For Street Fighter Fans and Kids Only

I’m pretty sure that Sakura Kusanago was originally intended to be a joke character created by the video game designers of “Street Fighter” video game franchise. But much like her predecessor Chun Li, her popularity was explosive and she became one of the fighting girl icons, typically representing the “cute ...

Knock Out Series

This is a new and underrated series as far as I can tell as I accidentally stumbled across its existence by total accident online and haven’t been able to find it at all in the stores. One-Punch Man nevertheless hits the ground running and was funny enough that I read ...

Mindless Action with Hot Girls

I read a few of the GN but I lost interest real quick. Black Lagoon is a series that relies on mindless action with little in the way of plots and lots of hot and insane girls wielding guns and other assorted weapons and some fan service as well.If John ...

Wonderfully Realistic Robot & Series

There have been any number of anime series that focuses on giant robots. Mazinger Z, Voltron, and Evangelion are a few that spring to mind. But never has there been an anime series that focuses on a bunch of office workers who save the world from evil monsters using a ...

Not So Heavenly

Unlike a lot of shojo series which I can’t stand, this one is decent. It doesn’t try for absurd romantic entanglements. The main character Hana—a female is forced (somewhat against her will) to become a member of her high school's field hockey team. Unlike the rest of her female classmates ...

Disappointing Anime-Mate

I am continually disappointed with the Japanese’s attempt to anime-mate Iron Man and this animated feature follows in the pathetic footsteps of Madhouse’s previous 2011 Iron Man series.As far as the animation goes, America could definitely learn a few things about CGI from Madhouse as visually, this is one of ...

A Japanese Version of Highlander

Macabre to the extreme.For some INSANE reason, a preview to the anime movie based on this series came at the beginning of the early Ranma 1/2 video tapes. It was an incredibly gory and shocking scene where this kid uses his finger and thrusts it into the eye of a ...

Short and Gentle Comedy

There's no dastardly villains, wacky aliens, demonic beasts, fierce ninjas, stoic samurai, or anything else in this series. There is no magical transforming girls, no martial art battles, nor complex soap opera storylines or anything of that ilk.Azumanga Daioh simply works because it’s normal. It’s about the lives of a ...

More Shoujo Than Action

I’ve long been a superhero fanatic and the X-Men are one of the more decent superhero teams out there. Their comic books on the other hand tends to go through ups and downs in my opinion. I was interested enough when this manga came out to read it and well, ...

Not To My Taste

I managed to sit through about two or so episodes of the anime but I couldn’t stand to watch anymore. The animation is of excellent quality, good artwork and backgrounds as well as the movements of the characters were highly realistic. Since I only watched a limited bit of this ...

PG-Rated Fight Club with Swords

This is a bit odd manga series that seems to be a weird fusion between Fight Club and Kill Bill only with a PG Rating that features an all-girl’s academy which is run by an incredibly rich and awfully unorthodox high school girl who gives the whole ‘when you got ...

Draws You In With Genuine Heart

Like I've mentioned before, most sports manga do not often appeal to me. However, every now and then, they managed to come up with something interesting and I found Whistle! to be interesting enough to catch my attention.The main character is a wannabe soccer player named Sho who is attending ...

Early Rumiko Takahashi Still Evolving

I pretty much started reading and watching this series simply because I was a major Ranma ½ fan and this was Rumiko Takahashi’s first major work, the one that made her rep as a manga writer and artist when she was like only twenty-one.That being said, I can see a ...

Blaxploitation Animation

One of the … odder addition to the anime series out there; Afro Samurai is an ancient samurai revenge flick, a blaxploitation movie, and a western that someone stuck into a mixer and hit puree.The result is a bizarre sludge of stuff ranging from black samurais and ninjas, cell phones, ...

Trying and Failing

I’ve only read the first few graphic novels but I didn’t like it.I have to say that as I was reading it, I couldn’t help but be struck by the strong similarities between this series and Naruto. I later learned that O-Parts Hunter was actually written and drawn by the ...
