Power Rangers Megaforce: Vol. 1

Power Rangers Megaforce: Vol. 1

| August 30, 2013 | 0 Comments

It’s certainly no secret: I love the Power Rangers, and honestly only a fraction of that affection is ironic. Sure, from an academic standpoint I’m fascinated by the production of Power Rangers, which forces writers to fashion new, average-American-friendly narratives out of footage from Japanese series.

What would you expect a collaborative effort between anime studio Sunrise and Square Enix to look like? Presumably some sort of fantasy-mecha-RPG kind of show, right? Of course. What else? That’s why, when these two companies actually did come together to create the slice-of-life, comedy series, Daily Lives of High School Boys, they quickly dispelled […]

High School DxD: Season One

Like the title, High School DxD, contains girls with large breasts placed in situations where they are bound to expose them. Although, truthfully this is a little deceiving, considering there is so much more to this anime. Magic, romance, fighting, and burgeoning friendships to name a few.

The music was fantastic and one of the ways that I found out about Supercar, for which I am eternally grateful. Shoji Kawamori’s mecha designs have always been awesome and to have them flying […]
