Rokka: Braves of the Six Flowers Review

Well damn I haven’t been having much luck with protagonists lately, but at least they haven’t been so infuriating that I wanted to quit watching… Oh hey Rokka didn’t see you there, you pretentious douche. As you can probably tell I’m a little bitter but it’s through love I swear! Rokka: Braves of the Six Flowers has all the makings of an epic fantasy anime, but it takes two steps forward and one step back into a bear trap ¬_¬

Little Witch Academia Review

Well move aside Worst Witch xD we have a new candidate for the clumsy, gender locked, witch archetype. This is actually a two for one deal on reviews as I was recently able to watch both the short film Little Witch Academia and the second longer film Little Witch Academia: The Enchanted Parade. As you can probably tell already, Little Witch Academia is centered around a school of witches, and like all magic schools we have 3 main characters to follow. In the opening first few minutes you can already tell it’s going to be cute and charming as hell with its animation style and set up. It’s like the love child of Worst Witch, Harry Potter with a dash of Kiki’s Delivery Service.

Le Portrait de Petit Cossette Review

Well you can’t even trust your own expensive glassware anymore without having flipping spirits inhabiting them. This week we delve into a “tragic love story” in Le Portrait de Petite Cossette. I have to put the tragic love story in quotations because while it certainly is tragic, it’s for all the wrong reasons.

Look at its tragicness!!!

So yeah as you might have gathered I wasn’t all that impressed with this anime (well actually a 3 episode OVA), it stars a young artist named Eiri who works at his family’s antique shop, one day after looking through the newest batch of items coming in he finds a very beautiful Venetian glass and well everything might as well of ended there.

Paranoia Agent Review

Well here we go, all aboard the express train to the human psyche. Please enjoy the sights; regret, fear, helplessness and guilt. Paranoia Agent has it all, which maybe I should have guessed by the title but to be honest I thought this was going to be more of a race against time to catch the ‘bad guy’. Instead we get a glimpse into multiple lives and the fears that dwell within.
