Tsukigakirei Review

No that’s not random gibberish. For some reason Crunchyroll and Funimation couldn’t use spaces making it “Tsuki ga kirei” or just the English title attached to the logo “As the moon, so Beautiful”, but I digress. Anyway, romance is one of the most common themes in entertainment. Whether the story

The King’s Avatar Review

China has been making a push lately to join in Japan’s anime market and while I can speak of in China or commercially, in the west most of the shows (be them in the original Chinese or the Japanese dubs) have been critically panned. I pretty much gave up on

BanG Dream! Review

Rewrite Series Review

Any follower of my writing for a decent period of time should know how much of a Key fan I am. I quite enjoyed reading Rewrite back when I first discovered Key and was hopeful for an anime to see some of the more action heavy scenes animated (as well

Are Spoilers That Bad?

Whether you are talking about TV, movies, video games or books almost everyone is in agreement that spoilers are a bad thing and anyone who knowingly spoils other people is scum. This has even gotten to the point of people complaining about “spoilers” when details of a press conference (you

Amazon and Netflix Don’t Understand Anime fans

When two giant companies both involved in streaming content start getting involved in anime that should be a good thing. Both Netflix and Amazon have way more money to spend than Crunchyroll so particularly when they get involved with the production that should certainly help. The problem is, both have
