Preliminary
The sixth season! Well, technically I guess this would be the seventh since this one was split into two different shows, but it's the same characters/story anyway.

If you haven't watched the first season of this show there's really no point in watching this one.

So if you were expecting this season to have a few digidestined and partner digimon that gradually get stronger throughout the show you were dead wrong. This entire show focuses more on the "Xros [Cross] Fusion" rather than the normal rankings of Digimon (Rookie>Champion>Ultimate>Mega [Dub]). There really are no rankings actually. They don't look at an enemy and panic because it's read more

Solid 8's all around (minus the art, which gets a 9 from me).

Story: Nurarihyon no Mago (or Mago for short since I never remember how to spell the Nurarihyon part) is the perfect example of a story that takes time to get really good. It begins with an introduction of our main protagonist, Rikuo Nura, who is a demon...or kinda. He's human, but 1/4 of him is part youkai (/ayakashi/demon). The beginning of the manga really tends to focus on his human life which sort of makes the series boring. I don't know about you, but when I read a series in WSJ, I read more

Bakuman is a pretty unique story. I've never read or heard of any other story like it.

Story: The story starts out in a weird way. It gives you the feeling that it's going to end up like another typical Shounen series (lame main character who mysteriously gets an interesting life with all kinds of fantasy and supernatural aspects), but that will change quickly. After a quick reference to the author's previous work (Death Note, ever heard of it? :P), we begin to learn the basis. Mashiro is just your average 9th grader, but when he accidentally leaves his notebook in school, he ends up read more

Goth (Manga) add (All reviews)
Goth - short, mystery, psychological, horror manga. The title alone sounds pretty intriguing.

Goth is a story about two students who are basically obsessed with death and murder cases. These students, Yoru Morino and Itsuki Kamiyama, don't initially talk to each other in school. After a brief encounter, they realize how much they have in common. Yoru usually ends up getting involved with some murderer and Kamiyama ends up either solving the case or making a fool of the criminal.

Art - I actually really liked the art. It was straight-forward and very easy to interpret, and I think that type of style was a read more

Blade of the Immortal. By first glance at the title, you'd think that the show would be pretty cool, but unfortunately after 1 episode you would be immensely disappointed.

Blade of the Immortal follows the story of a guy named Manji. Manji is a samurai who is known to have killed over 100 men and lived to tell the tale. To put it simply, he's immortal. In the beginning, a girl named Rin hires Manji as her bodyguard as she travels to get revenge on the people who killed her family. The overall basis of the story isn't all that bad, but everything else makes it read more

Psyren (Manga) add (All reviews)
Preliminary
Edited. The story really switched gears so I decided to basically re-write this review.

Story: The story begins with your average high school student who finds a calling card. The card is one of the rumored "Psyren" cards and supposedly people who find and use these cards vanish. Yes, towards the beginning of the series the story is kind of a mix between Gantz and Hunter x Hunter. Gantz in the sense that they teleport to strange worlds, fight bad guys/monsters, and return at random times. And HxH in the sense that they all have their own unique fighting techniques that they're naturally good at (like read more

Mushishi is the story of a Mushishi, or Mushi-Master, Ginko, as he travels around the world helping those who are having Mushi troubles. Mushi are unique beings that aren't plants, animals, nor human. All Mushi are different which can cause for quite an interesting story.

Story - Well, Mushishi is a bit different. It doesn't follow an actual plot, but instead has episodes that are unique to the overall basis of the story: a Mushi is causing trouble to someone or some village and the Mushishi, Ginko, tries to help whoever is in need of help. However, the stories are very interesting most of the time read more

Preliminary
Yu-Gi-Oh! GX is a manga generally like the anime. However, the main characters in the manga use a different deck (and IMO, a better deck) in the manga than their decks in the anime

Story - The story is pretty different from what you would expect. The manga generally focuses on the character's ability to see duel monster spirits, as well as having various duels in many different situations. Most of the cards are manga-exclusive and pretty cool. :P

Art - The art isn't bad at all. The way the monsters are drawn are pretty good.

Character - We get some decent background on a few of read more

Sekirei (Anime) add (All reviews)
Sekirei starts out with your typical pathetic male---couldn't get into college, no close friends, no girlfriend, or any hope at all for anything good to happen in the near future l...until that one fateful day. :P

Story - Pretty generic, yet unique at the same time if that makes any sense whatsoever. Like I said, you've got your typical "down in the dumps" male, Minato, who feels like all is lost after not making it into college, but then he meets this girl who instantly connects with him. The girl turns out to be what is called a Sekirei and now Minato is involved in a read more

Preliminary
I was excited to see a third season was out when I had finally caught up with both seasons, but 10 episodes into Princess no Rondo and I'm not impressed.

I wouldn't recommend watching this if you have not seen the 2 previous seasons, especially since the beginning of this season jumps right off from where Season 2 left off.

Story - The third season definitely focuses a lot on the fan service for LouiseXSaito fans. =/ Most of the beginning episodes of the season are on that alone, however, it gets rather repetitive. Saito gets into a sticky situation that turns into an "ecchi moment", read more
