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

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

NARUTO Ch. 688 Review

Consequences? What are those? While Naruto and Sasuke are in a heated battle to finally seal Kaguya, Obito returns with a parting gift for his old friend. The Good You can be assured that someone at CyberConnect2 has already started animating this for the next NARUTO fighter. Show More Summary

Why Does JOJO'S BIZARRE ADVENTURE Need Kakyoin?

I hate to say it, but Kakyoin’s really proven to be the weakest link. None of these Stardust Crusaders need a scene where hey’re opening up about their feelings at the dinner table, but at least Polnareff has (or had ? Is it totally resolved, now?) that score he needed to settle. Show More Summary

BLEACH Ch. 592 Review

That chill running down the spine of the 13 Court Guard isn't just in their imagination. The undead Captain Hitsugaya has been ordered to slaughter his former compatriots. Will any escape a sudden and cold death? The Good That's debatable. Show More Summary

Kyoukai no Kanata 00 – Origins of Hiroomi’s Siscon

What’s up with KyoAni these days? Like in Chuuni blah blah, I don’t care about the main couple at all. However Minori Chihara as Mitsuki and Ayako Kawasumi as Izumi are utterly wunderbar. (Sorry...
