Look at her. So complacent. Complacency is vulnerability, as we see (sort of) in Chapter 14 of JJ. Rough time ahead for the JJ crew. Review are coming up. Stay tuned.

Things seem to be looking up in Notos, but it's time for a change in Rowland's Chapter 4 of TTWC3. Keep your eye on the horizon for more JJ and reviews. Stay tuned.

This week we've got a bit of a melange for you. From the winter 2016 season we have the second season of GATE and ERASED. We also have Volume 3 and Volume 4 of the Neon Genesis Evangelion manga and the book Wretched Writing. I haven't decided on a theme, if any, for next week, but expect more of the Eva manga at least. I'll continue to post two volumes a week until I round out the series. Once that's done, I'll start up Yotsuba&!. Other than that, look for more TTWC3 and JJ. Stay tuned.

When approached by the cops, playing dead isn't an option. Well, I suppose you could try, but it's not likely to do you any good. Fortunately, Margot Leider doesn't try to follow the junior mascot's example in Chapter 14 of EM. Look for reviews coming up. Stay tuned.

You're probably wondering how Medusa's expedition to Notos turned out. Well, find out for yourself in Rowland's Chapter 3 of TTWC3. We've got more EM and reviews coming up. Stay tuned.

We conclude our series of Biblical epics with a selection of extracanonical films. Most prominent among these is the legendary Ben-Hur, but we can't forget its earlier rendering, 1925's Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ. We also have the Anthony Quinn vehicle Barabbas and Paul Newman's embarrassing (for him) film debut, The Silver Chalice. We also have Volume 2 of the Neon Genesis Evangelion manga. As I don't plan to start plumbing the depths of Veggie Tales films, we're going to be shifting our focus next week with an eclectic mix to include a couple selections from last season's anime lineup, more of the Eva manga, and a book review. On the story front, look for more TTWC3 and EM. Stay tuned.

I don't have a thematic tie-in for this week's pic. Just enjoy the mascot. Also, we've got Chapter 13 of JJ. We've got reviews coming up. Stay tuned.

Last week we covered some selected adaptations of stories from the Old Testament and now we move on to the New Testament. We start with our good friend Cecil B DeMille's 1927 The King of Kings, followed by 1961's similarly titled King of Kings, the somewhat notorious The Greatest Story Ever Told, and the very notorious The Passion of the Christ (with a review that might spark some controversy itself). I would've liked to have a review of The Last Temptation of Christ as well for another controversial take on the subject matter, but it doesn't air too often, so maybe I can catch it again sometime in the future. Outside the theme of the week, I've updated my review of The Force Awakens in light of its recent DVD release and I'm kicking off reviews of the Neon Genesis Evangelion manga, starting with Volume 1. We'll be ending our theme week with some NT-based extracanonical stories next week and there'll be more TTWC3 and JJ as well. Stay tuned.

Once upon a time, the mascot was a sprightly young girl with spots on her head and a song in her heart. I bring this up because we're taking a look into the past in Chapter 13 of EM. And speaking of the past, the upcoming batch of reviews will be covering some major events from 2000 years ago. Stay tuned.

The revolution begins with Rowland's Chapter 1 of TTWC3. This is but the first of many blows to the occupation. Look for more EM and reviews coming up. Stay tuned.
