Yeah, it’s still a big name series though so I guess they decided to go for it. To be fair, I totally want to watch it even though I didn’t care for the second season (ironically can’t watch because it’s on prime).

You know, I totally didn’t realize it but you’re right. Amazon has a crazy selection of gritty adult anime this season with Vinland Saga, Psycho Pass 3, and Babylon. Really need to get prime so I can watch these.

Fantastic article. I hadn’t seen Girls’ Last Tour before but this made me want to watch it. I was also so interested in the article that I couldn’t help but read the spoilers sections too. I guess that’s what you get for being a good writer kev.

Hey Heather, great article and thank you for sharing. Quite a whirlwind couple of weeks in the kinja-verse, to say the least. We all really appreciate your and the rest of Kotaku’s efforts. The personal touches you guys put into your work is what has made Kotaku my go-to for video game journalism for years.

There aren’t enough takes that really explore what makes Angel Beats special. Nice work and glad to see someone repping this on AniTAY

Yes, they might be deleting AniTAY. We don’t know for sure and haven’t been contacted directly. Still trying to reach out to clarify the situation.

I’m jealous of your limited edition. I’m a huge fan of this movie, I’ve probably seen it 3-4 times since it came out. Actually like a year ago there was a podcast episode about it if you’re interested: Read more

Really great review. I think that separately talking about the gameplay and the story was a smart choice with this one. Read more

Great selections. I haven’t seen Promare but I desperately want to with that soundtrack.

I really like the look at how this anime nails the sort of relationships with people that you yourself were able to form through video games. Ironically, this is the only Sword Art Online show that I haven’t seen yet, but I want to check it out at some point and these sorts of articles make it seem like it will be Read more

Interesting, it looks like they switched the art style back to the Kalos series look

I am deeply regretting missing this in theaters over here now. At least movie blu-rays are almost affordable

I agree that a lot of romance stories are wish-fulfillment/escapist. To be honest, if that’s all it was I’d probably be on board. As you mentioned, the “manic pixie dream girl” trope is extremely common and frankly I don’t care for it much. It tends to reduce the girl character into an object of desire for the Read more
