    Berserk: The Golden Age Arc I - The Egg of the King

    ★★★½

    Oh, boy. This is gonna be a tough one.

    I love Berserk. I first discovered it about seven years ago, not long after I graduated from college. Not the best time to become a Berserk fan, for sure, considering Guts was still on the damn boat, but the power and pull of Miura's story was undeniable. It has lived rent-free in my mind ever since. Like many other fans of Berserk, I had always joked that Miura would probably die…

It also is kind of cozy like The Shining (I don’t know what is wrong with me).

One day, you notice a for sale sign on an empty lot. Another day you drive by and you notice they've laid the foundations. Another day, the walls are up, and another day there's a roof, a garage, and finally a…

    Cowboy Bebop: The Movie

    ★★★★

    Fact: Cowboy Bebop is the greatest show to have ever aired on television, animated or otherwise.

    Fact: this movie is two hours of Cowboy Bebop.

    Fact: this movie is two hours of the greatest show to have ever aired on television, animated or otherwise.

    Fact: this was bloody fucking awesome and it makes me miss this beautiful show even more than I already did.

    See you, space cowboy.
