Want a rom-com involving saliva? Check this out.

Different is a bit of an understatement describing Mysterious Girlfriend X with how the series goes about as a romantic comedy. While its saliva premise would have you think this is some sort of fetish anime, it actually serves to provide symbolism focused on the developments of Akira and Urabe's ...

A solid gun-action title mixing mystery and supernatural elements

The second title made in Bee Train's well-known "girls with guns" trilogy, Madlax mixes supernatural mystery with its gun-action when a professional assassin and the daughter of a wealthy family become entangled in a conspiracy by a secret organization called Enfant having their own diabolical plans involving the two. First ...

An interesting experiment for film that won't be for everyone.

Twilight of the Cockroaches is a bit of an oddity for me to cover here thanks to its mix of live action and animated footage used for its run.The movie is focused on a colony of cockroaches who seemingly live a peaceful coexistence with the human owner of an apartment. ...

Another subpar offering from the guys at Gonzo!

I didn't think I'd be hopping back to Shangri-La again. When I think of this series, I think wasted potential. A post-apocalyptic anime focused around themes such as reduction of a country's carbon footprint for economic stability and dealing with the corrupt creator of a utopian city would seem like ...

A solid entry in the suspense genre of anime.

Btooom is a survival/ suspense style anime focused on male lead Ryota struggling to survive on an island where he and others are forced into a survival game based off an online video game that he is one of the top global players on. The series mixes focus between exploring ...

One of the original popular shounen battle anime on Toonami.

Yuyu Hakusho is one of the few Toonami titles I never had a chance to see too often during the block's peak of popularity in the early to mid 2000s. It is a shounen battle anime following in the vein of titles like Dragon Ball Z and Saint Seiya that ...

Two words not to use with this series: mature and believable.

Moonlight Mile is focused on two mountain climbers who meet one another during a climb up Mount Everest and make a challenge to one another to see who can make it onto the moon first. The series then focuses on the different journeys both men make to accomplish their goal ...

A solid historic/ action title mixing swordplay and folklore.

Intrigue in the Bakumatsu is another Japanese historical anime that mixes historical re-imagining with Japanese folklore, in this case the final years of the Tokugawa shogunate as swordsman Akizuki Yojiro tries to track down the whereabouts of a cursed mask that a shady auction owner has in his possession. Throughout ...

A nice example of a train wreck anime with a lot of hype.

It's been quite a while since I've seen a series as laughably bad as Future Diary. Focused on a survival game with our weak-willed male lead Yukiteru and a yandere gal named Yuno obsessively in love with him, this series is a huge mess with plot and character developments, proper ...

A controversial psychological drama that won't be for everyone.

Aku no Hana's been the Spring season's most controversial title among anime fans and a great deal of that has to do with the anime's choice of animation style coming in the form of rotoscoping. I might as well address this issue before remarking on other aspects of the anime. ...

A very underrated historical/ supernatural anime title.

Note: My thoughts here cover both "seasons" of the Hakkenden anime.This is quite the underrated gem as I haven't seen many reviews of it mentioned online. Before I cover the highlights to Hakkenden, I might as well cover the obvious issue with the series in the form of its animation. ...

The most thought-provoking and elaborate title of 2011.

Directed by Kunihiko Ikuhara, the same mind responsible for the surreal and complex symbolism portrayed in 90s anime Revolutionary Girl Utena, Mawaru Penguindrum is just as surreal and complicated in its exploration of the issues faced by the Takakura siblings as Kanba and Shouma try to find the means necessary ...

Solid historical title with complex plot and characters.

Le Chevalier D'Eon made for a solid historical title mixed in magical elements as it explores the hostile tensions between royal figures in the monarchies of the world's powerful countries in the 18th century mixed in with D'Eon's search for answers in discovering the cause surrounding the death of his ...

A solid sci-fi action-adventure-comedy with some faults.

I must admit that I got quite a bit of enjoyment out of seeing Birdy the Mighty: Decode. While the series does seemingly set itself up as a typical space action-adventure about an alien agent stopping criminals, it does quite a bit to make itself stand out. It sets up ...

A mixed bag of a fantasy-adventure series.

As a whole, The Sacred Blacksmith is a mixed bag in its exploration of Cecily and Luke's ordeals surrounding the Demon Swords and the mysterious man causing troubles throughout the kingdom the two young heroes inhabit. The series essentially divides itself into arcs focused around various conflicts that Cecily and ...
