Pocket Picks #4: Chuuni all the way!

I'm a sucker for a good Romance series. Almost as much as I love a good Slice-of-Life, or even a comedy. So why not a show that presents a lovely blend of all 3, for your viewing pleasure? Love, Chuunibyo, and Other Delusions is a show that brings all three genres together into a wonderfully …

Gamers! Final Thoughts

Every week this summer, Gamers! was one of the shows I most looked forward to. I'm quite sad that it's over, and I am hopeful of a second season being released. But why did I enjoy the show so much? The plot was painfully average and shallow, the characters didn't have a whole lot of …

Gamers! Episodes 8 and 9 Review

Hey, hey, hey! What happened to the funny, light-hearted Gamers! that we've been used to? These last 2 episodes gave us a total, 100 degree turn around from what we've seen previously. In Episode 8, Tasuku has the great idea to get everyone together to play what is basically The Game Of Life (a board …

Tsurezure Children Episodes 8 and 9 Review

Ahh, to be young. Don't we all wish that our youth could be as rosy and sweet as that of these young souls? Tsurezure Children never fails to make me laugh. Unlike many shows this season, Tsurezure Children is always consistently good, and the clever use of a variety of characters means every episode is …
