I spent this week getting the Genki Christmas season reviews underway in the build-up to my films and anime of the year! First I actually had to make the announcement of my Genki Christmas season before starting with a first-impression and dismissal of the anime Log Horizon. I followed that up with a review for Sake-Bomb on Wednesday and an interview with the director on Thursday and the first of the trailer posts (two posts a week from now on) on Friday. I also finished my Winter 2014 Anime preview for Anime UK News so that’s live (visit there to see more) and I’ll follow it up with a post about my picks from the next season some time during next week. I’ll also post info for Gigan magazine tomorrow. Gigan covers Japanese indie-films so you can find out more about it there!
Also here’s a link to a review of Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s latest film The Seventh Code. I haven’t mentioned it yet but it has started winning awards at film festivals around the world! Kurosawa comes back from the supposed debacle that was Real!
The trailers start off pretty steamy so turn the volume down and the screen away from those pretty easily offended.
