The wilderness of reality

I’ve been living the nightmare for the last week: my main computer broken, no internet access on the other.

Prepare for vague promises of catch-up!

Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora (Gazing up at the half moon) – episode 1

February 19, 2006 on 6:12 pm | In HanTsuki | 3 Comments

“Akiko-san, the girl and Akutagawa Ryuunosuke”

Blandly designed and disturbingly blurry, HanTsuki is still a quite compelling title about two seventeen year olds who meet while they’re both hospitalised.

Bleach – episode 68-69

February 18, 2006 on 7:22 pm | In Bleach | Comments Off on Bleach – episode 68-69

“It’s okay to live.”
Plainly the best Bleach in a long while, as it wraps up the intensely lame “game” plot, justifies it, and then introduces a genuinely interesting looking story.

Spoilers: the conclusion of the Ririn arc and the set-up for the Bound arc

Yakitate!! Japan – episode 54

February 13, 2006 on 9:33 pm | In Yakitate!! Japan | 1 Comment

“The bread battle in special localities! In the end, he’s a pop idol!”

The unwelcome return of put-upon Kawachi mingles with overwrought music and bad designs to make an okay episode of Yakitate!! Japan.

Angelic Layer

Angelic Layer is CLAMP’s shounen series … for girls. Eventually the viewer will realise that it’s all an excuse to see women in outlandish outfits beat each other up, but it’s a sweet, well executed excuse.

Clear out

I’m presently working on articles that have laid unfinished for months – some as far back as late August. Don’t be surprised to be some quite random stuff, all based on DVD, popping up here and there.

Mushishi – episode 12

February 12, 2006 on 2:27 pm | In Mushishi | 1 Comment

“The One Eyed Fish”

I really don’t know how to introduce an episode of Mushishi without sounding clichéd. It never fails to impress.

Vague spoilers

Bleach – episode 67

February 11, 2006 on 11:43 pm | In Bleach | Comments Off on Bleach – episode 67

The third “game” reveals a mystery that is directed so poorly that the answer is the most obvious thing in the world. The Soul Society material is both a Deus Ex Machina and a red herring.

Mushishi – episode 11

February 11, 2006 on 6:22 pm | In Mushishi | Comments Off on Mushishi – episode 11

“Sleeping Forest”

A slightly ambiguous episode in its dealings with the nature of Ginko himself, but an otherwise excellent story about choice and, again, fault lines.
