Yep, yet ANOTHER article on Yuri on ICE. But I swear I have a good reason this time, since Crunchyroll's first ever Anime Awards ended up being butchered by popular vote, especially when it came to categories that Yuri on ICE was nominated in. With its runaway success, I would like to take a moment to explain why I did not like the anime as much as others. In fact, I found it rather lacking in multiple departments.

I don't get to review a whole lot of dark stuff, mostly because most dark stuff nowadays is also really bad. But what's not bad is a manga from Mouri Koji known as Suicide Island. This manga is graphic, gratuitous, and all -in-all a very raw tale of failed suiciders learning to survive on a deserted island. More after the jump.
With Winter and Spring bringing in the 2016 year, it's quite the healthy start for anime! Read Part 1 of this article for a full breakdown on those seasons. But with this article, I'll be going over what I watched in Summer and Fall. While Summer was jam-packed with a ton of anime I watched, Fall was....well, hit the jump and find out.
The year is over and done, and with it came a lot of great and not-so-great anime. Although I was not able to watch everything, I would like to talk about the different ones I managed to see. However, this list is too big, so Part 1 will be for Winter and Spring, and Part 2 will be for Summer and Fall! Hit the jump to find out my thoughts on everything I watched for Winter and Spring of 2016!
Well, time for the last article of 2016! With 30 minutes to spare! This article is about a manga-turned-anime that I had just found out had become an anime about 5 hours ago. Watching the first few episodes, not only do I find it more entertaining than I figured, but also a very romantic and dramatic take for an unrequited love between two girls. More after the jump!
I don't typically do more than one article on a particular subject, but this is one I've thought about for a while. Being the apparent highlight of the season for most people, Yuri on ICE!!! continues to captivate others in its final episodes. Unfortunately for me, the anime has gone from decent to sub-standard. But one of its saving graces is also a point against the anime, and that is Yuri Plisetsky just being a more interesting character than Yuri Katsuki. More after the jump.
Get ready for an even weirder article. Not only is it my first time doing an article on a movie, but it's also on one that hardly anyone actually knows. But don't let the unusual casting fool you, because Bernie showcases my favorite form of Story-Telling, the careful and precise Art of Corruption. More after the jump.
