*EDIT - Since writing this review, a girl named Valeria visited my profile to tell me this movie was wasted on me. I bought it on DVD, Valeria. So I think the only thing that wasted here was my life. Joke's on you.*

... What.

Okay so basically this movie is kind of about children who can turn into wolves at will, but it's mostly about their mother, Hana. We have to see the financial and emotional struggles she goes through when her wolf/human husband fucking dies in a river while he's a wolf for no particular reason other than to make life difficult for Hana.

I'm sexually attracted to this anime.

Gankutsuou is a loose adaptation of Alexadre Dumas' The Count of Monte Cristo with a little sci-fi twist. In this anime, Albert, our sweet, naive, privileged protagonist, befriends a mysterious, strange, super secret man of the aristocracy (The Count) while travelling abroad with his friend Franz. Despite Franz's warnings that there may be more to the Count than meets the eye, Albert is drawn to the Count and the excitement that follows him, and so Albert invites him to visit Albert's home in Paris. What follows is a shit show of political intrigue within Paris' aristocracy, romance, espionage, embezzlement, engagements, read more

I've got to say, I'm kind of disappointed at how unknown this little gem is to the community. I picked up the first volume on a whim and I'm having a lot of trouble finding the second one. This is a series I reaaally want to own.

Milkyway Hitchhiking is about a special, vain little cat named Milkyway who has lovely star-patterned fur, thus her namesake. She's been around since, seemingly, the beginning of mankind, having had many masters and witnessed a myriad different little tales over the years. She "hitchhikes" from master to master, and sort of acts like a semi-omniscient observer over all the read more

I would like to preface this review by warning ya'll that this anime suffers from Ending in the Middle of the Manga Syndrome. If you've enjoyed an anime like Fruits Basket, Ouran Highschool Host Club, Soul Eater, Kimi Ni Todoke, etc. and felt a little uneasy by the inconclusive ending and then googled your uneasy feeling and discovered the manga is like 80 chapters ahead of where the anime left off - you're going to run into the same situation here. Clear your to-read list, because Princess Jellyfish is going to be a top-priority read for you once you're done this bite-sized series. Then again, read more

So, Steins;Gate. Probably the most blatant abuse of the semicolon ever borne out of Japan (because that particular offense is so ubiquitous, hardy har). Your friend Jeanie the otaku/weaboo has most likely recommended this to you at some point, and you've nodded your head inattentively and added it to the pile of shows that she's said will change your life and that you KNOW you're going to get to eventually (including but not limited to Neon Genesis, Cowboy Bebop, Akira, a Ghibli film, and like 2 shonen things).

Let me reaffirm Jeanie's gushing recommendation: you've got to got to GOT TO get to Steins;Gate.

Trigun (Anime) add (All reviews)
Lemme tell you why you should watch Trigun:
BOOM. Now go watch it.

I apologize, but I really have to indulge myself a wee bit when I partake in this writing-jane-doe-thinks-her-opinions-are-warranted fest thing.

Trigun is a title that will consistently appear on lists of top 90s anime, and with good reason! The soundtrack alone made me weak in the knees, and that was before I even had one eighth of an inkling as to what was going on. The show is set on an Old West themed, arid, harsh planet, and follows the story of Vash the Stampede (infamous gunslinger outlaw with a mysterious past) and the various read more

Chobits (Anime) add (All reviews)
I would never presume to write a review that one could consider to be a calumny of the Chobits brand, but I will admit this review will not be glowing.

Chobits follows the life of Hideki Motosuwa after he chances upon a discarded and beautiful amnesiac of a persecom (human computer, person computer, persecom? Incorrect spelling likely: urge to google = 0) in the trash one unlikely day. He dubs her Chi, as that's the only word she can say, and the pair embark on a slough of high jinks and hilarity, har har hoo ha.

Now, you may initially view this as a perfect set read more

Well, here we are. The anime industry's magnum opus, or one of them, at the very least. From what I understand, no one who watches this show is on the fence about it: you'll either love it, or you'll hate it. Before I sing my thousand praises for this lovely thing, there are a few things you need to be informed about before embarking on your mech future journey thing.

Without spoiling anything, you should know before going into this series that the original two episodes that aired as "the ending" are not an ending. They have absolutely nothing to do with the ending, and quite read more

I'm not a big Shoujo girl, and that became increasingly obvious the longer I watched this series.

I will say, several of the first episodes brought me to sappy weepy tears. The main character, Sawako, is a lonely girl whose attempts to make friends routinely fail due to her outwardly intimidating appearance. The tried and true "don't judge a book by its cover" will be shoved in your face for multiple episodes as you learn Sawako is actually very sweet, and she usually interprets the horrible treatment she receives from her peers as other people being cooler than her.

Those were the moments that really read more

I've heard and read nothing but good things about Code Geass, so when I started the series, I liked it because, quite frankly, I expected that I was going to like it. For a time, if you asked me if I was enjoying it, I would have answered "yes", simply because the premise is interesting, the dialogue is fairly well written, and the art style is unique.

Lelouch Vi Brittania starts off normal and goes insane with power - the power of Geass, to be precise. Don't ask me what Geass is, I can't define it and I'm already watching the second season (I'll clarify, read more
