Mobile Suit Gundam Collection One

Mobile Suit Gundam Collection One

| November 30, 2015

Much to what I said in my Turn A Gundam review, the Gundam franchise is a massive undertaking, which has never managed to penetrate the American audience properly. Sure, the Gundam Wing franchise has a nostalgic following, due to the Toonami TV runs, but both Bandai Entertainment and Sunrise never managed to get people to […]

Turn A Gundam: Part One

Turn A Gundam: Part One

| June 30, 2015

As much of a mecha fan that I am, I’ve never managed to get into Gundam as a whole. I don’t know if it was just due to the fact that it was a massive undertaking or I just didn’t know where to begin. I’ve seen a few things like some random episodes of Gundam […]

The Rose of Versailles: Part 1

The Rose of Versailles: Part 1

| February 3, 2015

Marie Antoinette, who served as the Queen of France from 1774-1792, was beheaded in 1793. This we know definitively. But with that in mind, what satisfaction can we as media viewers possibly gain from watching a fictionalized account of her life apart from gaining a passing (and potentially falsified) knowledge of history– events which could […]

Junjo Romantica: Season 2

Junjo Romantica: Season 2

| November 11, 2014

I wrote in my review of Junjo Romantica Season 1 how little plot developed in that season outside the courtship of the three primary couples. No outside threats, no antagonists, just six men trying to find workable ways to approach their relationships with one another. We are talking about a Boys’ Love anime with a […]

Emma: A Victorian Romance – Season Two

Emma: A Victorian Romance – Season Two

| April 19, 2013

Emma: A Victorian Romance season two seems to be almost an entirely different show than its previous season. The plot, while still languid, seems to be quicker and fuller. This may come from the fact that there is more conflict inherent in the story lines. Emma and William have gotten to know each other during […]

Emma: A Victorian Romance Season One

| February 11, 2013

Emma: A Victorian Romance is a sweet, languid romantic story of class-crossed lovers in London. In Victorian England the idea of a maid and an heir to a business fortune falling in love was just not allowed. For Emma and William Jones, they have to figure out if they are willing to go against society […]

Ristorante Paradiso

Ristorante Paradiso

| December 4, 2012

Ristorante Paradiso is a delightfully charming slice-of-life anime about family, love, and a quirky restaurant in Rome. Ristorante Paradiso shows us that there are many types of love, whether familial, romantic or even with careers. This aspect is not directly pushed down our throat at every turn, we just begin to see it as we […]
