Tatakau Shisho: The Book of Bantorra

on Apr 15, 2011

You are an Armed Librarian. Granted amazing powers, you have been recruited to represent the Library of Bantorra--a sacred duty that generations of Librarians have been protecting long before you. You are mortal enemies with the Shindeki Church, who will do anything to undermine you—including hollowing out the memories of fellow human beings and implanting them with bombs to kill you and your Acting director. And what is so special about the books in the Bantorra library as well as being an Armed Librarian, you ask?

The books kept safe in Bantorra’s sprawling, hazardous labyrinth... read more

Peace Maker Kurogane

on Nov 21, 2010

I can't remember if it was a recommendation to an anime I have already watched or liked, or if it was a user review that made me consider Peace Maker Kurogane. I know for certain that if it wasn't for Anime Planet, I wouldn't have discovered Peace Maker Kurogane and as such, wouldn't have given it a chance. I'm relatively glad that, despite some deep flaws I stayed with this show. I'll do my best to explain to you why I think it’s something you should add to your collection, too.   STORY Peace Maker Kurogane's story is set in Japan during the 19th century just before several revolutionary... read more

Michiko to Hatchin

on Nov 18, 2010

I didn't want to give Michiko to Hatchin a chance, I can fully admit that. When I began watching it I came to the series with a mighty wariness. It wasn't fantasy. It wasn't sci-fi. It wasn't medieval. It wasn't something I generally go for--on the surface Michiko to Hatchin sells itself short; you think you're probably getting yourself just another slice-of-life anime series that will leave you with warm, fuzzy feelings about life for a while and then you'll go on about your day and forget about it. And that's where Michiko to Hatchin sneaks up behind you, kicks at the back of your knees, takes you down... read more

Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro

on Nov 10, 2010

How can I begin to explain this wonderful, horribad, hot mess that is Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro to you--and why you really ought to give it a chance? I've no idea. Maybe it's personal taste. Maybe, after months of desperately searching for an anime series to fill the flap-gaping hole of quality my ancient soul desires, I've finally lowered my standards and let my hair down. Relax a little. Give something less than perfect a try. Chances are, that's not it though and I'll try my best to explain what appealed to me about Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro.  First, let's talk about the story. STORY To be... read more

Dance in the Vampire Bund

on Oct 4, 2010

Do you like vampires? Do you like werewolves? Do you like the Hellsing animation and manga? Do you like the Dracula legend? Do you like Twilight? Do you like Hellsing, the horrific movie featuring Hugh Jackman (Wolverine)? Do you like authors completely ignoring the fact vampires are dead creatures, and thus, cannot create life because...you know, men. Needing blood. And not as food. To do that thing that happens when life--happens. (Being polite after all, and PG-13ish.)? Now: Do you like it when they throw all of that junk in one fantastic trunk? Then look no further and do not read this review... read more

Eden of The East Movie II: Paradise Lost

on Sep 11, 2010

Eden of the East Movie II: Paradise Lost as a movie delivers the fan service and characters we've come to know and love via the series and first movie. It's another excellent, "Here are your favorite characters doing what they do best! Oh, those wacky shenanigans :D" --without revealing anything useful as to why they are doing what they are doing. Still. Again. For the third time. Story:The ORIGINAL SERIES tantalizes us with snippets of brief, delicious story, much like the well-rounded thigh peeking through a smokin' hot dress. There are elements of danger! Romance! Silliness! Danger... read more

Mahou Tsukai ni Taisetsu na Koto: Natsu no Sora

on Jan 11, 2010

Mahou Tsukai ni Taisetsu na Koto: Natsu no Sora was a bitter sweet tale of growing up mingled with touches of modern fantasy. The animation style is a strange mix of fantastic hand painted backgrounds, actual photos (which the series does not feel one bit ashamed of showing you half the background IS a photo); to nearly simplistic, child like renderings of the main characters. Everytime I thought the annoyingly simple character animations were going to put me off the series, the series hooked me in with yet another heart-warming slice-of-life episode. Although the sketchiness of the characters at... read more

