Shirobako episode 1 – Drag racing

My favourite part of this episode was the 5 minutes of fake-out at the beginning. You thought it was going to be a story about a bunch of high school girls in a club together being aggressively happy about everything, telling the story of an idealised youth. You know, that same story PA Works have […]

Psycho Pass season 2 episode 1 – Girl Force

At the end of the first season of Psycho Pass, Akane had gone through a pretty significant shift. She had gone from this nervous rookie to a badass who jumped onto the side of moving trucks. Her more naive view of the world was broken but she kept her ideals and continued to fight for […]

Parasyte episode 1 – I have 7 eyes and 8 jaws, nice to meet you

I’m a huge fan of the manga for Parasyte and was cautiously optimistic coming into this anime. One thing I was a little afraid of was whether it would be full of censorship. Body horror is right at the core of Parasyte and stripping that out would diminish the horror these things are supposed to […]

Gundam Build Fighters Try 1 – Imagine a Gif of Me Clapping and Crying During the Credits

Little known fact: I’m actually Orson Welles. Citizen Kane is one of my better films, but don’t sleep on The Lady from Shanghai either. That movie’s weird. I’m also really dope in The Third Man. Know what else is also dope? GUNDAM BUILD FIGHTERS. The show’s first season, which bled over into winter — thus […]

Amagi Brilliant Park Episode 1: Amagi Decent Start

Every once in awhile, I like to imagine that a flash of doubt in its writing occasionally crosses the collective mind of Kyoto Animation. No matter the truth of the matter, there are mutterings that maybe the mighty KyoAni machine might be winding down. So, for the sake of catharsis, they make something like Amagi […]

Garo episode 1 – Sculpted chibi male butts

This is the season of the naked male arses. Mappa started us off with Bahamut ending with a fine piece of dude backside. Even the Fruits de la Harem VN adaptation, which otherwise had more pantyshots than plot points, showed us a full shot of some guy bottom. Then Garo came in, not only with […]

World Trigger episode 1 – Don’t watch this anime

I don’t normally pull the “I watch this so you don’t have to” routine because it comes off as big-headed and insincere, like I’m only watching anime to hate it. You should watch anything that looks like it’s interesting to you and take advice from others on what else is good. That said, I’m going […]

Rage of Bahamut: Genesis episode 1 – Digital trading ginger afros

What do you get if you crossed Samurai Champloo, Pirates of the Caribbean and any generic fantasy story you wish to name? You would get Johnny Depp breakdancing on the back of a dragon. You might also get Rage of Bahamut, the new anime by Mappa based off a digital collectable card game. You can […]
