Desert Punk

MAK2Hybrid's avatar
Aug 12, 2013

When first knowing about this anime and reading/watching other reviews of the series, it’s a space western that much akin to Trigun and there are some major comparisons to that show, which we’ll get into later and believe it as looking into Desert Punk, you’ll recognize some similarities to it.
In the future, Japan is a wasteland. In the Great Kanto Desert, scattered humans eke out a living in the hot sand. Among them, a short-statured man they call "Sunabozu (Japanese version)" or “Desert Punk (English Version)” – real name being Kanta Mizuno... See full review

Nurse Witch Komugi

Aug 12, 2013

Well, here’s the thing about this anime right here. This is a spinoff OVA to their sister series SoulTaker and yet I’m going in without watching the original series. From what I heard about the show, people absolutely hated it, mostly because they found the character Komugi was so annoying in SoulTaker, a whole OVA series that revolves around her would spell anger into a lot of fans, non-fans and even anime reviewers, especially a certain wolf/angel-based reviewer I know. *wink wink*.

Monster Rancher

So……usually, I don’t review anime shows this length but since I’m being blackmailed to it or a certain lynx will reveal my whereabouts to you-know-who, I should probably get started on this. Monster Rancher……Yes, I know the Japanese version of that is Monster Farm but today we are doing the English version that aired on the now-defunct (and fortunately) Fox Kids. Now it is based on a series of life simulation RPG videogames created by Tecmo (the company that brought you Ninja Gaiden & Dead or Alive) having over 14 games across different videogame...

Serial Experiments Lain

Aug 12, 2013

Well, just like when I reviewed Neon Genesis Evangelion back in January 2012, it’s time to look into another mind-fuck anime that was made in the ‘90s, only this time I’m revisiting the works of one writer named Chiaki J. Konaka and character designer Yoshitoshi Abe and yet their only other work I have ever reviewed is Texhnolyze and yet I felt like I couldn’t get into that anime but yet I wonder, what can be different about today’s review? Besides that this is only 13 episodes and it should a breeze to watch, it is still worth the mindfuck.

Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade

Aug 12, 2013

Now before reviewing this, I remember seeing this movie way back on premium movie channel Encore Action and as of today, I questioned why it was shown there considering the movie isn’t much on action but more focused through the drama and hardships of World War II, or in this case, it’s an alternate version of a post-World War II where Germany has taken over Japan, instead of the United States.

Well, you can say after the debut of Baccano! In Japan and possibly the states, you could say you hope to find more anime that’s similar to this with its’ large cast of enteraining characters and their larger-than-life wild and serial antics but luckily, this series is also adapted by a light novel from the same author Ryohgo Narita and is also made by the same animation company Brains’ Base.

Guilty Crown

Aug 12, 2013

Alright, I'll admit, this anime was pretty good. Good character development, lots of insight to the personal struggles of the main character (Shu). Songs were pretty nice too, and it invoked a lot more emotion than i thought it would. Only annoying bit is just that the beggining of the show is really...I don't know...annoying. It feels very stereotypical until episode 12 or so, when things really start to pick up. So a warning to the wise, if you begin watching this anime, do so with the understanding that the first half isn't all that great to watch. However, if you make it through that, the payoff is...

TWGOK is far better that the polt summary leads on,even when i first saw it, I thought to myself "how could this be any good!".In short the execution is pretty good.

TWGOK is about a guy(keima) trying to pursue girls.Basically he gets one girl than moves on to the next.It is arc- like for now.

One Piece

One Piece follows the story of Monkey D. Luffy trying to become the pirate king and going through adventures in order to fulfill this goal. Well... I find that One Piece works as a great anime for almost any demographic. Children watch, teenagers watch, and I know adults watching too, it's perfect. The overall plot is simple and easy to undestand, but not easy to achieve which allows for more than one trial, a trial that will always change because of the unique "Devil's Fruits." By not having more than one of any type, the fights can always take a different turn, allowing for a refreshing... See full review

Okay! Time to start off with this anime. Kamisama Hajimemashita, or Kamisama Kiss, is a rehashed anime. I don't know how i managed to get through this, but i did. Because i'm a good sport. Story(4/10)- One word; Rehashed.  A girl is stuck homeless. I've heard of that before. A girl meets a demon and has to work with him. Who hasn't heard of that one? A god is involved. Heard it before. A familiar is involved. Heard it before. To me, this story, even if you mash a homeless girl who meets a demon who is her familiar and becomes a god, it's not that original.  Animation(7/10) The animation was... See full review

A decent Shoujo. It basically this girl sent to the human world to fix problems and collect "healed hearts" to get her wish granted. Her kindness and innocence will rub off you. The way she gets hearts is simple and expected form the genre.Simple one- off sloutions where she sits down and talks sense into those she helps. Every body in the show may seem too naive and innocient for their own good, but there is some meaninigful tension for the show.  The characters you should look out for is Fujimoto.A contrast for kobato and where most of...

