  • FEATURE: The SPY x FAMILY Jealousy Episode Highlights How Borfingly Heartwarming the Series Is

    All you need is wuv

    Dealing with a frustrated agent is one thing, but an angry pupper? Like a lot of things in SPY x FAMILY, Loid isn’t exactly ready for that hurdle, which makes his response even more endearing.

  • RESULTS: Who Is Your Anime Crush of 2022?

    Which anime character was the champion of making everyone’s heart go pitter-patter in 2022?

    A few weeks ago we gave you the impossible task of choosing A SINGULAR anime crush for 2022. Now it’s time to decide which anime character will be crowned the champion of making everyone’s hearts go pitter-patter. With so many fantastic characters to choose from, we realize asking you to pick just one was a bit cruel. Don’t worry, you aren’t the only ones who suffered as we also asked a few staff here at Crunchyroll to reveal their crush, too.

    “Dabi’s Dance” is one of My Hero Academia’s biggest moments this season. Looking back at the series as a whole, it’s an episode that’s been building up for a while now. The following list isn’t as beautifully dramatic as Dabi, but it does highlight how he’s been eagerly waiting for this moment for quite some time.

  • INTERVIEW: Chainsaw Man English Voice Actors for Denji and Aki Serve up Toast Toppings and Chicken Nuggets

    Eat Slay Love — copyright Reagan Murdock

    When speaking with Ryan Colt Levy, the English voice actor for Denji, and Reagan Murdock, the English voice actor for Aki, I had to ask about Denji’s infamous meal. More specifically I wanted to know if the aptly named Chainsaw Man would, perhaps, explore other options for his bread. Avocado, perhaps? Maybe garlic butter? What is Denji’s stance on egg-in-a-hole?

  • FEATURE: How the given Anime English Dub Is a Gift From the LGBTQ Community

    A lot of the team behind the dub is part of the LGBTQ community

    You can really feel how much an anime like given means to the queer community when you realize that they had a hand in its production. Certain scenes have a lot more weight to them (such as Ritsuka’s fears of being seen as weird) and hearing validation from fellow queer people truly makes an impact.

  • INTERVIEW: Chainsaw Man English Voice Actors for Denji and Aki Discuss What Makes a Good Dream

    Ryan Colt Levy and Reagan Murdock talk about dreams and a desire for the simple things in life

    I love anime characters who want to reach the top, but something about someone getting excited at the prospect of curry, a bath, and bed feels amazing. I said as much to Ryan Colt Levy, the English voice actor for Denji, and Reagan Murdock, the English voice actor for Aki, during our interview

  • FEATURE: Endeavor — The Perfect Number One Hero?

    It's what he (and a flawed hero society) deserve

    By the end of Season 4 of My Hero Academia I made a somewhat startling realization: Endeavor is the problematic hero that society deserves because he is a perfect reflection of society itself — a flawed mess that needs to do better whether forgiveness happens or not.

  • POLL: Chainsaw Man Creator Revealed Denji and Power’s Prank, but Who’s the Culprit?

    “Perhaps our prank went too far...”

    We’re not told what Denji and Power's prank is in Chainsaw Man Episode 5, but it’s one so foul that even Power wonders if the two of them took things too far. Considering her montage of not flushing the toilet or bathing regularly, this prank had to be quite the stinker. Chainsaw Man creator Tatsuki Fujimoto confirmed as much on Twitter.
