    It does things really well, and other things it takes a wet crap on.


    Until then, you are dead to me.

    Probably the worst combination of CG, writing, and sound I've seen before.
    Best girl that just wanted to cultivate her forests.

    Rating: 1/5 for effort
    Experience: 3/5
    The whole time it kept reminding me of really old games when we had just bought a computer. If only this was an intentional nod to game CG, I would have loved it.

    Spectral Force (Dub)

    I think what stood out to me watching this was the horrible CGI for the background, with cel animation characters slapped on top of it. I couldn't get past it the whole time. The backgrounds are dull, while the cels are brightly coloured as if someone turned the contrast controls up. Lighting doesn't match up a lot of time, mostly with darker scenes. I also noticed the characters had a lot perspective issues making them look like paper cut outs at times.

    Background track mostly comprised of cheap synth when there is actual background music, at times it feels like its missing something. Dub was about right for around the time, wasn't terrible, but not great. However with how certain lines were delivered it made it funnier. Like when Chick, the guy with super bright orange hair was shooting like an old GTA NPC.

    Plot was eh. Maybe I could have gotten more out this if knew more of the video game source material.

    Sound 2
    Animation 2.5
    Plot 2

    Nicolas Cage showed up though. So that's something.

    The dub was good for 80s/90s dub standards for OVAs, the music was aight, some fine honeys and fine ass elves, Nicolas Cage, and that's about it. Everything else sucked major ass.

    Tabidachi: Ami Shuushou
    English: Cream Lemon: Ami's Journey

    Ami was setup to be very vulnerable giving her circumstances... her life falling apart, crashing down around her.

    This was too good for DTAB. Now I have to check out the rest of the Cream Lemon franchise.

    Not sure about the title...there wasn't really much laughing...

    Fell asleep last night right after seeing the notification for DTAB. But I watched it later in the morning for the sake of the anime bingo anyway. I think it was kinda good enough to almost not be in DTAB (Or maybe my tolerance for bad anime has increased due to DTAB xd).

    Tokyo Revelation

    Dumbledore, Lancer, Yusuke, and Loli girl. Not enough fanservice.

    I saw this before, but I don't remember it.

    Oxford shamed out of existence after American experts laugh at them for not knowing revenge is a verb.

    Big Wars
    Alt title: Big Wars: Kami utsu akaki kouya ni

    I've seen this before... what was it about? A big war?... I don't really think so...

    In case you missed the too-fast infodump at the start...
    Everyone else missed it too. Don't sweat it. It couldn't have been that important.

    Lots of explosions... among other things.

    2.0/5, watchable

    Legend of Lemnear

    Music was god-tier 80s goodness, had lots of titties, hot female lead, kickass music and got so hilariously dumb in the last 20 minutes. But everything else sucked eggs.

    4/10ish, music was that gangsta.

    Itsudatte My Santa!

    Rush pacing... pretty depressing story actually.
    The girl is dumb and loud though...

    Then a beach episode with a loli eating a whole farm's worth of watermelon.

    1.5 ho ho ho's out of 5.
