Annotated Anime: Stardust Crusaders episodes 13-16

One of the things I've grown to love about Stardust Crusaders is that it passes by quickly. It's amazing how I can basically leave the series for weeks on end and then catch up with all of them and remark "Wow, that was ...

Queen Beryl and Jadeite devise an evil scheme in Sailor Moon's third dub clip

It seems that my prediction about Viz uploading a new Sailor Moon-related video everyday was incorrect, as the company chose to post their third dub clip today. Either way, it's still nice of Viz to show off Sailor Moon's ne...

Annotated Anime: Aldnoah Zero episode 2

"Operation Earthfall" has been begun, igniting war on planet Earth. Launching massive structures called "landing castles" all over the world, they strategically destroy every communications resource they find on land, sea, and space. I guess it's up to a group of teenagers to set things right!

Sailor Moon's second dub clip shows off Luna's new English voice

After giving us a quick sample of Usagi and Mamoru's new English voices for the new Sailor Moon dub, Viz  has uploaded a new video that features Michelle Ruff's take on Luna. Since I've enjoyed most of Ruff's roles, I t...

Shonen Showdown: One Piece Episodes 647 - 653

As we’re in the thick of a pretty serious arc, the pace for One Piece has slowed to a crawl. Not only that, but there are so many different things going on that it’s taking forever for major plot points to deal wi...

Let's take a quick look at Sailor Moon's new dub

Back when Viz Media announced the English voice actors for the new Sailor Moon dub at Anime Expo 2014, I couldn't help but to be intrigued by their choices. With the first Sailor Moon boxset getting ready to hit North Americ...

Annotated Anime: Sword Art Online II episode 2
by Salvador GRodiles

After going through an exposition-filled episode, you’d think that Sword Art Online II would start Kazuto’s main mission already. Instead, the series chose to introduce the viewers to Sinon, a player who happens to be very experienced in Gun Gale Online. Either way, Sinon was hinted to play an important role in SAO's new season, so there shouldn’t be a problem with seeing this new character in action.

Due to A-1’s decision to focus on Miyuki Sawashiro’s character, I think it’s safe to say that Sword Art Online II will move at a normal pace. Since a good introduction is important for any series, let’s find out if SAO II gets things right with Sinon’s debut.

by Josh Totman

As the site’s official “boob anime connoisseur”, it is my duty to watch all the boob anime each season.  It’s a filthy dirty job most of the time, but there are times when it can pay off beyond the bounce and deliver a good engaging story. This season, I’m afraid to say, will not be one that I see paying off...

First Impressions: Hanayamata
by Jeff Chuang

Hello there. I live in the state of New Jersey, here in the USA. Unfortunately my name is not Fountainstand and I've never heard of yosakoi until I first read about Hanayamata.

After doing a few Google searches, I found out that yosakoi is a modern take of the awa odori, where Japanese folk dancing meets modern, western-style dances. The result is something distinctly Japanese but it also looks a lot like hip hop and group cheerleading at times. Well, Wikipedia and Youtube are better subject matter experts than I on yosakoi, and frankly I'm more interested in Hanayamata and why is there a transfer student named Hana N. Fountainstand, hailing from Princeton, New Jersey.

I've become a large fan of P.A. Works in the past year or two. The Eccentric Family and Nagi-Asu both proved to be among the top shows of their respective seasons, providing grounded drama in the midst of well-realized fantastical settings.

Persona 4 is among the most addictive and stubborn video game properties of the past 4 years -- you couldn't get rid of it if you wanted to! A lightning in a bottle that continues to hook us in with spin-offs and now, a second anime retelling. But this time, we're going full-on New Game Plus.

Yamaha wants you to be the Master of Torque

We all strive to master something, be that mastering our destiny, mastering a foreign language (odds are it's Japanese if you're reading this), or even just mastering the art of killing time. Now motorcycle and keyboard make...
