Good Luck Girl is a fun and slightly insightful anime about what it is like to be so lucky you make everyone around you miserable. How is this supposed to be remedied, you ask, well by making the title character miserable, of course. This premise brings about some comedic moments as well as some intermixed […]

One Piece: Strong World

For years, films based off of long running shonen series always presented themselves as simple stories, with the only true highlight being the rich animation that would accompany this familiar territory. Eiichiro Oda wanted to make sure that this didn’t happen for the 10th One Piece film, where most of the other entries were just […]

Maken-Ki! The Complete Series

Maken-ki! is an anime TV series that has truly nothing going for it, with the exception of the ridiculous fan service that presents. From giant boobs, that would break any living woman’s back, to the extreme camel toe shots, Maken-ki! wallows in the depths of extreme fan service and stays there. Takeru Ohyama has just […]

Blood C: The Last Dark

Blood-C was most certainly a highlight of the year and one of my favorite series to come out of Production I.G. in a long while. The story was handled in a subversive way, the action was top notch and it was certainly a healthy addition to the Blood: The Last Vampire mythology. Of course, the […]

Katsuhiro Otomo’s 1988 cyberpunk classic, Akira, which he adapted from his manga of the same name, is perhaps the single most recognizable feature-length anime. For many in North America, Akira served as their introduction to anime and it is without a doubt the anime feature most viewed by American audiences. And rightly so, because Akira […]

NIS America is one of the most exciting anime distributors at work today, and not just because their Premium Edition collections are among the most beautiful, display-worthy sets on the market. Anything but predictable, NIS consistently releases anime that pushes the boundaries of what those of us who are accustomed to the North American anime […]

Sakura Wars: The Movie

Sakura Wars: The Movie

| October 24, 2013 | 0 Comments

Sakura Wars is one anime/video game series that I’ve never gotten into, which baffles me extremely. Granted, a majority of the video games never came out here, but with the steampunk elements, the wonderful character designs by Kosuke Fujishima and the fact that its set in an alternate history, there are plenty of things to […]

Last Exile -Fam, The Silver Wing-, Pt. 1

I never really found Gonzo to be all that incredible of a production house, in relation to other anime production companies. I mean sure, they were responsible for things like Blue Sub No. 6 and Hellsing, which I’ve certainly enjoyed, but I always found that their productions always took a nose dive in the later […]
