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.
A fun (though verbose) Fate/Zero spinoff that channels the vibes of Sherlock Holmes, Hogwarts, and the Fate Universe, with a myriad of cameos from other Fate entries.
Despite poor animation, Higurashi brings a unique and potent horror experience that will stick with you for days or weeks on end.
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.
A gorgeous and fresh experience with masterfully crafted music and visuals and strong emotional elements.
For having the same writer, composer, and animation studio that brings us Fate/Zero and the Heaven's Feel movies, Garden of Sinners has stellar animation and music for a boring, unconvincing story.
The unsettling lovechild of The Matrix and Donnie Darko (yet predecessor of both), Lain is an existential ride that is hauntingly more relevant today than when it aired 22 years ago.
A great wrap-up for the series ... satisfyingly rooted in a sense of reality and introspection the way a good spiritual supernatural story should be.
