Rabbit Poets – Three years and then some

by RP December 28, 2011

Rabbit Poets was actually born in October 2008, so technically it’s already 3 years old, but I tend to celebrate the anniversaries close to the last day of the year, because a.) that’s when I became more serious about writing regularly and b.) frankly, it’s just easier to remember that way. Still, my relative absence […]

Fate/Zero’s dysfunctional love triangle

by RP November 16, 2011

Who knew Fate/Zero would turn out to be a melodramatic love triangle? Love the job Satoshi Tsuruoka is doing with Caster – perfectly creepy and insane.

Perhaps no lone person has played a bigger role in this year […]

by Lemmi October 19, 2011
FamSilverWing04

Last Exile: Fam of the Silver Wing is the sequel to 2003’s Last Exile, which won my bronze award for being significantly better than most anime, but still not within spitting distance of some of the titans of the industry. While the first series focused on the journey of two friends as they delivered a […]

Chihaya enters high school with hopes of starting a karuta club. This is definitely considered weird among her classmates and friends. They wonder why a beautiful girl, who is also the younger sister of a popular model, would be interested in such a boring game like that.
