review of Sound of the Sky (aka Sora no Woto) is up!

You know that old saying about the best laid plans of mice and men? Well unfortunately all of my plans for the next few months went out the window when late last month (right around Thanksgiving) when […]

The Reverse Thieves announce the 2012 Secret Santa Project!

Even though it’s still beastly hot around these parts, the “seasons” (such as they are) continue their inexorable progression, and soon autumn will give way to winter. Which means, of course, that the holiday season (and the madness and mayhem typically associated with that time of year) will soon be upon us. It also means […]

Anime Secret Santa Review: Le Chevalier d’Eon

No, your eyes aren’t deceiving you. Here, at long last, is my Anime Secret Santa review of Le Chevalier d’Eon. I’d like to apologize for the extreme delay in getting this up.

Let me start off by saying that I’m not the kind of guy who goes for historical/period pieces. I don’t actively hate […]
