Past Performance is Always an Indicator of Future Results

With Space Dandy on the horizon, and the hype around Kill la Kill going strong, I’m reminded of Kids on the Slope, The Flowers of Evil, and Redline. While those three shows might have little in common visually and thematically, they do share a particular relation that I’d like to touch on.

NewYorkComicCast 2013: F@&% It! We’ll Do It Live!

The sixth NTR Radio Gaiden is here!

Gaiden episodes differ in that they have a narrower focus (not always related to anime, but usually). As a result, they’re usually either longer or shorter than normal episodes.
