Tuesday’s Top 5: Ordinary Anime Characters Who Inspire

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. While I have nothing against the longer running anime brethren, the anime I rewatch most often meets the condition … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime That Only Have One Season

Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime Characters with a Tragic Backstory

Are there any anime protagonists who have a happy backstory? Because that might be something a bit different given the sheer number of characters who come from a past of misery and despair. Okay, I hadn't really thought about what I was in for when I started drafting this list and to be honest, it … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime Characters with a Tragic Backstory

Angel Beats Series Review: What Do You Live For?

Overview: Another anime I cannot believe I haven't already reviewed given how many times I've used this one as an example.

Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime That Make Me Cry

I'm sure all anime fans have a favourite series out there that they enjoy just because it hits them hard every time they watch it. That show, and that moment, that has you breaking down into tears. It isn't a feeling I seek out all that often but every now and then it is exactly … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime That Make Me Cry

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?

Tuesday’s Top 5: Females with Silver Hair

Okay, I've already covered blonde, red and blue hair so today I am tackling silver hair (though I won't argue if you want to tell me some of these characters have white or gray hair). Next week I'll share me list of the guys with silver hair and I had a lot more fun with … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Females with Silver Hair

Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime from P.A. Works

While P.A. Works doesn't excite me as much as BONES when looking for anime to watch, I have to admit, over the years P.A. Works have definitely been responsible for some of my favourite anime - and some that I'm not so fond of. Today I'm listing my favourite 5. No real criteria other than … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime from P.A. Works

Tuesday’s Top 5: Supernatural Anime

I am a big fan of horror and supernatural stories in general and I do love a good horror or supernatural anime (for the sake of this list I've excluded stories that deal with Japanese folklore as that is going to be a whole other list at some point). So this list is my top … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Supernatural Anime

Friday’s Feature – Product Placement in Anime

Before we start, I'm going to make it clear I'm not analysing the positives or negatives of product placement in entertainment or whether or not they are effective. I'm certain plenty of other people have deconstructed this and probably did a better job than I would so I'm just going to leave that alone. A … Continue reading Friday’s Feature – Product Placement in Anime
