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 »

What a year for anime 2012 was. There was a lot of bad, but a whole lot of good, and I was drawn in this year more than most. So, now, let’s discuss which ones made the top of my list this year!

12. Magi

This anime is only on here because it’s the least terrible of the terrible anime I’ve seen this year. The best of the worst if you will. And the reason for this is because when it’s good, it soars. When it’s bad, it’s awful. But I love the art style and character designs, and I think that it could have been a great show with a better script. As it stands, it’s fine, but it’s a real shame seeing as it had so much potential.

So 2012 is nearing to a close, and so are the anime series that have started (and ended, mostly) in this year. I was wanting to take a retrospective look on the anime this year, so I’ve compiled a list of my top 12 anime from this year, from 12 to 1. Without further ado, let’s begin~!

12. Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun

Making number twelve is a show from the current anime season. I usually don’t like to pass judgement on series before they’re done, but I’ve really been enjoying this show. It’s a shoujo show, but it definitely feels a little different than the generic shoujo that’s put out every once in a while. Refreshingly, the two main characters are blunt and honest to the point of being a little crazy, and it’s fun to watch. The heroine, Mizutani Shizuku, is mega-cute and is definitely one of the top girls this season. Shoujo generally gets the short end of the stick when it comes to anime, but surprisingly 2012 has been a fairly strong year for shoujo in anime, as you’ll see with the rest of the list.

Alright, so this week I’ll be covering the spring anime season. Not everything, just what I’m watching. Though that’s more than I expected, it seems. Anyway, not everything I’m watching has aired yet, so I won’t offer too much on those shows, but I’ve watched the first episode on everything I wanted to watch that’s out, so I’ll mention what I think about those. Well, without further ado, let’s go~
