Haiyoru! Nyaruko-san First Impressions – behold the might of the unspeakable bar thing!


I went into this show not necessarily expecting much – I had originally watched the ‘first’ series, and had been largely unimpressed. This was mostly due to the episodes length, at 3 minutes each there simply was not enough time for anything meaningful to happen, and as such that series failed for me. The first episode of this new series, however, was great, with masses of comedy, brilliant characters and madness on a par with Kore wa zombie desu ka, although there is a distinct lack of cross-dressing. The series mixes Cthulhu Mythos of H.P Lovecraft with some whacky Japanese slapstick comedy along with an alien or two. Now I am not especially knowledgable about the Cthulhu Mythos, but, while some of the jokes may have gone over my head, there was more than enough there to satisfy anyone, whether they know about this stuff or not.

Review – Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon – The anime that makes less sense the more of it you watch


 

Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon (Horizon in the middle of nowhere) probably takes the top spot in the worst adaptations of 2011, it makes about as much sense as a chocolate hammer, and it was also a show that I enjoyed immensely. Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon is adapted from the immensely popular light novel series written by Minoru Kawakami and illustrated by Satoyasu. There are currently 8 novels in circulation and they are about 1-2 inches thick each.
