5.0 out of 5 stars Why I Watch Anime, 15 Nov. 2014
If I ever wonder if an adult English man should be watching amine Clannad is one those series that for me remove all doubt.

You don't have to be an otaku to be deeply affected by this complex, gut-wrenching but life affirming anime. As a westerner I don't entirely understand how it works - but it works in spades; and for westerners too. Like all of the best anime (if well translated) it gives access to a parallel, oriental world that is both strangely different and strangely the same as ours. You don't so much watch this as live it.

I will now bow politely and thank you taking the time to read my unworthy comments.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not my kind of anime - but I loved it!, 18 Oct. 2014
I don't know why I even looked at this - but I got hooked. The overall story is virtually non-existent, the characters fairly shallow and the situations fairly limited in scope, but for some reason it works. It reminds me a bit of "Your'e Under Arrest". The cleverness lies in the unending barrage of jokes (both situational and one liners - sometimes very subtle) and the extremely clever animation - which is not elaborate or involved but is exactly right for the story. I think the best way to approach this anime is not to expect much - and be really surprised. Like me you'll probably like it and not really know why.

5.0 out of 5 stars Usual "Dummies" Quality - Excellent, 25 Sept. 2014

Excellent guide to the S5 - both as a cover to cover read and to dip in as a reference (which is normal for the "Dummies" series).

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not much to say except they are decent sized good quality pegs with a good grip. The best I've seen so far. Four packs (ie this order of three packs plus an additional pack of 24) have completely filled my peg bag to bursting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Quality & Useful Size, 25 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very pleased with these. They are the general quality of a decent quality carrier bag (ie thicker than your typical supermarket bag) but with a gusset in the base. Will accommodate not just A4 papers (a lot of them) but folders for A4 papers. The carrying hole is well clear of the top of a normal folder. Very clear - I can easily read very fine print through two thicknesses of the material. I can see myself buying these again - and probably quite soon because they clearly have a lot of uses.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unexpected Feature, 9 Sept. 2014
Can't comment on how long it last but initial impressions very positive (especially given the price). One feature of the box (which is probably just the way it is made rather than a deliberate design feature) is that the lids will pull off - as two separate plastic strips (each with seven lids). Taking these off makes it far easier to load up the box. Then you just push them back in (they are perfectly secure) and the box is complete. Very pleased with purchase. At the price, given how easy it is to use, if wears out after a year, 'll simply buy another one. However nothing about it looks shoddy so I may well last a lot longer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Needs Polishing – But Already a Gem, 31 Aug. 2014
This strange little anime is quite beguiling – and is one of the very few I watched twice straight away (ie without a couple of years between viewings).

The episodes vary between short and very short. Superficially the animation is crude – little more than fairly early game standard. It is however done very cleverly with particular attention to significant detail (especially faces), timing and gestures. Its as though the author could only afford a cheap graphic package – but happened to be a genius.

But the amine’s real strength lies in the script. The plot is pretty standard (fighter school with lots of monsters and quite bearable fight scenes [I don’t much for them myself]) but the dialogue and repartee are so good you could almost listen to it as radio play. Its incredibly funny and exhibits an often ironic and dry wit English people will particularly enjoy. Its not deep humour – but masses of often understated amusing comments and one-liners that should keep you entertained.

In itself the anime is far too short and is an introduction to a story than a story in itself. Hopefully the full main anime will be published soon. I just hope though that, if it is, the very minor problem of the partly crude animation is not resolved at the cost of the spirit of the fast, funny and witty original.

More of exactly the same would be extremely welcome.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Mintoes - But Not Like the Old Nuttall's Mintoes, 10 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First of all, these are very good mintoes and will not be be a disappointment in themselves. They are the right size. BUT they aren't like the old white Nuttall's Mintoes - that they seem to be imitating. For a start they are brown, and added to that they don't feel quite the same in the mouth. Still they are nicer than the Murray Mints that Nuttall's Mintoes became.

If you just want good Mintoes these a 5 star. If you want the old, white Nuttall's Mintoes these aren't them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Decent Quality Inter-Dental Pick, 26 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Interdental Pick (Personal Care)
Had one of these for years and bought a second one for convenience - not because the first one wore out. The pick is far better quality than some of the alleged dentist's pick you can pick up quite cheaply (that look like the real thing but are nowhere near professional quality).

Wouldn't recommend using without a good reason. Floss, flossers and inter-dental brushes are far better for general use. But if you have got a cavity awaiting repair where food is getting stuck this is excellent.

Maybe not Snap-On quality but a perfectly good set of sockets that would be good for most purposes. Very happy with them.
