Ghost Hound

on



Story:
Ghost Hound is one of the shows that is mildly entertaining, but never really captivates you. The story is semi-interesting, but really leaves something to be desired. Essentially, the story was never fully explained and it takes away from the quality of the story as a whole. I can say there was real potential here, it just never follows through. As the story progresses it also kinda casts aside the horror elements and it turns into more of a drama/mystery. The plot for the show is definantely watchable though. On another note, this shows deals a lot with psychology, and how the... See full review

FLCL

Warning - Contains Spoilers Fooly Cooly a coming of age tale where nothing unusual ever happens... at all... 




Story: Once again I find myself on the weird side of anime, watching FLCL, also know as Fooly Cooly. Fooly Cooly is actually a very misleading title, if I had to rename it,  "What the fuck is going on?" would be a much more appropriate label. As far as the actual story goes; it's way to random to even discribe it. I actually just looked up at my display picture of smoking Spike, and I understand his pain entirely. It... See full review

Me after 10 Minutes of Mindgame...
Story:
You know what? I'm not even gonna bother trying to explain the story, instead i'll explain what I did for the 20 minutes following watching Mindgame. 1. Stare at blank screen for 5 minutes in complete silence 2. Open my piss-warm beer 3. Consume said beer 4. Light Ciggarette 5. Open another beer 6. Blame Mindgame for my sudden interest in alcohol Seriously guys, if I filmed myself for an hour and a half, got high on acid, and played naked twisted with rabid badgers it would make more sense than this...

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood

on

Warning - Contains Spoilers

Story: FMA brotherhood has an incredible plotline. It's unpredictable, interesting, and incredibly original. There really isn't much I can say about the story that hasn't been said at some point, but straight up, this show completly deserves the praise it gets. I can also truly respect that they relaunched the anime and followed the manga, as opposed to it's predecessor. On a side note, all of my roommates have the brotherhood emblem tatted on them, with the exception of myself. If that doesnt give you an idea of how great the show is, than I don't know what...

Highschool of the Dead OVA

Warning - There's absolutly nothing I could possibly spoil...
Story: huh? I didn't even realize there was a story. I'll give it a courteous .5 for making me laugh at the beggining. This OVA has absolutly no coorelation to the story what so ever. In fact, where the fuck did they even get the raft from? Nothing is explained. And the show goes from Ecchi to borderline Hentai. Regular High School of The Dead was about as much as I could tolerate, this is just... well let me summarize. We went from this.... To this..... And believe me when I say that is the less graphic part of that... See full review

Warning - Contains Spoilers
Story: I would like to start this review by saying this is the one exception I've ever made to "Ecchi" type animes. Why? cause like most Americans, I enjoy watching zombies be killed. No but honestly, I actually like the story... yeah, I'm sure your thinking yeah ok buddy... But truthfully, it was a fun show to watch. The ecchi scenes are pretty funny, and I can respect that. The action scenes are cool. Theres not a whole lot of substance to the plot line, but hey it could be worse. Essentially, high school gets overrun, a group of students band together and...

As pathetic as it makes me feel, this show actually has a very unique plotline. And best yet, it has a conslusive ending. Essentially, the creators made a magical girl show.... with witches... and a lot of death. Props for that. I remember two episodes in I was starting to feel like I needed to wear some masscara (typo) and a much tighter skirt.... I mean, I felt like I needed to wear a skirt... ignore that...

Deadman Wonderland

Warning - Contains Spoilers
Story:
Deadman Wonderland is badass. Simply put. It's about a kid who fights deathmatches with other murderers. The prison is an amusement park. And the back story is really deep (if you've read the manga). Best part is they use there blood as weapons. Now, I'm very crass, and very strange, I have a unique fondness for blood. I know what your thinking, that's a sure sign of a serial killer; but It aint like that I promise. And for the record I'm not a cutter either, I just like blood. Now that you think I should be in a mental ward the reason I inform you of this... See full review

GANTZ

on

Warning - Contains Spoilers
Story: The plotline for Gantz is actually really original, and pretty cool. However, it automatically looses a point for having an open ended ending. I'm getting a bad case of shotgun-diarrea from shows that don't end conclusively. Moving on though, the other holes in the story are simply the lack of explanation. I have no idea who/what GANTZ is, or how he got there. And this series really tosses logic out the window a lot, but hey, what do I know. Also, as the story progresses, it really just gets bizzare near the end. The last arc was completly inferior compared to... See full review

Welcome to the NHK!

