S-Class Went To The Sea Sea Sea (King)
If last week's installment of One Punch Man was about complicating the world of heroism for our man Saitama - and to an extent, for us as observers of the show's world, this week's episode is all about intensifying it.
In a word, things get real this week.
All part of a good Thanksgiving dinner
You know that the end of November's gonna be amazing when we learn about the new Garo-related announcements. While three projects were announced during this year's Garo: Golden Wolf Thanksgiving festivity, only two of them a...
Chill and Look Back
So it's the holidays for the people in the United States with Thanksgiving followed by the most insane shopping day of the year, Black Friday. So a lot you might by just chillin' in your jammie jams like Umaru pictured above ...
I want that Senketsu scarf
Black Friday is here again along with the insanity but not all deals are to be had in stores since a lot of the anime goods you want aren't in brick and mortar stores these days. One great deal I stumbled upon for the post-turkey day shopping holiday is the OMAKASE subscription goodie box by online video streaming service Viewster.com.
One Piece catch up extravaganza!
It's been too long my friends for a salty sailor to be denied the high seas. I've saved One Piece until last since little ever happens week to week. And the five weeks I do decide to leave are the five episodes where three executives are taken down, one of the best heart-wrenching flashbacks in this arc occurs, and Zoro imitates an aeroplane.
From reading posts by anime fans whenever a show has a selection of female characters (often attractive) one of them will be selected as best. This is an entirely opinionated but I think the most common favourite in the ...
That Feel When No One Knows You
The last couple of weeks of One Punch Man have delivered a couple of big hits, and neither courtesy of the titular "man" himself, Saitama.
One hit is more psychological/philosophical than anything else, and the second is literal in a way that befits a show as straightforward as to have a title like One Punch Man.
Time to Smile
This weekend, we take a look at some anime endings from anime that made me happy. These anime made me happy in different ways, some are funny while some just provide you with pure joy. I hope you find these endings to enterta...
We All Could Use A Smile This Week
So I thought we could all use a bit of a different direction this week, not that forgetting any of the bad stuff that happened recently is denying that it happened or making light of the tragedy. Each person has their way of ...
It's a Literature Club, after all
In last season's anime, I had covered The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan dub for this site. The anime has now finished broadcasting and I've finished recapping, but I'm not quite done talking about it. I had noticed t...
The beginning of the end
Today marks the start of the last of arc in Owarimonogatari; Shinobu Mail. This arc will last half the season and clocks in at 6 episodes. It has only just dawned on me after this episode that I've found the entire season inc...
Scottish Folds are my favorite too
Apologies reader, this weekly column has somehow become a monthly one. It has been due to my review work for the site the majority of which went live last week. I have been looking forward to getting back into Durarara!!x2 Te...
Life leads to Death, Death leads to Life
So I've been playing a lot of Fallout 4, a video game set in a post apocalyptic wasteland and I am loving it so much. I honestly haven't much to say since I don't think anyone reads these things and people just check out the videos below to jam to some music. Enjoy!
What's your favorite post-apocalyptic anime ending or just anime? SHARE IN THE COMMENTS BELOW! I wanna know!
Living up to the Ass in Assassin
Whenever an old property gets reinvented, many folks tend to be concerned over the changes that the title goes through. In some cases, it can be a bad thing; however, a new take on a classic could act as a great way to a...
The End is just the Beginning
For many video game players out there, this week is a big one with the release of Fallout 4, one of the biggest and most anticipated games of the year. Fallout 4 is a game set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland of the ...
The Candy Man Can
It's been a little while since we last checked in with Iron-Blooded Orphans, and as a result, we're a little behind. Stuff is definitely happening, though, from table-setting in cornfields to the beginning of what is clearly the Tekkadan's rise to power.
Now, won't you take these sweets as a form of apology?
Hanekawa's boobs > Ougi
Since I've been behind on recapping Owarimonogatari, I was planning on writing a recap every time an arc had finished. This plan would've been perfect as it gave me more time in between each write up to catch up on other stuf...
We Must Go WIDER
Hidamari Sketch is a show I would recommend to people who like SHAFT (Bakemonogatari, Puella Magi Madoka Magica) and would want something a bit more subtle than their usual outrageous stuff. It still has a the...
