My favorite action anime this year is a new series called Attack on Titan. Based on the manga series Shingeki no Kyojin, it’s inspiring visuals and deep compelling story makes for an addictive series that’s gained a large following in a short time.
Over the years, there have been some impressive animated superhero movies and some less than so. It’s not easy to turn a comic book into a great cartoon but sometimes, somehow, it gets done right.
Sword Art Online took us into a virtual world and captivated our imaginations from the get go. Very rarely does an anime build up such a huge crowd this quickly, but SAO is no ordinary anime. Based on a manga series from the creator of the popular Accel Word series, SAO is the lovechild of games and manga, that’s done just right!
