Arpeggio of Blue Steel Review

So, while trolling through Netflix, I came across this anime that I had passed up the first time, and was kinda intrigued about. I put it on the back burner, but it kept up popping up as recommended. Finally I did some looking, and the best review I saw for it was, "What Kantai Collection wishes it could be." Huh. Tossing it in, I discovered a very nice sci fi story and some decent Nautical knowhow, which is kinda topical considering what I used to do for a living. Overall, I found it decent, but check out my review, and see if you might not be convinced to give it a go as well.

Arpeggio of Blue Steel (TV, 2013)

Overview

It is the year 2005, and the treacherous Decepticons have conquered...no wait, wrong story. Let me back up a sec. It's actually the year 2039, and global warming agitprop has caused the sea levels to rise exponentially causing a massive loss of Earth's land mass. During this time fleets of sentient warships, dubbed 'The Fog' with technology light years ahead of our appear on the high sees with this directive: There will be no transit, commerce, communication, or any other interaction between land masses via the oceans or the sky. Humanity is now cut off from each other. Humanity fought bravely, defiantly, but otherwise, futilely as no weapon we had, no strategy we could come up with, and no protection we could put up could stop them. And after the final stand of the world Navies, humanity retreated to its land locked positions and futilely plotting how it could retake its world. Its only hope laying in a deserter from The Fog, Iona, and her captain, Gunzō Chihaya, with their crew of Blue Steel, the only ship currently capable of fighting back against these invaders. Though in this transformed world, all is not as it seems; far more than meets the eye when it's found 'The Fog' is evolving as well; though not in a direction much of anyone expected.

Amagi Brilliant Park Anime Review Up

And so, rather than from several seasons ago, I review the anime from last season, Amagi Brilliant Park. A light hearted romp that was a little more deep than it likely should have been, and a lot funnier than I would have imagined. Check out the review, and see if this bit of fluff is to your tastes. If not, I'm sure Sento will be, heh.

Amagi Brilliant Park (TV, 2014)

Overview

Pop Quiz! Exceedingly hot girl with huge knockers shoves a flintlock she stole from Mami Tomoe into your face and informs you that you will go out with her on a date. What do you do? WHAT! DO! YOU! DO!? If you answered anything other than "Go out with her, of course." then you probably deserve the extra ventilation you're about to receive. In the case of our main character, Seiya Kanie, he chose far wiser, and not only went with her on a date, he found out said date was more of an excuse to get him to the failing amusement park, Amagi Brilliant Park, and to listen to its owner's request that he help her save it...or she and those working there will surely die. And so begins the adventures of Kanie as the new Manager of this park, finding both that he's damn good at that job and that is has several things to teach both him and those within about themselves and about each other; all the while the foreclosure of the park looms its shroud of death over them all.

Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen Review Up

And so for a review that's been bugging me to be written for awhile (and ironically after I finish Dragon Age Inquisition), we have the review for the good yet deeply flawed game Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen.

Yuushibu Review Up

I've got to do more of these. There are so many series that deserve a review...or a roasting, all things depending. In any event, here's a review of the dark lord at work anime, Yūsha ni Narenakatta Ore wa Shibushibu Shūshoku o Ketsui Shimashita, or I Couldn’t Become a Hero, So I Reluctantly Decided to Get a Job. Helluva mouthful there. In what has seemingly become its own genre, we follow the trials and tribulations of the workers of the magical electronics store, Leon, in a post war economy, where everyone is more than they seem, and all are trying to do the best they can in a situation that could be far worse for them. Check out more in the review!

Yuushibu Review (TV, 2014)

Overview

The Evil Overlord has been defeated, and peace is restored; huzzah! Cupcakes for everyone! Except your whole damn economy is geared towards that fight, and the Mao of Maoyuu was not the big bad to save your ass. Heroes and soldiers are now out of work, and the ones training to be such are, if they're lucky, relegated to flipping burgers. No one will buy the super expensive equipment anymore; what would be the point? So shitloads of epic gear winds up in landfills. Basically, life stinks, but it could have been worse for former aspiring Hero, Raul Chaser, who winds up at a Magic Shop called Leon. At least he has a job, and while it's not what he envisioned, the work is good, the people are good, and the pay is decent. Again not optimal, but manageable...at least until this strange person comes by asking for the manager. A manager who immediately employs this individual and put him in charge of training them. Problem is who this person winds up being and why the manager did what she did, which will cause him a universe full of problems and turn this man's worldview inside and out.

Ixion Saga DT Review Up

Looking for anime that doesn't feed the disease is becoming akin to finding a politician that is not corrupt. To satisfy this desire, I find myself looking at anime I didn't get to the first time around, and here we wind up with Ixion Saga DT; one that will go down in infamy as setting a new bar for the wrongest of the wrong parodies out there which is what this review will be about.
