Mothballs: Soups And Strings May Break My Bones, But Muybridge Never Hurt My Cat

This Week: Muybridge‘s Strings and Cat Soup

A late Thanksgiving means December snuck up on me this year, so I need to get cracking on some Really Fun Posts I have planned and eventual end of the year writing shenanigans. As such, while I develop more of a head start on those, the round of dives into the anime backcatalog swamp this week gunned for short artsy pieces.

Mothballs: Loves Once Drifted Macross The Stars

This Week: The Super Dimension Fortress Macross: Flash Back 2012

Mothballs: The Megalopolis Is Doomed And Nobody Knows Kung Fu

This Week: Doomed Megalopolis

Mothballs: Damsels In Distress, More (And Less) Than Meets The Eye

This Week: The Five Star Stories and Black Magic M-66

The eternal gift of the OVA and short anime film market: the ability to retreat from trying to keep tabs on too many currently airing shows and larger series projects in progress while still having the satisfaction of being able to get to a finale.
