    Episode One: The Telltale Head Credit where it’s due; this isn’t the exposed cleavage I was expecting Despite my general fondness for trash-tier bubble economy OVAs, I must confess that Angel Cop, surely one of the absolute pillars of that ‘throw money at anything’ attitude that so defines...

    Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken! ep6

    Nothing hugely revelatory to say, but as I figured this entire comment would have needed to be in spoiler tags, I thought I might as well make a thread in here. I really like how the show has subtly worked in the detail of Asakura carrying her toy bunny around with her as a comforter. I saw it...

    Glasgow Anime is (Not) Dead.

    Nakama Britannica Podcast 21: Favouritcast!

    Seeing as this is episode 21, it might have been clever if we'd all turned up wearing American football helmets and made jokes about eyeshields. On the other hand, this would have been completely pointless, as you can't see us, so you'll have to make do with this episode instead. This time...
