I have to admit, after how much fun I've had with the Summer anime I was a little worried to look ahead because I didn't know if there would be much in the fall (autumn) season of interest. And I have to admit, from just reading the descriptions of shows, I might be struggling to get a full watch list. Then again, I know that something that looks great on paper is sometimes dreadful to watch and something that seems like it shouldn't work might be amazing, so I'll keep my fingers crossed that once the next season starts I find some great shows to watch.
I'm not the biggest fan of the underdog character arc, mostly because it has been done to death. Yet every now and then a character catches my attention who seems ill suited for their dream or has a lot of baggage standing in their way and for whatever reason I'm drawn into their story. These are my 5 favourite underdog characters in anime, but I'd love to know who your favourites are.
Zombies are a fascinating monster in horror stories however sometimes we get characters who are apparently zombies but very much humanised. Here are my top 5 picks for zombies who have a heart.
I always find it somewhat surprising how many anime are based around fantasy that follows a pseudo medieval kind of look.

Whichever way, there are some very cool anime knights and I know that not all are on my list so feel free to let me know your favourites in the comments.
At some point I am going to have to go through my fairly large catalogue of screen shots and look for the best anime facial expressions ever (or at least most laughably exaggerated) but for now the 2019 Summer season has given us more than enough fodder for a top 5 list. Here are some of the best reaction faces this season has dished up. As always, I'd love to know your favourites so be sure to share in the comments below.
Today I'm looking at the 5 sports anime that while watching I at least entertained the idea of maybe playing the sport on offer. Usually common sense prevailed and I didn't actually go forth and sport however given my recent joining of a volleyball comp I have to question how much anime influences my life choices.
Watching Cop Craft this season got me thinking. I love police procedural stories and I love buddy cop action movies with a bit of comedy and yet I don't come across these kinds of stories in anime very often. Whether it is Bones, Castle, NCIS, Lethal Weapon or any of the myriad of TV shows … Continue reading Top 5 Anime About Police
Fairies are fun to see in stories because there's so many variations and forms on the idea of what a fairy is. From The Seven Deadly Sins to Amagi Brilliant Part, fairies show up over and over again. This list are my favourite appearances of fairies in anime (not necessarily best anime). As always, I'd … Continue reading Top 5 Anime With Fairies
Alright, we've had a plethora of cute anime demon girls showing up recently and they aren't exactly a new trend so today I'd like to count down the 5 demon girls I think are the cutest (keep in mind this is cute not sexy - that would be a very different list). However there are … Continue reading Top 5 Cute Anime Demon Girls
