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?
We bid temporary farewell to the best season of anime comedies in recent memory, including some wild Birdie Birdie speculation for Birdie Wing season 2.
We catch up on Kamen Rider and Digimon, talk about all the shows putting the “romance” in romantic comedy, and declare Birdie Wing the greatest television show of all time.
We discuss wholesome monster girls and debate who had the best bars in all the anime rap battles this season.
We have a serious, nuanced, and mature discussion about the serious, nuanced, and mature anime of the Spring 2022 season.
Another anime season is upon us! We chat about the Spring 2022 season, featuring a lot of romantic comedies and the resurrection of ancient properties like Tiger & Bunny and Black Rock Shooter.
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 made it to 100 episodes!
We bid farewell to The Heike Story, welcome back Eighty-Six: 86, and go in hard on the latest developments in Sakugan.
We have finally caught up and settled in with the Fall 2021 season.
We say goodbye to Fena: Pirate Princess, catch up on a few leftovers from last season, then settle in with the Fall season shows we’ll (probably) be sticking with.
After a great Spring season and not so great Summer season, it seems balance has been restored to the anime world. The crew gives their first impressions of the good and bad (but mostly good?) new shows of the Fall 2021 season.
In the year 2061, Japan has been divided into four protectorate territories managed and controlled by foreign nations in the name of preserving and aiding in Japan’s protection. In reality, the Japanese people are oppressed by the occupying forces and their remote piloted mecha drones, known as AMAIMs. Amou Shiba, a local scavenger and tinkerer, discovers an abandoned AI asking for his help. Together they pilot Kenbu, a robot Amou has been putting together in his spare time, and begin their fight to take back Japan.
