Some of My Favorites: Top Ten Male Anime Protagonists

A great male main character is one that is hard to find.

They’re not the manliest of men, but neither are they complete pushovers either.  These characters are the ones that have drive, that have charisma, the ones that are interesting, engaging, and push the story forward.  It is through them, that we experience the anime we love, and are a major reason as to why anime tend to go down in history as some of the best.

And these, are my personal favorites among the bunch.

Some of My Favorites: Five of the Best Endings in Anime

The ending of an anime is what separates “great” from “legendary.”

An ending is the last hurrah, the thematic synopsis, the final moments in which an anime can distinguish itself from the rest.

These are some of my personal favorites, not the greatest literary, thematically satisfying, most powerful of all time.  So, other endings that would probably be considered the “top” might not be here!  Also, obviously, be prepared for spoilers!

Some of my Favorites: Five Nostalgic Anime

Nostalgia is…kind of a beautiful thing.

Defined as a sentimental longing or wistful attraction for the past, nostalgia takes us back to innocent days.  Rushing to the TV Saturday morning for that latest episode of that one new show you’re following, and growing up following the adventures of your favorite characters, watching any series now just…doesn’t quite compare.  You guys HAVE to know what I mean.

Reading Between Reviews: Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion

Holy sh!t.   There’s gonna be a third season. WHAT.

Okay, but for real.  Code Geass was an anime that many, many people enjoyed.  Released a full decade ago, it blended the giant mech action of Gundam, with a touch of magic, and absurd amounts of theatic flair, to create a rollercoaster of an anime that had critics and audiences alike enthralled.  It has quite a reputation, and has been deemed the favorite anime of many, or just an overrated fluke by some.  I would like to weigh in my own personal opinion, and give my own take on this rather unique anime.

As with my other reviews, there will  be very minimal spoilers, and anything you see here, you’d probably get from the first episode or so.  Alright, let’s get into it!
