Upon airing, Hataraku Maou-sama! immediately captured everyone’s interest. It did an excellent job of contrasting a supposedly evil OverLord and his new part time job routine. For the first three episodes, the show was funny and quite endearing in its own way.
Unfortunately, there was only so far it could go whilst ignoring or making light jokes at the big fat elephant in the room.
Why the hell is the Demon Overlord so nice?
I know that with Spring well under the way, I really should be talking about currently airing anime, but I really wanted to have at least one post on what I consider to be Winter 13′s most under appreciated anime.
Warning: Like any respectable fanboyistic post on this blog, this post to is 50% picture spam, 40% incoherent text and 30% non-existent math.
The JoJo finale, which aired a week or two ago, showcased the most excellent demise of Cars.
The defeat was silly, over the top, totally crazy and exactly what I’d expect from JoJo.
I mean, Cars gets flung into space courtesy of a volcanic eruption. How silly, crazy and awesome is that?
But, I would argue that there was more to this death than what might be immediately apparent.
This might seem a bit out of place, but I will take this chance to offer my condolences to the victims of the Boston marathon tragedy. If you live there, I hope you are safe and sound.
Sorry this post is very late. I have been busy battling games, laziness and communists.
I watched Haganai 12 a few weeks back and I am happy to report that it was a lot better than what I was expecting.
Highway was right, this episode was not what I was expecting.
This post is actually a waste of your time. I have no idea why I made it.
I apologize for making this post now. I understand that episode 12 is already out, but I watched 11 pretty recently and felt I had to make a short post (mostly a rant though).
The anime community has had an interesting reaction to Dera.
There are some people who think he is incredibly annoying and single-handedly ruins what might have been a good show and then there are others who think he is the best (or second best) character in Tamako Market.
It us not uncommon to see a large gap in opinion in the blogosphere, but such a large disparity is slightly less common.
In case it wasn’t immediately obvious from the title, I am part of the second group of people. That is to say, I think Dera is the second best character in Tamako Market and one of the best characters this season.
This is a series I have been meaning to start for a while. The gist of it is that I want to cover characters that I feel make some particular season of anime worth sitting through.
Naturally, the first character to get a post is Minami-ke’s juggernaut Hosaka.
