Zone of the Enders: Hideo Kojima's (Not So) Forgotten Masterpiece Zone of the Enders: Hideo Kojima's (Not So) Forgotten Masterpiece

The story behind Zone of the Enders is almost that of Greek tragedy. Every time the series seems to find a footing something knocks it back down. For the better part of two decades this was how it was and will be. Now once again coming out of the Tokyo Game Show a glimmer of hope shines through the despair as Zone of…

Insane Marketing Blip: Final Fantasy is 30 years old this year and Square Enix is celebrating with (and this is not a joke) a pair of $55.00 French commemorative wines. Funny enough this isn’t the first time Square celebrated Final Fantasys 30th with some wine...

Question of the Weeb! Pick an Anime any Anime Question of the Weeb! Pick an Anime any Anime

As I was trying to come up with a Question for todays Question of the Weeb I like last week was conflicted. What could I say, should it be basic, should it be specific, what to do, what to do... then I thought of something the only rule is it has to be a question. It is Question of the Weeb correctly?

Dragon Ball FighterZ Looks Better Than The Anime Dragon Ball FighterZ Looks Better Than The Anime

As a fan of Dragon Ball Z and Super the news that Arc System Works was making a pure Dragon Ball fighting game immediately caught my attention. Past games spawned from the franchise have trended towards a more casual experience as seen in Dragon Ball Fusions an RPG, Dragon Ball Xenoverse a RPG/Fighter, and Dragon Ball…

"Death Note" (Netflix) Film Review - This is Death Note?  "Death Note" (Netflix) Film Review - This is Death Note? 

The title Death Note caries a lot of expectations for a large number of people, when making a film of a franchise there is two paths one can take. To be faithful or not. Netflix’s “adaptation” takes the path less traveled a wholly unfaithful adaptation of the beloved manga that revels in how unfaithful it is being…

Question of the Weeb Returns!  Question of the Weeb Returns! 

A bunch of authors recently have been discussing how one of AniTAYS best features have been missing in recent months. Of course its the Question of the Weeb, where you the reader and us the author have the chance to get to know each other better. The new generation of Question of the Weeb will be hosted every Friday…

Boruto - Naruto Gaiden Arc - Episode 2 Impressions Boruto - Naruto Gaiden Arc - Episode 2 Impressions

As we enter Week Two of The Sarada Uchiha Arc things are moving quite a bit faster then I was anticipating and that is such a good thing. The arc is moving forward at a brisk pace of about two chapters per episode, while there is still ample opportunity for filler from outside of Gaiden, at the moment the adaptation…

Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz - Glory of Losers Vol. 1 an Odd Take on an Old Classic Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz - Glory of Losers Vol. 1 an Odd Take on an Old Classic

While Gundam Wing may not be the best the Gundam metafranchise has to offer, after more then two decades the series remains near and dear to my heart as one of my first anime. As such when I heard its tie in manga The Glory of Losers was getting an official English release after more then a decade of serialization in…

How to Improve Pokemon GO in Three Simple Ways How to Improve Pokemon GO in Three Simple Ways

First let us get a few things out of the way. Yes people still play Pokemon GO, quite a few people actually. Second this will not be involving some key features that remain frustratingly unimplemented such as peer to peer battling and Pokemon trading. These are ideas Niantic can implement right now using the…

Tokyo Xanadu - Ten Things in Ten Hours Tokyo Xanadu - Ten Things in Ten Hours

Just how “anime” can a game be and still be a game? Tokyo Xandau is a game that asks this question of its player. Coming from the ever growing Persona clone RPG sub-genre Nihon Falcoms latest title to come West is a really hard game to pin down. On one hand it has a surprisingly dynamic battle system you can not wait…

Boruto - Naruto Gaiden Arc - Episode 1 Impressions Boruto - Naruto Gaiden Arc - Episode 1 Impressions

When Boruto: Naruto Next Generations the anime began I was convinced the anime would have... troubles, shall we say. Being nearly entirely anime original, the unsettling comparisons to Dragon Ball GT were all too easy to make. However at the time there was always a lingering idea in the back of my mind, what if they…

Final Fantasy XII: Hunting the Elite Six Marks - Without Playing the Game (Part I) Final Fantasy XII: Hunting the Elite Six Marks - Without Playing the Game (Part I)

Within Final Fantasy XII and its enhanced remaster The Zodiac Age the best part of the game is undeniably the hunts. With the story being relatively convoluted and the party often playing a tangential role to many events, Final Fantasy XII without its hunts would be a forgettable experience. Luckily hunts do exist…

Fairy Tail at the End Fairy Tail at the End

Do fairies have tails? It was a question that often popped up through Fairy Tails impressive 545 chapter run which after eleven years has finally reached its end with “Irreplaceable Friends”. Fairy Tail is the latest long running shōnen manga to see its end, as recently the genre has undeniably entered into a new…

Fairy Tail Series 3 The Final Season Announced! Fairy Tail Series 3 The Final Season Announced!

Not what I would consider to be a huge surprise Fairy Tail will be getting one final season in the near future. With the manga ending next week I was waiting for this news as I long suspected the series to continue once it had enough material for the final arc of the anime animated without filler. Furthermore with…

Castlevania (Netflix): A Too Quick Ride to the Maw of Hell Castlevania (Netflix): A Too Quick Ride to the Maw of Hell

As a lapsed fan of Konami’s Castlevania series I did not really know what to expect from this Canadian-American, anime inspired, R rated animated project. Honestly I am quite glad I came in blind as I expect this is a part of why I enjoyed the “series” so much. As the basic outline of the “series” is provided by …

Godzilla's Greatest Allies and his most Deadly Foes Godzilla's Greatest Allies and his most Deadly Foes

Godzilla King of the Monsters has an undeniable place in popular culture in both the East and the West and with his headlining of a new series of films his role in popular culture seems assured. As the lead of one of the most popular shared universe around Godzilla while awesome in his own right is not the only reason…

If you were Excited for Gundam: Twilight Axis Don't Be If you were Excited for Gundam: Twilight Axis Don't Be

The first“episode” of Gundam: Twilight Axis has been released and if the “series” is anything to go by the adaptation of the obscure novel will go down as one of Gundams most misguided ideas in recent memory. So much is wrong with this property it is hard to know really where to begin, however I think one must start…

Why Dragon Ball Super is Super Popular  Why Dragon Ball Super is Super Popular 

In North America it is pretty apparent that we are different from Japan on many counts, especially in preferences for anime. However one enduring commonality is the eternal popularity of Akira Toriyama’s Dragon Ball. With Dragon Ball Super fast approaching its third year on the air and its likeliest biggest and most…
