Queen’s Blade: Rebellion Review

1508027_694532077277304_6353563621166322464_n

When I was picking up the DVD of the next series for me to review I was given two choices. “Do you prefer tits or comedy” my fellow reviewer said. Well since comedy is subjective and humour can be lost when viewed by other cultures, and since in a way I do prefer tits, I chose this. And I think he summed up Queens Blade perfectly. “Tits”. Well to be fair there is more to it than that; there’s a large cast of characters, lore, tits, a consistently unravelling story, and tits. Did I mention tits? Pretty sure I did. “Tits”. About that story. Queen’s Blade: Rebellion is a sequel to the original Queen’s Blade, the set up for the first … Continue reading

mma5387br

If you’ve managed to not have the entirety of Attack on Titan spoiled for you by the moderately zealous fandom, parody videos, GIFs, or reviews that came out while the show was airing; first I would like to say “how are you enjoying your first day on the internet?” and secondly I’d like to inform you that I will not be avoiding spoiling the first half of Attack on Titan because, dude, everyone else has seen it. Don’t come whining to me about how I ruined that Eren gets eaten 5 episodes in just because YOU didn’t bother watching streams each week. Also, I’m not going to refer to this show as SNK in this review, because when I say … Continue reading
