This post looks back at the 12 months of 2014 and at the anime Geek Native has blogged about. We’ve reviewed old shows and new, we’ve had movies, episodes and whole series to look at. The titles here aren’t restricted to what was published in 2014 but to what we wrote about in the year. After all, how do you even measure an anime’s release date any more? From the first time it screened in a cinema in Japan?
To keep up with episodic reviews of anime tune into the Irregular Reconnaissance column. Reviews of seasons and movies tend to get posts all to themselves.
