And yet another anime season is upon us! and probably not a moment too soon. The only thing remarkable about the winter season was pretty much how unremarkable it was. I don’t think a single show got me particularly excited or worked up but there were a few fun ones. Well, the winter season is [...]
Hurrah! The new anime season is upon us so dive into more shows and increase our backlog even further!! Wait…
Actually, the winter season tends to be one of the weaker ones of the year as it’s following on from the biggest one. Not that this has prevented my watch list from ballooning, mostly due [...]
Man, and I thought 2012 ended badly… 2013 seemed to just want to carry on the way it started and I am very glad to see the back of this year!!
Still, some things didn’t change, like the flux of anime shows which have come and gone. Some are remembered while others are forgotten. But [...]
Hurrah!! New season time, and it’s the big one too! Autumn usually gets the biggest shows and it doesn’t look like this season will be an exception. There are craploads of light novel adaptations and sequels as well as some serious big guns starting up. But before we look forward to the new stuff, it’s [...]
Looks like I need to write up another apology. The kombine moved over to a new server over the weekend so there are still a few kinks, though the site is mostly functional. Just a few missing bits here and there which I’m looking for and getting restored. But I can still post and, with [...]
HOLY CRAP! Microsoft just did a complete 180 on their DRM policy for the XBox One!! And they held out for a whole week before caving! To be honest, this humiliating back pedal is the only thing they could have done. Had they kept on their path, the negative press and general vitriol from the [...]
Kinda weird writing this blog post now. It’s meant to be a spring anime roundup but it’s just over 0 degrees outside. It’s freaking winter still!! Anyway, we have a new anime season up so, as usual, this post will be looking at what’s passed and what looks interesting out of the new batch! First [...]
If I ever get a “smart” idea like this again, you have permission to slap me with a set fish!! This has been way harder than I had anticipated but I’ve pretty much reached the limits of my abilities, and collection so I really need assistance with the final push.
But as the famous catchphrase [...]
Hurrah for new anime season! Double hurrah for it being a bit lower on the numbers. That means that I can catch up with the last bunch of shows since I went for just over a week without watching any of them cos I was with family celebrating Christmas so I fell behind… This actually [...]
And now we bid farewell to another year and, quite frankly, one I’m quite happy to see the back of. It started well enough but the later half is definitely one I’ll be happy to forget. But enough about that, time to look back at the non-figure stuff which have caught my attention over the [...]
