SS Review – Boogiepop Phantom (2019)
(Short and Sour)

Before I start, I have never seen the original anime so I’m going into this fresh. Boogiepop Phantom is about various different stories that take place at the same school with each one mainly concerning or involving Boogiepop in one way, shape or form. Each story is quite interesting and tends to involve supernatural elements in a pretty natural world, meaning the world is ordinary like the one you know but all these strange events and creatures keep appearing around this school.

Boogiepop is a very interesting idea…or at least that is what it likes to claim to be, read more

SS Review – Ultraman
(Short and Sour)

Okay let’s go, PLUS ULTRA…wait…wrong show…

First of all. I have no knowledge of Ultraman going into this, I have never seen any production to do with Ultraman whether it be anime or live-action. On the other hand I know of him and have a general idea of what his shows are like (I’ve watched a lot of Super Sentai and from what I heard they are similar).

The plot revolves around Ultraman’s son and him coming to terms with accepting the title of Ultraman…that’s all 13 episodes pretty much.

Unfortunately I started to lose interest half way though the series for one read more

Solanin (Manga) add (All reviews)
SS Review – Solanin
(Short and Sour)

This is a story about a struggling band and the relationship between the band members, with it mostly centering on the lives of the lead singer and his girlfriend.

Like I said the manga focuses on the relationships of the band members and how they cope with a certain incident. They formed their band in their school days and the name of the manga shares the same name as a song they made. Unfortunately I haven’t got much else to say regarding the story and characters as this is a short manga and I don’t want to spoil any of the read more

SS Review – Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin
(Short and Sour)

Before I start this review I would like to give my stance on Gundam, in other words where I am with the series and how familiar I am with it. I have next to no knowledge of this franchise…I have not watched anything Gundam related besides Gundam Build Fighters which I watched on a dare from a friend. But I don’t consider that to be anything really "main series" Gundam related seeing as it’s based solely on Gunpla which is model Gundams. With that knowledge I decided to watch this as it’s a prequel to the read more

SS Review – Mutafukaz
(Short and Sour)

It’s hard to keep up with this film…no seriously like there is never a dull moment. The film is constantly flowing and the brief respites feel needed as both I and the main characters are out of breath trying to keep up with all.

The stories about two young boys who regard themselves as the dregs of society, they see themselves as the lowest of the low. Even knowing this they try to survive to the best of their ability, but that does not go to plan when they are suddenly targeted by an unknown organisation. What could they possibly want read more

SS Review – Mob Psycho 100 II
(Short and Sour)

Wow…just wow…Bones you have outdone yourself.

Okay the story follows a boy who is a psychic (esper) and his master which is also a “psychic” (that’s a joke btw) as they take on cases of the supernatural kind. Mob (the protagonist) had trouble controlling his powers and decided to work for his master (Reigen) so that he can learn to control his psychic powers. Reigen is the kind of psychic you would probably see on the back of a magazine and think is rather shady (I wonder why?) and doesn’t really help Mob with his powers in the read more

SS Review – The Green Eyes
(Short and Sour)

Well…it seems I have the pleasure of finding this manga when no one else has, as well as the pleasure of being the first to review it. How unlucky are you right now :D

You’ll have to bear with me, it’s been a while since I’ve read this. Let’s dive right in. The story centre’s around a man who lives in the uncharted area of the amazon rain forest, a crew of archaeologists learn about a type of mutagen which was originally being transported via plane. Unfortunately that plane crashed while going over the amazon rain forest in an read more

SS Review – Coyote Ragtime Show
(Short and Sour)

This one was kind of a mixed bag, I don’t know what it was trying to achieve with the story but for one it was rather…boring…

So this is the story all about how I broke out prison 10 days before bail, went on a journey to find the giga-banks and scam the federation out of 10 billion francs.

Anyway…the story is about a space outlaw (known in the series as a coyote) called Mister, he is one of the most well-known coyote’s in space. He also runs a bar where his best friend’s daughter resides, she plays a key read more

SS Review – Great Detective Gordon (Meitantei Gordon)
(Short and Sour)

Woah…okay…what even is this?

This is a 2 minute short about a detective called Gordon as he solves the latest crime that’s been committed. It’s 2 minutes….so there’s not much to talk about, I’ll try my best to give you an idea of what it’s like.

Starts off with a murder, ends with the pose of legendary coolness. (I’m not even joking)

That’s the story (its 2 minutes, give me a break). Animation is terrible but has an interesting appeal to it and sound design is basically null.

This is basically an s***post in anime form parodying Detective Conan. If read more

Preliminary
SS Review – GeGeGe no Kitaro (2018) Part 1 [Episodes 1 to 50]
(Short and Sour)

I’m just going to refer to this series as Kitaro just to make things easier for me. Kitaro is a manga series from the 1960s by beloved author Shigeru Mizuki. His depictions of yokai are famous in Japan and statues of them are all over Japan too. Kirato has been adapted many times into anime and other media (even had a live-action film) the last anime outing was in 2008 with a film. I was completely in the dark about the series and had only watched the live-action films before, so read more
