Himegoto, adaptation of the same name, is a short little mini series about traps. Really clean cut and dry; lots of traps to be more specific. The summer season was riddled with this theme and frankly it was bad. I am not 100% sure what the industry is attempting to do by banking on gender bender adaptations, but this was something they probably should have put on the shelf.

I won't lie; I like traps. The gender bender genre has become one of my favorite targets when a title is released, so naturally Himegoto was on the top of my list. The first problem I had read more

Ever since humans have taken their steps out of the mud, they have been the dominant species on this planet. We have advanced ourselves mentally and physically beyond imagination. However, at the same time we retain a child like nature for destruction and self preservation that will some day be our un-doing.

I have to admit this series was the biggest surprise, for it was a title I had no expectations for. I felt like Shinsekai Yori was a title that wouldn't leave much of an impression on me, but it ended up becoming an addiction. It may have tested me at times but in the read more

As a kid I remember picking up a lot of different games for systems. The first console I ever touched was a SNES and the first operating system I used was Windows 3.0. The first Action RPG game I ever played was in 1996 and a product of Blizzard North and Activision, you may know this game as Diablo. To this day Diablo is still one of my favorite games to play.

Sword Art Online to me was a mixed bag of emotions because it employed a melting pot of a number of negatives and positives. I've always been a huge fan of anything remotely considered read more

Admiral Ackbar is back to his shenanigans in "It's a Trap" part 2.

I'd like to think I'm overly fair with my ratings, a 5-10 scale just equates to a 1-5. Generally short series have the short end of the stick, they rake in nothing but dismal ratings and are average at best. Maidens are Falling for Me 2 has the same pitfalls being only 3 episodes long.

A lot of what I disliked in its prequel or parent story are essentially the same, lack of this and not enough of that.

The story didn't have enough build up time only being 3 episodes long and anything that read more

I never had much of an affinity for big breasts. I find myself to be more of an ass man. Hagure Yuusha no Estetica had both however.

I can't say I had high expectations for Hagure Yuusha no Estetica, it really falls flat on its face plot wise like most other series' in the ecchi genre. It was plagued by an abundance of fast selling nudity fan service.

I have to admit the exposition got off to a fast start. The concept of people crossing different dimensions and learning skills from other worlds isn't a new one. The cast centers around a school specifically made for read more

In the new millennium you often hear the bad side of life, talk of wars or rumors of wars. You possibly chat with a friend about natural disasters or an upcoming zombie apocalypse.

Never hoping the world comes to an end and that the religious nuts are wrong is wishful thinking. Personally I'd find a field of barley wheat and a good book on brewing then call it fair.

"Humanity Has Declined" threw me for numerous loops and I was pretty surprised with how good this turned out. I often find myself picking out titles that I am utterly disgusted with but this one was a good read more

Till death do you part?

A many handful of religions and beliefs in this world have people under different impressions of the dead. Some believe the dead come back to the world while others believe the dead stay amongst' us due to unjustified deaths or unfinished life works.

The love triangle of Natsuyuki Rendevous left me with a feeling somewhat disappointed, not because of the story, but because of slow progression and lack of fill.

The major problem I saw with the story was how the writers invested so much time into the Shimao and Hazuki body swaps. The first few episodes were fair, read more

I believe that you have separate generations of anime. Strictly speaking between what was popular then and what is popular now.

New review for something old, buckle down.

My trip down nostalgia lane isn't a fun one, anime wasn't always there for most of the time. School, work and other sorts were always in the way of me enjoying myself. Honestly Vandread was probably the first title I followed around 10 years ago, unlike a good portion of viewers who found themselves in English dubs on Cartoon Network. Anime was popularized worldwide strictly by action, more bang and then some.

Vandread is a title I feel that is read more

Viagra: The Animation.

Simple themes, little to no plot and flawless fan-service will always bring in an audience filled with hormone raging males, sometimes a few ladies.

I think the problem with the anime audience now a days is that a majority of anime titles are aimed at the male audience in one way or another. Rarely do we get to view material that is worth watching and doesn't fall between average and good. I use "Good" as more of an average term because its neither great, very good or amazing.

Regardless, why not give fan-service a try every now and then, its good for your boner.

Yuuki, the read more

In a plethora of environments you tend to see people who keep to themselves. People like this are assumed to be mysterious and generally avoided. Most others assume these loners have pent up rage or have some horrible past. On rare occasions others will recruit them for their close circles or these people will form extremely close bonds with a few individuals that they have almost nothing in common with.

Mysterious Girlfriend X was a title I was skeptical about simply because it involves bodily fluids. After finishing this I feel it is the most undervalued title of the spring 2012 season. A story of a read more
