AA: Kill la Kill 03 photo

Annotated Anime: Kill la Kill Episode 03

Kill la Kill's third episode is about as climactic as anime can get without outright ending a series. It's a packed 24 minutes that devotes a majority of its run time to a large scale battle between the two leads, stopping only briefly to d...

Servant x Service photo

First Impressions: Servant x Service

At first glance, Servant x Service feels just like Working or Wagnaria, whichever you prefer. The diner comedy sports the same comedic timing common to 4koma adaptations, the same array of odd characters, and the same otaku-friendly trappin...