Sunday Without God

roriconfan's avatar
Aug 9, 2013

Here we are with another show with a very interesting setting and a very dull and randomly written plot. The premise is about God abandoning the world, which in the context of the story means no more people can be born. It also means no people die when they are killed *smirk*. They turn to zombies who act normally for awhile and only those with special powers can put them to eternal rest. Enter Ai, our heroine, an oblivious loli traveling the world looking for answers to all this mess.

… And that is literally all there is to it. It is one of those slow burner shows of the likes of Cashern... See full review

Training with Hinako

Slanderous's avatar
Aug 8, 2013

If you ever needed motivation to work out, or just motivation to 'work out' then 'Training with Hinako' will fit your taste. Basically it a girl named Hinako who somehow gets transported to the anime world and then decides to shape up to be in a role for an unknown anime.  Yes that is the plot. But the plot is not the question here and I think its unfair to judge it for the plot. What the creators intended was to strictly make a work out show, so it is understandable that the narrative is non-existent. But I think it accomplishes it's goal, make you want to work out or such.

I just deleted this review partway through writing it. I have to learn. Story: One day a girl wakes up not remembering anything. A floating harlequin appears before her and claims to know everything about her. And instead of doing the logical thing like blaming the events on LSD or something, Heroine (we never get her name—more on that later) believes what Orion (that’s Pennywise the Clown gone shota) tells her. Oh, and before I go any further in ripping this show to threads, it is based off of an OTOME GAME. OTOME GAME. OTOME GAME. OTO—don’t make me say it again. Basically... See full review

What I Liked: Just as beautifully animated as the first. The set design for Paradise and Eggnog Blue. Great soundtrack. The character designs. The costume designs for the casino portion. Bell Wing.

What I Didn't: The middle third felt slow. The effects in the poker and the roulette scenes seemed over-the-top and dated. The constant egg references are starting to get stale. The abrupt ending.

Final Verdict: Noticeably more relaxed and less heavy than the first movie, this aesthetically pleasing sequel positions itself as less a Cyberpunk action flick and more a science-fiction... See full review

This is the sixth Naruto Shippuden movie.  In this movie we see Sakura parents, and I think that kind of interesting because we never see her parents.  I wish we can see some of the Konoha Eleven parents in the future show or film because I want to see Rock Lee parents look like.  The plot is very interesting, the plot is where Madara sent Naruto and Sakura to an alternative reality.  And at the alternative reality everything is different, everyone they know are exact oppisite of each other, my favorite is Hinata.  Also in this reality Naruto Parents are alive, and Sakura parents is...

Story: Grading Kagaku na Yatsura's story is like grading the story of a porno: You ain't watching it for plot, characters, depth, sensibility or humanitarianism filled morality with a moral, you're watching it for the porn. That is the case right here, because the random chapters they plucked out of the cleavage of the manga is just that: Pointless, senseless, stupid, setting back woman's progress for 25 years and chockful of titties and milk, more than your daily recommended dosage. But I'll try, because that's what I'm here for: boob jokes. Plot, you don't give a fuck about that. The progress is stupid... See full review

My dear readers, please try to see this review with eyes unclouded by hate. Princess Mononoke is another film of the famous Studio Ghibli, which is the studio partially responsible for changing the way we see today's animated films, and in my humble opinion, it's magnum opus. Story :  9 / 10  "Great" The story takes place inJapan's Muromachi Period (15th century) and it portraits the state of constant changes of the relationship between man and nature.

This is a very odd show. Nanaka is a complete bitch as a 17-year-old, and yet as a little kid, she is so troublesome and odd little girl. Nenji is no better, being high strong and easy to get into fights. The story is rather cute even if it’s annoying in some places. At first, I thought it would be a real magical girl show but it seems that I was so wrong. The only thing magical girl about this show is the odd pieces every once in a while when they have a Magical Domiko pieces. I get why they have that breaking the episode, but it doesn’t make it any less annoying.

