Animate! The Sci-Fi Fanatic BIG 20: Anime

What better way to promote and shine a light on anime than to present to you anime animated.

Can you think of a better way to taste the possibilities?

Fall 2013 Anime Mid-Season Impressions (Part 2/2, L-V)

So, another season of anime reached its half-point and it's time to watch my mid-season impressions, where I talk a bit of the show and rate it. This part's shows have some really catchy OPs/EDs, so you'll get more of them.

Due to how many shows I have to cover (15), I've cut them into two halves, sorted alphabetically. The shows within each episode are sorted roughly by excitement generated within me or how good they are. I've also bolded in the following lines what shows I'll recommend people without reservations.

Night Raid 1931 Review (Japanese)

I love the 1920s-1930s. Granted it's more for the smooth jazz, vaudeville, and those flapper girls but it's still my favorite decade. Looking at the same decade from a different country seems like a really interesting idea right? Well... I'm not so sure about this one...

Night Raid 1931 is an original 13 episode Action/Sci-Fi series from A-1 Pictures and Director Jun Matsumoto for the Spring 2010 season. Three additional OVA episodes from the same Director and Studio were released later that year. As of this review, it is licensed by Sentai Filmworks (US) and Siren Visual (AUS). It is also available for legal streaming on Crunchyroll, Hulu, and Anime Network with Hulu and AN having the additional OVA episodes.
