My friend Rasean was the one who informed me of this series by saying, "Kill la Kill... THAT NEW HYPE.  I AM TELLING YOU OF IT NOW, lol. It's by Gainax, and you'll absolutely love it".  Studio Gainax has produced some of my favorite anime, including Neon Genesis Evangelion, Furi Kuri (FLCL), and one of the greatest anime of all time, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.  If these guys were starting something up again I knew it was going to shake up the industry.

With the series coming to an end after 24 episodes, I will tell you if Gainax has once again lived up to the high standards they have set for themselves with their previous works.  Will Kill la Kill prove to be a new classic or an utter disappointment?  Hit the jump for my review.

NIS America has now acquired Kanojo ga Flag wo Oraretara ("If Her Flag Breaks") for North America.  This series is based off of a light novel of the same name, much like Kyoukai no Kanata or Outbreak Company.  The author appears to be Toka Takei and is illustrated by Cuteg. Viewing currently being available through Crunchyroll and it is also planned for them to offer retail releases sometime in the future.

Kanojo ga Flag Oraretara is about a transfer student, Sota Hatate, who is able to see the future of all those around him via a flag that symbolizes their fate above their heads.  Also, he ends up living together with many beautiful girls instead of alone as planned when he transfered to the elite Hatagaya Academy.

From the description alone, this sounds like it is going to be a harem anime with the protagonist having some weird form of "Shinigami Eyes" (Think Death Note).  No idea if this is going to be a completely serious anime (With him bieng able to see the fate of those around him) or if it is going to be a light-hearted anime that focuses on the harem aspect (From the drawings, I would suggest the later).  You can check this series out on Crunchyroll right now if you are interested in seeing what it has to offer.

Top 5 Tuesdays is an article series that focuses on my "top five" anything on a given subject of my choosing that pertains to either gaming, anime, or manga.

Everyone was pretty hype when Super Street Fighter IV was announced since it was the first huge addition to Street Fighter IV, the CAPCOM fighting game that single-handedly ressurrected the genre from its grave.  We are now nearing the premiere of their latest update to the series, Ultra Street Fighter IV, adding five new characters...none of which I am impressed with in the least.

Go ahead and hit the jump to find out which characters make my cut for who I would prefer to be in the latest iteration of the Street Fighter IV series.
