It’s yet another idol anime, maybe, but none try to be as substantive as Cinderella Girls was.

Overlord – I Feel Nothing

Insert obligatory boner joke here.

I find myself terribly conflicted about this series. I think I enjoyed it … but then why did I always have to force myself to watch the next episode?

GATCHAMAN Crowds Insight – Conform or Die (Think For Yourself)

The hero we don’t deserve.

GATCHAMAN Crowds Insight may be the smartest stupid anime this season. For the first half of the season I thought it was bonkers, though I didn’t hate it—until I realized that the themes it was playing with are vital to our modern world. Watching it may make you a more moral human being.
