A Decade of Anime – 2010

The decade that was 2010 - 2019 brought us some amazing anime. Actually, the best thing it did was bring access to current and older anime through legal streaming opening up the doors of anime to a whole new group of viewers. I'm looking at each year in the last decade and picking my favourites from each season. These may not be the technical best anime or the most popular (though they also might be in some cases) but they are the anime that if I had to pick any show from that season to watch again, it would be my first pick. I'd love to know your picks and recommendations from the decade that was. Today's post: 2010.

Tuesday’s Top 5: Ordinary Anime Characters Who Inspire

Tuesday's Top 5

While many an anime character has inspired me, it is worth noting that a lot of anime characters have super powers, or magic, or destiny, or some other force working for them, which makes their actions a little less applicable to the everyday life that most of us lead. This list is to the heroes … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Ordinary Anime Characters Who Inspire

Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime That Only Have One Season

There's something to be said for an anime that can tell a complete story in 11, 12, 22, or 24 episodes and not leave the viewer unsatisfied or waiting for a conclusion that may never occur.
