New Game!

A fun, interesting, cute, and surprisingly substantial sitcom about character design and game development. Between Harbour's art and my programming, this was very relatable. Almost painfully so.

A Certain Magical Index II

A remarkably dull sequel that progresses slowly with various non-sequitur arcs. When not in a monotonous fight scene, it's the same tired “jokes” of accidentally seeing a girl changing or naked, over and over again.

The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya

This is the best anime movie from a TV series that I've seen. KyoAni's love for their craft is strongly felt here in a beautiful and emotional piece. All the good of Haruhi improved while trimming all eye-roll moments.

A Whisker Away

A family-friendly Disney/Ghibli vibe that's fun enough, though definitely has "for kids" goofiness in it, but goes a bit deeper emotionally than typical non-Pixar family movies.

A Certain Scientific Railgun

A Certain Scientific Railgun is a much better counterpart to Magical Index that feels like an intriguing cop show set in an X-Men-like universe. It’s still got a lot of anime pervery sins though.
