12 Days of Anime: 1 Battle in the Hot Springs

There are certain ideas I harp on about a lot because I have a limited pool of things to actually write about. One of these is the world that is centered around a certain theme, whether that’s puzzles (Phi Brain), Gunpla Battles (Gundam Build Fighters), or teenagers dying in shitty, hilarious ways (Another). The main […]

12 Days of Anime: 2 series of Mushishi indistinguishable in quality

9 years we’ve waited for this sequel. Well technically I saw it in 2008 so only 6 years for me, but that’s still a pretty long time to wait for the rest of the Mushishi manga to get animated. I bought the first volume of the Mushishi manga but reading that rather than watching the anime […]

12 Days of Anime Day 3: Three Flamenco Girls

Samurai Flamenco has earned the dubious honor of making my 12 Days lists for two years running. But where last year had Mari broken down because of her selfish, heroic desires, this year has her reconciling and/or making out with her groupmates. She eventually becomes a strong character all her own, acting as a tether to reality […]

12 Days of Anime: 4 signs CG anime have a future

Ever since that featureless green box pretending to be a helicopter showed up in Golgo 13 back in 1983, CG animation in Japanese anime have been the butt of many jokes, not least from myself.

… and the faces they make along the way. As I grow older and watch more anime, I’ve felt my tastes and preferences shift bit by bit. On the one end, I can’t help but enjoy a series that really goes for it and is balls out crazy regardless of whether that makes for a […]

12 Days of Anime: 6 Bewitching Witches

  Or why I’m glad a show I really liked had a sextet of great characters, so I could write about something specific without putting together something extremely tangential. Thanks, Witch Craft Works!

12 Days of Anime: 7 minutes of joy each week

When I finally do post my top anime of 2014, I’m sure a few eyebrows will be raised when people see how highly I rank Seki-kun, Master of Killing Time. Which might have something to do with 2014 not being a terribly good year for anime, but I’m a glass half full guy who prefers […]

12 Days of Anime: Eight Friends for the Final Fight

Don’t be cheeky and point out that there are merely seven fists in that screenshot. Reiji’s not onscreen at the moment! I’ve got my bases covered! Gundam Build Fighters is one of my favorite series of the year. It has great robot battles, neat animation, an earnest sense of fun and excitement, and a cast […]
