Fairy Tail Animation Analysis Part 2: The adventures of Toshiharu Murata and Sachiko Ohashi

The last time i wrote about the animation in Fairy Tail was around the start of the current series and in that i mostly shat on it for being ridiculously inconsistent (even more so than the first series). As I'm writing this post I'm in a much less irritable mood. I'm back on the Fairy Tail bandwagon after a while of just being sick of Mashima stalling for time with boring arcs. At the start of the Tartaros arc is where the series really hits its stride and gets back to what i loved about the earlier arcs and as i'm enjoying the new episodes i've had some time to look back at the old show and do a bit more research into the people that made that show look good when it did. I already made a sakuga MAD of the old show but as it pertains to this post the most appropriate video accompaniment would be this.

Vixen (Miniseries) Review

As a fan of Warner Bros Animation's DC Comics related output you can probably imagine how excited i was when they announced that they'd be producing a series focusing on one of the more memorable characters from their much praised series Justice League Unlimited. Having never read up much on her origins i figured this would be an educational watch in that regard. With some of the writing staff from The CW's cape shows on board and it being announced that it would officially be set in that same universe, me watching this show was pretty much a foregone conclusion. I did have misgivings however, such as the fact that it would only be six episodes at around 5 minutes each. As a test run i concluded it was better than nothing so i waited eagerly for it to premiere. Now that its concluded its run i thought i'd share my thoughts on the series.
