My 5 favorite anime of 2010

Before I get to the main content of this post, I just want to apologize for the recent lack of blogging. I’ve been very ill this past week and haven’t been able to do much of anything except lie in bed in a fevered stupor. Currently I’m on the road to recovery but I’m still pretty weak. However, I wanted to keep up my New Year’s tradition of picking my five favorite anime from the passing year…

Katanagatari review

ずっとね by ちゃぼ

I recently finished Katanagatari, a series by the same creator as Bakemonogatari, and one of the more unusual anime to come out this year.

Another look at the trend of frequently changing anime OPs and EDs

Earlier this year, I wrote a post about how many recent anime series have had openings and/or endings that change frequently in song, animation, or both, sometimes as often as every single episode. Though it’s happened in a few cases for older anime, it seems like the trend has really taken off this year…

Thoughts on anime shipping

Shipping – a part of anime fandom that invites some of the most extreme feelings of passion and dispassion amongst fans. Though I know there are plenty who love anime without caring about shipping, I’m sure most of us do or did have at least one shipping pair we were into. I too have gone through a few favorite ships, though more so in the old days than now…
