In case it was hard to tell, I love animation. I love all kinds of animation, from hand drawn to CGI, from claymation to pain staiking oil paintings, from classic Fleisher era to modern Disney, for kids or for adults, if you put me in front...

Taika Waititi's Akira adaptation gets a release date

We've been around this gritty, high-tech-low-life, cyberpunk block before. News trickles out about the live-action adaptation of Katsuhiro Otomo's landmark manga and 1988 animation Akira, and then things go silent, and it's back to square o...

Review: Made in Abyss: Wandering Twilight

When I covered Made in Abyss: Journey's Dawn back in March, I have to admit that I was a little bit disappointed afterwards. The movie itself is still pretty good, but I remembered the series being so much better than what Journey's Da...

Review: Made in Abyss: Journey's Dawn

I'm going to level with you all; Made in Abyss is one of my favorite anime series. After I first saw it in the summer of 2017, I knew that I was in love with it. Despite being thrown into Amazon's short-lived and poorly executed anime block...

One Punch Man returns April 9th exclusively to Hulu

With the recent surge of anime titles streaming from Japan, a lot of quality shows tend to get left by the wayside unless they're mega-popular, multi-million dollar franchises. That isn't to say that shows like My Hero Academia or Attack on...

Review: Penguin Highway

Youth being wiser than their age might be a well-worn trope of cinema, but it's effective for one simple reason: we all wish we had our current knowledge when we were young. The ability to make deductive choices, carefully weigh the outcome...

Review: Alita: Battle Angel

You wouldn't guess by looking at it, but the production behind Alita: Battle Angel is the stuff of legends. Robert Rodriguez may be in the director's chair, but this movie has been James Cameron's baby for nearly two decades. Cameron has be...

Made In Abyss: Journey's Dawn to be released March 2019

A personal vow that I made in 2019 was to not only cover more anime projects on Flixist, but just to watch more anime in general. While I wouldn't say that 2018 was a bad year for anime, it was a year where I barely saw any new shows and th...

Review: Dragon Ball Super: Broly

I don't think I'm being hyperbolic when I say that Dragon Ball Z is one of the most important anime to ever exist. For many, Dragon Ball Z was how we became diehard anime fans in the first place. I remember watching Toonami as a kid and bei...

I forgot that Alita: Battle Angel still exists
