One Outs (Anime) add
1 of 7 people found this review helpful
 
One Outs was a baseball manga written by Kaitani Shinobu. It was adapted into an anime by our old friends at Madhouse, who brought us such classics as Black Lagoon, Petshop of Horrors and Rideback. Unfortunately, they've also been behind some of the worst anime I've ever seen such as Highschool of the Dead and Devil Hunter Yohko. I'm honestly not predicting their best work this time around, although a lot of that is more to do with the subject matter than anything else. I am not a person who cares about sports in the slightest. So, let's look at One Outs and see if read more

Shinsekai yori (Anime) add
4 of 26 people found this review helpful
 
Shin Sekai Yori is an anime based on a novel written by Kishi Yusuke. The anime adaptation was handled by A-1 pictures. You may remember them as the studio behind Kuroshitsuji and AnoHana. This was actually requested as a “futuristic scenario done right” after I took a look at the mediocrity that was Blue Gender, but I've also been told that this series is just as bad, even using several of the same cliches. There's only one way to find out which is more correct and that's by taking a look.

Story:

Our tale opens in the far future. Our protagonist, Saki, has just advanced to read more

Muteki Kanban Musume (Anime) add
2 of 7 people found this review helpful
 
Muteki Kanban Musume is a comedic anime based on a manga written by Sadogawa Jun. The anime was released shortly after the last manga volume. The adaptation was handled by TMS, a studio which is probably best known for Lupin III or Detective Conan, but they've done much more than those. None of which I can recall reviewing. Let's take a look.

This is one of those comedic works without an over-arcing story. The basic setup is that our titular invincible delivery girl, Miki, is working as the poster girl of her family's ramen restaurant. Miki has to juggle her work with combat challenges and read more

Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu (Anime) add
9 of 37 people found this review helpful
 
Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu is a somewhat odd series, in anime terms. It began as a series of novels in the 80s, got adapted into a manga and, over the course of the late 80s to late 90s, it was turned into a 110 episode OVA. The odd part being that it was released as an OVA. For those of you who don't know, an OVA is a direct to video/ DVD release rather than one that runs on a televised network. Usually OVAs are pretty short, running somewhere from an episode to maybe a dozen. A hundred and ten episodes is virtually unheard of from read more

Slayers Return (Anime) add
0 of 10 people found this review helpful
 
Last August I took a look at Slayers Perfect. My final conclusion was that it was a fun little watch, albeit a bit rushed. Its final rating was a 7/10. This week I'm going to look at the second Slayers film, Slayers Return. There are actually five films in the franchise at this point, the last one of which came out in 2001. Is the second film an improvement over the first? Let's take a look and find out.

The film furthers the misadventures of Lina Inverse and Naga the Serpent. A young woman named Saleena finds them and requests their help to save her read more

Bubblegum Crisis (Anime) add
0 of 8 people found this review helpful
 
Bubblegum Crisis is a cyberpunk series from AIC, you may remember them from such titles as Sasameki Koto, Viper's Creed, OreImo and Battle Athletes. It's also one of those uncommon series where the anime is the original work rather than being based on a game, manga, light novel or something else. The series has had media based on it including video games, a western comic book from Dark Horse and even a tabletop RPG. So what is it about this OVA that enabled it to grow into a full blown franchise? Let's take a look and see.

Our story takes place in a not too distant read more

Zettai Bouei Leviathan (Anime) add
2 of 11 people found this review helpful
 
Zettai Bouei Leviathan is an anime series released virtually concurrently with the mobile game it was based on. The series was written by Zappa Go and Ide Yasunori and was created by Gonzo, which has been behind some really good stuff like Bakuretsu Tenshi and the Lunar games. It's also been behind some real rubbish like the Brave Story film and Gantz. The only way to find out where this one falls is to check it out.

Our story opens with a fairy named Syrup looking for strong people to join her Aquafall Defense force to protect the world from invading alien bug creatures. Naturally, read more

And we're back to Kara no Kyoukai this week. For those of you who missed or don't remember my reviews for the first three films, here's a quick recap. The first one was terrible. The story didn't make any sense, the characters were wooden, the horror elements were laughably bad and it was chock full of idiotic moments, such as the infamous “leave the comatose guy on the couch without bothering with any type of medical assistance because his body doesn't need to take in nutrients or anything” plot point. I normally wouldn't have delved into the series further, but it turns out that KnK read more

Byousoku 5 Centimeter (Anime) add
8 of 18 people found this review helpful
 
5 Centimetres per second is a film written, directed and produced by Shinkai Makoto. Based on a novel by Shinkai Makoto. At least we know who deserves the credit, positive or negative, for the quality or lack thereof. Let's take a look at 5 centimetres per second and see which it is.

I'll try to talk about the story without spoiling anything major, but it's not going to be easy. Basically, the narrative is cut into three time periods, separating it into three parts. The story opens with our protagonist, Takaki, receiving a letter from his best friend from elementary school, Akari, whom he hasn't read more

Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge (Anime) add
25 of 59 people found this review helpful
 
Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge is a rather recent anime based on a manga by Hikagi Tatsuhiko. The anime was handled by Studio Gokumi, a studio I only know from their work on A Channel. They don't really have many works yet since they're a pretty new studio, their first work wasn't even four years ago. This will be the second anime I've seen from them. Let's see how it compares to the first.

Our story opens with Kiri, our protagonist, going to the house of a rumoured spirit with long hair because... that's his fetish. I'm not even kidding. He goes because he has read more
