Bullbuster (Anime) add
An entry in the “real robot” genre of anime, Bullbuster focuses on the members of the vermin extermination company known as Namikome Industries. The pests in question are mutated creatures known as “giant beasts” and Namikome utilizes super powered robots to handle extermination of the beasts in order to allow the residents of Ryugan Island to return to their home. However with the small scale of Namikome’s operations, they also have to be careful with business expenses as far as management of ammunition and maintenance of their robots go.

I suppose I’ll just get the main thing with Bullbuster out of the way first in mentioning ...

Mushoku Tensei is one of the latest popular entries in the isekai genre focused on a middle-aged NEET getting killed in an accident and being reincarnated into a medieval-fantasy based world as a young boy named Rudeus Greyrat with a talent with magic. Wanting the opportunity to have a better life compared to his prior one, Rudeus sets out to improve himself as he better understands the new world he is part of and becomes acquainted with the world’s occupants.

I’ll be the first to say that this series isn’t setting out to break any new ground with the isekai genre, as it does have a ...

The name Jun Maeda might ring a bell to fans of anime adaptations of visual novels from Key that were popular in the 2000s and early 2010s like Kanon, Air, and Clannad with his involvement in their writing. These titles were well known for having light comedy mixed in with heavy drama, romance, and fantasy elements that pushed things rather heavily with suspension of disbelief. Unfortunately, pushing out the same type of storytelling formula with all your works can lead to audiences tiring of someone’s creative works over time. Such is the case with Maeda’s most recent anime made, The Day I Became a God, ...

Brain Powerd (Anime) add
Mixed Feelings
Will admit it's been a while since I've had some rather complicated thoughts regarding an anime series and looks like Brain Powerd has done just that with me. Being Yoshiyuki Tomino's answer to Evangelion in the late 1990s, the series is set on a future Earth where the planet is being ravaged by earthquakes and floods due to the massive power emitted from a massive alien spacecraft called Orphan that an enemy faction called the Reclaimers are attempting to learn more about how to harness its power and leave the planet, which would result in humanity's destruction should this happen. Opposing Orphan are those aboard ...

Sing a Bit of Harmony was a film that got sandwiched in with Vivy -Fluorite Eye's Song- and Belle in 2021 with its focus on AI and technology within a near-future setting. The name Yatsuhiro Yoshiura may ring a bell to some folks as he was the director behind the highly acclaimed 2008 ONA, Time of Eve, with its mundane focus on androids and exploring how life would seem from their perspective as they secretly have gained sentience. Sing a Bit of Harmony dabbles into somewhat similar elements of exploring a near-future setting with technology as a company is testing out a new AI-programmed robot ...

Ghost in the Shell 2.0 is a 2008 reproduction of the 1990s cyberpunk anime film of the same name directed by Mamoru Oshii and created by Masamune Shirow. I’ll be approaching this review on providing my thoughts of this reproduction and providing fresh thoughts on the film after having last seen the original 1995 film back in the 2000s.

Far as the reproduction element of this film goes, it largely feels like a gimmick to me for the most part. While enhancing most of the original visuals for digital film, some key scenes in the film are animated in 3DCG and a few scenes with digital ...
