In the spirit of the World Cup, Mike digs through the wide world of soccer anime & manga to find his eleven best, most compelling, occasionally downright weirdest players for a winning team. ― You just can't separate anime from soccer. I'm not just saying this because we're right in the midst of the pageantry and drama and sporting skill of another World Cup, but because it's literally true—and it cu...
"Even if the storytelling and character development is relatively messy throughout this episode, the conclusion pays off so successfully that it elevates the entire experience."
This female-driven spinoff of the Saint Seiya manga requires little prior knowledge as an exciting new adventure begins. Rebecca Silverman has the details. ― Despite the dual facts that the original Saint Seiya manga ended in 1990 and that a direct sequel series (Saint Seiya: Next Dimension) has been running since 2006, Saint Seiya: Saintia Sho can also be termed a direct sequel to the original manga...
GOOOOOOOOAAAAL! Bust out the vuvuzelas, because it's time for some anime fútbol favorites to celebrate this year's main event! ― The World Cup is currently underway in Russia, and fans around the globe have been biting their nails as upset after upset showed how the underdog can pull ahead in a dramatic way. One of the biggest examples so far is Mexico's win against Germany, a first for the European...
One of the most influential manga of all time is out in a fancy new edition! Rebecca Silverman breaks down what's aged well about Go Nagai's classic—and what hasn't. ― If you've read any dark shounen or seinen action series written after 1973, you've probably seen the influence of Go Nagai's original Devilman manga. While it may not be the first of its kind, it certainly has been a major tone-setter ...
Yen Press recently gave away the newest volume of their hit light novel series Overlord - not the first volume, the most recent one. What was the thinking behind this? Deb gets into it. ― Q: Why is Yen Press offering the latest digital volume of the Overlord light novel series for free (at least on Amazon and B&N)? I was rather surprised to get an email last night from Amazon showing a $0.00 price. ...
Heroes like All Might and Endeavor are clearly comfortable in the spotlight, but what about the professionals who save lives on a more low-key level? Kirsten Carey shines a light on some Heroes who deserve a little more love. ― Like the vast majority of shounen, My Hero Academia focuses on a group of protagonists wanting to become the best at something. In this case, it's becoming the Number One Hero...
Our user rankings begin to settle into their final form as the spring season slows in its final weeks. Find out where your favorites rank this week! ― Our team of reviewers are following 27 anime series of the Spring 2018 season and readers are rating each episode as the reviews go up. So let's have a look at what ANN readers consider the best (and worst) of the season. Keep in mind that these ranki...
This fujoshi-driven romcom tries to roll with its premise in good fun, but its choices may be too short-sighted and mean-spirited to appeal to everyone. Rebecca Silverman gets into it. ― Kiss Him, Not Me, based on the manga of the same name by Junko, is a bit problematic at its core. Not only does it at first blush rely on the tired old trope of the girl losing weight and her glasses and suddenly bec...
After his town was attacked by a mysterious giant weapon, high school student Soya Kuroi got drawn into the fight alongside a girl in Gothic Lolita clothing and a cat-like life-form against a team of seven heroes. ― Planet With Official Website: http://planet-with.com/ Introduction Characters Cast & Staff Gallery Premieres on July 8, 2018 (JST) Key Staff Director: Youhei Suzuki ("Urara Meirocho (TV)...

This week, Michelle and Jacob discuss their favorite (and least favorite...
Trigger's Kill la Kill is going to be a videogame! Heidi has all the details, for better and worse. PLUS: Street Fighter V lootboxes, Mario Tennis and wild speculation about who will be in the next Smash! ― Well, it's that post-E3 lull time. There are a couple of new releases and a smattering of news bits, but it's kind of a recovery period for players and media folks alike. That doesn't mean that no...
This reimagining of Shakespeare's history plays begins as Richard struggles to cope with the loss of Henry and darker forces begin creeping out of the shadows. Rebecca Silverman has the details. ― I've read the history of England's War of the Roses, and I've read the Shakespeare history plays Aya Kanno is basing Requiem of the Rose King on, Henry VI (all parts) and Richard III. But it is Kanno's mang...
