After trawling through the database I came across a little known item called Neko Rahmen. Once reading about and also hearing that it was to be broadcast on Vuze I thought I'd give it a shot. However, I was ultimately left feeling somewhat disappointed.

Story: The anime essentially revolves around a cat which runs a ramen noodle restaurant and his only regular customer. Although at first it looked fairly promising, it almost inevitably became quite repetitive. Don't get me wrong, there were some episodes that were absolutely hilarious, but they were too few and far between. Let's just say variable to say the least.

Animation: Now this read more

Well, this is a tricky one to review as it's something that most people will have mixed feelings about as the original Kite was a very interesting work in its own right. But as you can see from the ratings I'm part of the contingent that liked it.

Story: First off I'll start by saying that I thought it was very interesting that they made a non-hentai sequel to a hentai-pigeonholed movie. Whilst the original focused on a gritty underworld story of corruption and violence (which featured nudity), Kite Liberator takes a completely different tact and focuses more on a kind of action-based sci-fi plot.

Egao (Anime) add (All reviews)
Again, another short from Shinkai Makoto.

First off this isn't really a proper "anime anime" really. It's actually simply a kind of music video for which the art was constructed by Shinkai-san :) . It's a very short special item so there isn't really much to review for it but it is a fairly entertaining item to simply add to your list.

Story: Well, it is basically as mentioned above and is about a women and her hamster.

Art and Sound: The music itself to which the anime is set is pretty decent. It to me sounds a bit like it could be an opening theme to a read more

A Kite (Anime) add (All reviews)
Story: Well, first things first. This isn't a Hentai in the 'traditional' sense. To call it so would be a misrepresentation of the movie. It's more of an action-packed drama which happens to feature nudity which actually fits with main plot. The synopsis pretty much sums it up and is essentially about a 'hit-girl' (as opposed to hitman).
For what is essentially and hour-long anime, it really packs a lot in there. Lots of bloody violence which is nicely balanced with the more emotional side of things (plus some nudity to add to the dimension of things). I felt the plot moved at a nice read more

Well, what can you say for an anime that lasts 1m 27s :S.
It's essentially a type of romantic thing that i suppose is fairly typical in theme to much of Shinkai's work. It's a sort of silent movie with two characters simply talking about their relationship. Everything within is essentially designed to be simplistic, from the b+w colouring to the absence of spoken dialogue which I think works well within its own context. For something so short I thought it was fairly enjoyable.

Well, there's not really much to talk about since it's only a 6 min special. Basically it's a story of two mini Persocoms trying to return Chi's underwear :P

It uses, as you would expect, the same kind of animations and sound effects from the series which is always nice. It just seems overall like an exaggerated bit of humour which could of been taken from the show and is overall pretty enjoyable.

If you're a fan of the show it's simply one of those item's that can just help round off and add to the whole Chobits experience (and plus you get to see the cuteness read more

[Since writing this review originally, the two specials of Death Note Rewrite have been merged, this review refers to the first episode: Genshisuru Kami]

For all those who've seen the main TV series, this special episode is essentially a summary of all the events leading up until the end of L's arc in the overall story.

Story (8): Nothing new really. It simply takes the events of the main TV series and compresses it into the space of a little over 2 hours. I gave it an eight simply because it is essentially the overall story line which I was already familiar with. At first, I was read more

Well, as the synopsis would imply, the story for Idolo occurs before the events of the ZOE game. If you've played any of the games you'll immediately recognise the main protagonists of the series, i.e that related to the development of Orbital Frames. Anyway on with the review:

Story (7/10): I gave the story a seven as I think it flows nicely but as you can imagine for a 55 min story, it does lack the breadth of a full movie. However, the story is believable and really gets into the emotions of the characters. It also lends some understanding to the background of Viola's read more
