Digimon Adventure Tri: Episode 2 Reaction- Aw yea, new opening with new footage of the Champion levels kicking major arse.
- Yowch...an increased budget definitely means more possibilities to blow up the town. Kuwagamon is being decidedly scary.
- If there's one thing I don't like about the new art style it's that the faces aren't as expressive. It's certainly more realistic but it can come across as "dull surprise" sometimes, which isn't great.
- "Taichi, you've grown up!" "And you've shrunk." Okay, that was funny. And a little mean.
- That fight scene...that evolution sequence...revamped Brave Heart...it's frickin beautiful, guys...
- Men in black suits? A tad ominous; have we had some behind the scenes investigations going on?
- THE GANG'S BACK TOGETHER! Almost...
- :I Yeah, lose the fedora TK. Seriously.
- This fight is really quite tactical and a far cry from the one-hit kills of the original series (which were both understandable due to the budget and still awesome in their own way). It's also quite brut
Digimon Adventur Tri: Episode 1 ReactionOkay, so I've only done this when I watch Doctor Who usually, but I'm going to be giving a scene-by-scene reaction of each episode of Tri. I will attempt to keep it mostly spoiler free, but this is a scene-by-scene look so there will be certain developments.
Anyway, here we go with episode one.
- I do actually feel bad for the 02 kids. Sure, they didn't get the best story-arcs but none of them deserved to be shafted like that. Even Davis.
- Kari, shame on you, holding grudges like that. Crest of Light my butt.
- I feel like this art style should have been used for Digimon since the very beginning. The animation isn't stellar but it does feel more like "alien creatures from another dimension."
- Ah, Matt and Tai. Frenemies to the end. :3
- ... So they're actually serious with the T.K./Kari thing not being a thing. Oh well. On the plus side, Kari being obviously jealous is a marvellous addition to her character.
- "Seating is based on your grade results, highest grade at the front." Um..
Anime Review: Baccano!This is a story of gangsters in prohibition-era America; a clash of many different families on the street, mixed up with the far more sinister plots of a group of immortals. Or maybe it's the story of the terrible incident on the transcontinental express, the Flying Pussyfoot, and the battle between black suits, white suits, ragged misfits and a bloodstained beast called the Rail Tracer. Or maybe it isn't; it's possible the story takes place later still, in the undercover world of information brokers and broken families, in an attempt to decipher the mysterious disappearance of Dallas Genoard. Maybe it's none of these stories or maybe it's all of them. One thing's for sure though. It's gonna be a hell of a good time.
Baccano is Italian for ruckus, and that's pretty much the most appropriate title you can give this series. With most anime you're able to classify them into certain genres, but occasionally you'll come across one which is so unique in everything it does that it's impossibl
Dadgum this show!What is it with Adventure Time and pulling things completely out of left field?
This isn't a complaint this time; this is actually me praising the show for once. In general season 7 has been pretty good so far (aside from the fact that the show still can't leave dead characters alone); we've had two cracking PB episodes and the show's gone back to what it does best. Character snapshots, not character arcs. As I said in my Outlaw Star review, if you're going for the worldbuilding aspect that's your best bet when doing a show. Lots of small scale stories rather than one massive one.
Which is why, so far, this new Stakes miniseries has been the best thing about the series in a loooooong while.
It's only halfway done so I'll reserve final judgement until the end, but this has been awesome. For a start it's basically Blade for kids, which is awesome. Also it give more insight into Marceline (including clearing up exactly what happened to her), and gave some extra little insigh
Why I like tragedy a.k.a. the FMA quandaryI don't know if I've mentioned this on this site yet, but I prefer the 2003 version of FullMetal Alchemist to Brotherhood.
I realise I am likely in a minority in this, and I do want to clarify; both shows are fantastic and both deserve utmost praise for what they are and what they did for anime. If you haven't watched them, go and watch the original first (mostly because it covers important things that Brotherhood only glosses over), then watch Brotherhood. Between them, I'm sure you'll find something you love.
As for my preference, it comes down to a variety of reasons that I'll probably go into more when I rewatch both series and do an actual comparison on both of them, but for the purposes of this journal I'll focus on the main, personal reason I prefer the original; I like good tragedy more than pretty much any other medium of storytelling. When five of my top ten anime are tragedies, you know you love something.
