Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid By Christopher Kinsey Crunchyroll has become a force in American anime distribution over the last eleven years.  It began as a place to “share” anime in 2006 and tapdanced around the legality of streaming at the time.  Buying ad space to promote itself, in 2009 it...

RE: Zero

RE: Zero A review by Christopher Kinsey I figured this series was ruined for me from the get go.  The hype in anime circles was mostly about how, at the end, the protagonist chose the wrong girl.  I’ve never been one for “waifu politics” as I’ve been calling it, but the sheer amount of...

Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus by Max-Vader Alright, let’s start with the most obvious thing this series is known for: Fanservice.   Titties on a ninja, etc. Now that we’ve got that out of the way, what else actually is there to Senran Kagura? “Nothing”, I thought...
