updated their review of Flag
Score 6.5/10

You may enjoy Flag because:    It's different.  There is always something interesting about watching an anime that makes an effort to step outside the box, even in cases where it's not 100% successful at what it's trying to do, and Flag is definitely worth checking out on that...

Initial Note:   This was watched for the 2013 Secret Santa exchange, so a quick thank you to my Santa for giving me a reason to check this out sooner than I would have on my own.  Good call! You will probably enjoy this series... if you enjoy smart science fiction with an...

updated their review of 009-1
Score 7.5/10

You may enjoy this series because of... its refreshingly "retro" style and and refreshingly "grown-up" sensibilities. On the "style" side of things, the series is modeled along the lines of a Cold War-era spy thriller, and the anime does a good job evoking...

updated their review of GANTZ
Score 3/10

You may enjoy Gantz because:  It's undeniably edgy and extreme.  Without a doubt, the main appeal of Gantz is the shock-value element (or "envelope-pushing", I suppose, depending on your POV).  Loads of ultra-violence, copious nudity and sexual scenarios.  Each...

updated their review of Starship Operators
Score 6.5/10

You may enjoy this series because: It's a relatively competent "young-people-in-charge-of-a-starship" series, so if space adventures and combat appeal to you, it's probably a good bet.  The story follows a group of cadets aboard the starship Amaterasu as they choose to use the...
