Tokyo Zombie Chainsaw Massacre

Let me guess, Kore wa Zombie Desu ka is in a post-midnight timeslot?

(Checks.)

Yup.

But then so is Kimi ni Todoke, and that show contains hardly any zombies at all.

Anime

Kimi Ni Todoke, Season 2 Episode 5

Sometimes you wonder why we crawled up out of the ocean, climbed up into the trees, climbed back down out of the trees, discovered fire, invented the wheel, the lever and the other one I always forget, fought wars, went to school, and work forty* hours each week for most of our lives.

Kimi ni Todoke is why.

The reason the Mayan calender stops next year is because Kimi ni Todoke is going to end, and then, the Universe, weary but satisfied, will fold back in on itself.  The world ends not with a bang but with a sigh of happiness.

In the go go beta couple category: Doesn't Chizu clean up nice?

In the war dispatches category: Die, blondie, die!

* For varying values of forty.

Anime

Off-Off-Off Model, Or, The Anticagliostro

This is billed as the worst animated car-chase scene of all time.  I won't argue.

Anime

Basquash

I missed this before, because (a) it sounds like exactly the sort of thing I don't care about and (b) I was dead in a ditch at the time.*

But instead it's (a) beautifully drawn and animated (well, the CGI is so-so as usual) and (b) bouncy.**

That's Miyuki, the wrench wench.  Apparently she's only medium bouncy as things go in the series, so there's good reason to keep watching.

Also contains ducks:

* Of the past 27 months since the startup I work at as my day job went into open beta, I've spent 15 frantically trying to dig my way back to daylight, 6 dead in a ditch, and 6 just normally insanely busy.  We finally have a full-time system administrator on the team, so things are set to improve this year.
