First Impressions: Durarara!!x2 Ten

The release of Durarara!!'s second cours dubbed started broadcasting last month and it went completely under my radar. 5 episodes in and I've become reacquainted with the denizens of Ikebukuro and the thin line called destiny that intertwines all of their actions together. Read more...

First Impressions: Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans

Another year, another new Gundam series. My interest in Sunrise and Bandai's flagship has waxed and waned over the years, but I'll be the first to admit that I'm rarely attracted to the "mainline" shows that make up the core of the franchise. Show More Summary

Twilight: Animator Expo's 35th short pays homage to a classic Gainax title

The Japan Animator Expo project's third season has released its final announced short (slightly NSFW), and they managed to end it with a huge bang. For the finale, Hiroyasu Kobayashi (The Rebuild of Eva movie series' CGI Director) unleashed...Show More Summary

OP Up! BONES Edition

If you took a look at all the shows that the anime studio BONES' body of work, you're gonna notice that they make stuff that looks a bit 'different' compared to the rest. By that, I mean they look stylish to varying degrees of craziness. Show More Summary

Final Impressions: Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma

I first found Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma through manga. Although I fell out of touch with the anime for several years, I've been periodically reading manga through that time. One of my favorites turned out to be Food Wars for its randomly perverted food reactions mixed with genuine cooking knowledge. Show More Summary

Stop me if you've heard this before, but this show is about a piece of military hardware, invented at some undetermined time in the future, that changes the very nature of warfare forever. Practically invincible on the battlefield and...Show More Summary

First Impressions: Owarimonogatari

Like Christmas, Halloween, and other holidays that I like to celebrate maybe once or twice a year and the same holds true for the release schedule of the Monogatari series. Last year's holiday season brought the four-part epic Tsukimonogatari and this year we have a full 12 episode season which may be the last one of the series. Show More Summary

Final Impressions: MY Love STORY!!

Forgive me for sounding like a broken record, as I'm sure I've said this in the past, but I'm a sucker for good romantic comedies. While there isn't exactly a big list of films I could point to, there are definitely a boatload of romantic anime I could recommend for anyone who'd listen like Toradora, Ichigo 100%, Tenchi Muyo!, or School Rumble.

First Impressions: Attack on Titan: Junior High episode 1

Attack on Titan is one of those series that it doesn't matter what they do, people pay attention to it. The graphically violent and gruesome series shot to popularity first as a manga and then as an anime series. Soon all kinds of spin-offs...Show More Summary

Annotated Anime: One Piece episode 712

I'm not too sure if Toei planned it to coincide with the month of Halloween, but this episode is scarier than the whole of the Thriller Bark Arc. Yep, the arc that is devoted to all things creepy and ghouly was showed up by an episode in the Dressrosa arc. I'd watch this episode with the lights on and when the little ones are already tucked into bed. Read more...

Final Impressions: School-Live!

School-Live! (or Gakkou Gurashi!) nearly slipped under the radar. If you had no idea of the more sinister plot afoot, you'd probably skip the series thinking it's yet another show about four young girls doing young girl things. NoneShow More Summary

Before people start rolling their eyes at another post about a crowd-funded game needing backers, listen to me.

Final Impressions: Garo: Gold Storm Soar

Have you ever had that feeling where a show that you’re keeping up with ends sooner than expected? In my case, it feels stranger for the latest Garo toku series to end at episode 23, since each installment of the franchise usually runs for 25 episodes. Show More Summary

First Impressions: One Punch Man episode 1

One Punch Man is easily the most anticipated anime series of this Fall, and for good reason. ONE and Yusuke Murata's manga is a heavy hitter in the pages of Shonen Jump, and its lead character, Saitama, is the heaviest hitter of all. That...Show More Summary

Watch live video from japanator on Now that I beat Ys Origin as Hugo, it's time for me to travel into another title. Continuing from last week's segment, I'll be figuring out how to navigate through La-Mulana's ruins.

Review: Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls

When it was first announced that Spike Chunsoft's third Danganronpa game wouldn't be a visual novel, a lot of folks, including yours truly, were understandably apprehensive.
