Here’s your final not-so-Rapid Rundown of 2021, giving you one final glance of the year that was 2021!!!Read now
The dichotomy of good and evil is one as old as time itself and ubiquitous in all forms of art; the portrayal of this conflict is, in essence, what determines the quality of any story. Anime as an artform is known for its over-the-top and blatantly extravagant means of telling its story, with characters often having disproportionately exaggerated facial expressions and body parts to suit their overall personas. Sometimes, these aggrandized traits can present themselves in more ways than just through appearance: some villains (and even heroes) become infamous through their superfluous mannerisms and downright shocking deeds. These characters hover on the edge of insanity and make the infliction grief and suffering the trait of paramount importance in their personas. Today, Adilsons looks at the Top 5 Edgiest Anime Characters ever! Beware, heavy spoilers will follow so you are advised to stop reading if you see the name of a show that’s still on your watchlist!Read now

2. Attack on Titan: Main Trailer Out!
3. This Week in Japan: Author Arrested over CP?!
Ohayou gozaimas, minna! This week's news review is steaming hot fresh off the platter, because all our headlines for today's edition were taken from just the last 3 days! November's second week can only be defined as a crescendo of developments, culminating in the release of three monumental productions: a live action series, an anime & a movie! With all three modalities of big screen entertainment finding their way into the headlines, we're particularly eager to reveal this week's Rapid Rundown:
1. One Piece now as Live Action?!
2. New Anime: Vampire in the Garden!!
3. Seven Deadly Sins: Grudge of Edinburgh!
4. This Week in Japan!
Tuesday the 2nd of November marked the most monumental day in the course of the YuGiOh TCG this year: the Konami-sponsored early sneak opening event for Maximum Gold: El Dorado! The month of October was bloated with the back-to-back release of several highly anticipated products, namely the Structure Deck Cyber Strike, Legendary Duelists Synchro Storm and the 2021 Mega Tins! With the competitive flop of Crossout Designator and the lack of reprints for cards such as Forbidden Droplet & Accesscode Talker, the mediocre performance exhibited by the Mega Tins quickly took the backseat once the set list for El Dorado became public knowledge!Read now
We hope you didn't put all your eggs in one basket for 2021 because you're about to rack up some major duelist debt once you see the treasures sealed within El Dorado!!
We've entered the month of November, but the aftermath of October continues to shape our headlines. As fans of Jujitsu Kaisen reach day 50 in their countdown for the highly anticipated movie, events which were set into motion weeks ago still exert their influence in the animeverse today. Ranking of Kings has managed to climb its way into the top cut of popularity polls and World's Finest Assassin is also garnering itself a notable fanbase. It is against this setting that budding new anime have to compete for a slot in the headlines, bringing us straight to November's first Rapid Rundown:Read now
1. Spy X Family Making Waves!
2. Tomodachi Game Gets TV Anime!
3. World Heroes' Mission Shakes the World!
Halloween was the talk of the week and the days leading up to it were full of spooky surprises and grim grins as the fright hype made its way around the neighborhoods. Too old to trick and treat and too far from the city to spend the night with friends, my agenda for Halloween night was to sit in bed with a coffee, my house locked up tight and the lights all turned off. Impromptu as it may seem, I'm not the slightest bit ashamed to divulge the details of how I spent Halloween 2021.Read now
