WO Examines: Yuru Yuri San Hai

The girls are back, in yet another season of the funny stuff, and boy oh boy, does this show deliver the funny stuff. In keeping true to the other seasons of the show, Yuru Yuri San Hai manages to maintain the high level of humor and wit that made the previous seasons such a enormous blast to watch.

It isn't much of a secret that my favorite characters from the show are Kyoko and Sakurako... spiritual twins if ever there were two characters in a series that were.

If you haven't seen the previous seasons of Yuru Yuri it isn't a sin not to watch them, as the nature of the show lacks a clearly defined direction or plot, but if one wanted a full dose of the girls, and their individual antics, then I'd certainly recommend taking a weekend and getting familiar with Akari and her comrades.

The series began airing October 6, 2015 and wrapped that December. So far there hasn't been word on whether NIS America will pick it up for license distribution, but I've got my fi…

WatchMojo Hacked?

Apparently, no one is safe on the internet, not even the massive YouTube creator community. WatchMojo seems to have been hacked, and had their videos retitled, and the descriptions of their videos altered. Now the question is being raised, as to who is liable, and who should fix this.

Based on a conversation I had in one of my videos concerning Anthro, Furries, and MLP, I think it's only fair to say that Bunny Girls are off the table! As in they should just go ahead and get a free pass.

Anime Review | Anne Happy - Episode 01

One of the first things that comes to mind when I think of, slice of life is some of the more cemented examples in anime: Lucky Star, K-On, Yuri Yuri... just to name a few. And while I will admit that there is a certain point where they become the stuff of nostalgic legend, they also seemingly bleed into memorial retrospect.
Over the past couple of years, the well has been drawn on to the point where it seems as though the best shows have been tapped out, or are only living on as extended seasons.
Anne Happy, is a much different beast altogether. It's a slice of life anime that takes the stuff that we love about the genre and makes it seem fresh and exciting again. By that, I mean that it once again makes it okay to be a comedy.
Some shows are by their very nature, dramatic and melodramatic, and sometimes they hint at humor while keeping a darker more sinister undertone just below the surface; and then when the time is right, they hit the viewer with a heavy dose of reality, or some…

Anime DMCA and the Unfair Treatment of Fair Use

[ Insert Anime Picture Here ]
This article has been long in coming, for many reasons; most notable of which is the repeated abuse the anime community seems to be suffering at the hands of the very people whose products and services we promote and advocate for.
By that I mean that anime community members are suffering unfair issuances of copyright violation notices, and DMCAs to the point that it seems the companies we buy anime from, doesn't really want us to do anything but just buy it.
Apparently, what was once a healthy practice, and by my own definition a sort of free promotion and advertising for the anime companies, is now being targeted in routine sweeps for illegal activity, and as a result many individuals on social media sites, namely YouTube and Twitter are being hit with take-down notices and DMCA notices.
Before I dive too deep into this, let me back up and start at the beginning.
Last year in between the months of August and October, a sweep began across the internet by l…

[Review]: Fairy Tail Zero - Episode 02

It's time to take a look at the second episode of "Fairy Tail Zero." I hope you've all got your thinking caps on!

When the treasure hunters arrive on the island, looking for magical treasure, one of them is shocked to find a young girl. Unwilling to divulge the location of the treasure, Mavis agrees to a game. If she wins, the treasure hunters leave; if she loses, she has to reveal the location of the treasure. Let's hope all those years of book learning have paid off.

[Review]: Dagashi Kashi - The Watch List Review

How in the world can they possibly make a show about snacks? Well actually, it's easy enough, you just have to have to have some pretty passionate characters, and while "Dagashi Kashi" isn't the brightest bulb in the anime box, it's got passionate characters by the loads.

It's cute and funny, and even off the wall at times. And oh, did I mention that it was a show about snacks?
