After another hiatus, another double review. Apologies. As the winter season wrapped up, I found myself growing more disillusioned with this show and what could have been. Regardless, I am pushing through. Episode 10 brings us two tales of nightmarish visions come to pass. Episode 11 shows us contrasting stories about…
This week, an episode we’ve been wanting but were too afraid to hope for. Two tales of terror: a Tomie story and Junji Ito’s own twist on the vampire myth.
Comparing to the slapdash selection of stories of the first few episodes, episode 7 demonstrates that Junji Ito Collection may have finally hit its stride. These two segments have a clear theme in common that is not immediately apparent when separate. But, together, they strike at a real societal horror.
First, apologies to you few but faithful readers. Work stress and a broken modem prevented these two reviews, so I’m combining them into one post. A silly shocker and a gothic ghost story. A cursed object and a surreal town. Episodes 6 and 7 run the gamut of Ito stories.
This week’s episode gave us a little of Ito’s Lovecraft side and a little of his Burton side.
Trypophobia: the fear of irregular patterns of holes. Pupaphobia: the fear of puppets and marionettes. This week’s episode is all about those irrational but very real fears that we all have to some degree or another.
Teenagers do silly things, don’t they? They come up with rituals, spread rumors, and invent urban legends - all in the service of the hormone-soaked bottle of drama that is high school relationships.
Ever have one of those dreams where you have to pee and can’t find a bathroom? What if that dream lasted for years without relief? Ever meet someone where something just feels “off” about their appearance? What if that’s because they aren’t exactly human? It’s that kind of everyday horror that makes Junji Ito great.
The first episode of the Junji Ito Collection is out, and it’s kind of disappointing. The art and animation are fine. The problem is its choice of story.
Today I’m reviewing Muv-Luv, a visual novel developed by âge. On the surface, this game is a slice-of-life romantic comedy and it makes no excuses for itself. Under the hood though, this game is really something entirely different, and it’s very aware of this.
I had a hard time deciding whether or not to go ahead and do a rewatch entry for this week, in light of the Pulse massacre this weekend. But as Trigun is just as much about when and how to use or not use your gun, what to use it for and the harm it can do as much as it is about anything else, in the end, I decided to…
North America’s second largest anime convention, Anime North, was last weekend and over 30000 anime fans joined the fun. Among them were endless hordes of cosplayers showing off their efforts.

So it’s Monday and as we all know Monday is one of those days where we want nothing more than for it to not be Monday. So while you’re stuck at work or triyng to get through that first class of the day, why not kill time with your good friend Mr. PartyBusDriver and another Talk It Out.
This weekend is IzumiCon here in Oklahoma City. With the con so close it got me thinking about the past year in terms of conventions I’ve been to, and I thought it might be a fun topic for a Talk It Out. So what cons have you gone to this year, and/or what cons do you plan on attending?
