What do you mean Gintama live-action isn’t silly?
It’s been awhile since an update–so let’s see what’s happened this week, what I missed, and some older but significant content to share.
Fullmetal Alchemist vs live-action
Well, I thought the footage of the live-action Fullmetal Alchemist shown at Anime Expo had some of the best animation for an anime adaptation, especially at that budget.
And I find it bothersome that a predominantly Japanese cast is a problem, even in a setting that is inspired by European culture, while whitewashing in Death Note (which you should not watch) and Ghost in the Shell is overlooked.
I mean…Just watch this.
Just for Fun
You can never have enough bishie Edgar Allan Poe-inspired content–although the lack of a raccoon is troubling.
Speaking of which, to review: we still don’t have a Bungo Stray Dogs dub, and a new mobile game is coming out.

Season 2 of the anime ends September 30.
Anime and manga reviews will return to this site soon, since I’ve been busy with…
And that makes me a hero. (Not, it does not.)
