And so the Week of Updates comes to a close, but since this is a site that just won't stay dead, I figure for my last review this week I'll take a look at Zombie Loan, by Peach-Pit. Life got you down? Feeling like you're being used for worm food? Are the only daisies in your life the ones you're pushing up? Well, no problem friend... Just step on into the Zombie Loan office and apply for your very own Life Extension Contract. Just be aware that the interest is something you might just not live without.
Here's Day 6 of the Week of Updates, and since school is about to start up again all across the country, why don't we pay a visit to the world of School Days? Some guys just don't know how good they've got it. Makoto Ito has four beautiful girls clawing over each other to get at him, and if he isn't careful, a couple of them might just use him as a scratching post. That's not to say he just might not deserve it, though... Take a look at this eroge-come-anime if you'd like to know more!
Erm, for the record, it might help if I'd have remembered to set this one to publish, eheh...
We're coming up on the end of the Week of Updates fast, so let's hit a big one with today's addition: a review of Tengen Toppen Gurren Lagann! Guess what kiddies, you're on the train, and there's just no getting off once Kamina and crew get themselves chugging away. But hey, with a bouncing conductor like Yoko to follow, who'd want to? Just remember folks, keep your hands and feet inside the Ganmen at all times, and believe in the you who believes in... ah forget it, just read the review and see what's in store!
Day four - barely - and we have a review of Devil May Cry, the anime we all knew was coming sooner or later. Dante is back, and so are Lady and Trish in this heavy-metal, guns-blazing, sword-slashing series. I sure hope the devils never watch this series - if they ever knew that all it takes to leave Dante helpless is... Well, read the review, and watch the series, and you'll see what I mean. And by the way... for those that are wondering, yes... Trish is still poured into that leather, lightning split bodice.
And, for my cowriter... Maybe the anime is a bit weak... But not as weak, as, say... falling head over heels for Rainbow Bright? >:o)
It's day three of the Week of Updates, and as long as we're talking royalty, let's take a look at Murder Princess, shall we? What happens when you cross a polite, upstanding, soft spoken young princess with one of the most feared bounty hunters in the world? Well, let's put it this way folks... that crimson on the throne ain't lacquer work. Join Princess Anita Forland, and the bounty hunter Falis in a little grim fairy tale. Oh, and don't upset the chibi robotic maids... they like to make things go boom.
And here we go with Day 2, actually ON day 2 this time; it's a review of the first of two Princess anime series, Kaibutsu Oujo. Have you ever wanted to find out what it's like to be able to die repeatedly in a single day, and just keep getting up for more? Well, Hiro certainly never asked for that particular brand of masochism, but that's just what he's got as he does what he can to protect Hime, and keep from getting his scrawny little ass from being another round of monster-chow. Wonder what Ash would think of Hime...
I've gone with a little change of pace this week, and written up a review of Granado Espada, a new MMORPG coming to the States soon under the name Sword of the New World. It's recently gone into open beta, so I decided to give it a try and see what it was like. Hope you've got some time to burn, folks...
I'm sure everyone has those anime that really piss them off. In fact, here are about three anime that I thought were so bad I had to quit watching after a couple of eps: Saikano, Apocalypse Zero, and Girls Bravo.
This week it's a journey under the sea to visit Seto no Hanayome, a series with a main character that is absolutely guaranteed to wake up swimming with the fishies some day. Mermaids, sea crabs with assault shells, and fathers who don't know when to let go of their daughters... what could possibly go wrong? Read the review to find out, folks... don't forget your cement overshoes. King Triton was never THIS overprotective.
