***THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS***

Eyes tinged with a crimson hue as the assimilation phenomenon takes hold, the synchronization with the giant machine-the Fafner-commences. This red tone that enriches the iris of the eye when piloting the Fafner is a small, but pertinent feature that exemplifies the care and attention to detail mixed into the numerous installments of Fafner. A concoction brewed through many entries, each building off those before it to great effect, almost like a lab experiment, or to take it a step further, a puzzle that slowly forms a picture—the pieces come together to produce a reaction, each piece fitting cleanly in its designated read more

This is an extended version of the first episode of Soukyuu no Fafner: Dead Aggressor - Exodus so I'll keep this review short.

This episode is merely an introductory episode that begins setting up the characters and the conflict of this series. It firmly put me in the middle of the struggle, effectively managing to draw me in as it refused to let go. It thrilled and enticed me as it beckoned me to come along on a new journey.

It should be obvious and I shouldn't have to say it, but I will anyway: this is a sequel series and you should not watch read more

I bought this car in red.

I am certain it will be the best car that I will ever own.

Being the Headless Horseman I've typically traveled the Earth by horse, but when I saw this commercial, well, I decided it was time for a change. After all, it ain't the Middle Ages anymore, I need a new method of transportation to keep up with the times. As the years passed by I witnessed the advent of cars, trains, planes, all manner of transportation, and it was all for this moment.

At last the pinnacle of vehicular transportation has been achieved.

Gundam, thank you. Char Aznable, thank read more

Trigun (Anime) add (All reviews)
***THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS***

Trigun is a series that a lot of people love and a lot of people hate. Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right, ultimately this series is merely alright. Okay, hope you guys enjoyed this review.

Oh, you actually want me to explain why I believe this?

"Alrighty then." –Jim Carrey

What is Trigun? Trigun is a series that features the pacifistic protagonist, Vash the Stampede (The Humanoid Typhoon), on a quest to confront his brother, the genocidal madman Knives Millions. However, don't expect to be introduced to Knives until a flashback episode much later in the series (this isn't read more

Below is a review for Blue Gender that was written in roughly 1 hour, 53 minutes, 6 seconds, and 11 milliseconds.

Blue Gender is like some terrible Hollywood action film, both in terms of its content and the quality of that content. Instead of being roughly an hour and a half to two hours in length, it's twenty-six episodes. Instead of being filmed in reality, it's animated. It entertains, but it sure isn't very good. Blue Gender has lots of ideas; however, they are a hodgepodge of ideas that fail to unite in a cohesive way.

I like Ryousuke Takahashi. The man read more

Lying in the ocean is an island paradise; its inhabitants peacefully going about their lives. A cool breeze sweeps through, lightly caressing the body of one of the residents. Ominous music calmly drifts into the viewer's ear as the camera brushes across the tranquil scene hinting that something is "off." A voice heard by all suddenly rings out, clear as the azure sky on a bright summer day—

"Are you there?"

The voice entraps those who hear it; an ethereal feeling washes over the body; the residents are frozen in place.

The voice is gentle...
Inquisitive...
Tempting...

It seizes the very soul of the one who read more

Nora (Anime) add (All reviews)
Nora is a 1985 OVA that opens with a scene of colorfully flashing bright lights with the intent behind it being to damage your eyes. It then sets out to damage your brain as well with its ensuing story-line. Nora is a 56-minute journey of pure agony that will present us with an incredibly simpleminded story and dim-witted characters.

A few days ago I made a review of Nora's sequel OVA, Twinkle Nora Rock Me! and while I stated that the sequel possesses little to no story to speak of, its prior installment, Nora, does make an attempt at one—a really bad attempt that will read more

***THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS***

Twinkle Nora Rock Me! is an OVA from 1985 that is just shy of having a 30-minute run-time. That is something that those unfortunate enough to have viewed this OVA should be grateful for though! At least it wasn't 30 minutes, right? Yes, I am that desperate to find a positive to this experience that the only thing I can find to celebrate is the fact that at least it wasn't any longer than it was. Every minute I lost watching this abhorrent monstrosity is a minute that I will never get back. Fortunately, I only lost a mere 29 minutes! Unless, read more

Haibane, mysterious individuals (re)born from a cocoon. Each Haibane has a dream, a dream that will later be associated with the name they are given upon their birth. A girl, clothed in white, suddenly undergoes this mysterious phenomenon. Dreaming of falling through the sky, a black crow desperately pulling at the hem of her white clothes as she plummets, this young girl, later appropriately named Rakka ("Falling"), emerges from the womb of her serene and comforting cocoon. Others who had previously found themselves in a similar circumstance surround her, her kindred. Residents of a mystical world read more
