HazelMizuki updated their review of Attack on Titan
Score 7/10

Well, the story and the world are interesting, and I'm dying to know what this world is, but the 8 or so hours of season 1 do little to explain it to me, so all the yakking about what to do or not do and all the shouting about mistrust and honor, not to mention endless fight scenes and grim deaths...

HazelMizuki updated their review of Cowboy Bebop
Score 8/10

Cowboy Bebop excelled in mood, style, atmosphere, but ultimately, for me, lacked in story.  Some of the stories did keep me interested, especially looking into the pasts of our characters, or some of the particularly weird ones, but often I was bored.  Well, one difference between me...

HazelMizuki updated their review of Elfen Lied
Score 5/10

I wanted to see a cool anime featuring worthwhile female characters, and I like dark, twisted, psychological tales (not that that's all I like.)  I wanted to like this.  Sadly, it didn't happen for me. The elements are all there for a good little gothic sci-fi horror story.  It...

Score 9/10

Okay, so far I've only watched 7 of the 10 episodes that are out so far, but I think I am getting enough of the gist.  It is possible that over time the quality will diminish, but I will take my chances and write this premature review. Basically I want to know what drugs these guys are...

updated their review of The Flowers of Evil
Score 9/10

Loved it.  It took me until after episode 6 to really start to figure it out, in a world somewhere between reality, angst & melodrama, and metaphor, and it all works really pretty great together.  Music and anime was "just a bit off" and pretty creepy, like these...

Score 9.8/10

75 episodes.  I watched the Japanese version.  I have heard some of the English dub and can say -- watch the Japanese version.  The Japanese cast is fantastic - the English language version not so much.   STORY - Very compelling right from the start.  Having read the...

updated their review of Glass Mask (2005)
Score 7.5/10

I was led to Glass Mask mostly because I was looking for another rivalry story like the one in Hikaru no Go, and this was recommended on Anime Planet's Hikaru no Go page.  Also, while I had no previous knowledge of Go, I am a lifelong theatre professional, so this would be more of my own...
