Tuesday’s Top 5: Sequels

I tend to run sequels down a lot (see Feature Discussing Sequels and Prequels), which is sometimes justified, but occasionally there are sequels, part 2's, and follow ups that actually do add something to a series and are fairly enjoyable to watch. So I decided to think about all the good sequels out there for … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Sequels

Tuesday’s Top 5: Opening Themes in 2016

One of the things most of us remember about an anime series is the opening theme. Whether we loved it or hated it, listened to it every time, or reached for the remote (mouse) to hit the skip. Opening themes set the tone for the entire viewing experience and yet it is another element I … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Opening Themes in 2016

Tuesday’s Top 5: Visually Interesting Anime in 2016

So this week I want to look at the top 5 anime in 2016 that I found visually interesting. As always I'd invite … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Visually Interesting Anime in 2016

Tuesday’s Top 5: Male Characters from 2016

Last week I looked at the female characters from 2016 that left an impression. This week I turn my attention to the guys. I'm going to be honest; this was a much harder list to write. The reason being that female characters still tend to play a lot of support roles and still tend to … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Male Characters from 2016

Reflections on Anime in 2016 – The Best and The Worst of the Year (in my opinion)

It's the first day of the year so let's look back at the year that was.

Okay, with the Winter, Spring and Summer anime seasons more or less done and dusted, I felt it was a good time to look at my favourite anime for the year.

Assassination Classroom Series Review

Okay, I am reviewing the whole of Assassination Classroom here given I never did do a season 1 review and the story just continues across the 2 seasons anyway. Overview: The moon has been blown up but that doesn't really worry the students in E Class as they are the lowest of the low and … Continue reading Assassination Classroom Series Review

Assassination Classroom Episode 47

Also a week late but here it is. Review: This final episode ties up all the loose ends and shows us what happens to all the characters after finally carrying out their assassination.

Assassination Classroom Episode 46

Review: COMPLETE SPOILER ALERT! DO NOT READ ON IF YOU HAVE NOT WATCHED THIS FAR!       Well, you were warned.       They killed him. I'm sitting here, still slightly trembling and fighting the urge to cry, again, and just trying to take in that they actually did it.
