You know Tony Stark's floating, touch-controlled hologram screens in Iron Man? What if everyone had one of those, and only they could see their own? That's exactly what happens in this show's version of Japan, year 2046. Let's take a trip to the future this week with the futuristic fantasy, Accel World!

This weekend is a historic one: this Saturday marks the return of Toonami! You may have plans to just chill at home and watch, or be like me and have a mass viewing party. However you plan to celebrate (and watch,) let's take today to look back onto everyone's favorite Toonami classic: Dragon Ball Z.

If you have been any form of anime fan in the past fifty years, odds are you've at least heard of Lupin the Third. If you haven't, just say you have to prevent immediate execution. Starting as a manga in 1967, this series has managed to find its way into almost every medium possible. Today we look at the most recent installation, the ongoing show "The Woman Called Fujiko Mine."

The thought of a comedy anime about history seems just ridiculous; I mean, who would watch that? Yet somehow getting people to watch the show wasn't an issue at all for this convention favorite. Whether you like them or not, you'll see hoards and hoards of cosplayers from this show coating the con. So for better or for worse, today we look at Hetalia: Axis Powers

A little over a year ago a show called Cardfight!! Vanguard came out in Japan. After seeing it I thought that it would be the next big tcg craze. Shopping at the store I came across a booster pack for none other than this same show. In honor of this funny coincidence, today we take a look at Japan's newest card game NOT on a motorcycle.

Today's show is one that I, and probably many other Fans, have been looking forward to for months now. Based on the OVA based on the music video based on the Supercell song "Black Rock Shooter," today we look at the long awaited Black Rock Shooter!

Honestly speaking, I've only seen maybe four or five mech series. I'm obviously no expert (or novice for that matter) in this genre. That said, today we look at a mech series that I thought was one of the few diamonds in the rough of the off season. So let's dig into the new show, Rinne no Lagrange!

It's the beginning of a new year, which in TV Land means it's off-season! The first show to catch my eye this off-season was the mystery/horror anime based on Ayatsuji Yukito's novel. Let's dig in to the darker side of the new year with Another!

2011 is coming to a close this week, so this is the last Sampler of the year. No I'm not going to talk about a New Year's anime (and not just because I couldn't find one.) I'd like to round off the year with a show that, sadly, not too many people have heard of. This is probably my personal favorite older anime. Today we take a trip back to 1988 with Gunbuster.

It's Christmas time here at the Fan. As if you couldn't tell by all the ear-murdering Christmas music covers blasting in every single store. In light of the season, I picked an anime that when I started I could've sworn couldn't exist. That's right, an anime [loosely] about Santa.
