Anime Review: Parasyte — the Maxim

Standard

I’m not sure why some people thought this was scary. I thought it was funny, in a satirical kind of way. Then again, I tend to have that kind of opinion about a lot of stuff in the horror genre.

But kidding aside, I will at least try to be faithful to the critical analysis that I would normally do for a series like this one, as classic Japanese horror tends to reflect a lot upon the human condition as well as make people feel really unstable psychologically speaking… but I make no promises. Here are my honest thoughts about the anthropological satire — err — horror anime adapted from a ’90s manga that was made within this past year.

Funny 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 funny 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 funny moments (but not necessarily the funniest moments) of Fall 2014 anime. You can find all of these titles on Crunchyroll.

My Fall 2014 Crunchyroll Simulcasts

Standard

Hey everyone!

Taking a quick break from my studies to finalize my simulcasts for this anime season. Since then, I’ve added about 20 things to my list, but I’m choosing to highlight only 10 of them. As always, my lists tend to be quite eclectic, and don’t always reflect the most popular things.

As an aside, I will be getting back to full anime reviews on a later date, but my next one might take some time, as it will be the 50th anime-specific review I have on this blog; and I will be doing something a little special for that one.

You can watch legally and for free* on Crunchyroll! They are in order by when they come out weekly (PDT).
