What's Consistent About HUNTER X HUNTER #143 -- Special Review

I had ambivalent feelings, walking away from the ‘Chimera Ant’ saga. It wasn’t that I disliked HxH; I was just frustrated that these appealing characters weren’t in a plot they deserved. When hat happened, I realized my reluctance was a result of one part of the shonen formula. Show More Summary

NARUTO Ch. 689 Review

Look, Sakura was useful, everyone. With Kakashi has guide, Naruto, Sakura, and Sasuke combine their power to complete Team 7's final mission to seal Kaguyafor good. The Good Pretty sneaky, fellas. The most enjoyment I got out of this chapter was in the strategy of the combat. Show More Summary

This is Krillin's Origin in DRAGON BALL #14?

Nations may rise and stocks may fall, seasons will change and the stars can fall from the sky… …but we can always go back to DRAGON BALL, can’t we? I’m not going to fall into the fallacy of saying that all anime of the 80’s was better than anime today; but it’s still fun to revisit a series that’s stood the test of time the way this has.

HUNTER X HUNTER -- AV Mods' Roundtable

Hello everyone, I'm Taka with three of our Hunter x Hunter veteran Vicers who will share their opinions on the franchise as a whole and then shed some light on its latest arc, 13th Hunter Chairman. Taichokage (manga and 1999 anime only) and RubberLuffy will be your guides on that. Show More Summary

Parting Ways with AKAME GA KILL!

Oof. I had this same issue with CHAIKA, THE COFFIN PRINCESS… I realize it’s all fantasy at the end of the day, but there’s something about the specific sight of a gal pulling a BFG out (and a sniper a rifle, at that!) in a pseudo-medieval setting. Show More Summary

JOJO'S BIZARRE ADVENTURE : STARDUST CRUSADERS #21 -- Special Review

To be fair, all stripes of pulp serial are going to find a way to resurrect their heroes eventually. However, while American superhero comics will reach for all sorts of convoluted processes to bring people back (time bullets?), it amuses...Show More Summary

Community Spotlight 8/22/2014

Greetings, Anime Vice Community! So, the front page may have seemed a touch lonely since WEEKLY SHONEN JUMP was off for the week due to the Obon festival in Japan. Tom still gave you plenty of content to absorb. There was an interesting...Show More Summary

Comparing ALDNOAH ZERO #3 to CODE GEASS

Okay, the reveal of the princess’ secret identity was a good wist. No question there, but... it really should’ve happened in the second episode. It’s worth bringing up CODE GEASS as a comparison point here. That show was also a mecha...Show More Summary

AKAME GA KILL! is... OK for a Harem Show?

You know… you guys are right. The harem aspects of this set-up have already gotten a lot harder to sit through. That said, I’d still give this a so-so verdict because the underlying story is actually pretty well plotted out. And by ‘plotted,’...Show More Summary

JOJO'S BIZARRE ADVENTURE : STARDUST CRUSADERS #20 -- Special Review

Guess that answers my question about Kakyoin’s usefulness last time… I still think he could use an episode or two to get a bit more back-story and personality. As is, he sort-of, kind-of fits in as the most naïve/sensitive member of the group; but again, the character profile really isn’t that defined. Show More Summary

Listen to the JOJO'S BIZARRE ADVENTURE Rap!

It's another #OtakuTuesday! Richie Branson continues his weekly, anime-inspired rap series with a hip-hop tribute to JOJO'S BIZARRE ADVENTURE. Next Tuesday marks the release of his free album consisting of entirely of songs inspired by anime he's watched during late night binges on CrunchyRoll. Show More Summary

I'm Trying Really Hard to Like ALDNOAH ZERO #2

You know, I’m quick to say that Gen Urobuchi is my favorite anime writer, but it’s easy to forget the other edge of his body-of-work. While I might find series like PSYCHO-PASS to be transcendent pieces of genre fiction, it’s worth stating...Show More Summary

Excellent Anime You Might've Missed -- BREAK UPS

Sometimes, you just feel like idly snooping through CrunchyRoll’s back catalogue. Sometimes, you even come across a gem. It’s amusing that this is labeled as ‘slice of life’ when he premise involves a couple just stumbling across a ring-shaped time machine on he beach. Show More Summary
