"This anime might be another hidden gem!"
Such thoughts were bothering me while watching first episode of Licensed by Royal. It had all the elements that is necessary for a popular series. Unfortunately L/R didn't make any use of them and turned into something that is nonsensical.

Story: The biggest flaw of this anime is its plot. Starting episode 2 there are lots of plot-holes left. Story doesn't help characters to develop. There's hardly any intense in it. Only final episodes get a bit serious and dramatic, though it leaves an open ending which definitely was not an appropriate solution. Having said that, action scenes still read more

Imagine that you’re driving a car on one endless strip of pavement. It’s your favorite car, the one you’ve always dreamed of, and you’re cruising slowly with the beach’s beautiful waves glittering in the background. A silky-smooth jazz track eases into your ears from your speakers and you can feel the breeze, lulling yet slightly chilly, lazily slithering across your body. It’s in the middle of June and the sun, normally the personification of heat, reserves its fiery warmth for another day, leaving you to consume yourself in overwhelming bliss. I want you to forget the fear, stress, anger, or doubt you might be experiencing read more

Licensed by Royalty was never a show that really appealed to me. I saw the trailers on many Geneon DVDs over the years, and always went “meh so what”. Sure it had that cool factor, but I never figured it had much more then that going on. No one else seemed to watch the show, and those that did never seemed to have wonderful things to say about it. So I skipped over it, like I’m sure many of you did. Big mistake. But recently I needed to add a little to my order to get free shipping from Rightstuf, and well I took a read more

I randomed Licensed by Royal in a game to watch a series with some friends. I watched it in full and this is the review of my experience.

The story was bland. Plot didn't develop until around episode 7 if I remember correctly. It is as if the series started off with episodes written randomly which were then turned into some haphazard story line. Towards the end of the series the plot started to get more interesting, a lot of twists and turns were introduced but there was definitely nothing to write home about in this series as far as story goes.

The art was typical for read more

American Studios and Production Committees: Risks and Rewards

In the early-mid 2000s, US licensing companies were involved in numerous anime Production Committees. It didn't go so well for them. This year, several US licensors are trying their luck on Production Committees again. Will it go better this time?
