Another poll closed!

February 17, 2019

Many thanks to everyone who voted in last week’s series poll! 😀 Nice to see that each series got at least one vote, but the winner with three is Brain Powerd!


Here’s hoping for some great sci-fi/mech action, nice character designs, decent character personalities, and a vaguely coherent plot? 😛 I’ll make a start on it today~

We have a winner!

July 14, 2018

Many thanks to everyone who voted in my second series poll of the year~ It was interesting watching the positions changing over the last fortnight, as the two series that started off in the lead ended up in last place, while the series that initially brought up the rear ended up winning. That series was Kyouryuu Tankentai Born Free!


As before, I’ll hold back any real comments until I’ve watched and reviewed it, but I will say that I’m looking forward to seeing 2D anime and stop motion / practical effects combined. Should be quite the experience, regardless of how good or bad the plot ends up being. 😀

Poll Closed~

January 29, 2018

Many thanks to everyone who voted to decide my next anime series – it looked VERY close for a while, and I was predicting another tie, but in the end Mahou no Stage Fancy Lala won outright by a couple of points!


I won’t comment on the series in detail until I’ve finished it and posted my review here, but I did watch the first five episodes during a train journey yesterday, and I’d say it is off to a good start. 🙂

Pretear, Koi Kaze & Kanon – My Thoughts

July 26, 2012

Nope, I’m not quite dead yet. 😛

At the end of May I posted a poll asking readers to choose which series (out of a shortlist of six) I should watch next. When the poll ended with two shows tied for first place, and a third series close behind, I decided I’d watch all three. Well, it took the best part of two months, but as I finished Kanon a few days ago, I thought I’d share my thoughts on them all. 🙂

Poll Closed – Thanks for Voting!

June 14, 2012

The poll to decide which series I’d end up watching next has now closed… with no clear winner. At the end of the first day of voting, all six were tied for first with one vote, which was a little worrying! That didn’t last long though, as two series started to pull away from the rest of the group. They were neck-in-neck for virtually the whole fortnight, and were still tied at the end. They are Pretear and Koi Kaze.

Yay! It’s May!

May 5, 2010

Yesterday, I went volunteering. I pulled up grass. Woo!

Thanks to everyone who voted in my poll, it is now closed. And has been for a few days, but I couldn’t be bothered posting. As you could see if you scrolled down a bit, Marimite won over Junjou, barely. And I finished getting hold of it earlier. Chances are I’ll come back to the latter series in the future though, if only for the lulz.

Aberystwyth anime society is having their annual barbecue in just over a week (weather dependent), so hopefully that will give me something to post about.
