Kara no Kyoukai: Epilogue (Anime) add
16 of 39 people found this review helpful
The Kara no Kyoukai anime film series may have ended nearly two years ago, but for some, the story was not quite over yet. People who were lucky enough to get their hands on the Blu-Ray box set of the series were not only treated to the seven films in crisp HD, but also received a new, never-before-seen "epilogue chapter" as an added bonus. The chapter is one that many fans of the original novels had hoped to see animated, and once they heard that their wish came true, they rejoiced with great anticipation. Not long ago, I've decided to revisit this mysterious world for read more

Uzumaki (Manga) add
75 of 90 people found this review helpful
Manga and anime do not scare me easily. Disturb me in some cases with grotesque imagery and copious amounts of gore, yes, but nothing that would constitute in giving me nightmares. I've found the medium as something that I would always gain enjoyment from no matter the genre. I would spend my time with a work, ponder on it for a while, and leave it at that. Rinse and repeat. That is, until I came across Junji Ito's Uzumaki.

The manga is brief, as it is only 19 chapters long with one extra story, but it drags the reader through so much. The manga's first two read more

Neko no Ongaeshi (Anime) add
3 of 4 people found this review helpful
Studio Ghibli. Mention this studio to any anime fan and they'll instantly think of either Hayao Miyazaki or rattle off any of his movies. In that list of movies, there will be a slim chance that a fan will mention The Cat Returns, one of Ghibli's more light-hearted efforts. I have to admit that I've avoided this title for a long time due to Miyazaki's lack of involvement with this project. This, however, is a decision that should be regretting at the moment because, surprisingly enough, I liked this film. I liked it a lot.

This movie's story couldn't be more straight-forward. It's a simple fantasy read more

Eve no Jikan (Movie) (Anime) add
9 of 20 people found this review helpful

The Time of Eve is a café hidden well beneath the towering skyscrapers of Japan in the near future. As the customer opens the door to the café, a bell rings signaling their arrival. The atmosphere is quiet and cozy save for a little girl running around and calling herself a cat. A couple cuddles with each other and whispers sweet nothings into each other's ears. A man is sitting on a couch reading a book. With a bright smile, a woman greets the customer and welcomes the customer into their second home. With an order, the customer asks for a coffee to be brought read more

Black★Rock Shooter (OVA) (Anime) add
48 of 93 people found this review helpful
A year ago, an OVA about huke's original character and ryo's song Black★Rock Shooter was announced to the Japanese public, and soon, the Western-speaking world via the Internet. The Vocaloid fandom rejoiced as the thought of something relating to their beloved voice synthesizers finally becoming an anime at last. The project quickly became one of the most anticipated anime of 2010. Was it worth the hype? Well...I'm just going to say it: no, not even close.

For those of you who aren't well-versed in the Vocaloid fandom and don't know what the hooplah is about, here's a brief history: Black★Rock Shooter started out as an original read more

Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann (Anime) add
4 of 12 people found this review helpful
Whether you like the genre or not, the mecha genre will forever be associated with the medium of anime, featuring revolutionary series such as the Gundam franchise and Neon Genesis Evangelion. Another anime that redefines the genre is 2007's Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. After putting this series off for two years, I finally managed to finish watching it, and it was well worth the wait.

The story of Gurren Lagann was inspired by the giant robot shows of long ago. Despite that, the show takes concepts and themes that avid fans of the genre know well and executes them in ways that make them seem fresh read more

Scrapped Princess (Anime) add
22 of 32 people found this review helpful
Scrapped Princess is an anime that's been overshadowed by many of the shows that have been released this past decade. Just because it's underrated doesn't mean that it's not good. In fact, it's quite the opposite.

The story of Scrapped Princess is very RPG-inspired; otaku gamers who are familiar with the genre will feel right at home with this anime. The first half of the series is light-hearted, dedicating its episodes to introducing the characters and establishing the main plot. The second half of the series is much darker, with plot twists and turns every so often, character read more
