About a month or so ago, my brother took a trip to Japan. When he asked me if I wanted him to bring me anything back, the first thing I thought of was naturally a cardboard box that said “mikan” on it. I mean, it’s not like I can just order one of those online! After trying to explain the allure of such an item (and failing; he’s not a big anime watcher), I just told him to get me whatever. He succeeded in getting some cool stuff, but I’m still without a mikan box.

Recently, gg fansubs released this anime with the description: “This anime is so serious that it’s a comedy.​” I figured then that it would at least good for a laugh. What I got was the humor of Suzumiya Haruhi Ep. 1, except that with this anime, it’s totally unintentional!

Nishi no Yoki Majo – Astraea Testament (Good Witch of the West) – Anime First Impressions

With a name like “Good Witch of the West,” I thought this anime was probably going to be a Wizard of Oz gaiden or something… It turns out that Nishi no Yoki Majo is actually a fairy tale romance anime. I’d read some pretty good reviews for this anime, so I decided to take give it a try.

Before “Asahina Mikuru no Bouken,” there was “Peter Pan no Bouken!” This anime came out in 1989, and was recently fansubbed by C1. So does this anime pass the test of time, or is it teh suck?
