Alright everybody, prepare to read the only review of this manga you're ever going to find. Why's that? Because I'm confident that I may be the only one who actively reads it in the Western Hemisphere. Hopefully that'll now change with the advent of the anime.

Also, if you're looking, no scanlations exist for this, so go out and buy the Dark Horse releases if you want to read it in English (highly recommended)

The author is Yasuhiro Nightow, and that's where we're gonna start. Nightow is one of very few manga authors who is almost completely incomparable in style and content in his craft. Nightow read more

Cross Ange is a travesty. It's a horrible, stupid, illogical trainwreck of a show with shoddy production values that relies almost entirely on pandering to the lowest forms of human life and waving shallow moments of shock value all over the screen. The series has a narcissistic sense of self-awareness, and in each episode you can nearly hear a subtle narration by the director and other Sunrise execs laughing at how much of a moron you are for watching this garbage that they've put in front of you.

"Ha, I bet those glass-eyed imbeciles are getting bored, let's put in another lesbian threesome."

"No, not yet. Only read more

Kill la Kill Special (Anime) add
9 of 34 people found this review helpful
 
This is the final episode of Kill la Kill. It's not really a "special" or a side-story, but a rather necessary part of the series to tie up the whole story.

I'm going to miss this show, it was a lot of fun. Genuine, good fun with a truly memorable cast and a over-the-top, jankily-animated style, and we probably won't see anything on-par with it for a long time. The final episode's audiovisual appeal is on-par with the best of series, with fluid action, cheap-but-hilarious animation shortcuts in between, and a bit of time with every good track from the stellar OST.

Even after the final battle read more

Okay, gather around and hear the song of my people. The two top reviews for this are a 5 and a 6? What in this show is a 5 or 6? Not a single damn thing.

"Musical Bitches Symphogear", as it's named on my PC, was one of my most complex human-anime relationships. On one hand, it was helmed by the man who brought me Wild Arms, my favorite RPG series of all time, and some of the people behind Oban Star Racers, one of my all time favorite pieces of animation. On the other hand, it was a hastily-made, awkward and janky show that had read more

Sakasama no Patema (Anime) add
11 of 53 people found this review helpful
 
PATEMA INVERTED... is okay. It's certainly not that good, but not downright bad either. It's basically a whole movie based on a gimmicky premise where a boy meets a girl, except that gravity works the wrong way for the girl, so she's under constant threat of /falling into the sky/. Stretch that sentence out for 90 minutes and you have this movie.

Let's break it down.

THE STORY is a very basic anime boy meets anime girl story. Gravity works the wrong way for the girl. Boy lives in dystopian police state where that's an evil, reviled thing. Bad dudes hunt girl, boy goes after girl, yadda read more

What the fuck were they thinking when they made this?
I can't ask a more direct question than that.

Digimon Hunters is very easily the worst Digimon series, it's pretty much bile. It succeeds in nothing but destroying amazing potential, wasting a good cast of characters, tarnishing a franchise and having a catchy opening song. Never again will I ever be so excited for a series only to end up this disappointed. Let me walk you through this so you don't have to:

Digimon Hunters takes place a year after the ending of Xros Wars. Bugramon is dead, all the Digimon are back in their own world, and read more

Aquarion Evol (Anime) add

Aquarion EVOL. It's been 12,000 quarter-days since the first series came out back in 2005 and now it's been reincarnated for the new era. First, some history:

To my knowledge, not many people liked Genesis of Aquarion. It was an overly melodramatic, awkward, very episodic and somewhat girly mecha series where the robots were essentially powered by orgasms(You read that right) and it had to compete in an era where good mecha anime was still a thing. It was a show that couldn't take itself seriously even when it was trying to take itself seriously. Audience response was mostly apathetic, but people loved the theme song read more

Geneshaft (Anime) add
31 of 57 people found this review helpful
 
Alright, so I just watched Geneshaft for the first time since TechTV's existed and now I'm going to vouch for two things:

a. This show is good. Not mind-blowing, but good.
b. No one on MAL who's reviewed this series has actually watched it, or their reviews were written from memory months or years after half-watching the original run on TV.

Geneshaft is a character story about a bunch of people raised in a dystopian future where genetics play a huge role, human lives are cheap and the species is more important than the individual. It's a series that identified what it wanted to do exactly, and executed read more

Sacred Seven (Anime) add

Okay kids, time for some more real talk. Scryed came out 10 years ago, that's a whole damn decade. That show was a masterpiece, it took every aspect of its genre and executed them perfectly. The story was straight to the point and didn't have any bullshit to weigh it down. No titties, no robots, no girlymen, no school setting, no overelaborate art direction, no holes, no filler, no extraneous characters, etc; it was a super power fighting show about people who beat the shit out of things and were proud to have that privilege. It was truly Sunrise's greatest work of its kind.

That's one read more

Trinity Blood (Anime) add
31 of 72 people found this review helpful
 
"Trinity Blood" is basically the most esoteric term for "shitty plagiarism" ever concocted. It's the name given to a series about a bipolar four-eyed immortal space vampire and his gaggle of irrelevant friends on their quest to get to the end of a story where the author was killed before he had a chance to end it. Why was he killed? Hellsing and Trigun were raking in lots of money at the time and their authors caught wind of some douche stealing their ideas and peddling it to stupid girls by plastering shoujo art all over them. In this writing I will explain every reason read more
