Golden Time Complete Collection

Banri Tada has seen his share of trouble, but now he’s leaving that behind him and entering law school. Or that was the plan, but on the first day of class, he finds himself lost and wandering. Fortunately, while trying to resolve his predicament, he meets Mitsuo, a fellow law student, and together they head to class.

He may have new friends, but if Banri thought his problems were over, he’ll have to cross-examine his conclusion.

by Justin Sevakis, Oct 4th 2017


This helps shed some light on this situation and it does make sense. You just to put up with the sometimes severely late episode releases though.

Is there anything more alluring or adorable than furry anime characters? Nekomimi (cat ears) and other animal ears are a staple in many fantasy and supernatural anime, but are they a staple in your anime preference library?
Anime Cat Girls… and More Furry Anime Characters!

Kuon (Utawarerumono: The False Faces)


In a world where everyone has animal ears and a tail, Kuon has a special place in our hearts. She’s both a healer and badass fighter. She takes in the main character, Haku, and makes sure that he knows that you should “Never grab a girl’s tail without her permission!” (We also love that she swings her tail when she’s happy. So cute!)

Kuromitsu (RIN-NE 3)


Kuromistu is a contract black cat in the world of RIN-NE. She works for Rinne’s ex-classmate/current admirer, Matsugo. She’s a sweet soul who’s more than happy to support her master as he tries his best to win Rinne’s heart. Also, we love her Chinese dress.

Mercenary (Grimoire of Zero)


He certainly is… furry. He may not have a name for the duration of the series, but he’s impossible to forget. Mercenary looks like a massive tiger-man, but he’s actually a Beastfallen, a human cursed at birth with the appearance of an animal. Discrimination and violence follow Mercenary wherever he goes, but maybe he’s found a refuge with that cute witch he’s protecting these days?

Black Rabbit (Problem Children are Coming From Another World, Aren’t They?)


Don’t let this anime bunny girl’s bubbly appearance fool you. When she’s ready to rumble, her long blue hair turns bright pink. She does her best to support her struggling community, going so far as to summon some (almost ungrateful) new fighters to Little Garden.

Bete Loga (Sword Oratoria: Is it Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? On the Side)


This silver-haired wolf is an elite member of the powerful Loki Familia. He’s one of their strongest hand-to-hand combat fighters, and although he tends not to play well with his fellow teammates, he recognizes strength for what it is. He’s also a fairly adorable angry tsundere.

More Nekomimi Please

Amagami SS / Amagami SS Plus Complete Collection

It’s rare to get a second chance at love, but Junichi Tachibana is about to get a half dozen of them! Junichi gave up hope of finding his special someone when a date stood him up on Christmas Eve, but fate is about to give him the romantic equivalent of a multiple choice quiz!

Persona 4: The Animation Complete Collection

When Yu Narukami moves to the country town of Inaba to stay with his uncle and cousin, he’s expecting a lot more peace and quiet than he’s been used to in the big city. What he isn’t expecting is for his uncle’s job as a police detective to spill over into his own life. Or for the murders that are occurring across town to be somehow linked to Yu’s own strange experiences: odd local weather patterns, and a mysterious TV show world that seems to be attempting to get Yu to enter it! Now, together with a new group of friends, Yu must plunge into a bizarre alternate reality where he gains unique abilities that will either help him solve the riddle of the mystery killer, or lead him to his doom. Journey into the Velvet Room and beyond as the hit PlayStation 2® game becomes a spectacular anime in PERSONA 4: The Complete Collection!



Love, Chunibyo and Other Delusions!: Rikka Version

It’s just so not fair! Sure, Rikka may be a “chunibyo” afflicted with a state where she’s convinced that she has hidden powers. Maybe she DOES think she has an evil eye that always has to be covered with a patch. But that doesn’t mean that what she believes isn’t real to her, and Rikka knows in her twisted little heart that Yuta Togashi is much more than just another boy. So why is he always pulling away? At long last, here’s the chance to see the world through Rikka’s eyes (or eye, technically, since the evil one is usually covered). Armed with your trusted parasol, you’ll deal with evil high priestess sisters, enchanted animals, and the scariest thing of all, going literally boy crazy in LOVE, CHUNIBYO AND OTHER DELUSIONS!: RIKKA VERSION!

There’s something about Monday that just puts you to sleep. All we want to do in life is watch anime, and, you know, the essential living stuff. What can we say? Sometimes, life is better in 2-D than the actual 3-D realities. Don’t despair: at least we have memes to save the day!

Flying Witch Complete Collection DVD/BD/PBS

Traditionally, when a witch turns 15, she’s supposed to go out into the world alone to study magic. Makoto’s parents, however, believe that their directionally-challenged daughter should get a high school degree. Instead of being sent out on her own, Makoto and her cat Chito find themselves traveling from the bustling city of Yokohama to Aomori Prefecture, where they’ll stay with relatives until Makoto finishes school. It’s going to be a big adjustment, and it only gets more complicated since “normal” people aren’t supposed to know that witches exist… something that she tends to forget. In the meantime, Makoto, her cousins, and her new friends will have to work a just little harder to adapt to a whole new way of life when the new girl in town is a FLYING WITCH!

Now, eight-year ET veteran Shiroe, his friend Naotsugu, the beautiful assassin Akatsuki, and 30,000 other players are faced with the daunting task of learning how to deal with an entirely new reality, one where the Non-Player Characters are actually alive, and the tips and tricks learned while playing with a keyboard no longer apply. Flesh and blood replace avatars and stat lists, and an entire world stands on the brink of Apocalypse in the ultimate LOG HORIZON SEASON 1 & SEASON 2 complete collection!

One day, Nonoko discovers an unconscious soldier between her dragon’s teeth instead of a cavity, and she finds herself caught up in a series of events that have been foretold to bring disaster to her people! Get ready for an incredible brush with destiny that leads two young people through the mouth of hell and towards certain doom as the creators of the new EVANGELION feature films unleash an epic unlike anything you’ve seen before in THE DRAGON DENTIST!

You go to a Halloween party with a pervy tentacle.



I’ll play a “Trick” gone horribly wrong on a harem MC.

Guess that means either gender change kun or warp warp kun is going to malfunction while I’m using it with Rito…
