If “I Choose You” was Star Wars Episode 7 (a incoherent mess of a nostalgia trip) then “The Power of Us” is absolutely Star Wars Episode 8 (a bold new direction)...if episode 8 was actually good.

Pokemon Movie 21 "The Power of Us" had no right being as great as it turned out to be. My impressions of the 20th film “I Choose You” almost made me write off Pokemon for good. Its attempt at trying to capitalize on the first generation while also fitting in another B plot into one film (as well at retconing a lot of what happened in the first TV series) read more

One week before this film would hit US theaters, I was just learning about it. I saw some artwork from the film and thought, “Huh a music anime film. Oh it is a Hibike side-story. Sounds interesting.” Three days before I’m set to get see the film, videos on YouTube start popping up for the film. One by Lock-kun and the other by Mother’s Basement. Both videos praise the film on all accounts with Lock-kun going as far to say it’s the greatest thing they’ve ever seen. Ok well now the bar is set wayyyyyyyyyyyyy high for this film. I arrive at the theater, sit read more

There are major spoilers in this review. Here is all you need to know about this film; it's trash.

This film does not warrant a full review. I went into it with an empty mind even though I had heard how lackluster it was. Well guess what; it isn't lackluster, it is horrid. Seriously if they wanted to make a slice of life film with great visuals (which are ruined by god awful character CG throughout the film), that would have been enjoyable. But mixing in "The Girl Who Leapt Through Time" mechanic (almost exactly), and taking scenes almost directly from "Your Name" (the beginning) read more

***There are spoilers hinted at in this review***

To preface this review know this, I love the TV series. It gets crapped on for reasons that usually deserve distaste (OP, know-it-all MC that happens to have a sister and a plethora of other females all lining up to take him). However, the TV series crafted a lot of really enjoyable experiences with its tight-knit cast and interesting plot scenarios.

With that out of the way, lets talk about this film.

This film is, in my honest opinion, a complete waste of time to watch unless you are the up-most die-hard of a fan. The film accomplishes a read more

***There will be spoilers in this review.***

For an upcoming project it was necessary for me to see this film. I had not seen anything Macross related before seeing this film but the promotional artwork for the film got me really excited. However after sitting through the two hour runtime, I am frustrated.

The beginning of this film was somewhere between great and amazing. The opening thirty or so minutes really pulled me. The opening concert, the fight outside the space ship, the rescue of the singer, the short bonding between the main characters, all of these moments were done exquisitely.

Another element of the film read more

***This review will hold off on any major spoilers within the film. I will however touch on material that is present in the first (Red, Blue, Yellow, ext games) and second generation content since this film has elements of those within it.***

I was pretty excited to get the chance to see this film on the big screen. It had one showing at my local Cinemark and no matter the audience (mostly kids), I wanted to see it. Big shout out to Fathom Events for continuously offering anime films in the United States.

I would describe myself as a closet Pokemon fan. There are bits and pieces read more

***This will be a pretty spoiler-free review. I'll hint at certain things but major plot reveals will remain unsaid.***

Fate/stay night: Heaven's Feel is another installment of the Fate/stay night visual novel series. The visual novel encompassed three parts, Fate, Unlimited Blade Works, and Heaven's Feel. As you can already see (looking up the series on MAL), we have already received adaptations of the first two routes of the game. This film adapts the beginning 8 or so hours of the Heaven's Feel route and I have to say, it's quite the package.

Going into this film I had knowledge of the material it was going to read more

Gamers! (Anime) add (All reviews)
When I first started watching Gamers!, I completely missed the point of the show. I wanted a show about...gamers doing gamer things (you know...hence the title of the show). After seeing so many online personalities praising the show as a well put together drama, I decided to give the show another show. And...I'm very glad that I did.

Story: 7/10

As I mentioned in my opening, I initially misunderstood what the show was trying to accomplish. Instead of being a show about gamers, it is a show that is fully about the main cast failing at life while also happening to play/talk about games here and there. read more

***THIS IS A SPOILER FREE REVIEW***

Classroom of the Elite is a curious one. I was so engrossed with its plot and characters early on. However at some point in the middle it started to feel really trite.

Story: 3.5/10

First and foremost the concept of the show is really good in my opinion. Students are placed into 4 different classes based of some tests at the beginning of the show. For there and onwards, they must work as a class to earn points. If your class earns enough points, you will dethrone the class above yours (D, C, B, and A). For this plot device to read more

This show is generic, guy-placed-into-another-world-who-happens-to-also-be-insanely-OP slock. But...

Story: 3.4/10

...it is strangely captivating. That does not save it from what I am about to dive into but it must be noted that there is a sort of captivating charm that surrounds this show.

Anyways, the show's plot is pretty barebones. Dude “accidentally” gets killed by God. God moves kid to another world with his smartphone and just happens to make him attuned to all the different types of magic in the show. Kid eventually meets 4 other traveling companions (all female of course) and they go on various adventures. That's the main jist of the plot. There are read more
