Review: “Baka and Test” Season 2 + OVA: What a Baka Show

by Classic Speedyon October 7, 2013
Over the years of watching anime, I’ve really come to dislike the comedy genre in particular.  And it’s really a shame, because some of the first anime I ever bought were comedies (Excel Saga, Galaxy Angel, Azumanga Daioh, Abenobashi), and I enjoyed them.  But in the last few years, I’ve felt a strong disconnect with […]

Review: “Heaven’s Lost Property: The Angeloid Of Clockwork” Half-Time Heroine

by Chad Boninon September 23, 2013
Tomoki and the New World Discovery Club are up to their usual antics! Fighting giant chickens isn’t the strangest thing they’ve done in their time as a club; that may belong to the giant wave of flying panties, the snowball fight to end all snowball fights, the wrestling contest, or the fact that perverted teen […]

I also greatly enjoyed the re-written, pop culture-heavy dub, which took extensive liberties with the original show. Generally I […]
