Doki Doki School Hours (Sensei no Ojikan) Vol. 1 – Anime DVD Review


Doki Doki School Hours is that one anime based on a 4koma manga that people can’t help but compare to Azumanga Daioh. Not like that’s a bad thing to be associated with Azumanga…


Innocent Venus: Free Anime! (1st Episode)


So in typical ADV fashion, the first episode of Innocent Venus is available at IGN for streaming goodness. I previewed this almost a year ago (but I didn’t continue watching it due to the CG, and now I’m reminded again of how bad it is!) in case you want some screenshots.

Quick English VA Impressions:

  • Sana is okay, but she doesn’t sound young enough.
  • Annoying kid (Gora) is probably the best VA, which is weird considering that character is the most annoying.
  • Everyone else is pretty bad. Either sounding too emo (Jin) or cheesy (random terrorist dudes)

Shakugan no Shana: The Girl With Fire In Her Eyes Vol. 1 – Light Novel Review
