8 Strong Female Leads in Anime

7 Bitter-Sweet Endings that Left Us Crying on the Floor

Some anime makes us ball our eyes out because of how sad the ending is. Others are tragic but don’t have such a depressing ending because they leave some room for hope. From ambiguous deaths to hope that characters will live on despite their passing, they’re bittersweet, and we smile through our tears because at least we have that one good thing to carry us over. We will spoil endings. Spoilers ahead. We repeat spoilers ahead. Nobunaga the Fool In the end, Nobunaga was betrayed by Mitsuhide, and was killed by him but not before...


Anime Genres Explained by Anime Memes

Anime memes are a way of life. They’re also a perfect way to capture a big idea in as few words as possible. Don’t believe us? Let’s try to explain various anime genres with anime memes! Action & Adventure   *narrating in a deep voice* In a world where, for some reason, EVERYONE has some kind of unique fighting style, this main character has a fighting style to out-style THEM ALL (until they meet -DUN DUN DUN!- the antagonist)!

5 Cute Anime Girls Who Will Probably Kill You

Don’t let these cute anime girls fool you. They all could kill you without hesitation. The only question is… would they? If they did, would they still look cute doing it? Important questions. Bring on the Cute Killers! Rory Mercury (GATE) A cute anime girl who loves to kill for the god, Emloy. She was even introduced in a blood shedding way. Hopefully, our introductions would be much nicer. Squid Girl (Squid Girl) She’s super cute, but your death won’t come on purpose. You’ll die because her tentacles are able to bring down walls, strangle,...


7 of Our Favorite Anime Sword Fighters

There are many different types of sword fighters in anime and each sword user handles the style differently. Many of these characters have different reasons for picking up the blade, but each one of them handles it with grace. Akame (Akame ga Kill!)   Akame is the backbone of the rebellion against the corruption of the capital, with assassinations being her speciality. With Murasame, a sword bestowed with a fatal curse, all she needs to do is land one blow, and the curse, like a poison, finishes the assignment. The kills weigh heavily on her heart, but...


Sweet Moments in Anime that Made You Feel Warm Inside

March 3rd is Make Someone Happy Day! In celebration, we wanted to give you sweet moments in anime that made us genuinely smile and laugh. Sweet and sugary moments happen all the time in anime, sometimes when you least expect it. Some are filled with hilarious antics, and others with cute interludes of real life. Here is our list of top feel good anime moments!   Butt Tree (My Love Story!) Ah! One of the best bromances in anime we have seen in a while. One of their favorite spots is the “butt pine.” They found it...


Our 9 Favorite Black Haired Anime Characters

These black-haired anime characters are known for their rational minds and their ability to keep calm under pressure. From assassins to fortune tellers, they do their chosen profession to the best of their capabilities. They always look at the bigger picture and aren’t afraid to take chances. Here are our favorite onyx-hued characters! Rahzel Anadis (Hatenkou Yugi) One of the loudest and most positive-minded in this group, Rahzel has one of the sharpest minds. Clever and sometimes… not so clever. She fights hard for the downtrodden and those she wants to protect. With an iron-will at her core,...


10 Anime Screenshots that Strongly Resemble Emoji

We could probably find 50 or 100 screenshots that strongly resemble emoji verrrry easily… BUT, for the sake of time, let’s go with our top ten! “Woman Gesturing No” Emoji (Matoi the Sacred Slayer) Could this anime screenshot possibly look any closer to the “Woman Saying Nope” emoji? You put your foot down and tell ‘em who’s boss, Yuma-chin! “Neutral Face” Emoji (Haikyu!!) We’ve all had a moment where the only possible response is, “Hm.” Hinata from Haikyu!! can relate. “Confounded Face” Emoji (Gugure! Kokkuri-san) We don’t know...


Anime Crews That Represent Your #SquadGoals

There are some anime crews and ensembles that just have the BEST team chemistry. The show just wouldn’t be the same if it weren’t for the energy of each character. Squad Goal Level Anime Teams Haikyu!! Few groups mesh together nearly as well as the boys of the Karasuno High volleyball team. IRL, you’ve probably experienced the joys and pains of winning and losing as a team, and the show’s strength is making you feel like you’re part of their journey. Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun One of the many things that make...


Sentai Staff Picks: Our Most Beautiful Anime Girls

Anime, whether you’re a long-time fan, or new to the genre, is an art form. Among the many artistic choices that go into anime, one thing that can set a show apart is its character designs. It’s no secret that anime is known for its feminine characters, in fact, our catalogue is home to some of the most beautiful ladies that exist in the fictional realms! Everyone has a favorite anime lady, so we asked around the office to compile a list of some of our most beautiful anime girls. Hestia (Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up...


Sad Anime Drama to Watch When You Just Want to Feel Something

Sometimes you just want to have a good cry. We have gathered our favorite sad anime drama to watch for those days when you just want to feel. These stories are eloquent in the way they destroy the nonsense of our everyday lives. Angel Beats The story takes place in a school but in reality, (SPOILER ALERT) it’s Limbo. The place souls go after they have passed away. Unfortunately, this isn’t Paradise, but a place where a soul must overcome their regrets in order to pass on. As the characters battle it out, we see the tragic stories...


5 Badass Anime Girls Who Want to Discipline You

These ladies are willing to teach a thing or two, and won’t hesitate to punish you if you get out of line. With powerful personalities, these ladies like to dominate those around them, including their lovers. These are just a few of the badass anime girls who want to discipline you and want to make you love them. They might be a hero or a villain (depending on who you ask), but at the end of the day, they just want to be loved. Saeko Busujima (High School of the Dead) Shown at first as a...


