Temporary/semi-permanant hiatus

This blog started out as an experiment to see whether we could pull it off.  The original plan was to have 3-5 writers, each working on a couple shows, but for various reasons, things fell through with some people, and it turned into me alone trying to manage the whole thing, plus everything in real life.  Needless to say, it turned into way, way more work than I had ever expected, and I just don't have the time for it right now.  If/when my daily life returns to what used to be normal, or other people volunteer to run this thing, it'll start up again.  As it stands, it's just not possible.  There aren't enough hours in the day to do it.

So until further notice (could be weeks, could be months, could be never), the blog is going on hiatus.  I just can't manage it any more.

If you came here following the URL from one of the cards that we've been handing out, you can still check out our facebook page or send us an email at the address that's also probably on the card, or follow @TASS_Anime_Club on twitter.

Thanks for reading.

Catchup post #3: Inu X Boku SS 1-2

Shirakiin Ririchiyo, a near-textbook tsunshun (depressed after being tsuntsun), who has the unhealthy habit of constantly belittling everyone around her, moves into a super-elite apartment called the Maison de Ayakashi, where each tenant is assigned a SS, or secret service, agent to protect them.  However, neither the mansion or its residents are quite what they seem to be...
The author *really* wants you to know that she's not a tsundere.

Catchup post #2: Rinne no Lagrange 1-3

Kyouno Madoka is the incredibly capable and helpful president (and sole member) of the Jersey Club, whose purpose is to support anyone who needs help... and then gets dragged into the middle of a battle against aliens.

Catchup post #1: Senki Zesshou Symphogear 1-4.

Put simply, Symphogear is what you end up with when you throw Macross, Shinkyoku Soukai Polyphonica, and Xenosaga in a blender.  Girls in music-activated armor fighting monsters that kill humans by turning them into carbon dust.  And you know what?  It works.

Apologies for the long break in posts

I fully expect to start posting reviews again in the very near future.  Some circumstances in real life, however, have resulted in my having significantly less free time than before, so I might need to reconsider the long, detailed posts in favor of shorter reviews.  I'll be playing with posting formats a bit, seeing what I can get out in a reasonable period of time, and maybe covering a few more shows to make up for it.

I can, however, say that Gundam AGE and Guilty Crown will not be covered episodically. The trainwrecks are a little too much at this point...

Guilty Crown - 12

It really feels like a rushed season finale, with the writers rushing through enough material for 2-3 episodes.  Of course, as is usual for Guilty Crown, the story went jumping all over the place.
Starting with the boss dungeon (really a void) forming.

Naruto Chapter 570 (Spoilers)

Oh. My. GOD. Kurama is such a freaking tsundere.

We're kind of surprised (and amused) too.
