FMA's final bout is Milos no Seinaru Hoshi, a movie that should have been Ed and Al's final goodbye to all of their loyal fans. However, this films suffers from the lack of what made FMA one of the greatest anime in the history of anime, the Elrick brothers.

The only reason, and I repeat, the only reason I watched this movie was to say a final farewell to Ed, Al, Mustang, and Riza. These characters were the reason why I personally loved FMA and was so intrigued by it. This movie gave me everything except for these iconic characters. I mean, sure there were read more

Shingeki no Kyojin, also known as Attack on Titan, was supposed to be the next big thing, a shounen to match the height of Dragonball, Naruto, etc. In many ways it did do such a thing, being very enjoyable to watch, however, Shingeki no Kyojin also suffered various faults that made it very frustrating to watch.

Mainstream media has been on the survivor bandwagon for a couple of years now with The Walking Dead on TV and The Hunger Games on the big screen, so it was only a matter of time before we got an anime that was about human survivor. Attack on Titan read more

Sora no Otoshimono is probably the first anime comedy that made me laugh (and that's saying a lot). The characters and art style of this anime is top notch and will make everyone laugh

Probably the most disappointing aspect of Sora no Otoshimono is the story. There really isn't a main story. This anime is basically a big filler but a very funny filler. The last couple of episodes try to contribute to the main storyline but it is a bit rush and most people won't like that.

AIC is known for developing some of the best animations in the world and they don't disappoint here. read more

Ah Fullmetal Alchemist. The anime that officially got me started watching anime. Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is it's sequel (or is it) and fixes every flaw that it's prequel had.

There is a lot about FMA Brotherhood that makes me want to watch it. One if it is it's complex yet simple story. Two boys lose their bodies trying to bring back their mother so they try to get it back by studying alchemy. Easy, right. but there's so much more to FMA Brotherhood then just getting some bodies back. As this anime goes into more detail the viewer realizes everything in this anime works together read more

Suzuka (Manga) add (All reviews)
Suzuka is a manga by Kouji Seo which takes the best from sport and romance and binds them together. From the first chapter this manga had me hooked and will hook you too.

Yamato Akitsuki, has just moved from his home in the Hiroshima Prefecture to stay at his aunt's dormitory in Tokyo. Yamato falls in love with his new next-door neighbor, Suzuka Asahina, a girl from Yokohama who was scouted by a local high school because of her high jump athletic ability. These basic romance elements set up the story and the drama of Suzuka.

The artwork of Suzuka are what makes Kouji read more

When you have two rival clans that hate the living guts out of each other your bound to get a blood spilling manga, and that's exactly what Basilisk is. The Iga and Kouga clan are the two clans that take their differences to the battlefield in this exciting manga.

First of all I basically told you the story plots in my introduction. Other than the fact that these two clans fight to the death to see who would become the new shogun of Japan there's isn't much to the story. It sticks to this all the way untill the finish of the manga.

Art is read more

When I decided to watch this OVA I really wasn't expecting anything special. I decided to watch this just because I had nothing else to do on my Monday afternoon. Thank God I had nothing to do because this OVA was very much worth the 17 minutes I spended on it.

The story of the "Blind Alchemist" picks up with Ed and All deciding to go to an alchemist who is believed to have been able to do a transmutation of some sort. This story doesn't seem too exiting and maybe a couple people can make out the ending because of the "Blind Alchemist" part read more

Before watching this anime I thought to myself, "This is probably one of those harems ecchi shows where a lot of girls fall for the same guy." Well it was almost that.

Instead of a lot of girls there was only two, Ibuki Ikaruga and Ayame Ikaruga. They fall in love with Yoichi Karasuma. But unlike many harems this anime has a credible storyline. Unknowingly Ibuki has a fiance. After many years he has finally come to wed his belowed. That's basically the jist of it. Yoichi and the girls try to overcome obstacles and challenges that are thrown at them.

Black Lagoon is a action thriller that doesn't really have a storyline but does have enough action and character development to keep a person interested.

The story is the weakest point in Black Lagoon. To put it simply, there is no story. The Lagoon Company is a group of thugs that went into piracy because there isn't anything else in life that they accept as a job or that will accept them. So the Lagoon Company undertakes missions for various bosses. And that's just what every episode entails. It's either a continuation of the previous mission because it wasn't able to fit in with the first read more

Shikabane Hime: Aka is an anime that deals with the issues of death and life in an interesting manner. However, despite some of this anime's strengths, there were weaknesses littered throughout this series.

The main thing that the story gives is uniqueness. After being murdered, Makina Hoshimura turns into a "living corpse". Armed with dual sub-machine guns, she must kill 108 other corpses in order to gain entry into heaven. She is assisted in this task by Keisei Tagami, a Buddhist priest with links to an anti-corpse group known as the Kougun Cult. The setup of the storyline is rather unusual, and there have not been read more
