Liar Game got Solved! – 12 Days of Anime Christmas Day 10

The ending of Liar Game might not be great however I'm glad the game ended like this. Essentially in the last game they reduce themselves to a stalemate where neither side can win.

Misaki – 12 Days of Anime Christmas Day 9

One of the anime's I watched this year was Welcome to the NHK which is actually a really great show.

“I’ve got a Confession to Make” – 12 Days of Anime Christmas Day 7

"Confessions" is a manga written by Fukumoto Noboyuki but drawn by another person who draws with a different art style. Fukumoto's art style is iconic and excellent however I can only assume that it was to create a different tone that he switched artist. Which to be honest was a good choice. Confessions opens with … Continue reading “I’ve got a Confession to Make” – 12 Days of Anime Christmas Day 7

One Hell of a Moon Mission – 12 Days of Anime Christmas Day 5

Netflix’s Castlevania ep 1 – When’s Simon Belmont going to show up?

So yesterday I talked about the idea of getting a new 2D Berserk anime made by the guys who created this castlevania anime.

Why Talking About Halloween Spooky Scary Bullshit is Important to Me

A lot of people sigh at things like I'm doing such as only talking about horror for a whole month of the year, it means 1/12 of my months are horror related when there are so many other genre's to dedicate a month to. For example I've hardly seen any mecha (though Evangelion might count … Continue reading Why Talking About Halloween Spooky Scary Bullshit is Important to Me

How A Simple Game Can Be Made So Tense and Terrifying In Anime and Manga – Musical Chairs (Liar Game)

In a lot of my favorite manga there is often a game involved which the protagonist will play against villains, and it would surprise you just how often these games come from simple origins.

That's right I' m back with reviewing Liar Game arcs!

I feel like I've not watched any anime at all this month, and that's basically true, the only anime I finished this month was Saiki season 2 (which I covered last month but hadn't seen the final three episodes) and that means that every single anime on this list is a movie!

Laytons Mystery Journey ep 1 – The Haunted House Case

There is no English name listed for this show on my anime list but the Japanese title (Layton Mystery Tanteisha: Katri no Nazotoki File) roughly translates to "Layton Detective Agency - Katrielle's Mystery Files" but I don't like that so much so Laytons Mystery Journey it is!
