What a shock, another season comes and goes, and I don’t manage to get my end of the season article out until a month into the next season. Naturally I have a good reason for this, this time being the fact that I was busy moving during the end of the Summer season and start of the Fall season, meaning I didn’t exactly…
With a Shonen Jump property as big as My Hero Academia is right now, it’s no surprise that a movie was incoming sooner or later. Well, that time is now. Is the movie Plus Ultra enough to stand alongside the awesome anime, or should it get failed out of the class for having no potential?
Fall, leaves, fall; die, flowers, away;
Lengthen night and shorten day;
Every leaf speaks bliss to me
Fluttering from the autumn tree.
I shall smile when wreaths of snow
Blossom where the rose should grow;
I shall sing when night’s decay
Ushers in a drearier day.*
Oh! Hi! I didn´t see you coming since I was too busy reading…
Ever since coming back from the dead in 2012, Toonami has been a fixture on Saturday nights on Adult Swim. The greatest action block ever created that’s been building you a better cartoon show for 20 years has grown significantly since its revival to become a fixture on the Adult Swim half of Cartoon Network.
What a shocking surprise, I yet again set a deadline for myself, and yet again I ended up passing it. Seems to be a running theme this year. Anyways, no excuse for it this time, I plain and simply ended up running a few weeks behind on some of the shows I was watching and ended up putting this article off to instead…
Captain Earth was a mecha show from 2014 by Studio Bones, hyped due to their past pedigree with other mecha series like Eureka Seven and Star Driver. It was gorgeous, it was a mess, good but not quite great, and I liked it overall. So its biggest contribution to my life was, of course, an episode with crepes.
Sorry for the...rather long delay. That’s what unfortunately happens when the perfect storm of being extremely busy at work and waiting for a certain show to finally end barrels down upon me and wrecks anything remotely resembling any sort of plans I had in terms of a timetable for getting this out before being…
A few days ago, one of the most prominent ani-tubers out there, akidearest, put out a video attempting to replicate one of Food Wars!’s most iconic dishes: The bacon-wrapped mashed potatoes loaf of gloriousness, the “Gotcha” pork roast. A task like that, however, requires a recipe. Where could one get that from?
Mari Okada works can be pretty hit-or-miss, but there’s nothing quite like what she brings to the table. Even if the plot itself is amazing or messy, they always manage to provide those rushing feels, regardless of if you loved the work or hated it. It’s a feeling that can be easily addicting, but what happens when…
Track: Red Swan | Artist: Yoshiki feat. HYDE | Album: TBA (Attack on Titan Season 3 Opening)
I’ve only seen Gintama in fits and spurts, happening upon it as my girlfriend watches it or has me see highlight great episodes. That’s still been more than enough to hear a decent selection of opening and closing themes. This one in particular immediately caught my attention on first exposure.
When you read about the trashiest anime show idea—little girls who get attached to adult male “handlers” and are used as assassins, for example—from a listcicle claiming that it’s actually seriously excellent, that show has some heavy lifting ahead of it to truly be convincing. Sometimes, it pulls that feat off…
My merch enthusiasm does not end with Splatoon. In fact, on a pure figure-by-figure basis, after figurines, Nendoriods and Nendoroid Petits, the clear front-runner is someone else: Girls und Panzer, which I have been majorly into since its premiere six (!!!???) years ago. Here’s a look at what I’ve got.
Not the full-of-water pool type of pool, but the thing where a small number of dub/voice actors do a big amount of works (not sure what the correct phrase is).
When there is news of a franchise being turned over to new hands, it can naturally create a bit of an unease among fans. Unless someone is really yearning to see adaptations of source materials under new direction, generally fans will voice frustration/fear/protest to changes like all humans naturally do. In some…
Going on right now in Russia is the 2018 World Cup, the premier tournament for national football/soccer teams from countries that are not the USA. That makes it the first World Cup held more than a decade after French player Zinedine Zidane’s 2006 headbutt felt ‘round the globe.
Since I’m a basketball fan in real life, it made sense for me to check out a basketball anime, so recently I started watching the ’90s classic Slam Dunk. After the initial exposition and character introductions, the first actual basketball game (except it was a practice game) started in episode 14, and I was super…
Most Anime is adapted from a previous work, be Visual Novel or “regular” Manga. But, have you ever wondered what goes into that “conversion”?
Sometimes the occasion calls for the heart-wringing, the spine-straightening intense, the submersion into deep thought, the insanely awesome, the uproariously hilarious, and so on and so forth. Other times, though, simply need a sweet and relaxed excursion into wintertime camping and tasty foods.
I’m not a music pro (nor even consider myself a connoisseur) but I would like, in my unprofessional-ness, to try to describe and try to pinpoint why I like this Anime Opening so much.
