List of Written Reviews I’ve Done for ANN

Was asked about this recently, and there’s not really an easy-to-find list of what all I’ve written about for ANN, but there is a lot of it, and I often get asked my opinion on things that I’ve already written thousands of words about on ANN too, so! I made a comprehensive list.

Now some of these are very old. Some of them are not! So I guess just take note of the date in the byline for some of these if you want to shake your head at the poorer writing of mine younger days. Anyway! I’m writing very frequently for the site now, so with any luck the new content will outweigh the old in no time at all. :) Here’s the list!


anohana: The Flower we Saw that Day (the movie)

Attack on Titan (eps. 1-13)

Attack on Titan English Dub Preview (eps. 1-5)

Bamboo Blade (eps. 13-26)

Black Butler (eps. 1-13)

Case Closed Movie: Captured in Her Eyes

Corpse Princess (eps. 1-13)

Death Note ReLight 2

Devil May Cry 


Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood (eps. 1-13)

Future Diary 

Gatchaman Crowds

Gunslinger Girl

Gunslinger Girl: Il Teatrino 

Gunslinger Girl OVA

Hetalia: Axis Powers (season one)

Hetalia: Beautiful World (season five)

Junjou Romantica (season one)

Kamisama Kiss

Kenichi the Mightiest Disciple (eps. 27-38)

Kill La Kill (eps. 1-4)

Lupin the 3rd: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine 

Madoka Magica the Movie III: Rebellion

Nabari no Ou (eps. 1-13)

Nabari no Ou (eps. 14-26)

One Piece (eps. 144-156)

Princess Nine

Psycho-Pass (season one)


Servant x Service

Silver Spoon (season one)

Soul Eater (eps. 1-13)

Soul Eater (eps. 27-39)

Tokyo Majin 

Trigun: Badlands Rumble

Wolf Children


(This is a new feature, but it’s going to explode in content volume quickly. Basically, it’s AV-club-style short writeups of shows episode by episode rather than long pieces covering one whole series. It started this Summer 2014 and I’ll be covering three shows a season going forward, so yeah, it’ll grow pretty fast.)

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders

Rail Wars!

Tokyo Ghoul


(These are writeups/quick reviews of the first episode of the couple dozen shows that air each season, right when they come out. “First impressions” of sorts. The writeup that’s labeled “Hope Chapman” under any given show’s page is mine, but there are lots of writers with differing opinions right up against each other for each new show, which is what makes the guide fun!)

Winter 2014

Spring 2014

Summer 2014

Fall 2014

I’ll just bookmark this post, edit it whenever there’s something new to add, and link it or a specific review from it whenever I get that question again. Hopefully it’ll be more convenient that way. :’D So many wurds!

someone who doesn’t watch tokyo ghoul tell me what you think this is about

Homosexual purple man attempts to woo a young teen with an eye injury

He wants to woo his delicious insides. Also, woo rhymes with barbeCUE.

Guess what everyone? I'm writing for ANN!


So I don’t know how many of you who follow me here read Anime News Network (though you should be), but if you do, you probably saw an announcement today that the site had hired a bunch of new people as streaming reviewers.

Well, in case you were wondering, the “Rose Bridges” on the list was me….

YEAH BOI. I’m assistant editor on this big ole new project on Anime News Network and also writing about Tokyo Ghoul, Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, and Rail Wars!

You can check all that stuff out here:

Excited to be working and writing with my good buddies Gabriella (writin’ bout Terror in Resonance, DRAMAtical Murder, and Sailor Moon Crystal) and Rose (writin’ bout Black Butler: Book of Circus) as well as all the other new and returning writers. So please, tell us what you think of the new feature over at ANN, and I hope you enjoy the daily streaming reviews! :D

Lovely Little Thieves Trailer!

I know I said the next update on this tumblr would be the completed demo, but I lost two of the days over the weekend I was going to use to complete it, so it’s just a couple more days off yet. It’s sitting at about 25,000 words and around 40 choices, so by “demo” standards, you’re getting a lot of VN. Thank you for being so patient!

This is a special update though. The trailer for the game is now finished! It was edited by myself and my friend Josh Brumfield (krosswerks.) Enjoy and pass it around! The demo is right around the corner…

awwwwwwwwwww yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeah~
