Baki (Anime) add (All reviews)
Preliminary
I really love the Baki franchise so I guess a score of 7 seems pretty harsh but I've got good reason for it.

To start with I guess I'll go into the Art. The animation started off really bad, being a mix of poor computer animation and CGI. It gets better right away when they lose the cheap CG fight scenes, but the animation quality doesn't look much better than the first seasons despite them being released seventeen years ago.

As far as Sound is concerned, it's fine. I was maybe hoping for a slightly better soundtrack but it's not bad enough to warrant much criticism.

Finally I read more

Imagine a world in need of a chosen hero to go on an epic quest and defeat a great evil.

Maybe he was picked by a holy sword, part of an ancient prophecy or summoned to a different world to battle an evil Sorcerer, defeat a Demon Lord or rescue a princess.

Now imagine that there are many dimensions and alternate universes filled with worlds in need of heroes, and each of those chosen to be “The Hero” are connected across space and time by their own version of Reddit.

Rikudou (Manga) add (All reviews)
Preliminary
If you found Rikudou after reading a different boxing series you have probably realized from the synopsis that Rikudou is going to be dark.

And if you are now reading reviews, wondering whether or not you should read Rikudou, first consider what you're expecting from this series.

Are you looking for a boxing manga that has the same "Give it everything you've got" feeling like in Hajime no Ippo or maybe something like Ashita no Joe? If you are, then you need to understand that Rikudou is going to be a little bit different from them.

The first thing to understand about Rikudou is that read more

I've probably listened/watched to this a few dozen times since I heard it when I started Hunter X Hunter (2011) In my opinion it's the best ending theme HXH has had so far.

Not too many people write reviews for these types of things since it's pretty hard to say what you think of the story when it's an animation for a song.

All I can say is I enjoy the song, the art/animation is really nice so I actually watch it instead of listening to it while browsing through another tab. It's cool seeing the different characters running around and it makes you think read more

As for the dub, I would say it's not as bad as people will say it is.

When it came to minor supporting characters, particularly the unnamed unimportant, I've heard better in youtube fandubs. But when it came to the important and main characters, they did a pretty good job. Especially in Izayoi, the over powered, violence addicted bastard you can't help but love and Fan Favorite.

For those who have not seen it subbed and have no attachment or impression on the Japanese cast (And lets face it you probably don't speak Japanese and can't truly pick up on all the emotion in the character' voices) read more