Passing the test
Things start to pick up in the animated chronicle of the man who Belive In Justice and Hold A Determination To Fist*, as the theme of this week's episode is "testing", whether against bureaucracy, your teacher, or yourself.
Let's get some udon when we're done!
*Symphogear is the 2nd best punching anime this year

Toys in the Attic
Anime purists often argue that subtitled anime is the best kind of anime and snub all dubs, but there is an english anime dub that is almost unanimously loved by all anime fans: Cowboy Bebop. When Cowboy Bebop was brough...
Get on the Summer body early
There has always been sports anime around that I can never get into. Either I have no interest in the sport or the drama part takes too much away from the sport that I like, or the show is more interested in showing off ...
Miyu Matsuki, who recently went on hiatus due to a case of pneumonia around 3 months ago, tragically passed away last October 27 at the young age of 38. Yes, 38 is young and to lose someone so talented whose work you enjoy be...
Mars has gone retro
With a new Gundam show airing this season, it was only a matter of time until Studio Megaane would use his amazing skills to give Barbatos a retro upgrade. Once again, the guy did an amazing job with capturing the essen...
Lessons in life, love, and chee-burg
Episode 2 has Eren and the gang wondEreng about the long absence of their classmate Armin. Seems Armin doesn't like to go out in the cold so he hasn't been to school all winter. Eren gets tasked with going to Armin's house to...
The Lowest Blow
So, it turns out that Madhouse's big twist in their adaptation of the wildly popular One Punch Man would be to turn Saitama into the villain! Who'd have thunk it?!
No true hero would stoop so low as to punch a vulnerable enemy in the junk, after all. Dick strikes are the preserve of craven knaves alone!
Since this past week was a celebration of the date that was prominently featured in the movie Back to the Future Part II and the 30th anniversary of the first Back to the Future movie, the selection for this week's ...
Cavendish 'Two Face' Dent
Cavendish is a good character for One Piece. His character design is nice and provides some fan service for the lady viewers who'd prefer the prince characters over the overly macho Zoro. Cavendish isn't just eye candy e...
Perfect for the cosplay wedding
Boring old marriage certificate forms can now be made a lot prettier with the Sailor Moon inspired designs. Konin Todoke is an online certificate service that provides legislated documents for marriage and family registration...

Today is October 21, 2015. The future date most known as the date that the protagonists Marty McFly and Doc Brown travel to in the1988 film Back to the Future Part II. If you've been around the internet today, everywhere...
That Artesia, she sad
It looks like the hot, shirtless boys of Iron-Blooded Orphans aren't the only game in town when it comes to Gundam. There's also the undying chronicles of the Universal Century, which Bandai will never abandon so long a...
When Iron Flowers Bloom
Back when first wrote about Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans, I noted that the show's more morally ambiguous, grittier approach seemed to set it apart from its peers in mainline Gundam fiction.
As of the latest episode, that sentiment continues to hold true.
Get Fit with Saitama
One Punch Man? More like One Punch Per Week Man, am I right?
The Fall season's prettiest show continues into its third week, as Saitama and Genos head out to confront their first real enemy, the House of Evolution. Will this be the week that Saitama needs more than a single blow to fell his foes?
Spoiler Alert: Nope!
Harem ending is best ending
The great thing about Anime based on dating sims offer a multitude of waifus for you to fawn over (Otome game themed post coming later this month for those Otoge fans!) and use as a reason to fight random people on the intern...
Convenient Signage in the Aftermath
Welcome to the latest recap of One Punch Man, the only anime series that probably doesn't need a recap, for so obvious is the plot, am I right?
As it turns out, not quite. A fair bit goes on in today's installment, and while deviations from the source are few, newer viewers may find the latest developments engaging.
Variety is the spice of life
Dating sims adapted into anime is nothing new. Unlike other video game genres adapted into anime, dating sims tend to offer a more structured story than most but things get complicated when the dating sim has multiple heroine...
Never mess with Shizuo Heiwajima
The release of Durarara!!'s second cours dubbed started broadcasting last month and it went completely under my radar. 5 episodes in and I've become reacquainted with the denizens of Ikebukuro and the thin line called destiny that intertwines all of their actions together.
Gundam Iron Blood Orphans
Another year, another new Gundam series. My interest in Sunrise and Bandai's flagship has waxed and waned over the years, but I'll be the first to admit that I'm rarely attracted to the "mainline" shows that make up the core ...
