The vampire child Shinobu was once known by the delightfully decadent name Kiss-shot Acerola-orion Heart-under-blade and audiences were finally able to see her in action this year in the latter two films of the three part Kizumonogatari (傷物語). Each film is just over an hour long, released separately in theatres in…
It was obvious that an anime reimagining of Blade Runner by the director of Cowboy Bebop would be killer, but it surpassed my high expectations. The recent anime short Blade Runner Blackout 2022 is 15 beating kick drum minutes of stoical one-liners, waltzing fight scenes and, because it’s still Blade Runner,…
Why do so many superhero movies have the same origin story? It all comes down to the use – and misuse – of the monomyth. Here’s what the hero’s journey is and why it shouldn’t be used to make movies (even if great movies feature it).
If there’s one series that would really benefit from a remake it’s The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. There’s so much I admire about the original anime series, which I just finished rewatching, though. It’s really only one or two things that bug me about it.
Anime, you’ve changed! To be honest, the look of it is always changing. Styles and fads suit each age, so let’s see how anime has evolved over the past few decades.
It’s been some time since we had a Madness Bracket, so I thought we could change that up with a bracket to decide which anime opening is the best of them all. We’ve got contenders from the early days of anime to shows currently airing today. Which one will come out on top? Only one way to decide.

I finished watching the first season of Hibike! Euphonium (響け! ユーフォニアム) yesterday and I’m pleased to say I enjoyed the second half of the season as much as the first. The show has some of the pleasure found in the first half of The Red Shoes, watching this group of characters working hard for their art. Although there…
We all know by now vampires are our friends, right? Well, it used to be a new idea and one of my favourite examples of vampire hero fiction is the four episode, 1988 OVA series Vampire Princess Miyu about a little vampire girl and her companion, Larva, a big voiceless man in a mask and black robe. The understated S&M…
Re: Zero: Starting Life in Another World is like a long dream someone would have after staying up and playing Final Fantasy XIV and watching Neon Genesis Evangelion. Its plot is extraordinarily scattered and disconnected, filled with false starts, plot holes, and bizarrely extreme shifts in character. It lacks…
Pika. Pika, Pika. While Pikachu’s vocabulary might seem limited, its impersonations aren’t.
North America’s second largest anime convention, Anime North, was last weekend and over 30000 anime fans joined the fun. Among them were endless hordes of cosplayers showing off their efforts. Though it was impossible to capture them all, AniTAY has collected an assortment of those that caught our eyes. Enjoy.

Anime can be confusing to those who haven’t experienced much of it, with its tropes and terminology. If you’re interested in anime but, don’t know where to start, we at AniTAY have made this Beginner’s Guide to Anime, trying to provide a one-stop shop to familiarize yourself with the ins and outs, vocabulary, and…
The Fall 2015 anime season is just around the corner. You probably have a few shows that you plan to watch, but a sequel or two may have also caught your eyes. Unfortunately you’re not sure what you need to watch in order to catch up on those shows getting a sequel. No worries, I’ve got your back.
This is probably how Springfield will look like in a few decades. Until then here’s an impressive remake of Akira’s classic trailer, made by the folks over at the Bartkira project, turning everything Akira into everything Simpsons.
If you said “There would be more explosions,” you’d be wrong. If you picked “Shinji would get a lot more tail,” you’d be right on the money
