Crunchyroll Feature-With the Wano Arc, One Piece is Finally Nearing its Endgame

For my latest CR feature, I returned to One Piece to write about Wano's significance in the broader story. Weird as it is to imagine, One Piece might just be ending soon(ish). We've still got a ways to go, of course, but with everything going on in Wano, it's hard to deny that the story's … Continue reading Crunchyroll Feature-With the Wano Arc, One Piece is Finally Nearing its Endgame

Crunchyroll Feature-How Tower of God’s Top-Notch Atmosphere Makes the Show

For my latest Crunchyroll feature (I know this post is two weeks late, blame forgetfulness and law school) I took a look at Tower of God's use of atmosphere to hook the audience in its first episode. I was a little hesitant about the show at first, but the mood and atmosphere it set was … Continue reading Crunchyroll Feature-How Tower of God’s Top-Notch Atmosphere Makes the Show

Crunchyroll Feature-10 Bleach Fight Scenes That Make the Anime Unforgettable

It's been awhile since I last revisited Bleach, so it was fun getting to go back and count down my ten favorite fights from the series in anticipation of its upcoming announcement (whatever that might be). For all it's flaws, Bleach was one of the early shows that helped get me interested in anime in … Continue reading Crunchyroll Feature-10 Bleach Fight Scenes That Make the Anime Unforgettable

Crunchyroll Feature-From Mesopotamia to Mesoamerica: The Real History Behind Fate/Grand Order: Babylonia’s Heroic Spirits

Having trouble keeping up with all of Babylonia's Servants? I put together a guide here with some brief explanations of the history behind them and how Babylonia's portrayal stacks up to the real legend. It's surprisingly accurate most of the time (gender-bending aside), which is a nice touch in a mobile game storyline. You can … Continue reading Crunchyroll Feature-From Mesopotamia to Mesoamerica: The Real History Behind Fate/Grand Order: Babylonia’s Heroic Spirits
