It's not more or less than we expect, but still great

Even though I haven’t read the light novels upon which the series and this movie are based on I’ve got to say that the world and characters of the Haruhi Suzumiya franchise are my favorites alongside Evangelion, they’re wonderfully developed, ingenious and open to interpretation. This movie, while not without ...

It looks great but the story is a laughable mess

The Iron Man character has received an incredible boost in popularity lately, not surprising considering the tremendous success of the two movies directed by John Favreau and starring Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark.  This success has been translated into toys, videogames, soundtracks and other merchandise. Now it’s turn for ...

Surprisingly unfunny, unsurprisingly good looking

Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru is the latest anime by the great Shaft, based on the manga of the same name by Masakazu Ishiguro.  "I heard Shaft is making a new maid animuh" The first episode, "Fortune Cafe Before & After", introduces the Seaside Maid Cafe located in the Maruko Shopping District, workplace ...

Though a bit convulted, it delivers everything you love about Eva

Neon Genesis Evangelion is one of those rare series that go beyond the realm of animation to become a pop culture phenomenon.   Its dark storyline, flashy action and likeable characters have gained it millions of fans since it first came out back in 1995. So it’s no surprise that Gainax, ...

Some annoying parts aside, it's still the Haruhi we know and love

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya has become, for better or worse one of the most loved and at the same time hated anime series of all time. All these mixed feelings have a lot to do with Kyoto Animation’s decisions regarding the show. But in the end they always deliver ...

Great action meets crappy story.

CANAAN is the latest anime by Masahiro Ando and it's based on the Wii visual novel 428: Fūsa Sareta Shibuya de. But unlike most animes based on visual novels this one is based on one of its side stories and not the main plot and even though it’s a little ...

A great, but flawed cyberpunk series.

  I never really payed attention to Ergo Proxy when it came out as I really didn’t care for this type of shows, it was only after I rewatched Ghost in the Shell that I got interested, and I’m glad I did, because even though it’s not perfect or a ...

School Days is darker than your average harem.

  At first glance School Days is your everyday harem comedy filled with panty shots and tons of fan service, and unless you’re familiar with the visual novels you’ll be surprised at how fast it evolves from that to an incredibly sad and shocking soap opera.The series has lots of ...

The fate of destruction is the joy of rebirth

If I were to describe The End of Evangelion in one sentence it would simply be “wow”.  No other movie, animated or not has had the impact EoE had in me, it’s beautifully shocking, jaw-dropping and most of all depressing. End of Evangelion shows us a world filled with selfishness, ...

Newcomers and longtime fans will find something to like about it

There is something that always attracted me to Evangelion; it’s probably the great characters who are so emotionally disturbed and yet I can relate to them in one way or another, maybe is the fantastic thought-provoking story, or it could be the sublime animation and awe-inspiring soundtrack. Yes, I’m a ...

A watchable experience, but it's too annoying to recommend

I would never understand why so many people regard this as one of the best animes right now nor would I understand why people find its characters so appealing or its cliché story so good. Now, don’t get me wrong, I like Naruto, I like it as much as I ...

Fans of mecha or sci-fi anime are better off ignoring this one.

Just how good is Mars the Terminator? Well, that depends on how bad your taste is. The six episodes of this thirteen episode series I watched were as painful to watch as this review is to write, just because of the fact that this review reminds me of the show, ...

Kodomo no Jikan is a charming, enjoyable and funny show.

Now, Kodomo no Jikan is one of the most controversial animes of our time, so me, being the curious cat that I am decided to see what the fuss was all about since all I knew about it was that it involved a very young girl trying to seduce her ...

Fantastic re-invention of a classic film

Samurai 7 is based on the iconic japanese movie “Seven Samurai” by Akira Kurosawa. The movie is considered one of the greatest of all time and a masterpiece, so doing an anime based on it is a risky business. Gladly this anime does a lot of things right, from the ...

There are many DBZ clichés in this movie, but it's enjoyable.

Dragon Ball Z is probably the biggest anime ever created, and of course it’s going to have movies, some are good, some are....pretty much garbage. This however is one of the good ones, in fact is probably the best DBZ movie so far. The three of might was released back ...
