Time Travel is Bad for Your Skin

You can’t have your cake and eat it too. That is because… THE CAKE IS A LIE!!!!

Demonbane Episode 01

It’s Shanatan!

All right, it looks like we’re back on track with good anime that’s worth watching. Hopefully.

Is that a diaper?

It’s an Eva! IT’S SO TOTALLY AN EVA!!!

Demonbane Episode 06

I liked this anime so much at first. Unfortunately, the plot might as well not exist, as the whole show is pretty much an excuse to display (awesome) giant mechas and use random cool-sounding terminology from the Cthulhu Mythos. I do really like the H. P. Lovecraft references, and the art is quite enjoyable, but I wish this series was 26 episodes or longer, so the scriptwriters could have enough time to add in most of the plot they presumably left out from the game. Oftentimes, between one episode and the next, a few months of less important plot points are skipped over.

I believe this anime would have made a good long-running shounen series. It’s just too bad that it turned out to be this kind of 3D-graphic-artist bragging-rights anime.

Kanokon Episode 04

Can I suicide myself in a puddle yet? Can I?

As a side note, I think I’m getting to like the intro.

Demonbane Episode 07

The twelve-episode anime series Demonbane: otherwise known as 12 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Fall in Love with a Book. I like my creative name better than the original.

Demonbane Episode 08

Rhetorical question of the day. Can books die?

Demonbane Episode 09

I can’t help but believe that all this great animation is wasted on this plot… or lack thereof.

Demonbane Episode 11

The staff for this anime must have consisted of 500 world-class artists and animators… and one pea-brained H. P. Lovecraft-obsessed scriptwriter.

I worship the character design, 3D animation, and voice acting. However… what kind of a lame script is this. That single scriptwriter must have been drunk on top of his mental retardation. Do Japanese get Down syndrome?

Even an H. P. Lovecraft enthusiast would commit seppuku after watching this anime, I think.

I have reason to believe that all the characters in this anime are on crack.


This summarizes the entire anime.


Demonbane Episode 12 FINAL

I won’t comment about the cheesy “I love you” scene. It’s funny how epic the graphics are, and how lame the script is. It strikes horror into my fragile heart.

Hm, but at least the ending is meaningful, unlike most anime endings. I’ll admit that I liked the princess best, but all that pairing got was one cheap kiss.

Demonbane THE OVA

Why is this OVA ten times better than the 12-episode anime. I guess they switched out the drunk-scriptwriter-who-was-on-crack for a real scriptwriter.

“It’s show time!” <– reminds me of that guy from Digimon Savers.

THIS IS SO MUCH BETTER THAN THE ANIME. Dammit. They need to remake Demonbane like this. Lemuria Impact is also much less lame (although it’s still epicly overpowered).
