Asatte no Houkou anime

4 06 2010

Oh dear, no new posts in ages!!  This is Laserwolf, making a post!  Just what have I been doing?  Well, I have read the whole manga series of Fullmetal Alchemist, 24 volumes in Japanese, since my last post, but since the manga is almost over (might as well finish it before making a post) and since Segue already has a post on that series (albeit the anime rather than the manga) I decided to wait until I had something different to talk about.

Yakitate!! Japan anime

12 03 2010

Greetings from Laserwolf! And my sincerest apologies.  The site has not been updated for a long time.  I would like to say that will change but I cannot guarantee that I will be able to post more frequently in the near future, nor can I vouch for my counterparts.  Let’s just say we’ll do our best.

I am here to tell you about an anime which captured my heart and made me laugh more than any other series.  Not only that, it made me very hungry.

Pandora Hearts (manga and anime)

Summer Wars

4 12 2009

A summer net-thriller movie whose most intriguing character is a 90-year-old woman who’s idea of ‘high-tech’ is a rotary phone.

Panda Masamune here bringing you our first movie review.  I came across Summer Wars through a review on Anime News Network and was intrigued by all of the good things that the reviewer said about it.  So I picked up a copy and watched it, and I have to say that it deserves every good review that it gets.  It is a social commentary packaged as a blockbuster, and it illustrates clearly how people who normally wouldn’t get along can combine their gifts to accomplish a lot when the time calls for it.

“Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood” Season 1

4 11 2009
Edward and Alphonse Elric are alchemists…
Edward and Alphonse Elric are geniuses…
Edward and Alphonse Elric are brothers…
Oh, and Edward and Alphonse Elric are sinners.

Good Evening!  This is Panda Masamune here, bringing you the first of many reviews on this site.  As it says in the “about” page and the byline, we at Segue want to “build bridges between nerd-dom and real life.”  (That’s a fancy way of saying that all three of the writers on this blog like our hobbies, but we think that our hobbies shouldn’t just be about entertaining ourselves; they should leave us as better people in the end.)  So it’s only fitting that our first post be about Fullmetal Alchemist–the series that gave me this idea in the first place.

Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood
