Deadman Wonderland: The Complete Series

Deadman Wonderland: The Complete Series

| October 8, 2012 | 0 Comments

A huge part of me has to wonder that if Deadman Wonderland had a full 26 episode run, would it be even more enjoyable than it is? Created by Manglobe, a studio that has put out plenty of great shows and based off the manga by writer Jinsei Kataoka and artist Kazuma Kondou, Deadman Wonderland […]

Lone Wolf and Cub Blu-Ray Set

As I reviewed the Shogun Assassin boxed set here, I’ve explicitly stated how much I love that set and what it means to me. That cut of Shogun Assassin is something that I find synonymous with my love of hip hop music and its culture. With this new Lone Wolf and Cub Blu-Ray set, we […]

Ga-Rei-Zero: The Complete Series

Ga-Rei-Zero: The Complete Series

| September 24, 2012

Ga-Rei-Zero‘s first two episodes makes one very nostalgic for the anime that was distributed in the early 90′s. There’s school girls with swords, giant mythical creatures and violence galore. Then all of that fades away into the current trend that plagues the anime medium today, generic formulas and cliches that have been done to death. […]

Freezing

Based on the seinen manga by the same name, this Blu-ray/DVD compilation of the anime Freezing consists of two discs with 12 episodes and several OVAs filled with all manner of exposed breasts and panty shots.  The packaging says “scintillating,” and they’re not kidding.  It’s been a while since I’ve seen anything quite so blatant, […]

Bunny Drop: The Complete Series

Bunny Drop: The Complete Series

| September 3, 2012 | 0 Comments

The 2011 anime Bunny Drop is easily my second favorite series released by anime distributor NIS America, after Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day. Maybe I’m totally calling myself out as a softy by admitting as much, but so be it. This touching slice-of-life story about a 30-year-old bachelor who decides, against his extended […]

After Luffy takes care of the White Berets, Nami, Chopper, Robin and Zoro are whisked off by a giant […]

The epic tale of the Elric brothers comes to dramatic close and a satisfying ending in the Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood Collection 2. Containing the final 30 episodes of the series, it concludes extremely well and widens the scope, in comparison to the original series. In this set, we learn about Hohenheim’s origins, where the first […]

Cat Planet Cuties: The Complete Series

| May 23, 2012 | 0 Comments

If Cat Planet Cuties (Asobi Ni Iku Yo!) sounds like a somewhat shallow series, let me assure you that it is indeed shallow in a number of ways. With that said, the series did surprise me with the quality and ambitious scope of its action sequences, and the complexity of some of the supporting cast. […]
