Dated 23 August 2022: Isekai Ojisan is brilliant

Elf and Uncle
Oh my God. These two are so good.

It turns out Isekai Ojisan (Uncle from Another World) is a lot funnier than I would have expected of an isekai parody. Actually, I guess it's not really even necessarily a parody. It just happens to subvert expectations by tackling all the stereotypical tropes the wrong way. There have only been five episodes so far due to a Covid-related two-week delay after the fourth episode, but every installment has been solid.

Elf
I want to know how her armor does that.

I've only read a few chapters of the manga, but this anime adaptation is outstanding. In particular, Koyasu Takehito as the Sega-obsessed uncle and Haruka DeTomaso Pantera as the elf girl from the other world are perfect. The anime also has a somewhat crude appearance to it (as does the original manga) that fits well with the gags, and the comic timing is right on. Seeing as how there are eight volumes of the ongoing manga so far, I have to assume there's more to the series than just non-stop anecdotes of the uncle's isekai misadventures, but I'd honestly be okay with it either way.

Dated 10 April 2015: The most fucked-up moment of Shirobako

Sakaki
This one is only medium-fucked-up.

No, not this one.

THIS ONE:

SEGA DREAMCAST 4
I would pre-order one.

Granted, the show is not meant to be entirely realistic, but this is just dirty.

Dated 29 November 2011: The best product placement in Ben-to does not feature food

Sega Saturn
Waiting for the start of the era of hot-blooded Dreamcast nostalgia.

Truth be told, I almost dropped Ben-to after episode two, but soldiered on to figure out why Panty was in this show. It's stayed amusing longer than I thought it would, but possibly I'm biased because I'm a loyal Sega fan, and the Sega product placement has been relentless. Does is still count as product placement if nothing featured is current?
