March comes in like a lion was one of last year's best anime (that is still airing), written by Honey and Clover author Chika Umino and brought to screen with brilliant animation by the studio SHAFT (Madoka Magica, Bakemonogatari). March...Show More Summary
Madoka is one of the best shows I've watched in the last five years or so. What starts off as a standard slice of life/magical girl narrative becomes so much more, and I won't spoil it beyond that. It's also the kind of series that would...Show More Summary

Most anime is adapted from manga, often produced by the manga publisher to raise awareness and sell it overseas. But what about the anime shows or film that go the other way, adapted from the screen to the page? How do those works hold...Show More Summary
Hidamari Sketch is a show I would recommend to people who like SHAFT (Bakemonogatari, Puella Magi Madoka Magica) and would want something a bit more subtle than their usual outrageous stuff.

While taking in WIXOSS, I couldn't stop thinking to myself, "This show really, REALLY wants to be Madoka Magica," and you know what? That's probably really unfair. After all, Madoka was a groundbreaking show; there's nothing wrong with taking inspiration from it. Show More Summary
