So after watching The Last: Naruto the Movie, I just thought I'd share my thoughts and overall feeling of the movie. [Slight/Minor spoilers ahead]

The story: Set two years after the Fourth Great Shinobi War, a new threat has arisen in the form of Toneri Otsutseki (descendant of Kaguya)

With the moon threatening to break apart and rain down upon the village of Konaha, Toneri needs the Byakugan to complete his Tenseigan (a legendary dōjutsu created from the thousands of Byakugan sealed by the Ōtsutsuki clan over the last one thousand years)

I was able to understand the story overall, but at times it felt all over the read more

"A faint clap of thunder, even if rain comes not. I will stay here, together with you"

There's something about Makoto Shinkai's work that draws me in, whether that be the simple story, with multiple layers or just that "boy has deep feelings for girl"situation. Regardless, Kotonoha no Niwa is another exceptional piece.

Kotonoha no Niwa follows the lives of Takao Akizuki and Yukari Yukino whose paths intertwine as they happen to meet each other in the Japanese Gardens, on one rainy day.

From here on, small details between one another begin to emerge, and Yukari learns from Takao that depsite everything else, he wants to be read more

Ah, Sword Art Online. One of the most anticipated animes of 2012, it has many people claiming that SAO is "The best anime of 2012" and is it? No. Let's explore the many reasons as to why SAO failed so badly.

Story - In the year 2022, a new type of technology called the Nerve Gear is released and allows fans of VRMMORPGS to enter the game like never before. Enter our main protagonist Kazuto Kirigaya a.k.a. Kirito.

That is just the basic plot, but from here on out the antagonist of this world Kayaba Akihiko entraps the players of SAO until they can clear all read more

Now let me start of by saying THIS IS NOT AN ANIME FOR EVERYONE! *minor spoilers included*

The story of Serial Experiments Lain is an interesting complex one to say the least. It starts of by a student commiting suicide saying she does not need to exist in this world anymore. The following day the students receive an email from the dead student and at first they think it is spam mail but that turns out not to be the case. Pretty much the whole show revolves around The Wired (or their version of a more advanced Internet) and how humans use it as a form read more

Now and Then, Here and There is an anime not to be taken lightly. This particular anime is one of the most impactful animes that I have ever seen.

This anime shows the harsh reality of war, it depicts the struggles of the people and the themes that ensue really add to the sense of realism. These themes include rape (not seen, but implied), mass genocide, betrayal, abuse, torture and so forth.

Story - The story starts off with a boy named Shu (think of him like a Naruto Uzumaki stereotype if you will...without all the ninja bravado about him, just the personality) a regular boy who read more

For those of you who don't know, Samurai Champloo is the successor to Cowboy Bebop. Also directed by Shinichirō Watanabe, Samurai Champloo takes place in the Edo Period, but with a modern twist...

Story - Like I said before, Samurai Champloo takes place in the Edo Period and involves three main characters: Fuu, Mugen and Jin. I'll go into more detail later on, but Fuu ends up recruiting Mugen and Jin, in order to find the 'Samurai who smells of Sunflowers'.

Art - The art style used is great to look at. It uses bright colours and representation of foliage and the background scenery, makes it read more

Oh Dragon Ball Z, how you bring back so many fond memories of my childhood. Anyway, let's begin.

Story - Even to this day, I can still remember the story and sagas very throughly. It is one that sticks with you. The story of Dragon Ball Z takes place on Earth and a Saiyan named Goku and the perilous adventures that he and his friends and family must endure to ensure the safety of planet Earth.

Art - Very crisp, sharp quality for its time. Still one of the better looking animes for the 1989-1996 timeline.

Sound - You will hear lots of screaming, explosions and read more

Death Note is one bloody epic anime, leaving you on the edge of your seat waiting to see what happens next. These are the animes, that want to keep me watching into the early hours of the morning. A dark anime, that blends really well.

Story - The basic storyline starts of like this. Light Yagami is a 17 year old boy but he is extremely intelligent for his age, so intelligent in fact that he has helped NPA (National Police Agency) solve multiple cases. Anyway, he does find his life boring but one day, he stumbled upon a diary (or book whatever you wanna call read more

Being the third title featuring the legendary super saiyan Broly, this one did not disappoint.

Story - The story takes place during the Buu Saga (but does not in any way, co-exist with the main plot of this particular saga) and shows the aftermath of what happened after the fight between Hercule and Android 18. After some of Hercule's pleading and screaming and Android 18's demanding of what she was promised, Hercule finally comes to an agreement, only if she helps Hercule out with a matter of his own. This is where the actual story happens here. During the trip to this mysterious island, Jaguar (long read more
