It almost feels unnecessary for me to review this movie. Everybody knows about it. Everybody (who knows what they’re talking about) knows it’s a masterpiece. Is there really anything else I can add to the discussion surrounding this movie? No, but I still wanna talk about it anyway because I love this movie & actually have yet to review a Studio Ghibli movie. But first a little history. I originally watched Spirited Away for the first time back in 2018 a few months after I had just gotten into anime proper & knew who Hayao Miyazaki was. More importantly though, I knew the reputation this read more

Real (Manga) add (All reviews)
Preliminary
Can I even call this a review? I mean, I’ll be talking about things I like. I’ll be going over aspects of the series as if it was a review. But I won’t really be talking about Real as if I’m reviewing instead I’ll just be talking about it as if I was casually discussing it in a discord chat or VC. But before we start I need to establish 3 things. Firstly, Real is still an ongoing manga as of the writing of this review. Secondly, I haven’t caught up to Real, I’ve read 13 volumes. Thirdly, Real is my 2nd favorite manga so read more

Slam, motherfuckin, Dunk. You say those 3 words & they just begin to resonate throughout the room. That’s the power this manga has. Slam Dunk is a series that, I hate to use this phrase because I think it’s stupid. “Transcends manga”. I don’t necessarily use that because I think it’s the most well written, most clever, or best manga ever. Slam Dunk doesn’t even crack my top 10 of all time (but it comes pretty damn close). So why do I use that phrase? Because I honestly think Slam Dunk is a manga that appeals to everybody.

Basketball is a universally understood concept. It’s read more

City Hunter Shinjuku Private Eyes is awesome. After a long time, City Hunter returns to animation with a brand new original movie by Sunrise (the studio that originally animated City Hunter in the first place). I think it replicates what made City Hunter so awesome in the first place & is a fantastic return to form.

The story really isn’t anything special tbh. It isn’t bad, it’s about our boy Ryo getting hired as a bodyguard (as he usually does in the series) by a famous model & then evolving into a plot about trying to stop a corporation & their super weapon. It’s not a read more

GTO (Manga) add (All reviews)
GTO (Great Teacher Onizuka) is absolutely legendary. It’s about a former gang member turned teacher teaching one of the worst classes in his school & turning them around into fine young men & women. Throughout time its been hailed as an all time great & for very good reason. In this review I hope to explain what makes this series so legendary.

I’ll start with the concept. A manga about turning into delinquents into fine people, giving them a figure in their life to look up to. It’s not the most original set-up in story telling but because of this we get to see ourselves in read more

Black Jack is a pretty dope manga. Written & illustrated by the one & only Osamu Tezuka, it ran from 1973 to 1983 & was one of his most successful works as it was running & then became one of his most recognizable overtime. I really don’t know where else to take this intro so I guess we’ll get started. Probably gonna be some spoilers, just a heads up.

Story:

Black Jack doesn’t really have any sort of narrative. It’s an episodic series with self contained stories that don’t really reference each other too much. While I don’t think Black Jack does anything at all to maybe read more

This review will contain spoilers

Osamu Tezuka is a figure who I feel needs no introduction. Often labeled the god of manga, he’s made so much throughout his career, from Dororo, Astro Boy, Message to Adolf, Buddha & so many more. It’s safe to say this man created a legacy throughout his 60 year life. Today we’ll be looking at his manga called Phoenix. Phoenix was considered by Tezuka to be his life's work, originally beginning in 1956, getting cancelled shortly after, & rebooted in 1967. It ran for over 20 years but was tragically left unfinished due to Tezuka’s death in 1989. Without further ado, read more

Note that this is a text entry from my blog. This isn't a professional review & is more of a rantview on my disapproval to put it very nicely towards to the first 3 Kara no Kyoukai movies (but in particular the first & second movie which is why I'm pasting it for a review here). Also there's probably spoilers so caution is advised

I'm not someone who usually goes against the grain when it comes to beloved anime. Most of my favorites are acclaimed popular shows & my 2nd favorite anime is Cowboy Bebop. That's not to say I don't have my unpopular opinions read more

Its been 40 years since this manga was released onto this world. This #1, masterpiece manga by Rumiko Takahashi. Twas over a year ago that I watched the anime and about 9 months since I reviewed the anime, which I dubbed both a masterpiece and my favorite anime of all time. I'm now back to tackle the original source in celebration of both the 40th anniversary (which I’m a bit early on), and my ever lasting love of this series. This review will mostly be comparisons between the anime and the manga as quite honestly, a lot of what is to be said here are read more

Kimera (Anime) add (All reviews)
Me being me, I love seeking out & watching really awful anime OVAs. With me also liking to write reviews on these said atrocities on occasion, I have come across some real stinkers such as Dark Cat, Sword For Truth, Kennel Tokorozawa, & Kite to name a few. Kimera just so happens to be another victim about to face my wrath. I’m kinda hoping this will be somewhat bearable, but we’ll find out I guess.

Story: 1/10

The story is completely incomprehensible. The “plot” is supposed to be about this guy named Osamu finding the titular character & protecting her I think? The only thing we read more
