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, ...

More of the same otaku focus with the passing of college years.

This second season to Genshiken had quite a bit that made it a bit different for me from the first season (much of it good, some bad) which has led me to think of this season as perhaps the best offered by Genshiken and which impressed me quite a bit. ...

Worthwhile for the parody comedy yet a mixed bag for drama.

As a parody comedy, Abenobashi excels. As a drama, it's a mixed bag. The series tries to pass itself off as a comedy-drama focused on Sasshi's escape from reality with Arumi in the various silly worlds of Abenobashi that are thought up from his otaku interests. The big problem with ...

Devil's Advocate Anime #6 pushed me to my limits.

Watching Lucky Star must have been the biggest test of tolerance for me since I was going through Texhnolyze from three years ago. I was warned that the series wasn't for everyone and in my case, I felt like I wanted to go nuts after going through each episode of ...

Get past the visuals and you have better plot buildup here.

Compared to the first series, there are some big differences you will notice as you start watching the series, clearly shown through the visuals as they were animated through a different studio this time around. The artwork for Il Teatrino is much simpler, lacking the detail and polish that the ...

A suspenseful and deep anthology of Japanese story adaptations.

This anthology of Japanese short stories did enough at grabbing my interest with both its intense storylines on both the emotional and suspenseful side, as well as the visual presentations conveyed for the themes of each title. Considering the separate stories for this series, I'll post my thoughts on each ...

Devil's Advocate Anime #4 is all about the violence and sex.

Watching Mnemosyne was kind of like watching softcore porn on Cinemax with blood, gore and torture tossed into the mix. However, the plot to Mnemosyne wasn't entirely an excuse for gore and sex as there was a decently put together plot to pay attention to throughout what some have mistakenly ...

Best ONA and perhaps unlicensed title I've seen!

Eve no Jikan was a title I overlooked between 2008 and 2009 as I was more fixated on watching older titles and recent TV titles from Japan as I hardly even knew of anime that were exclusively released in ONA format at the time except for either storybook game promotions ...
