There was no denying that Cells at Work made a splash last season with its cute and boppy opening song, adorable cast of characters (including the unbeatable-in-the-cute-department platelets), and its weird mix of education and entertainment. This was an anime that caught a lot of the community by surprise and week after week it primarily delivered solid fun and cuteness.
If you missed it, earlier today the best of the season came out so if you would rather celebrate the successes of the season than wallow in, or jeer at, the misfires I recommend you check it out. In the meantime, a reminder that worst anime of the season is still an anime good enough … Continue reading Get Your Tomatoes Ready Because Here We Have the Worst Anime of the Summer 2018 Season
Summer has indeed had its ups and downs and to be honest, it is probably the weakest of the seasons 2018 has offered us so far. That doesn't mean it wasn't a whole lot of fun to follow, review, and discuss. However, I did find if a lot harder than normal to narrow down my … Continue reading Drum Roll For The Best of Summer 2018 Anime Announcement
Given I stopped doing episode reviews after episode 4, it should be fairly clear that this anime didn't really do much for me. And normally I would just drop it and call it a day, but I decided to finish watching it. Mostly because the madness of creating an anime season that follows on from … Continue reading Tokyo Ghoul:Re Series Review: This Franchise Demonstrates How Not To Adapt Something

Welcome to the Best of Spring 2018 and while we might say there were slightly leaner pickings this time around, as always it has been fun following the shows with others in the blogosphere and discussing from week to week. Whether that is the discussions around Wixoss, the laughing at Devils' Line, or just being … Continue reading Here It Is! The Results of the Best of Spring 2018 Reader Poll!
Welcome to the Best of Winter 2018 post where we look back on and celebrate everything great about the last season in anime. While we always find things to criticise and nitpick, it is important to remember the great things that anime gives us each season (which would be why we all keep watching season … Continue reading Best of Winter 2018
First of all, I am going to re-explain that 'Worst of' is probably a misleading title for these given this is the worst of the anime I actually watched and when I ask people to vote for their 'worst' anime I ask them to vote for the worst one that they didn't drop. What that … Continue reading Worst of Winter 2018
And this is more or less the final week. There are a few anime still to wrap up and I will do my best and worst of the season post sometime next week, but this is the last overview for this season. I am looking to change the format of these next season though I'm … Continue reading Winter 2018 Week 12
Week 11 has come and gone and left in its wake some bitter feelings (Kokkoku) and some more promising moments (DamePri). That said, some shows maintain their solid quality (March Comes in Like a Lion) whereas other titles maintain their general lack of anything all that praise worthy (Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody). … Continue reading Winter 2018 Week 11
