WIZARD BARRISTERS Should be A Whole Lot Weirder -- Review

This premise sounded quite lame when Matt brought it up on the Pit a while back. Awkwardly smooshing loud genre elements into a boring, clerical field might as well be an anime cliché, by now; and "SORCERY + LAW" here seemed like noShow More Summary

HUNTER X HUNTER #45 + 46 + 47 is Like Going to Class

One of the more subtle (?) signs of an animation studio straining on a production schedule…? Characters starting to repeat entire dialog passages, verbatim, at the show’s commercial breaks. Certainly, I understand that such semi-recaps are...Show More Summary

WITCH CRAFT WORKS - Review - It's Paint-by-Numbers Anime?

KILL LA KILL #20 is Stitched Together Messily

So Evil Strawberry Shortcake has the Loony Toons healing factor, too? I hink that’s got less to do with the show establishing some hierarchy of superpowers so much as it’s Trigger’s way of winking at us and saying, “Don’t worry. We’re well aware that none of these fights have had any consequences. Show More Summary

Shouldn't SAMURAI FLAMENCO #18 Be Over, Now? -- Watch & Learn

Can’t get much more Morrison-ian than a supehero basically going to heaven, meeting his creator and learning that he might be existing in multiple real and fictional realities at once (right?). I had to double-check the episode listing to make sure this wasn’t the finale. Show More Summary
