Tag: Ginga Densetsu Weed
Spoiler alert: mild spoilers for Death Note vol. 8 and beyond, major spoiler for Higurashi seventh arc (beyond the anime). Although I firmly hope that I can find time for it, there may not be a Tuesday Rumble next week, since on the 30th I should be travelling over a hundred miles from home for [...]

I can now exclusively reveal that the reason my blog is so HARD GAY is because I have Lui chained up in my basement. As the days became depressingly short and winter tightened its grip upon the land, I had the great idea of summarising all the 2006 series I watched in one great ‘Annual [...]

Those with the ability to recall trivial and largely useless information may recall that some time ago, I wrote an article about second seasons that directly followed on from the first, and whether they were always destined to be inferior to their predecessors. The conclusion seemed to be that, actually, despite the stigma attached to [...]
I usually use this section to ramble about a random and vaguely relevant topic that no one really cares about, but given the sudden resurgence of the great “blogs need this, that and the other” debate (well, I guess corydorf got his wish of making people refer to other posts, go trackback power!), I thought [...]
Yes, I know I’ve been promising more posts on Ginga Nagareboshi Gin for a while, but ASD have just retranslated episode 1 with better subtitles, which I feel will reduce what little hilarity I was able to squeeze from the series. In short, I wasn’t able to see a good way to parody the series, [...]
Marie Antoinette explains the principles of advanced disguise. If not exactly sparse, this week sees a few familiar names absent from the roster (but undoubtedly waiting for the flood of releases that I sense will occur next week). In the meantime, I’ve finally made good on my promise to catch up on a few more [...]

I know I kept saying that I was going to do a parody for this, but having rewatched episode one, I can see that Gin does not lend itself to parody as readily as its successor. Instead, I’ll be adopting a different format- a paragraph or two five of tongue-in-cheek summary, followed by a guide [...]
The named characters are huddled around Weed in an attempt to give him some bodily warmth. Weed awakens. Weed: Where is Jerome? Minor Dog: Sorry, he had to die to give you the strength and resolve to fight on. Back at the battlefield, brown dogs fight each other. Finally, Akame reaches Gajou. Battle Message: The [...]
Keroro is not pleased with the state of the summer season. After the sparseness of last week, everything seems to have returned in full force in readiness for the Round-Up’s one month anniversary. In light of all the drops of previous weeks, I’ve picked up a number of new series on the anime front, although [...]

The episode opens with a dramatic reconstruction of the end of episode 24. Hougen: Do we have to do this again? I know she’s going to knock me into the river. Reika: I won’t be deprived of any time onscreen, even if it is just a flashback! Reika knocks Hougen into the river again. Hiro [...]
