If you're looking for an action-packed, swords and sorcery anime fantasy filled with suspense, you won't find it here.

I won't pretend I know anything about the game this short series is adapted from, but I do know when an anime manages to capture the moment in what little time it has. Ten episodes with a runtime of fifteen minutes each doesn't seem like much, but if you don't like it, you haven't wasted much time at all.

Set at Mysteria Academy, Anne and Grea - both of whom are princesses of their own respective countries - develop an awkward relationship that blossoms over the course read more

Mahou Shoujo Elena contains just about every fetish in the book: tentacles, rape, yuri, incest, futanari...I’ll leave the rest to your imagination. It’s specifically made to pander to the otaku’s fantasy of young magical girls being raped and sexually tortured, so while it has some great fap material, there isn’t much else to make this H-title anything special.

STORY & CHARACTERS: Elena and Emiru are sisters who lost their parents at a very young age after the appearance of an alien species in a large spacecraft. The Zoid shows up in the girls’ home and begins to attack Emiru in her room - that’s read more

The idea of recruiting humans to a supernatural plane of existence is certainly nothing new. The Bleach manga achieved popularity by sending Ichigo into the world of Shinigami, and Yu Yu Hakusho made its mark when Yusuke and co. became spirit detectives. Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku, of course, takes up this concept in the form of magical girls.

I have not read the novels, but from my understanding, this short 12-episode series essentially amounts to one big prologue to several future arcs. I am writing this on the final Saturday of its airing, and there are no indications of a second season. Unless read more

Madoka: The Gathering

If there's one thing to be said about selector, it's that you can pretty much rip-off anything - and still get away with it. Selector Infected WIXOSS manages to do this to not one, but two popular (albeit completely different) brands to come up with its own story to tell.

First, there's the Madoka Magica comparisons. Anybody can play the WIXOSS card game, but only girls (called Selectors) are allowed to partake in battles to have their wishes fulfilled during the supernatural battles. Accompanied by another female LRIG inside a card, they can win countless matches and still never know when read more

It would seem that Strike Witches is at its best when it's not a television series. Although the near-absence of Eila and Sanya was criticized by the fanbase, Operation Victory Arrow is still a terrific lead-in to the Strike Witches Movie!

Humor me while I play Captain Obvious: following the events of Operation Mars at the end of Strike Witches 2, Operation Victory Arrow follows the events of all eleven members of the Strike Witches as they returned home, or traveled to different countries in an effort to further resist the Neuroi. I'll be breaking down each episode, but if you want, you're more read more

WataMote sure took me back to my own high school days, but not necessarily in a positive light. And because of that, I simply could not stop watching this short and bittersweet series. Before I continue, here's some basic personal info about myself: 26, M, white, straight. Now, how in the world could a guy like me relate to a perverted Japanese school girl like Tomoko?

Well, we both like anime...but that's not quite good enough. Here are some key traits:

1. Frequently sitting alone. Example: After summer break, Tomoko loses her seat during lunch, and winds up eating alone daily near read more

The quality of a movie, television series, or book is always proportional to the quality of its characters. Regardless of your feelings on Strike Witches, the same rule applies here. I don’t make it a secret that I’m a monster fan; bias is inevitable. However, let me at least let give you a small glimpse of Strike Witches through my eyes, and if I’ve changed even just one person’s opinion, I’ve succeeded in this review.

Hitting on that first note about characters, what I liked most about the movie were the contrasting differences between the two main Witches. While Yoshika easily takes read more

"What would you be willing to risk your life for?"

This is the general question that all Puella Magi are asked before forming a contract with Kyuubey. Even with every mystical element involved (from witches to time-travel) you could, in a sense, interpret this show as a way for adolescent girls to experience the difficult choices, stress - and eventually the insanity - forced onto younger men as they go through the military. What eventually happens to the Puella Magi if they aren't killed by the witches they fight is a grim destiny that mirrors the reality that real soldiers go read more

TTGL, as I like to call it, is a show that will captivate you with inspiring messages. The best part is that it does all of that and more without holding back; by that I mean it looks exactly how a true anime should look: giant robots, over-the-top animation, a little sex appeal, and battles on a galactic scale.

The three major characters - Kamina, Simon, and Yoko Littner - are some of the best that anime will ever see. For Yoko, it's not just the aforementioned sex appeal. And for Kamina, it's not just his incredible masculinity. read more

Hidan no Aria is, for the lack of a better term, a complete letdown for fans. There were high hopes for this series coming off a popular manga, which explains the ever popular "queen of tsunderes" Rie Kugimiya starring as Aria H. Kanzaki. But in the end, it wouldn't have mattered if the entire cast were filled with all-stars.

Sexual humor with a shallow plot led by annoying characters a good action-comedy anime does not make. Unfortunately, this is exactly what we get out of this show, and while we weren't exactly expecting a masterpiece here, the production team could have at least read more
