In all the 13 years obtaining and tagging music for Neko Desu, there is one song that has given me constant headaches. It’s time to talk about Black★Rock Shooter.
Our ten favorite anime (and anime adjacent) series from the past year, 2022 edition.
In his annual musing on the year past, Zigg talks about 2022 being dominated by high-profile sequels and adaptations, and why that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
Realistically, not every series can be a gem, and not every series even strives to be. So, here’s a toast to the little guys – those anime that aren’t great but also aren’t terrible, the shows that got people through seasons full of outright shite, the titles that helped fill in the blanks and got a “well, that was at least okay” seal of approval in return.
This is it, folks. I have officially hit rock bottom. I’m going to be boring. I’m going to give you my five favourite shows of the year, and my thoughts on them, and that’s it. So put on your beige shirt and produce some kind of monotonous grunt to express your excitement in a respectable fashion. Here are — deep sigh — the shows of 2022 I want to shout ou— err, I mean, highlight. Boringly.
Euri forgot to watch any J-drama this year, so unfortunately you get a long rambling post about trading cards.
2022 is an interesting year for anime. What it lacks in an obvious high profile mega-hit, it makes up for with a lot of surprise hits. I laughed a lot with anime this year, and that’s worth something. Join me as I reminisce about the anime I watched this year, both the good and the bad. I’m not going to lie people, I threw this together at the last minute. I hope it’s coherent?
When I whittled down this year’s list of watched shows down to smaller and smaller numbers, it turned out that almost everything on there was some kind of adaptation or reboot. What’s up with that? Were they any good?
Diving into my (mostly silly) favorite anime moments of 2022.
2021 had a lot of good anime. What shows made the top 10? What made #1? Has our running gag of choosing an ironic header image for this post gone too far? Read on to get at least two of these questions answered.
For their first year-end post, Peter decides to stay on the positive side and write nice things about shows they dropped part-way through. Makes sense?
As the year draws to a close, Aqua provides an overview of the most memorable and interesting characters he got to meet during these four seasons of anime and tokusatsu.
Zigg talks about how 2021 saw a resurgence in high quality, creator creator-driven anime, and how that resulted in the strongest slate of shows in quite some time.
As I was busy laying on the sofa and staring at the ceiling this year, I didn’t get around to watching too many J-dramas. I do have a handful to talk about though, so come on in!
When it comes to end-of-year anime wrap-ups, unsurprisingly, people tend to write about the best and/or worst shows of the year. You know, the ones that practically emitted a heavenly glow as angels burst into perfect harmony during the opening sequence, or else made viewers want to hurl themselves into the black, black void, cursing…
2021 was an unbelievably strong year with some legitimate generational contenders. I look back on the year and for as much shit as I love to give anime (and rightfully so sometimes), this year also saw a ton of creativity and artistic vision at work. Join me as I go through the highs (and lows) of the anime I watched in 2021.
We’ve done this for another year somehow, and Iro’s back to give a brief look at the shows he thinks are worth mentioning. There’s more than usual this time!
It is time once again to look back at the very GLORIO anime that aired in 2021, starting with a list of my favorite anime moments.
Hey kids! Remember this feature? In my latest attempt to semi-regularly resurrect some of the semi-regular features we used to run in the past, it’s long due time to talk about the best anime music of this season again.
In The Wrap-Up, all of our contributors get to shine a spotlight on the show they thought to be the very best of the past few weeks, as well as reflect back on the preview to see which shows let us down the most. When you watch currently airing anime or tokusatsu, eventually the question will rise which of these shows can rank amongst the medium’s true classics. Regardless of who covered what, this is where we single out the cream of the crop, and decide which shows from the past season deserve to stand the test of time.
