There are plenty of people who are aware with the 1995 animated movie, but hardly the same with the original manga published in 1989. It’s a shame since it does build its own world better and have more fleshed out characters. Even if most of it is for laughs.

Story:
You see, the original Ghost in the Shell Manga is the most lighthearted and more comedic than what this series has produced so far. Well except of those Tachikoma shorts. However, this still treats the issues like cyber-terrorists with most respect. They just read more

Story:
Ghost in the Shell was made by the legendary director Mamoru Oshii and it based on chapter 1,3,9 and 11 from the manga. It’s about hackers, brainwashing and the concept of blurring the line between human and machines. The future might be filled with these things, but a special unit called Section 9 will make sure that the future of Japan is secured.

Or was it Hong Kong based on the scenery?

Anyway. I’m going to tell you right from the bat, if you expect this to be mainly about action, then you read more

Story:
The story is not interesting and almost looks like less inspired version of other pocket monsters game anime in that genre. This may not be as disappointing if you came to this anime through the original game, which had a very flexible premise that could lead to many different designing principles. Seeing them play it safe and take the most standard can be rather insulting. Even by ignoring this, the anime does not represent the game well and gives out false impressions of some mechanics.

Art:
The design and art style is very similar read more

Note:
If you do not know nor seen either of Devilman and Cyborg 009, then you should look up the source material since this crossover will only give you a short introduction.

Not to mention that this crossover is special as it both series are hardly owned by the same company or person. The few things they do share is their message of war and that their authors where buddies and some times assistans on different projects.

Story:
This, unlike the OVA, is more serious toned and has less fun with the characters. Storywise, this has a more direct read more

Berserk (Anime) add (All reviews)
See the video version of this review here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nQAKC7b10f4

Short note: If you want to get started, don’t watch this anime. Read the manga or watch the movies/90’s Berserk beforehand and then consider if you want see this or not.


Story: This anime could had gotten a 7 or 8, if it were not for episode 1 and 3. The reason is that this anime choose to pick the forth arc as start while easily breeze through the two remaining arcs before that wasn’t the Golden Age. Story wise, both Black-swordsman and Lost Child Arc doesn’t evolve the main plot and serves as explaining the world, read more

In mid-80’s while the TV series was airing, Toei animation made their first special involving with the Jusitce Choujin called; Kinnikuman: Showdown! The Seven Justice Supermen vs. The Space Samurais. It’s basically Super Wrestlers in Space!

If you ever experience an ordinary Kinnikuman episode, then you should get very familiar with this one.

This special isn’t that special, it’s basically the length of three Kinnikuman shorts. The animation, the jokes and the music is like any other second season standards. There is one reference to Space Battleship Yamato, which is called Battleship Tomato. GET read more

For those who are not familiar, DD Hokuto No Ken was a manga that parodied the famous manly series called Hokuto No Ken or Fist of the North Star. Instead of having our character drawn manly and realistically, we have these small chibis to represent and contrast from what we know and love. And Instead of a post apocalypse, we had the modern world.


Even with drastic change of location a scenarios, both the manga and the two anime that came out was not that bad. They had funny moments and read more

In the early 2000, there was a spinoff manga of Devilman called Amon: The Darkside of Devilman that covered the events before Devilman and right after at the last chapters.


This OVA has less to do with the spinoff and more of a retelling of the last chapters of the source material and of the last chapters of Shin Devilman.


From the gecko, this OVA feels different from two previous one. It delves more into the psychological aspect by making Akira mentally inactive throughout the OVA, but keeps the gore and action read more

If the first ova has most about exposition and few action scenes, then this one is the opposite with plenty of action scenes and few exposition. Kind of.


Instead of explaining what the demons are, we see them now in action. The OVA in 1990 is made by the same company and has most of the cast from the previous OVA.

This OVA now follows Akira Fudo who has now become Devilman, a demon who fights demons hidden in society for sake of justice and humanity. As he gets more used read more
