This has been a month to test our patience and our sanity.  

Because This Anime is taking a look at two awful shows. The first is the death game cell phone novel adaption, Kings Game, and paired it with the female wrestling extravaganza, Wanna Be the Strongest in the World. We talk about bad animation, boring character drama, and things that make us exclaim This Anime! in all the wrong ways.

Kings Game is currently available to stream dubbed on Funimation and subbed on Crunchyroll.

Wanna Be the Strongest in the World is available to stream both subbed and dubbed over on Funimation.

Also our musical interlude was curtesy of Tanuki Suit and their track, Berserk, which can be found to purchase on their bandcamp here.

It's the end of another Anime season and its time to do our first This Anime Anime Book Club for the Winter 2021 Season.

This time we concluded our discussion that began in January's main show and talked about the second half of Phi Brain Puzzle of the Gods Season 2. We have officially come full circle on a show that has tried our patience and our sanity as we do puzzles against dogs and crazy psychopaths. But did we also mention the dog? It's a wacky world this show lives in but we're seeing it to its end...for now.

Phi Brain Puzzle of the Gods Season 2 is currently not available legally through streaming and is currently as of this episode slowly going out of print from Sentai Filmworks on both DVD and Bluray.

It's time to put on some Celtic music and move to the highlands.  

This Anime is taking a look at two Celtic/European inspired pieces of anime goodness. The first is the fantasy tale in the country, The Ancient Magus Bride, and paired it with our first Hayao Miyazaki film for the podcast, Howl's Moving Castle. We talk about love, we talk about finding the family who we choose to make, and we talk about the parts of these stories that make us exclaim This Anime!

The Ancient Magus Bride is currently available to stream subbed and dubbed over on Crunchyroll and VRV (US Only). And is also available to purchase on Bluray via Funimation and those that carry their releases.

Howl's Moving Castle is available to stream both subbed and dubbed over on HBO Max (US Only) and Netflix (Anywhere else).

It's the month of love and...stark reality?

That's right This Anime is taking a look at the adult rom com series, Recovery of an MMO Junkie, and paired it with the underlooked at but somehow thematically similar feature, Aura: Koga Maryuin's Last War. We talk about fantasy, we talk about the harsh reality, but most importantly we talk about the parts of these that make us exclaim This Anime!

Recovery of an MMO Junkie is currently available to stream subbed and dubbed over on Crunchyroll and VRV (US Only). And is also available to purchase on Bluray via Funimation and those that carry their releases.

Aura: Koga Maryuin's Last War is available to stream both subbed and dubbed over on Hi Dive and VRV (US Only) (Subbed) (Dubbed).

New year, same old This Anime.

Happy new year everyone! The last 4 months of 2020 put us through the ringer but This Anime is back with more of the same talk you would come to expect. This month we're talking the latest film in the filmography of Makoto Shinkai, Weathering with You. But we decided to pair such a beautiful feature film with the ongoing love/hate saga that is Phi-Brain: Puzzle of the Gods. This time covering the first half of episodes in Season 2 (ep 1-13). Let's laugh, let's cry, let's continue to question villain game plans this month exclaiming This Anime!

Weathering with You can be rented/purchased on most major platforms and is also available to stream on HBO Max and purchase on Bluray/4k Collectors via the Shout Factory/Gkids joint release.

Phi-Brain Season 2...currently has been wiped from legal streaming but can still currently be purchased on Bluray through Sentai Filmworks. Be warned its slowly going out of print.

Hey guys This Anime is back from another unexpected hiatus (again again) to bring you more content in 2021.

This short address is meant to give you guys and idea on what 2020 did for us here at This Anime and where we're going in 2021 as always we will continue talking anime from the past, present, and future. All with the exclamation of THIS ANIME!

This Anime is shouting out our souls.

This month This Anime is talking one of the most criminally underrated and under watched shows of the last few years, Re: Creators, and we paired it with Momoru Hosoda's coming of age tale, The Boy and the Beast. And considering we're covering a series that we would mostly gush on we employed once again a fresh look from This Week in Geek Producer and Marathon Man himself, Alex. 

 

Re: Creators is available to stream on Amazon w/ Amazon Prime. (If you have Prime in your country then you can stream it)

The Boy and the Beast is available to rent/own on most major streaming platforms.

 

Alex can be found on twitter @DeThPhaseTWIG. And if you haven't already go support our friends at This Week in Geek.
