Mawaru Penguindrum Review (Secret Santa)


I have wanted to watch Mawaru Penguindrum for a long time, basically since it was originally airing. Unfortunately, it has been one of the few shows in recent years that never got a simulcast release and that eventually just all came out when Sentai Filmworks licensed it for physical release. It may have been simply that it wasn’t the “new” thing anymore when this happened, but I never did end up going out of my way to marathon it on Hulu or to get the Blu-rays . When it ended up being one of my choices for Secret Santa this year I was rather happy that I would finally get the chance to watch it.



The Future Diary Review (Secret Santa)


Wow! Has it been an entire year since I have posted my first review? Yep….And for the same Secret Santa project? Yep….. But I really do like this project, and I am happy to be a part of it again, this year getting another show that I probably would not have had myself ever complete on my own accord.

This year I received the title The Future Diary. The premise of the show is quite simple. It is basically a last-man-standing type plot, with 12 people chosen by “God” who have all received the power to see the future through their various “diaries” that they keep, be it a cellphone diary or one kept on a scroll.  With these diaries though, they must fight until only one participant is left, with this individual taking over and becoming the new God.


THE IDOLM@STER Review (Secret Santa)


This is a review of the 2011 anime series THE IDOLM@STER for the Reverse Thieves’ 2012 Secret Santa. Basically, participants all received a list of three shows from another, anonymous participant and must watch one of these three shows completely. Though it isn’t really the show I would normally go for, and I am not sure if it was recommended with the intention of suffering either, from my choices I choose THE IDOLM@STER. This means that this review is not just my first Secret Santa, but also my first ever review on this blog. (more…)
