Even if you aren’t a fan of anime, chances are that you have heard of Attack on Titan (or Shingeki no Kyojin). Continuously growing in popularity, there is so much to love about this anime and it is easily one of the best to come out in 2013. Now that Attack on Titan has recently been added to Netflix’s Instant Watch, there is absolutely no excuse for you to not watch it. Or, if you prefer, it is also available via popular anime streaming service, Crunchyroll. But why exactly is Attack on Titan a must-watch? Well, Attack on Titan expertly conveys tones of horror while evoking emotional qualities that could bring tears to a grown man, along with having underlying hints of romance yet combating that with intense, badass combat scenes. Besides, who wouldn’t want to watch an anime in which the enemies are giant, naked, humanoid creatures that constantly have a terrifying grin on their faces and devour humans simply for pleasure? No one, that’s who.
Visually beautiful and action-packed with a quite unique, slightly “wtf?” storyline, Kill la Kill is arguably one of the best animes that are running right now. Following the storyline of angsty young high school girl, Ryuko Matoi, we watch as she tirelessly fights to seek vengeance for the death of her father, whose murderer she believes to be Honnouji Academy student council president, Satsuki Kiryuin. While Ryuko constantly attempts to fight Satsuki, she finds that the highly-regarded school leader is backed by students who sport Goku Uniforms that make them nearly indestructible. Fortunately for Ryuko, though, her father left her half of a scissor blade, which when complete, is one of the most powerful weapons in existence; however, her father's murderer possesses the other half of the blade.
Log on and get ready for the latest expansion of the hot MMORPG Elder Tale! The question is are you ready to play? Even if you’re not a gamer that’s ok because Log Horizon will literally suck you into the gaming world and pretty much hold you hostage, not that you’ll complain. Log Horizon guides you seamlessly through the MMORPG world until you’ll feel like a pro and start wandering the streets asking random strangers to join your guild all the while referring to your local barista as an NPC.
Ready your lab coats and have a seat-- but don’t forget to grab your cup ramen and a Dr. Pepper. Prepare yourself for what seems like the psychotic ramblings of eccentric self-proclaimed mad scientist Rintarou Okabe, nicknamed Okarin, or as he likes to call himself, Hououin Kyouma. He is one of the founders of “Future Gadget Lab”, a small research institution; though I will say you learn early on that his title of mad scientist is justly deserved! In the beginning it’s almost like watching a child play dress up for the first time. Then as the storyline progresses you’ll realize that even if his personality may seem like it, he’s really not playing around and he’s actually a bonafide genius completely worthy of the mad scientist title.
We’ve all been there: that moment where an anime is so good and everything is perfect. That is until you see it. In horror you try to cover your eyes but you can’t-- you may miss something good! So what else can you do but stare at it like a slow motion crash that you can’t take your eyes off of; the most horrible hair that you can never unsee. Here for your feasting pleasure are a few of the worst. Don’t get me wrong we can love the characters but it’s ok to snicker when you see their styles.
The time has come for Sailor Moon fans to bask in all of the Sailor Scout glory as Sailor Moon Crystal has finally graced the market. Sailor Moon Crystal is a revamp of the short-lived 1992 manga-turned-anime series, Sailor Moon. Crystal takes us back to the very beginning, allowing us to experience the transformation of Usagi Tsukino into Sailor Moon all over again. While Crystal undoubtedly brings a graphical overhaul from the advancement in technology over the past 22 years, it lacks a bit of the iconic Sailor Moon essence that fans of the series would hope to feel.
