Leiji, Leiji, Leiji… How many times can you rehash the same stories and tropes over and over and when will I actually condemn you for it? I’e stated before that I’ll watch anything with that man’s name attached to it and really wanted to watch it when I first heard about it last millennium. And as Leijiverse stuff goes it’s a base line. While the animation is fluid and smooth, the character designs are of Leiji’s era (meaning old) The stories are by the book, which is okay, but Manabu Yuki’s young man pursuing the only dream he ever had thing has been done in read more

This one I’ll keep brief. What I liked about this show is it’s co ed, not to a Bleach degree but more so than Naruto. I liked the bonding between Benio and Rokuro, how they had to work hard to understand each other and ultimately work together. I even liked the idea of their arranged marriage. I liked the character designs (more on that in a minute) and most of the character interactions. I liked the action scenes to a point (more on that later). This show worked…
For about 20 episodes. Then they introduce the 12 most powerful exorcists alive today, without giving any reason read more

Why did I love Sakura Quest so much? For starters it’s very relatable. Being an adult that floundered through life I can relate to our heroines trying to find their place in a world that believes they should’ve already found it. Who am I & what do I want are profound questions each must ask his/her soul and this show understands that it’s okay not to have those answers. This is in stark contrast to say a shonen epic where the main character has a clearly defined goal from day one and every step on their journey is a step towards said goal. The second read more

I read a review in a magazine (OtakuUSA) that sparked my interest in this series and it delivered! I was that kid who was never afraid to talk about any dirty, deviant or perverse topic, so I really related to this series. But it's about more than that. It's about how we share the basic of human existence despite our personalities and differences. The show then introduces the supporting cast that play so well with their unique personalities. The art is bright and bubbly yet simple and plain. I'm starting to really dig these short raunchy shows. I literally have no complaints about this one. read more

I have no choice but to give this series a TEN out of TEN because it's so relatable. This is an accurate depiction of high school life for the awkward outcast. It's also an accurate depiction of the psyche of an eccentric otaku. The malicious thoughts, the equating real life scenarios to video games, the anti-social lifestyle. These are themes we all (well I know me, I can't and shouldn't speak for the rest of you) know. What truly makes this series gold is how Tomoko isn't portrayed for laughs in a malicious way. She has her struggles and while this leads to hilarious antics, read more

This was exactly what I was looking for. I wish I’d seen this when I was 11 or 12. As an American, a raunchy female led sitcom is a rarity. One set in high school is unheard of. It’s raunchy yet not in your face lewd (a la Seven mortal Sins). It breaks the mold of the most popular, sought after, athletic, highly intelligent, student council president being the central character. I humanizes the characters by grounding them in the reality that they are not school idols. It’s funny and touching, but not preachy. No life lessons learned, no PSA at the end. I should read more

So I was looking for something along the lines of "hot chicks with swords" and stumbled upon Blade & Soul. I wasn’t disappointed. The action was clever and exciting. The characters were well thought out and interesting. The visuals were a treat to look at. It delivered what it offered and I’m glad I watched it. But I do have one complaint I wish to address to pad this review. The character of Hazuki is poor designed and overused to virtually no effect. I feel the show could’ve done without her. Some may dislike this show because of all the T & A and that’s read more

I remember watching this on VHS from Streamline, and it's with enthusiastic nostalgia I give this a five out of five. The movies is a rather abrupt summation of the series, which is adapted from a long running manga. The story focuses on Ken as he searches post apocalyptic (every anime was post apocalyptic back then) for Julia, his woman, taken by Shin his best friend and the Fist of the South Star. To be honest it's a little dated but has a motion picture budget so it actually looks great. Some of the more graphic deaths are blurred to tone it down, I hate read more

IT'S NOT ABOUT SWIMMING! despite what one would glean from the title and picture. What it is about is a tale of love, familial obligation and being bound by the past. The characters are interesting and diverse and the story is intriguing. It' hard to praise this anime without giving too much away, but the animation is smooth and fluid, but that's to be expected from an anime not dependent on action scenes. But it's a touching love story that's both tragic and seems genuine. If this is your sort of genre (it's not mine though I finished it) I recommend watching it. HOWEVER, there read more

I wish I'd watched this sooner, rather than later. I love the world that they live in and watching them explore it, and how we're on that journey with them. There's a lot to explain and not enough time per episode to explain it, which is great, because it rationalizes why the story is so long. The characters are diverse and interesting but also not cliched. Killua and Leorio were my favourite characters because they had the best character motivations. It has battles both mental and physical and sometimes both, battles are far more thrilling when there's a mental component as well; rather he with read more
