Preliminary
Just to get this out right away before this review. This writing will not consist of anime or manga differences, rather you choose to immerse your self into this epic journey by reading the manga or watching the anime is your preferential decision. Personally I am more of a fan of anime then manga, but the manga is a fantastic read if your a manga fan and only like following the main plot points. Also this review will not explore dry details and things that most people should probably already know like the premise of the story or characters at this point since its been read more

The first thing you need to know about Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica is that it is not as revolutionary as it wants you to think it is. Dark magical girl shows have been done before--Princess Tutu delved into some pretty heavy stuff, and Revolutionary Girl Utena (if you can even call it mahou shoujo) went...well, deeper. Action magical girl shows have been done before, Nanoha's probably the prime candidate for magical girl shootouts, but practically every popular magical girl show since Sailor Moon's been about throwing around magic for peace and justice. Even looking outside the mahou shoujo field, at deconstructions that throw young kids read more

I am very aware of the controversial hatel this anime has produced among the community, it is almost quite sad. This is I think is a series you will either deem one of the most spectacular series to grace the medium, or something you will hate, depending on your tastes in certain hobbies. If you’re a video gamer at heart, you will probably just feel as though your being swept away into an immerse experience that won’t let go especially if your have never seen an anime marketed towards the video game virtual reality. I was so intrigued to watch this, after seeing read more

At the beginning, Hyakka Ryouran: Samurai Girls almost seems to know where it's going in terms of plot. Almost. A fascinating introduction informs us that this show will combine historical elements with fantasy and science fiction elements. Somehow, in this world of Zeppelins, DragonBall-style scouters, and bio genetic mutations, the Tokugawan Shogunate is in charge. And this re-imaged version of the Tokugawan Shogunate maintains its grip of power by utilizing attractive female super-warriors that it calls "Master Samurai". Now, this is all pretty far out there, but its also kind of cool, and after the first episode I was eager to see where they were read more

Hitman Reborn’s story revolves around a teenage boy attending Junior High whom everyone calls “Tsuna”. He is known to be bad physically and academically and top of that, he is unpopular, an absolute "loser" and had no friends. His life however, takes a sudden and extraordinary change when ‘Reborn’, an infamous hitman from the Vongola mafia family, takes a flight to Japan and trains Tsuna into becoming the 10th boss of Vongola.


One of the largest flaws in Hitman Reborn’s storytelling is the plot inconsistencies, not much planning can be seen in the plots department. That’s the sole reason why Hitman Reborn’s story changed so much read more

.hack//Roots is a fine sequel that's kind of bashed because of the plug-in-nature relationship to the .hack//G.U. games. And it's sad it's kind of bashed, because Roots was a really good installment in the .hack// Series. My favorite has and probably will always be SIGN but I found Roots to be very enjoyable at the least.

In terms of the story it struck a fine balance of keeping in the nature of .hack in general with out going over the SAME OLD STORY. While it re-introduced the story of the mystic "Key of the Twilight" as explored in .hack//SIGN and it's sequel quartet. Bringing in all read more

The two main things that turned me off right away where.

ONE: Some of the worst attempts at blending cell animation and cgi graphics I've seen in quite some time. The cell animation on it's own is passable but not great. The computer generated monsters and various vehicles look fairly good. The problem comes when the two styles of animation interact. It kind of feels like a really cheap sci-fi show that's painfully obvious they're using a green screen. The actors and monsters just don't look like they're really interacting with each other.

Two: The English dubbing left a lot to be desired. Poor writing for read more
