    Kuromukuro

    It’s been awhile since I’ve sat down and watched a good mecha, so when Kuromukuro popped up on Netflix,  I thought why not? Produced by P.A. Works, the studio behind Another and Angel Beats! with Tensai Okamura, director Wolf’s Rain and Blue Exorcist, there is decent enough pedigree involved to inspire some hope going in. And the first episode start’s with such hope and promise, opening with mechs fighting in the snow in the Sengoku period, and dead samurai littering the ground. It makes you think, “What the crap is going on? I don’t care…this is cool!” The pacing takes a bit of a turn though as the title card…

    Five Centimetres per Second

    Five Centimetres per Second is an anime written, produced and directed by Makoto Shinkai, which follows a few key characters through three short episodes on a journey through life. The total runtime of all three episodes is around an hour, though when I watched it, it felt longer. This isn’t a fault in the story telling, more that the scenes are not fast paced or hectic, but take their time to tell you what they need. The story spans from the start of the 1990’s till around 2008, which was present day at the time of release. Each episode is centred around Takaki Tōno, and the first of which starting…

    Smore sir?

    It was some time age that my wife to be presented me with a picture, that at first glance, looked as though her church group were all sniffing cocaine of their hands. I responded with such reasoning of, “I know you don’t do drugs…but..what?” I wish I had this picture to hand, it was a funny picture, especially when explained that they were all eating Smores, and that they were just that messy, but that good. So, when it came to the first time that we hosted a 4th July at our house in the UK, she was super excited to show us limey buggers what exactly a Smore is,…

    Toko-Retreat Competition Winners

    So, Tokonatsu for another year is over, it is likely we are all done with our travel, and are now settling into normal life (or as close to) once again. Though we had fewer attendees this year due to aliens abducting over 100 of them, I think I can speak for most of us when I say this was one of the best Toko’s yet. For us at Toko-Retreat, this was largely due to the amazing response we had to the events we hosted. A big thank you to Myst and the Committee for the massive amounts of support given to us, and for asking us to be a bigger…
