I swear I start every one of these lamenting my seeming inability to write more often, maybe I’ll actually do something about that some day.
Well that certainly was a season of shorts. As is so often the case I feel like last season’s batch can best be described as hit or miss. Some of them were really great, and some fell flat for me at least. With that said let’s just dive right into the roundup. Continue reading “Spring 2018 Shorts Roundup”
This is actually being written in a somewhat timely manner for once? Wonders never cease.
Sadly this season was pretty thin on the ground in the shorts sphere, there weren’t that many to start with, and only four actually got picked up for streaming. But on the plus side they were fairly consistently decent, and in some cases pretty great, so it could be far worse. Continue reading “Winter 2018 Shorts Roundup”
What do you mean we’re halfway through Winter already? I guess I should stop procrastinating then. With that in mind let’s get to Fall’s batch of shorts. Continue reading “Fall 2017 Shorts Roundup”

Well, this is more than a month later than planned due to persistent internet issues, but let’s get to it anyway. This season’s shorts were kind of a mixed bag without any major high points and a couple of real lows, but there was some good stuff around regardless. Continue reading “Spring 2017 Shorts Roundup”
Time to talk about one of my favourite shorts ever. Making that kind of declaration about a series literally made in MikuMikuDance about a group of characters standing in the same place failing to make jokes for 11 episodes may seem odd, but it’s true.
Note: It’s more or less impossible to explain just how well made Straight Title Robot Anime actually is without giving away the punchline, so by necessity I’ll be spoiling the ending here. I’d highly recommend watching the show first, even if it doesn’t look like anything special. Continue reading “Straight Title Robot Anime: Laughing Till The End”
