I'm the simulcast writer, and write the Otaku Theater column. I also occasionally write other little things here. It all started at age 12, with Sailor Moon. My tastes changed over time to fantasy shows and slice-of-life. I do understand that there are other things in life, though. For me, it's Overwatch, Splatoon and Formula 1. As the only Brit in OASG, I am probably the most cynical, although that is questionable.

I'm not drinking ever again... …or so I wish. Eurovision did rock on May 13th, though. It’s the one thing some Europeans, like us, British, love with all our hearts, regardless of how ridiculous it can get. Well anyway, after a hangover,...

My shows are getting better and better, thanks. Even Sakura Quest is starting to pick up, even though it’s now firmly in the ‘filler episode’ stage. This week, the Manoyama tourist board decide to shoot a promotional movie....

Rest in peace, Nyaa. So…Nyaa Torrents got shut down right underneath our noses. Just in time for the news by Crunchyroll and Amazon Prime that it’ll be offering offline streaming sometime this year (read more about the news here)....

Bit of a mixed bag this week. Anime Expo just announced some big names. I’ve decided not to go though, as I can’t afford both AX and Dragoncon (which has become a nearly-annual pilgrimage to me now). Meanwhile, I’m still recovering...

Neomo concludes his SAO project, by watching the movie. Finally, this Sword Art Online torture is over for me…okay, so it wasn’t all torture. I’m sure a third season will come along or something. Anyway, Ordinal Scale. I was...

Neomo comes back from watching season 1 to watch season 2, before he goes to see Ordinal Scale. A quick reminder. Sword Art Online has been around for ages, and yet this is the first time I’m seeing all of it. So what did I think of season...

A first for this column. Us OASG folk communicate with each other (sometimes), and it seems that this opinion was pretty much universal: Well you got me there…but it’s not like I’m mad or bitter. Come on, I always choose a...

My obligatory bad show has arrived. No it’s not Sword Art Online, not yet, if you didn’t read my post, I wasn’t initially impressed by it like the rest of the weeb population was. I still wonder what Ordinal Scale will be like...

Neomo takes the time to catch the show for the first time before the movie is out in his homeland. Now, there’s one thing I’d like to make clear before I carry on: I have never ever seen Sword Art Online. I don’t know any of...

Happy...umm...April? The Winter season kind of ended quietly, I thought. The Fall season was a different story; big shows like Hibike! Euphonium 2, Flip Flappers, along with that other show Crunchyroll wouldn’t shut up about, took over...
