Attack on Titan is one of 2013’s most acclaimed anime titles. It’s also one that you probably shouldn’t watch right after eating dinner.
Project Blue Earth SOS
A rollicking retro-futuristic tale of alien invaders, boy geniuses, and cool gizmos that revels in its vintage style and flair.
Sword Art Online
Sword Art Online starts out with a lot of promise, but a poor narrative decision takes its second half in a much less interesting direction.
Kids on the Slope
That’s really the heartbeat of Kids on the Slope, the love and influence of jazz as it affects friendships, love affairs, and other teenage melodrama.
Sword of the Stranger
An increasingly dull and predictable storyline populated by characters that are a collection of clichés.
5 Centimeters Per Second
Here’s hoping that 5 Centimeters Per Second represents one last hurrah for Shinkai before moving on to new, and equally fertile territory.
Appleseed Ex Machina
Appleseed Ex Machina is primarily disappointing because it squanders so much of the depth and potential that existed in the original.
To attempt to come up with a more detailed plot synopsis is sort of beside the point, and to be honest, I don’t even know if it’s possible.
