Review: Ranma 1/2 Set 3

Japan News - 9 hours 4 min ago

After reviewing Ranma 1/2 set 2 earlier this month, I knew it was time to hunker down and dig deep. This series had a seven season run, and while this latest re-issue from Viz Media has resequenced the episodes to align more with the manga, there are still seven planned sets. It would seem as though 50-60 episodes in would be the appropriate time for Ranma fatigue to set in, which in my mind, makes set 3 a make-or-break experience.

Gather around, people. The next short in the Japan Animator Expo project has been uploaded (NSFW) onto their Website before its targets could draw their weapons. While the fourth piece doesn't bring the abstract goodness that ME!ME!ME! brought last week, Carnage has some neat elements that could be amazing if the short were to be fleshed out in the future.

Annotated Anime: Unlimited Blade Works episodes 4-7

Japan News - 18 hours 4 min ago

Happy Thanksgiving to all our American readers, as well as you savvy non-Americans who've appropriated their holiday as an excuse to stuff your faces! You might be full of coma-inducing food right about now, but we've got a nice hot dish of recaps for you, packed to the brim with the fall season's tastiest animation!

Ufotable may be sticking to its strange, see-saw pacing for its rendition of Unlimited Blade Works - once again I stand by my assertion that it would be better as a bi-weekly one-hour program, but doesn't disappoint whenever one of its odd-numbered episodes comes to the fore.
