She’s a cyborg! – Gunslinger Girl

Howdy!

Time Enforcer Anubis here with a fresh review!

Sometimes, you watch an anime that you realize you should’ve watched a long time ago. An anime that you so thoroughly enjoy, you wonder why it’s taken you so long to finally sit down and watch it. For me, this was one of those anime.

She’s against fighting inside a colony! – Mobile Suit Gundam 0080: War in the Pocket

Howdy!

Time Enforcer Anubis here with a fresh review!

People who grew up like I did will remember how, as a kid, war was cool, especially so when it involved giant robots. We dreamed of growing up and becoming the most badass ace mech pilots. The anime I have today focuses on a kid just like many of us were, which makes it all the more gripping.

She’s taken Bagram Airfield!

Howdy!

Time Enforcer Anubis here with another review!

In recent years, the modern-day military shooter genre has, in a way, become the new WWII shooter. In fact, the two big modern shooter franchises, Call of Duty and Battlefield, were both spawned from games based in WWII. Recently, however, another old WWII veteran franchise has made the jump into the present as well.

She’s joined the Black Knights! – Code Geass

Howdy!

Time Enforcer Anubis here with a fresh review!

There are many anime that try to be several things at once. Martian Successor Nadesico, for example, tries to be a harem series, a real robot series, and a space opera all at once (Among other things). It’s not an easy thing to pull off, but when an anime does manage to succeed, it’s all the better for it.

Americentrism in the Anti-Moe Brigade

Howdy!

Time Enforcer Anubis here with more about moé!

Not too long ago, Kgods, a friend of the site, directed me to an episode of Destroy All Podcasts DX. In the tail end of the episode, after briefly insulting VZ (Another friend of the site), there was a discussion about moé and its affect on the anime industry. The discussion, however, was less of a discussion and more of a long-winded explanation by one of the presenters, dripping with Americentrism.

She’s shot down a Xenon N!

Howdy!

Time Enforcer Anubis here with another review!

Some genres just aren’t around as much as they used to be. This is both a blessing and a curse, as the remaining games in these genres tend to be the hardest-of-hardcore, but as time moves on, said genres will slowly drift into obscurity. One such genre is the space-flight sim, which is the genre that the game I have today fits squarely in.

Operation Apex in the Circle: Mission Briefing

I am of the opinion that no work of art or media is above or beneath scrutiny.

That is to say, all works deserve deliberate examination. There is nothing that isn’t worth analysis, and there is nothing that “defies criticism.” Closer examination of a work of media may reveal aspects of it that could change the way people think about it, both for old and new works. Countless such examinations exist for anime such as Neon Genesis Evangelion, Revolutionary Girl Utena, and, more recently, Puella Magi Madoka Magica.

This operation, however, will take on an anime that was pushed aside disgustedly like the broccoli in a child’s plate by many fans. Disliked, ignored, or outright hated, this series garnered little examination from the fandom at large and, while it’s not difficult to see why it was pushed aside, the elements that originally squicked the individuals who now hate the show aren’t the only elements at work.

The Nintendo Double-Standard

Howdy!

Time Enforcer Anubis here with more commentary on gaming!

Back on the old blog, I made a post about the clamour for originality coming from gamers. It’s still something I think is an issue in the gaming community, and it’s related to the issue I present here.

Personnel Reconnaissance: Selnia Iori Flameheart

As far as ecchi anime goes, Ladies Versus Butlers! is about as good as it gets: Pure romance-comedy with a heavy dose of ecchi that doesn’t try to be anything other than an ecchi romance-comedy.

LvB is also special for another reason. It introduced a character that stuck with me quicker than most characters from other shows in the same genre.

That character is one Miss Selnia Iori Flameheart

She’s joined Celestial Being! – Gundam 00

Howdy!

Time Enforcer Anubis here with a fresh review!

Taking Gundam out of the Universal Century is a difficult thing to do well. Views are mixed about series such as Gundam Wing and Gundam SEED. They’re series some people may enjoy, but some people may despise, and Gundam 00 is no different.
