June 21, 2016 § Leave a comment

I haven’t done a First Impressions episode in a while, also I haven’t watched a full series since Akame Ga Kill, so here we go.

This is Dororo

To be honest I kind of like this sliding scale between garbage and treasure.

Legend of the Galactic Heroes episode 18: The Lippstadt Conspiracy

There’s a lot of politicking in this episode. I suppose that’s not unique to this one!

Ironically I imagine Bernie Sanders would probably love this show, since it resonates with his whole “young, capable people being proactive in politics” appeal.

Naruto Shippuden: Ninshu’s Cruel Optimism

June 16, 2016 § Leave a comment

I saw the latest two episodes of Naruto and really wanted to talk about Hagoromo, the Sage of the Six Paths and what I thought about his story and the story of Ninja-kind.

Getting followers like a religious leader!

Getting followers like a religious leader!


In season 1, the first adventure that Naruto goes on is protecting a bridge builder, who wants to build a bridge to allow his town to have economic independence from a greedy mafia-type – which, in many ways, mirrors the story of Hagoromo and the thief in the recent episodes of Naruto.

The Last Zabi

June 13, 2016 § Leave a comment

I talk about one of the coolest characters in all of Gundam, Mineva Lao Zabi, or as I keep calling her, Audrey Burne.

One thing I didn’t talk about is the director’s comment that she would’ve been made moe if the series didn’t sell. Her presence would be mediated by sales, which is still scary. The hierarchical structure of man-over-woman is, despite a nice image of Audrey, still in place.

Akame Ga Kill

June 13, 2016 § Leave a comment

I reviewed another bad show. I’ve been letting Hulu decide what to watch after each episode of Naruto that I watch so I need to not do that.

If you want a shallow, grim show with anime querks and Tomino-inspired death counts, this may be for you.

I tried a new segment where I read through some reviews on the Akame ga Kill MAL page.
