DVD-A-Day 8 – Ah! My Goddess TV Season 1 disc 2 Sunday, May 31st, 2009

Oops, fell asleep watching this one last night :\ Managed to finish it up this morning before work though, close enough! Seems its gotten its hooks into me after all, and I won't just be popping it in occasionally. Probably for the best, really, would hate to ...

No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle Trailier Sunday, May 31st, 2009

Woo, a trailer for No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle has surfaced. The first is easily one of my favorite Wii titles to come out so far, and this tease certainly seems to be just as awesome:

Manga-A-Day 8 – Dogs 0 Prelude Saturday, May 30th, 2009

New acquisition! I'd completely forgotten this was coming out, and so was pleasantly surprised to see it sitting on the shelf at Borders this afternoon. When I was actively following scanlations of Tenjou Tenge, this was constantly sitting off to the side of the translator's site staring ...

DVD-A-Day 7 – George Carlin: Complaints and Greivances Saturday, May 30th, 2009

Never expected to receive this for a Christmas present, but I did, so there you go. I do love Carlin's stuff, and I've only ever listened to bits of this one, so it was quite a nice treat to watch him give the full thing. Recorded less than ...

Manga-A-Day 7 – All-Purpose Cultural Catgirl Nuku Nuku Saturday, May 30th, 2009

Hrm, even given its thinness, that was pretty much less of everything than I was expecting. I've never gotten around to either the OVA or the TV series, but with an android female in the lead, its one of those things that is almost automatically on my radar. ...

Comics for the week of 5/27/09 Friday, May 29th, 2009

And another regular bit to add to the blogging, the weekly comics pulls... Starting things off with a hefty week that sees the ends of several stories and arcs, while a few others begin. DC/Vertigo:...

DVD-A-Day 6 – Karas: The Revelation Friday, May 29th, 2009

Hrm, well, that meandered a bit for the first third or so in presenting us with some back story on our lead. Sure, it helped flesh things out and clarified other parts as well, but in doing so it brought the extra-insane action of the first disc to a ...

DVD-A-Day 5 – Karas: The Prophecy Friday, May 29th, 2009

Heh, figures I'd break the streak in the first week. Ah well, that just gives me opportunity to tackle a 2-parter in one shot, so in goes Karas, a 40th anniversary OVA production by Tatsunoko that popped up a couple years ago whose box art looked somewhat ...

Manga-A-Day 6 – Gunparade March v3 Friday, May 29th, 2009

So, how well does the series finish? The interesting thing about our hero didn't really get any play, an unexpected threat shows up, sacrifices are made, the day is saved, and everything works out in the end. All things considered, a fairly generic tale with a couple underutilized ...
