This is the AMV I made about a year ago! It won best in show at Metrocon! I’ll be starting a new one in time for this year’s Metrocon now that my top 50 blog is out of the way.
I was going to marathon a bunch of weekly episode, but after the credits rolled, I had to gush, just a little bit, about the amazing action sequences that were jam-packed into this episode. We are on the 9th week of Fate/Apocrypha and my impressions are all over the place for the series in general, but this week they all lined up perfectly. Shakespeare would be proud. I mean, look at him! Continue reading
Why am I so fascinated with this little romantic piece of animation? I don’t know. I can already tell it won’t be the end all be all romance anime, but it’s clearly doing something very correctly to have me this excited to talk about this. Talk about what? Talk about SHIPS. There are, by my haphazard count, nine different couples or interests. Continue reading
With double the Shingeki and one half the Naruto, Spring 2017 was a season that I inevitably couldn’t help but write about. The unheard cries of anime fans clamoring for a sequel to Attack on Titan (Shingeki anime number one) are finally getting their prayers answered. In addition, the legendary Naruto is starting a new series with the younger, scrappier Boruto as the main character. While those two definitely caught my interest, it’s the return of Shingeki no Bahamut that had me quivering with anticipation for this season to roll around.
Now every anime season always has a lot more to offer than the blockbuster highlights. That’s why I’m here, returning from a 1 year writing hiatus, to devote my time across a dozen of this season’s new anime. As for what has become tradition, I’m going to put the worst foot forward, and start with the disappointments, then work my way up to the Spring 2017 delights. And spoilers do lurk in the shadows. If you are really curious about the story of episode one, then don’t read past the opening paragraph. The first one’s spoiler free, after that, it’s a minefield. Have fun reading, folks, and it’s good to be back.
Hello folks. I do intend for these to be in the first week of each month, but it was my birthday yesterday. Upon aging another year, I took a breather for a few days! I’m not old yet, reaching the lofty heights of 26, but I definitely feel the extremely early signs of becoming senile. Anyways, here’s the March edition of Anime Fan Art which will basically encompass everything I came across throughout February. For those stopping by for the first time, I get this art from Zerochan where I subscribe to every anime I like. Whenever a new season ends I subscribe to the ones that pleased me which just constantly expands the amount of fan art I see every day. Here’s my personal favorites for your easy perusal. If you want to see more I highly implore you join Zerochan or another like-minded website! Click the image for the full size and there is a link to that artist’s profile in each caption!

We’re now six or seven episodes into each of this season’s selection of anime. Normally at this point, the number of anime I drop roughly equals the number of anime I choose to keep up with. I’m pleased to say that between the ones I dropped during the premieres and the time of writing, I have only dropped one additional anime! That was Prince of Stride, the free-running anime that free-ran out of steam way too quickly for my taste. What is continuing to flutter my fancy with the anime I’m still following includes the gorgeous art of Grimgar, the endearing, yet pulse-pounding Erased, and the masterful, mature Shouwa Genroku. That’s just to name a few. There’s plenty more detailed below! From their current status of worst to best, here’s what I’m still watching this Winter season. Continue reading
I follow Zerochan, an anime art community, quite religiously and I have always wanted to share the artwork I come across. I thought that because others may love anime fan art but don’t have the time to meticulously scour Zerochan’s vaults like I do they would at least like to see what fan art is really worth looking at. So this is a new series I will be posting regularly. Just click on the image to get the full size version and a link to the artist’s page is in each caption. I hope this satisfies some of the art appreciators among my followers.
