Anime wasn’t very generous to us in 2018. There weren’t as many wholly original standouts, like in 2017, or 2016's steady flow of genre-defining pillars. Adding to that, 2018 also gave us a couple stinkers in the “thanks, I hate it” category: an anime about anthropomorphic horse girls who race each other and are idol singers; a sloppily-drawn anime called My Sister, My Writer (don’t ask) and Magic Girl Ore, an anime about a magical girl who looks like a buff man, which was just plain offensive.
For many of us, the holiday season is a time for stress and anxiety more than merriment and joy. Between the holiday parties, Secret Santas, and familial obligations...there’s just so much to take care of, not enough time to do it all, and you’re meant to skip through it all with a song in your heart and a smile on your face. Deep inside, though, what you want to do it scream.
Anime Expo is upon us, and Netflix is taking the opportunity to remind us that it has a metric buttload of anime and anime-adjacent shows on the way, with returning series such as the bloody awesome Castlevania adaptation and the extremely cathartic return of Aggretsuko. But it also has a couple more surprises on the way, too.
There comes a point in every young professional's life when they find themselves sitting in a dreary office and wondering, "What am I doing? Who am I? Is this really all there is to life?" These thoughts are typically followed by the consumption of alcohol and, in Aggretsuko's case, a side of death metal karaoke.
