This episode starts off pretty strong talking about Kenji Mizoguchi’s Streets of Shame.

But it spirals out of control and eventually we talk about the resurgence of the Japanese right, and eventually GATE.

Yamada-Kun and the 7 Witches

December 10, 2015 § Leave a comment

For the first time in a long time, I talk about news.

The news in question is Makoto Shinkai’s new movie coming out next August, titled “Kimi no Na ha” and that Diskotech is going to be putting out Night on the Galactic Railroad (thank you Diskotech).

And then I review an anime that is about teenagers exploring their bodies while having whacky anime high school adventures. Yamada-Kun and the 7 Witches is pretty fun.

What’s not to like? It’s got boys kissing in episode one.

Because I’ve been consistently watching this show for 2 years (I checked the old episodes and verified this), I decided to go ahead and start talking about it. It has so much for people who are into baseball anime…

It’s also really silly, as serious as high school baseball is, it’s still high school xD.

ED theme: Dvorak’s 9th II Movement (the most anime piece of classical music ever)

Legend of the Galactic Heroes Episode 14: Liberation of the Frontiers

In this episode, we learn why Scorched Earth tactics violate human rights, but that said all of this is over contested territories between two different systems of coercion. I mean, the romanticism of frontier life is the libidinal economy of colonialism, but whatever. lol. A lot of us dream of a better life and I’m equally as guilty (if we could even say that dreaming is a sin… but our dreams should be bigger than having a wife and kids on our own planet…)

Enough of my anarchist ways in the comments.

Let’s hope that Yang Wen-Li and the gang survive this stupid war.

ED theme: The first ending to the show lol. It feels the most appropriate.
