Overlooked and Underrated: Dallos

June 21, 2012

OVAs are awesome. Generally higher budget and less rushed than TV series, and not limited so much by censorship either – what’s not to like about that? 😛 There have been many times in the past when I’ve gone on binges, watching nothing but oneshots and short OVA series for days.

I soon noticed that the vast majority of those I’d watched were made in the late 80s – early 90s… which got me wondering, what was the first anime OVA to be made? After some research, I found out it was Dallos.

Overlooked: Ray the Animation

May 16, 2012

When I promise to post something within a certain time frame, it usually gets delayed. When I promise delays, I find myself with so much free time that I’m fully up to date and don’t have anything to post. Funny, isn’t it? Anyways, I decided to use this time to promote Ray the Animation, a short series which… isn’t even that great (you’ll notice I’ve left ‘underrated’ out of the title :razz:). Still, it was very fun to watch, if mostly for the wrong reasons…

Overlooked & Underrated: Fantastic Children

April 27, 2012

I finally burnt out after posting for eleven days in a row, a shame as I’d hoped to catch up with Shining Bread before the third episode came out. 😛 With this post, I break the posting record I set during my first full month blogging (February 2010), back when it didn’t even focus on anime!

Time to dig up another series that I believe more people should see! This time, it’s Fantastic Children.

Overlooked: Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou

March 9, 2012

Time for a break from promoting lesser known comedy series I think, since about all I can say to try and convince people to give them a go is that they’re funny! The plan was to dig up something with a strong plot that would more or less sell itself… instead, I somehow ended up writing about Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou. This one will be a challenge.

Overlooked & Underrated: Hime-sama Goyoujin

February 29, 2012

The anime I’m posting about today is another comedy show. I realize comedy is very subjective – something that I find hilarious might be completely lost on another person, and vice-versa. However, going by its low rating on Anime-Planet, I’m one of few people from an already small number that both watched and liked Hime-sama Goyoujin.

Overlooked & Underrated: Don Dracula

February 4, 2012

Delving deeper into the world of obscure anime, we find Don Dracula! Unlike the last couple of shows I looked at, this is nice and short at just 8 episodes long. 🙂

Overlooked: Kemono no Souja Erin

January 12, 2012

Alright then, time to push a second anime series that I think deserves more love onto anybody who’ll listen. And don’t worry, I believe this one should have wider appeal than Creamy Mami, even if its woefully low A-P view count would suggest otherwise. I’m talking about Kemono no Souja Erin, a fairly recent addition to my Top 50 anime list.
