The Wandering Witch Watches an Eastern Western — Garo: Vanishing Line
Welcome, all, again, and a blessed Yule season! As we close both the year and viewing season, I'd like to look at what I interpret to be a Japanese attempt to make a western that consequently results in probably one of the most original shows currently offered, Garo: Vanishing Line.

The Wandering Witch Explores Anime — Gataris

The Wandering Witch Explores Anime — Gataris
Welcome, all, again. I hope you enjoyed Halloween (Samhain, for me) as much as I did! Meanwhile, our subject of discussion today, Anime-Gataris, has already proven a great joy to anime enthusiasts and other otaku by allowing us to view ourselves through rather rose-colored glasses, however pitted. And I can't argue. After all, we've been subconsciously awaiting this series--this premise--since Shirobako knocked us onto our collective can back in 2014. Shirobako, while fictional, was nonetheless ...

The Wandering Witch Faces Knight’s & Magic

The Wandering Witch Faces Knight’s & Magic
Welcome, all, again. This month's subject anime is Knight's [sic] & Magic, a fast-and-loose genre-hopping fantasy that pits a young prodigy against his world. Because Ernesti "Ernie" Echevalier is not only a prodigy, but also the reincarnated soul of Tsubasa Kurata, a Japanese computer programmer and otaku who at least partially remembers his former life. Wait, you say, this all sounds so familiar!

The Wandering Witch – Revisiting the Fairy Musketeers!

The Wandering Witch – Revisiting the Fairy Musketeers!
Welcome, all, again. Facing a somewhat slow viewing season, I'd like revisit a past favorite of mine that I've always felt was underappreciated: Fairy Musketeers. This 39-episode series ran from 2006-7 and was preceded in 2005 by a 3-episode OVA, both by studio Madhouse. The story is populated by characters from Western fairytales, both as heroes and (newly minted) villains, and it becomes fascinating to watch their interactions when placed together.

Siege Spots – Valkyria Revolution

Siege Spots – Valkyria Revolution
Valkyria Revolution, with its new action-based battle system, is definitely a bold new direction for the Valkyria series. But does this new battle system work in this spin-off's favor, or does this revolution fall flat?
