Impressions: Gundam The Origin I: Blue-Eyed Casval

Annotated Anime: Gundam Build Fighters Try episodes 18-20

More Final Fantasy XV footage than you can shake a phantom sword at

Review: htoL#NiQ: The Firefly Diary

[This post originally appeared on Destructoid.com] No, that isn't an encoding error up there in the headline: "htoL#NiQ" is indeed this PS Vita game's title, and is essentially a very stylish way to type "The Firefly Diary" i...

Annotated Anime: Kantai Collection episodes 5-6

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 be...

Persona 5 is the Lupin III RPG you never knew you wanted

Indeed, like a certain police officer, the legendary assassin Golgo 13 is just a few weeks from retirement...literally! After nearly forty-seven years in serialization, the longest-running currently published manga is set to ...

Annotated Anime: Gundam Build Fighters Try episode 17

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 Fum...
