When I get to the core of the matter, personally, Aldnoah.Zero is a pretty big dissapointment. That, of course, is not to say that it is a BAD anime, no. It's just with all the hype, the awesome teasers and just the whole potential of the story... it was just good. Just good. Is that a bad thing? No. But I do weep at what it could have been.

Aldnoah.Zero plot is where a huge amount of the lost potential lies. It's classic, cool sci-fi - an interplantery war between Mars and Earth, the planet under siege by Mech-armed Martian Knights hiding in an asteroid belt read more

When it comes to how I score anime, a solid 10 simply means my enjoyment of the anime was perfect, even if it may or may not be technically perfect. However, if you were to ask me what was a true 10, what I would think of instantly is nothing less then The End of Evangelion, probably my favourite anime film and favourite films overall.

The final episode of Neon Genesis Evangelion were controversial to say the least, adopting a much less conventional style of storytelling that proved to pull a negative reaction to fans - and before I viewed End of Evangelion, I agreed with read more

One of the big criticisms of the first film in the Rebuild of Evangelion series, 1.0 or You (are) not Alone, was that it was ultimatly just a prettier version of the first eight episodes of the show. I'm a very big fan of the first film, it's what introduced me to Evangelion, but yes, it is just a (damn good, personally) retelling of the show's first third.

Evangelion 2.0, or You Can (Not) Advance, is a notable departure from the first film. This film whilst having, for the most part, has moments that very much feel like the television series, it very much stands read more

Tsumiki no Ie, or La Maison en Petits Cubes is a short film directed by Kunio Kato, and is one of the most unique, wonderful, and truly outstanding pieces of art and animation I have ever seen. The story of a man, who dives and explores his flooded home, reliving the important of his life. In only eleven minutes, we see the entire life of a man, and forge an emotional connection of a kind not seen in most...well, anything.

On a pure plot level, it's very unique, but what keeps the viewer watching is the fact you really are feeling the same emotions as the read more

Objectivley, Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusader, the third arc of the Jojo saga, is not a perfect anime. Monster of the week format, unusual art, somewhat silly plot. These are not, however, bad points, to one who is willing to accept something like Jojo. However, just like with it's predecessor, Stardust Crusaders is one of the best anime of the year.

Part 3: Stardust Crusaders focuses on Jotaro Kujo, the grandson of Jospeth Joestar, the main character of Part 2: Battle Tendency. Part 3 introduced the concept of stands - kind of like a spirit that fights for you. It is soon discovered that the read more

Picking up directly from The Egg of the King, the second part of the Golden Age Arc, The Battle of Doldrey notably ramps up the combat as compared to the first film, and also a serious amount of character development for the main three characters, most notably Guts and Casca. The CGI, however, still remains a mixed bag.

On the topic of the CGI, there isn't much more to be said as compared to my last review - the CGI is still a very much mixed bag. However, it seems to have improved compared to the last film - it looks much better compared to the read more

Berserk is an undeniable classic of both the manga and anime medium - but, you will soon see, I have seen neither the acclaimed long running manga, nor the 24 episode anime series. At the time of writing, here in Australia, the third film "The Golden Age Arc III: Advent" is about to be released, so to hype myself up, I'll write reviews of the first two films.

I'll begin with the elaphant in the room - the CGI which had recieved a very mixed to negative response from both audiences and critics. Having recently watched anime like Knights of Sidonia, the CGI in this, that read more

After a decidedly mixed adaption of Part 3, and a critically panned feature movie of Part 1, it took until 2012 until we got the definitive adaption of Araki's magnum opus; Jojo's Bizzare Adventure, the anime now famous for it huge, muscular men and overall crazy adventures.

Story:

The first 'season' of Jojo covers the first two arcs of Araki's manga; Part 1: Phantom Blood and Part 2: Battle Tendency. Phantom Blood features primarilly Jonathon Joestar, a wealthy astroicrat living with his father George Joestar, with the addition of Dio Brando, who has come to stay due to a promise from George. However, things take a decidedly read more

It was to my enormous delight to find that this One Piece movie was far more interesting and engaging then the first movie; instead of basic treasure hunting we get at least some form of a plot, along with hilarious visual gags and enemies who are actually a threat.

Of course, the story is pretty basic fare. Set some time after the Arlong Arc, The Merry Going, along with Nami, have been stolen, and the remnants of the Straw Hat Pirates, garbed only in wedding gear, are off to rescue them. While this seems hilarious on paper (and it is), they don't really continue the wedding read more

How do you continue something that is so perfectly wrapped up, so beautifully ended? Many anime have tried to make an 'epilouge' to their already perfectly ended series, and botched it. Suffice to say, Steins;Gate: Fuka Ryouiki no Deja vu is not one of these. In fact, it does it far better then any before.

Set some time after the events of the Steins;Gate OVA, we see the culmination of Okabe and Kurisu's relationship, carried on from the end of the series and the OVA, and in conjunction with this, the effects of time leaping finally begin to shown on Okabe.

The story is not as read more
