Nodame Cantabile

Apr 30, 2011

I will admit that at first Nodame Cantabile wasn't going to be something that I was going to enjoy all that much.  I mean sure it had been getting a lot of hype at the time, but every time I even considered watching it just looking at the screenshots or reading the synopsis it would always just turn me off and I would end up watching something else.  So when I decide to just endure it and began watching the first episode you can imagine my surprise when it turns out to not be as bad as I thought it was going to be and in fact I was finding it to be highly entertaining.  Needless to say that...

Best Student Council

Apr 30, 2011

I started watching Best Student Council after a recommendation from a friend who said that it was one of funnier school based animes that he had seen.  Well by the end of the series I wasn't sure if he was trying to trick me into watching something that is only average at best or if he just had rather bad taste in school based comedies. Story: The plot of the series follows Rino and her talking puppet Puuchan.  As the two of them join the student council and get use to their new lives living in the dorms and attending the academy.  Throw in a cast largely made up of only females all of whom...

Star Driver

Apr 20, 2011

Where to start...well by the end of the first episode of Star Driver I had the feeling that this was trying to be something close to that of Gurren Lagann.  While this show may never actually attain that level it is still a fairly good anime especially for those viewers who are looking for the not so average mecha battle anime. Story: The story of Star Driver is rather hard to place.  It is overall interesting there are in my opinion a couple of problems with the story.  The first being that even after finishing the series and thinking that you pretty much understand everything you realize...

Kore wa Zombie desu ka?

Apr 20, 2011

So within the first couple of minutes in the show we get to see the male lead get hit by a truck and sent flying at which point he calmly mentions that he is in fact a zombie.  Now then not many anime of the anime that I have seen have ever really started out like that.  So needless to say that after that rather interesting introduction I was quite interested in seeing how exactly the series would develop.  What followed was something that while it may not have been the greatest thing ever it was certainly fairly entertaining in its own right.  I mean there was just so much to take in...

Yumekui Merry

Apr 19, 2011

Quite possibly the greatest let down of the winter 2011 season.  Yumekui Merry had potential to be so much better than it turned out to be.  Though I'm saying this series was awful it was still actually one of the bettter shows of the season. Story: The main plot of Yumekui Merry is that these beings known as Dream Demons want to come over from the dream world to the real world by taking a human vessel and as such basically taking control of that human.  Then introduce the two main characters Merry who is a dream demon who wants to go back to the dream world but is stuck physically in the...

Fullmetal Alchemist

Feb 26, 2011

I had thought about spending a good portion of this review writing a rant about why I dislike Fullmetal Alchemist such much.  But being the fair minded individual I am I decided not to. Sure I have to give credit where the show deserves it.  The story though it stopped completely following the manga was still fairly good for what it was.  The mixture of comedy, action, and mystery kept the show for the most part somewhat interesting.  The animation was really good with a good mixture of forms to keep things from every looking overly repetitive.  Backgrounds, character designs, and...

FLCL

Feb 26, 2011

What to say about Fooly Cooly well actually a bigger problem might be where to begin.  How about we start with this FLCL isn't an anime that is going to be liked by everyone.  In all honesty I'm fairly sure that you're either going to love FLCL or you're going to hate it.  I haven't meet anyone that I can think of that falls towards the middle, they didn't love it at the sametime they didn't hate it either.  The story for FLCL isn't really all that of a simple one and I would have to say that one would need to watch it mulitple times in order to fully understand everything.  Though...

Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children

Feb 25, 2011

So I'm sure fans of the Final Fantasy series have already gone and seen the movie.  Many of whom will probably argue that this is the greatest movie of all time made as a sequel to the greatest game of all time.  To which I'm not likely to completely disagree the game was great to be sure and the movie almost as good.  For starters I will say that you don't have to had played Final Fantasy VII before watching this movie because even if you haven't played the game you can still get a fair amount of enjoyment out of the movie.  Though some of things will probably completely fly over your...

Eve no Jikan

Feb 25, 2011

Eve no Jikan revolves around the timeless question of whether androids could ever possibly have any form of emotions.  With the story for the most part taking place within a secret cafe involving a cast made up of both andriods and humans.  Though Eve no Jikan does a wonderous job in blurring the line between them to such a degree that it becomes almost impossible to actually tell them apart.  Though the overall theme in Eve no Jikan as been explored before in other forms such as the movie I,Robot or Bicentennial Man, but instead as following the exact same course that either of those movies...

Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone

Feb 23, 2011

This movie is about what you would expect it's pretty much the entire series condensed down to a movie version.  Though luckly or prehaps unlucky depending on how you feel about the Evangelion series it's spread out over 4 movies with 1.0 being the first.  This first movie covers the first three angel battles.  Which to say isn't a bad thing since are probably the best thing about the Evangelion series.  Besides the battles you get what you would expect some character building, but where the movie differs in this from the televsion series is that the movie for the most part only focuses...

Tytania

Okay so I'm a big sucker for just about any space opera.  I mean what's not to love about them you get romance, space battles, politics, good music, and a plot with the fate of galaxy/universe/whatever at stake.  All of these things are of course what you get out of Tytania. The Story: The universe or galaxy, I forget which, is for the most part under the control of the Empire of Valdana who is under the control of the Tytania Clan.  Who controls everything through their influence which of course means their military and economical might.  They are for the most part the most feared and...

