Durarara!!

What’s with that name? It’s just a big jumble of sounds! But you’re right, it is just a jumble of sounds, like the rumble of a powerful engine on a black sportbike just before it zooms away into countless mysteries and strange encounters with the world of humans. This series has a multitude of characters, most of who are pretty […]

If you haven’t seen it and plan […]

KonoSuba

Explosion! Useless! Steal! Purification! Kazumaaaaa!!!! That can tell this story to pretty much anyone who’s seen any part of this show. The beloved anime of animes. “KonoSuba” is of course a shortened version of the full Japanese title, which contains the words “kono subarashii sekai” (“this wonderful/amazing world”), and so has come to be known by this simple appellation. And […]
