The High Guardian Spice Backlash is Bullshit The High Guardian Spice Backlash is Bullshit

Stop me if you heard of this one before: a cutesy animated series is announced, people get just a look at it, and it’s declared to be a cancer that must be cancelled immediately.

Instant Classic: Megalobox's Incredible OST Instant Classic: Megalobox's Incredible OST

I’d be willing to bet just about anything that when the subject of “classic anime soundtrack” comes up, a single from Cowboy Bebop instantly comes to mind to the vast majority of anime viewers. What’d be less certain however is which track, but for good reason: Bebop’s soundtrack isn’t just a landmark for having a…

Medabots Reboot Confirmed Medabots Reboot Confirmed

In the current trend of old anime properties with a modicum of nostalgia being re-adapted into new series and movies (Pokemon Origins, Digimon Tri, Gundam the Origin), the time has come for the best ever Pokemon ripoff robot fighting series to be remade for the 2010s.

Fable 4 Confirmed, Being Developed by Playground Games Fable 4 Confirmed, Being Developed by Playground Games

In a bold move by Microsoft, a beloved series they own is actually being resurrected. In the wake of the shuttered Lionshead Stuios, Fable 4 is not only in the works, but is also being handled by the best team in the business: Playground Games. Yes, the team noted for its open world racing series, Forza Horizon, is…

TAY Theme Week: My Nintendo Switch, One Month Later

This isn’t my first Nintendo console, but so far it is getting much more use than my previous two encounters. When I got my Gamecube over a decade ago, my parents quickly forbade me from playing on it after seeing what it did to my grades (c’mon, I was a second grader back then), and my 2DS (yes, I bought a 2DS. Eat…

In This Corner of The World: One of The Best War Movies, Now on Netflix In This Corner of The World: One of The Best War Movies, Now on Netflix

When you think of a great war movie, what comes to your mind? Saving Private Ryan, probably. Maybe Dunkirk if you’re into more recent stuff. Perhaps even The Bridge on the River Kwai, if it’s a genre you’re really into. But if you’re an anime fan, there’s a very good chance Grave of the Fireflies is something you’re…

I, uh... I may have something of a problem.

TGRIP's ConTAYct Info Page (Updated)

Alright, so; I got a Switch, and I’m back on Steam. So, update time I guess, since I could really use some Nintendo friends (but where could I possibly find any of those, here, on this site of all places...?)

So, how’s everyone’s winter anime season going?

TGRIP's Top 5 Games of 2017

Sometimes making a Best of Year list is easy, but this wasn’t one of those times. Between not getting a Nintendo Switch (yet) and it being a lackluster year for Xbox, I just didn’t play that many games this year. 2017 was a great year for movies, television, and anime, an average year for pop music, and I’d personally…

TGRIP's Top 5 Anime of 2017 TGRIP's Top 5 Anime of 2017

So as I said before, 2016 was a lackluster year for anime, but 2017 on the other hand, perhaps as a cosmic reward for how terrible the year was in general, was a great year for media and entertainment in multiple mediums. A bunch of good games, tons of great movies, pop music that... okay, pop was at best average that…

And you guys thought you could procrastinate...

Hey, So, I'm in a Science Project That Requires a Survey...

It’s nothing too big, just 10 or so questions related to your personal views on global warming/climate change, and it’s nothing too personal. Link to the survey is below.

So... Does Warner Bros Owe me a Story Credit, or What? So... Does Warner Bros Owe me a Story Credit, or What?

As some (if not all) of you know, Comic Con is going on in San Diego right now (and I’ve once again forgotten that I have relatives down there, with free food and lodging... dammit...). Along with news from Marvel, the Eisner Awards, and even news about actual ongoing comic books(!), DC showed what’s on their docket…

I Hate That I Love Amazon's Anime Strike Channel I Hate That I Love Amazon's Anime Strike Channel

The past year or so has been surprisingly eventful if you’re a stateside, regular anime viewer, but not when it comes to the anime that’s being released; rather, it’s how it’s being released and distributed, that’s been making news. Thanks to Hulu dropping a vast amount of its anime library (which was partly thanks to…

The Last Night: The Prettiest Game from Microsoft's E3 Conference, and One You Should Think Very Carefully About Before Buying The Last Night: The Prettiest Game from Microsoft's E3 Conference, and One You Should Think Very Carefully About Before Buying

Okay, E3 2017... not a great year if I’m honest, but each conference so far has had stuff I’m interested in. Anthem and Battlefront 2 from EA, the Xbox One X (or Xb O X for short... wait a minute...), Forza, Crackdown, and OG Xbox backwards compatibility (which I’ll be sure to cover in a few weeks time... yay) from…

Games As Art: An Essay Games As Art: An Essay

Note: last term for a writing class of mine, I was tasked with writing a paper on whatever I wanted, in whichever style I wanted. So... I decided to write an entire, 12 page argument on whether games can art, and if so, what makes them “art?” And since I finally have time off again for the first time in months, and I…
