Hellsing Ultimate Vol.IX and X

Hellsing Ultimate Vol.IX and X

| October 30, 2014

As someone whose grown up watching violent anime, I’ve always managed to rally behind Kouta Hirano’s Hellsing. While the TV series falls of the rails, the Hellsing Ultimate series offered plenty of entertainment, whose first anime series were Fist of the North Star and Ninja Scroll. While its been a long time coming, Hellsing Ultimate […]

Ghost in the Shell: Arise – Borders 1 & 2

Ghost in the Shell: Arise – Borders 1 & 2

| October 28, 2014

From intense, cerebral films, to an accessible TV series, Ghost in the Shell has managed to stay pretty relevant and within the anime zeitgeist since 1995. Its latest incarnation, Ghost in the Shell: Arise is the another attempt from Production I.G. drawing from Masamune Shirow’s well, but happens to bring a different spin on things. […]

Attack on Titan Vol.2

Attack on Titan Vol.2

| October 7, 2014

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 […]

Toriko: Collection One

Toriko: Collection One

| August 22, 2014

When I first heard about Toriko, I swore I’d have none of it. There was no way it could possibly work. I’d only be wasting my time. I mean, a fighting anime centered on food? That’s a bit of a stretch. Yet, here I am, a devout Toriko fan, and I’ll be damned if I’m […]

Attack on Titan: Part 1

Attack on Titan: Part 1

| June 6, 2014

Every so often, an anime comes along that renews people’s interest in the form, one you absolutely have to share with everyone you know. We’re talking gateway stuff, anime that leads newcomers who had maybe only seen Akira and Dragon Ball Z to suddenly build enormous anime collections in a ridiculously short span of time. […]

Space Battleship Yamato

| June 3, 2014

Getting into major legacies in any form of media can be quite daunting, whether its a long running TV show or a classic film franchise. As an anime fan, there have been plenty of times where I’ve wanted to get into shows like Gundam or Gatchaman, but there becomes this issue with where does one […]

Robotics;Notes Pt. 2 Review

Robotics;Notes Pt. 2 Review

| June 3, 2014

For its few faults, Robotics;Notes Pt. 2 presents the one thing that I care most about in anime, besides the awesome animation, character development. The second half of the latest Science Adventure series is absolutely worth anyone’s time, due to the fantastic characters contained within. After the major cliffhanger from the previous volume, where the […]

Fairy Tail: Part 10

Fairy Tail: Part 10

| May 25, 2014

Fairy Tail hits hard in this set! This doesn’t mean just the fighting, although not to be ignored, but also the characters’ loyalties, drives, loves, and friendships are laid out in beautiful rawness for the world to experience. This set is the conclusion of the Tenrou Island Arc. What starts as a routine S-Class Tournament […]

Fusé: Memoirs of a Huntress

Fusé: Memoirs of a Huntress

| May 12, 2014

The Princess and the Pilot was a bold choice for NIS America’s first feature film release, having only ever released anime series before. For their first home video release of a theatrical feature, I honestly would have expected something more akin to their second feature release, Fusé: Memoirs of a Huntress (Fuse: teppô musume no […]
