Highs: Engaging side characters; fascinating environment; crisp animation

Lows: Side characters play very little role; plot leaves many questions; confusing at times; in the end, nothing happens

Normally I am not one to take the time to watch a shounen-ai anime, although the animation and the plot intrigued me enough to give Loveless a chance. I was already taken in by the interesting setting; in which majority of the people in the world have cat ears on the tops of their heads. Seemed like something different and new.

Loveless starts off normally, with a young boy with a lot of angst and problems over his lost brother. The read more

Highs:
Fluent Animation; mind-blowing action; creates a great atmosphere; the style! the style!

Lows:
Loses some of its “pep” in the latter part

Another piece of work from GAINAX and the genius that is Anno Hideaki. Certainly, I knew what I would expect when dealing with GAINAX, but what I saw completely blew me away.

I was engulfed in magnificent world through the astounding colors, the music and spontaneous action on the screen. Re: Cutey Honey is a series the exudes style from all over its pores. The vibrant colors and animation are all so impressive, with all the eye candy going around; it wouldn’t be surprising if your retina read more

Highs: Smooth animation; stunning CGI
seamless plot continuation;
distinctive characters

Lows: Nothing too new; transition between comedy and
drama may lose some viewers; a not so spectacular ending

Review: As a direct sequel, Vandread: The Second Stage picks up exactly where the First Stage left off. Generally when dealing with a sequel we are left with an anime that tries too hard to better the original but in the end simply cannot compare. Thankfully, that is not the case as we have a powerful continuation that follows through with the strengths of its predecessor and takes it a step further to the next level.

Unlike other sequels, The Second read more

Highs:
Fantastic Cast of Characters; has good humor; fascinating Relationships

Lows:
Overused Themes; very predictable; unlikable lead character; a season too long

This one was quite the adventure. It took me a significant amount of time to complete this anime and for the most part I was fairly pleased. Spanning 76 Episodes, Marmalade Boy is your standard high school romance, with a twist. Our two main characters have two parents who switch spouses that force them to live together. This alone was an interesting concept.

There are many other strengths in this anime. For one is the wonderful cast in Marmalade Boy. Almost each and every one of the characters read more

Highs: Cool looking action scenes; improved animation; comedy works

Lows: ...Too much of it doesn't; Repetitive storyline; sub-plots that go nowhere; unbelievable amount of filler; useless side characters; elements make absolutely no sense; the reason for the most emotion from previous series is missing

Jubei-chan 2 – The Counter Attack of the Siberian Yagyu, henceforth to be known as Jubei-chan 2, is the continuation of the series that debuted back in 1999. Picking up where the first series left off, Jubei-chan 2 adds a few more interesting characters, but in the end turns out to be a carbon copy of the previous season. Jubei-chan is unsuccessful in read more

Highs: Fascinating look into problems of everyday life; strong emotion
and characters; can be rather funny; catchy opening theme.

Lows: Emotion lost during comedic moments; some useless filler;
missed opportunities fleshing out character relationships

NHK ni Youkuso! is a deep look into the human psyche. The characters all face personal problems ranging from mild to serious, whether they are financial, emotional or psychological. In read more

Highs: Hilarious, light-hearted fun; character interactions; surprisingly good plot
Lows: Romantic moments are out of place; thin characters; comedy not for all; unsatisfying conclusion; repetitive at times;

Review: Girls? Nudity? Fanservice? Check. If this is content you wholeheartedly enjoy, then you might as well stop reading this review right now. Yes, faithful reader, Inukami fulfills all of your dormant inner desires. But I digress, for the audience who want a little meat with their potatoes, you may continue reading. To be blunt; Inukami is hilarious. Maybe I have become so desensitized to risque comedy that I am no longer embarrassed to be caught watching it.

The character interactions read more