Shangri-La

on Dec 12, 2009

You am watch dis for pretty; no watch for brain The year is some where in the future (stop me if you've heard this before,) and perhaps even an alternative time line where Tokyo has been destroyed by an earth quake and the forest has taken over most of the world--near violently in fact. There are strange new plants mutating to climb their voracious vines over the skeletal remains of sky scrapers and long gone restaurants, humanity struggles to fight off the forest, survive "bomb" like hail storms of rain and dreams of winning a chance to become part of Atlas. An elite company of soldiers... read more

Genji Monogatari Sennenki

on Dec 7, 2009

Genji monogatari sennenki was an immense, complete, gigantic waste of time. Cancel that. Let me rephrase--Genji monogatari sennenki is possibly one of the worst anime I have watched in a while. Except for Casshern Sins, but that's neither here nor there. Anyway-- She looks damn good. Her animation is both enchanting and ripe with the classic scenery, bright colors, bold patterns and poetic influences one should expect of a series set in its time period. She's pretty, in that before havin' babies, Britany Spears, one eye doesn't look quite right, but what the hell, it's blonde and it has hips kinda way... read more

Casshern Sins

on Dec 5, 2009

Dark, gritty environments composed of unfeeling and foreboding crystal stretch on seemingly endless against a storm-laden sky. Along the rising cliffs which seem to cut the horizon until it bleeds orange-red, there is the sense of forlorn hopelessness and unfriendly eyes watching every move--a sense of despair. This is, at least, the general atmosphere for Casshern Sins. Everything begins with a sense of sorrow and despair focusing around a main character who hasn't any idea of who or what he is, only that he has great power and that foreboding sensation that he may have done something horrific with... read more

Baccano!

on Dec 5, 2009

Ah, Baccano! This is a series which becomes an eclectic mix of good, bad, confusing, amazing and delightful all at once and somehow leaves you feeling somewhat satisfied after finishing...For reasons you don't quite understand. Baccano's story line is semi-complex; writing several characters which appear to have nothing to do with one another into a singular plot is no small feat. The cast of people in Baccano! aren't generally the kind that would normally spend time with one another--either by choice or by the distances which happen between people over time, yet the story does weave them all... read more

Blade of the Phantom Master

on Dec 5, 2009

Blade of the Phantom Master was one of those moments that you wished would live. Unfortunately, this was a still born cut short long before it could take its first wailing breath. Blade of the Phantom Master dangles many promises akin to the carrot dangling forever out of reach before the plodding turtle, overburdened with a moth-eaten plot that left me hand flailing at the screen asking the heavens, "why did that just happen? What--what did I just...What is this? I don't even..." And it is a crying shame, because the beginning sequences reek of a great story. In fact, the beginning lulls... read more

Kemono no Souja Erin

on Dec 5, 2009

Hurting your main character. As a story teller, it is one of the hardest things to do. We often grow attached to our creations and wish to see them suceed. We don't want them to suffer--everyone loves a perfect ending. But can you sympathize with a character whose life is perfect? Enter the masterful, often heart wrenching (and yes, some times sappy) story of Kemono no Souja Erin. The animation itself is a pleasant mix. Near-charcoal like textured outlines with water colored inspired shading gives this animation a simplistic feel, but the combination of unique buildings and intricate world seem... read more

Planetes

on Oct 21, 2009

Planetes is the typical coming of age, struggling-to-find-a-place-in life with self and friends story set in the not-so-typical back drop of space. Specifically, in one area that one could consider the least glamerous area of space to be covering. Planetes story isn't entirely new or original. It's a formula that we have seen before. A group of misfits that shouldn't really belong, who squabble or argue yet grow and mature with one another while facing the everyday--to the not-so-every day in space--troubles and tribulations life throws at them. No, the story might not be new, but the backdrop, the setting... read more

Canaan

on Oct 13, 2009

It was Canaan's animation which captured me at the very first episode and it was Canaan's animation which carried me through. The story presents itself in the beginning as something promising, a tight-knit plot which commands both action filled sequences, character building moments as well as heart wrenching twists. Unfortunately near the end of the series  several small plot holes left me with far more questions than answers. The series takes an absent, memory-misted glances on the pasts of each characters and dimly hints at certain motivations without really giving viewers enough to conclude... read more
