Broly's original trilogy in Dragon Ball's film lore was, to put it mildly, uninspired. While it had its fair share of laughs and action, it wasn't up to par with some of the more iconic Dragon Ball films like Tree

These days, one would have to attend a legit film festival to bear witness to a collection of short films. Studio Ponoc on the other hand would rather bring the festival to the common person. However this idea for the

Holy shit. I only wish those two words could easily convince someone to watch an anime series, especially one like Made In Abyss. Within its first couple of minutes, before the opening credits even rolled, this world based on Akihito Tsukushi’s

Imagine waking up with a strange condition that no one can find an explanation for. Weird scars appearing on your body, the ability to walk around unnoticed by those around you, or even having a literal doppelgänger take over half

Manga artists take years to conjure up their own unique style. Even then, how they draw evolves as they work from chapter-to-chapter. To see how characters and worlds change for the better, one just needs to look through an art

The supreme beings of Hell have always been portrayed in various ways. From the embodiments of fear & despair to even Saddam Hussein's boyfriend, the Devil has been shown in an array of personalities that have been entertaining in many

Mamoru Hosoda has this knack of bringing the most realistic human action and emotion into all of his animated films. From the trials of single motherhood in Wolf Children to a confused teenager waking up to something mystical in The

The 2015 anime Punch Line was an interesting one to boot. A series about a kid who'd destroy the world if he saw panties is legit one of the silliest ideas for an anime I've ever seen (and that industry

It's no secret that My Hero Academia has grown to become of the most beloved superhero stories of the last decade. Based on Kōhei Horikoshi's original manga series, the tale of a Quirkless boy and his journey to become the

In the summer, you could abandon your TV, forget about your apps, and take a break from anime. Or you could be like me, and watch as many of the summer's anime as possible. We do have some great shows in the summer, so I might  convince you to add a few to your queue.

The Netflix Effect

Netflix picked up some very interesting titles this summer, but we wont be able to see them legally at least until the fall.

Tenrou: Sirius the Jaeger

So, from what I can tell, Sirius the Jaeger is about a secret vampire society at war with humans. It is set in the Japan of the 1930's. The humans have Jaegers, talented killers banded together to eliminate the vampire threat. The action is spectacular, so I am definitely going to add it to my Netflix list.

Juushinki Pandora

What is Juushinki Pandora? It looks like it's about transforming tank mecha fighting giant alien creatures. A nerdy dude with two-toned hair pilots one of these tanks, called the Pandora. I'm up for this, because I'm a bit of a mech head. I don't feel a strong pull towards Pandora, but I'm give it a standard 1 episode viewing.

Baki

Even though I've heard terrible things about it, I still would like to see Baki. Baki is the kind of ridiculous action show that I will watch and be amazed at. Since the original Baki film (30 years ago? More?) Baki has always had a loose definition of what realism is. This is not a supernatural show, but Baki may as well be Jojo's Bizarre Adventure or Fist of the North Star. Expect a lot of maiming, and, I think, murder. This might be the most violent Baki we've ever had.

 

Returning Favorites

Attack on Titan

What is Attack on Titan without its titular monsters? Well, it's still pretty good. I don't know where all the titans are, or why they all decided to stop munching on humans, but they haven't really shown up, and I don't think they will for any episode- unless it's in flashback. You can tell right from the OP that this is going to be a very different season.

My Hero Academia

I love anime. I like superheroes. "Why not both?" My Hero Academia is still the best itch-scratcher that I could possibly ask for. Season 3 continues with the provisional exams, which introduces us to a new set of students with quirks. I wont go any further, because I think that one of the most popular shounen of the decade needs no push.

FLCL

It's back! It's Fooly, it's Cooly, and it has come back to TV after a decade of being away. FLCL Progressive brings a couple characters back from the original show, but the rest of the cast is totally new. It was hard to get used to the new people and new story, but I felt comfortable by the time I watched the second half of the season.
