Soldiers!

Ever wondered what your favorite action figures and toys do while on their own? What if they could come to life and go to battle with one another, not for your amusement, but because that’s what they’re created to do? Frame Arms Girl is a unique series that explores just that, centering on tiny little robot girls based on real-life model kits of the same name by Kotobukiya.

Claudine [Review]

Claudine seems like a missed opportunity on all fronts. Author and artist Riyoko Ikeda is one of the most important manga creators of the latter half of the 20th century; few titles can claim the level of influence and the critical acclaim her 1970s classic The Rose of Versailles enjoys, and few of her peers...

Children of the Whales [Review]

The Mud Whale is a gigantic ship at the mercy of the shifting sands of a seemingly endless ocean. The 513 souls aboard—a people who exist holistically with the sand, wind, and sunlight—are not so much sailors as they are residents. The marked among them, those able to wield the telekinetic power known as thymia, have lifespans of about 20 to 30 years, while those who cannot wield thymia (the unmarked) can live to a ripe old age. Recording the daily happenings of all these people as well as governing decisions made by the mayor and the Council of Elders is a marked boy named Chakuro—the Mud Whale's official archivist, whose efforts are held in high regard for communicating sentimentality without outright mentioning emotions. All those aboard the Mud Whale are brought up to contain their emotions even though emotion is what strengthens thymia. The rationale behind this is woven into myth, but the truth is far more terrifying. During a routine encounter with another ship, a scouting/salvage party from the Mud Whale discovers much more than their society bargained for.

Please tell me! Galko-chan [Review]

This is not the “girl talk” you’re looking for. Very rarely can an anime grab your attention and make you squeamish before the opening credits even roll. It seems like a challenge, yet Please tell me! Galko-chan, which ran during the winter 2016 season, pulls it off swiftly. On the surface, it’s a simple show:...

Becoming a magical girl would be a dream come true for many. Transforming with an awesome talisman or locket? A cute dress?
