legend of legendary heroes disappointed me right outside the gate, with its ill-timed humour, gratuitous violence and unoriginal character constructs. legend of legendary heroes may have taken place at a fictional country at a fictional time, but of course we all know it's based on some form of European culture...because that's what most of their animes are based on. this show disappointed me because it had the potential to be so much better given the fact that the source material is a freakin novel. but it relied on so many anime cliches that it did more harm than good. not to mention the storytelling read more

Shikabane Hime is a barely decent anime that was released in 2 parts: AKA & KURO. For the purposes of convenience, my review is about both parts because its all really the same story and if you watch one part, you'll likely watch the other part as well. From the outset I had a problem with this series. starting with the title "SHIKABANE HlME" If it were just the anime title l'd be ok with it but it is a somewhat silly name for a zombie slayer. Why HIME? Is there a king, a queen, a prince? No there isn't it's just once again no read more

Shiki (Anime) add (All reviews)
Shiki is definitely one of those nice surprises you didn't expect would be so good, considering the level of uninspiring and unoriginal anime fluff we see on the shelves nowadays. Despite receiving rave reviews by so many people from all walks of life, I was still a total skeptic especially when it comes to people praising any modern anime. Mainly since there is very little modern anime has to offer... beyond titties, panty-shots, moe, toothy grinning shounen-types with big weapons or powers, and giant robots... miraculously all within some kind of school setting. If you've seen one, you can basically say you've read more

I've been feeling so disappointed in anime lately: lame plots, predictability, standard art styles, the loss of that uniquely Japanese flair to the art of storytelling and visual art. Lately it feels like no one is pushing the envelope any more and the truly great stories are coming fewer and farther in between. Luckily, I came across this series and I was so, so very happy! Kara no Kyokai is a collection of seemingly unrelated stories of varying lengths told in a not so sequential order, and even though they are told in this fashion, I would still consider this a series since the read more

INTRO: Broken Blade was a bit of a let down for me. I broke one of my own cardinal rules for watching anime; I had expectations. I saw the nice art, I saw that it was from I.G., and that it was an OAV, saw some good-looking characters and therefore launched right into the assumption that it HAD to be great! And maybe it is, but it certainly wasn't my cuppa! I was kinda bored throughout this series....and I'm not sure why Broken Blade isn't classed as a series because you can't watch any of them independently or out of sequence, that's enough for it read more

Another (Anime) add (All reviews)
Intro: Another is one of those truly horrific anime series that you'll regret setting your eyes upon. Not for the fact that it's classed as a “horror” series but for the reason it's truly the one most ridiculously implausible stories ever. If you are anything like me, a person who doesn't scare easily or a person well rooted in all that is sound and reasonable but capable of suspending logic for a moment of fiction. You won't like this series! I found nothing scary about dolls, nothing scary about bloody deaths and gore or crows, whatever. Is it sick and twisted? A BIG yes! read more

Hello Everyone! If you are a little sick and tired of the regular run-of-the-mill, clichéd anime shows out there, then boy do I have a gem of an anime to recommend to you guys! Toshokan Sensou or Library Wars is the perfect solution to break up that anime monotony. It's an intelligently written, 12 episode series that's got a small cast so you don’t have to wrack your brains trying to remember 42 million characters. It's got comedy, action, romance and even some political intrigue! It's done by Studio IG, the same people who animated the Ghost in the Shell series. So visually it's very read more

OMG this was an incredibly boring took but sheer force of will not to drop this title! But rest assured I wasn't sitting in front of the monitor the whole time. Such a waste with all the lovely bishounen, but I guess it goes to show; "you can't put lipstick on a pig" and having all the bishounen in the world isn't a guaranteed success. But seriously, I shouldn't have to be a classical music major or aficionado to appreciate this anime. If I could enjoy an anime about baseball [Big Windup] when I dislike sports or be completely entertained by a story about read more

Maybe I've said this before but I have this theory about [modern] anime. That it's become such a commodity now. These production companies just churn them out at such a fast pace they don't care too much about the actual quality. It's like McDonald's popping out Big Macs, the product is there, it's completed and the presentation certainly looks nice.......but there's no real value. Dragonaut would be such an example of this “anime fast food” phenomenon: it has a nice looking cast, decent artistic representation, it satisfies on a very superficial level with it's quick and easy character templates and fan-service, but there is no read more

What the hell y'all I have been bamboozled! Swindled! Gypped! If you've seen this show and have read my reviews or ever looked at my profile then you know what I'm about to say....this shit is INCOMPLETE! Yes, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls this series stops at thirteen episodes with no resolution, conclusion or closure and you are left with one thought in your head “WTF???”. I'm not going to spoil things for those who might still want to watch this title, but as far as I know there is no sequel, there is no OVA, there's probably a manga but who gives a read more
