First Impressions: Witch Craft Works

J.C. Staff is my drug of choice when it comes to romantic comedies as of late. From the stories, to the quality of the animation, character design, and so on, it’s no wonder that I was excited for their new show Witch Craft Works to c...

Friday Night Fights: Shana vs Ayano

*ding, ding, ding* It's Over! The Dangaioh team may have the psychic moves and number to overwhelm Sanger, but The Sword That Cleaves Evil still manages to come up on top. While the Dangaioh team aren't villains, their skills couldn't match...

Review: Shakugan No Shana S

No matter where I go, I just can’t get that Flamed Haired girl off my back! Thankfully, she’s here for a short time, so the ‘shut ups’ won’t be as frequent. Compare to the movie and the TV series; Shakugan No S...

Review: Shakugan No Shana: The Movie

The moment of truth has arrived, people! It looks like I have crossed path with a certain flame haired hunter that’s been mentioned around these parts in the past. Compare to her previous appearances, she has decided to take the form ...

Review: A Certain Magical Index Season 1

Before I took on the task of watching A Certain Magical Index, I was told that the series evolves into one giant convoluted mess. With the exception of a few terms, the show’s first season doesn't feature anything that would...

Friday Night Fights: Mikoto vs Storm

*ding, ding, ding* It's Over! Well folks, it looks like we encountered an unexpected turn of events in the J-tor Arena. Despite Zoro's victory over Masamune, Masamune refused to accept his defeat. Since Zoro was having trouble searching for...

Review: Aria: The Scarlet Ammo

Aria: The Scarlet Ammo is not what I was expecting it to be. At first glance, it looked as though Aria was going to be another anime series with a loli touting guns and a hopeless male protagonist. I was content with just shutting my brain ...

Shocker: Railgun gets a new season, Index gets movie

Here's some news I expected to hear somewhat earlier: New anime set in the absurd world of A Certain Magical Index and A Certain Scientific Railgun are on their way. Index is getting a new movie treatment, titled A Certain Magical...

First Impressions: The Pet Girl of Sakurasou

Why is it that I love romantic comedies so much? Maybe I’m just a hopeless romantic at heart. I think it’s more accurate to say that I am more of a hopeless perverted romantic at heart. Which is why Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo is...

First Impression: Joshiraku

Just like Chihayafuru before it, Joshiraku focuses on something to most foreigners. Basing its roots in mimicking a certain style of Japanese storytelling called rakugo, this show is already on a good start with its strong ai...

Get ready! Little Busters! to be animated by J.C. Staff

So Kyoto Animation or P.A. Works are not going to ride the waves on adapting the Little Busters! visual novel game by Key. Before you get upset about the news, J.C. Staff did do a fantastic job in animating Ano Natsu de Matteru, so there is...

Final Impressions: Shakugan no Shana Final

If you had asked me two years ago whether I thought the third and final season of Shakugan no Shana would be anything more than average at best, I probably would have just laughed and walked away. The first season of the show was a solid fa...

Zero no Tsukaima F finally surfaces with 3 trailers

I know there are a few of you out there who are fans of Zero no Tsukaima. Having made it through three seasons up until now, the series has certainly seen its ups and downs. A lot like a certain other anime featuring Rie Kugimiya, character...

Finally, Familiar of Zero is getting its final season

I didn't think it would happen, to be honest. I had assumed that J.C. Staff and the rest of the world had moved on to concentrate on planning out future episodes of Railgun or Index or working on something like Heaven's Memo Pad.&...

First Impressions: Otome Yokai Zakuro

Action, romance, cute character designs, a pleasantly weird setting, and stylish visuals. Otome Yokai Zakuro has all the qualities that make you want to point to it and say "That is what 'Anime' is like" when differentiating it fr...
