The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (2009) (Anime)

This second season of Haruhi Suzumiya proved to be much weaker than its first season. Plotwise, the series fills in the gaps of what took place in the first season, such as the filming of Haruhi's movie and Kyon learning of Haruhi's past. Episode 1 was the strongest episode of ...

When They Cry - Higurashi (Anime)

Who knew mixing lolis and horror would be such a fun and disturbing mix? Higurashi effectively mixes elements of mystery, slice of life, and horror to create a world out of the town of Hinamizawa that makes you wonder just what the heck is going on. Looks are deceiving when ...

Crybaby Boy, Letter Girl (Episode)

...Visually speaking. There are a few points where if you pause you'll notice some wonkiness in the art. That's not too surprising with a shounen series, which will usually wind up being rather long and threfore having a smaller per-episode budget than a shorter show (or an OVA or movie). ...

BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad (Anime)

Here's an anime that makes good use of its raw edge and attitude when it comes to exploring real life, especially concerning those struggling to make it into the music industry. Nana and Full Moon wo Sagashite were other anime titles I've seen featuring characters struggling to make it into ...

Fire Dragon, Monkey, and Bull (Episode)

In the second episode, Lucy meets the Fairy Tail guild and joins with, as far as we can tell, zero research into her qualifications. Then again, she did just witness the guild's food-fight-turned-magic-brawl, so maybe there just wasn't any point in trying to test her.   Natsu runs off to try ...

My Friend (Episode)

Warning: this review may be slightly skewed by the fact that I have now read the first volume of the manga, so I'm a little bit further story-wise than just this episode.  That said, the story continues on strong, and I would be ery surprised if we didn't start seeing ...