On the surface, it's a little bizarre. Why do some people love traged
Anime Review: WATAMOTEAnother series I've been watching with my uni club. Here are my thoughts...
Kuroki Tomoko is a super popular high-school girl...on the romance games she plays. In real life she suffers from crippling social awkwardness and struggles to even speak to anyone. But as she begins her first year at high school, she becomes determined to change her image and become the most popular girl in the school, for real this time...
Some series are practically made for a certain audience. Obviously every series has its target, but some series are specifically designed to resonate with a particular group of people. WATAMOTE (or to give its full translated name, No Matter How I Look At It It's You Guys' Fault I'm Not Popular) is definitely one such series, and to be frank, your enjoyment factor is going to depend on whether or not you are a part of that audience.
Needless to say, I most certainly am.
I'll get the easier, technical stuff out the way first. First off this anime looks really nice; while the
Inferno AnnouncementSo this may be a bit out of left field but I feel I should give some prior warning.
I've been working a lot on Inferno and in particular have done a heck of a lot of artwork on it, but recently I've been trying other things andhave been talking to a couple of people. As I've said before I would like to try shifting over to more original stuff, and preferably sooner rather than later.
Now, I am definitely going to finish Inferno, and hopefully carry on with the story. I have a lot I still want to write. But in terms of artwork, I can't keep all this going and do other stuff as well. Of all the stuff I do for Inferno I feel that the least good and necessary are the screenshots, and I occasionally find them annoying and time-consuming. Thus, at somepoint in the near future I will stop doing screenshots.
I will release them with the next two episodes (the end of this arc), but I'll need to think about whether to continue them for the rest of the series. For now, it's unlikely.

Anime Review: Mawaru PenguindrumThree siblings, Kanba, Shoma and Himari, live together, but all is not happy. Himari has a condition and is on the verge of death, and her brothers know. Then, it happens. Himari collapses during an outing to a zoo and later dies in hospital. Kanba and Shoma are distraught, when suddenly a magical penguin hat resurrects their sister, on the one condition that they retrieve an artifact known as the Penguindrum. Time is of the essence if they want to save their sister for good, but while they are looking to change their own cursed fates, other forces are at work with their own agendas. And in the end, is there any point in trying to change your fate at all...?
What is fate? What is destiny? Are they the same thing? Are they interchangeable depending on the person in control, or the person affected? Is it wrong to pursue your own destiny, at the expense of others? Is it wrong to try and change the fate of others, at the expense of yourself? Is your fate affected by your own past sins, or

Personal Quote: If it you don't get it right the first time sulk, or try again.
Order of the HatAs a member of the Hat, we solemnly swear,
To not do harm, or give the children of the world nightmares.
We shall play and have fun so children can hear,
Our laughter and jokes, and to let out a tear.
We bring joy to every child's home.
We shall send back the evil feelings of boredom and sorrow.
These feelings will not settle there and will continue to roam.
In addition, if you are luckily we shall come back for fun Tomorrow.
After the pledge was said, the members of the hat went back to Their homes.
However, without them knowing, watching quite carefully a Creature quite small.
The creature was quietly hiding in the far wall.
When all was gone, he jumped to the middle of the floor and made Some slight groans.
"I'm the Spidrat", said the creature, as he licked his fur.
"Welcome to the tour of the Hat, I shall be your tour guide," said the Spidrat.
Everyone excitedly waited for the tour to concur,
And when the Spidrat was ready, he walked off the mat.
Their first stop was at the Goat in
Wolf's Bane - Act 1It was a quiet piece of blacktop in the middle of a densely wooded area somewhere just within the town limits of Samhein. The sun was trying to break free from the heavy foliage of the area, but having a tough time doing so early this morning. As the sun was rising, small specks of light beamed their way down towards the pavement below, creating a strange, unnatural world as light and darkness blended together in a world of natural and unnatural. Several broken branches laid over the yellow line dividing the road in two, their leaves broken off and smashed flat down as they found a place to rest. A couple sounds of the forest could be heard off in the distance if one would listen carefully: the chirps of a few crickets, the final hoots of an owl before calling it a day, the small traces of a babbling brook that runs its way through the forest. But soon enough, another more mechanical sound began to break up the peaceful serenity of the scene. It was the sound coming from a large red, w
