First of all, my apologies for a long, looooong layoff of six months since I last posted here. That was in large part due to inspiration simply not striking for me over that span of time. But now, thanks to an anime awesomely trainwrecking, intensely invigorated inspiration has struck anew!

Figured it’d be good for a change of pace.
That is, if you were to describe “nostalgia” as the year 2007 and the show, Lucky Star.
Oh man, Fate/Zero is back and the first episode just reinforced everything I love about the show – it’s big, it’s beautiful and off the charts charismatic.
A potentially weird love story from student to teacher, a student to alien, and another student to the latter student. Weird, but still a better love story than Twilight.
SOPA is not going to like this anime.
Please follow along with me as I go through my final countdown for this “Anime Year in Review” series. So far I’ve focused on characters, but now I will focus on the shows themselves. I present to you what, in my view, where the Ten Best Anime Shows of 2011! Continue reading “Top 10 Anime Shows of 2011.”
