This has been a month to test our patience and our sanity.  
Because This Anime is taking a look at two awful shows. The first is the death game cell phone novel adaption, Kings Game, and paired it with the female wrestling extravaganza, Wanna Be the Strongest in the World. We talk about bad animation, boring character drama, and things that make us exclaim This Anime! in all the wrong ways.
Kings Game is currently available to strea...

We have officially come full circle on a show that has tried our patience and our sanity as we do puzzles against dogs and crazy psychopaths. But did we also me...

It's time to put on some Celtic music and move to the highlands.  
This Anime is taking a look at two Celtic/European inspired pieces of anime goodness. The first is the fantasy tale in the country, The Ancient Magus Bride, and paired it with our first Hayao Miyazaki film for the podcast, Howl's Moving Castle. We talk about love, we talk about finding the family who we choose to make, and we talk about the parts of these sto...

It's the month of love and...stark reality?
That's right This Anime is taking a look at the adult rom com series, Recovery of an MMO Junkie, and paired it with the underlooked at but somehow thematically similar feature, Aura: Koga Maryuin's Last War. We talk about fantasy, we talk about the harsh reality, but most importantly we talk about the parts of these that make us exclaim This Anime!
Recovery of an MMO Junkie is c...

New year, same old This Anime.
Happy new year everyone! The last 4 months of 2020 put us through the ringer but This Anime is back with more of the same talk you would come to expect. This month we're talking the latest film in the filmography of Makoto Shinkai, Weathering with You. But we decided to pair such a beautiful feature film with the ongoing love/hate saga that is Phi-Brain: Puzzle of the Gods. This time covering the f...

Hey guys This Anime is back from another unexpected hiatus (again again) to bring you more content in 2021.

This short address is meant to give you guys and idea on what 2020 did for us here at This Anime and where we're going in 2021 as always we will continue talking anime from...

This Anime is shouting out our souls.
This month This Anime is talking one of the most criminally underrated and under watched shows of the last few years, Re: Creators, and we paired it with Momoru Hosoda's coming of age tale, The Boy and the Beast. And considering we're covering a series that we would mostly gush on we employed once again a fresh look from This Week in Geek Producer and Marathon Man himself, Alex.
