Terra Formars (Anime) add
3 people found this review helpful
Terra Formars is an action, horror sci-fi piece. The manga began in 2011, written by Sasuga Yuu and drawn by Tachibana Kenichi. In 2014 we got a two episode OVA and a full thirteen episode series, both of which were handled by Liden Films. A studio that's done nothing I've seen, although I know their names because they're also working on the Berserk sequel that's scheduled to start airing in July. I'm not sure what to expect so let's just take a look at Terra Formars, both the prequel OVA & the TV series.

Story:

In the OVA, we see the ill-fated Bugs-2 mission to Mars where read more

Yuri Kuma Arashi (Anime) add
2 people found this review helpful
I was drawn to Yuri Kuma Arashi because I heard its basic premise and it's bizarre. Humans and bears were at war, the humans built a wall to keep peace, some bears sneak into a human school. That's a premise that's likely either going to be awesomely stupid & hilarious or just really stupid. The anime version was handled by Silver Link, and I'm hoping for the best thing I've seen from them. Which wouldn't be difficult given the other works of theirs that I've reviewed. It could be sub-par but not bad and still be the best I've seen from them. Now, the original read more

Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu (Anime) add
4 people found this review helpful
Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu is a historical Josei manga written by Kumota Haruko that began in 2010. Just this year, an anime adaptation aired, being brought to us by Studio Deen. You may recall them as the studio behind Read or Die, Gravitation, The law of Ueki, & Sakura Trick. Just to name some of their series I've looked at. How does this historical drama compare? Let's take a look and see.

Story:

We open our tale with a young man getting released from prison. He makes his way to the theatre and begs the Rakugo master, Yakumo, to make him his apprentice. Yakumo reluctantly accepts and read more

Boku dake ga Inai Machi (Anime) add
12 people found this review helpful
Boku Dake ga Inai Machi ran from 2012 to 2016 in its manga form from author Sanbe Kei. At the beginning of 2016, it also got an anime adaptation from A-i pictures. Which concluded in March. This is the same studio that gave us Kuroshitsuji, Anohana, Valkyria Chronicles, Uchuu Kyoudai, Sword Art Online & OreImo. For me, their track record has been extremely mixed. With some of those anime being strong, some being more middling and some, SAO & OreImo, being foetid piles of excrement. So, let's look at Boku Dake ga Inai Machi and see how it compares to the studio's other works.

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.

We pick up where the read more

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
