Throughout all of the messiness, through repetitive missions, tortured sci-fi explanations, and fleeting moments of bittersweet affect, BONES makes damned sure that AO looks consistently great.
Madoka Magica: Rebellion blasts the franchise sky high, which results in an experience about as satisfying and horrifying as that sounds. It demands to be seen by fans of the series, although not necessarily enjoyed.
It's time for imports with God Eater 2, Metal Max 4, and a robot war that we don't even bother numbering. Plus Bravely Second, Granblue Fantasy, and the way that anime should embrace old games.
Mobile Suit Gundam the Origin is an engaging, intense read that speaks to the reason why the franchise has been able to exist for so long – it has a solid base. These first three books deliver that along with solid science fiction storytelling, making them seriously good literary entertainment.
This week, a unique erotic historical fiction film that has completely slipped through the cracks.
This anime bravely steps forward to take on some challenging ideas ... and falls completely flat on its face.
This week, a show about murder, gore, and the "other"; a show about ... more murder and gore, and one about luck.
