Final Thoughts: Yatterman Night

Perhaps one of the biggest breakout stars of the Winter 2015 season, Yatterman Night was a heartfelt romp rife with adventure, unyielding optimism, and bleak dystopia in equal measure.

The Roundup: Winter 2015 Volume 10

More death and tragedy all over the place as Garo, Death Parade, Yatterman, and Yurikuma continue to deny us happiness. Fortunately Shirobako delivers the best episode of the season, but even that makes us shed a tear for completely different reasons.

The Roundup: Winter 2015 Volume 4

Shoooooock! (kuma shock)… I’ve been waiting all season to slip that in and finally get my chance as Yurikuma Arashi guest stars in the Roundup this week. As one show enters, we also have our second drop of the season. What could it possibly be???

The Roundup: Winter 2015 Volume 2

Good times all around as Roundup vets Shirobako and Garo deliver some fresh perspectives and the new shows continue to deliver on their potential.
