Pocket Picks #9 – Beneath a Deep Blue Sky

It's been a while since i've written on of these, but I'm finally revisiting a show that I feel has a criminally low watch rate. As many of you who've read a lot of my stuff know, my first Anime experience, not to mention my love of Anime as a whole, was inspired by the …

Code: Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~: First Impressions

Here's another show this season that i'm not entirely sure how to categorize. The first episode was a bit of a mix of good things and bad things; almost enough to cancel each other out, in my reckoning. I do like the steampunk setting of the show (as I usually do), the art is very …

Princess Principal: Final Thoughts

Intrigue, action, a well-written story and, of course, cute girls. Princess Principal, from the description alone, is a show I was extremely skeptical about watching this summer.

Episode 5 finally gives us …

Princess Principal Episode 4

If you're a fan of steampunk worlds, Princess Principal never fails to deliver. The machinery, vehicles, and everything else are so nicely drawn and designed, I can't help but love them. The action is always crisp and clean, the girls are just adorable as all heck, and the ever-present intrigue keeps me interested as the …

Princess Principal Episode 3

Have I mentioned yet how much I love the OP for this show? Because it's amazing. Such a nice Jazzy feel to it, it works perfectly with the show's gorgeously handled steampunk theme. This latest episode takes place just after the previous one. Beatrice is still antagonistic towards Ange and Dorothy, even though the Princess …
