Koufuku Graffiti – 12 (END)

「しみしみ、むぎゅっ。」 (Shimishimi, Mugyu.)
“Soaked Up, Squeeze.”

I would highly recommend this anime to anyone who calls themselves a “foodie” or anyone who just wants to develop an appetite late at night.

Tokyo Ghoul Root A – 12 (END)

「研」 (Ken)
“Ken”

I don’t know what stunned me more – that final episode, or the reaction to it.

Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata – 11 & 12 (END)

「伏線回収準備よし & 波乱と激動の日常エンド」 (Fukusen Kaishū Junbi Yoshi & Haran to Gekidō no Nichijō Endo)

SHIROBAKO – Dreams Do Come True


Miyamori’s journey is only just beginning.

If I could go back in time and change one thing, it would be to have picked this up for weekly coverage.

Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso – 21, 22 (END)

「雪 & 春風」 (Yuki & Harukaze)
“Snow & Spring Breeze”

Seeing how episode 21 and 22 could be lumped together as one SUPER episode, it makes sense that the post would come out that way, right? In all seriousness though, Takaii here, back to cover the final two episodes for Shigatsu due to some unforeseen technical issues.

Kiseijuu: Sei no Kakuritsu – 24 (END)

「寄生獣」 (Kiseijuu)
“Parasyte”

Having a final episode almost devoid of the series’ namesake was a bold move. But it paid off.

Akatsuki no Yona – Fantasy

[Insert some Whitney Houston song here]


 

I don’t want to debate the differences between high and low fantasy, but whatever Akatsuki no Yona was, it did it well.

Tsukimonogatari

「よつぎドール 其ノ壹 – 肆」 (Yotsugi Dōru Sono Ichi – Yon)
“Yotsugi Doll Parts One – Four”

‘Impossible. Is there anything more important than getting a little girl?’

*Some of our characters are all too comfortable unburdened by clothes, so this post is slightly NSFW.

Shingeki no Bahamut GENESIS – Favarooo!


Certainty of death, *small* chance of success… What are we waiting for?

This is how you do a card game adaptation. Step 1: Take the basic mechanics and/or setting of the game. Step 2: Create an interesting cast of characters who work well together, even if they need to be original. Step 3: Use the setting as a jumping off point to tell a good story. That seems simple, but the key is to not remain shackled to the game. Use its assets, but always remember the most important thing: tell a good story. That’s what Shingeki no Bahamut GENESIS did, and it worked damn well.

Madan no Ou to Vanadis – The Adventures of Human Legolas


For some reason, I feel like playing Risk.

An entire civil war in one season. If only the real ones passed as quickly … though I would’ve liked to have spent more time with this one, so we could really get to know these characters and this world.

Amagi Brilliant Park – 13 (END)

「PVがつまらない!」 (PV ga Tsumaranai!)
