Episode 13: Linebarrels of Iron

11/12/2018
More
Apparently if a giant robot lands on you and kills you, it's entirely possible that you'll wake up as an immortal, nanobot–infused, murderous jerk with superhuman abilities. Also there's a naked girl with amnesia. Linebarrels of Iron is about just such a scenario, and you too can be a chosen pilot for these big big robots—all you have to do first is die a horrible death! Thanks to Sithu Aye for letting us use his music for the intro/outro of our show! You can find Senpai EP and Senpai EP II:...

Episode 12: Persona 4 — The Golden Animation

11/5/2018
More
Based on the popular JRPG video game series, Persona 4: The Golden Animation focuses almost entirely on the relationship between Marie, a girl who mysteriously becomes part of The Velvet Room, and Yu, the protagonist of the game. These episodes offer fresh content to supplement the original Persona 4 story and characters, which makes it wildly unapproachable to those unfamiliar with the series. Will this impedance be too much for the AniMonday cast to recommend the series? Find out on this...

10/1/2018
More
A popular boy who aspires to become a filmmaker and an average girl who loves to paint most definitely have feelings for each other, but they would each rather distance themselves than express those feelings. When all they want to do is touch hands, this hesitation instead leaves them 10 centimeters apart (on average). This short anime series is part of a series of media based on music by HoneyWorks, a band who primarily composes music with vocaloids. Thanks to Sithu Aye for letting us use...

Episode 6: Bakemonogatari

9/17/2018
More
The Monogatari series features a high school student named Araragi, whose former life as a vampire allows him to help others navigate their encounters with the paranormal and the divine. Its heavy reliance on wordplay and understanding of Japanese, coupled with a dense overload of onscreen text and dialog, can make it a difficult show to invest in. Can its striking animation and fascinating storytelling through clever character development make up for the hurdle that it requires western...

Episode 5: Love Tyrant

9/10/2018
More
The Kiss Note is kind of like the Death Note, with more kissing but almost as much death. Love Tyrant is a 2017 anime series about Guri — a cupid who is the owner of a powerful notebook that allows her to make people fall in love with a kiss. Does this Death Note parody fall down dead, or does it do something interesting to expand on the ideas in a comedic way?
