Somali and the Forest Spirit

A beautiful, heart wrenching and heartwarming adventure in a gorgeous fantasy world. With rich world building, heavy topic exploration, and my kryptonite: the "Learn to be Human" trope. Get tissues.

Spice and Wolf

It's "Stonks: The Anime!" No, but really. A mature, slow burn romance in a fantasy setting with several entertaining economic thrillers along the way. A change of pace from modern anime, but it does lack drive.

Great Pretender

With a more adult tone than most anime, this felt like Cowboy Bebop meets Matchstick Men in a bright, bold, modern style. Definitely worth checking out.

Gurren Lagann

A bold and saturated experience of strong creative expression fueled with raw Saturday Morning chutzpah. Ridiculous and charming, it defies all expectations.

MIRAI

Mirai is a magical family-focused movie that feels like a modern, Japanese "Coco" but with much less stress and more appreciation for simple things.

Goblin Slayer

A visceral love letter to Dungeons & Dragons, high fantasy, and tabletop RPGs that highlights the ugliness and toll such a world would take on its characters.
