S.W.A.T. Reviews: Spring 2014 Pt. 1

April 21, 2014

The premise of these reviews is simple: watch the first episode of a series and then immediately sit down to record a review mini-podcast. The reviews are five- to ten-minutes long and entirely off the cuff. As always we only review new shows (so no sequels or continuations) and try to avoid anything that just looks outright awful. These are the first batch from the new season:

Listen – First impressions of Haikyu!! from Production I.G. It is streaming on Crunchyroll.

Listen – First impressions of Captain Earth from Studio BONES. It is streaming on Crunchyroll.

April 7, 2014

A new short podcast series! First impressions are great but what about our thoughts after we’ve watched an entire series week to week?

The March 2014 Line-Up

March 31, 2014

narutaki_icon_4040 Both U.S. and Japanese manga companies are bringin’ it! Way to step it up in the digital age! I’m very excited to try all these new titles.

Also whoa a ton of new anime and manga announcement from Japan this month, I thought they would never end!

hisui_icon_4040 I have to say that Crunchyroll’s manga selection is really growing quite nicely. Any time we have desire to see a particular genre of manga on the site they tend to add it quickly thereafter.

The Line-Up is a monthly rundown of new anime, manga, light novel, artbook licenses, streaming/broadcasting announcements, crowdfunding projects, anime/manga projects, and live-action anime/manga adaptions.
