5 Light Novel adaptations announced in one day – further analysis

The light novel publisher Media Factory, a subsidiary of the publishing conglomerate Kadokawa, announced anime adaptations of 5 of their light novel properties. Usually I cover this sort of stuff in the season preview, but the 5 titles in question all have very noticeable similarities and re-occurring traits. It would be remiss of me not […]

New Ghost in the Shell written by the Mardock Scramble guy

A new Ghost in the Shell was announced recently. No Kenji Kamiyama on it this time though, he’s too busy making surprisingly awesome looking fully CG movies of Cyborg 009. Instead, Production IG have given it to Kazuchika Kise. Looking at his resume, he’s largely only done animation directing. Still though, he was animation director on […]

Hiatus Announcement: Deadlines are approaching fast so I’m really busy at the moment. I’ll be back hopefully on the 15th I posted my season preview a little bit later than usual this season, because I was waiting to see if any other series were announced.

12 Days of Anime #5: The new Berserk fan

Berserk is phenomenal. It may not be my favourite anime of all time, but it’s the ‘best’. Perfection in story-telling beyond anything else I’ve ever seen in anime, or entertainment in general. But I’m never going to write a better post about what happened in Berserk than this one, so that’s not what this post […]

Cat Shit One episode 1

I normally wouldn’t write about something like this until the monthly roundups but I have the feeling that this would otherwise fall under the radar of your average anime fan. So I’m here trying to spread the word. Cat Shit One’s first episode has been released and subbed. It’s also pretty good and well worth […]
