Comparing to the slapdash selection of stories of the first few episodes, episode 7 demonstrates that Junji Ito Collection may have finally hit its stride. These two segments have a clear theme in common that is not immediately apparent when separate. But, together, they strike at a real societal horror.
Slice of life is a storied genre of anime that longtime viewers will know… has never been entirely my cup of tea. I can appreciate when it’s done well, or packaged with an especially compelling hook (like last season’s Girls’ Last Tour), but slice of life always has — and likely always will — be fighting an upward…
I’m gonna lead off with the question real quick for the tl;dr before I go long into how I got there: What’s your favorite instance of either a tabletop RPG featuring in anime/manga/LNs, or an anime-based occurance in a tabletop game you’ve played?

“Where’s part 1?” Shut up.
So, this season has turned out to be a much busier one than I ever imagined it would be for me. As a result, several things ended up getting delayed longer than usual. From the relatively easy to do Loot Anime unboxing articles, to my 2017 favorites article, to even what was going to be my slate of first impression…

On the pages of the newest issue of Shueisha´s Weekly Young Jump it has been revealed that the new season based on the manga Tokyo Ghoul will come on April 3.
Recently, the two anime that have been sticking with me the most on a double digit anime series binge have been GARO: The Animation and Fate/Apocrypha. The characters in both are fantastic and give plenty to chew on as not only the episodes go on, but long after the finales. I really want to write on the two,…
