Kick-Heart

A short one-off art piece from Masaaki Yuasa that focuses on distinct animation to tell the story, rather than dialogue. Short enough that it's definitely worth checking out, even if the style is vastly different from typical anime fare.

A fun, interesting, cute, and surprisingly substantial sitcom about character design and game development. Between Harbour's art and my programming, this was very relatable. Almost painfully so.

Prison School

A ridiculous, intense, sexy, and hilarious ride that simultaneously doesn't take itself seriously, yet is over-the-top serious.

A Certain Magical Index II

A remarkably dull sequel that progresses slowly with various non-sequitur arcs. When not in a monotonous fight scene, it's the same tired “jokes” of accidentally seeing a girl changing or naked, over and over again.

The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya

This is the best anime movie from a TV series that I've seen. KyoAni's love for their craft is strongly felt here in a beautiful and emotional piece. All the good of Haruhi improved while trimming all eye-roll moments.
