Although it is a weak season, the anime that do shine this winter are shining very brightly. In fact, there is one show that may stand as one of the all-time great anime! Don't believe me? Read on, and let me convince you.
Netflix snagged Aijin as an exclusive for their streaming service, so it's only available to those who can't wait for legal streaming. The bonus for waiting so long for Aijin is that it will be available in the original Japanese and an English dub. I know nothing more about Ajin than the trailer I have seen, but the hype is positive for it. I'll definitely talk about it if it lives up to the buzz.
3D CG has come a long, long way. At a certain point in anime's history. anime fans wouldn't even spit in the general direction of a CG show. Now, they look very impressive. Bubuki Buranki (BBK/BRNK) is an action show that just happens to be full CG. BBK/BRNK is about a family that is separated because of the powerful mecha known as Burakni. We meet the main character as a child, and years later, he is part of a team who wield Bubuki, which are parts of a Buranki. This does not rank in the best of winter 2016 because its most impressive in action, but not compelling in other respects.
This is a weird show. Very weird. Dagashi Kashi is about a sweets shop in Japan. Kokonotsu (AKA "Coconuts") Shikada is the son of the owner, Dagashi, and his father wants him to take over the family business. Then comes Hotaru. Hotaru wants Dagashi to come work for her father, but Kokonotsu has to take over the shop. This is how the weirdness begins. Hotaru, ample chested, is also incredibly well-versed in Japanese sweets, so she goes on rants about every single item in the shop. That's it. That's what this show is. I like it only because it's so uniquely odd.
Whenever gamers think of the best heroines, some may look at Samus, Lara Croft, or even Bayonetta as the epitome of what a heroine is, mainly because they have a badass mentality. Well, sometimes you don't need to be a
Growing up, I never had a powerful PC, so the majority of my multiplayer gaming took place on a couch next to my friends. In those days of Mario Kart 64 and Goldeneye, a split screen meant that every player's
It's not easy this day to be elected into office. You try to be the good guy, say the right things, and make fine promises that you can not only keep, but will be beneficial for people in the long
Tab 1 Tab 2 Tab 3 First tab content pane. Second tab content pane. Third tab content pane. Puzzle-platforming games tend to go one of two ways with their mechanics: Quantity or quality. A Boy and His Blob certainly meets the conditions for quantity, but
Telltale games have always been set in familiar universes and often featured appearance by familiar characters. The Walking Dead: Michonne - A Telltale Miniseries however, creates a new kind of landmark by being the first to cast the player in
You find yourself regaining consciousness in a dark and dirty basement. All facts on your life -- including your name -- are wiped from your memory. All you have to go by is a word that's been written on your
Every time I play a Yakuza game, my heart aches. It's been nearly nine years since I've been to Japan, and yet that single week spent in the Land of the Rising Sun still leaves me yearning to return. Whenever
Trucking simulators have never really appealed to me. The concept of taking goods from one place to another in a video game doesn't exactly scream excitement and sounds more like work than play. Little did I know, all that was
