First Impressions: Tamayura ~ hitotose~

Say cheese~! Slice-of-life anime with 24 episodes are a dangerous thing. Most shows in the genre already struggle with holding up the audience’s attention for one seasonal run, so if a production company decides to go for a full two-co...

Summer 2011 Anime Guide (Part 1)

The summer season is often associated with subpar anime; one-cour stuffing made by lesser studios, but this summer season is one hell of an exception. I found at least 8 shows I’m interested in and of course, I’m obliged to tell you wha...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Aquagaze's Anime Weekend: The Emo Album

Don't be distracted by the A-Channel header, Steins;Gate is the best comedy of the season. Ignoring the question whether or not this is intentional, the larger-than-life antics of Okarin and his colleagues easily outshine the actual comedie...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Aquagaze's Anime Weekend: Second Episode Syndrome

The second episode of a new anime seems in many cases to be the hardest. Similar to how hotshot artists need to justify their often critically-acclaimed debut with a sophomore effort, it’s here that the writers must prove that the first e...

Aquagaze's Anime Weekend: Episode 29: Erraticism

Well, I shouldn't tell you this episode 'will be a bit shorter than usual'. In stead of making some insensitive joke about 'the damage not being as bad as expected', I will just have to say that I was pleasantly surprised to see the noitami...

 
 
 
 

Aquagaze's Anime Weekend: Episode 28: On A Roll

Aquagaze recommends: Boku Wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai

People who follow me on Twitter might now roll their eyes in irritation. Yup, here comes Aquagaze once again with that stupid manga of his he keeps on blabbing about. The problem is, you can’t get to decently know someone if you’re not ...

Aquagaze's Anime Weekend: Episode 16: Tokyo Vice

Japan is awesome: Manga Newspapers

From wired.com:"Japan is newspaper-crazy. Its biggest daily, Yomiuri Shimbun, has 10 times the circulation of The New York Times. For now, at least. Just as in the US, young people in Japan aren’t reading newspapers as often as their pare...

About Aquagazeone of us since 9:16 AM on 02.27.2010

Warning!

This blog contains copious amounts of Aquagaze. People with brains are advised not to interact with Aquagaze. This also applies to people without brains. See? He's very stupid. Even I want to punch him. And I'm just text!

Aquagaze loves anime. So much that he blogs about it all the goddamn time. That's why most people know him.

Aquagaze loves music. Don't ask him what kind of music, you've probably never heard of it.

Aquagaze loves games. In fact, he enjoys them so much he has never beaten one, just to salvage it.

Aquagaze loves Boku Wa Tomodachi Ga Sukunai, and he won't rest until you do so as well.
