Manga Review- Ichigo 100%

August 31, 2010

Panties in your face…  A simple yet daring sentence that sums up the situation of the start of Ichigo 100%. What more could a guy ask for? Used panties in your face maybe. Something that almost happens in the beginning of the series because the girl didn’t take her panties off and is still wearing them. But hey, our hero is already having a nose bleed and couldn’t be happier. But we can. Read the rest of this entry ?

Sekirei -Pure Engagement- Episode 9

August 31, 2010

Now that Minaka’s new two-week rule is in effect, battles between the lesser known Sekirei and Ashikabi have become a nightly occurrence. What this translates to is new Sekirei being defeated just as quickly as they are introduced, just to advance the overall plot. While that probably comes off as a bit of disappointment in the predictability of the story, I honestly can’t say it’s a bad direction since it finally gives off a sense that there’s a twisted free-for-all battle royal involving 108 Sekirei going on.

Strike Witches S2 Episode 9

August 30, 2010

For a Perrine-centered episode, I wasn’t expecting this one to double up as a full-out beach one as well. I’m not complaining though, because when it’s in high definition it puts season one’s offering to absolute shame. It’s worth noting that it’s not only resolution that’s affected, but also the colors as well.

High School of the Dead Episode 9

August 30, 2010

While the fortuitous arrival of Takagi’s mother has reprieved most of the bunch of feisty high school students from their fate, poor old Takashi and Saeko are left stranded from the rest of their party with little option other than to make their own way back to Takagi’s home.

Giant Killing Episode 22

August 29, 2010

Yesterday afternoon, with 90 minutes already on the clock my local team AFC Bournemouth were 3-1 up at home against Notts County. Come the final whistle, the score was 3-3. If ever there was an advertisement as to why you should never give up and abandon a game for dead, that is surely it, and it’s a lesson that East Tokyo United will undoubtedly have to put into practice here, as we rejoin them 2-0 down against Osaka Gunners at half-time.

Shiki Episode 8

August 28, 2010

Following one of those ever-more frequent and somewhat highbrow conversations between Sunako and Muroi, episode eight of Shiki gets right down to the heart of recent matters, with Natsuno, Akira and Kaori getting down to the serious business of digging up Megumi’s grave in their pursuit for the truth about the deaths occurring throughout the village.

Amagami SS – Episode 9

August 27, 2010

Now that Tachibana has had his wicked way with the back of Haruka’s knee and Kaoru’s belly button, it’s time for another new story arc within Amagami SS, now complete with added narrator and fourth wall breakage as a result. Well, I guess if it’s good enough for Ookami-san… Read the rest of this entry ?
