Silent Mobius is a mish-mash of a lot of different things. It has magic, cyborgs, aliens, hackers, and that�s just when you scratch the surface. Usually when an anime tries to mix this many things together the result is pretty poor, but in the case of Silent Mobius it�s a complete success. One of the first things I noticed when watching Silent Mobius was how familiar it all felt. You have your �science project gone wrong� doomsday scenario followed by what can only be described as hell on Earth, and then we pan out to about 30 years later where a special organization (the AMP) read more

Wha?? That was pretty much how I felt throughout the entirety of Steel Angel Kurumi Zero. Having watched all of the Steel Angel Kurumi series up until this point, I was expecting yet another nonsensical romantic comedy that may or may not be about girl on girl action, but instead I was treated to something much different. Steel Angel Kurumi Zero is a flat out romantic drama. Yes, that�s right, Steel Angel Kurumi Zero isn�t a comedy at all. Shocked? I know I was. Once it set in that Zero was a dramatic anime I was able to somewhat enjoy it, but when it was read more

Photon (Anime) add (All reviews)
Jeez, where can I begin? Photon is a lot of things. It's funny, it's cute, it's often times extremely perverted, and it's even pretty creepy here and there. The animes opening scene, for example, involves the beautiful Ms. Acqua running from the evil Papacharino while stripping off all of her cloths in order to ditch a tracking device. Not perverted enough for you? Well things get worse from there. To be honest, if it weren't for the perversion this might actually make for a great family series, but that's a whole other subject all together. The series is mostly about the young Photon Earth and read more

Gantz (Anime) add (All reviews)
NOTE: This review is intended to cover Gantz in its entirety.

Gantz is about as close as you�ll ever get to a love it or hate it anime. It�s littered with so much gore, profanity, nudity, and sex that it�ll either immediately turn you off or immediately glue your eyes to the screen. Being a person from the latter group I have to say I absolutely loved Gantz right from the start. Well, okay, not exactly right from the start. Gantz starts out in the life of Kei Kurono, an angst ridden teenager who has nothing better to do but think negatively to himself and get read more

Blue Gender: The Warrior is a retelling of the Blue Gender series with a few minor (and some major) adjustments. If you�re not willing or unable to sit through the entire 26 episodes of Blue Gender but still want to see what it�s all about then this movie would probably be the way to go, but that does come at a price. The Warrior is what you get when you try to cram a 26 episode series into a hour and a half long movie. A rushed piece of mediocrity that doesn�t leave much room for anything other than quick deaths and awkwardly paced character read more

Ah, post apocalyptic animes are so much fun. I love how they always manage to over-dramatize the end of the world, a story arc that you would think has enough drama on its own. Sarcasm aside, Blue Gender is a surprisingly deep sci-fi drama with a lot going for it. Before I get started on the actual review though, let me just point out that the content rating on this anime seems to always be wrong wherever I go, including on the box set. I bought the collectors box set at Best Buy and after checking the back for the content rating I see that read more

They're back, and they've returned to their old ways. Kurumi remains the faithful servant of Nakahito, doing anything and everything it takes to please him. Saki's still in love with her sister for all the wrong reasons, and Karinka is just as bratty as ever. Steel Angel Kurumi Encore is a direct continuation of where Steel Angel Kurumi leaves off, so it's obviously catered to people who watched and enjoyed Steel Angel Kurumi and who crave for their next fix of Steel Angel cuteness. With that said, you'll probably want to sit through the first season of Steel Angel Kurumi before jumping into Encore, but read more

Steel Angel Kurumi 2 is exactly what I thought Steel Angel Kurumi 1 was going to be--total comedic nonsense. When I say nonsense, it's not necessarily a bad thing, but it's not a flat out compliment either. This anime is a romantic comedy with exclusively female characters as leads, so you know what that means. Steel Angel Kurumi 2 takes everything we're left with after Steel Angel Kurumi 1 ends, and then proceeds to turn it into a lesbian comedy. Don't get me wrong, I like lesbians as much as the next guy, but when it involves girls who are barely high school age it read more

A demure, down on his luck character mysteriously activates a beautiful female cyborg and she becomes his faithful servant, but not without a few dark secrets for excess baggage. Sound familiar? I wouldn't doubt it. But is Steel Angel Kurumi just like all of the other robot maid comedies out there? Not quite. You see, Steel Angel Kurumi is actually a story about time travel, and the Steel Angels are much more than just super strong, super fast, super ditsy house maids--they're the only ones who can save the world from mass destruction. This interesting plot arc doesn't come until later in the series, and read more

Some of you might not know it, but I grew up at the movies. I spent the majority of my life going to popcorn flicks with friends and family. Besides horror flicks, it was always the action movies I couldn't get enough of. Die Hard, Demolition Man, Bad Boys, Lethal Weapon - all a big part of my childhood. Miami Guns manages to take the Hollywood action genre that I hold close to my heart and pay homage to it the best way it can, by making a total joke out of it. And you know what? I love it! Miami Guns starts out simple read more
