Dragon Ball’s Latest Hit

Dragon Ball’s Latest Hit

Darren Davis, Staff Writer September 20, 2022
Toriyama’s “Dragon Ball” series has had plenty of movies, and while this new entry isn't the best of those films, it certainly is enjoyable. The goal of “Dragon Ball” has always leaned more towards entertainment rather than a deep, life changing story, and in that respect, this is the best of the few films i've seen of this franchise. 
Many options to choose from over the course of last summer

Anime Over The Break

Darren Davis, Staff Writer September 1, 2022
This summer has been slow: the calm before the storm. Many sequels of major shows were released during the latest simulcast, and though I would describe the season as a slow one, that doesn’t mean nothing worthwhile appeared. This season has had many a hits to pay attention to and these are the best to look at before the huge fall season…
Splash Screen Mashup

The Spring Anime Season

Darren Davis, Staff Writer May 27, 2022
Since the drought of anime caused by 2020, we haven't had one bad season of anime, and this spring simulcast was taking notes. Even after the insanity of last season with juggernauts like Demon Slayer and Attack on Titan, a show has still found a way to take the spotlight. I’ve been looking at three particular anime this season, and their developments have all certainly been interesting.
The movie’s title screen

A Sunken Tokyo

Darren Davis, Staff Writer May 16, 2022
Overall, Bubbles is a good movie that’s pretty much only held back by the current high standards of anime. Three years ago, this movie definitely could’ve been much, but as of now, it’s originality isn’t enough to carry it to the top. Watching it isn’t really necessary with better movies out there like Your Name or any Ghibli film, but if you’ve been over-saturated with anime’s sameness, this could be a nice break.
Not Into Anime Yet? Watch These

Not Into Anime Yet? Watch These

Ryan Prestigiacomo, Staff Writer April 19, 2022
Anime is an overlooked art by so many, for so many years of my life I was in this boat too. I always looked at anime as childish and below me, not worthy of watching, if you will. Spoiler: I was wrong.
Jujutsu Kaisen Zero | Review

Jujutsu Kaisen Zero | Review

Darren Davis, Staff Writer March 23, 2022
Since Jujutsu Kaisen (JJK) ended in March of 2021, the community has been craving more of its thrilling action. The film is based on the one volume prequel of JJK, and the movie rendition of it has filled the voids left open by the manga being made before the development of its main series. The movie is undoubtedly worthy of the hype surrounding it. The major pros come back in full force but it also leads to it retaining the same problems as season one.

A Colossal Legacy

A Colossal Legacy

Darren Davis, Staff Writer February 7, 2022
Attack on Titan (AoT) has been the face of anime since its initial release in 2013 and heralded as one of the greatest stories of all time. This show was large enough to bring the niche community into the mainstream while airing. As the final season airs and the ending grows closer, the show's colossal impact makes this finale feel like far more than just the ending to a master-class series.

Best Year in Recent Anime

Darren Davis, Staff Writer January 28, 2022
Finding a show to stand atop the rest in this unsurpassed year of anime is nearly impossible. The catalog in 2021 had a never-ending stream of fluid animation, incredible scores, and breathtaking stories. Every genre was showcased through an excellent show and no simulcast was left without an Anime of the Year contender.
