Annotated Anime: Psycho Pass episode 1

Psycho Pass season two is in full swing and as usual, your favorite Editor in Chief is late to the game. So, things kind of pick up right where season one left off, albeit a bit too casually. In fact, the whole episode plays ...

Seriously, stop pirating anime and manga

There's no denying that piracy is rampant amongst anime and manga, which is deplorable given how affordable and accessible things are now. I know this makes me sound old, but you kids have no idea how good you have it. When ...

Annotated Anime: Unlimited Blade Works episodes 2-3

The more I watch of Unlimited Blade Works, the more I'm convinced that everyone would've been better off if each episode were an hour long rather than the standard length. It'd work, even if the show became bi-weekly because ...

Annotated Anime: Terra Formars episodes 4-5

When last I wrote about Terra Formars I noted its tonal and structural similarities to another of the year's darlings, Attack on Titan. That got some folks riled up for some reason, but I'm standing by those words, espec...

Annotated Anime: Shirobako episode 3

Shirobako episode 3 brings us to Aoi's primary tasks to the finish. We first see the innocuous name sake--the white jewel case that hosts the final cut of the TV episode, thus "shirobako." The joy ride continues all the way to the end.

First Impressions: Log Horizon 2

We neglected to cover Log Horizon back when it debuted, beyond first look by Karen, who came away distinctly unimpressed. That was a missed opportunity, because, like many a good show, Log Horizon was very much a sl...
