Another week, another set of first looks and knee-jerk reactions to newly announced or released teasers in the realms of nerdery.
Starting today, ElectricSistaHood is bringing you the first look at the newest video games, anime and comic books. Every Sunday, we'll compile news (and pics) of some of the newest stuff out there and give you a frESHlook at it – and I'll let you know what I think of them too.
No Game No Life follows Sora and his stepsister Shiro, who are better known under their moniker "Blank," the best gamer duo on the planet. After being undefeated at just about everything under the sun, a mysterious challenge appears to them for a game
These days card games have become more fun and mainstream, thanks to the likes of Cards Against Humanity, Munchkin, and Apples to Apples. However it's when you get to hone some improv skills when the card game genre enters a
After a young child unlocks a friendly ghost creature, they becomes entrusted with a special watch that helps him seek out mischievous spirits known as Yo-Kai. Once he battles Yo-Kai he can befriend them and use them to take on
How interesting is it that the best licensed-based Japanese fighting games tend to feature some of the least-likely characters to be even considered worthy for battle? Two years ago we were given the well-crafted Aquapazza, which contained people from various
The Disgaea series has always been two things: really funny and really hard. Filled with colorful characters with violent personalities and some of the most nail-biting tactical RPG fights that'd even make a certain Final Fantasy spinoff wince with worry,
It goes without saying that Senran Kagura knows what its audience wants. Filled to the brim with fan-service and crazy combat the series has a knack for delivering certain aspects that appeal to its male demographic (and lesbian one, too,
WHEW! It's hot outside, isn't it? You know what keeps me cool? Anime! OK, and I guess an air conditioner helps. As the fall creeps up on us, and everyone goes back to school, enjoy the best that the Summer season had to offer.
Doumo, Ninja Slayer! We meet again. Ninja Slayer made a lot of anime fans mad. It's an ugly show, for sure, but it's also a great action-comedy. It's a mash-up of the cheapest animation techniques of the 70s-90s. Nearly everyone on the show is some sort of ninja, and they have to greet one another before horribly murdering each other. They call some ninjitsu techniques "karate." It's totally ridiculous, and totally worth watching.
For a show that's not prone to crazy twists and plot developments, Durarara!! still excites and entertains me. With an ever-growing cast (Izaya has family? What the hell??) Durarara!! doesn't seem to be crushed under the weight of its own story. It's funny that Izaya has, from my eye, the greatest character development this season. I have learned to see where he's coming from, but also hate his guts twice as much as I used to!
I am not one to watch shows about warfare in the times of horses and warfare. I could not resist the pull of Arslan. The Heroic Legend of Arslan is about a young prince who is driven from his home by a force who wishes to take the throne. With his parents both at the mercy of these invaders, Arslan has to gather an army to take back his home. The Heroic Legend of Arslan is riveting. There is all this plotting and scheming and hard decisions put on the shoulders of a child. It's not only about talking. Nearly every episode has some action in it, and it can be very brutal. I can see why the story has been adapted again and again.
Previously on I Can't Understand what My Husband is Saying, our married couple have reached a very big milestone in their lives. Their big life change isn't really focused on until the end of the season, but that's fine. I'm just here for the characters' otaku Vs. normal person relationship and the people who are part of their wedded life.
I can't stop laughing. I don't think there's been a ho-hum episode of My Love Story!! The anime is about a high school boy who thinks he's going to always be unlucky in love. He's a giant mass of a high school student who isn't all that bright who finds out that a very tiny girl loves him. Tagging along is his life-long, unfazed, handsome friend. If you haven't watched My Love Story!! yet, please, please catch up! This one of the best romantic comedy anime of ALL TIME. I am so serious.
The summer season has started, but you may still be wondering what's out there to watch. Here is every PV or trailer for the new shows debuting across the net. (Note: Funimation and/or Hulu links will be updated as they show up.)
