After a year of only being able to finish a few reviews each season before work/school/whatever else ended up taking time away from the shows I really wanted to talk about, a review revamp was in order. That's not to say that I won't do long-format reviews anymore, but I'm hoping that this style will fit better into my schedule.
About a minute into this show, there is a magical boy transformation sequence where a guy's shirt buttons fly off with sparkly sound effects just before his pants get ripped off. He then flies off into battle with the heroine on a pegasus.
Your reaction to those two sentences will determine whether or not you should be watching this show.
It's finally spring! The Spring season of anime, that is. This season, I'm going to try a couple different post styles in an effort to streamline things so that I can be more active on the blog and talk about everything that I want to discuss! The first thing is a slightly different format for the preview. Instead of covering everything (and I always missed things anyway), I'm just going to talk briefly about the shows I'm planning on picking up this season. So far, ten shows have made the list!
Last year, figure company Sentinel was the first to capitalize on the popularity of Levi from Attack on Titan, unveiling a prototype scale figure at Summer WonFest 2013, and then made waves again when pre-orders for the figure sold out in seconds at most online shops. I got lucky about a month later and was able to grab a preorder for him at slightly below SRP. So, how does the first release of the BRAVE-ACT line hold up?
Following the insane success of last year's anime adaptation, releases of Attack on Titan figures have started in the last couple months and will continue on into the forseeable future. GSC was one of the first to jump on the bandwagon with a Nendoroid version of the Colossal Titan, and the series line continues with Mikasa Ackerman!
