updated their review of Melody of Oblivion
Story It's the 21st century and Monsters who looks like humans rule human society. They seemingly provide special services for so called Monster Union Agents, granting them wishes. But they don't come cheap, for the monsters feed on children and every once in a while a life-sacrifice has to be...Read DistMan's full review
At the end of the 20th century a fierce war raged between the Monsters and the humans. The outcome was devastating for humanity -- as the Monsters had won -- and thus a new era of Monster-ruling...

Story Alright... what we've got here is a messy little story as the synopsis hints at.

updated their review of Chrono Crusade
Story As always with GONZO, you can expect high class animation, fanservice here and there, action, comedy and dramatic moments -- Chrno Crusade is no different. The story follows the same pattern as Full Metal Panic. It kicks off with some action and lighthearted moments then goes into smaller...Read DistMan's full review

updated their review of You're Under Arrest!
Story First of all, this will be a bundle review which will deal with the first OAV and both of the TV Seasons. They go together and doing a seperate review for each would just duplicate what was already written in another review and so on. The movie however demands a seperate review and that...Read DistMan's full review

Story Hana Yori Dango is a shoujo anime that has been around since 96. It’s about Tsukushi who joins Eiken Academy â€“ a school for upper-class people. This show deals with three themes. The first theme, which becomes apparent quite fast, is bullying/harassment. It isn’t quite sandbox...Read DistMan's full review

updated their review of Burst Angel
Story Here we are again, with one of Gonzo's later works. Being the Gonzo fan I am I of course watched it, and here is what I have to say about it.
What we have here is a special OPs group with lots of funding, lots of will power and four 'hot' chicks (pun intended). This group consists of...Read DistMan's full review

updated their review of Silent Mobius
Story This is an interesting series which I feel is very underrated, more people should watch it. What we've got here is a nice cyberpunk story with a mature cast and a mature story. The AMP department consists entirely of women, women which are in the beginning in their mid twenties, not in...Read DistMan's full review
It is the year 2023, 30 years since the time of the Silent Crisis that brought the world to the brink of destruction. In the present, other-dimensional beings known as the Lucifer Hawk are running...
updated their review of Hitsuji no Uta
Story They've done a good job with this series. It did feel a bit uncoordinated at times, but this is a four episode OAV and it's often very hard to avoid such things happening; there is simply not enough time.
Hitsuji No Uta is a series that I've anticipated for awhile and it was great to...Read DistMan's full review

updated their review of Maria-sama ga Miteru
Story It’s time for yet another shoujo show review. This time it’s about the girls at the prestigious all-girls catholic school called Lillian. It was founded in the beginning of the 20th century and employs the ladder system. I don’t know whether the school actually exists or not, but it...Read DistMan's full review

updated their review of Yami to Boushi to Hon no Tabibito
Story This is another one of those "spawned from H games" series. It was originally a H game released by ROOT in 2002. The TV series differs quite a bit from the game though, and while the ecchiness definitely is there, it's handled nicely and does not become annoying or overwhelming. Do not...Read DistMan's full review
Hatsumi and Hazuki are two best friends who share a bond like sisters, and perhaps something more. With newly found (and forbidden by nature) feelings of romance developing for Hatsumi, Hazuki finds...
updated their review of Zone of the Enders: Dolores
Story I thought this was going to be an all out serious show with lots of action and blood, fighting scenes etc. In the first episode we meet James who is a drunkard that wants to reconcile with his family, even though he chases other women. Then later on he discovers Dolores, who is pink and...Read DistMan's full review

Story It's time for more Maria-sama ga Miteru. It's now past new year’s and our lovely gang face a partial breakup in a not too distant future: the Rosas will graduate and soon move to universities of their choice.

updated their review of Zone of the Enders: Idolo
Story This is a well done 50 minute OAV which builds on the famous mecha action game "Zone of the Enders". This show takes place five years prior to the events in the first Z.O.E game and works as a prequel which explains how the battle mechs called "Orbital Frames" came to be.

updated their review of Hana Yori Dango - The Movie
Story First a little bit of information: this is a story that isn’t related to the Hana Yori Dango TV universe at all. It’s a 30-minute movie with the same characters involved, and they all carry the same personalities as in the TV show. Frankly speaking, there is no way this 30-minute movie...Read DistMan's full review
