A seemingly one-man spectacle that was actually supported by dozens of talented individuals – that’s the power of the one and only Yoshimichi Kameda!
The Winter 2019 season is already starting, so we’re back to do our usual job: figuring out which new titles have premises with high potential and creative crews that can do them justice, to save you the headache of doing it yourself! Let’s run down the most interesting offerings this season, both the ones you’re already expecting and some curious surprises.
Welcome back to the most special post of the year! As is tradition, we’ve gathered writers from different communities but a shared trait: a love of animation and all it encompasses. The goal, to praise at length the greatest productions and most resonant direction in all of 2018 anime, according to a series of categories. These are our yearly anime awards – the sakugabowl!
Our animation archive Sakugabooru celebrates its fifth anniversary today, having grown more popular than we ever could have hoped for. After all this time we’ve amassed plenty of information regarding people’s favorite pieces of animation: the most beloved artists, the nature of those sequences, what kind of format and even length are favored – enjoy this very illustrative look at how fans all around the world consume animation!
Mob truly was Saikou.
After leaving a strong impression for twelve consecutive weeks, this gem by the name of Mob Psycho 100 is over. And what a ride it was!
It would certainly be easier to talk about things other than Mob Psycho if it stopped having these outrageously strong episodes. How insensitive of them, not considering the feelings of lesser productions that struggle to appear in this column.
TV anime episodes handled by a single key animator are a rarity nowadays. When it comes to latenight series, only a few shows with balanced schedules or short length can afford them. And with this episode, Mob Psycho joins their ranks.
What happens when an unconventional artist known for his loose drawing style does animation direction for a TV anime episode? We get a masterpiece like this, apparently.
