Come Lion Tamers, we'll try again to examine another in a long line of anime, trying to earn the viewers' hard earned dollars.

I speak of "Unlimited Fafnir"-2015

Firstly I want to speak a little about certain trends in anime, that all of us recognize when we have the notion forced upon us.

1). Most start in a high-school environment.
2). Most struggles are becoming increasingly supernatural
3). A inordinate number of these things involve a huge number of pretty little girls, with great big childlike eyes, and short skirts, that appear in their early teens, but have the buxom figure of a girl in their late teens, if at read more

Come Lion Tamers! I have been lucky enough to find one more anime I like!

"A Letter to Momo" - 2011, 2-Hrs.

This is a 2-hour movie of very high quality. For those of you who enjoy anime movies, you're in for a treat!

But first I want to talk about the production as a whole, and mention the production company. I'm amazed how many anime I've watched from this talented company.

'Production I.G.' has made dozens of high quality stories and has contributed to the production of other peoples' works as well. Just a few of the 297 Movies and Series they've been involved with:

Come, Lion Tamers! Rejoice!

I've found another one worth watching. "Akame Ga Kill!", is a whole lot of great stuff, but first a warning.

Akame Ga Kill! is not for younger viewers, by that I mean nobody should be watching this under the age of 16. This anime deals in notions that are extremely difficult. I mean every word. These notions will be brushed aside, and people will watch this because of the fight scenes. The politics, and meanings in what the authors wish to say; will be lost. Or worse, someone might take these notions to heart, in a situation where the wrong conclusions might be read more

Okay Lion Tamers. Long time until now, 'cause I finally found one I like!

'Ookami to Koushinryou II', also known as 'Spice and Wolf'; is a new take on the traveling duo story. At least in a mechanical sense.

Under the hood of this story is a true romance, involving two completely different species of creatures. The story even has dialog, from time to time to make that case.

And, as many will point out, there is a lot of dialog. In the anime's defense tho, I would much rather have a lot of good dialog, than one line of the wrong kind of dialog.

So let's take a read more

Okay, Lion Tamers. We try again to like an anime.

"Kemeko Deluxe!", is a huge disappointment.

The characters are worthless, and pointless (in that I mean they never make a point, and never get to a point).

Very few of the characters even know how to kiss there opposite gender (and I include almost all the girls) The only girl with the character strength to actually follow through on romantic feelings is the female villain (Vanilla Make Repairs [there is four or five of these kinds of names in the show, all loony and inappropriate])). She never gets the time, and Sanpeita Kobayashi is running away from her read more

Lion Tamers, Lion Tamers; gather round!

I take a look at another of many stories dealing with super powers, and school environments. This one with many interesting twists.

I speak of course, about "Absolute Duo".

As some of you know, I begin to tire of the almost absolute nature of Japanese authors, that believe all anime (or manga, for that matter) must begin with a high-school environment. But I'm not going to rant about that. For me, basic story is everything; so the startup environment becomes a small gripe, but a gripe nonetheless.

I have been very late in reviewing this anime, because firstly, I've been very busy writing read more

All right Lion Tamers. We look at another anime. This time, I found one I actually like.

It's called "Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka", what a mouthful! Translation is 'Dzun-ge would be wrong I'll seek a meeting to sound day', I swear that's the Google Translation.

There is a short name some use "DanMachi", don't ask me I have no idea. Google Translation is 'Dan-Machi'.

A lot of the time; most of us get caught up in the story, or the music, or the dialog, or the artwork, or the characters.

But then there is the forest, hiding in all those trees. And read more

Lion Tamers, Lion Tamers; let's put on on our Clive Beaty Safari Hat (we'll need it) and carry a chair and a whip. These accouterments will be necessary to prevent certain special effects from infecting and spoiling our cloths; and our self-respect.

The anime we will examine is "Oreshura", which I will use to name it in the future.

That long Japanese monster of a title, while accurate; doesn't say anything to anyone, except a die-hard english speaking Japanese language enthusiast. A true Japanese person would have trouble explaining what that monster of a title means, to anyone but another Japanese national.

I even tried to get a read more

Lion Tamers! We try again to like another harem anime.

I managed to marathon all 12 episodes in less than 2-days, which was fairly easy, because then I skipped most of the opening music, and closing music. All of which was really not very good. I even went against my own principles in marathoning the show, just to try to find good things about the show.

As some of you know, I dislike j-pop hi-speed rhythm music. While theses musical pieces were made to sound reminiscent of "Unbreakable Machine Doll' the end product was not anywhere near as memorable. The singer for the opening theme song, was read more
