Time keeps on slipping, slipping, slipping… Anime blog Mage In A Barrel took an in-depth look at Glasslip, a lazily-paced PA Works series that offers genuine profundity for those who seek it.

Goin’ Berserk Floating Words published a stunning deconstruction of the themes and motifs in the original Berserk anime series.

Weekly Fun Stuff!

With the big Gundam news this week, it would be careless to not pay homage to the iconic mecha series somehow. This time, we’re taking Gundam into a new, 3D world! Relive the drama, and the suspense of Operation Odessa in ways you never ever expected!
