flyingtarantulas updated their review of Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone
Score 10/10

I've been an Evangelion fan for a long time. It was the first anime series that didn't even seem like it was anime to me. It seemed like an art film written by Freud, God, and Anno. So, when I heard they were re-doing the series, I raged. "They're gonna screw up the story and the characters...

Brutal, disturbing, and funny. Ichi the Killer is a manga that will make you wonder if you should be disgusted or fascinated. The story is brilliant, told from a two-point perspective, and plays out like a detective story. A very, very violent detective story. Now, gore and violence doesn't...

Manhole is what happens when you mix detective stories, Japanese virus flicks, and disturbing imagery. It opens fairly dark, bleak, and weird. The story flows nicely, and doesn't hit any snags along the ways. Pretty soon after the opening, everything goes absolutely nuts, but not so much as to...
