Dustin finds warmth, comfort, and a surprising amount of fun in the action-RPG Tokyo Xanadu. PLUS: The SNES Classic rears its head, Final Fantasy XV goes off-road and much more! ― I bought a New 3DS XL last week. I'd hoped to ride out the remainder of the 3DS' life on my original XL, and assumed that Nintendo would be dropping the handheld-only brand like a hot potato once it became clear the Switch ...
The legendary artist behind one of the most beloved manga in history shares his secrets in a fascinating new book - we had a few questions for him! ― You may know him best as the creator of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, but there's more to Hirohiko Araki than that one series. Araki began actively attempting to publish manga in high school, pursuing his chosen career relentlessly before finally breaking t...
Justin Sevakis offers his take on this ambitious and heartfelt film about the daily life of a young artist in a port city near Hiroshima during WWII. ― When I first heard about In This Corner Of The World, I was not excited. Another tear-jerker WWII anime? I thought. We'd already had two Barefoot Gen films, Giovanni's Island, Who's Left Behind?, Rail of the Star and a handful of others, to say nothin...
This is the story of the energetic and adorable days the Logicalists-in-training spend together. It's time to Trance! ― Hina Logic - from Luck & Logic Official Website: http://hinalogic.com/ Twitter: @HinaLogic Introduction Characters Cast & Staff Gallery On air starting July 1st, 2017 Streaming available at: Crunchyroll Key Staff Director: Hiroaki Akagi ("Hetalia The Beautiful World" (TV) as Episod...
Natsume's Book of Friends climbs to the top of the charts, and the middle of the pack begins a mad shuffle as the spring season enters its last couple weeks. ― Our team of reviewers are following 27 anime series of the Spring 2017 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 th...
It can strike when you least expect it: absolute anime burnout! Justin shares his tips for getting out of an otaku slump. ― Michael asks: For about three years, I watched a lot more anime than I ever had before. It was pretty much the only media I was consuming and it wouldn't be uncommon for me to be watching eight to ten shows at the same time. Well, as it happens when you overdo it, I got burned ...
The summer anime season is right around the corner - from Welcome to the Ballroom to Made In Abyss, here are the shows our reviews crew is most excited for! ― After a blockbuster spring, the summer season is right around the corner, so we asked our reviews crew which shows they're most looking forward to. Keep an eye out for our Best & Worst of Spring 2017 on Friday June 30th, and then the Summer 201...
Is this under-the-radar idol boy show from last year worth a second look? Nick Creamer explains just what's so special about Starmyu. ― Starmyu offers a fairly unusual premise among musical anime. In a sea of shows focused specifically on idols, Starmyu instead presents a high school and special division focused on musical theater, where a student's ability to dance, sing, and also present a characte...
As This Week in Anime changes gears for the next season, Nick and Micchy say their goodbyes to all the good boys in Attack on Titan, Berserk, and Love Rice, as other shows soldier on into the summer! ― Previous Weeks in Anime Week 1 - Week 2 - Week 3 - Week 4 - Week 5Week 6 - Week 7 - Week 8 - Week 9 Nicholas Dupree got into anime in high school, and manga even earlier. From One Piece to The Promised...
This spinoff of the beloved tactical RPG series Valkyria Chronicles tries to live up to the sterling reputation of its predecessors, but Dustin finds it might fall a little short. ― Valkyria Revolution is told through the pages of history books. A young historian sets out to find the truth about the Five Traitors who led the nation of Jutland to revolution for their own selfish ends, and with the hel...
just for fun
He's the rowdiest convention goer the Enchanted Grove Comic-Con has ever seen, and he might be in really big trouble... ―
Gangsta's dark story gets off to an intriguing start before things start to go wrong. Rebecca Silverman digs deeper. ― In ancient Rome, ergastula were pits specifically meant to hold unruly slaves or to punish misbehaving ones. In Gangsta., Ergastulum (the singular form of the word) is a city in an unnamed country that may as well be a pit trap intended to punish the wicked. The world that Worrick, A...
Justin gets into some of the many reasons why an anime might jump to a different production studio between seasons. ― Jun asks: I noticed that sometimes a show with multiple seasons have different studios working on them. For instance, the first season of My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU is produced by studio Brain's Base while the second season was handled by studio feel. Why does this happen sometime...
Is this forgotten magical girl romcom from the '90s trash or treasure? Find out after the jump, along with a rundown of all this week's anime releases and a very Maison Ikkoku Shelf Obsessed! ― I live on the second floor of an apartment building, so it's always surprising when one of the neighborhood cats appears on my tiny balcony. I'm not sure if it somehow climbs the fire escape ladder or just ju...
Before its anime adaptation airs next season, is this isekai series worth reading? Rebecca Silverman has the answers. ― If you've ever wondered what exactly Konosuba is making fun of rather than mere genre specifics, take a peek at Patora Fuyuhara's In Another World with My Smartphone. That's not to say that this series is precisely the basis for Natsume Akatsuki's parody, but it is certainly closer ...
