Announcement

From now on I'll be using this blog entirely and pretty much abandoning the other one. I'll probably also change the name of this one to reflect the fact that I'll be putting more than just reviews here but I dunno maybe not I'm lazy and I doubt anyone cares.

Why Railgun is (Way) Better than Index.

Every time I thought of doing a review of Index, I kept thinking "Nah, I'll just endlessly compare it to Railgun.". It really would have been me being all like "Index sucks because Railgun did all this shit better 3/5 because it was still pretty enjoyable for the most part." So, rather than do that, why don't I just talk about why I feel this way and cut out the middle man?

1. Better Setting: Index is also set in Academy City, but it also goes into the "Magic Side" of things. The magic side of things doesn't get interesting in the least until that whole "New Testament" series, where the intricacies of it get explained better. Even then, the Science Side is just way more interesting. Until later on, the Magic Side wasn't anywhere near as compelling or fleshed out as the Science Side. We got a cool pseudo-science explanation for how esper powers work(it's basically Spiral Energy), but none for how magic works beyond the generic…

Anime of the Year Awards 2016 Presented in 4k TruHD(TM) Part 1: Za Worsto

2016 was a terrible year, because Trump won, some celebrities died, and people were super racist and sexist which never happened in any other year. The bad aspects of this year most certainly weren't things like politics becoming an enormous fucking joke because of things like this, it wasn't all of the terrorist attacks in europe(and even a couple in the states) that killed 100+ people total, and it for sure wasn't that california will bar police from arresting child prostitues, effectively legalizing child prostitution. No, no, Carrie Fisher and Prince died, a guy you don't like was elected, and like Beth totally dissed me at the party like OMG how could she say that???

But instead of an obviously sarcastic rant about le current year, how about I actually get onto talking about anime like I'm supposed to, unlike Giant Bomb when it comes to video games this year.

First off, since we're speaking about bad things of this year, let's do the obvious and discus…

Anime of the Year Awards 2016 Presented in 4k TruHD(TM) Part 2: Da Besto

Now that we've firmly established that 2016 was a god awful year for anime with several of the worst anime I've ever seen, and some real big disappointments as well, let's move on to showing why 2016 was a really great year for anime, with tons of surprisingly good and even great shows, and 3 whole 10/10 shows I had trouble choosing between for the top spot! Man, 2016 was a great year!

So here we go! May contain spoilers, so please read with caution:

Surprisingly Good Anime of the Year:
Phatasy Star Online 2 The Animation

What is, in essence, a commercial for PSO 2 is somehow actually a pretty good show. Not that good but still. For one thing this isn't just some story set in the PSO2 world, it's about people who play PSO2 and how the game builds important bonds and teaches them things about interacting and working together with others. I mean some weird shit starts to happen and it culminates in a crazy twist but it's totally worth it. I say check it out!
