Welcome to Star Crossed Anime Blog! The site originally started out on Blogsome in 2005 by Psgels, where he gained a dedicated following that allowed him to grow the site into what it is today, and move the site into his own domain.

Since 2014, the site has expanded into a multi-author blog, with writers who carry their own interesting insight into the medium we all know and love. We reject the idea that all anime are infallible, and whether it be in our episodic reviews, Seasonal Previews, or even with non-Japanese animated films, we try our best to bring insight to the greatest and latest anime because it’s fun! Psgels is currently in hiatus owing to a particularly malicious writers block, but we wait for his return!

Hey, I’m psgels. I live in the Netherlands and I’m the founder of this site. The idea of the site started back in 2005, when I was a really big fan of series’ like Mahou Shoujotai, but couldn’t find any blog that covered them. In response to that I decided to create my own blog in order to vent my opinions. It started rather silly, but eventually it grew much larger than I ever thought it would.
My taste is weird. I look for series that dare to screw conventions. The ones that are ambitious in their storytelling, and dare to go off the beaten path. Anime is an art form, and it should behave like that.

SuperMario

Unlike most anime-fans, I did not grow up watching anime – yes, I had read some manga and had watched some anime when I were young, but I have forgotten mostly those now. Instead, my love from anime came from my passion for films (I consider myself more of film-nerd than anime lover) and my absolute appreciation for the medium of animation. Anime seems like a brainchild between those.

An Irish Anime fan. Though well versed in Visual novels, manga and video games. If it’s got an anime adaption chances are I have seen the source. Quite fond of the works of Kinoko Nasu and Gen Urobuchi. I don’t really have a favorite genre though I am not really fond of slice of life or sports. Well, lets have fun shall we?

I’m an educator and avid consumer of both music and anime. As a former English major, characters and story structure are my primary areas of expertise, though I’m learning to appreciate visual direction more and more. Not a fan of anime’s tendency to paint by numbers. Odds are I’ll blog just one series at a time, but I hope to lend a big hand for seasonal first impressions and yearly roundups. Thanks for having me!

Your everyday average Renaissance man. I Box, Fence, paint/wargame 40k and I work my 9-5 as a Software Engineer. What can I say, I like to keep busy. I got into anime on your normal Shonen of Yu-Yu Hakusho, Rurouni Kenshin, and Naruto, and to this day they are near and dear to my heart. Since then though I have branched out, falling in love with darker, more tragic works such as Berserk or Vagabond, focusing on more Seinen works. I hope you enjoy my writing, let’s go find a series that can make us cry!

K-Off checking in. I’m formerly the main resident technician of the site since Psgel’s hiatus. I write the occasional game reviews, and when I’m not working on the site or writing a review, you can find me keeping up to date on my favorite manga and games.

      Hello. At the moment I am the current administer of this site. We previously took down the contacts page do to getting overloaded with spam. I am guessing you wish to contact us for promotion reasons.

      I will state that the Star Crossed Anime Blog does not do promotion. This is purely a site for fans to write about anime or whatever the writers wish. Therefore we do not take on requests to advertise or promote.

    Hi,
    Hope you are having a great day!

    I’m Maria – a fan of comics, movies, and TV shows. I’ve been browsing the web recently to find some informational and engaging topics on the TV shows I adore most and I came across your website. I must say, I loved your content and found it very well written and educational. And that’s when it hit me. I adore sharing content about the most famous movies, TV shows, and comics, so I was wondering if you’d be interested in featuring an engaging and informative guest post from me?
    Here are some of the topics I thought would be a great addition to your website (though I am open for other ideas as well):

    “Wolverine vs Blade: A Battle for the Ages”
    “The History of Aladdin: Everything We Know So Far”

    Please let me know if you’d like to discuss these ideas further. Looking forward to your response.
    Thank you,
    Maria

Dororo – 24 [Dororo and Hyakkimaru]

Welcome one and all to the Dororo finale! It’s a difficult one, as parts of it are fantastic, while others just leave me confused. But all in all, I think I enjoyed it, and I definitely don’t regret my time with the series. So, all that said, let’s dive in. Starting off, I think Dororo […]

Fruits Basket (2019) – 12 [You Look Like You’re Having Fun]

More than any other episode, this week is where Fruits Basket embraces its two opposing spectrums the clearest: it’s reverse-harem hijinks of highschool life and romance and its dark drama about the Zodiac members. By that light, we can be able to see this adaptation’s quality by this episode alone. For example, this 2019 is […]

Carole & Tuesday – 11 [With or Without You]

Even with Carole & Tuesday standard, this episode is a letdown with many forced developments to move this predictable story forward. These include 1) Tuesday injures her hand but still manage to perform and win the bracket 2) just right at the moment Tuesday said no one in the family care for her, she gets […]

Sarazanmai – 11 [I Want to Connect, so Sarazanmai]

