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 y’all! A couple of months ago, Sony Music Entertainment Korea released its first female group, Wings. Made up of only two members, this group released a MV unlike any k-pop video I’ve seen in a while. While the live version of the song has a cute and lively dance, the video itself is fairly dark, even alluding to a horror movie. I haven’t seen such a promising debut in a long time. Let’s take a look at the debut MV from Wings, Hair Short.

The other night as I was scanning through my boyfriend’s Netflix, because let us be honest ain’t nobody buy their own Netflix, after my second or third roundabout through the hundred or so uninspiring titles, I came across a very curious treasure. Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing directed by none other than my homeboy Joss Whedon. Needless to say in full loyal fangirl manner, I gave it a go, and it is this title that is the subject of this week’s review!

Gundam Unicorn Episode 7: A Newtype Hope

More than a year has passed since the previous episode came out, and the feature length finale couldn’t have come soon enough. With high expectations set and many questions needed answering, the final episode goes above and beyond what it set out to do. Not only does it end rather well, but it provides closure for Char’s Counterattack and the early UC era at large. While its attempts to bridge the early and later UC eras are arguable, and while it uses “space magic” a bit liberally for the UC era, it has a solid enough plot, meaningful culmination to the various character developments in the series, and is entertaining through and through.

It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of Valiant Comics. At least once a month, I regale my loyal readers with my thoughts on at least one, if not more, new issues from the publisher. I’m today to instead talk about some other guys who have a great perspective on Valiant, and will probably give both new fans and old a greater link to the Valiant Universe. I’m here to talk about one of my favorite new podcasts, Valiant Effort!
