Ghastly Prince Enma Burning Up

| October 31, 2012

Ghastly Prince Enma Burning Up is an anime unto itself. It is funny, quirky, and full of ’70’s pop culture.

One Piece: Season Four, Voyage Two

| October 29, 2012

In the past year, I’ve managed to get through over 200 episodes of the phenomena that is One Piece. I’ve loved every single moment of it and regret not watching it sooner when many of my friends told me to. Funimation has recently begun to release the fourth season, in the same vein as their […]

Kouta Hirano’s Hellsing was one of the very few breakout manga and anime hits of the early 2000’s.

Cloud Atlas

| October 29, 2012

Wrong Turn 5

| October 23, 2012

Wrong Turn has the unique distinction of easily being one of horror’s most forgettable franchises. It all started back in 2003 with the first film, which followed several adventurers as they were silently stalked and ruthlessly murdered by a bunch of backwater, inbred cannibals. Since then, every so often, another installment is quietly released to […]
