It’s that time of the year again. It’s time to once again to pick and choose our favorites of the year.

Explosions, car bombings, 9/11 references, falsifying deaths, and impersonations all in the span of just the last two episodes. Un-Go kept me going until the final second, and I must say I very pleased with the ending of this show.
After a long wait, I finally got my hands on my Toradora BD set. It was worth every minute and every cent. I could rant all day about seeing my favorite romance anime in delicious high definition. But the OVA is what I’m writing this post for, and a Toradorable OVA it is.
One of this season’s gems, Un-Go is a fantastic mystery piece. Set in a post-war world, two detectives both uncover the truth, but Shinjuro Yuki’s findings are often covered up by the chairman Rinroku Kaishou, and as a result gains the title “the Defeated Detective.” Helping Yuki in his cases is a supernatural shapeshifting being named Inga, who forces people to answer any one question of her choosing in exchange for their soul. In the latest chapters, the story takes a much welcomed twist.
With only a few weeks left of the fall season, I think it’s about time to break out the charts and start making plans for the winter shows. It continues to be a running joke that I try to at least give every series a shot. Desu watches everything after all.
Welcome to Desu’s Maid Mansion! In addition to serving tea and cakes, and having a lovely maid staff, I shall be posting various anime-related news and series/episode summaries of the anime I watch.

For those of you who don’t, this may serve to be a refresher. Read the rest of this entry
