Why Muv-Luv Was a Defining Entry in Modern Science Fiction

I know what you're thinking. "Dex, you're writing about this again?" Yes, yes I am. I'm talking about it again because it really was a defining entry in the genre, at least for me. It was the culmination of the intersection between sci-fi, deconstructionism, and postmodernism for the modern era, and it continues to be. » 11/10/14 2:20am 11/10/14 2:20am

Locodol was a Light Comedy, Which is Just Fine

Last season had a lot of mixed reactions from my fellow Ani-TAY compatriots, but surprisingly almost everyone I know that watched Locodol agrees that it was a strong entry in the season. It's a comedy show that draws from the idol genre to make an entertaining twist on the usual. » 10/15/14 6:40pm 10/15/14 6:40pm

In Defense of the Idol Show

It's not secret that many anime fans enjoy picking on the idol show: the symbol of the perceived decline of serious anime. I've been a fan of anime since the early 2000's and I couldn't disagree more with this consensus.
