Manorexic’s Anime Sampler – Another

Manorexic’s Anime Sampler – Another
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!

Manorexic’s Anime Sampler – Aim for the Top! Gunbuster
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.

Manorexic’s Anime Sampler – Itsudatte My Santa!
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.

Manorexic’s Anime Sampler – Hunter x Hunter
You gotta love when they take an old anime and revamp it to make it cleaner and more canon. I know I do. My favorite example of this has to be Hellsing Ultimate, even if it takes a year to make a single OVA. But this article isn't about that, it's about another ongoing revamp: Hunter x Hunter.

Manorexic’s Anime Sampler – Blue Exorcist
Halloween, the time of year where everyone gets to dress up and go around asking for candy while completely oblivious to the Coal Tar surrounding them. Now I'm not a demon myself, but I have a feeling that October 31 is one of their favorite days of the year. So in order to get in the Halloween spirit, today we'll take a look at Blue Exorcist, the story of the son of none other than the Demon King himself.
