Superhero movies and shows are the big thing now, you can’t escape them they are everywhere and it’s not weird that given its popularity, some of it could pour over the Anime world. This season we got a show created by Stan Lee and directed by the creator of Mushishi, it is something, to say the least. But this was not the first time the cameo himself wanted to break ...

The religious and spiritual aspects of Japanese society in anime are mostly used by writers who borrowed them indiscriminately to give some of sort of meaning and deepness to their stories. While there’s nothing wrong with that, it does not take advantage of the richness and vast history behind it.

Spiritual successors are not rare in the world of anime, and I was really looking forward for Seiren, I thought it was going to be the successor of Amagami SS, it’s been a while since we had an omnibus-format romantic show and Amagami SS is one of my favorite anime.

As the seasons pass by, it becomes difficult to sort what I liked or not. Be one of a kind experience, finding the 2D way or whatever the reason might be, it’s always useful to revisit them to see if those shows still hold solid or the power of nostalgia goggles is really powerful. That’s why I bring another section to the blog where I review shows that I enjoyed ...
