Containing some fulfilling backstory, a great amount of intense action and some great plot development, One Piece: Season Four, Voyage Four is another winner and a continuation of the greatness that makes up this shonen masterpiece.

Heaven’s Lost Property: The Angeloid of Clockwork

Heaven’s Lost Property: The Angeloid of Clockwork

| February 26, 2013 | 0 Comments

Full of flying panties, unrequited love and a robot angel harem, Heaven’s Lost Property: The Angeloid of Clockwork is something that I certainly did not enjoy and had trouble trying to swallow the ridiculousness of it all. Following the events of the first two seasons, Clockwork follows Tomoki and the New World Discovery Club being […]

In my previous review of Baka & Test: Season Two, I raised a number of complaints about that particular season, but I had failed to mention therein two complaints I had about the season that did not make it in to the review as they then seemed petty, but are now relevant. There were notable […]

Toriko: Part One

The culinary arts have been explored in anime and manga for years, but no anime or manga has ever managed to inject the same testosterone fueled madness of Dragon Ball Z or Fist of the North Star into cuisine, until Toriko. Serialized in Shonen Jump, Misutoshi Shimabukuro’s Toriko explores a world where cuisine is king and people wish to eat rare and exotic ingredients, […]

Baka & Test: Summon the Beasts (Season Two)

When FUNimation released Baka & Test: Season One in 2011, the second season of the series was only just then airing in Japan. Given the breakneck pace at which I plowed through the first season and the high praise I heaped upon those 13 episodes and FUNimation’s Blu-ray/DVD release of them, you can imagine how […]

Blood-C: The Complete Series

| January 22, 2013 | 1 Comments

Uncompromising, subversive and incredibly violent are but a few of the many words that can describe Blood-C. Made in a collaboration between Production I.G. and CLAMP, this sort-of spin off of the original movie made in 2000, Blood: The Last Vampire, is one the most riveting horror anime TV shows of recent years and certainly […]

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

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 […]
