Noitamina has had a rough year. After starting off strong with two commercially successful TV shows and the ticket selling Psycho Pass movie, the programming block’s epic plans fell apart pretty quickly. One of the three Project Itoh movies was delayed due to Studio Manglobe’s bankruptcy, The Empire of Corpses’ ending was rushed out the production door, and Ranpo Kitan and Punch Line absolutely bombed with their blu-ray sales. So with things looking bleak, Noitamina watchers like me looked towards the nearest source of optimism, aka The Perfect Insider. Was this final show of the Fall 2015 season enough to save a year of otherwise disappointing Noitamina projects, or was it just another failure? Continue reading
Wow. What a day. I am tired. Midterms all around. Stressful day. And now what do I do to clam myself. What this creature work her magic. Continue reading
Away with the introduction. Now it’s time for the real fun.(Sorry For Delays. Like Holy fuck why is this here delays.) Continue reading
It’s pretty difficult to decide if this show was good or bad, but it’s easy to say it was cool. Very, very cool. Continue reading
Why must you do this to me Studio Bones? After stealing my heart and making me shout in fanboy delight, you end on an episode that is quite literally titled, “The End of the Beginning,” and then force me to wait for a second season in Winter. You’re cruel, oh so cruel. Anyways, in case you can’t already tell from those previous statements, Akagami no Shirayuki-hime has ended its first season, and with a long wait ahead of us there’s no better time talk about all this show’s many features. So with that said, let’s get this thing started! Continue reading
Yes we know that we’re barely making it through spring, but we ain’t going nowhere. Everything we’ve promised WILL be out before the end of the year and we WILL cover this season as well. It’s crunch time for us folks, so here’s a taste of what we’ll give this year (check the bottom for what’s in progress). Continue reading
It’s finally time. Yep, after three months of waiting for it, the finale of Kekkai Sensen aired on TV, allowing me to finally talk about this series’ final two episodes. Really, I would complain about the delay, but honestly these final two episodes are so amazing that I find it hard to care. The show may have left me bated on a cliffhanger for months, but when I see something this, well, perfect, I can’t help but forgive it for all its transgressions. I mean I loved these final episodes so much I watched them both twice, and the final episode is 46 minutes!… Okay 46 minutes of beauty, but that still means I spent an hour and half of my life just watching this one episode. And to be honest, I would do it all over again. Continue reading
Well that was bad. Yep, after my strange optimism after the first three episodes of Ranpo Kitan, I can now safely say that this show is really just plain awful. Sure it has a few good moments, I mean when your stories are based off the works of Edogawa Ranpo you at least have a few good moments here and there, but overall this show is incompetent in a surprising amount of ways. Now, while I would love to spout out the same information I said in my last post, that would be pretty boring and frankly lazy. So instead I’m going to shake things up and take on these final episodes case by case. Not only will this help me really dive into the nitty gritty of each individual arc, but it will just show the many different ways Ranpo Kitan consistently screws itself over due to lackluster execution in both its writing and direction. And with that disclaimer out of the way, let’s dive on into the madness that is Seiji Keishi and noitamina’s daring mystery project. Continue reading

And now that that’s out of the way, it’s time to cover the third season of High School DxD. This is easily my favorite harem and I was eager to cover it this season. Unfortunately I can’t be the bringer of good news this time, because this season was considerably weaker than the previous two.Onto the review!
Akagami no Shirayuki-hime is perfection… Okay, maybe not literally, but in my heart it’s king! Ever since Akatsuki no Yona ended in March, I’ve had a strong desire for a second season, and luckily for me Akagami definitely fulfills my need for a shoujo fantasy-adventure with a strong female protagonist (A very specific subgenre indeed). However, that doesn’t mean this show is just a clone of Yona. In fact, Akagami brings it’s only unique flavor to the genre, providing an experience that’s equal part classic Disney princess and smart, sentimental character drama. Continue reading
