All the Anime I Watched in 2016

By Mikey Dunn

Let’s face it, 2016 was a bad year in general. But one good thing that came out of the year was the great anime I watched. Definitely a record year (for me at least) in terms of the number of shows I saw in one year.

So now in the order of when I started them, here are all of the anime I watched in 2016 and my thoughts on them.

Mystic Messenger Characters

Initial Thoughts on Mystic Messenger

By Mikey Dunn

I don’t really play video games much on my phone, so whenever a new mobile gaming craze comes along I usually pass on it. Sometimes a game will successfully get my attention—like Neko Atsume, Miitomo, and Pokémon Go did—but I usually drop it after a few weeks.

But I am an anime nerd, so non-anime things that usually appeal to otaku fanbase—like Vocaloid—will probably appeal to me too. And that’s why I didn’t drop Mystic Messenger and continued playing with continued interest. And I was curious about the Korean otome hit of the year.

After playing through Zen’s route, here are my initial thoughts… (contains spoilers).

Initial Thoughts: Prince of Stride: Alternative

By Mikey Dunn

New year, new sports anime.

But Prince of Stride: Alternative is different than most sports anime because its sport — called “stride” — is entirely fictional. It’s like high-tech parkour, which is why this new show is unofficially known as the “running anime.”

I’m now three episodes in, and I’m already thinking that could possibly be the next Free!, Haikyuu!!, or Kuroko no Basuke.

Here are my initial thoughts, and why I’m hooked. (spoiler free)

Why You Should Watch Food Wars

By Mikey Dunn

I was in the manga section in the back corner of my mall’s bookstore, sifting through what they had, and one manga that caught my eye was Food Wars! (Shokugeki no Soma). I later found out the ongoing manga was insanely popular in Japan, and that an anime adaption was in the works. I added it to MyAnimeList.

The first season just ended this Friday, and it is one of the funniest, strangest, yet most entertaining shows I have recently watched.

Here’s why I think you should watch it! (Spoiler free)
