5 Great Quirky / Absurd English Dubbed Animes on Netflix

This is a guest post by Sarah Rexman. If there is one thing I love, it’s Anime. That kitschy form of animation that comes to us from the land of the rising sun, Japan; the weirder, the better. I also love shows that are self-aware and don’t mind tearing down that 4th wall like Rocky […]

Crisp, Tense, Pretty: A Review of Season 1 of Downton Abbey
