Returning to Eden of the East

In winter 2009, Nodame Cantabile Paris Chapter was making headlines on ANN about how it was blowing apart records for audience figures watching late night anime in Japan (despite not being as good as the first season).

Samurai Flamenco episode 1 – Mid-life crisis at 24

Top 10 Anime of 2011

2011 was a fairly good year for anime, especially compared to 2010. There was actually strength in depth, rather than a few stand outs hiding a mountain of crap.
