Block almost conquered!

Monster 63, Tide-Line Blue 11, Sugar, Howl’s Moving Castle and Abenobashi should all be winging their ways to you soon!

Oh yeah, Appleseed too. I also owe you Haibane Renmei.

I’m just that dedicated.

Angel Heart – episode 1 (raw)

So hungry was I for Angel Heart that I obtained it raw. If I hadn’t known the story’s premise, I might have had more trouble: but, armed with what I know, I was able to interpret what was going on almost exclusively through Hirano Toshiki’s excellent direction.

Tide-Line Blue – episode 9

“The globe – the new map”

Ostrich angst doesn’t work quite as well in this episode. The rest of this show is really firing on all cylinders, now, so that damned bird is forgiven. It’s a large mercy that the last few episodes of this series have been so good, because there are only three episodes left!
