Bakemonogatari Episode 15 (Final)

June 29, 2010

It’s taken over a year, but here we are at last! The much-delayed final episode of Bakemonogatari has officially been released. It’s been a particularly long wait considering the cliffhanger of sorts we were left with last time too, with Hanekawa (or rather, the oddity in control of her) professing her love for Araragi.

Shakugan no Shana S Episode 3

June 28, 2010

After a couple of incredibly weak couple of episodes which made up the first half of this Shakugan no Shana S tag, the second half of these releases can surely only get better? Then again, maybe that’s just the melon bread I had at the weekend talking…Anyhow, the start of this episode sees Shana at her Flame Haze finest, meeting and destroying a Torch in her inimitable cold and calculating manner so that she can take on said Torch’s existence as part of an on-going investigation she is undertaking.

Denver Cherry Blossom Festival 2010

June 27, 2010

I managed to make it out to the Denver Cherry Blossom Festival this year, and boy was it a day worth celebrating! It is always fun to get in with some Japanese folks and those who like Japanese culture. I met tons of new people, and also met up with some old Con buddies of mine. It was a great day, and I am so glad I took time to visit good old Sakura Square once again. Read the rest of this entry ?

June 27, 2010

The previous episode of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood brought us to the brink of victory for a newly regenerated Edward Elric (now with all original limbs intact) against the original Homunculus in his God-like form; but of course, this series being what it is, the battle isn’t quite over yet.

Angel Beats! Episode 13 (Final)

June 26, 2010

No more shadow monsters and no more Angel means no more threat as Angel Beats hits its final episode, leaving us with the simple task of clearing everything up as everybody says their goodbyes and moves on to whatever comes after this limbo of sorts. This episode brought some tears to my eyes.. I will say that much. Read the rest of this entry ?

Giant Killing Episode 13

June 25, 2010

Sometimes it’s one of the joys of football to be able to watch a bunch of over-played, under-performing and egotistical players get their comeuppance… but that’s enough about England’s second round elimination from the World Cup, let’s get back to Giant Killing! Read the rest of this entry ?

K-ON!! Episode 12

June 22, 2010

It’s the summer break as we hit episode twelve of the series, and despite Sawako’s reminder as homeroom teacher that studying and doing some thing productive are requirements of this time, Yui’s mind is clearly elsewhere…. with thoughts of another training camp more specifically. But where to hold it this time? The beach? The mountains? Or, how about at Summer Fest, a yearly rock concert? With Sawako providing the tickets, that’s that settled. Read the rest of this entry ?
