Starting with the Spring 2014 season, the reviewing duties around here will be split between three authors, who will watch, review, and rate three to four shows each. They’ll continue to deliver the concise, insightful anime reviews RABUJOI is known for. They will not always succeed.
We felt the change from Winter to Spring was the ideal time for the staff to step out from behind the monolithic rabujoistaff moniker, and take their places behind new, distinct identities. Where there once was one voice, soon there will be three. Please be nice to them…or don’t; they can take it!

Greetings. Hannah here, and I like watching things explode, or at the very least moving very fast. To that end, I’ll be focusing on action, adventure, space, and sci-fi genres. This spring, I’ll be watching Akuma no Riddle, Black Bullet (here’s hoping they’re any good), and the second cour of Nobunaga the Fool. Yoroshiku onegaitashimasu.
Handle: sesameacrylic (no caps) | Real Name: Zane Kalish | Gender: Male | Birthday: 12 May | Blood Type: AB+ | Favorite Food: Ceviche | Favorite Anime: Toradora!, Haruhi Suzumiya, Kare Kano, Zetsubou-Sensei, Nazo no Kanojo X, Sket Dance
My focus will be on comedy, romance, school, and slice-of-life; less explosions and punching, more jokes and hand-holding. Where those overlap with genres of Hannah or Preston, we’ll play Jan-ken-pon, but come Spring I’ll be checking out Mekaku City Actors, Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin, and the final seven eps of Nisekoi‘s odd 20-episode run. I wanted the school series Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei, but Preston claimed it because it’s a magic school… :P
Handle: MagicalChurlSukui | Real Name: Preston Yamazuka | Gender: Female | Birthday: 22 Jan | Blood Type: B+ | Favorite Food: Tamagoyaki | Favorite Anime: Mawaru Penguindrum, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, AnoHana, Serial Experiments Lain, From the New World, Shiki
If Hannah is Strength and Zane is Stamina (you need it, getting through some of those will-they-won’t-theys), then I’m Magic. I’ll be delving into the realms of fantasy, magic, mystery, and the supernatural. My Spring watchlist will consist of Gokukoku no Brynhildr, Hitsugi no Chaika, and Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei, in addition to the second cour of Nagi no Asukara. Douzo yoroshiku!
