Friday’s Feature: What Genre Is That?

As kids, when we first start watching anime, we kind of get the impression it is all giant robots and lots and lots of fighting (or magical girls, which are much the same except that they'll hit you with sparkly hearts instead of a sword and the results will be more or less identical). For … Continue reading Friday’s Feature: What Genre Is That?


30 Day Anime Challenge: Day 7

Here we are at Day 7 and we are looking at my favourite animation studio. Given I've done two top 5 lists on specific studios it is probably pretty clear who I'm going to pick. Definitely Studio Bones. If you missed my top 5 fun series from Bones you should definitely check out that post. … Continue reading 30 Day Anime Challenge: Day 7

Brave 10 Episode 4

Review: We start this episode with random new character who is clearly after whatever the widget is at the shrine (and based on previous anime I was guessing he was going to turn out to be Masamune and that's confirmed by the end of the episode). We don't spend a lot of time with him … Continue reading Brave 10 Episode 4

30 Day Anime Challenge: Day 6

Day 6 is tricky because I actually don't have a favourite ending theme song. I am going to pick an anime that I really liked what they did with the ending theme and that is Inu x Boku SS. Each episode had an ending theme that featured a different character and some of these songs … Continue reading 30 Day Anime Challenge: Day 6

KADO Episode 11

Review: After episodes 9 and 10, I was starting to really worry about where this show was going for a conclusion. I'm still not 100% sold that this is going to end well, but episode 11 definitely made me hopeful that I should have high expectations. Part of what helped was Shindo's approach in this … Continue reading KADO Episode 11

Haikyuu Episode 50

Review Episode 50: Haikyuu has this issue with season endings. Season 1 ended on a low note for the team and a point that would have driven me crazy if season 2 wasn't sitting ready to go. Season 2 has ended on a high note for the team but we didn't get to the end … Continue reading Haikyuu Episode 50

30 Day Anime Challenge: Day 5

Right, day 5: Favourite anime opening theme song. I'm going to cheat and give two answers to this. Mostly because there's the opening theme I've been in love with for a fairly long time and then there is a more recent one which I really love but I'm not sure how I'll feel about it … Continue reading 30 Day Anime Challenge: Day 5
