The rest of the group refuse to go along with it, and instead… Continue reading Higurashi When They Cry – Gou Episode 10 & 11 Review
The Pupa short anime series is notorious for being one of the worst anime out there. With twelve episodes, just four minutes each you’d be forgiven for thinking it can’t be that bad – how can something go so wrong in such a short period of time? But Pupa manages the impossible, and in it’s… Continue reading Pupa Anime vs Manga- What Went So Horribly Wrong?

I also own the visual novels that the anime is based off, but haven’t gotten around to playing them (oh that ever growing Steam backlog). So while I… Continue reading Higurashi: When They Cry – New Episode 1 Review

Until he notices a strange girl with an eyepatch, except no one else seems to notice her, or at least they try not to. ‘Another’ is one of my all… Continue reading Another (Anime): Halloween Snapshot
I know it’s technically Saturday night – but I have a good reason! I was at work all day Friday and had a terrible migrane and today I was at Supernova (a post about that coming soon)! Anyway onto the review. Also beware! Some creepy images below 😛 I talked a bit about Kowabon in… Continue reading Kowabon: Technology meets Terrifying – Freaky Fridays
