Animerica is an Anime Review Show by two American Anime fans called Fox Catcher and Phoenix, played by Alan Morrisey and Will Ryan, respectively. It usually involves them watching an entire anime, while making jokes, pointing out plotholes (which as of now is incredibly frequent in a majority of the episodes), among other things. Unlike most review shows, each episode is connected by an overarching storyline, in a similar fashion as ''WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall''. While most of the anime they call terrible, some of them they actually liked, such as [[spoiler: ''Anime/TokyoMajin''.]]

[[spoiler: Upon Fox Catcher's mysterious disappearance at the end of season 1 (due to Alan Morrisey wanting to quit the show), Phoenix spends the second season reviewing anime alone, and in season 3, is joined by the robot Atlas, played by JT Kamp, Ryan's co-host on their other show, Cover By Cover.]]
* AcceptableTargets: [[invoked]] A lot really, but largely when it comes with Phoenix. Some specific examples include the SuperRobot genre and ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann''.
* BerserkButton: Many things for Both Phoenix AND Fox Catcher, the most common being pointless nudity and massive plot holes. See RapeAsDrama below.
* BiblicalBadGuy: The ones responsible for the creation of the keys and the unleashing of Viquor Chaos are revealed to be [[spoiler: ArchangelMichael, ArchangelGabriel, and ArchangelRaphael]].
* BigBad: [[spoiler: ArchangelMichael, ArchangelGabriel, and ArchangelRaphael.]]
* BizarreAlienBiology: [[spoiler: Fox Catcher's ears]].
* BrokenPedestal: Phoenix, in regards to Goro Taniguchi's feelings towards the second season of ''Anime/CodeGeass'', which he did a marathon review of in December of 2013. While Phoenix initially felt bad towards Taniguchi for the ExecutiveMeddling towards the show, by the time he got to reviewing Episode 20, Phoenix went from pitying Taniguchi to being annoyed, feeling that Taniguchi, for all the trouble he went through making the second season, did nothing to try to curb its declining quality.
* CausticCritic: Phoenix, and very much so.
* DarkerAndEdgier: The second season, natch.
* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: [[invoked]]Phoenix's most consistent BerserkButton, established all the way back in the review of the {{Manga/Guyver}} anime. {{Anime/Scryed}}, {{Manga/SamuraiGun}} and {{Anime/Gilgamesh}} are other notable offenders.
* HairTriggerTemper: Even without his {{Berserk Button}}s being pushed, Phoenix has a temper problem.
* KidsAreCruel: Phoenix was quite disturbed during the scene from ''Manga/ElfenLied'' when [[spoiler: those kids brutally beat Lucy's puppy to death]], to the point he spared the viewers most of the scene, which he said was too drawn out.
* NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer: Invoked a number of times throughout the show.
* RapeAsDrama: When reviewing ''Manga/ElfenLied'', Phoenix was SO disgusted with [[spoiler: The Scene revealing Mayu was sexually abused by her stepfather.]] that he had to take a minute to compose himself. He states a minute or so later he was originally going to verbally tear the entire scene apart, he was so angry.
* RidiculouslyHumanRobot: Atlas.
* RunningGag: From season three onwards, [[{{Narm}} "QUALITY SCENE!"]]
* [[invoked]]SoBadItsGood: As much as he eviscerated ''Literature/{{Another}}'' in his review, he still says people can give it a watch and enjoy for what it is.
* [[invoked]]TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot:
** During his review of ''Literature/{{Another}}'', he points out that its concept was very good but it was bogged down by filler, underdeveloped characters, and an ending [[{{Narm}} that was more silly than dramatic]].
** He also accuses ''Anime/MoribitoGuardianOfTheSpirit'' of being this.
* TransformationTrinket: Both Fox Catcher and Phoenix gain [[spoiler: what appears to be a ''Manga/{{Guyver}}'' unit, which they will use to morph in order to continue reviews for especially terrible scenes. Unlike most examples of this Trope, They are actually switching places with another entity which will do the scene(s) in their place (or until they themselves can no longer take it).]]
* {{Wangst}}: [[invoked]] Neither of the reviewers have much tolerance for characters of this trope, especially Phoenix. Unless the reason is INCREDIBLY good, they will proceed to verbally bash the character.
