Xel’s Top 10 Anime Openings

 Mirai Nikki - Kuusou Mesorogiwi https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DbqykQH1ZME Mirai Nikki is so incredibly stupid, yet I loved every minute of it. It's a trainwreck of a story in which the most extreme of solutions is the first solution. But sometimes the best thing you can do is stop giving a fuck and enjoy the ride. How can [...]


Can Evangelion 3.00+1.00 live up to expectations?

5 years later and I still can’t believe how incredibly pissed off I am about Evangelion: 3.0. After so many years and one, Hideaki Anno directed Godzilla film later, we've finally gotten some news regarding Evangelion 3.0+1.0. in the form of a new poster. The thing is, while I'm definitely going to watch 3.0+1.0 the [...]

But at least the fight scenes made up for it, with some very impressive animation. The [...]

Netflix, please stop buying exclusive anime streaming rights

It was recently announced that Fate / Apocrypha is going to be released exclusively on Netflix in America, on November 7th. No, Netflix. I’m not going to wait four months to watch a show everyone else is watching weekly. This is what happens when a streaming company gets involved in a medium they don’t understand. [...]

Xel’s Seasonal Anime Wrapup – Spring 2017 (Part 1)

I haven’t been this critical about an anime season in a long, long time. Generally, I have always given out 7’s across the board, but there was no way that was happening this time. I’m afraid I’m starting to grow into the elitist mentality I’ve always hated. Ever since getting into seasonal anime back in [...]