Warning - Contains Minor Spoilers Story: Welcome to the NHK! Full of laughs, drama, and Hentai games. That's the recipe you need for a great show. Honestly, I didn;t expect much coming into this show, but I was quite surprised. The story is actually quite simple, yet it's very well drawn. In short it's about a guy who's a need. In other words, a guy who never leaves his house. And that's pretty much the premise of the show. The show is actually quite funny, I got a lot of good laughs out of it. Furthermore, the conversations and theories presented throughout the show are actually very... See full review

Story:
Paranoia Agent presents you with a very unique interesting plot, that completly distorts your concept of reality. Hats off to the directors for originality. The only problem is that the story is incredibly fuckin stupid. Words cannot describe how incredibly stupid the plot turned out to be. I've always passionatly hated shows that do this to you, they string you along for 90% of the show and than troll you with the dumbest explanations ever. I'll give this section a decent rating solely because it was original and interesting for awhile.... but seriously... See full review

Story: Trigun truly has a great story, and it is quite original in my opinion. I'm convinced that the game borderlands is based off this show. The bandits on a desert planet.... Idk, that's what it reminds me of. Anyways this series had some pretty unpredictable plot twists, which I give it props for. For instance, once I pieced together why it's called... See full review

Linkin Park: Breaking the Habit

Story: When I first came across this pretty number I was like "Whaaaaaaaaa?" Linkin Park is on anime planet? I thought it was an injustice that the best 3 minute anime of all time does not have a review. For straters I'm not even entirely sure if this is technically considered "anime"; but in the end, it doesn't even matter... Yeah, I just went there. Anyways, the storys kinda cool, it almost reminds me of the movie Memento in a way. And evidentally, it is actually a pretty personal song.

I actually googled what happens in this show, and if you want a good laugh you should follow in my footsteps. There are literally thousands of theories. Essentially it's about a girl named Lain, who exists in the real world, but she's a god in another... Except there is no real world? I have no idea.

Warning - Contains Spoilers Higurashi season 2... First let's recap season 1....

Story: Funny images aside, the story was actually a bit dissapointing. If you watched season 1 of Higurashi you would know how absolutly vital it is to watch the second season, but to be blunt the delivery isn't nearly as good. While I was very greatful for some answers, I was expecting more insanity. And that's what the season two plot really lacks. The series gets a bit softer and it drastically takes away from the shock value. Not to mention the logic kind of flies out the window at times. Overall the story... See full review

I have an image that sums up this OVA pretty nicely..... Story: To be honest, they're isn't much of a story. More of the same really, just with a lot less impact on the viewers. I do give the creators credit though. It gives the fans a little more Higurashi, with a decent story. Still, don't expect much from the OVA. This is regarded as the 3rd season of the series, but truthfully it has no correlation with the storyline at all; or at least it's very minimal. Still though, It's not terrible. Fan serviced or not.

When I first started watching this show, I didn't have the slightest clue as to what to expect. And it almost lulled me to sleep, as it appeared just like any other kid's show... I couldn't have been anymore wrong. The hsow drastically changes back and forth between your Saturday Morning Cartoons and the next Friday the 13th film. Some of these scenes were just; gruesome. But I loved it, it was captivating. And at episode 4 the show has a relatively... See full review

Warning - Contains Spoilers (Sorta) Lets be honest, there will never be an introduction to a show as iconic as this. Story: The story for Cowboy Bebop is far from amazing, but it is amazingly brilliant. It's simplicity is unmatched by any other show I've ever watched. The premise of the show is about a very interesting group of bounty hunters; well, being bouty hunters. The actual plot of the show does have a little substance which is definantly a plus. At the same time though, it doesn't need a complex story. It's just simply enjoyable to watch. Not to mention, the simplicity creates an... See full review

The plot to this series is very complicated, which is probably the most notable part of the show. It's actually very hard for me to give an honest assesment of how good the story is because it's very strong in some areas and god awful in others. The show is meant to be taken seriously, and is praised for it's realism; so i'll be... See full review

Initially I was pretty happy to watch a sequel to the brilliant Higurashi series, but I was horribly mistaken... allow me to elaborate.... Story:  I think the only reason I give it a 1 out of 10 is because I would feel guilty giving it a worse rating. To be completly blunt, there is no story; at all. Two words can sum up this OVA; FAN SERVICE. And to be honest, normally I dont mind fan service; I prefer my woman 3D but hey, I won't complain. The problem I had with this is that all the characters are children. There what, 12? 13 if they had an early birthday? I felt dirty watching this OVA... See full review

Warning - Contains Spoilers Story: The story to this movie was very dull, in my opinion. In a way, I can certainly feel for the characters, however at the same time it was kind of nonsense. Let me elaborate a bit, the main characters mother dies, and he decides to grieve by doing flips on the monkey bars and laugh about the situation. His father dies, and he doesn't show remorse than either. Than his little sister dies; who is clearly the only person our protagonist cares about; and he still doesn't shed a tear. Aside from that though, what made this movie exceptionally dull is that 80% of the film is... See full review

Story:
The story of Hellsing is absolutly obsurd. That's the best way I can possibly describe it. The story starts out exceptionally strong, and if I were merly reviewing the first 3 episodes, I would be inclined to give it an 8.5 or 9 for this section. However it seems like after this point in the OVA, the authors hired a street vendor to load a gun with plotlines, shoot them about, and pick them up randomly. Eventually the main premise of the show becomes Hellsings vs. Nazi's Vs. Irish/Catholics... to make matters worse there is virtually no back... See full review
