In the end, neither the genki girl nor the tsundere can keep up with the super idol mecha pilot.
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.
Mylene can’t believe it, and neither can I.
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!
In which the practice of taking copious numbers of screenshots justifies itself.
How about a little theology along with your Nisio Isin manga?
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.

And with that, let’s get to it! As per our tradition (three years strong now!) here’s the Best Girl of 2016 to kick things off!
