Sword Art Online II heads to Toonami

Prepare to enter Gun Gale Online! The wildly popular, Sword Art Online will be showing its second season on Toonami next month, starting on March 28th. I was actually really late to the whole SAO game, but now that I've caught up, I can honestly call myself a fan. If you haven't had a chance to watch the first season, you have a little over a month to get caught up!

Week Ender - Presidents Edition

It's President's Day weekend in the US and I only know that because my brother who is in high school has a day off while I have to go learn Japanese. So why don't we have endings with presidents? What I really mean are presidents of student council in Anime.

So with this flimsy excuse of a theme to make a selection of anime endings, have a look at the stuff I prepared below. Enjoy!

Annotated Anime: Kantai Collection episodes 5-6 photo
Annotated Anime: Kantai Collection episodes 5-6
by Josh Tolentino

Kantai Collection has an identity crisis. It's trying to split the difference between a splashy, substance-free fan-service fiesta for existing fans of the game it's based on, a more sedate genre piece featuring girls being way too nice to each other, and a weighty war drama befitting the violent and arguably tragic history of the real-life warships the characters channel the souls of.

That's been the apparent narrative of the show's in the first four episodes, as the sudden and unexpected loss of Kisaragi in episode three threw many expectations for a loop. Followed up with the overwhelming antics of episode four, no one was sure just where the pendulum would swing in the following episodes.

Now that we've approached the halfway mark, though, it seems that Kan Colle has picked its path.

Annotated Anime: Gundam Build Fighters Try episode 17 photo
Annotated Anime: Gundam Build Fighters Try episode 17
by Josh Tolentino

It's worth pointing out that among many similarities to other episodes in the series, this week's installment of Build Fighters Try is the second time they've spent the opening minutes on the puppy-love angle between Fumina, Sekai, Gyanko, and now Shia. As a fan of cute, dumb things, I can't help but like it, and anyone looking to Build Fighters for a serious war drama has long since been frightened off, so there's no problem there.

What IS a problem, though, is having sound effects in the opening sequence. Why do you do these things, Sunrise? When David Production did it to the openings for JoJo's Bizarre Adventure late into the Battle Tendency arc I thought it was just some kind of rookie mistake, but you've been making Gundam for several decades now. You should know better!