I must admit that days after watching this finale I still can’t wrap my head around all the events happened in this episode. Sarazanmai ends in a happy tone, something I didn’t expect from Ikuhara to be honest. On the most surface level, it’s a rescue mission from Kazuki and Enta to bring Toi back. […]

Kimetsu no Yaiba – 12 [The Boar Bares Its Fangs, Zenitsu Sleeps]

Welcome all to what is, for me, a very conflicted episode of Kimetsu no Yaiba. Filled with fantastic animation, some well thought out fights and a character I loathe no matter how great his scenes look. Let’s dive in! Starting off, Yaiba looked great this week. I don’t think that’s really up for contention. I have […]

Serial Experiments Lain – 8 [Rumors] – Throwback Thursday

Welcome to another episode of Acid Trip Weekly, also known as, Serial Experiments Lain! This week is one of the most confusing, yet simultaneously coherent episodes of anime I have ever watched. It’s impossible to summarize, so let’s just dive in. Starting off, like I said, this episode was an acid trip, both visually and […]

One Punch Man Season 2 – 10 [The Encirciling Net of Justice]

https://www.sakugabooru.com/data/2c523ad11331508ce3e674f68b79ccf2.mp4 Welcome one and all to a rather surprising week of One Punch Man Season 2! This week the animation was mostly fine, and interesting things happened, so let’s just jump right in! Starting off, I rail against the series a lot, but credit where it’s due. The sections of the Garou fight done by […]

Dororo – 23 [The Story of the Demons]

Welcome one and all to the penultimate episode of Dororo. We have brutality, we have drama, and we have a boatload of philosophy. Its everyone Game of Thrones Season 8 said it would be, but wasn’t. Is it too late to make that joke? Regardless, this was a good week for Dororo, so let’s jump […]

Mix – 11 [Try Pitching]

Good news for all you Mix fans out there: the show is likely to be two cour, as the Wikipedia page for its timeslot doesn’t have a replacement listed until October. That means three more months of baseball, romance, and mystifying Japanese puns before Hero Academia S4 kicks Mix off the air for the fall […]

[Star Crossed Anime Exclusive] Code Geass: Lelouch of the Resurrection Review – 80/100

I was lucky enough to be at Sakura-con in Seattle on 20 April 2019 for the Funimation’s movie premiere of Code Geass’ third movie with the Director himself, Gorō Taniguchi, along with his senior staff in attendance inside a room full of raving fans. Was it was worth the decade-long wait to have a worthy […]

Paranoia Agent Anime Review – 67/100

In an era of the mundane, where every series is the same moe blob, the weird sticks out. Even the most mediocre series can get attention just by being weird. Paranoia Agent is not mediocre, and it is far beyond simply “weird”. Written and Directed by Satoshi Kon, Paranoia Agent is one of his last […]

Boogiepop wa Warawanai (2019) (Winter 2019) Anime Review – 78/100

Just like the titular character, Boogiepop Phantom the series has become some sort of urban legend itself in this medium. Its Light Novels are amongst the first Light Novel ever released, dating back to mid-90s. Moreover, the franchise has endured the test of time, as it inspires anime, live-action adaptations and Boogiepop is a well-known […]

Kouya no Kotobuki Hikoutai (2019 Winter) Anime Review – 77/100

Coming to Kotobuki, there are lots of aspect that catch my attention: it’s from a famed director Tsutomu Mizushima who can turn the most trashable and genre-able concepts into something intriguing; it’s an CG show about air pilots: it has extended aerial combat set-pieces. Watching it till the end, I have to tip my hat […]

Kemurikusa (2019 Winter) Anime Review – 79/100

Kemurikusa is your very definition of an overlooked gem, one that never really gain much discussion anywhere, but one that has a distinctive style from an up-and-coming auteur who has full control of his projects. Coming to Kemurikusa, all the attention it has came from the fact that it is created by TATSUKI, a mastermind […]

Mob Psycho 100 S2 Anime Review – 87/100

Upon finishing this series, the only question on my mind was how many animators did Bones sacrifice on ONE’s altar to achieve this. Following their prior season, Mob Psycho 100 Season 2 continues Bones adaptation of webcomic and manga author ONE’s 4th work, Mob Psycho 100. ONE has also authored the critically acclaimed One Punch […]

Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai Review – 84/100

Anime draws on many different media types in its endless search for properties to adapt, but manga is still the king of the bunch. And why not? It’s a distinctly Japanese art form, their main demographics have significant overlap, and manga’s panel-based layout means that some of the anime staff’s work is already done. Plenty […]

Kaze ga Tsuyoku Fuiteiru Anime Review – 93/100

Recently, sports anime have become a bit of a dying breed. Falling into the same hole as Mecha, aside from a passionate base audience, most are overlooked. There are the occasional hits like Haikyuu, Yuri on Ice, or Darling in the Franxx for Mecha, but those are few and far between, often taking years. Even […]

A quick and dirty review of Garo: Vanishing Line
