The manga revolution may be in for a revolution as the Aniki brothers climb a deadly gauntlet with the adaptation of the Korean manwa Tower of God. Originally published on Webtoons, Tower of God is a rarity in that it is an anime based on non-Japanese published source material. Following the Twenty-Fifth Baam, or Yoru, the show follows his journey through the eponymous tower to reunite with his friend Rachel. Said to grant any wish to those that reach its top, the tower poses a mighty and deadly gauntlet for each of its floors. While a shounen at heart, this is a unique spin on the genre with amazing animation and fantastic music. Also featuring: mahjong rants and some other manga reviews. Haven’t seen this show?

Jonesing for some baseball in this era of social distancing? The Aniki brothers reconnect with their love of the game with Cross Game. A delightful character driven show, this Cross Game centers on how baseball and the love of family and friends bring people together. Focusing on Ko, an up and coming pitcher and his childhood friend, Aoba, who teaches him all he knows, follow their journey in reconciling the past, discovering what they have in each other, and making their way towards the Koshien, the Japanese high-school baseball equivalent of the NCAA men’s basketball tournament.

Who said CG anime was terrible? Well, we did, but Houseki no Kuni is a strong case that CG can be used to build a compelling and engaging show. In a world where minerals are human-like, Phos and other gem-people must protect the remainder of their kind of the relentless assault of the mooninites. A unique show that strips characters of their sex, passes Lovecraftian horror off as bright fantasy, and makes us rethink our position on using computer graphics for anime production.

The Aniki brothers go head to head with Hi Score Girl, the show that asks “Can being a Street Fighter arcade rat get you a high school love triangle?” The short answer is yes, at least for our boy Haruo. An avid early-90’s king of his video-game domain, his reign is threatened by the school princess Ono. Growing from rivalry to love, their relationship is built on the solid foundation of joysticks, coins, and the joy of defeating all opponents. However, when a new player, Hidaka, arrives to the game of love, who will become champion of Haruo’s heart? One of the best romance shows we’ve watched in a long time, this is a must watch.

Determined to bet their own destruction, the brothers take a chance on the gambling anime that is a mashup of Poker Stars, Bollywood and Jojo: Kakegurui. Set in a high-school where your success and even life are tied to your gambling skills, the seemingly mild-mannered transfer student Yumeko Jabami upturns the social order with her insatiable desire for the ultimate gamble. While absolutely bananas, this show offers interesting games, crazy drama, and something of a mashup of Bollywood and Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure. Also featuring: How Clumsy Are You Miss-Ueno, Houseki no Kuni, Toilet-Bound Hanako-san, and Katanagatari. Haven’t seen this show? Go watch Kakegurui! Watch before you listen! Like Aniki?

The brothers check out a love letter to the dream and drive of the anime creation process with Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken! With more goblins than a first level Dungeons and Dragons adventure module, Eizouken follows three first year high school girls as they pool their distinct skill sets to live out their dream of creating animation. With its colorful and immersive look at the creative process from vision to production, this anime is probably one of the best offerings of 2020.

After reviewing the first two seasons of Netflix’s original series Castlevania, the Aniki brothers try out the latest season to see how it measures up. Set shortly after the events of the last season, the third installment follows four distinct plot threads focusing on two protagonist and two antagonist groups as they make their way in the land of Wallachia following the defeat of Dracula and his army. The brother’s first encounter with Castlevania was disappointing. Can Castlevania 3 regain their faith in the series? Also featuring: Rising of the Shield Hero, Listeners, and Tower of God.

Due to plague, the brothers are stuck inside with nothing to do. Good thing this week After School Dice Club offers a solution with board games! Shy Miki just wants to cruise through high school without social interaction. However, through her chance meeting with Aya, a bubbly girl, and Midori, a megane who works part time at a game store, Miki learns all about board games and how they can solve all of life’s problems.

We did it internet! Aniki has reached 100 episodes! And to celebrate our age, the brothers watch the (arguably) progenitor of all anime: Slayers. Following the incredibly talented sorceress Lina Inverse and her traveling swordsman companion Gourry, this early 90s anime takes its audience on a hilarious romp through a Dungeons and Dragons fever dream. It not only became an icon in its own right within anime history, but has inspired an entire generation of anime and manga creators who are now making the shows you know and love airing today.

The Aniki brothers get pitched a show called No Guns Life about a guy with a gun for a head and what are they going to do, say no? Of course not. In this fast paced cyberpunk noir, Juuzou Inui is said man with a revolver for a head. After meeting a boy who has the ability to control others who have cybernetic extensions, he is pulled deeper and deeper into a conspiracy that may finally reveal his forgotten past and tear down the fabric of the city around him.

The brothers get into the swing of 2020 with the action packed movie continuation of Youjo Senki: The Saga of Tanya the Evil. The saga continues in this alternate-history mashup of the two world wars and specifically the siege of lenningrad. However, Tanya meets her match in the equally blessed/cursed American soldier Mary Sioux[sic]. When the Russian Federation throws divisions of soldiers at Tanya’s small band of men and an overpowered renegade out for revenge catches up to her, can Tanya miracle her way out of this one?
