This week, Justin takes on the old shojo/shonen categories, whether Section23 should still keep doing their own dubs, whether the Japanese will ever get on Spotify, and why anime based on American stuff so rarely shows up here. ― It's Memorial Day Weekend, the unofficial start of summer! I hope you all have something fun planned. I try not to go anywhere this weekend, because everyone inevitably tri...
Another love interest gets added to the Nisekoi pile, but is it enough to inject some life into this standard harem comedy? ― Anime romantic comedies commonly depend heavily on regular infusions of new characters to sustain and periodically revitalize themselves, and so far the first Nisekoi series has been pretty good about pacing itself on this. In its second quarter the addition of Seishiro shook ...

An old man becomes a cybernetic killing machine courtesy of the author of Gantz. Just don't get between him and the early bird special. ― Inuyashiki “When I see old men eating beef bowls alone, late at night…lonely old salarymen…I wonder what their joy in life is. Why are they eating alone? Don’t they have families to be with?” I almost read a YA shojo manga for this week, but instead, somehow, I'm ...
Before Sword Art Online, before Log Horizon, there was .hack//SIGN. Is the original MMO adventure worth revisiting? Nick Creamer investigates. ― In a time when Sword Art Online and Log Horizon have both become relative titans of the “genre,” it's interesting to return to the grandfather of MMO anime. .hack//SIGN is different from those shows - in contrast to Log Horizon's focus on worldbuilding and S...
History class can be so boring! But history doesn't need to be so boring as long as you spice it up with a few extras! We take a look at how Nobunagun makes history badass. ― History collides with modern action in FUNimation's wild action comedy Nobunagun. What better way to get a quick history lesson, than mix it together with some amazing anime? History class can be so boring! A better idea would ...
This month, crowdfunding tales of flashy brawls, undersea dangers, and helpful bats! Plus Nintendo’s new competition, more of The Last Story, and the best video-game gun ever. ― I mentioned Data East's arcade library a while ago. I tried to recall truly amazing Data East games, and I couldn't come up with any besides Boogie Wings. This past week I noticed one more great neglected Data East game. It'...
There's rarely a dull moment in this tale of a rogue Game Development Club and the hapless wannabe thug they rope into joining their ranks. ― Some people take their games more seriously than others, be they boardgames, video games, or old-fashioned role-playing. The girls in this particular Game Development Club take it a step further – they live their games, and not just in a LARPing sense. All of t...
The man behind some of anime's biggest science fiction - Psycho-Pass 2, Mardock Scramble and more - has been handed the reins to Ghost in the Shell. We talked with Tow Ubukata about his career, the challenges of taking over a huge franchise, and more. ― Tow Ubukata is one of Japan's premier science fiction novelists and screenwriters, known for his work on Mardock Scramble, Le Chevalier D'Eon, Fafner...
Justin makes the transition from fan to professional in the only way he could: subtitling Japanese softcore on VHS. ― Welcome to “Tales of the Industry,” a column where we will share stories from real working professionals in the anime business. This week, we return to an autobiographical story by the author. Are you a current or former member of the anime business or convention staff? Do you have a...
Fantastic Detective Labyrinth combines a lot of genres in a bid to be an interesting mash-up of mystery and fantasy, but someone during production got lost along the way. ― There are times when the title of the series is just too ambitious for what it turns out to be. Fantastic Detective Labyrinth is one of them. Based on the manga of the same title by Meito Manjo and Seiji Wakayama, the plot limps a...
