SOMEWHERE IN THE MOUNTAINS - An old AniTAY reviewer was spotted deep in the mountains this weekend, mysteriously absent from his old haunt. We filed this report from his old account, just to prove to people that the account can still be accessed.
I’m pleased to announce that frequent author Protonstorm has ascended to adminship, joining the existing team of Morie and I. Please give him a warm welcome and continue your regularly scheduled anime.
Ever wanted to know about Ani-TAY and what it is? Well, you’ve come to the right place. In response to preliminary feedback on the survey, here is your destination for learning the specifics of the Reader-Run community Ani-TAY and how you can get involved in the community.
Admin’s Note: Regarding the counterpoint article to the Leave MAL article yesterday, the author has decided to delete the article due to its emotionally charged nature. He never intended to defend any ideology and the intended effect was supposed to be to reiterate that one wrong is not necessarily enough to abandon…
Today I’m reviewing Muv-Luv, a visual novel developed by âge. On the surface, this game is a slice-of-life romantic comedy and it makes no excuses for itself. Under the hood though, this game is really something entirely different, and it’s very aware of this.
No explanation required.
I’m not entirely sure what Sekai Project will be announcing today or even talking about, but you can watch it right here at 3 PM Pacific.
There have been many examples of shows and games that have affected the culture of Ani-TAY. In my opinion, a disproportionate quantity of it came from an unlikely place: the incredibly campy Valvrave The Liberator, a show as controversial as it is famous on Ani-TAY.
One of our oldest traditions is the Ani-TAY Sunday Café. It’s a tradition that is older than the blog itself, but still survives due to new management today. It was always envisioned as a place for random chatter and amusing commentary. Today it still has much the same goal.
It’s not exactly common knowledge, but today is actually the official second anniversary of the Ani-TAY blog; the anniversary of the rocky start our grand experiment in an anime Kinja blog. Somehow, we’re still here! It’s second anniversary week at Ani-TAY, so join us as we kick it off.
Blimp: Gundam.info has put Mobile Suit Gundam SEED back up for streaming. These usually stick around for a couple of months before it gets rotated out for another Gundam show.
The Next World is a survival/strategy game set after your colony ship crashes on an alien planet. In the aftermath of the crash, you take command of the ragtag group of survivors as you search the wastes for supplies and attempt to build up your base, all the while searching for answers to explain why your mission…
It’s been a long time since I’ve chimed in with a review, but it’s a disservice to give Cho Dengeki Stryker anything less. What started as a fun action story ended with an incredible world and an even more powerful message. This is Overdrive’s finest hour.
Throughout the ages, we’ve seen countless heroes rise and fall in the superhero genre. With Chou Dengeki Stryker, we get to see a new one born from an unlikely place. At first, Stryker reminds me a great deal of both One Punch Man and Majikoi, but it’s a lot more than that.
One common refrain we’ve heard for months since the podcast relaunched into Season 2 was that it needed a new feed. Today, we can proudly say that we have a new home, complete with all the previous episodes, on http://podcast.anitay.org/

If there were ever a time for me to overanalyze something for no particular reason at all, the time is now. This is a frame-by-frame breakdown of everything I saw in the trailer.
I’m back to host the Café for the first time in a while, so this is a throwback installment of the Café. Got any stories from prehistoric Ani-TAY? Any old shows that you’re eager to suddenly go and watch recently?
As promised (although a bit late) here are the two Ani-TAY Muv-Luv Podcast episodes. This episode covers Alternative. This is a spoiler zone.
