Crunchyroll’s #HeroWeek continues on, and so does my series on my favorite hero anime of the last few years. With Gatchaman Crowds already tackled earlier this week, now it’s time for a show that made it into my top 25 all-time favorite anime, Concrete Revolutio!
It’s #HeroWeek over at Crunchyroll, so I’m pitching in with a couple of essays on my two favorite superhero anime of the last few years—Gatchaman Crowds and Concrete Revolutio. Up first, Kenji Nakamura’s Gatchaman Crowds!
The future may not be so dark after all.
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.
In which the practice of taking copious numbers of screenshots justifies itself.
We muddle through like children, making our way through paths of war and peace.

It’s been quite a while since I first wrote about the orange manga about two-thirds of the way through its publication run on Crunchyroll. Now, an improbable anime adaptation has aired and I am compelled to, at last, put words to the feelings I have about the show. While I probably will continue to regard the manga as the superior version of the story, the merits of the anime adaptation are substantial—and, as you’ll read, ultimately none of that matters when it comes to orange anyways.
Much like Eureka 7 itself, my thoughts on the show are scattered, wide-ranging, and affectionate—so in lieu of anything resembling a traditional review or reflection, I present you with a series of mini-essays on various aspects of the show.
