Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry (Anime) add
4 people found this review helpful
Rakudai kishi no Cavalry is an ongoing light novel series from Misora Riku. Near the end of last year an anime adaptation aired. It was handled by Nexus and Silver Link. Silver Link being the studio behind WataMote & Baka To Test. Yeah, that's not an auspicious sign. Then again, those are the only two series that they did the main work on that I've reviewed or even seen. Their studio probably has some really good stuff of their own. I know that some of the stuff they've done in-between animation for has been quite good. So, let's look at this thing and see if read more

Charlotte (Anime) add
4 people found this review helpful
Charlotte is an ongoing manga from Maeda Jun, the same writer as Angel Beats. He also did some work on Air, which was considerably less impressive. Last year, Charlotte got a thirteen episode anime adaptation from P.A. Works. The same studio behind both Angel Beats & Another. Knowing nothing else about the series, that's a couple of good signs. We've got a writer who's shown skill in another work and the same studio that worked with him on it. On the other hand, Penguindrum also had a writer and studio that had both shown great ability before and we all know how that turned out. read more

Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan 2 (Anime) add
5 people found this review helpful
Overall, this has been a positive year so far. Lots of really strong series, nothing too bad. Obviously, that had to change at some point. Which is why we find ourselves looking at the follow up to Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan, a terrible anime from Hal film maker about an angel who beats her love interest to death, brings him back to life and that's basically the big joke that we kept getting. I'm not looking forward to this one, but let's move in and see how many more gruesome domestic abuse scenes they can cram in and treat as humorous.

Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka?? (Anime) add
5 people found this review helpful
Gochuumon wa Usagi desu ka was a really enjoyable slice of life series with fun characters and strong comedic moments. I think that we're probably going to see a pretty comparable level of work with White Fox's second series of it, but first, let's briefly talk about the first series. Cocoa moved into a new area where she's staying at the Rabbit House Café and using sister to describe Chino, the younger girl who runs Rabbit House. The two of them have friends from two competitors and a friend who works with them and the five of them engage in hijinks. There's also a rabbit read more

The first series of Sunrise's Code Geass was really good. In the first series our protagonist, Lelouch Lamperouge, gained the power to give anyone a command that they had no choice but to obey. He decided to use this power to overthrow the Britannian empire. Japan, now called Area 11 and under Britannian control, became a battleground as he used their resistance as his army. Just when it looked like they might succeed, Lelouch learned that his sister, Nunnally, had been taken prisoner and left the battlefield. This quickly led to things going badly for the rebellion. Meanwhile, his best friend, Suzaku, found out that read more

Last July, I looked at Ginga Ojou-sama Densetsu Yuna, a decent quirky comedy with a lot of les-yay. Well, there's a sequel OVA. It's by the same people as the first, but was released a year later. The first one was released in late '95. This one released its first episode at the tail end of '96 and the last in May '97. It's three episodes. Did it really need that much time for release? What, did they release each episode as they finished it and then need time to start and finish working on the next? Hopefully, that extra time means that we're going read more

One Punch Man (Anime) add
90 people found this review helpful
One Punch Man was a fairly popular anime from the tail end of last year. It was based off of a webcomic by One, which has also been adapted into a manga. The anime came from Madhouse, which could be good or bad and there's no real way to ascertain which it is just because it has a lot of fans. After all, some of the worst anime I've seen have had pretty substantive fan bases. Then again, just last week I reviewed Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex: 2nd Gig, which was both popular and really good. So, let's take a look and read more

A couple years back I reviewed Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex, and it was fantastic with complex characters and compelling writing. It's one of the few things I've given a “10” rating. There's a sequel to the series, 2nd GIG, that came out not long after the first. So, will it be up to the same standard? Let's delve in and see.

Rurouni Kenshin is a fairly well known anime from the mid to late 90s. Studio Gallop began work on it, doing roughly two thirds of it and it was finished by Studio Deen. In spite of its popularity, I haven't seen it. What we're looking at today is an OVA from the tail end of the 90s by Studio Deen, Rurouni Kenshin: Meiji Kenkaku Romantan- Tsuiokuhen. Fortunately, it's a prequel. As such, no one can really complain that my lack of familiarity with the series proper means that I'm missing important details.

Our narrative opens with a group of people marching. You don't know where they're read more

Gangsta. (Anime) add
6 people found this review helpful
Gangsta, spelled that way because proper spelling wouldn't be extreme enough, is an ongoing manga created by Kohske that started in 2011. In 2015, Manglobe did an anime adaptation, finishing it slightly before the studio declared bankruptcy. This is their last work to be released right now. There's a film, Genocidal Organ, that was supposed to open shortly after this series ended but, given the situation, it's uncertain when it will open at this time. So, how is Gangsta as the Studio's last series, possibly ever?
