Top 5 Anime of 2014

Compared to 2013, this year’s anime were rather lackluster. Last year had Monogatari Series Second Season, A Certain Scientific Railgun S, Bakuman, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, Non Non Biyori, Madoka Magica Rebellion, White Album 2, Psycho-Pass… it’s hard to measure up to all that. Regardless, there were certainly some standouts in 2014, and those are the ones that made the cut!

Persona 4 – The Game vs. The Anime

Since I actually watched the Persona 4 anime before playing the game, I figured I would re-watch it now that I’ve completed P4 Golden. This isn’t a review of either, just comparing some of the strengths/weaknesses of each against each other. I will be avoiding major spoilers throughout, so don’t worry!

Review – Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA-f

A rhythm game was certainly not high on my list for ideas of Vita games to get, yet here I am with a copy of one based entirely on vocaloid music. If you aren’t familiar with vocaloids, they are basically synthetic voices programmed to sing. For an example, check out the below video – it might also work well as background music for this post (and it’s also the opening theme for the game).

Review – The Garden of Words (Kotonoha no Niwa)

Above all else, this is absolutely gorgeous to look at, and is probably the best looking anime out there – and that is not an exaggeration. After watching this for the second time, I looked to see how many screenshots I had taken during the video – it turned out to be 262. When I tried to narrow those down for what to use here, I got it down to 179.

Review – Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God

Have you ever made curry? It’s a pretty simple dish, basically a stew of meat and veggies with a roux added in to bring the flavor of the various spices and thicken everything up. I never could have imagined that I would fail so much at making curry as I did in this game. Not that it actually matters too much, but it is a bit depressing, despondent, and woeful.

Top 5 Anime of 2013

Well, here’s my second “Top 5” list for last year. 2013 felt like a great year for anime, with several series that aired becoming some of my favorites. You’ll probably notice that I don’t have a #5, and I’ve explained why below – there are five anime on this list.

#4 – JoJo no Kimyou na Bouken / JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure
#3 – Toaru Kagaku no Railgun S / A Certain Scientific Railgun S
#2 – Psycho-Pass
#1 – Monogatari Series Second Season

Tidbits – What’s next?

Hello, everyone!

With it being a new year and since I’m still on break, I figured I’d outline what reviews/other things I’m planning to do in the relatively near future.
