This summer was a very interesting season for anime! Never before have I seen a season that was filled with so much potential and hope only to be quickly flushed down the drain after a few episodes. Yeah... this was not a good season for anime in the slightest. I know there are a bunch of people that found some really great shows these past three months, but nothing stood out to me or caught my interest. When a show did catch my interest though, all of the anticipation and hope I had for it left me faster than I could watch it. It was a chore to watch several of these shows, to the point where I had to muster up all of the strength I could to watch them all to completion so I could give a full review. So here they are. The five shows that I've seen this season and how most of them suck. Cheers.

Hello and welcome back to TCO's Seasonal Orders! You may be wondering why this is coming out earlier than other Seasonal Orders, but I'll happily be able to provide and explanation for that in a little bit. That being said, here's what you can look forward to in the next three months!

Over the summer, I had the joy of playing through a little title called Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc. I thought that it was a great murder mystery visual novel with some interesting characters and gameplay mechanics. On the whole, I really dug it and had a great time playing it. I would go so far as to say that it's one of the few reasons to own a Playstation Vita (Persona 4 Golden being all of the other reasons). The ending of the game though left it kind of hard to imagine how a sequel could be made. If Monokuma was defeated at the end of the last game, and most of the cast died as well, what can even be done for a sequel that won't make it feel like it's trying to live in the shadow of its predecessor. Can it even surpass its predecessor?

As we get closer and closer to Halloween, one of my favorite times of the year. I can't help but start to get into the horror mood. You may recall I did a review not too long ago of Five Nights at Freddy's, and just recently I decided to play through P.T (long story short, go play P.T it's absolutely fantastic). I just can't help but feel the horror in the air and start to inch my way back to the horror genre, which is a genre that I feel can fail incredibly easily. But there are those times where once in a while, you see a horror movie or play a horror game that just plain works. Case in point, Oculus is one hell of a great horror movie.

I'm going to be saying a lot of things about The Nut Job in this review. Most of them won't be pleasant, but there is one thing that I want to say about this movie right off the bat. This movie is a historical landmark. I don't mean that in the sense that it's a historical landmark for this blog, but a legitimate cinematic historical landmark. The Nut Job is actually the first globally released animated movie from South Korea. Now, one might be wondering why this is important, but here is the reason why. It is because of that reason, and that reason alone, that this haunts my nightmares.
