All the pieces are moving and it is only a matter of time before someone gets checkmate. Judging by the way this episode ends, this game of chess may have ...

Noragami Episode 6 Impressions

Noragami Episode 6 – Scary Person The tides are turning in Noragami, but are they for the better? This week Noragami takes on the ideas they have been building since episode 1 head on. The idea that Yato may actually be a dangerous merciless god is put on the forefront here and the bond between him and Yukine is so badly damaged that it is hard to imagine how it could be repaired at this poi...

Noragami Episode 5 Impressions

Noragami Episode 5 – Borderlines It ain’t easy being a regalia, always on the borderline between life and death. Such is the case for Yukine, who has become somewhat of an audience surrogate in recent weeks for Noragami.

Noragami Episode 4 Impressions

Noragami Episode 4 – Where Happiness Lies Could Noragami be heading towards the god-tier of anime? Pardon the pun, but Noragami is just so damn good that its hard not to ponder how this series can get any better. Every single week, Noragami tops the last.

Noragami Episode 3 Impressions

Noragami Episode 3 – Bidden Calamity Consistently great, consistently engaging, consistently Noragami. There is no other anime this season that has been top to bottom great week in week out.

Noragami Episode 2 Impressions

Noragami Episode 2 – Snow-like If Yu Yu Hakusho and Soul Eater had a baby, Noragami would definitely be it. It borrows from other series of the same genre of anime certainly, but what makes Noragami so damn good is its execution, that is where the brilliance lies. If episode 1 was all about introducing us to the premise, episode 2 is a masterwork of world-building. In this one episode, Norag...

Noragami Episode 1 Impressions

Noragami Episode 1 – A Housecat, a Stray God, and a Tail Wham, bam, thank you ma’am! Now that is what I’m talking about. Noragami bursts out of the gate with one hell of a series opener. Half-way between Yu Yu Hakusho and Soul Eater, Noragami tackles the afterlife with bombast and flair. While it borrows elements of past supernatural action series, it manages to find its own uniq...

James’ Winter 2014 Anime Picks

Winter is upon us, and as the snow begins to settle here in the UK, I am warmed by the fact that this season the anime gods have smiled upon me. Why venture into the great white beyond, when I can stay inside, basking in the warm glow of my monitor and the welcoming embrace of characters I have come to love and those who I have yet to meet. Step in from the cold (or the scorching heat if you’...
