I hope everybody is doing well this fine October. The past couple of years I’ve done Halloween events, most notably last year with my October Review Fest where I did a whole month of themed content. Unfortunately this year I totally spaced the fact that October comes after September (I’ve been dealing with a lot of stuff, bare with me guys) so I was not at all prepared to do an awesome event at that scale again this year. Don’t distress though, that’s where Freaky Fridays come in! Every Friday this month I’ll have a themed article for the Halloween season. Today, 10 anime to get you into the Halloween spirit! Continue reading “Freaky Friday 1 of 4 – 10 Anime to get You into the Halloween Spirit”
You guys voted over on my Twitter for me to do a list featuring some anime you might have missed, some might even say obscure, so here we are! I’ve actually done two lists like this in the past which you can read those here and here. So in total, you’ll be getting a whole 15 anime recommendations today! You’ll certainly have a lot of shows to pick from after this.
Much like previous lists, titles featured here are ones I’ve watched. These entries are not ranked in any way and I tried to pick a variety of titles so you can find at least one potential show to give a chance to. Of course, I might have left out a really great title so feel free to make additional recommendations in the comments below for both myself and your fellow readers. Let’s get on with the list!

Exactly What it Says on the Tin
I actually remembered to do one of these this year! Here are the top ten shows I watched in 2017. The only rules are that I can only mention shows I finished for the first time during 2017 and they have to be complete. No ongoing stuff (sorry Magus Bride) I watched a lot of shows (78~) this year so it was a tough choice for some of these. Let’s get this party started with the number ten spot! Continue reading “Top 10 Anime I Watched in 2017”
School is Starting Again…
So I thought this was the perfect time to make a list of five great anime that will get you fired up for back to school. Whether you are just entering middle school, high school, or college, there will be something on the list for everyone. The only rules is that I’ve had to have seen the anime and that it’s about kids at school. Entries are in no particular order. So with that, let’s get right to the list! Continue reading “5 Anime Just in Time for Back-to-School”
Looking For Something New?
Back in December 2015 I made a list of 5 Underrated Anime and I thought it was about time I got to making another. Since then I’ve seen way more shows and of them, here are a few more that could do with a little more love.
Only shows I’ve watched to conclusion are counted, just like last time. If I missed a good show to recommend, I probably just haven’t seen it or didn’t include it this time around. Feel free to recommend any interesting shows of your own in the comments and let me know what you think of the shows on this list as well! Continue reading “5 (More) Underrated Anime”
5 Great Films That Anyone Can Enjoy, Even Non-Anime Fans
Looking for some good films? Interested in seeing what anime may have to offer? Well than look no further! As I mentioned in my ‘How to Introduce Others to Anime’ article, it can be intimidating jumping into the plethora of anime out there. With this list I aim to recommend some great films and even try and convince some people to try something new.
Rules for the list are as follows:
- Ghibli is off limits. All of those films are pretty solid and get a recommendation from me, but since I want this list to be diverse I won’t be including any of them on it. If you want to know some good Ghibli films I recommend Spirited Away (check out my review of that), Howl’s Moving Castle, or Ponyo as a starting point.
- No movies that require knowledge or are attached to a series. I have one exception on this list, but I’ll explain that one when we get to it. Without this rule you’d definitely see The Disappearances of Haruhi Suzumiya on here along with some others.
- One movie per director. I want the list to be diverse, for similar reasons as there will be no Ghibli films.
- Only films that are both subbed and dubbed are on this list. Want to be friendly to all audiences and subbed films are a turn off for a lot of people who may not watch this sort of thing regularly.
- Each film will have a link to where you can purchase it, and if there is any way to stream the film (in NA) legally, I’ll link that as well. All films can be found at Rightstuf.com but I’ll only include the cheapest place.
With all that, let’s get on with the list! Continue reading “5 Anime Films That Non-Anime Fans Can Enjoy”

Navigating the seemingly endless number of shows and movies on sites like Hulu or Netflix can be a daunting task. Netflix offers a much smaller selection of anime, but it can be hard to know exactly what they have. For this list I picked 5 series that can be watched on their service right now.
