The show that almost didn’t happen because of cars. Damn you machines and your need for repairs! Why can’t you just be like Transformers and fix yourself without our intervention! Get on that Google peoples and make it snappy. As with all requests, it sometimes takes a bit of search-fu to confirm that, no, we […]

It’s that time again where the numbers in the episode line up in sequential order. Sure it’s descending but it’s still very satisfying. Like finding out that you’ve got no spare parts left over after assembling some flat packed furniture. Within this mighty episode, Tim reviews Gokukoku no Brynhildr. We’re treated to a hard working […]

There’s probably a point where some poor bastard mangaka was sitting at their desk and trying desperately to think up a story for a deadline. “Gee, if only something would fall from the sky and knock my ass out so I have an excuse my editor will accept.” At that point, a coconut was conveniently […]

Sometimes life is just full of surprises. Like a train that manifests and runs you off the road when you start singing Ironic by Alanis Morisette. Other times it can be fairly predictable. Like when Tim digs into his list of requests to find a manga to review.

There is a special breed of nerd that doesn’t pop up in the usual places. Their crack is not teasers of the latest Marvel movie or screenshots of the potential bomb being built by DC. Theirs are spec sheets and exploded views in maintenance manuals and fiddly arguments on lone message boards with other engineer minded folks.

Doujinshi is something of a dirty word in manga. In the, for lack of a better term, Western market, doujinshi is often thought of as adult or hentai. While a fair amount of them do seem to be focused on pairing off characters for a little bit of naked fun times, the word is actually a bit more broad than that. It encompasses smaller, self published works that are not considered canon.

As always, we’ve come around to manga reviews. By some serendipitous happenstance, Tim managed to review a request that was received to Weltall’s inbox a few days earlier. Sure, it might have been mentioned once or twice before but we can pretend that it was meant to be.

.hack was incredibly dull and pretentious. This naturally means there are about thirty five sequels that have come out through the years. It never fails to ask the question, can we make dull people playing a dull game interesting? To be fair, we could never get past the early espisodes/volumes. A lot of mangas centered on MMOs also seem to explore in the same vein.

The ground of manga does not run red with the life blood of eviscerated works this week. Tim reviews Tokage no Ou where a boy with the ability to change his eye color finds out just how useless a power that is when confronted with people who can double jump and cut guns in half with their mind. This is a manga that goes on about pacing and Tim loves himself some pacing so you won’t be surprised at the rating.

Weltall tackles Red Storm which shares part of the name with a Tom Clancy novel(and game from 1988). Unfortunately, it does not show how ‘Murica can defeat the USSR through good ol’ fashioned ‘Murican gumption, grit and folksy sayings.
