updated their review of Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica
Score 6/10

updated their review of School Days
Score 6.5/10

The Short : Story 7 - Offers a different (arguably disturbing) take on previously-seen situations and settings with a fitting ending (I found it somewhat satire and extremely satisfying. how evil of me!). Animation 7 - Well-done and pleasant to look at, but is pretty typical with nothing...

updated their review of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann
Score 6.5/10

I'm aware that people get scared off by text-walls, so here's a short one for you text-wall phobics: Story : Good first half, humorous parodies with good plot twist and recovery story; horrible second half, full of Gundam and DBZ nonsense. Animation : Top-notch Sound : Decent and...

updated their review of Angel Beats!
Score 4/10

I wrestled for a while as to whether I should write a review for Angel Beats , but my egotistical side finally won over with the argument that there isn't enough hate for the series despite how appallingly badly-written it is. For those that have watched it and disagree, I can prepare...

updated their review of Metropolis
Score 5/10

I'm fairly new to the scene of film and visual media critique, and thus far it's been pretty easy to piddle all over mediocre titles that the less-discerning masses have heaped undeserving praise on simply because other more-established critics have shared the same snobby, down-the-nose opinions...
