The thing about a lot of anime franchises, particularly shonen ones, is that they lend themselves well to video game adaptations. When a guy in a suit wants to milk more money from a show about spiky-haired people shooting lasers from their swords while kicking each other into mountains, the first thing he thinks of is video games (or poetry, if it’s the guy that will be fired within minutes of ...

Top 5 Best Anime Weapons

There are a lot of powerful weapons in anime, but choosing the best anime weapons based on pure destructive ability can be next to impossible due to the fact that it scales differently between franchises (and sometimes even within the same series.)

Bleach Chapter 563 Recap: Super Star Never Die

Chapter 563 of Bleach picks up where the last one left off, with Mask de Masculine bisected by Renji. However, we get the sudden yet unsurprising swerve that Mask isn’t dead yet. It turns out his “fan,” James isn’t as well. The little fan, who was cut up into pieces last chapter, has its pieces all transforming into smaller versions of James.
