Mobile Suit Gundam Collection One

Mobile Suit Gundam Collection One

| November 30, 2015

Much to what I said in my Turn A Gundam review, the Gundam franchise is a massive undertaking, which has never managed to penetrate the American audience properly. Sure, the Gundam Wing franchise has a nostalgic following, due to the Toonami TV runs, but both Bandai Entertainment and Sunrise never managed to get people to […]

Tokyo Ghoul: Season One

Tokyo Ghoul: Season One

| October 27, 2015

I can honestly admit that I was scared when watching the very first few episodes of Tokyo Ghoul. Not because it was actually scary, but the fact that it seemed to have been plagued by being a derivative work of horror/action storytelling and was failing to live up to the hype that anime fandom was […]

Space Dandy: Season 2

Space Dandy: Season 2

| October 27, 2015

Shinichiro Watanabe’s Space Dandy is a brilliant melange of comedy, animation and a certain amount of cool, that all anime lovers are bound to enjoy aspects of.

Turn A Gundam: Part One

| June 30, 2015

As much of a mecha fan that I am, I’ve never managed to get into Gundam as a whole. I don’t know if it was just due to the fact that it was a massive undertaking or I just didn’t know where to begin. I’ve seen a few things like some random episodes of Gundam […]

Ping Pong The Animation

| June 23, 2015

Hero worship is in full effect in our modern pop culture. People obsess over new superhero films, comic books and a many of other things that have permeated through our public consciousness. People often forget that our family and comrades can offer many things to be seen as heroes in our everyday lives as well. […]

Nobunagun

| June 9, 2015

While I’ve had plenty of rewarding experiences recently watching shows like Ping Pong and Space Dandy, there’s nothing like watching something like Nobunagun. Adapted from Masato Hisa’s manga, this anime from Studio Bridge isn’t going to set the world ablaze, but it makes a point to have boatloads of fun, with both its quirky characters […]

The series’ final twenty […]
