Having read part of the manga, Spice and Wolf Season III has been my favourite show of the new season thus far. Maoyuu Maou Yuusha sees the return of the much-beloved duo of protagonists voiced by Ami Koshimizu and Jun Fukuyama, yet the departure from the world portrayed in manga and novels to screen has been rather surprising thus far. Upon first glance one might assume that the anime is made by one of the major animation companies, but it’s produced by ARMS, creator of such highly acclaimed anime such as Queen’s Blade or Night Shift Nurses, as well as what I dare say may be their first serious anime adaptation….by their standards anyway.

Reviewing and discussing on the more interesting horror manga I’ve read recently, “Zekkyou Gakkyuu”, or “Screaming Lessons” by Ishikawa Kei. More within.
おおかみこどもの雨と雪 (Ōkami Kodomo no Ame to Yuki or The Wolf Children Ame and Yuki) is a movie by Hosoda Mamoru (Girl who Leapt Through Time, Summer Wars), released July 21st in Japan this year. Owing to the fact that I actually went to a theatre and watched this (on a Monday afternoon in a non-central theatre, resulting in a showing with a grand total of 6 people in the audience), I am unable to provide screenshots.
Quite honestly, I didn’t know what to expect of Binbougami Ga! Having seen the first episode, I can now say that Binbougami will probably be that one “weird but funny” show of the season. Yes, you could argue that Jinrui is also weird and funny, but that isn’t the point of that show. Binbougami on the other hand, is pure comedy.
Humanity has declined is a surrealist-slash-macabre social commentary that utilizes the advantages of satire and black humor to get its cynicism across to the audience in a backdrop of a post-apocalyptic pastel-colored dreamland.
I just marathoned Aquarion EVOL, so you know what that means… tl;dr time! In this week’s tl;dr post, we’ll take a look at the concept of destiny/fate, as well as the central theme of Aquarion; love that transcends time and space. Moreso than with my previous tl;drs, this post will contain my own thoughts and opinions as opposed to solid facts, so take what you are about to read with a grain of salt.
