Tuesday’s Top 5: Isekai Stories

With my current light novel fixation and the majority of these being isekai stories I decided to look at some of my favourite isekai anime. Now this list started with just being set in another world and then clearly made a distinction of stories where someone starts in one world and crosses to another (which … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Isekai Stories

Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime Guys with Black Hair

Last week we did the list of top 5 anime females with black hair focussing on the cool beauties of the anime world. This week my attention shifts to the male characters and I think my main focus here was focussed and dependable. That said, there are an enormous number of males with ebony hair … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime Guys with Black Hair

Sword Art Online Ordinal Scale Movie Review

Overview: Yeah, there's a new game using augmented reality rather than virtual reality that Asuna and all of Kirito's friends are into. But like every other game in this series it has just a little bit of a catch. Review: As you may have picked up from my series review of Sword Art Online yesterday, … Continue reading Sword Art Online Ordinal Scale Movie Review

Sword Art Online Season 1 Series Review

Before I get into the review today, I just want to have a minor celebration as this is my 150th anime series review (admittedly, I am counting the SAO abridged series review that I did so maybe this is actually review 149). Whichever way, I was tossing up between SAO and Psycho Pass but I … Continue reading Sword Art Online Season 1 Series Review

Sword Art Online Abridged Series Review

Overview: Sword Art Online Abridged is a parody series of Sword Art Online from Something Witty Entertainment over on YouTube. The story is essentially the same but the show has been recut with scenes removed, and it has an entirely new dub. Review: It is odd that I'm reviewing the abridged version of SAO before … Continue reading Sword Art Online Abridged Series Review

Tuesday’s Top 5: Fight Sequences

I thought this list would be pretty easy but then I ended up with a short list so long I couldn't even begin to figure out where to go from there so I've narrowed the field. This is my choice of top 5 fight sequences that involve a blade of some description. So magic fights, … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Fight Sequences

Friday’s Feature: Discussing Sequels, Prequels and Spin-Offs

When it came to movies, I was always wary of sequels growing up. It was more or less universally accepted that the sequel would be weaker than the original with a few exceptions (which of course proved the rule). I was less aware of prequels until the Star Wars franchise essentially hacked the heart out … Continue reading Friday’s Feature: Discussing Sequels, Prequels and Spin-Offs

Tuesday’s Top 5: Christmas Focussed Episodes

I was the day late with Halloween so I decided I'd do Christmas episode a little bit earlier. When narrowing down the list I decided to stick with shows where I just enjoyed the Christmas episode rather than found it a bit of a tag on annoyance. That said, Christmas isn't as pervasive in anime … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Christmas Focussed Episodes

Tuesday’s Top 5: Annoying Anime Tropes

While we all know that there are some clichés in anime that just won't go away (girl running to school with toast in mouth, guy falling on girl and hand accidentally landing...) we all have to admit there are some tropes that we just wish would disappear. This is my list of the 5 common … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Annoying Anime Tropes

Friday’s Feature: The Cycle of Love and Hate For An Anime

I think most people can agree that one of the biggest appeals of anime is that it covers so many different genres. There is literally an anime for everyone (if they look long enough) and an anime on pretty much any topic you can think of - and probably a few topics you have to … Continue reading Friday’s Feature: The Cycle of Love and Hate For An Anime
