Rockmandash Rambles: Sakurasou is the first Romantic Comedy I…

I made a post about a month ago about random romances I was watching, and I asked a few recommendations. I have been watching more Rom Coms like Ano Natsu de Matteru, Kokoro Connect, Date a Live, etc (which were all fantastic, but that's for another time). Due to the recommendations, I checked out The Pet Girl of… » 7/10/14 6:48pm 7/10/14 6:48pm

Kanojo ga Flag wo Oraretara: Rockmandash's Ani-TAY Review

Tropes, flags, lampshading, etc. If you are a genre savvy viewer, you have probably heard of all these terms before. They are concepts that fans use to describe certain phenomenon in shows, like how a character monologues endlessly for no end, ignoring everything that's happening, right before certain doom. It's the… » 7/02/14 4:00pm 7/02/14 4:00pm

Mekakucity Actors: Rockmandash's Ani-TAY Review

In the first AniTay Podcast Episode, I said I stopped picking shows to watch based on description because the execution could be bad and the show could be sub-par. I was hoping Mekaku City Actors would prove this wrong: A show that sounds awesome, and is executed very well. What could go wrong? It's a show done by… » 6/28/14 5:00pm 6/28/14 5:00pm

Nanana's Buried Treasure: Rockmandash's Ani-TAY Review

If you are an avid anime fan, there is always a show that interests you because of the short description you might hear. Unfortunately, people don't enjoy shows because of a concept, they do so because of execution. Today, we have Nanana's Buried Treasure, a show that's deceptively simple on a description but tries to… » 6/20/14 3:00pm 6/20/14 3:00pm

Palutina's Anime Entrence to SSB by Shaft

When Nintendo introduced Palutena from Kind Icarus to Smash Bros, They had an anime trailer of Link and Pit fighting, with obviously Palutina fighting. SmashBrosJP tweeted that the animation short was done by Shaft. I was not expecting that, considering how rough (in my opinion) it looked, and how Nintendo usually… » 6/11/14 10:53pm 6/11/14 10:53pm

Rockmandash Rambles: Where did variety in games go?

It's E3, the time of the year to get hyped about the awesome new games. It's the time of year where you watch press conferences of companies that you don't care for because everybody talks about them, and the time of year where the world gets to see the trends of the industry. Unfortunately the industry is going in a… » 6/10/14 10:44pm 6/10/14 10:44pm

Rockmandash Reviews: Bokurano: Ours [Anime]

This review exists for 2 reasons: 1. I needed something to fill the void that Muv-Luv left me (thanks Dex....), and 2. I'm an anime fan; As such, read and watch reviews of anime.

Rockmandash Rambles: Random Romances

With my schedule clearing up and I finally got started with my Key Marathon (don't expect a review from that for another 2 weeks though), I've been in the mood for a romance so I've been watching a ton of different and random romance series because re-treading water when it's relatively fresh in your head isn't the… » 6/08/14 8:33pm 6/08/14 8:33pm

Rockmandash Reviews: Muv Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse [Anime]

More Muv-Luv! I'm sure all of you here on TAY is absolutely sick and tired of me and Dex mentioning Muv-Luv pretty much every week and are probably prepared to make silly ANTI-MUV-LUV pictures to respond every time Muv-Luv is mentioned, but we just can't help but talk about this series. Today on Rockmandash Reviews,… » 6/04/14 6:10pm 6/04/14 6:10pm
