One-Punch Man Review

Hello, guys, it’s Jamie! Today my best friend in the whole wide world is guest posting for me here today. His name is James (He blogs a J and J Productions) and he got me into anime back in 2014. We’ve been online friends for years, even doing a few podcasts together, and we recently…

Jamie’s Favorite 2015 Shows || Top Ten!

Including shorts, I watched 60 shows to full completion from 2015’s seasonal anime this year! Just wow, guys! I had such a great time doing it this year, too! A huge thank you to my best friend for helping me choose what shows to watch and talking about them with me each week! For it…

Ongoing || Fall 2015 First Impressions: Part 1

School and family are keeping my brain pretty preoccupied of late, but I’m still finding the time to watch some shows this fall season, and I’m also going to find the time to talk about them too! I’ll be honest, I though this season was going to feel pretty lame in comparison to the fantastic…

Food Wars || A Review

Easily a top ten show of this entire year, Food Wars took the awesome elements of classic shounen action and melded it into the competitive, scientific world of a top-notch culinary school, displaying the guts and smarts of the students determined to be the best in the world of cooking. And IT. WAS. AWESOME. As this story is…

Sound! Euphonium || A Review

Wow this was a fantastic anime! The realism, the music, the drama, the animation: it was always a treat to tune in to Sound! Euphonium each week last season. I would love to watch it again some time! I found immense enjoyment in this show, and I hope I can communicate my love for this…

Re-Kan! || A Review

I consider this supernatural comedy the unappreciated show of the 2015 Spring season; it’s animation does look a little old and the slower pace probably made it seem forgettable compared to other spring shows like Blood Blockade Battlefront, Food Wars, Sound! Euphonium, and DanMachi. However, in a quieter season, Re-Kan! would have gotten more of the love…

Kiki’s Delivery Service || A Weekend Flick

Kiki’s Delivery Service is one of Studio Ghibli’s most well-loved films–I think that’s pretty safe for me to say. 😀 I came to appreciate Kiki in a roundabout way, as it wasn’t love at first sight. I thought it was a decent film at first, but I didn’t connect with it–I was sick in bed…

Assassination Classroom (and why we’re not friends.)

This is less of a review, and more of an explanation to why Assassination Classroom and I did not get along during the Winter and Spring seasons–we danced a dance of surprise and disappoint, we did. Please don’t take personal offense, fans, I’ll try to share my conflicted feelings as nicely as possible. 😉 For…

Porco Rosso || A Weekend Flick

It is of my opinion that Porco Rosso is one of Studio Ghibli’s most under-appreciated films. The majority of the film is a masterpiece of atmosphere, drama, steady pacing, and character execution. We are treated to a subtle but beautiful celebration of women, which is what gave this film the extra boost into my personal favorites….

Yatterman Night || A Mini Review

So, Yatterman Night from the Winter 2015 season was a pretty good show, with an interesting sense of humor and intriguing commentary on what symbolism can mean to a nation. This was a treat to watch, even though it was a tad hard getting settled in for the ride. At least the lead character was an adorable…

Ponyo || A Weekend Flick

Ponyo is in my top three or four Studio Ghibli films. It whisked me away on my very first viewing, leaving me stunned by the gorgeous animation and completely won by the adorable child leads. This is the version of The Little Mermaid that I love because the innocence, warmth, and adventure is so touching and engaging! And yes, Ponyo…

Saekano || A Review

So this anime was pretty self-aware in a smart funny way, which is why I was able to watch the entire thing. Ecchi isn’t really the anime genre I like to frequent because it’s generally full of holes and annoying fanservice that serves little purpose beyond pure fanservice. Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend was…
