Hellsing Ultimate Vol.IX and X

| October 30, 2014 | 0 Comments

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

Attack on Titan Vol.2

| October 7, 2014 | 0 Comments

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 […]

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 […]

Robotics;Notes Pt. 2 Review

| June 3, 2014 | 0 Comments

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 […]

Robotics;Notes Part One Review

| March 5, 2014 | 0 Comments

With there being so many TV series and films to compete with my time, I still find it extremely valuable when something uses slow pacing to tell a solid story. While I certainly enjoyed the previous “Science Adventure Series”, Steins;Gate, Production I.G’s animated rendition of 5bp. and Nitroplus’ Robotics;Notes is hands down one of the […]
