Yes it’s anime. Yes it’s Star Wars. Yes it’s good. First and last negative comment about this series: there’s one episode I don’t like. But that’s the extent of my negative comments, because overall this series was overwhelming, in the best sense. Star Wars has deep roots in Japanese storytelling tradition. Most people don’t know how connected George Lucas was […]
Oftentimes people fear that which they don’t know or understand. But sometimes someone comes along who looks for the beauty in the unknown or the mysterious. Such were the creators behind the mystical and beautiful anime named The Ancient Magus’ Bride. Among the many things this anime does very well, the way its writers portray magic is one of the […]
This anime is extraordinarily brutal and I’m not completely sure why.
There are two kinds of isekai anime. In the first, the MC is fairly ordinary, and has to struggle and strive to achieve greatness. This is not that! Overlord is the second kind, where the MC is so overwhelmingly powerful that they have zero chance of losing a single conflict. And it’s so much rip-roaring, rocking fun! Through four seasons […]
The world of Japanese anime once again edges just a little closer to the world of American industrial entertainment. And I’m beginning to worry about it.
Sabikui Bisco is one of those wild shounen anime that brings back fun memories of a bygone era in the world of anime. And I really like it. Hang on a second while I crank up my giant crab, and we’ll get started.
Sometimes the beauty of anime surpasses any limits I imagined possible. But one thing is certain: I will never cease to be amazed when those limits are broken anew.
A popular manga and a lot of fanfare don’t always translate to a successful anime. The Great Jahy Will Not Be Defeated had both and still only turned out mildly interesting.
This is how anime should be.
If I could write this review in a whisper, it would be very appropriate. Imagine, the text being so quiet that you have to get really close to the screen to read it. So close in fact that both you and the electronic device become uncomfortable with the proximity. Hilarious no?
A beautifully sad parade of personalities.
“Put that ass away!”
One of the few real-world issues I will lament in this forum is the unhappy love of death that occasionally finds its way into Japanese anime. This show, Platinum End, is another iteration of the kind of show that’s obsessed with death and dying. While this anime is intriguing at times, ultimately it is completely overshadowed by that darkness which […]
Does anybody know what an “aquatope” is?
A little hilarious, a little confusing, a little pretty, a little relatable even, Miss Kuroitsu from the Monster Development Department combines the fantastical with the mundane and does it pretty well.
We’ve had enough of these essay-length titles! Let’s just use a number for a title!
