Spring 2007 Anime Director Epidemic!


So I haven’t really been watching Tengen Toppa Gurren-Lagann, but apparently there was some kind of scandal that occurred due to the “unique” directing of the fourth episode, including the resignation of show’s producer.

Then, Kyoto Animation decided to switch directors on the Lucky Star anime, apparently due to lackluster humor? To be fair, the second and third episodes were chuckle inducing, but only for a few parts. The show is still no Azumanga, or even a Gaijin 4-koma, for that matter.

Then, Hinano dropped the bomb on a potentially earth shattering story! The characters in episode 4 of Kami-chama Karin look weird! Like, Steve Sutton weird!

Perhaps the Japanese superstition about the number 4 has a basis in reality. Or in this case, episode 4… Quick, someone get Animation Runner Kuromi on the job!

Manga Review

Stray Little Devil Vol. 2 – Manga Review


The author of Stray Little Devil mentioned in the afterword that panty shots weren’t allowed in this manga. I hadn’t really noticed, but maybe that means it’s time for me to stop reading this…

First Impressions Manga

Penguin Musume (ペンギン娘) Vol. 1 – Manga First Impressions


I just got a shipment from Yesasia of random stuff. It consisted of Disgaea PSP, and this random manga I bought called “Penguin Musume.” It’s in Japanese, so it’ll take me a while to read it. I did get through a couple of pages, so here are my first impressions.

Anime DVD Review

Coyote Ragtime Show Vol. 1: Fox Trot – Anime DVD Review


This is a milestone of sorts for Basugasubakuhatsu. It’s the first time I’ve reviewed a DVD of an anime series after doing a first impression review of the fansub. Pretty weird. I stopped watching the fansub after like the first episode anyway, so most of the DVD was new to me!
