Shakugan no Shana: The Movie

Shakugan no Shana: The Movie

| January 21, 2013 | 0 Comments

Shakugan no Shana: The Movie is interesting in that it is not a follow-up to the series in any way, nor does it fit seamlessly into the existing narrative of the series. If anything, it could be viewed as a summation of the events depicted in the first story arc in which Shana and Yuji […]

Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt: The Complete Series Blu-ray

Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt: The Complete Series Blu-ray

| January 12, 2013 | 0 Comments

Sure, FUNimation’s three-disc DVD release of Panty & Stocking with Garter Belt boasted a solid visual presentation and surprisingly dynamic audio… for a DVD. But as thankful as we all were for the opportunity to pick up the series on home video in any format, much less in a release of this caliber, we all […]

One Piece: Season Four-Voyage Three

| December 31, 2012 | 0 Comments

Having gone and reviewed over 200 episodes of One Piece, it still astounds me that this series, while being a straight forward Shonen title, manages to still captivate and deliver some of the most emotional punches than any other series I’ve ever seen. Major stakes get raised and the adventure even more eventful, with the […]

Steins;Gate Part Two

Steins;Gate Part Two

I adored what I got out of the first 12 episodes contained in the first part of Steins;Gate, but I have to honestly say that the final 13 within Part Two is a somewhat of a let down. After the events that take place that lead to the death of a Future Gadget Lab member, […]

Mass Effect-Paragon Lost

Co-Productions have had some good moments and bad one’s pertaining to anime. I loved The Animatrix a lot more than the last two films in the trilogy and Batman: Gotham Knight has some pretty good entries in its anthology. So when word got out about there being a Co-Production between BioWare and Funimation, concerning the Mass […]

A Certain Magical Index

The J. C. Staff studios anime, A Certain Magical Index, is but one of many media texts adapted from a series of light novels by Kazuma Kamachi. Kamachi’s saga of science and magic also spawned a manga, video games, an OVA, and even an upcoming film. The spinoff manga, A Certain Scientific Railgun, was previously […]

Shakugan no Shana: Season II

| December 27, 2012 | 1 Comments

I first encountered this highly-addictive anime through FUNimation Entertainment’s Blu-ray release of Shakugan no Shana’s first season, repackaging the same portion previously released by Geneon with the original dub and all. That release, while collecting 24 episodes of an absolutely terrific series, left me wanting a bit more from FUNimation’s future releases of the title, […]

Level E: The Complete Series

I don’t know precisely what it is that Yoshihiro Togashi does to endear me so to his work. Indeed, I have harbored such an intense emotional bond with Yu Yu Hakusho and Hunter x Hunter that they stand firmly among my most treasured manga/anime of all time. Those familiar with Togashi know that he has […]

Black Lagoon is an action junkie’s wet dream and one of the finest anime TV series that Studio Madhouse has ever put together. Based off of the manga from Rei Hiroe, Black Lagoon follows a group of modern day pirates called Lagoon Company. The group consists of Dutch, the leader and driver of the group, […]

Ai Yori Aoshi The Complete Series

Ai Yori Aoshi The Complete Series

| November 25, 2012 | 0 Comments

Ai Yori Aoshi The Complete Series is part of FUNimation’s anime classics collection and consists of Ai Yori Aoshi and Ai Yori Aoshi Enishi. At first glance the series appears to be just another harem anime, filled with fan service, but beneath its shallow presentation there is a rather good tale of two young lovers.  […]
