Always Strive to be a Better You
After the great amount of success for ONE’s first webcomic to anime adaptation, One Punch Man, a lot of the anime community was clamoring for more. That show was fun, provided some commentary on the superhero genre, and was something a lot of people didn’t expect. Rather than be met with a second season like many had hoped, instead we were given another adaptation of a different ONE webcomic: Mob Psycho 100. Did this follow up live up to the hype or should things have stopped while they were ahead? Let’s find out! Continue reading “Anime ABC’s M is for Mob Psycho 100”
Believing in Yourself is Your Magic!
Little Witch Academia is an anime that came out of Studio Trigger after the release of two popular OVA’s. Announced during the airing of Space Patrol Luluco (I recommend that by the way) back in Spring 2016, I was pretty excited for a full series. The OVA’s were very fun and the world of witches seemed inviting. Did the TV anime manage to woo me with its magic and positive messages or was it a disappointment? Read on to find out!

A Bonus Fall 2017 Anime Review!
Our Love has always Been 10 cm Apart, or as I’ll refer to it as 10 cm, is an extra anime I decided to pick up while writing all the reviews for the Fall 2017 anime I watched. Being only six episodes long, each at standard length, I figured: “why not?” It’s your typical romance story that really doesn’t bring anything new to the table. However, I decided it was worth mentioning because of its length and how that effected the pacing. Continue reading “Our Love has always Been 10 cm Apart – Short & Simple”
My Favorite Anime of the Fall 2017 Season
We have reached the final (official) entry in my journey to review every Fall 2017 anime. Today, I’ll be talking about The Ancient Magus’ Bride up to the mid-season finale. As with the other entries, you can view my initial thoughts on the series here. I’ve saved my personal favorite for last and am excited to discuss it so let’s waste no time!

Kekkai Sensen is Back!
Season two of Blood Blockade Battle Front, or Kekkai Sensen, is something that I was super excited for back when season one finished up. It took awhile, but it did finally come! My initial thoughts on this season (which you can read here) were fairly mixed, but it did manage to pull together in the end. Here’s my take on BBB season two. Continue reading “Blood Blockade Battle Front & Beyond – Still Nothing New in the Big Apple”
Riding the waves of Eromanga…
I did that intro already in my Fall 2017 anime impressions article which you should totally check out. Despite what things may first appear, what A Sister’s All You Need ends up being is a hodgepodge of romance, comedy, meta-narrative, drama… thing. I’ve heard a lot about how it is just baseless pandering and repetitive jokes with an overly sexual focus but coming from a guy who is pretty quickly turned off by stuff like that I actually found myself enjoying this. A lot. Continue reading “A Sister’s All You Need – Not What You Think”
For my initial thoughts, take a look at when I did my first impressions article for the Fall 2017 anime season.
I had high hopes for King’s Game but was ultimately let down. Watching this was akin to watching a death, so with that let us all morn together and walk through the seven stages of grief. May this anime rest its weary soul in peace, torn to shreds by the internet (I actually kind of low-key liked it though…). Continue reading “King’s Game & The 7 Stages of Grief”
I Spy a Good Show?
This isn’t actually the first time I’ve talked about Joker Game on the site. I actually took a look way back in Spring 2016 when the show was actually airing. At the time, I was only partially through and was watching it in Japanese. You can read my thoughts on it from then here (I’ll be referring to some of my thoughts there so you may want to read it). This time I decided to watch the show dubbed via VRV to see if my thoughts changed.
With that, did Joker Game manage to be a good show in the end? Did the English voice acting improve its quality? Let’s find out! Continue reading “Anime ABC’s – J is for Joker Game”
Definitely a Shinbou Work
Here we are at the conclusion of Obsucre Week and our October Review Fest. Today I’ll be looking at an interesting title: Le Portait de Petite Cossette. This anime is a three episode OVA series that came out of studio Daume back in 2004. Haven’t heard of them? Think again, this is the studio behind some fan favorites like Yuru Yuri, and another great Halloween title, Shiki. Is this title a hidden gem, or something that was best left buried in the past? Let’s find out. Continue reading “Le Portrait de Petite Cossette – Beauty Effects us in Mysterious Ways”
Except for These Immortal Women
Likely the least obscure of the titles I’m taking a look at for Obscure Week during our October Review Fest, Rin: Daughters of Mnemosyne is a 6 episode series that offers horror, mystery, sex, and violence. Each episode clocks in at about 45 minutes and explores the life of Rin and Mimi, two immortal women who’s lives go unchanged as the world changes around them. Well, that is until one fated encounter. Continue reading “Rin: Daughters of Mnemosyne – The Times are Always Changing”
