  The No More Heroes franchise is first and foremost a celebration of video games.

  ― This review was originally posted on March 26 2021. Violet Evergarden: The Movie is being released in the UK and Ireland from July 1. Many films tu…

  The latest in a line of largely forgettable mobile game adaptations, SEVEN KNIGHTS REVOLUTION joins Hortensia Saga and King’s Raid as a sad statement on where sword and sorcery fantasy fans can apparently continue to get their anime.

  Anime News Network’s editorial team picks their favorites from a packed season and which shows missed the mark.

  ― Best: Megalobox 2: Nomad I had mixed feelings about the original Megalobox because it felt (intentionally, of course) like a morbid death march masquerading as a sports show. It was hard to unreservedly cheer for Joe’s rags-to-riches story, and the final bout was somewhat anticlimactic. …

  Maesetsu! is a really enjoyable show… if comedy is your thing. If it’s not, then it can be a bit of a drag, especially in its early episodes.

  ― Maesetsu! Opening Act was a Fall 2020 series co-produced by AXsiZ and Studio Gokumi. The former, AXsiZ, is probably most known for Ms. Koizumi loves ramen noodles as well as its work on upcoming anime World’s End Harem. The latter, Studio Gokumi, has loads of…
