I write about anime and stuff. Giant robots are pretty cool, too.

Hey Kaushik here, and this week I’m covering a video game. During their E3 conference last week, Sony announced that an alpha of Bungie’s upcoming title Destiny would be available to play for PS4 owners. I was already somewhat looking forward to this game, so I had to jump on it. Destiny is supposed to be a first person shooter RPG, releasing on September 9th on consoles.  It’s developed by Bungie of Halo fame, and has been something of a highly anticipated game for next generation consoles. From the earlier trailers and gameplay shown, people have surmised the game to be something of a Borderlands and Halo crossover, and playing the game last weekend, it’s a fairly accurate assessment. There are some differences though.

Hey, Kaushik here again with yet another anime review. This time it’s a bit of an older series, called True Tears. It was produced by PA Works, a studio I generally enjoy. The reason I picked up this show was because it was the only PA Works series I hadn’t seen, so I felt like I had to. It aired from January to March 2008, for a total of 13 episodes. It’s supposed to be based off a visual novel, but oddly enough it shares no characteristics with the visual novel beyond the name. But let’s go find out just what it’s all about.

Hey Kaushik here with another anime review. This week it’s Tonari no Seki-kun, or My Neighbor Seki. It’s a little bit different from the normal shows I review, as it’s a series of 7 to 10 minute shorts instead of full 22 minute episodes, but that detracts nothing from the over all quality of the show. Tonari no Seki-kun, or Seki-kun for short, is a pure comedy series that aired from January to May 2014, and is based off the manga of the same name. For the long and short of my thoughts on this show, well, it’s great. But for a more detailed review let’s keep going~ Tonari no Seki kun Title Continue reading »

Hey, Kaushik here with a new anime review. This week it’s Robotics;Notes, another anime adaptation of a 5pb. game like Chaos;head and Steins;gate before it. It originally aired in October of 2012, and ran from 22 episodes ending in March the following year. I’ll be reviewing the Blu-ray release of the series, both the subtitled version in original Japanese audio, and the English dub to the series. Without further ado, let’s go~

Hey, Kaushik here with this week’s installment of Mecha Monday! Today I’m going to bring you some impressions of one of the major mecha series this season, Captain Earth. It’s done by Studio Bones, who also did mecha series such as Star Driver and Eureka 7. I enjoyed both of those series, so me picking this series up to watch was pretty much a given. Unfortunately, so far it hasn’t been able to match up to those two shows before it, yet. Captain Earth Title Continue reading »

Hey, Kaushik here with another anime review. This time it’s Nagi no Asukara, P.A. Works’ latest show. Like most of their recent shows, it’s a romance/drama series focused on a group of kids. This time however, there’s a bit of a fantasy element to it all, with a different race of people comprising most of the main cast. I’m usually a fan of P.A. Works shows, like Hanasaku Iroha and Tari Tari. I’m always a sucker for their brand of drama. The show aired from October 3 2013 to April 3 2014, for a total of 26 episodes. Now without further ado, let’s get this review going~
