    Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045 S2 ep2-3 (Eng Dub) Lupin III: Part 2 ep46-47 (Eng Dub) Something else I think the newer series' struggle to recapture is the earlier shows' anarchic sense of humour- one of these eps starts off with Lupin prank calling Zenigata just for the hell of it, for example...

    Nier Automata ep2-3 It’s a shame to hear this has gone on hiatus (not that I’d want them to try and keep producing it if the staff are ill), I‘ve actually warmed to it a bit more now that it’s stepped back from both the dodgy CGI and also following the game’s plot quite so closely. It...

    Yasha (1985) Reformed ex-Yakuza Ken Takakura finds his hard but peaceful existence as a small-town fisherman thrown into turmoil when a flashy former hostess and her drug runner boyfriend (Yuko Tanaka and Takeshi Kitano) take over the local tavern. Despite sounding like the setup for a scrubby...

    Lupin Zero ep4-6 [end] It might have benefitted from being 10-12 episodes instead of 6, I think giving Lupin and Jigen more screentime to bond as friends would have made their partnership more believable, but on the whole this was pretty solid, and I feel it’s a shame that I’ve seen so few...

    Recently started playing Yakuza Kiwami, so decided to try drawing best / worst boy.

    Revenger ep1 Eh. There's nothing particularly wrong with this, it just feels a bit ordinary to me and I was not sufficiently interested to want to continue it. I think the story needed a stronger hook. Bastard!! (1992) OVA 1 English dub After some deliberation, I decided to try watching...

    Retro Anime Podcast - Episode 31 'Toy Families'

    Had to look up what Yagami's Family Affair was and uh, yeah... good luck. To-Y is one I seem to remember hearing positive things about, but never got around to checking out though, so would be interested to know what you make of that one.

    Ranma 1/2 ep17-18 I was wondering when Shampoo would turn up - I never did get far enough into the manga to see her introduction, although I know she's one of the regulars. There doesn't seem to be all that much to her character so far, but the episode allowed for some nice visual gags all the...

    Nah, afraid not - just a study from a clothes catalogue as I wanted to try a different approach to figure construction. Might come back and colour her though.

    Ranma 1/2 ep14-16 The figure skating pair were funny, but I think three episodes was the right length for their appearance, any longer and they might have outstayed their welcome. I quite like the third ED animation as well (how are we on number 3 already?), the use of paper cutouts on a...

    Don't think I would re-watch the Island arc unless I particularly had to, but I would agree it's not a complete write off. There was a Thunderbirds gag in one episode I got a laugh out of, and the episode where Nadia and Jean visit a hidden temple (if I'm remembering that right) was fine. On...

    Chainsaw Man ep12 Going to hazard a guess that ending means a lot more if you’ve read the manga. On the whole, my thoughts are much the same as last week though; I enjoyed the series, I was impressed with the high quality of the animation, Denji and Power grew on me as protagonists, but I just...

    Lupin Zero ep1 Seen a few negative comments about this, but I quite liked it - the image downscaling is ugly, but the actual show is fine. I’m not sure the writing is necessarily that much better than Part VI, but it really benefits from being an ONA, I think - you can see the amount of time...

    Chainsaw Man ep11 On the whole, I’ve enjoyed the Chainsaw Man anime, but the pacing has been a constant source of frustration. I never was much of a shonen fighting show person, I suppose. Akiba Maid War ep12 [End] The ending was fine, I guess, although I don’t feel the place we ended up was...

    Gosenzosama Banbanzai (1989) Mamoru Oshii's esoteric and oddly personal postcard from the height of the economic bubble, is a tragi-comic satire following the breakdown of a middle-class family, whose lives are inextricably changed by the arrival of Maroko, a smiling young woman claiming to be...

    Akiba Maid War ep11 I just have something in my eye okay Gosenzosama Banbanzai ep6 [End] Perhaps not a complete surprise that even at its apparent end, any intended meaning in the story remains elusive, and it's very much down to the viewer to draw their own conclusions as to what it was all...

    Even more HK actioners. Angel Terminators (1992) Sharon Yeung Pan Pan and Kara Hui star as two detectives coming up against a sneering Japanese gang boss (Kenneth Tsang), following his return from exile in Thailand. The action is very strong here, with great set-pieces throughout (I was...
