Dream (Level 21)

Despite my Internet woes, I've managed to complete High School of the Dead and will have my Ani-Crap Review of it up either tonight or tomorrow. I should also hopefully have an update on my Internet situation sometime in the next couple days.

A cookie-cutter effort at an action anime,

About all I can say of resuming my watch of Book of Bantorra from over four years ago is "meh". Having an influential crime fighting group against an evil syndicate (in this case, a fanatic cult) is nothing new in anime for me and my indifference further rises with the ...

An engaging feudal era film mixed with supenatural lore.

Not too often I get to see a Japanese feudal era title mixed with elements of folklore to see out of recent efforts that isn't spun off from dating sims or manga as Hakuoki and Hakkenden: Eight Dogs of the East. This movie spins its own unique take on the ...

Quite weak in quality compared to its first season.

Compared to the first season, this second season of Digimon Adventures is a step down in quality quite heavily. With exception to Ken, the new characters lacked the depth and problems that the first season kids experienced. This is especially a problem with new kid Davis, who is portrayed as ...

Another train wreck anime, this one not too original.

Guess the rumors were true of this being as much of a train wreck with plot as Code Geass was and Guilty Crown sure loves milking its tropes and stealing plot setups from other anime. The premise of Japan being taken over by a corrupt foreign power and a mysterious ...

Still memorable over a decade later when I first seen it.

Digimon is one of my guilty pleasure anime. Sure it has enough predictable elements: several children are on a journey where they see various monsters a la Pokemon, Digimon are beaten to the point of defeat until their owner finds the power within to give them a boost to beat ...

Enough wasted potential for a romance drama.

Talk about a big waste of potential. On paper, Natsuyuki Rendezvous's premise seemed like a unique one in its focus on a love triangle involving a young part-time flower shop worker, his older manager, and the ghost of his manager's dead husband. The dynamics of the triangle involved Ryosuke trying ...

One of the overhyped titles of the Gundam franchise.

Like Gundam Wing, SEED got a great deal of hype and praise from fans in the early to mid 2000s among Gundam fans. At the same time, there are folks that accuse SEED of being a poor-man's Gundam 0079 with its blatant rip-off of story elements and structure from the ...

Sunrise got overambitious with this mecha anime.

This one's a bit of an oddball. Zone of the Enders: Dolores offers up some original ideas and treatment of the mecha genre which carry enough hits and misses. Rather than being a young teenage boy whisked into battle with a mecha, our lead James Links is a middle-aged man ...

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 ...
