No Gods or Kings. Only Man.
  Sasami-san@Ganbaranai (Sasami@Unmotivated) is very SHAFT. A useless description as everything the studio produces is by definition very SHAFT, but as an adjective it encapsulates the studio’s infamous approach: an unwavering confidence in delivery, a devotion to pop-culture and often a production...

Prismatic
  Your enjoyment of Vividred Operation can be accurately measured by whether you prefix “bums” with “little girl” in the phrase “it’s full of bums”. Thankfully you don’t need to wait long for an answer as it’s a scant twenty seconds into the first...

Eyehack
  Information about the new Ghost in the Shell anime (subtitled Arise) is being drip fed from its Production I.G. stewards and the vocal reaction has been disparaging. The voice cast has changed, the character designs are too moe, the soundtrack isn’t Yoko Kanno. Etcetera. To them I say: excellent....

Virtual insanity
  There will always be something enticing about the portrayal of MMOs within anime. Like .hack//sign before it, Sword Art Online tickles the fancy of those who revel in finding the glitches, the rare objects, the dark and hidden zones of online worlds that subvert the otherwise strongly governed...

Bomb voyage
  I will never be ready to talk at any great length about rape. Although I’m aware of, though not familiar with, the physical and emotional damage it leaves in its wake, there is nothing of value I can add to any discussion of it. This didn’t seem to stop the first three episodes of BTOOOM!...

Announcing fansub_ebooks
  An irreverent idea that has now been set loose upon the world. If you’re not familiar with the *_ebooks concept then the Wikipedia article on the most well known of them should fill you in. fansub_ebooks takes the idea, removes the spam and uses scripts from anime fansubs as its corpus. So you...

They’re just lights
  Once upon a time there was a girl who had lost her father. Her sister and mother were very upset, but this little girl didn’t cry, she refused to believe her father had died. This little girl was Rikka, and she wielded the Wicked Eye: able to summon tremendous dark power; and though she had...

4 episode taste test: Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo
  “A four episode taste test? And for a last season series? I haven’t been this disappointed in you since that lazy two episode taste test for Katanagatari! UNFOLLOWED.” It breaks the mould yes but not without some cajoling. In reality though this is a traditional three episode taste test because...

Fight the future
  Steins;Gate is a story of a broken, haunted man. It’s not about time-travel as any summary of the plot would imply, that’s just a vehicle for asking the question at its heart: how far would you go to save the ones you love? This isn’t some tag-line stolen from the latest silver-screen...

Listen to the voices of the children of the stars
  Eureka Seven AO was never going to be as good as its progenitor, Eureka Seven. Very little since has been as unyieldingly brilliant as that 2005 masterpiece and few could hope to match its expansive, multifarious characters and story. That AO makes a good stab is, paradoxically, to be commended...

A Japanese Judge Dredd
  It’s a heretical sentiment to anyone, British or no, who grew up with Dredd as a comic book icon. Comparing Psycho-Pass’ protagonist – a timid girl fresh out of the academy – to a Dirty Harry homage that was progressively retrofitted with philosophies from Thatcher’s Britian,...

Future Imperfect
  Already no stranger to delving into the future, anime this season sees Production I.G. produce two forward looking series with Psycho-Pass, a mid-future cyber-noir and Robotics;Notes, a close-future hyper-commercialised world of robot fetishism. A1-Pictures meanwhile adapts the far future Shinsekai...
