Binchou-tan – episode 3

March 23, 2006 on 9:26 pm | In Binchou-tan | Comments Off on Binchou-tan – episode 3

“Bin’s ‘Bin’ Day”

It’s amazing how well Furuhashi Kazuhiro is building up a world with each episode. Binchou-tan’s appeal increases incalculably with the introduction of new characters and the presentation of the idea that the town features some kind of –tan school, for –tans.

Mushishi – episode 16

March 23, 2006 on 9:25 pm | In Mushishi | Comments Off on Mushishi – episode 16

“The Daybreak Snake”

The first episode of Mushishi with no real conclusion: a life lived a day at a time, and a meditation on the value of memory.

Angel Heart – episode 11

March 23, 2006 on 9:22 pm | In Angel Heart | Comments Off on Angel Heart – episode 11

“Family Time”

Despite its wildly off model animation, this episode of Angel Heart does a good job of healing some relationships. It bows to several instances of bizarre comedy, and there are some hurdles I can’t quite overcome, but I would place this episode on the side of good.

Shinigami no Ballad (Ballad of the Death God) – episode 1

March 23, 2006 on 9:20 pm | In Shinigami no Ballad | Comments Off on Shinigami no Ballad (Ballad of the Death God) – episode 1

“Your voice”

Subtitled “Momo the girl god of death”, Shinigami no Ballad is Pony Canyon’s six part series to follow HanTsuki. It’s an episodic collection of stories about Momo and her visits to the dead and the dying.
So far I’m getting a good vibe from it.

Rescue Wings – episode 3

March 23, 2006 on 6:57 pm | In Rescue Wings | Comments Off on Rescue Wings – episode 3

“A Painful job”

A very good episode; I learned to fall in love with the sometimes grandiose nature of Rescue Wings and I learned that things cannot always go to plan in the world of rescue operations.

Binchou-tan – episode 2

March 19, 2006 on 7:40 pm | In Binchou-tan | 2 Comments

“Bin gets a job”

Binchou-tan reveals its genuine charm and inventiveness in this episode. Also there seems to be very little doubt that this for small children, and I’m kind of weirded out by that fact (despite my not inconsiderable collection of shoujo anime).

Good news all around!

March 15, 2006 on 6:19 pm | In Site News | Comments Off on Good news all around!

I hadn’t bothered to watch last week’s Bleach because C21 had been spreading vague words of its licencing. This press release from Viz leaves me no doubts as to its being licenced and so … goodbye, Ichigo and Kon! You’ve sure been … good to me!

The other good news is that I forgot that Anime Pilgrimage celebrated its two year anniversary last Wednesday. To retaliate I’ve transferred to WordPress because Movable Type was really starting to grind my gears. Into the deal I’ve even posted an aboot page featuring an eighteen month old photo of me standing next to a really, really tall man.
(don’t worry about the layout; I’ll make it cooler given some time)

There is no need to adjust your links; you may have to change your aggregation, though. I’ll get right on that. (Did anyone notice that blog好き rocks out this whole corner of the inter nets?)

HanTsuki – episode 6

“Both our hands”

Nice conclusion, but there’s no way I can recommend HanTsuki. It has too many flaws: irrational characters, a complete disregard for the laws of medicine, and slipshod animation.

If you’ve started watching HanTsuki, then know that you can finish it up okay. Otherwise there are better ways to spend 150 minutes.

Conclusion spoilers

Angel Heart – episode 10

“Angel Smile”

Wrap up for the Zheng Dao Fei civil war in the first half, with a return to comedy and also to emotion. Even Xin Hong gets an SD scene! That’s how far Angel Heart has come.
I love Kaori and Ryo too damned much, and I’m definitely glad to be fixed up after the last incident.

Mushishi – episode 15

“The Fabricated Spring”

This mystery takes an unprecedented 15 months to unravel. Winter, spring, the hints of love: this episode of Mushishi truly has everything.
