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 […]


Episode #0041 – Anime Expo 2013 Recap of Doom! (Part 2 of 2)

At long last, we bring you our coverage of Anime Expo 2013. (Part 2 of 2)

In this week’s episode we conclude our coverage of Anime Expo 2013. And, naturally, we go into some of our favorite anime picks as well.

I still intend to finish processing our video and photos from AX, so those […]


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 […]


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 […]


The Reverse Thieves announce the 2011 Anime Secret Santa project!

The Reverse Thieves have just announced their 2011 Anime Secret Santa project!

If you don’t know what in blazes I’m talking about, go back and read our post about it a couple years ago. But, for the lazy, here’s the Reader’s Digest version: basically, you e-mail your name, blog title and url, and a link […]


Listen to my guest appearance on the Nigorimasen podcast!

It’s been a while since my last guest appearance on another podcast (glances meaningfully at the Cartoon Geeks), so when Tom Langston of the Nigorimasen blog and podcast sent out a call for guest co-hosts, I was more than happy to respond. And that is how I found myself sitting around the virtual Skype roundtable […]


Secret Santa Project Review: Ah! My Goddess (TV)

When Narutaki and Hisui of the Reverse Thieves announced the return of the Anime Secret Santa project, I was elated.  When I participated in last year’s event, I had a great deal of fun, watched a pretty decent series I had never heard of before, and “met” a whole bunch of cool bloggers.  I […]

It’s Secret Santa time once again!

Remember last year’s Secret Santa experiment?  You know, the one that the Reverse Thieves put on?  The one that we participated in?  Well guess what, It’s that time again!

Yup, that’s right, once again the Reverse Thieves are organizing a Secret Santa event. The idea is basically to get together a bunch of Anime Bloggers […]
