Anime Review: Free! Iwatobi Swim Club, Episode 1

Back in March, a promo clip from Kyoto Animation from about 2012 was floating around the internet. It was a short 30 seconds, but it captured the attention of anime fans who then took to the internet and demanded a full-blown anime be made. Could you blame them?

Dog & Scissors (Inu to Hasami wa Tsukaiyou) Episodes 2 & 3

Episode 2: Strike While the Dog is Hot - The title should have been a warning but hey, anime titles don't always translate well into English so who knew. I cringed at her updating the Kiripedia - yes, her name is Kirihime Natsuno - as our dynamic duo head out on a mystery mission.

Anime Review: Free! Iwatobi Swim Club Ep. 3

A Wild Yandere Appears: Dog & Scissors Episode 4

This episode picks up exactly where the last one left off, even though at first it doesn't seem to. We get to meet Kazuhito's kidnapper, which happens to be his little sister. At first it looks like a happy reunion for out floppy-eared hero but there is something very, very, strange about Madoka.

Kinky Boot on Face Action: Attack on Titan episode 14

Ok before I discuss this episode, let's talk about the brand new opening theme which seems to be getting more hate that it really deserves. The new opening is by Linked Horizon, the same group that did the first opening. It is titled "Die Flügel der Freiheit" - in Japanese Jiyū no Tsubasa (in English [...]

Mad Scientists and Musty Castles: Attack on Titan Episode 15 Review

Episode 15: Special Ops Squad - Night Before the Counteroffensive (part 2) This episode provides a lot of good information, in spite of what feels like a slow pace. Naturally, after all the tension and action of the last few episodes this one appears to creep along.

Anime Review: Free! Iwatobi Swim Club Ep. 4

It's training season for the Iwatobi Swim Club as their first relay match approaches. But Rei doesn't know how to swim, so Nagisa and Mako take it upon themselves to teach him.

The Worst Recruitment Speech in the History of Humanity: Attack on Titan ep 16

Episode 16 What to Do Now: Prelude to the Counterattack, Part 3 This was a highly emotional episode. The recruits are sorting their feelings on which service to join and that is a lot tougher now that they have actually faced Titans. Commander Erwin also gives what I have to say is the worst recruitment speech [...]

Anime Sneak Peek: Previews of Anime Coming in 2014

Media Factory's @comic_alive Twitter account announced last Sunday the anime adaptations of five manga series from the MG Bunko J line. I got a peek at the previews via a new friendly anime community, Shiro Chan and that made me want to know a bit more.

Nice Butt & She's Intelligent Too: Attack on Titan Episode 17 Female Titan

I swear each episode of this series is the fastest twenty-four minutes of my week. Episode 17 just kicked things in to high gear with the appearance of the Female Titan (someone should let Dot Pixis know about her) that we saw hints of in the opening.
