First Impressions: Mekakucity Actors

"Oh hey, a Shaft show! I didn't end up watching Nisekoi, so I'll be sure to watch this." This was the only reason I decided to pick up Mekakucity Actors. I had no idea that I was diving into what seems like a reasonably well-...

Hanamonogatari gets its first teaser trailer

Nothing is going to slow down Shaft's Monogatari train, especially when you consider how popular the franchise has become. Heads would roll if people couldn't get the next available dose of Mayoi getting beaten up by Araragi...

First Impressions: Nisekoi photo
First Impressions: Nisekoi
by Elliot Gay

Once upon a time there was an awesome Jump manga series called Double Arts by a man named Naoshi Komi. A wonderful little story about a pair of people who had to hold hands at all times, Double Arts would go on to be canceled after its third volume despite how great it was. I still cry myself to sleep every night over its cancellation.

Years later and here I am, watching Shaft's anime adaptation of his latest series, Nisekoi. Going in fairly blind, the only thing I knew about it was that it was a romantic comedy taking place in a non- fantasy world where people didn't have to hold hands in order to survive.

A little under half an hour later and I find myself thinking "maybe that isn't so bad."

See the next chapter of the Monogatari Series

I have to say, it feels almost weird to be posting this trailer. Not that this new trailer for the next part of Monogatari Series Second Season is at all "weird", but that the show is still going. I usually expect Shaft...
