The new Ultraman's YouTube stream now has English subtitles

One surprise that caught me off guard is the current Ultraman show, Ultraman R/B, not appearing on Crunchyroll. The reason why this is strange is that the service simulcasted 2015's Ultraman X, 2016's Ultraman Orb, and 2017's Ultraman Geed....

Releases of the Week: Harlock is an amazing role model

Is it me, or is summer turning into the season of classics releases? I think the answer might be "yes" since we have one of Leiji Matsumoto's (Space Battleship Yamato's Creator, Interstella 5555's Character Design) best characters appearing...

Go Nagai is attending Anime Expo '18

As I rejoice over 2018 marking the return of three classic Go Nagai titles, the people at Anime Expo made me excited as they grant him the Guest of Honor status. If anything, this is the perfect follow-up to the new Devilman, Mazi...

Releases of the Week: Kanna steals the spotlight

Oh, boy. It seems like we hit another occasion where the anime titles are slowing down as the manga stuff dominates North America. At least there's a decent amount in the wild. Most importantly, this marks the second release of the Dragon M...

Releases of the Week: Don't underestimate Kenshiro's power

This week is shaping up to be a great time for Fist of the North Star fans, as Discotek releases the movie on Blu-ray. Silly enough, this news reminds me that I still need to check out the anime and/or manga. Since I heard nothing but amazi...

This magic weapon lets you become a real Gun Mage

The idea of characters emitting magical circles when they cast spells or use special weapons is something that fascinates me. Unfortunately, there isn't anything that can create these effects in real life. Fortunately, props maker Fris...

Space Battleship Yamato 2199's sequel lands on Crunchyroll

Whenever anything related to Space Battleship Yamato surfaces, I think back to the days when I caught its Americanized version, Star Blazers, on Toonami's defunct streaming site called Toonami Reactor. Since it has a special place in my hea...

Let's go nuts for Shirobako's new movie

Shirobako is one of those shows that got me invested with the characters and story through its run. This had to do with the way how the team portrayed the cast's struggles in creating an anime production. Thanks to it succeeding in making t...

FLCL's sequel brings out The Pillows goodness on June 2

Whenever a title finishes its run, there's a good chance that its story is complete. As FLCL's new seasons hit us with a cool trailer, I'm still siding with those who think that they aren't necessary. Aside from the original show havin...
