Staff returned with this adaptation of Kamachi’s Index side story/companion, A Certain Scientific Railgun. Whereas Index followed Toma Kamijo and his magical friend Index, caught in the middle […]

Emma: A Victorian Romance – Season Two

| April 19, 2013 | 0 Comments

Emma: A Victorian Romance season two seems to be almost an entirely different show than its previous season. The plot, while still languid, seems to be quicker and fuller. This may come from the fact that there is more conflict inherent in the story lines. Emma and William have gotten to know each other during […]

Sweet Blue Flowers

| April 2, 2013 | 0 Comments

Admittedly, Sweet Blue Flowers (Aoi Hana) is not the sort of show I‘d normally go out of my way to see. Adapted from the even still ongoing manga by Takako Shimura, this 2009 “Girls’ Love” anime is a slice-of-life story about a group of Japanese high school girls, some of whom, including our protagonist, Fumi, […]

Shakugan no Shana: Season III

Things are quite different for Shana and Yuji in this, the final series of Shakugan no Shana (but not in a bad way). No longer is the action set exclusively in Misaki City. And gone is the slice-of-life, high school material that supplemented the series’ broader, battle-based narrative in which Shana, Yuji, and their allies […]

Natsume’s Book of Friends: Season 3

Natsume’s Book of Friends: Season 3

| March 15, 2013 | 0 Comments

Natsume is without a doubt the single most genuinely wholesome and altogether feel-good series I’ve ever encountered, truly as inviting and comforting a program as you could realistically hope for. And this despite focusing largely on one Japanese high schooler’s daily interactions with yokai (spirits, or monsters, of Japanese folklore). As related in my previous […]
