Everyone loves a good story that makes them think. "Death Note" is a good example of an anime that is loved mainly for that aspect. Most people will disagree with me on this subject, but I think Code Geass is in fact more thought provoking than Death Note. Don't get me wrong, I loved Death Note and I always will. However, Code Geass gave me something that Death note just couldn't...

I had actually watched Code Geass about 2 years ago, and I was really glad that I did. Recently I decided to re-watch Code Geass, and in doing so I gained a new appreciation for read more

The first romance anime I ever watched was "Kimi ga Nozomu Eien" (Rumbling Hearts); and since then no other romance has just quite satisfied me. Whether the characters were too shallow, the plot was too cliche, or any other wide variety of faults, I was always disappointed- until now.

For me, being able to relate to the characters is one of the most important parts of a manga/anime. If I can't relate, I won't even try to finish the manga/anime. Some where down the road, someone decided that making the main character a helpless, worthless sack of shit was a good idea, and for some reason read more

Note: This a review on the overall series, not on the first movie. Due to the fact that I think you should know what you're getting yourself into before you decide to watch this movie, I am attempting to write one review for 7 movies. Also, I feel many people will not watch these movies due to the bad ratings given to the first movie.

If there is one thing that I want to emphasize more than anything, it is this-- do not let the first movie discourage you. If you do, you will be throwing away a chance to watch an amazing anime. I am read more

Note: If you haven't already watched Neon Genesis Evangelion- go watch it. If you've already watched it, and you haven't watched The End of Evangelion-- for the love of god, please, PLEASE, watch this movie. Need I emphasis more?

Just like every other person who watches Neon Genesis Evangelion (NGE), I was in love, I was crying, but mainly, I was confused. If you are at all postponing watching The End of Evangelion (EoE) because you are confused with the ending of NGE, stop reading this review and go watch EoE. Why? Well, because chances are it will change your outlook on life. EoE truly is, read more

After finishing this anime, you're going to be asking yourself one thing, and one thing only. "What did I just see?" Whether it's "What kind of s**t did I just see?" or "What amazing twist did I just experience?", chances are, your jaw will be touching the floor.

Now, a lot of people rate this anime harshly. I feel that this is due to the build up of already harsh reviews. I don't know about you guys, but when I have bad expectations for an anime and start watching it, 9/10 times I won't like the anime. Which is really just a pity. Thankfully, I read more

This review is going to be a little different. Instead of focusing on one main theme for my review like I usually do, I'm going to explain several. This is my second attempt at writing a review for this anime.

Freedom is something that is not easy to achieve. Whether it's freedom of the heart, mind, body or soul; freedom does not come cheap. Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom really portrays well how powerful the idea of freedom is.

Ein has no freedom, and is a puppet to be used for peoples needs. Whether she's killing someone or having sex, none of it is for herself. She read more

Preliminary
Before I get started, let me say that this review is definitely subject to change. Mainly due to that fact that I had to voice my opinion on a really enjoyable anime, I'm writing this before the series is over. I know, writing a review on a series before it's finished reviewing is taboo; however I really feel that this anime needs more recognition. Mainly, I'm here to help those people who can't decide on whether they should watch this anime or not. Trust me, you not going to get an accurate feel for what you should expect from this anime after just reading read more

It's heartbreaking to see one of your favorite anime series end, so you can guess why I was so happy to hear that there was a sequel to Hajime no Ippo. I wasn't disappointed. New Challenger lived up, and passed, everything it should be. From the side splitting comedy, to the heartwarming matches; you'll never be let down. What New Challenger lacks in length, it makes up in perfection. You'll laugh, you'll cry, and then you'll laugh until you cry. You won't be able to pull away until the end. Yes, I was sad when I realized that New Challenger was only 26 episodes, but read more

Aki-Sora. One of my all time favorite incest anime, right along side Yasuga No Sora and a few other hentai films. If you've never "tested the water" of the incest genre before; Aki-Sora could or could not be what you want to start off with.

Before I get started, I cannot emphasize this enough: Aki-Sora is as close as you can get to hentai, before actually becoming a full-fledged hentai. There are sex scenes. Hot, sticky, brother-sister sex scenes. After that last statement, you might be a little grossed out. However, don't let that discourage you. Aki-Sora is a beautiful love story. Even if it is read more

"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder." If you've ever watched The Twilight Zone, you know what this statement means. And no, The Twilight Zone has nothing to do with the Twilight series.

What this statement is implying is that YOU are the one who decides what is beautiful. The statement also branches off into implying a lot of other things like, "Who decides what is wrong and right?" Really, it's up to you. If you think incest is disgusting, then so be it. If you think killing a ton of bad guys with the Death Note is wrong, then that's according to your read more
