  • Why You Should Watch "The Ryuo's Work is Never Done!"

    First impressions can lie sometimes.

    At first glance, The Ryuo's Work is Never Done! seems like the Ro-Kyu-Bu! series, which is also a story about a teenage boy mentoring underage girls in a competitive sport/game.

  • Measuring the Power Levels in "Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma"

    It's tough to compare cooks.

    In many ways, Food Wars! is basically any good adrenaline-filled shonen battle series, just with food instead of fists.

  • The Meaning of "WorldEnd's" Title

    WorldEnd is a story about heroes, but not the kinds of heroes you'd expect.

    “What do you do at the end of the world? Are you busy? Will you save us?” These three questions make up the title of WorldEnd: What do you do at the end of the world? Are you busy? Will you save us? It’s a ridiculously long title to be sure, but in this anime’s case all three questions reflect the story’s main themes accurately.
