Farewell, Coyote Ragtime Show. I’ll be catching up with you when ADV unleashes you onto a suspecting public.

Watch Renaissance!

September 22, 2006 on 12:34 am | In Site News | Comments Off on Watch Renaissance!

Hello there! The movie Renaissance opens in America on September 22nd, and I advise that you see it.

I have written very briefly about it here: Renaissance. More importantly, I’ve put up a trailer which shows to some extent the visual intrigue offered by the film.

This is as good a time as any to tell you folks about my other, recently launched log of things on the internet (a “blog”, if you will … but I hate that word with all of my soul): Batrock: VGMM. That’s Australian for “Batrock: Meaningless Acronym”. It covers things that I like that aren’t anime, mainly movies so far. There have been a couple of obscure video game reviews, too, and a mention of Scissor Sisters.

Please treat me well!

PS. Kimagure Orange Road: I Want to Return to That Day soon. Unrelentingly horrible film!

Coyote Ragtime Show – episodes 8-10

September 19, 2006 on 5:44 pm | In Coyote Ragtime Show | 3 Comments

“Road to the Gigabanks”, “The Jupiter” and “Angelica Barnes”

Coyote Ragtime Show is a heck of a lot of fun. As it is going, it is changing relationship dynamics in interesting ways and, rather than making them seem inconsistent, they suggest that familiarity breeds … understanding.

Nana – episode 21

September 19, 2006 on 5:43 pm | In Nana | 11 Comments

For all of her ditziness, at 20 Hachi has done a hell of a lot more with her life than I have.
If you haven’t piloted a robot by 14, I suppose, you’re not cut out for adventurous living …

“Please give me your life”

And the winner is …

Angel Heart – episode 20

September 15, 2006 on 12:44 am | In Angel Heart | Comments Off on Angel Heart – episode 20

“Prelude to Fate”

It still holds true: everybody wants somebody’s love. Everybody needs somebody’s love.

Angel Heart would be good if I could understand Japanese at a higher level, because then I’d be almost 32 episodes further along.

In further proof that America is shamelessly stealing all of Japan’s ideas, Xiang Ying can be heard in this episode to remark “I’m just trying to be a better person. My name is Xiang Ying.”

Kiba – episodes 22-24

September 15, 2006 on 12:43 am | In Kiba | 1 Comment

“Maze of Memories”, “Bonds” and “The Yellow Shard of Happiness”

These episodes were of high enough quality that I don’t need to make joke titles, except for the third and final:
“The Yellow Shard of Fillerness”

It’s funny that Kiba can bring an unremarkable if satisfactory conclusion to a story arc, then immediately follow it up with stupid comedy to fill in the time. If this is only a 26 episode series, we’ve got only two episodes left to reconcile Noa’s evilness and Hugh’s ambition with Zed’s own power, and we also have to explain Zed’s mother into the deal.
Much as I hate to say it, I’m voting 52 episodes. Admittedly, Kiba wouldn’t have needed them if it hadn’t wasted so much time on getting around to it. “It” being anything worthwhile, really.

Digimon Savers – episode 15

September 13, 2006 on 12:29 am | In Digimon Savers | 3 Comments

“Memories of my mother
Rise, MachGaogamon”

The lesson we’ve learned today is that, if you’re a giant metal grim reaper, you don’t mess with a guy’s memories of his mother’s death. You know what will happen if you do? He’ll emerge from his cocoon and his partner will evolve two levels and punch the heck out of you.

Wait, I just gave the entire episode away. Sorry about that!

Nana – episode 20

September 13, 2006 on 12:17 am | In Nana | 3 Comments

Hachi, why must you make bad decisions? Why must you fill the emptiness in your life with consumerism and celebrity dreams? Because they are within your grasp, and you are a victim of the disease befalling modern society.

Poor girl.
