Alita: Battle Angel is a divine technical marvel amid a scrapheap of adaptations Alita: Battle Angel is a divine technical marvel amid a scrapheap of adaptations

I never personally experienced the Alita manga series or saw much from the OVA anime adaptation outside of a few select sequences here and there over the years. All I knew about the property heading into this movie were two things. The first of which being that the series was quite beloved by those who had experienced…

Koda's Anime Favorites of 2018 Koda's Anime Favorites of 2018

Welp, better late than never I suppose. 2018 was just a stellar year for anime, and I found myself consistently entertained all year long. In total I saw 51 anime to completion, with an outstanding 12 of them earning platinum medals from me, the highest praise I could grant a show last year. Needless to say, with such…

Dragon Ball Super: Broly is a triumphant and tragic revamping of one of the franchise's most divisive characters Dragon Ball Super: Broly is a triumphant and tragic revamping of one of the franchise's most divisive characters

Like many fans of the Dragon Ball franchise, I have been at war with myself for many, many years in regards to my feelings towards the character Broly. He was a creature of raw power who was a formidable adversary to our heroes time and again in several of the movies. Yet despite the pure overflowing aura of…

Crunchyroller Countdown: Top 10 Crunchyroll Series of 2018 No One Saw Crunchyroller Countdown: Top 10 Crunchyroll Series of 2018 No One Saw

It’s a tale we go through every year. With the sheer raw number of new anime created every year, it is difficult to keep up with many of them, and downright physically impossible to see all of them. As a result, there are a lot of intriguing or high quality shows that for some reason or another manage to slip through…

Koda's Fall 2018 Anime Progress Report Koda's Fall 2018 Anime Progress Report

I’ve noticed a rather annoying pattern as the year has progressed, the more work I’ve been saddled with at my job, the less time I have to watch anime, which in turn ends up pushing this seasonal progress report back further and further, with this being the nadir of this vicious cycle. At the time of this article…

Koda's Summer 2018 Anime Favorites Koda's Summer 2018 Anime Favorites

What a shock, another season comes and goes, and I don’t manage to get my end of the season article out until a month into the next season. Naturally I have a good reason for this, this time being the fact that I was busy moving during the end of the Summer season and start of the Fall season, meaning I didn’t exactly…

Koda's Summer 2018 Anime Progress Report Koda's Summer 2018 Anime Progress Report

What a shocking surprise, I yet again set a deadline for myself, and yet again I ended up passing it. Seems to be a running theme this year. Anyways, no excuse for it this time, I plain and simply ended up running a few weeks behind on some of the shows I was watching and ended up putting this article off to instead…

Koda's Spring 2018 Anime Favorites Koda's Spring 2018 Anime Favorites

Sorry for the...rather long delay. That’s what unfortunately happens when the perfect storm of being extremely busy at work and waiting for a certain show to finally end barrels down upon me and wrecks anything remotely resembling any sort of plans I had in terms of a timetable for getting this out before being…

Koda’s Spring 2018 Anime Progress Report Koda’s Spring 2018 Anime Progress Report

Better late than never, it is time to check in on where the 17 shows I am watching week to week currently stand with me. I originally intended for this to be done within the last two weeks, but a very untimely back injury sidelined me during that time, preventing me from dedicating the time necessary to get this…

Loot Anime Episode 29: Brave Unboxing Loot Anime Episode 29: Brave Unboxing

Well isn’t this a quick turn around? Ok, not really, the simple truth is the crate that was originally meant for March finally arrived...in god damn May. The theme for this crate is Brave and focuses around series where the main characters have to be brave in the face is ridiculous odds. The represented series are…

Loot Anime Episode 28: Tech Unboxing Loot Anime Episode 28: Tech Unboxing

Right, so I honestly have no real excuses for why this particular unboxing article is more than two months late. Between a combination of just being too busy some weeks and being too apathetic other weeks, the creation of this article was long in the making. Even more unexescuable however is how, somehow in that more…

Koda's Winter 2018 Anime Favorites Koda's Winter 2018 Anime Favorites

This season was quite chaotic for me out in the real world yet despite that I still managed to watch 16 shows to completion, with another 3 shows that continued on to the Spring season on top of that. Now to be sure, a big part of that is thanks to Netflix’s massive anime push this year. I didn’t manage to see all the…

Loot Anime Episode 27: Game On! Unboxing Loot Anime Episode 27: Game On! Unboxing

I know, I know, this one is incredibly late(as in about a month late), sorry about that. Just been difficult to find the time to fit in even simple articles like these ones. Anyways, moving on from the pity party, you’ll notice that for the first time in my series of Loot Anime unboxings, the header image doesn’t…

Koda's Winter 2018 Anime Progress Report Koda's Winter 2018 Anime Progress Report

So, this season has turned out to be a much busier one than I ever imagined it would be for me. As a result, several things ended up getting delayed longer than usual. From the relatively easy to do Loot Anime unboxing articles, to my 2017 favorites article, to even what was going to be my slate of first impression…

Koda’s Anime Favorites of 2017 Koda’s Anime Favorites of 2017

2017 was a year that really, really sucked in the real world. It’s a damn good thing that the world of entertainment stepped up in a big way to provide us with a little reprieve however, and anime was no slouch in this regard, delivering one of the strongest years in a good while. This past year I had decided to (yet…

Loot Anime Episode 26: Underdog Unboxing Loot Anime Episode 26: Underdog Unboxing

Hooray for busy work schedules! Makes for some delayed articles, but enough excuses from me, time to do a much belated unboxing! This crate’s theme is Underdog and features items from My Hero Academia, Black Clover, Saint Seiya, and...Batman and the Justice League. To be honest MHA aside this lineup doesn’t exactly…

Crunchyroller Countdown: Top 10 Crunchyroll Series of 2017 No One Saw Crunchyroller Countdown: Top 10 Crunchyroll Series of 2017 No One Saw

You know the deal by now, with the sheer number of anime released each season, let alone each year as a whole, it is just downright impossible to see every show that exists. As such it is extremely easy for many shows, including several really good or at least interesting series, to slip through the proverbial cracks.…

Crunchyroller Countdown: Top 5 Short Series of 2017 Crunchyroller Countdown: Top 5 Short Series of 2017

Anime shorts can be a great way to kill time. With their little snack-sized lengths, you can watch several episodes or even multiple series end to end in the time it would take to watch a single full length show. However at the same time shorts can vary wildly in quality, with some seasons only have one or two shorts…

Loot Anime Episode 24: Gods and Spirits Unboxing Loot Anime Episode 24: Gods and Spirits Unboxing

Well this unboxing is coming several weeks late. Not for anything wrong on Loot Anime’s part, either. I’ve just been extremely busy the last few weeks and much of my free time I could dedicate to making articles went to more important pursuits, so sorry about the wait. Anyways, this belated crate’s theme is Gods and…
