Spice and Wolf (Timekeeper)

Author: Timekeeper

Many many years ago, I stumbled upon this series while attempting to find a new series to watch. When I was told by many anonymous users, forum-goers, and various other individuals that it was the best thing since sliced bread, I decided to give it a watch. After watching the first and second season (the latter of which took Funimation a century to license), I'm a bit confused as to what my experience was. Why was this? Let's dive in.

Steins;Gate

Steins;Gate is a masterpiece. Anyone who says otherwise without giving you definitive proof of some kind of bad plot hole or character stretch is simply a hater. Don't try to reconcile with them, cause they don't deserve to enjoy what this anime has to offer.

I really can't describe the experience of watching Steins;Gate, you've just gotta do it. If you don't do it, you're missing out.

It's great. Time-travelling and shit, confusing things and shit, Moeka's sexy body and shit. What's not to like?

Sword Art Online

Okay, yes. I did say in a thread earlier beforehand that I was going to review Gankutsuou next, but to be perfectly honest, the show is taking more time to get to where it's going than a snail strapped to an anchor dragging it's way from one end of the Sahara to the next. So unless the show has a point it's trying to reach, which I really hope it does, I don't see how I can write a review in which I'm investing about as much time into as the US government is investing in anything but war.

The Sacred Blacksmith (Seiken no Blacksmith)

A long time ago in a forum thread not so far away, I submitted a piece for the JustDubs Review of the Month contest, a competition whose winner was curiously never decided. Undeterred however, I felt my review was somewhat rushed anyway and there was definitely room for improvement and expansion. Thus, many months of procrastination later I finally mustered up the motivation to rewrite it... while on a road trip when I had nothing better to do and was cut off from all outside communication.
