Using the word “EPIC” to describe this show would be cutting it short. Very short.

“Gurren Lagann” is one of those shows that’s best just accepted instead of questioned. If you look for logic in a lot of events that happen here, you might as well be a pompous douche and write an essay on why time-travel in “Back to The Future” is illogical. Granted, it’s not a particularly clever show. In fact, it’s very stupid, but I can’t call it stupid for the simple truth that it knows what it is very well. So “ingenious” is the word I’ll use. Simply put, “Gurren Lagann” is read more

Admittedly, this was the first anime produced by Key animation that I had seen, so I didn’t have the perception of this being great. I thought I was in for some supernatural by-the-book anime tropes and an easily digestable, ultimately forgettable show, but instead what I got was something far greater: a wide smile on my face, and my insides hurting. “Angel Beats!” may not look it, but it’s easily one of the funniest anime shows I’ve ever seen. The general concept of the show is where the comedy gold comes in, as we learn each person on the Battlefront in their own “special” characteristics read more

People have been complaining that “Code Geass” is a crossover between “Death Note”, “Fullmetal Alchemist” and “Gundam”, and right there, I have yet to see why that’s a negative, because that sounds completely awesome.

“Code Geass” is one of those riveting shows that you can’t take your eyes away from because it sucks you in completely and leaves you on the edge of your seat each and every episode. This is mainly attributed to the plot, which is stitched together like a wicked puzzle that forms a rather beautiful image in the end. And I can’t use a more fitting metaphor for this show. While read more

1.21 gigawatts! Great Scott! “Steins;Gate” is a 2010 sci-fi anime directed by Takuya Sato and Hiroshi Hamasaki and tells the story of self-proclaimed mad scientist Rintaro Okabe, or otherwise known by his alias “Hououin Kyouma” (proceed with air guitar), as he one day accidentally invents a time machine with his microwave that can send text messages into the past. Together with his team, consisting of Mayuri Shiina, a young girl with an annoying catch phrase, Itaru Hashida, a fat otaku who’s actually a brilliant hacker, and the newest member of the lab, Kurisu Makise, who’s basically Okabe’s right-hand woman in science, they must uncover many read more

“Summer Wars” is a 2009 anime film directed by Mamoru Hosoda, the director of “The Girl Who Leapt Through Time” and “Digimon: The Movie”. It tells the tale of a shy, nerdy college student named Kenji, who works part-time as a programmer for a virtual interactive type of web-land known as Oz. One day, the most popular girl in college, Natsuki, asks him to come with her to her family home out in the countryside for the holidays. Kenji accepts, but little did he know he was being set up for a fake marriage, and has to play along. However, one night, Kenji is read more

Well, so it’s come down to this… “Rosario + Vampire” is an anime show directed by Takayuki Inagaki about, uh, well, gratuitous panty shots and full-blown harem mayhem. The story is straight-forward enough to actually make sense too: Tsukune Aono is your typical high school protagonist who plays the nice guy role way too well. One day, while heading to his mysterious new high school in the middle of what appears to be a dead forest/graveyard, he is run over on a bicycle by Moka Akashiya, a classmate of his. Immediately, these two seem to hit it off, until Tsukune discovers that Moka is actually read more

Air (Anime) add (All reviews)
I was looking forward to “Air”, having been a huge fan of “Clannad”, and while the fact that it was another Key/Kyoto powerhouse combination, the one thing that attracted me to this show is its sheer beauty. Yes, “Air” is host to some of the most jaw-droppingly breathtaking art style I’ve seen in a long time. Most of the shots comprise of wide, scenic views to capture glimpses of the beautifully animated sky, which is so expansive and gorgeous, that is becomes a character and presence itself throughout the course of the show, also tying into one of its major themes. These shots and backdrops read more