6 Dangerous Anime Characters You Don't Want to Piss Off

These dangerous anime characters are the last people you want to anger.  With differing personalities there is one unifying mantra all of these characters abide by: piss them off and you’re dead.

Though Rena can come off as a bit of an airhead, when she reveals her...


6 Anime Weapons That We REALLY Want

As every anime fan knows, the medium is full of stunning explosions, extreme hair styles, and astonishing clothing designs, but anime gets particularly imaginative when it turns its attention to weapons. Sometimes, characters are so connected to a weapon that they’re rarely seen without it. Such is the case with quite a few of the anime weapons we have in our anime bunker! Chaika’s Gundo Rifle (Chaika ~ The Coffin Princess) Among the other mysteries surrounding her, Chaika Trabant lugs around a conspicuous coffin. Inside is a Gundo Sniper Rifle, a gun that allows her to...


Our Favorite Purple Haired Anime Characters

When purple-haired anime characters come to mind, we tend to automatically think of them as the cool and collected type. These characters seem stand-offish, but some of them are just misunderstood sweethearts. With many characters taking the mauve mantle, each brings a unique spin to one of our favorite colors. Yui Kusanagi (Kamigami no Asobi) Upon landing in a mythical garden after touching an ancestral sword, Yui is tasked with teaching the meaning of love to gods who are emotionally distant from humanity. With her exceptionally strong personality she never gives up and isn’t easily pushed around...


Our Favorite Green Haired Anime Characters

The coolest thing about green haired anime characters is that there is no specific trait they all share, but they all tend to be intrinsically unique! With each boasting an entirely different personality and story, you’ll have to watch each show to grasp the full range of what these green haired characters have to offer. Mion and Shion (When They Cry) At first sight, these two green haired girls are simply cute twins, so sweet that you might think they’re from a moe show, or perhaps a shoujo. That couldn’t be farther from the truth. ...


August is "Admit You're Happy Month" AKA Tsundere Appreciation Month

Not kidding – August is listed across the interwebs as “Admit You’re Happy Month.” Being anime folk, our minds took this phrase and instantly applied it to one of our favorite character types: the tsundere. For those of you who didn’t already know, a tsundere is a character type which is (simply) described as “one who is hard on the outside, and soft on the inside.” They are often the character that will act mean in public (especially to people they like), and then stammer and scream “Idiot!” when embarrassed. If you’re still confused, or maybe wondering...

Our Favorite Anime Beach Episodes to Kick Off Your Summer

Ah, the beach episode. Almost every anime has one, and the phrase “beach episode” has even worked its way into the anime fan lexicon. It’s a splendid time to admire your favorite waifus in their bikinis (or one-piece swimsuits for the shy ones) or your favorite shirtless husbandos. Sometimes, though, the beach episode makes a splash in the plot (in more ways than one). 7 Interesting Anime Beach Episodes Episode 16 – Maid Latte at the Beach House (Maid-sama!) Maids and beaches. That’s a winning combination right there. This particular beach episode explores a vulnerable...


Our Favorite Blonde Anime Characters

Blonde anime characters are usually characters with ties to the West, or with bubbly, optimistic personalities, especially for girls. On the other hand, we’ve noticed that blonde anime boys tend to be on the handsome, bishounen side of the character spectrum. Either way, we already know that this list won’t be able to encompass ALL of our favorite anime blondes! Sentai’s Top 10 Anime Characters with Blonde Hair Ohta (Tanaka-kun is Always Listless) Do we really need to explain what makes Ohta awesome? He literally carries the brunt of his inexplicable friendship with the listless...

Our Favorite Blue Haired Anime Characters

Anime characters with blue hair are not uncommon in our favorite titles, and they are often pretty awesome. When a character is designed with blue hair in an anime, it’s usually meant to reflect their intelligent personalities; however, it’s always fun when designers break the tropes and let the characters make the color their own! 8 of Our Favorite Blue Haired Characters Lelei La Lalena (GATE) Lelei is a blue-haired mage in the Special Region. With her unbound curiosity and frightening intelligence, Lelei is one of the first people the JSDF meets that learns enough...

Our Favorite Pink Haired Anime Characters

Anime is well known for its realism and true-to-life situations, characters and physics. Yeah… we all know that anime is rarely realistic when handling certain things, and hair color is probably one of the most noticeable of these aspects. In anime, you’ll find character hair colors like blue, purple, green - any color under the sun and then some! Today, we’re focusing on the pink haired characters of the anime world. Here are some of our faves. Meroune Lorelei Du Neptune (Monster Musume: Everyday Life With Monster Girls) As the fifth monster girl...

A List of Really Lucky (and Unlucky) Anime Characters

St. Patrick’s Day fell on March 17. Although the holiday is meant to honor one of Ireland’s patron saints, most folks in the USA use this holiday as an excuse to dye everything green, indulge in parades, and party. Since St. Patrick’s Day is thematically about “The Luck of the Irish,” we thought we’d take a look at some anime characters that are strangely trapped in the clutches of luck. Good or bad? We’ll let you decide. Mutta Nanba (Space Brothers) When the character himself believes that he’s inherently unlucky, you know he’s in trouble....

New Year's Resolutions From Our Favorite Anime Klutzes

A common stereotype: the adorable and clumsy anime character that most of us can (and usually do) relate to at any given moment in our lives.
