Breaking the Narrative Episode 117: Breaking a Review of Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam!

B

On April 7th, 1979, the first episode of the original Mobile Suit Gundam aired in Japan to very mixed reviews, pulling a Star Trek in becoming a cult classic in syndication after the initial airing. This is thanks to the creation of toys and model kits during the early 1980’s to grow the popularity of the initial anime.…

Breaking the Narrative Episode 93: Boy’s Love or Simple Male Bonding? A Review of Banana Fish!

B

This summer season of anime has shown some of the usual mindless fare that could be expected. However, there is one anime this time around that has honestly shocked me, something rare for this day and age to be sure. Before I begin, I want to explain that this particular title is not simply purely for adults but is NOT for the faint of heart.…

As I’ve been talking about for the past month or so, back in November of last year (oddly enough released an exact year to the day I had this review published,) river City Rival Showdown was released stateside by Arc System Works. If you are big in the gaming scene you’ve probably heard as of late they were the ones developing the game Dragonball FighterZ and the like.…

Breaking the Narrative Episode 63: What is With Anime This Year? A Review of “My Girlfriend is a Serious Bitch!”

B

Hooo boy everyone… I did NOT see this one coming. This is going to be a rare bird for me as it literally just came out right before the writing of this so you are kind of getting my live reactions to the content. There is only one episode as of this writing but when I saw the title “僕の彼女がマジメ過ぎるしょびっちな件” which Romanizes into “Boku no Kanojo Majimesugiru ShoBitchi na...
