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

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)
***THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS***

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 the viewer 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 read more

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? Fortunately, I only lost a mere 29 minutes! Right? ...Right...? Well, unless of course, I count the prior Nora OVA as well. Then I lost close to an hour and a half of my time instead of "just" 29 minutes! Twinkle Nora Rock Me! is a catastrophe that sits in the same realm as other contemptible series like Garzey's Wing read more

Texhnolyze is a cyberpunk series that showcases humanity, both at its best as well as at its worst, oftentimes seamlessly blending the two together in the same moment. Taking place in the dreary underground city of Lux, saturated with a suffocating and oppressive atmosphere, the viewer is soon introduced to several major characters over the course of the first few episodes. Among them are a stoic young man who survives as an entertainment fighter, the resolute leader of a mafia-like organization known as The Organo, a girl with increasingly accurate precognitive abilities that allow her to catch glimpses of the future, an read more
