Every now and then, I run into a series that, no matter how hard I try, I just can't think up a funny lead-in to use for the front page post. This week's entry is a bit different – nothing I could come up with would come even close to the complete and total wrongness waiting to be found in Seitokai Yakuindomo, the first of the Summer 2010 anime series to be reviewed. Mind the school rules, avoid the red-headed teacher if you value your innocence, and whatever you do, don't call Suzu a child… you've been warned.
Ah, high school. Great place. If you weren't ducking the Jocks, you were trying to avoid being stung by the Queen Bees. If you weren't doing that, you were struggling hard as you could to not be lumped in with the nerds and the geeks. And heaven forbid you were seen as a loaner… Take a trip back to the social trials and tribulations with the review this time around, Akuma to Love Song.
To interrupt your current bout of procrastination I bring this review to you after suffering the verbal lashings of my partner in crime who knows how much I was looking forward to and enjoyed this game. So after putting down Dragon Quest 9, I give to you a review of the game I'm really talking about: Transformers: War for Cybertron.
To be blunt, this is damn near everything a fan of the series could ask for. Never ask a fan of Transformers everything they'd want, because they invariably want more. Since it's a broken fanbase, there'll never be any real consensus on that. The best you can do is give the greatest number the most often requested items on a list, and in this, the game does not disappoint. But why am I rambling here, when you can just click that link and check out the review. I now return you to your regularly scheduled bout of putting off to next week what you can do right this second.
Yeah, ok, so I couldn't think up anything more clever to use for a front page post announcing a Durarara!! review, they can't all be winners. C'mon down to Ikebukuro and meet some of the locals, they'll be glad to have you… if they don't throw a vending machine at you or shave you with a pocket knife or slice you up with a shadow scythe or…
High school, oddly enough, is never a place that I ever really considered heaven material. It was fun, sure, but heaven? Well, I suppose there were all the girls walking around in short skirts and low-cut tops… they were certainly angelic at times… Errr, in any case, if you haven't guessed yet, this time around I'm taking a look at Angel Beats, VisualArt's/Key's newest entry into anime. Grab your helmet and flak jacket, cause it's a real warzone down there…
This time around we head into the shadows for a little stealth action with a look at Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction. No need to bring a flashlight… you're the monster in the dark that all the bad guys are gonna be afraid of.
If I were a decent man, I'd apologize for the song I quoted for this news item. As I'm not anywhere near decent, we can move past that as you writhe on the floor in hatred and agony. Failing that, you could always just click right here to move yourself on to today's review of the anime, Lucky Star.
Damn straight, Rocco, damn straight. And in the same way you do it all, you should ENJOY it all which is the theme and motto of the series Yotsuba&!, subject of my current review.
