This episode we deal with the sleazy writer, who is the resident of the Inn. As we all know that this series is about work and some of its core concepts, and this one being two: 1.) You do not doubt your customers 2.) Sticking goes not by strength but by guiding of the gully […]

This episode takes another turn with introducing the concept of parallel worlds, and that an alteration to one timeline can actualy create another parallel universe in where the events altered by the time-traveler becomes a reality. I am getting to see a title pattern here: almost all titles end in the word “Paranoia”. Even with […]

This episode is centered around the concept of work, and how important it is to be able to get the skills and the concentration on how to do it. You get catchphrases such as “Careless Effort does nothing but harm.” This ought to make those people who do half-assed work or those who are not […]

I find this first episode captivating, making you feel for the main character Ohana from the beginning. We see her as a normal city girl who had to make decisions in the house, then slapped into a bucolic setting wherein a more traditional way of life is the rule. One would actually think that if […]

Screen clipping taken: 4/11/2011, 1:09 AM Persona 4 Anime Countdown at http://www.mayonaka-tv.jp shows that there is only 21 hours left before the launch of the official site. I just hope that their adaptation won’t be bad. But I was secretly hoping that they’d show a continuation rather than just an adaptation. Anyway, when the counter […]

        It seems that I’ve completed a bunch of anime series last season just today =)) Anyway, just finished Infinite Stratos. And we’ve come to this episode, where the action actually just picked up. About time– but at the last episode? Taking into consideration that IS is actually an ongoing light novel, […]

Screen clipping taken: 4/11/2011, 9:35 PM Despite what others may say, I found Fractale’s story interesting and its ending quite good– good enough to give at least a happy one. The series as a whole resembled something like a Utopian world gone bad, and that the people are degenerating and becoming overly-dependent to a system […]