Eureka Seven: Pocket Full of Rainbows

Feb 23, 2011

Okay so for starters if you go into this thinking that it's a movie with a plot that takes place after the story in the tv series or it's a movie that basically tells the same story all over again, but much shorter with some new scenes thrown in then you would be wrong.  This movie is something of an alternate retelling of the story with some rather big changes in not only the story, but the characters as well.  People who were enemies in the tv series now take on completely different roles.  So that was just a warning.  If you completely loved the story from the tv series then you many...

I will admit that when I first started watching Eureka Seven I didn't think that this was going to be a series that I was going to enjoy all that much.  Probably for the sole reason that I really did not like the characters all that much.  They annoyed me to no end.  I mean sure the story seemed like it was going to be somewhat interesting and I'm always up for a good mecha, but the characters just seemed to turn me off the series completely.  Though against my better judgement at the time I decided to stick with it and watch the series through to the end and I must say that this was one...

To put it quite simply Escaflowne is about a girl named Hitomi who leads a somewhat normal live of Earth, but then one day she gets transported to another world that is falling under the shadow of an evil empire and she now discovers that she has the ability to see the future of what will happen in that world.  So it is up to her to as to whether she will use her abilities to help Vaan the young king who just happens to have brought Hitomi to this other world.  What follows is a story of mecha battles, fantasy, romance, and destiny told in such a manner that few series can ever actually achieve...

Feb 21, 2011

Eden of the East is just one of those shows that within the first half of an episode you know you're either going to like the series or going to for the most part completely dislike the series.  Within the first several minutes of the show we get the female lead, Saki, meeting main character, Akira Takizawa, who is standing completely naked and holding a gun if front of all places the "White House".  Then from that point on the story draws the viewer into a high stakes game of life and death that makes it next to impossible to stop oneself from continuing onto the next episode.  For...

Tristia of the Deep Blue Sea is an ova based off of a PS2 and PC game in which a girl named Nanoca Flanka is sent to the sea-side town of Tristia to help revitalize the local economy though the questions associated with why she was sent there are left unexplained in the ova and you would have to have had played the game to understand some of these things.  But the ova doesn't even really focus on these things and instead tends to focus on the golem competition that is at the center of the two episodes.  That pretty much sums up the entire series an extremely lame mecha competition/battle with some...

A condensed review that says everything I have to say about this series.  I mean really if I was to write everything I would end up being here for a good two hours. I will admit that when I first started watching Durarara!! I was all that impressed and didn't really see what all the hype was about.  The characters were interesting and it looked great and the story was interesting, but still it was missing that certain something to get me hooked to the series.  That all changed when I actually got several episodes into the series at which point things began to look epic.  To story became...

Dragon Ball Z

Feb 20, 2011

Dragon Ball Z for me probably like a lot of other people out there was proabably among the very first anime we ever saw and was mostly responsible for getting us into anime.  Which strictly speaking is mostly likely one of the main reasons why I rate this anime so highly.  Looking back now it wasn't anywhere near the greatest thing ever created even for the time when it came out and yet regardless of that.  If it hadn't been DBZ then it is unlikely that I would be watching anime today.  Then again I probably would have stumbled across anime regardless of whether I watched DBZ or not, but...

A giant wall known as Hell's Gate surrounds Tokyo and people with superpowers known as contractors roam the city fighting not only each other but police as well as other government agencies.  With one contractor being feared more than all the rest even among other contractors and that contractor is the series protagonist BK-201 Hei also known as The Black Reaper who's main job is to fight and defeat other contractors while looking for his sister.  That pretty much sums up Darker Than Black in a nutshell.  The series is laid out to be mainly comprised of several episode long mini-arcs that...

What Rec is is 7 little episodes that are half as long as a standard televisoin episode.  I saw this and decided that I wouldn't expect to much from this series in terms of things like plot and character development.  But boy was I wrong.  Not only did this series have as much development as standard series that runs anywhere between 11-26 episodes at 24 minutes apiece.  Seriously if nothing else I found this series to be a lot better than your standard romance drama series inpart because it was so short.  It had all the ups and downs that you would expect from a regular romance...

Bungaku Shoujo such a lovely little movie that is over before you really want it to be.  Or at least that was what I thought when I finished the movie.  Though as for the reason for having those thoughts well they become pretty obvious within the first 30 minutes of the movie. The main plot revolves around Konoha Inoue as well as his fellow student and literature club member Touko Amano who just happens to be a yokai who eats stories as a form of food.  Which is why she forces Konoha into the club so that he can write short stories for her as an after school snack.  Things begin to take...

The Story: While the premise of Dance in the Vampire Bund is interesting in all honesty it seemed to try to incorporate too many different things into its story to make it really any good at any one thing.  There was politics, romance, comedy, action, & supernatural themes and while these are good genres on there own and if combined correctly they can make an excellent series.  The problem with Dance in the Vampire Bund is that it doesn't focus enough on anything to bring out the full potential of any of its themes.  It tries to be something political while at the same time being a...

The story follows around a group of bounty hunters in the form of Spike Spiegel, Jack Black... See full review
