The Ancient Magus’ Bride

Oftentimes people fear that which they don’t know or understand. But sometimes someone comes along who looks for the beauty in the unknown or the mysterious. Such were the creators behind the mystical and beautiful anime named The Ancient Magus’ Bride. Among the many things this anime does very well, the way its writers portray magic is one of the […]

Platinum End

One of the few real-world issues I will lament in this forum is the unhappy love of death that occasionally finds its way into Japanese anime. This show, Platinum End, is another iteration of the kind of show that’s obsessed with death and dying. While this anime is intriguing at times, ultimately it is completely overshadowed by that darkness which […]

Mars Red

I like this anime for a small handful of reasons. Otherwise it’s just confusing and therefore impossible to like or really even dislike overall.

Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan

Youkai! Anime is full of these traditional Japanese legends! From creatures like the nine-tailed kitsune to kappa to bakeneko to yuuki onna, so many of these mythical creatures have appeared in many different anime in as many different forms and roles.

Dies Irae

Verweile doch, du bist so schön! Das Ewig-Weibliche Zieht uns hinan. My German and Japanese skills are roughly equivalent, meaning I had no idea what that meant. Fortunately we have tools for this kind of thing now, so you all can translate that as well as I can! And once you translate it, you’ll find it doesn’t really do anything […]

Kokoro Connect

A supernatural rom-com? We’ve all seen probably more than a few in this genre, but it still sounds like such an odd mix. And this anime does a pretty good job with it. Fairly interesting characters and pretty artwork adorn this rather unusual storyline, keeping your mind and heart engaged throughout. I enjoyed it even though I felt it was […]

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 […]
