updated their review of 5 Centimeters per Second
A few Otakons ago, I was sitting in the AMV contest like I do every year. I remember tapping my foot impatiently, awaiting the Humor category, which they always save for last. Even though I primarily watch for the humor category, I do like to vote in the contest honestly; so I pay close attention...Read MarkoSinadinovic's full review

updated their review of Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children
I played Final Fantasy VII many years ago, when I was still single and living in my dad's house. I'm now married with two children and so you can just imagine how long ago that was. I still know my party members -- Cloud, Tifa, Aeris, Barret, Vincent, Yuffie, Cid, and Red XII, but the other...Read MarkoSinadinovic's full review

updated their review of Ergo Proxy
Anime has come a long way since Astroboy and Voltron, as is evidenced by even the merest glimpse of Ergo Proxy . This visual delight, though perhaps not the latest, is – in this reviewer’s opinion – one of the greatest anime series to come out in recent history. ...Read MarkoSinadinovic's full review

updated their review of Ninja Scroll
I'm of two minds about this movie. One one hand, Ninja Scroll features the fastest, most fluid, and best animation outside of Akira that I have ever seen. The plot is intriguing, the fights way cool, and the characters bizarre and perversely interesting. On the other hand, Ninja Scroll also...Read MarkoSinadinovic's full review

updated their review of Serial Experiments Lain
Serial Experiments Lain is really something else. I was very much intrigued right after watching the alternative MTV-style introduction sequence. Lain dares to be different from the usual anime formula, and I find that quite refreshing. The plot focuses on the connection between the real...Read MarkoSinadinovic's full review

updated their review of Princess Mononoke
Princess Mononoke is one of the highest grossing films in Japanese history, and newspapers and Internet sites have been singing its praises ever since it came out. Naturally, when I had the opportunity to view a fansub of this, I had to see it, even if it was a fuzzy third-generation tape. I...Read MarkoSinadinovic's full review

updated their review of Nana
Up until now, Yazawa Ai's works have not received the greatest treatments in their manga-to-anime adaptations. Paradise Kiss and Neighborhood Story both received lukewarm reception from fans, and the same attitude towards NANA preceded its premiere. Just six months earlier NANA ...Read MarkoSinadinovic's full review

updated their review of Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust
I had seen the original Vampire Hunter D a few years back, and to be honest, I was not really impressed with it. I found that it lacked the suspense and excitement I was looking forward to, and the characterization left something to be desired. Fortunately, Bloodlust does manage to surpass its...Read MarkoSinadinovic's full review

updated their review of Akira
<div style="line-height: 115%;">I had heard a good number of positive things about Akira way before I got to watch it... but then who hasn't? I'm always skeptical about over-hyped anime, thanks in no small part to my disappointing experience with "Ghost in the...Read MarkoSinadinovic's full review

updated their review of Le Portrait de Petit Cossette
I was intrigued by Le Portrait de Petit Cossette. The cover artwork was striking, the description interesting, and best of all of the episodes are on a single DVD. It was a winning combination, or so it seemed. Le Portrait de Petit Cossette actually has a very simple plot. A young man...Read MarkoSinadinovic's full review

updated their review of Wings of Honneamise
I always feel a sense of intimidation when reviewing something that's a. critically acclaimed; or b. considered a "classic". Just my luck that Royal Space Force: Wings of Honneamise happens to be both. With my younger brother's incessant warnings about falling asleep in mind, I watched...Read MarkoSinadinovic's full review

updated their review of Tokko
My first exposure to Tokko was not a pleasant one. After finishing the first episode I decided it was in my best interest to stop watching. There were just too many things working against it. The dub was average to below average, depending on the character, with a number of off and...Read MarkoSinadinovic's full review

updated their review of Animatrix
Before anything else, I have to say that it's a must to have watched The Matrix (although not necessarily Matrix Reloaded) in order to have a good understanding of The Animatrix. All the episodes are anchored in the world presented in The Matrix, and a chockfull of references abound to events...Read MarkoSinadinovic's full review

Let's all take ... a BIIIIIIG ol' acid trip! At least, that's the general feeling I got after watching this title. Boy, I thought I had seen some weird stuff, but this flick takes the cake! Well, first things first, I guess. The art and animation in this title are actually not too shabby...Read MarkoSinadinovic's full review

updated their review of Neon Genesis Evangelion - Death and Rebirth
This is nothing new to fans of the Evangelion TV series. While there are instances in which footage from the extra scenes released in Japan was included in Death & Rebirth, the scenes were minimal, but some of those scenes did lead into a bit more detail into the Evangelion saga. The first...Read MarkoSinadinovic's full review
