So… Harleen “Harley Quinn” Quinzel. Fan favorite ever since she appeared on Batman: The Animated Series in 1992. This last year they announced she was getting her own TV series, and it looked promising. And it was enjoyable for a time! And then suddenly… it wasn’t.

So. This review is less timely than the other two prior were. Don’t really have much else to say about that. Just that anime season starts line up very nicely with when my college terms start, and that I just felt like binging a bunch of RedLetterMedia instead of watching literally anything else for two weeks. Because of that, there’s going to be less summarization on these because I’m certain everyone and their mom already has done that.
Anyways, here we go. This Seasonal Review entry covers anime released from January 2nd to January 8th, along with Obsolete, which aired on YouTube in its entirety on December 3rd.
No, that Lego video game review hasn’t come out. Oops.
Here we go, the beginning of a new anime season and the beginning of my career as a college sophomore! Hopefully this time I won’t fail half my classes. Well, I definitely won’t, because I’m taking an odd number, so failing half would be impossible. Yes, I’m safe! I’ll be doing something a little bit different this time–instead of forcing myself to watch an entire episode if I’m not enjoying it, I’ll stop and I will, of course, make a note of such in the review. I’ll also be splitting the season up a little differently, due to the heavy skew of anime released during the first week of the month compared to the second week.
This Seasonal Review entry will cover anime released from October 2nd to October 5th, as well as Cannon Busters, which was released in its entirety on August 15th.
Welcome back to the seasonal review! This entry covers anime released from July 8th to July 14th. I’ll also mention other anime that will start airing sometime before the season ends, but can’t review yet because, well, they’re not out.
Well, here we go, the main event, the thing I really wanted to do with this dang blog. The seasonal review, where I watch the new anime of the season and give ’em my opinions based on the first episode. This entry will cover anime released from July 1st to July 7th, along with the Netflix anime 7 Seeds that was released in its entirety on June 28th. I will be skipping over shorter comedic anime (that tend to be more difficult to find subtitled releases for), as well as additional seasons of anime I haven’t watched.
Okay so pride month ended yesterday. Whatever. I’m doing this now anyways. This is another thing I’m going to try and do alongside reviews and my inevitable “anime season review” thing that will come out at the end of this week, after the season kicks off in earnest. Just a list of things I like based around a specific theme, specifically in this case, media with canon LGBT+ rep, and not just things I like to pretend has LGBT+ rep, which is… basically everything (oops). I’m also not listing anything that is um, not good with it’s rep, or media you’ve probably already heard of, like say Sailor Moon or The Legend of Korra. Here we go.
Hatsune Miku, and by extension VOCALOID, is a cultural phenomenon. Almost everyone has seen or heard the twin-tailed virtual diva, whether its in concert, in anime, or in poorly translated YouTube music videos. While many consider her the first VOCALOID, this is false, and while I could go into the expansive history of the VOCALOID product, I’ll spare you the trouble. What’s important for this interview is that one man saw this wave of hype when the product was first released over a decade ago in 2007, and chose to buy the succeeding VOCALOID product released by Crypton Future Media, Kagamine Rin & Len, and start using them for vocals, leading to his two most famous works being released in April 2008: “The Daughter of Evil” and “The Servant of Evil”, becoming the keystone for his expansive multimedia series entitled The Evillious Chronicles.
