Junjo Romantica: Season 2

| October 7, 2014 | 0 Comments

I wrote in my review of Junjo Romantica Season 1 how little plot developed in that season outside the courtship of the three primary couples. No outside threats, no antagonists, just six men trying to find workable ways to approach their relationships with one another. We are talking about a Boys’ Love anime with a […]

After watching the first episode of Attack on Titan, I knew that it was something special. It had tons of great action, intense pacing, but above all, a premise that anyone could get into. It was a no brainer that it would be a sensation and the fact that its somewhat crossed over and shown […]

Sherlock Holmes: The Complete Granada Television Series on Blu-ray

Folks do so often rave about Steven Moffat’s series Sherlock, to which I must also admit enormous fondness. And sure enough, Guy Ritchie’s Holmes films did well enough at the box offices worldwide. To my mind, though, neither Benedict Cumberbatch nor Robert Downey Jr.’s takes on Sherlock Holmes hold a candle to the Holmes brought […]

From World Events Productions (WEP), the same studio that brought us every incarnation of Voltron, Denver the Last Dinosaur aired for two seasons, totaling 50 episodes, back in late 1988. It’s a series I recall from my youth with great fondness, one that stirred up some serious nostalgia flashbacks when I learned of its impending […]

The CW had their fair share of skeptics when they announced that beloved comic book figure, The Green Arrow, would be heading to the small screen, when Arrow was announced several years ago. I’ll admit to being one of them. However, Arrow, now entering its third season, has done more to prove skeptics wrong and delight new fans in […]

In 2008, the staff at Studio Deen, the producers of such anime series as Rurouni Kenshin (1997-1998) and Fruits Basket (2001), adapted Shungiku Nakamura’s “Boys’ Love” manga, Junjo Romantica, into a wonderful, 24-episode anime. As a Boys’ Love series, Junjo focuses specifically on interconnected homosexual relationships among six Tokyo men. With a perfect balance of […]
