Your belated anime opinions go back a little further to fathom the finale of Flip Flappers before going off the beaten track to such strange locales as Oscar hopeful The Red Turtle and weirdo-ridden superhero show Space Sentai Kyuranger. And we still have time to get around to all your usual mystery solving chipmunks, bad historical fanfic and masked wrestlers as well! It's a bonanza!

While you may not agree with the tenets of a corporate holiday just remember that even robots have the capacity to love, as demonstrated in Romie-0 and Julie-8!
Nelvana are probably best known for their oddball seasonal specials, so jumping off from that this adaptation of Shakespeare's ubiquitous play is a good fit for the supposed most romantic day in the calendar, right? The sweeping tale of young love, family feuds and tragic ends is compressed down into a family friendly half hour, workmanlike but nonetheless energetic, though it does raise some alarming questions about the far future society it depicts. Robot rights, sleazy spacemen and other animated versions of the Bard's work are just some of the topics of discussion we expend more thought on than expected!

Where are all the sweets gone? Are fried mandarins actually good for you? And is this is a grim portent of things to come?

Sure hope y'all like earth puns because they're coming down like a ton of bricks in Avatar: The Last Airbender Season 2!

While discussion in recent times has shifted to this show's more uneven successor (which we ourselves are guilty of AT LENGTH) it's worth revisiting the roots of the Avatar franchise and discovering anew what carved out its special place in our hearts. The second chapter builds upon an already impressively strong foundation and expands the scope greatly in terms of character, action and wit but without sacrificing the intimate relationships we've come to cherish. Tears are shed, villains are victorious, and it'll be a desperate struggle to restrain ourselves from diving into the last season again too soon!

Time to grow up and be more serious about our frivolous Japanese cartoons! I'm talking about going out and finding a job, moving out of your family's castle, putting on a suit to attend a conspiracy-laden royal function and overcoming your mid-life crisis. It's all happening so fast!
Class is in session as we get thoroughly schooled on the real Galileo, test the boundaries of student/teacher interaction and try to get popular by starting a band. And I hope you were paying attention to ACCA as it'll feature heavily on the end of term exams!
