- 02/18/15--03:34: FUNimation Announces DEATH PARADE Dub Cast
From what was once an underground appreciation in the west, anime can now pull in crowds of more than 500,000 at conventions and even receives overnight translations for simulcasts of series. Anime has come a long way in the last 30 years, particularly fervent in the last decade, and continues to gain momentum in mainstream consciousness. Even […]
When it comes to anime and their impending English dubs, people usually would have to wait a year or more to listen to them in English. We have to depend if it’ll air on TV, finding a legal stream or buying the DVD and Blu-ray. However, U.S. anime distributors have developed a strategy of having the newest anime being dubbed […]
Held in Lansing, Michigan, ShutoCon isn’t exactly the largest of conventions, but it makes up for its attendance and size with interesting, varied panels and a few big-name guests. The big get this year? Nearly 5 years after it was first announced, the entire main cast of Funimation‘s dub for the famed historical anime Black […]
Although a huge majority of anime is streamed to English-speaking audiences now–with websites like Crunchyroll simulcasting some shows subtitled mere hours after their broadcast in Japan–there’s still a huge market of fans who want to see anime dubbed into English. Licensers like Funimation, Sentai Filmworks and Viz Media have whole teams of writers and actors […]
Despite its lack of any obviously exciting qualities, Barakamon is a somewhat unnoticed beauty from the summer 2014 season. Barakamon is happy to tell a tale of daily, sometimes uneventful life on Gotou Island. As is usual for a slice-of-life, little truly changes about the story’s setup even after the run of the entire show […]

Premiering Summer 2013 and localized by Viz Media soon after, Blood Lad satisfyingly blends action, dark humor, and vampires in a brilliant adaptation to Yuuki Kodama’s manga series. Although vampire media has grown exponentially in recent years, its over-saturation has caused a stagnancy of the topic. However, with Blood Lad‘s well-balanced approach, vampires just might be cool […]
The sleeper hit of the Fall 2014 season, the two cour, or two season, original anime Shirobako is a truly excellent anime that has certainly reversed P.A Works’ recent fortune in sales for Glasslip and Nagi no Asukara. While in some ways a combination of the comedy, drama, and slice-of-life genres, Shirobako stands apart in […]

One of the most curious things that’s arrived in the anime community with the rise of YouTube are abridgers who take an anime, shorten each episode, rewrite and redub all the footage in order to make it as funny as possible. The granddaddy of them all is LittleKuriboh’s Yu-Gi-Oh! Abridged with Team FourStar’s Dragon Ball […]
Girls und Panzer takes the often poorly executed idea of ‘cute girls doing cute things’ and crafts a wonderful experience from it. The aforementioned premise is the sum of many shows throughout the last several anime seasons, although many of these seem to just fall flat. In fact, Girls und Panzer is able to deliver […]

Yona of the Dawn successfully tackles a relatively rare genre for anime and manga of recent years. That is, Yona of the Dawn is a fantasy-adventure narrative which perhaps finds it closest comparison in the classic The Twelve Kingdoms. While these two works are certainly not alone in this genre, they both stand apart from […]

It’s hard to describe the emptiness felt from losing someone you never knew. Robin William’s death in 2014 left an outpouring of support and tributes across the globe from fans of the comedian and actor’s career. In 2015, the passing of Nintendo’s CEO Satoru Iwata saw fans memorializing him in much the same way. Both were widely […]

The summer anime season has started and that means a plethora of new titles awaits many people to check out to determine if they are worth a watch for the rest of their run. Here on Another Castle, we’ve decided that not only one title is worth talking about here today, but three new anime are […]
Yu-Gi-Oh! was very much a cultural zeitgeist, with kids begging for fresh cards every time they happened to pass a display. It’s hard to believe that at a time, this card game was advertised on national TV. Make no mistake, Yu-Gi-Oh! was huge. The keyword being was. While many of its core fans having moved on, their […]

The anime industry is no stranger to music anime. Shows like Beck, Nana, and K-on! delved into the idea of rock bands. Still, other shows such as Your Lie in April and Nodame Cantabile explored classical music, duets in particular. Sound! Euphonium delivers an experience in the music genre that is unique in its focus […]

In modern-day Tokyo, society lives in fear of Ghouls: mysterious creatures who look exactly like humans, yet hunger insatiably for their flesh. None of this matters to Ken Kaneki, a bookish and ordinary young man, until a dark and violent encounter turns him into the first ever Ghoul-human half-breed. Trapped between two worlds, Ken must survive […]
2015 is about to come to a close and it’s time to reminisce about the highlights of 2015. It has been an especially excellent year for anime, from the surprising announcements (Hunter X Hunter  being licensed by Viz Media, FUNimation Broadcast dub program expansion, Higurashi & Legend of the Galactic Heroes being rescued by Sentai Filmworks, etc.) to the great shows that came […]
A plethora of new anime titles have debuted and, like every season, there’s bound to be some gems and some stinkers right out the first gate. With that said, this is going to be a bit different than the last time, as this is focused on shows they aren’t continuations or sequels; meaning second seasons of Assassination Classroom, […]
Anime based on card games don’t have the best of reputations, much of it warranted. Fortunately, Rage of Bahamut: Genesis bucks the odds, giving anime fans a thrilling, 12-episode-fantasy ride. Story The story opens with bounty hunter Favaro, a rough-ish anti-hero, coming across the beautiful and mysterious Amira. Amira is searching the lands for her mother and pleads with Favaro to take her to Helheim, the place where her mother remains imprisoned. Favaro neither agrees nor disagrees; the two more or less fall in together, especially when Favaro’s childhood friend, Kaiser Lidfort appears, determined to kill Favaro for his part in a
