Just as over-the-top and flawed as Code Geass.

This series was giving me a number of vibes connected to Code Geass and I don't mean that in a good way. Star Driver appeared to be trying to mix around the classic archetypes of super robot anime, slice-of-life high school comedy and the over-the-top elements of Code Geass. If ...

While showing its age, Macross is still a decent old-school gem.

Being just as successful in bringing about the "real robot" genre of mecha titles for anime like Mobile Suit Gundam, Macross offered up its own unique spin on the genre with pop idols, an intergalactic war with an alien race and a love triangle. Focusing on the clash of humans ...

A dark, horrific and twisted look into humanity at its worst.

This was quite the fun and twisted little horror title. Requiem from the Darkness depicts an episodic series of feudal era horror stories depicting mysterious and brutal murders with an element of mystery as writer Momosuke and the trio of mysterious detectives known as the Ongyou are caught up in ...

While not perfect, Chaos;Head juggles enough quite well.

Chaos;Head was a series that juggled a multiple number of genres throughout its run involving sci-fi, psychological thriller, mystery, otaku focus, action and harem romance. Such a volatile mix, especially for a 12-episode series, had its potential to make this show a train wreck yet despite some glaring issues, this ...

While enjoyable, Pumpkin Scissors left too much dangling.

As a whole, Pumpkin Scissors was a decent series that I did want to like. The premise of a war-torn post-World War I country attempting to move on and the aftermath of said war brought up some interesting themes to explore such as questionable moral actions from the military, political ...

A touching, fun and manic mid-1990s romantic dramedy.

I had first heard of Kodocha over five years ago while I was still a college student and it was a series I wanted to see for quite some time. Before I comment on my thoughts of the series, I have to admit that it was quite the challenge for ...

A mixed bag of a gory sword-action title.

Here was a series I wasn't sure what to make heads or tails out of with my enjoyment. Shigurui goes for a feudal era setting in exploring the events that lead up to the upcoming fight seen at the start of the series between Seigen and Gennosuke. This series goes ...

A confusing and mixed package of an anime coming off Noitamina.

Oy voy, this series was unsure what to make of itself. At first glance, I thought the show was gonna try making itself into a walking homage to Ghibli titles considering the nods to Nausicaa and Laputa in the show's first episode with the opening music and Phyrne's air chase ...

A mixed bag of a post-apocalyptic anime drama.

Gilgamesh proved to be quite the mixed bag of a title with its fair share of both positives and negatives that stuck out for me with its plot setup of the conflict between factions over the fate of humanity. The show gives off enough of a gloomy mood with the ...

Evolution-R is a big improvement over Revolution.

Slayers Evolution-R is a definite improvement over Revolution. Continuing where the last season left off, Lina and her group are in search of the Hellmaster's Jar. The first four episodes start off as some comical filler where the group is accompanied by an animated suit of armor called Nama, who ...

Despite some major issues, Claymore's a decent dark drama.

This anime was reminding me in some ways of Berserk in the fact both explore a dark medieval world full of corruption, suffering and enough demons wrecking havoc with an anti-hero/ anti-heroine out for revenge against someone from their past while slaughtering said demons. Both also have a nice amount ...

More focus on the pairing in this season of Spice and Wolf.

The first season of Spice and Wolf was one of the few 2008 anime titles that I enjoyed. So seeing the second season to this series was an obvious choice for me this year and just like the previous season, Spice and Wolf II was definitely on my list of ...

Mercantilism and a wolf girl create something original.

With many of the newest titles from Japan I've come across, there have been dating sim spinoffs, series sequels, shows milking off the moe craze, or titles that reuse plot elements commonplace in its specific genre. Here in Spice and Wolf, there's a focus on medieval times with a mixed ...

Decent anthology of animated shorts if you're a Matrix fan.

The Animatrix is a series of nine animated shorts focused around settings and events influenced through the Wachowski Brothers's movie trilogy of The Matrix. Seeing as different animation studios did each of the animated shorts, it would be rather hard for me to rate the anthology as a whole. The ...

Oozes enough in style yet hardly has any substance.

 Well, this is a rather interesting take on sci-fi and action. Granted, the whole 'revenge' storyline has been done to death in countless other action titles I've seen, both in anime and American live-action films. But, I'll give this movie credit for trying to offer something different with its action. ...
