The 2015 Winter anime season is flying by, and of course, there’s plenty of harem shows to go around. Usually, one episode of a harem show will feature one or more of the girls trying on clothes. This happens in Absolute Duo episode 4 and Shinmai Maou no Testament episode 6.

Male fashion is another story (I like to dress nice), but nonetheless, let’s start the fashion show!

In Absolute Duo episode 4, Julie Sigtuna is the subject of the clothes fitting. Let’s see her first outfit.

Nick: Hey readers, today we’re bringing you a special article. Kuroko no Basuke (Kuroko’s Basketball) has undoubtedly been a smash hit among anime fans, even those who aren’t basketball or sports fans. With the premiere of season 3, and as a longtime basketball fan, I thought it would be cool to compare the Generation of Miracles to current and past NBA players for those interested in learning a little more about basketball thanks to this show. And to help me with this is my longtime friend Dyer. To kick things off, let’s talk about the titular character, Kuroko. Which players does he remind you of? Continue reading »
