Put me in Coach, I'm ready to play!

The massive popularity of Evangelion has more or less become the face of studio Gainax. So maybe it's not too surprising that it took me so long to give this one a try. Yet I'm still shocked that such a flawless, master class, Mecha series was created by not only ...

Epic quality

Beautiful, stylish, and exhilarating, are the words that climbed from the deepest depths of my throat to the tips of my gritted teeth, while watching Fate Zero, but intelligent, thoughtful, and yes, truly epic, also came to mind quite frequently. This show is an awesome fusion of fantasy mythos, shady ...

the "BUCH" has done better,

So I just finished up the first season of Aldnoah Zero and I gotta say, the BUCH has done better. This show has some decent action, fairly good animation, one too many uninteresting characters, a bold gutsy ending, and..... That's about it. Nothing terrible, or even bad really, just kind ...

A marvel of sights and sounds,

Satoshi Kon's first movie Perfect Blue, was also my first exposure to an adult level of animated narrative subtlety, and chilling realism. Watching it was as much of a mind expanding experience as as my first viewing of Akira, yet for different reasons. many people have compared Kon's filmmaking to ...

Blade and a bit shabby,

Blade and Soul delivers something that was a bit lacking this year for anime. It plays it's story totally straight, avoiding any forced humor or cheap fan-service, and at it's best feels Like an honest tale about the tragic consequences of vengeance. Set in an oriental fantasy realm, Blade and ...

a good movie made by a master,

Hayo Miyazaki you dreamer, you've given us some of the most beautiful Creative, and astounding films. "My Neighbor Totoro" was the first of his movies I saw growing up, as well as my first exposure to Japanese animation. I saw "Princess Mononoke" when I was 13 and it blew me ...

A precious odd ball

Bakemonogatari, is certainly an odd ride, but of course odd could mean many things when It comes to anime. I feel an otaku's definition of odd usually pertains to something along the lines Of "FLCL" or pretty much anything One Piece related. In some cases however I feel A series ...

Very, very, beautiful, and sometimes clever,

Well this has got to be by far one of the best looking anime shows I've seen in a while. Yet Witch Craft Works still felt a bit dry, for all of it's pretty confetti there's an overwhelming Feeling of convention. That feeling for me, comes courtesy of the show's ...

Key the forgotten classic

Here is a show that deserves every bit as much respect and remembrance as any other high concept anime from the 90's decade,such as Evangelion or Lain. Key is an unsung classic, somehow forgotten by the masses. what starts off feeling like a sci fi retelling of the classic fairy ...

a bloody,teeth gnashing, white knuckle, master piece,

Black Lagoon is that special breed of anime that dose not require any kind of anime fandom to enjoy, assuming of course you don't mind some extreme violence and a never ending supply of "F" bombs. but hey I'm the kind of guy who normally can't stand this kind of ...

Stand by Me crossed with X files

I love mystery, I love not getting the whole picture or all the pieces. In life we all learn perhaps a bit too well to conceptualize and categorize everything we otherwise don,t understand. I feel that is why art exist, to nurture that side of ourselves that still craves the ...

oh, so this is what its like to be a soap addict

Death Note is a class act all the way through and a great example of an anime that dose not need any giant robots, sword fights, or super sayins' to generate genuine suspense. The story is remarkably tense right from the start when a young man named Light comes across ...

the guy who loved this loved this film

I normally can't stand time travel story's because no matter how fantasy you get it never makes a lick of sense, you see time travel as a concept seems to imply that "time" is like a dam road you can ride back and forth on like an interstate highway. I ...

Whelcome to greatness

Welcome To The N.H.K. was my very first "slice of life" out of the anime genre pie (dose Tenchi count?) it is also one of my all time favorites. Here we have Satou Tatsuhiro a 22 year old very paranoid shut in who believes the whole dam world is a ...
