When it’s easier to pay than to pirate
  Earlier this week, Netflix announced that it will begin streaming Neon Genesis Evangelion in April 2019. The 1995 Evangelion TV series is not only one of the most popular anime ever made, it’s also one of the rarest to own on US/UK home video. Since 2005, for various reasons, it has seen neither...

Exciting new anime coming out in 2019
  In the afterglow of last week’s Fruits Basket anime announcement, it dawned on me that 2019 is going to be a particularly exciting year for anime. Enthused, I dug a bit deeper into what 2019 has in store for us and, well, hold on to your hats! Fruits Basket As far as shoujo anime goes, 2001’s...

Existential sci-fi manga! Identity & control in Toward the Terra
  What is my place in this world? What am I supposed to be? I ask myself these questions every day. I first stumbled across Toward the Terra in 2007, when the latest anime adaptation based on Keiko Takemiya’s 1977 manga series was airing. It’s become one of my favourite stories in anime...

There’s just no escaping anime, is there? (Autumn 2018 impressions)
  It’s Autumn in the UK now. It’s cold and wet outside, the nights are drawing in and there’s the first inkling of frost in the mornings. Don’t fret though, a new anime season is here to keep us alive, so pour yourself a hot drink (unless you’re one of those weird people...

Heaven’s Arena arc of Hunter x Hunter
  I love the idea of Heaven’s Arena, which is a massive skyscraper with over 200 floors described as a mecca for martial artists. New entrants begin at the bottom and gradually work their way up, each further level bringing with it stronger opponents and better prize money. At the 200th floor, the fighters...

Anime like B: The Beginning
  B: The Beginning was released on Netflix last week. It’s a fun watch, with some great action backed up by the ever reliable Production I.G. Sword fights should be visceral, fleshy affairs, decided in a split second after a flash of aggressive, fluid movement. B: The Beginning’s main character has...

The balloon scene in Made in Abyss
  A balloon is a fragile thing. When Riko releases her balloon into the sky at the end of Made in Abyss, we see it lift it’s tiny payload. It’s crazy. How can something so fragile and small make it all the way to the top, past all the dangerous creatures and sharp rocks? A message in a bottle cast...

Rediscovering Shonen Jump anime
  Watching anime, I go through peaks and troughs. The start of the year was a peak, but throughout February, I’ve been in a bit of a trough trying to find something new to watch and fall in love with. At some point, I remembered that there’s a whole bunch of Shonen Jump anime that I should get back...

ANIME ROCKS: Ergo Proxy’s OP
  I thought I would write about my favourite anime openings and endings, but where to start? I trawled through some recent anime, but if I’m honest, they weren’t doing it for me. I love all different types of music, but in my heart of hearts, I’m a rock fan, and it feels like most recent anime is...

Great romantic fools: The Night Is Short, Walk on Girl
  In 2017, Masaaki Yuasa directed The Night Is Short, Walk on Girl, which is a film set in the same fictional universe as his 2010 series The Tatami Galaxy. I really liked The Tatami Galaxy. I remember thinking that it was a more conventional (and therefore more accessible) anime than his other works...
