I am a bit surprised that R.O.D. isn’t talked about that much at all. While it is a bit of an older series, I believe it actually holds up. Before I read the manga, I had watched part of the R.O.D OVA as a movie on Tunami so I was very confused when I started up reading it. I wondered if I had picked up a second season rather then the start of the series. Turns out that the OVA do not have anything to do with the manga except for following Yomiko and the basic elements.

Yomiko Readman is our main character and I fell read more

Soooooo... why is this a thing? No really, why is this a thing? Now to give you some context, I HATE Highschool Musical: Live Action. I was in the demographic that Disney was trying to cater too when it first came out but I was so oversaturated with it from friends and peers that I couldn’t even watch the first part of the show. I still hate it even now and all the milking Disney has done for this series. That said, I heard that it was only 10 pages long so I figured I was going to check it out and see if it read more

Throughout my time looking at Anime movies or any type of animation, once in a while I find something that actually makes me think a little too hard then it probably should. Muchibei is one of those shows. I think one of the reasons why this movie (that’s about 57 seconds long) is rated so poorly on many different anime sites is because people are looking at this as a movie and not as a art piece. So I’m going to take a page out of writing an artist critic instead of an actual movie review. Just a warning, what I’m going to touch base read more

As a person who grew up with the original came out, I really don’t see the reason for them to make a 3D version of the same movie. It has been a long time since I have seen the original myself but I do remember quite a bit of it.

From what I could tell, the personalities were basically on point to the original characters. Ash is always the headstrong and determined one always wanting to be the best, Misty is the token girl, Brock is the womanizer and caretaker.

In the original I don’t remember us diving deep into the mind of Mewtwo as read more

I never heard of this series before I found the Animation on Netflix just a little bit ago. Because of this, I may not know the whole story or if there is anything before it.

First we should talk about the characters. This is not that hard to talk about seeing that all the characters are pretty much stereotypes for video games. We have the wide eyed hero in Gran, the high ranking warrior in Katalina, the mysterious powerful damsel in distress in Lyria, and even our cute little mascot character in Vyrn. The other characters we meet kind of run in that sort of read more

First off, wow that is a really long title for an anime/manga. I have noticed this seems to of become a normal thing to make a whole sentence be your title for certain shows lately.

Let’s talk about the characters first, like how most of my reviews go. The first character I would like to address is Bell Cranel, our main character. He is a rather naïve, childlike boy who became an adventure after he lost his Grandfather. He dreams of becoming a hero and to impress the ‘Sword Princess’ who saved him on one of his first few dungeon expeditions. Now, even after watching read more

Pardon what I’m about to say… but what the hell did I just watch? No, seriously, what the hell did I just watch? It started out like a typical anime romantic comedy and then suddenly went into these strange chibi style mini segments with the school girls voiced by men. That was about 5 minutes of the first episode so what am I getting myself into?

The premise of this show (from what I gathered) was that it was going to try and parry as many shows as they could fit in a 12 minute episode as possible. They don’t really hold any punches. The original read more

So, anyone that knows me knows that I am really not normally into military heavy shows. I’ll watch them but they never were really my cup of tea. But, I do like history and learning so when I found a anime about girls in tanks… I thought that it was probably just going to be catering to the people who like girls and tanks to be really fair. I didn’t pick it up for the longest time because I just thought it wouldn’t be interesting at all to me and I would drop it within the first few episodes. Guess who is sort of eating read more

Well, If it’s not school when your alive, its school when your dead. This show is like ‘School Rumble’ meets ‘High School of the Dead’ with a little bit of ‘When They Cry’ mixed in, it’s just all over the place. Sadly, it doesn’t seem to be able to make up its mind on what it actually wants to be. It starts out acting like a video game, sometimes a school life drama, and sometimes a military fighting show. I don’t really know if it actually had very much structure to it but well… let’s get on with the review and you can see what read more

What happens when you mix retro games with anime school children? Well, in some ways, you show someone’s ideal childhood back when they were kids. Just kidding, this show isn’t really very ideal (not sure if anyone would really want to be in our main characters shoes most of the time), but it’s interesting to have that little nostalgia while also seeing a bit of a romance bloom. Now for those who don’t know, I have a passion for video games but not really a strong one in playing them. I’m a very casual gamer. The love I have for them is their graphics and read more
