North America’s second largest anime convention, Anime North, was last weekend and over 30000 anime fans joined the fun. Among them were endless hordes of cosplayers showing off their efforts. Though it was impossible to capture them all, AniTAY has collected an assortment of those that caught our eyes. Enjoy.
Every season, we here at AniTAY do a list of Anime that You Should be Watching around the middle of the season, an article type that we blatantly stole from Richard Eisenbeis. While this article is an awesome collaboration and it’s a great help for those people interested in the currently airing anime season, it…
“What? It’s not like we went out of our way to get you these recommendations! A few days past the 14th is good enough for you anyway!”
Every day, for the month of December, a new gif was added to this page to represent a countdown to the new year. Some gifs were comical, others were serious, but all of them showcased a different anime that aired and finished in 2015. The following is the result; a collection of gifs that may take a while to load, but…

If you’re interested in anime but, don’t know where to start, we at AniTAY have made this Beginner’s Guide to Anime, trying to provide a one-stop shop to familiarize yourself with the ins and outs, vocabulary, and…
The Fall 2015 anime season is just around the corner. You probably have a few shows that you plan to watch, but a sequel or two may have also caught your eyes. Unfortunately you’re not sure what you need to watch in order to catch up on those shows getting a sequel. No worries, I’ve got your back.
Before we begin, let me make one thing perfectly clear: I LOVE anime and first-person shooters. In fact, I’ve been watching and playing them respectively since my pre-teens, and I’ve always been captivated by the former’s depth (when done right) and the latter’s high-octane action (again, when done right).
Hey there all you TAYers, Ani-TAYers, and everyone else who has stumbled across this post. It’s once again time for you all to answer one burning question: What are the best anime of summer 2015?
Cosplay comes in many forms; the weird, the wild, and the wondrous. The only thing that remains the same across all is the creative effort that everyone puts into their design.
Food Wars: Shokugeki no Soma in a new anime that has just started airing this spring. In the show, as the title states, there are multiple occasions when food takes the spotlight. The show’s main character, Soma, is one hell of a chef according to the reactions of the people that eat his food. There have been…
About a week ago, Kaizival asked Ani-TAY about stories of anime that changed our lives. This is my response to that. It turns out the following is something I've been meaning to write for a while, so I figured it was finally time.
I am a huge fan of sports, like a massive uber fan. There's only a handful of sports I actively disdain in every capacity (like golf, motorsports, and cricket to name a few) so being a fan of both sports and anime it would seem like a no-brainer that I'd like sports anime, right? Well, that's where you'd be somewhat…

To SOLDIER 1st Class Zack Fair of Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII, this phrase, this motto of his, became his modus operandi. His whole life revolved around pursuing his dreams with all his heart, and defending his honor. And for some reason, after all the times I've played through that game and talked about it, and…

This is the second part of a loosely connected three-part article series I'm writing which began with my previous article. Today I'm going to go deeper and describe the nuances behind the video game story that I love so much and why I think they are the greatest in many ways.
It's a controversial topic in gaming: should the focus be on improving the "gameplay" aspects of the game or making a story worth telling?
