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

First Impressions: Heavy Object

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

Indivisible Indie GoGo Campaign Launched

Before people start rolling their eyes at another post about a crowd-funded game needing backers, listen to me. These guys know what they're doing and they've gone through development hell with their last game and came out on top. Lab Zero Games, best known for the indie smash hit Skullgirls is working on their second game called Indivisible. Show More Summary

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

Japanator Live: Sal attempts to unravel La-Mulana's mysteries

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. Right now, I'm basically lost since the game requires for players to solve a few puzzles along the way. Show More Summary

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. Trigger Happy Havoc and its fantastic sequel Goodbye Despair were master-class examples of the medium, after all. Show More Summary

Week Ender - Macross Edition

Macross is one of those recognizable anime properties around the world, though it may be in due to Robotech, the US cartoon franchise that combined Macross with two other unrelated robot anime to be able to syndicated on US television. Show More Summary

Hiroyuki Okiura's recent piece takes us on a road trip with a perverted traveler

For some unknown reason, I've always found it fascinating when a project would release a new segment that shares a similar theme with its predecessor. In this case, the Japan Animator Expo's 34th short, "Robot on the Road" (NSFW), happens to have a machine as the main character. Show More Summary

Annotated Anime: One Piece episode 711

Better late than never with this week's annotated anime. Let's get on with the show that was formerly about a kid wanting to be a pirate but is now about trying to escape a kingdom midway through a coup d'etat. coup d'etat Read more...

Simulcast GET: Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans heads to and Hulu

It looks like there's another good reason to be a Gundam fan this year, since the upcoming series, Mobile Suit Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans, hits and Hulu on Oct. 4 at 7:30 p.m. Japan Standard Time/3:30 a.m. Pacific Standard Time/6:30 a.m. Show More Summary

OP Up! Macross Edition

Annotated Anime: Himouto! Umaru Chan episode 12

Ok, Japanators I think we all know the drill for a high school beach episode. Cue the excessive bloom from the sun, girls in bikinis except the token flat chest in a junior high swimming costume, beach style food like fried octopus balls and soft ice creams, and silly shenanigans that show off both the exquisite sights of girls and the surroundings.
