This love triangle is like the Power Glove. It looks cool, but it's SO BAD! ;)

  First of all, my apologies for a long, looooong layoff of six months since I last posted here. That was in large part due to inspiration simply not striking for me over that span of time. But now, thanks to an anime awesomely trainwrecking, intensely invigorated inspiration has struck anew! And since this triangular […]

It’s the Final Countdown! Please follow along with me as I go through my final countdown for this “Anime Year in Review” series. So far I’ve focused on characters, but now I will focus on the shows themselves. I present to you what, in my view, where the Ten Best Anime Shows of 2011!

As promised, here’s the next part in my three-part 2011 Anime Year in Review series. From the Top 10 Male Anime Characters of 2011 we now move on to the fairer sex, as we count down the Top 10 Female Anime Characters of 2011. As for why I’m promoting this with a Madoka Magica group […]

2011

Over the next few days, I intend to put up a series of blog entries here on Rabbit Poets, all with the goal of looking back on what proved to be a coolly captivating comeback year for anime. These blog entires will focus on the characters, and anime shows, that I felt contributed the most […]

Gen Urobuchi

2011 has been a really riveting renaissance year for anime, as we’ve seen anime Blu-Ray sales stunningly soar, and strong new offerings in the magical girl and sci-fi genres, both of which had badly needed some scintillating sparks to move them forward again. Perhaps no lone person has played a bigger role in this year […]

Why Plot Twists Sometimes Meet With Derisive Laughter

  In recently watching Blood-C Episode 11, and reading some viewer reaction to it, a certain fact became abundantly clear to me. That fact is that “Anime creators and writers have not adapted their storytelling approach for the TV Tropes era”. This is something I’ve suspected for awhile now, but Blood-C’s latest episode turned my […]

steinsgate-kiss

This isn’t a Steins;Gate Episode 22 review so much as its a broader commentary on a certain character type that Steins;Gate has done an exemplary job of portraying. That character type is the tsundere, displayed beautifully by one Kurisu Makise. In this blog, I will discuss how Kurisu has almost single-handedly rescued this character type […]

ano-hana-01

Anohana has ended up as a superbly sparkling success, as it is both commercially soaring, and critically acclaimed. And yet, as good as Anohana was, I have to admit a slight degree of surprise over this. Which is why I spent some time puzzling over just what made Anohana become received so well by domestic […]

Every so often, one of my fellow anime-watching friends will recommend an older (i.e. not currently airing) anime to me. Sometimes this results in unearthing a real gem that’s worth taking a deeper look at, and recommending to other anime fans in turn.

...and this picture helps explain why. ;)

Oh, how the mighty have fallen! Read through the first post on that anime thread carefully. Take particular note of Nichijou’s DVD sales figures. And let it sink in that these sub-1000 sales is for a Kyoto Animation anime. Kyoto Animation pulling down fewer than a thousand DVD sales from Nichijou is truly a clamorously […]
