Quick Reviews ~Anime #2

Not going to talk as long this time.  Just wanted to note that I’m getting this out within two weeks of the last post (12 days, to be exact), so yay for that!

[All scores are superficial based on what I, as a viewer, have seen, inserting my personal tastes as criteria for said score.  Don’t get pissy, its just a review on a blog.]

Kyousougiga8/10 Saw this show when it first came out as an ONA back in 2011.  The show doesn’t make sense unless you start from Episode 1, but otherwise, it’s interesting.

Bungou Stray Dogs8/10 I know I already reviewed this more thoroughly, but I just rewatched the series in its entirety.  I love this show, just because of the characters, and how they mesh with the story.  Also, Atsushi x Kyouka is totally a thing, and I dig that.

Full Metal Panic! (1, 1.5, and 2)7.5/10 Great show that’s aged rather well.  Military porn and SoL with a good mix of blood and gore in TSR.  Also, mechs, if you’re into that sort of thing.

Re:Zero9/10 I really need to finish this.  Rem / Ram best girls.

Alice & Zouroku7.5/10 Finished up through Episode 6, and forgot to download the rest.  Basically, old man meets magic girl, and tames her by whapping her every time she fucks up.  Great sense of comedy and seriousness.

Ichigo Marshmallow?/10 Don’t get me wrong, I’ve watched all of this.  But it’s essentially “Little girls doing little girl things while being monitored by the lolicon older sister”.  There’s just not a rating that I can justify giving this – it’s good, but it’s not revolutionary.  何?

Saga of Loli Hitler: 9/10 Real title is Youjo Senki: Saga of Tanja the Evil.  Great, great show, but kinda predictable.  But the predictability plays well in this show, if you know war history.  This show is basically “Guy insults God to His face, then tries to survive WWII with magic”.

Flip Flappers7/10 Reminds me a little of Kyousougiga and Gurren Lagan if the main cast were lesbians.  Flip flappin’ Flip Flappers.

That’s all for this Quick Review.  Next time, Quick Review ~Games #1!  Look forward to it!

Quick Reviews ~Anime #1

In the spirit of not being dead, I decided I’d start writing some reviews for anime that i have recently watched / finished…Well, that was the original plan.

If you’ve noticed the blog, I keep promising to write reviews for series and games that i have finished (or started and regretted).  This is because I am lazy, but it is also due to recent time constraints regarding work and finishing these medias – at least to a point that I can safely review them.

Besides that, I’ve tried multiple times to address this – creating plans for my review process.
But enough of that!!!  Instead, I will work on big reviews when I can, and in their place, use the endcard-style review that I enjoy so much, from one of the best Anime reviewers on YouTube.

Demolition D+ (Or Douchebagchocolat, for you YouTubees).  Without further ado, here is the new “Quick Review” series!

[All scores are superficial based on what I, as a viewer, have seen, inserting my personal tastes as criteria for said score.  Don’t get pissy, its just a review on a blog.]

MonMusu no Iro Nichijou: 6/10 Missed this back in 2015, because it seemed like that borderline hentai stuff.  It basically is, but it feels more fulfilling than To-Love Ru.

Kizumonogatari I-III: 9.5/10 If you know me, I love Monogatari Series, and this was the thing I’ve been waiting for since I started.  Coming soon, a full-faced review for these.  Seriously, go watch them.  Now.

3-Gatsu no Lion: 6/10 Started watching this ’cause I thought it had something to do with Shigatsu.  It doesn’t, but it’s good.  IT kinda dragged on after Episode 8, though, not gonna lie.  Still catching up.

SaeKano S1 and S2: 7.5/10 Megumi best girl.  Need to catch up with Flat, though, I’m falling behind.

Akashi Records: 8/10 Didn’t know what to expect out of this, but watched it anyways.  I was pleasantly surprised.  Lots of comedy.

Hibike! Euphonium S1&2: 8/10 That’s kinda hot.

Scum’s Wish: 7.5/10 Love the show, but like 3-Gatsu, kinda drags on in parts (but both are SoL, so it’s forgivable).  Review coming soon.  Maybe.

Silent Voice: 11/10 Would Cry Again An anime movie I had been following since it and Kimi no Na Wa were announced.  Really liked it, and hope to post a better review in the future.

Masamune-Kun’s Revenge: 6/12 (Looking at you, DDYSubs) Really like this show for the level of comedy and pure revenge this kid is going out of his way for.  Koiwai best floof.

My Hero Academia: 8.5/10 I didn’t not honestly think I’d enjoy this show.  Started watching it because of a gif where Froppy slaps Mineta with her tongue.  The show’s interesting, fun, and has enough violence and dark themes to make me think the show’s gonna get dark (I haven’t read the manga).

Kakegurui: 7/10 Gambler porn about a girl that gets turned on by bets.  I won’t lie, that’s why I’m watching.  Oh, and show literally means Compulsive Gambler, so… yeah.
That will be all for today.  Hope you guys have a great week, free of my rants (just don’t scroll down on the front page).
Stay awesome,

Testing Tabletops (that are no longer supported)

I figure it’s about time to give you guys an explanation on why I haven’t posted anything recently (besides the rants I know ALL my readers come for).  To be honest, I have no excuses – I’ve just been putting it off.  I haven’t done much of anything, honestly – summer’s here, and it’s too hot to breathe without becoming exhausted.

Stolen shamelessly from: http://lregnier.weebly.com/tabletop-rpg-club.html

But now that it’s below 70, I figured I should post something.  Sadly, I don’t have the energy to write a review of a game, and most anime of the last three seasons I’m still catching up on, or haven’t rewatched to write a review.

That leaves Tabletop… or art.  and I’m not really drawing when my sweat binds my arm to my book.

Another Rant

Hey, everyone.  Marcosias here.  It’s been a while.

I know I haven’t been keeping up with any of my commitments recently – reviews, updates, creation stories… I haven’t even posted another chapter of that novel I was working on.

So, to keep this blog somewhat active, I decided to rant a little bit.  “Oh, joy”, I know.

 

Today’s rant is a little bit random, so I apologize in advance if I get off topic.  But there is a lot I want to say, while still trying not to come off as mean, aggressive, or otherwise super negative.

So, hang on, ’cause here we go.
