Feedback Time

Sup guys.
How's your spring been? (but it's summer not spring!) Not in the anime world! Summer doesn't start till the first show of summer season starts (which is the end of june).  So while we wait for summer to start, let's have a chat about what you people want to see.

I'm constantly trying to brainstorm new idea's for what to do to make you people love me. However, it's very easy to come up with ideas and hard to actually execute them all. So I'm letting the people decide what they want to see from me.

(Please note that some of these I do already but what feedback on)

Hype Lists: I let you know what stuff I'm excited for in the future
Episode Reviews: I follow a anime throughout a season and talk about it every new episode
Theme Song Review: I talk about and rate my favorite theme songs of the season
Older Anime Review: For the stuff that's not currently airing
State of the Industry: I'll let you guys know if anything happens in Japan that effects the anime Industry
Crossovers with Manly Manga: The two departments discuss a work together

I also would love to hear ideas from you guys so please comment for me so I can see what you want.

Rozen Maiden

“The dolls were an attitude. If nothing else they were a great attitude.”
J. Thunders
To be honest I really didn’t like Rozen Maiden until some action started. I was bored until I finally learned why the doll was even there. Well anyway the main character to our story, Shinku, is a Rozen Maiden and a doll with an attitude.
Yep, this is totally a doll.
The plot was definitely slow taking as long as forty chapters to introduce the seven Rozen Maidens. A Rozen Maiden is a doll made by Father Rozen, who is never seen, they participate in what is known as The Alice Game. In which are these seven dolls that try to kill each other to become the perfect girl. They don’t have energy to do this so they make a contract with a human for help. Jun Sakurada is a traumatized boy who becomes... traumatized when girls say he was good at designing clothes but the boys in his class make fun of him. He buys Shinku through an online shopping site (is it eBay?) and she instantly appears in seconds.
This is where your dog went on "vacation".
While the action takes some time to start up, the art starts to drag you in. This author is even known for this type of art.
Living dolls ready to kill... Yay!
As I said they take a long time to introduce the characters, so what do they use to attract even more interest? Comedy! This whole entire manga practically reeks of this and I’m not even kidding.

As I said before, Jun is a boy whose been traumatized because he made a design for someone. The design was brilliant, most girls praised him. But of course, he didn’t hear this and started to become nervous and then he threw up. So from that day on, he stayed in his room for day in and day out.
NOT Comedy Central
Although Rozen Maiden is not finished it still is good. It targeted at a younger audience but I believe it attracts much more than that. Its art style is good for its genre (and in general) and comedy is also good but the plot takes way too long to set up.

Why hello there

Alot of people have been wondering whether or not I still existed these past few couple of months. Well I offer this explanation.

Over 9000 hours in MS paint
But irregardless of bad science projects, it's been a while guys. I promise I haven't forgotten this place. I've got a bunch of half finished drafts of stuff I wanted to post. The last two seasons have been a big game of catch up for me. Every time I thought I was up to date and started writing I would fall behind again from college or something almost instantly.

If that wasn't enough, the entire manly manga division has been pushing me publish something soon (which is just Rob, he's been constantly bugging me on skype), and I've feel like the place has been getting a little to masculine for my tastes. This place seems to require my immediate attention and I promise to give it. Manly manga has already promised to give more content and following his lead (Hey aren't I the one in charge?) I pledge to have this summer one full of girlycartoons.

This summer girlycartoons will have my fullest support. More reviews, more unwarranted hype, more bad jokes, more updates, more girlycartoons. Along with all this updating all summer long there will be some new things introduced to the site. We're going to create update schedules, clean up the site, start organizing the posting. It's all going to be part of a one big season long event, and with that it is my pleasure to announce GirlySummer. More Content. More GirlyCartoons.

Things are gonna get a little bit more girly around here. I promise.
