Today I’m reviewing Muv-Luv, a visual novel developed by âge. On the surface, this game is a slice-of-life romantic comedy and it makes no excuses for itself. Under the hood though, this game is really something entirely different, and it’s very aware of this.
Muv-Luv, the visual novel franchise that inspired Attack on Titan a decade ago, is now on Kickstarter to be officially localized in English for the first time. Muv-Luv Alternative, one of the novels to be localized, is considered by Japanese and western audiences to be one of the greatest visual novels in history.
The Ani-TAY collab is back with another edition for an excellent season. We’ve got 11 shows that you might want to check out, three of which are sequels. Come on by and see what we’ve got for you.
Because we don't like you either, New Hampshire.
Ani-TAY is back for another season of recommendations in anime. It’s been a slow season and we’ve all felt it, but we’ve still got seven anime you should check out, and a couple that you should think about.
In the latter half of 2014, the Under the Dog kickstarter campaign finished its funding at over $850,000 with over 12,000 backers. Now, after months of silence, Creative Intelligence Arts, LLC (CIA) has announced that they're leaving the project. Here's why you should or shouldn't be worried.
Let's face it, there aren't a lot of cool jobs in the world. You know what sounds cool? Mechs. Those giant bipedal machines of destruction. Those ought to be fun right? Well, I've rounded up a few mecha pilots to give their take on the profession. Let's see what they have to say.
I'm a pretty big fan of Fafner. When I watched the first series last year, I found a series that will consistently find a place among my favorite mecha shows. So that's why I'm here to tell you that you have no excuse to watch this show without having watched the first show and sequel movie.
Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 poses a question: What would happen if Tokyo were hit by a long-expected 8.0 magnitude earthquake? How would society react? What would the world look like after it? It asks all this through the eyes of two children caught in the dead center of the tragedy.
What would you do if you, tied to the fates of four other strangers, suddenly received a massive amount of power? With no direction given to you, what would you use it for? How would others like you use it? Would you be a hero? A villain? A power broker? Would you build yourself a kingdom? That's what the visual novel…
For the last year I've had a problem. I've watched several shows that I never really wanted to review, mostly because I'd dwell too much on one element and never move on. I knew it. That said, the assets and notes still exist, so instead of reviewing each one individually, I'll just blitz on through my "purgatory"…
About ten years ago, which would have made me about eleven at the time, I was flipping channels just as any kid of my generation probably would have been on a quiet Friday night. Somewhere along the line I ended up on a the Sci-Fi Channel. What was on? A show called Stargate SG-1.
Today Ani-TAY fires back with a list of ten anime this season to watch, collated from the opinions of twenty collaborators this time, topping our last by four people. We've got nine new shows and one sequel that just might strike your fancy.
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…
The Idolm@ster Movie: Beyond the Brilliant Future! is the sequel movie to the Idolm@ster anime series, which itself is based off the popular Idolm@ster series of simulation games by Namco Bandai. The movie is everything you want out of a continuation movie without many of the drawbacks.
Just over one year ago, I returned to anime for the first time after swearing it off in 2008. One year since I started mashing my reviews all across TAY's front page. One year since I rediscovered how much I missed the singular imagination that animation is capable of conveying. Even so, I realize that there's even…
Today I look at Killer Queen: a death game thriller by doujin group Flat. It follows Soichi in a 73-hour fight to the death in a strange building with 12 other people. Soichi needs to choose how to live his life in a game where his next second might be his last.
Ever wanted to just jump right into a random episode of a show and just start watching with no information? No? Ever wanted to see a whole team of disproportionately critical individuals do it and then review each episode independently? Well, we kinda think it'll be entertaining, so why not?
Earlier today mdubs forced my hand by making a hype article, so naturally I have to hype my most anticipated show of the season. If you've ever seen Super Sentai or the American derivative Power Rangers, then this show might be for you. It's a parody show that pulls out all the comedy it can, even the odd stuff.
A number of people on the Ani-TAY chat just don't like Aldnoah.Zero, I definitely don't. Somehow we decided that Aldnoah didn't deconstruct Gundam nearly enough, so we decided to take it a step further. I won't spoil it for you.
