Great Moments in Fall 2014 Anime

Standard

The end of the Fall 2014 season, and the year, is upon us. And since many of my simulcasts have wrapped up, it’s time to once again share some of this season’s great moments. The following 12 moments are comprised of roughly 20 anime series I have watched, which don’t even make up half of what aired!

This season, I am doing things a little differently by including a theme for the season. Fall 2014’s theme is Stars and Flowers, courtesy of this season’s Yuki Yuna is a Hero. The moments shown here, in my opinion, reflect this theme.

These are the great moments (but not necessarily the greatest moments) of Fall 2014 anime. You can find all of these titles on Crunchyroll.

Anime Review: The World is Still Beautiful

Standard

I’ll admit that I tend to have a very optimistic perspective on a lot of things, so saying that I like this or love that seems pretty meaningless. This is part of the reason I don’t give ratings for things I review, because I am aware that my bias is always skewed toward the higher than most other people.

However, it is impossible to fully appreciate the good things about life when ignoring the bad things. And for a series that is consistently “good” in my point of view, this idea is shown quite beautifully in the lives of Nike and Livius, who share a comedic, yet meaningful love for each other.

Anime Review: English Dubs

Standard

I review a lot of anime that have come out within the past few years; and because of such recentness, a lot of my views come from watching it in Japanese. While I do have a tendency to enjoy these in their original format (provided with English subtitles from legal streaming sites like Crunchyroll), I rarely have a chance to rewatch them when they come out in English.

I have, however, managed to buy DVD copies of some of the things I have reviewed on this blog. The three works I will feature come highly recommended by me and can be watched in Japanese (with English subtitles) on Crunchyroll, but their English dub equivalents are also available from Sentai Filmworks. This review will be comprised of the English dub formats for Kids on the Slope, Sunday Without God, and From the New World, respectively. Please continue to support these official releases.

Anime Review: Love Hina

Standard

Hey everyone!

I realize that I’ve taken a very long hiatus since my last post; and I have no legitimate excuse for that. I’ve been lending my efforts to other things, but mainly I’ve just internalized my 50th “milestone” anime review to the point it was just never getting done. And since today is also Otaku Day (apparently), I decided to just go ahead and review the anime that brought me into the realm of anime fandom (err… otakudom?).

Note: this review will be written somewhat differently from my other reviews, in that this is a personal reflection more than an actual review.
