Conglomerated Commercial Video

We used to do YouTube commercials. This is the first part of the collection, posted because they're pretty amusing in the opinion of me, Bobcat, the one who made them. Totally not biased. Nope. Not at all.

Gravitation Review

In this episode, Bobcat and Burkion tackle a shounen ai show. Gravitation is the story of two young men trying to make it in the cutthroat world of J-Pop, and the budding (?) romance between one of the band members and an emotionally distant and abusive novelist. Did this series draw us in, or did it plummet to Earth at a rate of 9.8 meters per second squared?

Tales From Earthsea Review

Oh boy! A studio Ghibli movie based on the famous and beloved Earthsea fantasy series. Is this meeting of two great things like chocolate and peanut butter, or chocolate with battery acid?
... well, the fact that it got a mere 46% on Rotten Tomatoes and won two Japanese Raspberry Awards for Worst Director and Worst Movie should give you some idea. How did such a great combination go so wrong? Watch to find out!

Tales From Earthsea Review Announcement

Now that we've actually watched it and the capricious schedule of Netflix can't stop our review, we're proud to announce that our next review (which should be up sometime tomorrow) is of the studio Ghibli film "Tales From Earthsea."  Hopefully we'll be able to get to Ponyo at some point in the future. 

Remember, if there's a series you'd like us to review, you can comment below or email us at

Heat Guy J Review

Hi everyone.  After nearly a month (I can't believe it was that long), Burkion and I return with our review of Heat Guy J, from the creator of The Vision of Escaflowne. Did we like it, or were we left cold?

Also, a quick update on the schedule.  Although we said at the end of the video that our next review would be Ponyo, Netflix took it down from its streaming list.  Don't worry, we'll find something else to review from Studio Ghibli (I'd say what it was, but I don't want to jinx us; this is the second time that something I'd been working on was torpedoed because Netflix picked the wrong week to take something down).

Good News Everyone!

My laptop is back!  You should see some more life around here soon.

A Quick Explanation

As you may have noticed, we didn't update for Christmas, Boxing Day or New Years.  This is because I (Bobcat) had some technical problems.  The hard drive for my laptop died at 12:15 on Christmas Night (thus ruining Boxing Day, but not Christmas).  It's currently over at Dell (hooray for warranties), and new episode production is stalled until it comes back, which will hopefully be soon.  Sorry for the delays and I hope everyone had a good holiday season.
