One piece is another well respected and ambitious shonen series especially in Japan. It is currently the leading crown jewel of shonen in its home country and the most popular manga in the world. Believe me if there is any shonen series out there that deserves this recognition, it is one piece. Helmed by Eiichiro Oda himself, the author of one piece has a level of commitment and confidence to his manga that you don’t often see in many mangaka’s careers. One by one Naruto, bleach, fairy tail, hitman reborn, magi. They all fell apart at some point, usually towards the often unplanned or convoluted read more

This film had some slight enjoyment to it but nothing to crazy. Considering the time in which it aired, the animation and budget was improved quite a bit over its TV series counterparts of each respective series. How ever I did not like how this film protrayed more of an emphasis on mazinger dominating most battles and Devilman characters were amostly delogated to supporting roles.

Personally I enjoy the Devilman verse more so then the classic Mazinger series and to see the Devilman villians treated like this was kind of off putting. All in all though the budget and animation was interesting and if you enjoy read more

When it comes to monster of the week 70's mech series, this is pretty much about as simplistic and bare bones as you can possibly get both in characterization, stories, and animation. It had its somewhat great moments and I think what kept me invested was seeing Baron ashura and his many antics and conquests to try and take down mazinger.(But certainly not as great as "Berge Katse" from Gatchamon. ) Loved the episodes showcasing the many mazinger upgrades as well and some of the stories were inventive and quite interesting in early parts of the series. It then built up steam quite a bit 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.

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
