Psycho Pass: The Movie Is Not the Climax You Were Expecting

Hot on the heels of Psycho Pass' second season comes Psycho Pass: The Movie. But as a movie that builds yet another layer to the franchise's lore and catches up with some old familiar faces, it is less the completion of the final picture and more just another piece in the puzzle—though an interesting one to be sure. » 1/12/15 4:00am 1/12/15 4:00am

After the fall iteration of the Monogatari franchise, I must admit to being a bit worried.

Sword Art Online is an anime with a great first half plagued by a mediocre second half. Luckily, Sword Art Online II does not suffer from a similar affliction.
