Revolutionary Girl Utena Ultra Edition Revolutionary Girl Utena Ultra Edition

Under normal circumstances I generally don’t lean towards the uber edition releases of games or movies because it’s generally been my experience that they usually aren’t worth the extra dough. For nearly double the cover price you usually only get a fancy cardboard box, some postcards and maybe a 20-page booklet that…

Jump Force Made Its E3 2018 Premiere in the Most Surreal Manner Possible Jump Force Made Its E3 2018 Premiere in the Most Surreal Manner Possible

Anime in America, for the last several decades, has been playing the long game, slowly but surely crawling closer to the mainstream. As someone who was a fan back when it was still significantly more niche by orders of magnitude, this has been gratifying, yet also weird. Jump Force has brought those sentiments on…

Steins;Gate 0 reminds me to move on Steins;Gate 0 reminds me to move on

We get the sense that, although Rintaro’s still grieving, he’s slowly coming to terms with everything and learning to move on. We all have to eventually.

The character backstories were very much needed, but they feel very much like simple one-liners that serve as a starting point for writing, not as the final product.

The Ode (and Gallery) to How Sword Art Online Alternative Gun Gale Online Sometimes Gets Super Goofy The Ode (and Gallery) to How Sword Art Online Alternative Gun Gale Online Sometimes Gets Super Goofy

The mainline Sword Art Online is not especially known for its comedy. It constantly takes itself pretty seriously, in fact. Most stupidly named spinoff ever Sword Art Online Alternative Gun Gale Online, on the other hand, is occasionally...not that.

Reflecting on Running My First-Ever Panel at a Convention Reflecting on Running My First-Ever Panel at a Convention

For years, I’ve seriously desired hosting a panel at an anime or video game convention. Sheer nervousness, impostor’s syndrome, and the feeling that I never had a good enough hook worth pursuing, however, always kept me hesitant. I finally broke the spell last weekend, at the Castle Point Anime Convention.

Excitement for the melodramatic Excitement for the melodramatic

Mari Okada’s directorial film debut, Maquia – When the Promised Flower Blooms, is going to be screened in Canada on July 20th (the same day as that it’ll screen in America) and I, for one, am very excited.

Two weekends ago, on Saturday May 19 and Sunday May 20, my girlfriend and I attended the Stevens Institute of Technology Anime Club-run (though not Stevens campus hosted, starting just this year) Castle Point Anime Convention. We had a great time!

While the showcase of why the villains choose to live in Mobius was desperately needed, its execution was sloppy as hell and wastes the show’s premise.

Koda’s Spring 2018 Anime Progress Report Koda’s Spring 2018 Anime Progress Report

Better late than never, it is time to check in on where the 17 shows I am watching week to week currently stand with me. I originally intended for this to be done within the last two weeks, but a very untimely back injury sidelined me during that time, preventing me from dedicating the time necessary to get this…

I wanted to like this episode so much, but there were too many times when I just wondered “wtf are the writers thinking?!”

Well isn’t this a quick turn around? Ok, not really, the simple truth is the crate that was originally meant for March finally arrived...in god damn May. The theme for this crate is Brave and focuses around series where the main characters have to be brave in the face is ridiculous odds. The represented series are…

Loot Anime Episode 28: Tech Unboxing Loot Anime Episode 28: Tech Unboxing

Right, so I honestly have no real excuses for why this particular unboxing article is more than two months late. Between a combination of just being too busy some weeks and being too apathetic other weeks, the creation of this article was long in the making. Even more unexescuable however is how, somehow in that more…

The Kino's Journey ED, the Waltz of Its World The Kino's Journey ED, the Waltz of Its World

The original 2003 anime of Kino’s Journey is a seriously cerebral and fantastic series. Kino, in all her stoic, meditative, badass glory, is even one of my outright favorite characters in the entirety of anime. And both of them are served a worthy tribute by way of its ending theme.

Here is your first look at the opening movies for Persona 3 Dancing Moon Night and Persona 5 Dancing Star Night. They will be released in Japan on May 24th for the PS4 and PS Vita.
