CG in anime has always been a bit of a contentious issue, and even a meme, since there have been so many shows that have miss-handled it to the detriment of the story they're trying to tell. I personally have seen very few shows that were fully, or mostly CG that I thought were enhanced by the addition of CG, but fortunately that is beginning to change.

Obsolete is one of the first fully CG shows that I have not only enjoyed, but felt was enhanced by the use of CG. True, if the right style and quality of 2d animation were used, an read more

We're fast entering the era of Isekai. There's no denying it. We've been hit with a constant deluge of it ever since Sword Art Online entered the picture, and it's not going away any time soon. Some hate it, some love it, but no matter what you think of it, you've gotta love a good parody.

The first great Isekai parody was indisputably Konosuba, but now a contender has arrived; following in its footsteps and even giving it a few distinct nods, the ponderously named "Didn't I Say to Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life?!" looks like it could become a comedy of similar read more

This, as a parody, should not be judged harshly.

It's the product (I suspect) of a few animators with too much time on their hands asking some of the voice actors to come do some stupid shenanigans with them. That said, it can actually be amusing. As far as parodies go, this one isn't bad, though I'd definitely recommend watching the actually show first, or alongside, since it make direct reference to it on a regular basis.

It follows the off-battle exploits of Tanya and her squad, from rotten potatoes to chocolate. It's really good stuff for when you're either a fanboy, read more

Youjo Senki, the Saga of Tanya the Evil.

An apt name for, what I believe, is an incredible show. It is one of very few to delve into a historical/fantasy setting with more intent than to merely showcase the latest in animation, color pallets, and fighting Lolies. Instead it goes far deeper and aims at a narrative that pits an antagonistic main character agains God himself. This makes for very interesting storytelling.

To start with the characters -
Tanya is an understandable, yet unfathomable, individual; singularly bent towards self-preservation and her own needs, she is very amusing to watch, particularly in how she interacts with both God, read more

Drifters - "Battle in a brand new world war."

That could be all I need to write since, as far as I've seen, the show has lived up to that thesis grandly. 

But lets talk about it a little more just for giggles.

This show was a bit of a wildcard for me personally, given that I haven't read the manga or seen either of the directors crowning achievements (Hellsing and the latest iteration of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure), but after the synopsis piqued my interest, and the Promotional Video's came out, I was sold. Further Drifters was produced by a studio that has not been responsible for any... read more

This OVA was based on a novel idea that was expressed pretty well in its opening thesis

"lets make the Mech shows we want to watch"

Unfortunately it does poorly in its execution of this idea.

It tries to cram a 12 or even 24 episode season's worth of ideas and info into a SINGLE episode, and ends up messing up pretty badly.

The characters themselves seemed decent to fairly interesting, but they were ruined by trying develop them in a one-episode story, and the sound/animation were both pretty stock.

The usage of energy-based plasma aliens and a dimension jumping sword turned me off like an EMP.

The one amazing read more

This short was made by a few animators from the Under The Dog franchise that had too much time on their hands, and is basically the product of their doodles and what I can only imagine to be one of the new guys playing with the soundboard. That said, it was made for fun, and not intended to be either a high-quality or serious production.

The reason I enjoyed it it because I looked up the youtube video, and saw what the creators had to say; the short was made at its animators expense, and not using any of the money that their read more
