Dream (Level 21)

Goal established. As a heads up, my next Ani-Crap poll will be starting up Friday. Look forward to voting on the next crappy anime offering you'd like me to suffer through.

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. ...

Looks like Slayers is starting to lose its luster for me.

It looks like Slayers is starting to lose a bit of its steam for me as I found both the comedy and plotting for it to be weaker than what I got out of the first three seasons. Much like Slayers Try, I found the show's humor to be hit ...

A fairly average romantic comedy for me.

I heard enough about this series being one of the original classic romantic comedies so I figured I would give the 2005 first TV season a try thanks to the Devil's Advocate Poll here on Anime Vice. To be perfectly honest, my thoughts of it are "meh" at most. The ...

Not perfect, but Gundam is a decent classic mecha anime!

I've been meaning to see this series for quite a while now considering many folks consider it one of the major mecha titles that brought about ongoing plot and character developments instead of a "monster of the day" approach. For the most part, Gundam does do a decent job at ...

A decent steampunk title, yet doesn't explore too deeply.

Last Exile makes unique use of a number of elements related to the genre of steampunk and 18 and 19 century lifestyles. Of course, some of you might be wondering what exactly I mean by steampunk. Steampunk is a genre that explores a future that could have been which features ...

Blends ballet and the darker side of fairy tales quite well.

Princess Tutu has an effective original premise in the blending of ballet and the dark side of fairy tales. Focused around Ahiru's struggles to get back the heart of Mythos as Princess Tutu while unaware of Drosselmeyer's manipulations, the mahou shoujo approach of Princess Tutu is quite different from other ...

Sometimes, dropping a series isn't the right choice.

I have to wonder why I was so jaded to have dropped this over a year ago. Seeing as I have been getting enough enjoyment out of Hourou Musuko, I decided to resume watch of Aoi Hana since Wandering Son was made by the same manga-ka. After completing the series ...

Weaker in humor, but has the best plot of Slayers thus far.

After seeing this third season of the Slayers franchise, I do have to admit this is a bit weaker than the first two TV seasons. But before I get to my issues with the series, I'll at least cover what I liked about it and for this season, it was ...

The absolute worst adaptation of a video game I've seen to date.

Where do I even begin with telling how much of a mess Tekken is? Many adaptations of video game titles tend to be mediocre to just out right horrible because the anime's either just being used to promote said series with little to no effort in creating a decent plot ...

Slayers Next continues delivering laughs for me!

Slayers Next continues the fun I got out of the the first season with its mix of action and comedy. The antics in this season are a little more over-the-top at points than the last season with episodes devoted to things such as a crazy magical version of tennis, going ...

Devil's Advocate Anime #7 was a better Macross intro for me.

This has only been my second exposure to an anime in the Macross franchise since seeing Do You Remember Love last year which I wouldn't call the best intro to Macross for me since the movie format makes plot and character developments too compressed for a grand plot such as ...

Horror, mystery and grey morality bundled for my 2010 favorite.

 This was quite the horrific little treat. Shiki started off as a mystery-suspense title for its first half slowly unraveling the true nature of the so-called "epidemic" killing off the town's population. The show drops a number of hints alluding to the exact nature of the threat faced in the ...

KyoAni redeem themselves with this movie of more SOS Brigade.

The second season of Haruhi Suzumiya got bashed enough for the ridiculously long length of its infamous "Endless Eight" episodes and had some folks wondering if KyoAni's big hit series has started to fizzle out. After watching through this movie adaptation to the Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya light novel, I'd ...

Devil's Advocate Anime #7's a fun fantasy/medieval action parody.

A decent action-comedy title for me to watch. Slayers more or less parodies medieval/ fantasy style plots found in stuff like the Dungeons and Dragons games. Major characters like Lina and Zelgadis tend to be aware of their status within the title at points and remarking on the enemies and ...

A great gateway drug anime for sci-fi/ cyberpunk fans.

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex was a title I never had a chance at seeing in its entirety during its run on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim block and being on a Netflix subscription, I decided to rent the series throughout this month. And for a sci-fi action title, ...
