Yup, GACKT is still gaming, but there's a change... The strangest thing is happening... it looks like he might be having a tiny bit of fun! This time he's brought his buddy Takumi in for a game of River City Ransom. Remember I said a TONY bit of fun.

Like usual, I left it up to my lovely co-workers at Japanator to choose the anime I was going to watch this season. This technique has a few benefits and risks, as they might intentionally be setting me up a hellish few months for laughs, but it also keeps me a bit safe from the anime hype train. Show More Summary
Alright kids, time to load up on the hairspray, neon bracelets, and your favorite denim jacket. We are going back to the 80's! Being a child of the 80's the anime of the time left a huge impression on me, that I really didn't even recognize until much later in my fandom. Show More Summary

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Not a whole lot happens in any single chapter of Bleach. Oftentimes a given 16-20 page installment is little more than the next few steps in a fight, which can, at times, prove a challengeShow More Summary
When Viz announced that at Anime Expo 2014 they're releasing JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Part 2: Battle Tendency in North America, I couldn't help but to rejoice over this matter.

It's time now for a bit more Naruto, and to be honest, there's not all that much to say about the latest chapter despite the copious amounts of talking they do. And without a truly striking image to latch onto, the last week in Naruto ends up as yet more place-setting for the next set of steps in the fight, as well as another potentially infuriating hint-drop.

Back in 2012, Sword Art Online’s first season caused a huge stir in the anime community. Most people hated the show because of Kirito’s character, while others started disliking the series when SAO was in the middle of the Fairy Dance Arc. Show More Summary
Due to the nepotistic, old boy network that masquerades as democracy in Japan, it’s not hard to understand why voter turnout is low, and apathy reigns supreme. A passing down of the positions of power that arguably makes the current, old Etonian filled cabinet of Britain, seem positively revolutionary. But thankfully there are signs that […]
Attention, all passengers. The ToQger Express has taken a scenic route during its most recent episode. Now let's give a round of applause to our special railroad worker, as he’s been a great help in improving our experience so far. However, not everyone's pleased with Zaram's contributions, since the other ToQger have yet to accept ToQ 6. Show More Summary

Having completed this season, I have no reservations whatsoever when I say this is the best slice-of-life offering I've seen in years. Drama-free, happy-go-lucky, no-strings-attached episode after episode of fun characters and exceptionally great art. Read more...
Our lovable cast was in some trouble the last time we checked, but luckily for everyone, Kiryu is around to knock some sense into our protagonists. One Week Friends proved to be one of the strongest shows of the season, even if it doesn't have the flash or draw as other offerings. Read more...
