This season… I’m going retro!!

Yeah baby yeah!

Figures. Since I don’t usually blog anime episode-for-episode, and only do reviews when some series is more or less complete, I can say I’m always one season behind the latest. Furthermore, since I have a backlog of reviews, it makes me even more behind! So, what better way to buck my lazy trend, than going all-out retro!?!

While I’ll still do the jiggy on the neato-latest winter 2005 anime I like, I think some nostalgia would be nice.

Wait, don’t think I’m gonna wipe the dust off “very old anime” spanning years and years ago. With the fast pace of anime, a season or two behind is already “retro”. So sit back, relax, and…

For your first retro anime review, I suggest Cutie Honey. Now that’s retro! Actually, I’m pretty behind on stuff too. I guess it has to do with not living in Japan and stuff…

Thanks for the suggestion, but dunno, didn’t like it. Even slept through Re: Cutie Honey halfway… weird me.

how bout maburaho? i think its quite ‘retro’. Dibs on being behind and all. I’m way behind stuff on the latest stuff.

I don’t think Maburaho really qualifies as a retro anime. Can I just quickly suggest the much slept on Idol Tenshi Youkoso Yoko; a shoujo anime from 1990, about a young wanna-be pop starlet from the backwoods of Japan, striking out on her own in the big city. It’s cute, but it has plenty of heart, and depth, and uhh lots of bright colors.
