Terror in ResonanceTerror in Resonance
残響のテロル

Anime Review by Ben Huber

A lot of anime fans have been happy about Shinichiro Watanabe's return to the anime world. After several years of silence, he's returned with excellent shows like Space Dandy and Kids on the Slope. Terror in Resonance is his latest creation, airing on the Noitamina block in Japan, and showcasing a darker story than his other works. It sounds like a great recipe! Plus, with composer Yoko Kanno on board, who could resist this tempting cocktail?

Told in the same style as many western crime dramas (Watanabe says he was inspired by Sherlock and 24), Terror in Resonance tails two teenagers who are behind a terrorist attack in Japan. Their methods are clear, their goals anything but. Nine and Twelve (as they refer to themselves) are exceedingly intelligent young men who enjoy toying with the Japanese police throughout their campaign. Read More...

Knights of SidoniaKnights of Sidonia
シドニアの騎士

Anime Review by Brian Cirulnick
 
Netflix has been very careful of their "original" series, producing very high quality TV series such as House of Cards and Orange is the New Black, all of which have been hailed as groundbreaking, 'must-see' TV.  So it should come as no surprise that their first foray into anime is equally visionary.
 
While Knights of Sidonia was not directly produced by Netflix, it was selected for "exclusive streaming" by Netflix's content (i.e, intellectual property) staff. And in short, it's a winner. It hits all the right buttons, combining the giant-robot genre with the old "lost-in-space/earth-destroyed/we're-living-in-a-giant-spaceship" that made the classic Megazone 23 a big hit in the 1980's, as well as being totally survival-driven, as everyone's aware that even the slightest mistake can mean the end of humanity.

Sailor Moon:
My Gateway Drug to Anime

美少女戦士セーラームーン

Anime Article by L.B. Bryant

Sailor Moon means to me... in short, it means a lot. When I was in high school, anime was still a largely foreign concept to me. I had seen some movies and series but for the most part the world was still very foreign to me. I had friends who were into it but none of them really took the time to try and introduce me to it for whatever reason -- except for one friend named Taylor.

As her and I grew closer, she introduced me to her favorite series, Sailor Moon, which I had only heard about in passing at the time. Soon though she was introducing me to the entire world of the series including the characters, the stories, the lessons that it taught -- everything. And I was in love. Not with her mind you. With the series.
