Judging an anime before I even watch it has been something I have denied doing in the past. "I don't do that!" I would protest when the topic would come up in conversation. Yet, having explored various series recently, I can say for sure that the past me was lying not only to the people she was talking to, but she was lying to herself as well. So, I'm going to take this as a chance to reflect on a couple of shows that I - and others - have judged a bit too much before watching.
I give you a glimpse into what I'm watching for the 2017 Summer season, including some very mysterious, dramatic shows!
I share my experiences of an incredible day in Birmingham, which included meeting the one and only Vic Mignogna!
In celebration of the Olympics, I've compiled my Dream Team - using just characters from anime and manga!
Following their success from the likes of Kuroko's Basketball, as well as their experience in producing other sports anime such as IGPX: Immortal Grand Prix (to a certain extent), the team at Production I.G. have figured out the right formula for creating a good sports anime. Based on the manga by Haruichi Furudate, this volleyball anime doesn't feel like other sports anime I've watched.
