Review: C-The Money of Soul and Possibility Control

Since Trix had posted this one in our spotlight, I was interested in it and decided to give it a spin. I can honestly say its been a while since I’ve seen an ending that left such an impact on me. The emotion put into this anime was really strong and it left you dying to know what happens. Even better it had a solid ending that made the whole journey feel worth having. All that being said, there were such a ridiculous amount of holes in this story. I…

Trixie’s Hidden Treasurers #1

What’s more valuable, your future or your present? The first anime in my new segment called Trixie’s Hidden Treasures poses this very interesting question to the audience in a unique way. I’m alluding to the never talked about underrated show C: The Money of Soul and Possibility Control. The show’s premise is that there is another world where people wager their future for unimaginable amounts of cash in the present. The battles take place with personas that represent the future that is on the line. If this concept alone interests…

Interviews with Monster Girls Episode 4 – Protect our demi-chans

Last week we ended with Kusakabe outside Takahasi-sensei’s office feeling rather depressed about over hearing other students bad mouth her in the bathroom. Hikari overhears Takahasi-sensei consoling Kusakabe and understands the whole situation and is visibly frustrated for her friend. While trying to come up with ideas on how to deal with Kusakabe and then also a way to eliminate the gossip he runs into Satou-sensei and upon describing the situation, Satou-sensei, while trying to maintain a safe distance away from Takahasi-sensei, volunteers to help. By the way, she is…

Masamune-kun’s Revenge Episode 4 – Makabe is kind of dense

Last week Makabe ended on fairly good terms with Adagaki even after being knocked flat for pulling the old “I heard a scream in the female dressing room and as a male, I’m going to charge in and most undoubtedly get socked in the face by my female counterpart” routine, so this week he does a little bit more research on how to win a maidens heart. Naturally he is bookmarking good lines out of shoujo manga because honestly, who wouldn’t. Although he ends up picking the creepiest lines ever…

Senjougahara on Guitar Everybody!!

This week in Fuuka, we are introduced to a new character and I half expected her to attack our main character with a stapler instead of a guitar to the face. Especially that first shot introducing her when she stood up at the table I feel like I was looking at Monogatari’s Senjougahara. The way the uniform fell, her pose, and her attitiude was making me wonder if it was an easter egg or not. As the episode went on we learned some things about the character that were very…

Game Review: Life with a Slave-Teaching Feeling

Obviously anyone who knows me has heard me say that lewd smutty garbage ruins a lot of perfectly good anime and romances, especially when its in the form of shameless fan service just to get the perverts to watch. I believe that such things have crippled a lot of genre including anything Yuri. That being said I occasionally review some things that catch my interest as being more than just porn, but something a bit more special. This is one of those cases. I’ve never really played any eroge games…

First Impression: Bang Dream

Sensei pointed me in the direction of this one that was just posted on Crunchyroll and I have to say I’m surprisingly very excited for this one. What we have is another “starting a band” anime along side Fuuka. Where Fuuka captures Romance and Passion for your dreams, Bang Dream has an almost whimsical feel about Discovering Music for the first time and wanting to be a part of that world you discovered. I think the atmosphere that it has could really make it a good one. The Lighting is…

First Impressions: Scum’s Wish

  Have you ever watched two trains on the same tracks headed for a collision?! I hadn’t either until I watched the first episode of Scum’s Wish and let me tell you it gave me the emotional impact of the former statement. Actually it was more like 5 different trains all headed for each other head-on. You are probably wondering, “that bad of a show huh?” You’d actually be mistaken it was probably one of the best first episodes I’ve seen this season. Between the masterful art direction, animation, the stellar voice…

Masamune-kun’s Revenge Episode Three (With Ep. 1-2 Breakdown)

Makabe Masamune has waited eight years to return to his hometown. The reason he needed eight years was because he wanted to lose a lot weight after he was rejected by a girl he liked and given the nick name “Pig Foot.” This girls name is Adagaki Aki otherwise known as the “Cruel Princess” which is how sometimes Makabe refers to Adagaki with his inner monologue. This is the girl he has come back for to exact his revenge. Makabe is not without his own faults. The fact that he…

Interviews with Monster Girls Episode Three (with Ep. 1-2 breakdown)

First off I will give a disclaimer that this may be one of those series that was created just for people like me, who tend to get hyped up for a show that has really quirky and zany side characters. So far I have not been disappointed. The main protagonist in this series is Takahashi Tetsuo a biology teacher at a high school with a fascination for the same things I have a fascination for. People who are outside of the norm, that have interesting quirks and personas. He’s always…
