Fate/Apocrypha's second half rolls to an exhilarating conclusion on Netflix. Kim Morrissy sums up the series' highs and lows as a Fate installment. ― It's unfortunate that the international Netflix release of Fate/Apocrypha was split into two parts. After months of waiting between the first and second cours, the second part of Fate/Apocrypha picks up right where the first part left off, sparing no ti...
There are few anime studios with history as gripping as Studio Gainax, the simultaneously exalted and notorious birthplace of Evangelion. Part I explores their humble roots, and their now-legendary debut! ― There are few stories within anime production that are as exciting as the story of Studio GAINAX.

There are some anime released in the US on VHS but never in any other format - are these (and others) worth tracking down? ― Robbie asked: I recently got into collecting records, and I feel like, although it's not as handy as digital music, there's small things about just the act of listening to them that I really enjoy. I wonder, if there's any feeling you get from watching anime the old fashioned ...

While far from the pinnacle of Kyoto Animation's efforts, Phantom World is a fun series that combines fantasy, action, and comedy into an enjoyable ride. Nick Creamer has the details. ― Even from its initial advertising, it was clear that Myriad Colors Phantom World would fall a little outside Kyoto Animation's general slice-of-life/character drama wheelhouse. From its garish color scheme to its loud...
