Sword Art Online: Ordinal Scale Review

I’m not dead! I’ve just been spending a lot of time writing up some egregiously long posts, one of which is finally out! It’s a review of Sword Art Online: Ordinal Scale, the SAO movie that finally showed in US theatres last week. I’m rather fond of SAO on the whole, so I enjoyed getting to watch the movie and I’m happy I had a chance to review it for Crunchyroll.

Aniwords – What’s the Deal with Kemono Friends?

I make my return to writing feature articles for Crunchyroll with an extremely topical question—why the heck is everyone so obsessed with Kemono Friends? If you’re curious about the most popular show of the season that you probably haven’t heard about, I’ve written a nice little introduction to it for you, along with some speculation about what it is about the show itself that’s made it such a hit!

The Top Anime of 2016

At long last, it’s here! To be completely honest, I found myself a bit wearied at the prospect of embarking on the great voyage that creating these posts always is, but once I actually got to the writing of it I found myself swept away by the sheer fun of remembering how much I like each of the shows I talk about. That, my friends, is a sign of a good list.
