Winter Anime 2015 First Impressions: Luck and Logic, Dimension W and some sequels

Winter Anime 2015 First Impressions: Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu, Dagashi Kashi and even more shorts

Scamp’s Top 10 Anime of 2015

This was a very difficult list to compile. In previous years the final list usually picked itself with little issue. In fact even as I’m writing this intro I still don’t know the proper order between 3 and 7. It’s been a year full of anime that really struck a chord with me even while […]
