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.

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 the Sushi Burrito Meets the Hype

 

New York City can be known for its trendy food crazes. Macarons and cronuts—in my opinion—are way over-hyped. Now a new contender has entered the New York foodscape: the Sushi Burrito, a creation by Uma Temakeria.

However, there are a handful of iOS apps that I use everyday. Here are five of them (all free to download):

Review: The Starbucks Flat White

Fun fact: I’m actually writing this at my local Starbucks while sipping on a Flat White.

Ew, I need to clean my keyboard. And yeah, I already started sipping it.

If you’ve been on Starbucks’ website, received any email from them, or just went into one of their locations, you’ve probably noticed their latest thing: The Flat White. Being a Starbucks addict, I had to try it at least once. Especially since my dad already had tried it and actually recommended it.

So here I am, sitting the corner of the Starbucks’ bar alone with my MacBook, iPhone, and sipping this mystical beverage. Am I a hipster yet?
