Pandora to Akubi is a very lovely surprise to a weary anime traveller like me. Very clearly a passion project, I’m sad to see it go unnoticed in the western anime sphere. I put a ‘maybe?’ next to this show on my list of 2019 movies I still want to watch and that ‘maybe?’ very much stands for ‘maybe this will get subtitled’. Yet, as it does time and time again, the passion of a small group of creators I know almost nothing about, manages to reach halfway across the globe through the power of the internet, reminding me in the process of the power read more

If you rewatch a lot of stuff from your childhood, you’ll find after a while that half the stuff you watched as a kid was really bad, whilst the other half is surprisingly still quite good. However, considering the amount of excitement you likely felt for these works as a kid, even if you still like it, a lot more than half the stuff you watched as a kid is not as good as you remember it being. I personally have only experienced a couple pieces of media from my childhood that I liked better as an adult, simply because I am capable of appreciating read more

Kiratto pri chan is an ugly duckling of an anime. Season 1 was packed with a lot of potential and a lot of insufficiencies. It was a series filled with interesting artistic choices and strange things to love about it, but it was marred by a sludgy stream of mediocrities. I think a lot of people have had that same experience of watching a fifty episode kids show, loving a lot about it, but ultimately giving it a 6 or a 7 because it had 30 episodes of bullshit holding it down. What a shock was it to me then, when, for a brief period read more

When I was a child my uncle told me that when he was in college, he and his roommates, after a milk puking accident and a series of subsequent lab experiments, had discovered cheese. He told me that the only reason he’s not being paid licensing fees from all over the world, is because filling in the form to file his patent seemed like too much work at the time. In hindsight I can clearly tell this was a lie. I mean, my uncle went to college in the early 80s, but this anime from the late 70s has cheese written all over it. It read more

I remember seeing the first few episodes of pokemon Black and White on TV when they were first coming out over here and I was rather upset about them. My biggest gripe was with Ash’s character design, which was made to look younger. So I can totally understand the mindset behind the people who are upset about the change in art style the show has made, which is much bigger in contrast than it was in Black and White. Yet I’m not on their side this time. In fact I really love the new art style and how colourful and round it is. In fact read more

When I first started watching Kiratto pri chan I had only recently gotten into shows for young girls. The realization had been half a decade in the making, if not my whole life, but only in late 2017/ early 2018 did I realize that I didn’t just like cute things in anime, but I also liked shows for little kids. So it was then, as I was watching and immensely enjoying the beginning part of hugtto precure, whilst I was hungering for more weekly kids shows to keep up with, that two little shows started airing named Aikatsu friends and kiratto pri chan.

When I was a kid, I noticed a pattern, a law of sorts, that every so often I would look back on my self from 2 years ago and cringe. I would see my former self for a fool and be ashamed of how stupid he was. This law definitely didn’t keep holding true forever, but upon re-watching this weird anime I watched 2 years ago, I suddenly had that same feeling again. I don’t feel it quite as strongly; I definitely don’t feel I was an idiot for looking at this anime the way I did, but I do feel like I was far read more

Mizue Mirai’s animations are noteworthy for creating the sensation of a digital-esque cleanliness, despite being hand drawn. Most of Mirai's works feel like they're proof of concepts, but Wonder feels complete and in my mind is his magnum opus. This film came together when somewhere in 2012 Mirai decided to start drawing one second of a short film every day for a year, with evey day continuing from the last day. Though some parts of the film feel much simpler, as if Mirai was too busy that day to create anything impressive, the vast majoritiy of this film is wonderfully animated, with an enormous amount read more

This might be the first clear instance of this type of anime. This anime is one of the oldest OVA's out there and it tells its story almost entirely through music video. The closest thing older than this that I can think of that does a similar thing is Belladonna of Sadness, which I think might have inspired this OVA to some extent. It's a little Ironic, though, that this anime, mostly based around music, is most interesting for its visuals. The songs are fine, but they're nothing impressive; it's really the visuals you watch this OVA for.

The story is about a boy who read more
