Ode to Anime Studios – NAZ

To be honest, I kept putting this studio off for this post series because I don’t have much information to go off… This is one of those instances where the studio is known under several names – the company website doesn’t refer to itself as “NAZ”, but rather “Anima & Company” (even in the URL,...

Sailing the High Seas

I ended up caving for a subscription to my region's main licensing company somewhat recently, which got me thinking, what drives people to piracy in the first place? (...and no, when I say "pirates" in this post, I don't mean those pirates.) Important note: This post is not to defend piracy as a practice -... Continue Reading →

Note the... Continue Reading →

Trigger is a fairly young studio, having started in 2012 (Minto 2018), and are known for their staff, which are a pack which formed out of the vacuum left by Hideaki Anno at Gainax circa 2006 (Minto 2018).

Is Anime Childish?

Responding to Keni's post here. Keni says that anime is childish because it's escapism. That is a valid argument, but there's more to it than simply that. (He then derails the topic to discuss what anime taught him, but while the lessons anime teaches are universal and for any age group, I can't really refute... Continue Reading →
