This review may contain vague spoilers but it is mostly spoiler free.

Scenario:
You need to write an extra test to give to the main character Bam. What would you think is the best test to give to him?

A: Give him a trial to do only by himself, thus strengthening his character and showing what he is capable of without others helping him?
B: Give him a trial to do mainly by himself, thus still showing what he can do and at the same time rounding out other characters?
C: Give him a trial to do nothing, where his only job is to stand still and have read more

Once again, Lupin takes the stage in easily my favorite Lupin film that isn't directed by Hayao Miyazaki (The Castle of Cagliostro).

Lupin the Third: The First (yes, it is a very confusing title) is a typical Lupin movie through and through with just a single new addition, it is in CGI. Not just any regular anime CGI, Hollywood level CGI. Disney/Dreamworks level CGI. The animation itself made this movie better than most of its Lupin counterparts, but the story has a couple of extra things that made this installment stand out among its peers (besides for the CGI).

First off, the story: Classic Lupin story, read more

Can CGI ruin a show? Yes. Does it here? Thank goodness no, at least not for me.

Ghost in the Shell is a lengthy franchise spanning over decades with at least four different art styles. However, while all of the previous art styles until now were in 2D animation, they decided that they should try a CGI approach. Many will skip over this season because of it, but if that is the only reason, then it is a huge mistake. Despite the animation, all of the characters remain the same and the story feels very similar to SAC previous seasons. So how does it match read more

Psycho Pass 3: First Inspector is a worthy conclusion to the third season. A lot of loose ends were resolved, although not all, and there was another development for the Sybil System. It isn't perfect and there was a lot more I wanted it to do but the movie focused on its own goals and accomplished them well.

It focuses entirely on the Bifrost organisation attacking the Public Safety Bureau and taking over their headquarters to either kill the governor or forcing her to retire. They break in slightly too easily to be believable in my opinion, but nevertheless, the officers need to find a way read more

Babylon (Anime) add (All reviews)
Babylon is like a plane crash. It takes off well, flies in the air for a nice while, but in the end it just couldn't stick the landing and it just flopped down in an explosion. What could go wrong for a show with such potential, lets find out.

Story:
Babylon is about a detective who is trying to catch a woman who can kill with her voice. That is it. Imagine Death Note flipped where the main focus is on L who is trying to catch Kira but we never get Kiras perspective. He is just a character who stays in the background. That is read more

1: You are being chased by a guy with a dagger through the streets. You call your friend but he doesn't pick up. What do you do?
A: Call the cops to come and help?
B: Call an adult to come and help?
Or C: Call your other friend who is in a wheelchair to come and help?
If your answer is C, then you will probably love this movie. If it isn't then you will probably enjoy watching this show to laugh at other dumb things the characters did.

2: You find your stabbed girlfriend on the streets in the arms of your best friend (not in that way, read more

The disastrous life of Saiki Kusuo is simply a very fun parody/gag anime which also manages to have its own unique story and its own personal charm. This will be a review of the whole Saiki series with the main focus on this six episode midquel/sequel.

Saiki is just one of those anime where even though it just repeats itself a lot with the same gags, the speed of it all just makes the comedic moments work. I love the comedy. It is similar to Gintamas in where the characters just bash each other. It is like a family or a tight knit read more

Violet Evergarden has been hyped to the max for the past year so there was a lot of anticipation built up for this show. This may have turned people away once it started because while audiences unfamiliar with the source material (like myself) were expecting something a little less slice of life and a little more action/war oriented, they were thrown off by the plot of the show being a little tamer than originally expected. I am not sure why they were expecting that since it was Kyoto Animation after all that animated this series and 99 percent of what they do is slice of read more

B: The Beginning had a lot of hype being the follow up ONA of Devilman Crybaby on netflix which was a smash hit. It had a lot to live up to and I was curious to see if netflix would start a trend of licensing good quality shows. I saw it the moment it aired and binged it in under six hours. So it obviously held my attention, but did it live up to the hype or did it crash and burn? Fortunately and unfortunately, neither.

Animation: B: The Beginning is an original anime produced by the master of CGI vehicles itself, Production I.G. (Ghost in read more

I was very cautious about starting Eureka Seven because I generally don't like original anime based in the futuristic apocalyptic setting with the inclusion of giant robots and the potential end of the world looming. This includes shows like neon genesis evangelion and guilty crown (there were giant robots in it and voids are even more ridiculous) just to name a few. Both shows that while enjoyable at rare instances, spent the majority of their running time focusing on minor details and never explaining in depth about anything that was going on behind the scenes, hoping that if it sounded vague enough, it could be read more
