Ghost in the Shell Review photo

Ghost in the Shell's 'motion posters' are gif-tastic

With just a few weeks to go until the Ghost in the Shell live-action film actually happens, I continue to find myself surprised it exists and even more surprised that it looks kind of rad. What we've seen so far isn't the same as the o...

Get to know the Major in the new Ghost in the Shell trailer

Annotated Keijo photo

Annotated Anime: Keijo!!!!!!!! episodes 2-5

The series premiere of Keijo!!!!!!!! was probably the most confusing anime I've seen this season, and most likely the year. Introducing a world in which busty girls attack each other with their butts for money, I expected the show to be ano...

First Impressions: Keijo!!!!!!!!

Keijo!!!!!!!! has both the best and worst first episode I have ever seen in anime. It's most likely one of the biggest surprises of the Fall season merely for its audacity to exist. In a wonderful maelstrom of fan service, slick action anim...

Oh, sweet joy: One Punch Man gets a second season

It looks like our regimen of performing 100 push-ups, 100 sit-ups, 100 squats and a 10km run everyday has finally paid off. What I'm trying to say is that the One Punch Man anime's second season is officially a thing.  The announcement...

Review: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is the only property with such, well, bizarre characters, insanely disproportional art, backbreaking victory poses, operatic plot, and enough bravado to carry all of this on machismo alone. Thanks to its no holds ba...

Ghost in the Shell live-action gets Rila Fukushima

First Impressions: Haven't You Heard? I'm Sakamoto

I fell really hard into the manga scene about 10-12 years ago. I pretty much checked manga scan sites everyday. They're not so cool now that I can afford to buy whatever volume of manga I want (and, you know, it's still theft), but they wer...

First Impressions: Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World-

Out of all the anime this season, one in particular really stood out to me. Taking two common anime plots and essentially mushing them together into some kind of peanut butter and monster sandwich, Re: ZERO - Starting Life in Another World ...
