“Magical☆Star Kanon 100%”
In case you couldn’t quite whet your appetite waiting for Megami-hen, it’s Kanon-chan and Elsie to the rescue!

「Border:1 – Ghost Pain」
It remains to be seen if ARISE will be a worthy addition to the Ghost in the Shell franchise, but it’s off to a promising start.

「煌めきの… 聖爆誕祭（スラップスティック・ノエル）」 (Kirameki no…Surappusutikku Noeru)
I missed Rikka’s adorable “auu~”s so much, and it didn’t hurt that this episode had what was probably the single best gag of the entire series so far.

「言の葉の庭」 (Kotonoha no Niwa)
“The Garden of Words”
When it comes to the visual side of anime – or animation – there’s Shinkai Makoto, and everyone else. Two different categories, period.

「ヱヴァンゲリヲン新劇場版:Q 」 (Evangelion Shin Gekijouban Q)
“You Can (Not) Redo”
When I posted my thoughts about Eva Q after seeing it raw in a Japanese theater last December, I opened with "What the heck did I just see?" After seeing the movie subtitled, I have two further thoughts on that. First, I sure as hell don’t blame myself for asking that question. And second, seeing it subbed doesn’t come remotely close to answering the question for me.

「リトル・ウィッチ・アカデミア」 (Ritoru Wicchi Akademia )
“Little Witch Academia”
From Studio Trigger comes Little Witch Academia, a product of Anime Mirai’s Young Animator Training Project. And suffice to say, I’m stunned, because Trigger does an absolutely AMAZING job with this OVA.

「宇宙（そら）と地球（ほし）と」 (Sora to Hoshi to)
“Two Worlds, Two Tomorrows”
The wide arrays of iconic mecha are broadly perceived as leading Gundam to its current success. In reality, the franchise is as much about the human side of the equation as the mecha and suffice to say, Gundam Unicorn (UC) delivered one of the most enthralling character studies in recent memories.

「劇場版 ブラッドシー ザ ラスト ダーク」 (Gekijo-ban Buraddoshī za Rasuto daku )
“BLOOD-C: The Last Dark”
Nothing like seeing Kisaragi Saya slicing and dicing through Tokyo — even if the experience is not without its fair share of flaws.

「妖精たちの合宿」 (Yousei-tachi no Gasshuku)
This OVA takes place in the middle of episode 153. It’s one of the funniest FAIRY TAIL episodes so far, and it made many of my fangirl wishes come true.

「鴨川デイズ」 (Kamogawa Deizu)
Welcome back to Kamogawa, circa the time between Season 1 and Season 2. Let’s take a little trip down memory lane…though first, I feel I should mention who should watch this.

「ストライクウィッチーズ 劇場版」 (Sutoraiku Wicchīzu Gekijouban)
“STRIKE WITCHES The Movie”
STRIKE WITCHES is surprisingly high up on my list of thoroughly enjoyable anime series which always makes it rather depressing to see how many people dismiss it with but a single glance.

「エウレカセブンAO -ユングフラウの花々たち-」 (Jungfrau no Hanabana-tachi)
“Eureka Seven AO: The Flowers of Jungfrau”
Any way you look at it the lead story in the Astral Ocean OVA is Ao in a dress, but there are actually a couple of semi-serious moments along the way.
