The Official AniTAY Fall 2018 Sequel Guide The Official AniTAY Fall 2018 Sequel Guide

Fall, leaves, fall; die, flowers, away; Lengthen night and shorten day; Every leaf speaks bliss to me Fluttering from the autumn tree. I shall smile when wreaths of snow Blossom where the rose should grow; I shall sing when night’s decay Ushers in a drearier day.* Oh! Hi! I didn´t see you coming since I was too busy reading…

Toonami's Expansion is Potentially Awesome, But Might Crash and Burn Toonami's Expansion is Potentially Awesome, But Might Crash and Burn

Ever since coming back from the dead in 2012, Toonami has been a fixture on Saturday nights on Adult Swim. The greatest action block ever created that’s been building you a better cartoon show for 20 years has grown significantly since its revival to become a fixture on the Adult Swim half of Cartoon Network.

Koda's Summer 2018 Anime Progress Report Koda's Summer 2018 Anime Progress Report

What a shocking surprise, I yet again set a deadline for myself, and yet again I ended up passing it. Seems to be a running theme this year. Anyways, no excuse for it this time, I plain and simply ended up running a few weeks behind on some of the shows I was watching and ended up putting this article off to instead…

Aether's Favorite Anisongs from Spring 2018 - Extremely Late Edition Aether's Favorite Anisongs from Spring 2018 - Extremely Late Edition

It’s hard to believe it has been about five months since I wrote my first post highlighting my favorite anisongs of last season. A lot has happened since then and have been spending most of last month catching up last season and keeping up with the latest simuldubs this season. I took a leap of faith on VRV last month…

Finding an Unexpected Spirit Animal in iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls Finding an Unexpected Spirit Animal in iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls

Dreams come in all shapes and sizes, but the bigger ones are the hardest to get a handle on. Dream too big and your dream might be unachievable. A particular case from an anime that I hold near and dear to my heart has been on my mind for about a year now. I noticed that I have (and sometimes still do) fallen into a…

Overlord S3.8 review: A Overlord S3.8 review: A

If we didn’t get any of Foresight’s story, this episode would have been far more palatable. However, it would have also lost out on much of its impact, even if said impact was heavily manipulated by the directorial choices this episode.

Stínolez's study: Anime influence Stínolez's study: Anime influence

There have been a lot of studies on the relationship between human behaviour and the media. Most of them are usually concerned more with negative effects such as causing violence or some other behaviour disorders like eating disorder to name at least one. Today, I’d like to talk more about positive effects the media…

The 10 Anime of Summer 2018 You Should Be Watching The 10 Anime of Summer 2018 You Should Be Watching

It’s that time of the anime season, folks. Having collectively watched an unholy amount of anime this summer, the AniTAY community has once again taken on the mighty task of collectively deciding which shows we like (and don’t like, but you won’t hear about those here) and compiled them into a handy list.

KOTOR 2 Has a Lot in Common With This Anime KOTOR 2 Has a Lot in Common With This Anime

I often rewatch certain episodes of the anime Rurouni Kenshin. The Shishio arc is one of my favorite seasons in anime. I was watching it the other day and I started to notice things. Maybe it’s because I’ve been immersing myself in the game lately, but I began to wonder of the writer of KOTOR 2, Chris Avellone, is an…

Captain Earth's Most Enduring Influence? The Crepes Captain Earth's Most Enduring Influence? The Crepes

Captain Earth was a mecha show from 2014 by Studio Bones, hyped due to their past pedigree with other mecha series like Eureka Seven and Star Driver. It was gorgeous, it was a mess, good but not quite great, and I liked it overall. So its biggest contribution to my life was, of course, an episode with crepes.

Koda's Spring 2018 Anime Favorites Koda's Spring 2018 Anime Favorites

Sorry for the...rather long delay. That’s what unfortunately happens when the perfect storm of being extremely busy at work and waiting for a certain show to finally end barrels down upon me and wrecks anything remotely resembling any sort of plans I had in terms of a timetable for getting this out before being…

AniTAY Has Made It AniTAY Has Made It

A few days ago, one of the most prominent ani-tubers out there, akidearest, put out a video attempting to replicate one of Food Wars!’s most iconic dishes: The bacon-wrapped mashed potatoes loaf of gloriousness, the “Gotcha” pork roast. A task like that, however, requires a recipe. Where could one get that from?

I Cry Every Time: Slam Dunk Episode 44 I Cry Every Time: Slam Dunk Episode 44

This is the first post in new series I’m starting called “I Cry Every Time”, or ICET (Ice-Tea) for short. The goal of this series is to highlight scenes in games, anime, TV shows, movies, books, etc. that have caused me to cry, weep, bawl, or shed a lone tear in response to an emotional state brought upon by the scene…

Rockmandash Reviews: Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms Rockmandash Reviews: Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms

Mari Okada works can be pretty hit-or-miss, but there’s nothing quite like what she brings to the table. Even if the plot itself is amazing or messy, they always manage to provide those rushing feels, regardless of if you loved the work or hated it. It’s a feeling that can be easily addicting, but what happens when…

Dark Aether Invades Anime Expo 2018! (Prologue and Day 1) Dark Aether Invades Anime Expo 2018! (Prologue and Day 1)

After some inspiration hit me last year, I made the decision to finally do something I’ve been wanting to do for years now. This year, I flew to Los Angeles to attend Anime Expo for my very first convention! In what I’m expecting will be a short series, I look back at my journey and reflect on what I did and saw, but…

My Love for a Song Went to Wholly Unexpected Places My Love for a Song Went to Wholly Unexpected Places

In Todd in the Shadow’s best-hits-of-2016 videos, while spotlighting Mike Posner’s “I Took A Pill In Ibiza”, he related his “weird relationship” to the song, with the realization that Mike Posner might have seen his review of it. Well, against all probability, I’m now finding myself with something similar.

The Theme for Gintama OP 3 Is a Breezy Alt-Rock Highlight The Theme for Gintama OP 3 Is a Breezy Alt-Rock Highlight

I’ve only seen Gintama in fits and spurts, happening upon it as my girlfriend watches it or has me see highlight great episodes. That’s still been more than enough to hear a decent selection of opening and closing themes. This one in particular immediately caught my attention on first exposure.

I Was (Mostly) Wrong About The Future Diary I Was (Mostly) Wrong About The Future Diary

Generally, anime is often filed into that category of “if it looks bad, just leave it be” since there are more productive things to do with free time such as isolating myself from the rest of society as I build Gundam models or go hiking in the woods. However, there is a rare bird that flies through the window that…