Oh boy… where do I start with this piece of crap? I guess I have to say, it’s not as bad as some sequels but this one is one of them. From the artwork to the voices, it just takes the cake. The story line is more like a stand alone show now, making each episode be Kazuki with a pretty girl. It turned into a date style show.

This had a lot less parody then the one before and less that had to do with the comic convention and manga creation. It turned more into a slice of life and sweetheart romance. In the end, I don’t really like the new change. It’s called Comic Party for a... See full review

Well, this is a show for the Otaku, the nerds of anime. When I first watched it, I was a newbie but now that I have watched a couple more animes, I actually get most of the references now. This show is what separates the large fans from the casual watchers. This was created based on a visual novel and video game (much to my surprise) and yet luckily, it isn’t fully following the date style game.

Each one is a otaku in their own way and have different ways of showing it whether it is being crazy about kimonos, to posting old men’s pictures into a scrap-book.

Her outfit is slightly less scandless then that of Naga but it’s got the same sort of feeling.

The story line is pretty flushed out but unfortunately, it falls into the magical girl story line. I say unfortunately because it was something I was hoping this would keep out. It didn’t need her turning into a 16-year-old to have the plot moving, just make her look somewhat 16 at the start of it! Another problem I had with the whole 12 to 16 aspect is that, how will her love actually know that its her when she is much older and her songs are pretty much generic to any girl in that age? It doesn’t magically work… like… *facepalm* you know what, all logic is thrown out the window... See full review

When you think of blacksmiths, you think of large, strong men who make swords, horseshoes and other appliances for a medieval world. What you normally don’t see is a kid doing all this with a smaller kid as an apprentice. That’s what happens when you watch this one.

The characters seem not fleshed out enough, and we barely see a back story to any of them except Luke and even that happens a little to late in the game. By that time, the characters felt a bit stale, and hard to relate to. In a 12 episode show, they shouldn’t be dinking around like they do, mostly bringing up jokes... See full review

She almost seems like she wouldn’t be the center of a reverse harem (those not understanding this, its when there are a group of guys for one girl instead of a bunch of girls for the guy… easy enough to get, right?) and pretty much not the type to be swooning over the boys.

It makes the story hilarious as he pretty much fails each and every mission he takes, or ends up fully injured. From the start, its hilarious with rather old man jokes or perverted images going so far as to show the privet parts of men although blurred slightly.

Having not seen the live-action show before, I don’t know if it does justice to the show or not but I have to say, I really like it any way and it does make me want to see the original show. The episodes all have to do with someone dying in a gruesome way, then the brothers’ end up being at the right place at the right time. Each show is its own storyline without many things to link them together. The story is slow, and not really action orientated. Many of the shows act more like detective shows where something odd happens and they discover why only to have a small action... See full review

Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (2009)

This is one of those strange little shows that to me; is a gem. If you start watching it, it might be rather strange because of the order that is given to you. The first episode 00 is not really the first. It’s the episode that the group makes later on in the show. A lot of shows are like that, in the wrong order. When it aired is a nonlinear way known as Kyon order. It almost makes no sense and so I suggest that you watch them in the Haruhi order which if you are looking at Kyon order number, it would be 2, 3, 5, 10, 13, 14, 4, 7, 6, 8, 1, 12, 11 and 9. What does piss me off though is that in 2009... See full review

This is a really fun show. I actually really like it even if it’s about something I’m not very interested in, dating sims... Now, I understand the leer that people have to them, guy gets girl with simple questions and answers. Unfortunately, that isn’t real life, and so I can never understand those that are stuck within the gaming world. That’s why this show is so hilarious to me and makes me want to keep watching this.

Keima is rather strange and interesting character, only interested in video game girls instead of real ones. The strange thing is, when he actually goes for... See full review

Dark Side Cat

Aug 6, 2013

Darkside cat is a strange, interesting show. It’s pretty much about a rebel humanoid cat that gets in trouble a lot with the law. In the course of one evening, chasing after a mouse, he breaks a fire hydrant, creates a traffic jam, and runs from the police. Now this show doesn’t really follow Dark Side cat but really what happens because of his interactions with the people of the city.

He himself is always silent with the same ‘bad boy’ look in his eyes and yet there are times that he actually does seem nice, mostly to the cats around the area. Each story can mostly stand... See full review

Oh wow… That was what I first felt when I started watching this show. This is not the show I had originally planned on seeing but when I did end up seeing it, from the very first episode, it just gave me chills. And then… the comedy hit. Now this wasn’t a bad thing really, it was just unexpected. I went into this story without any history behind it or any way of knowing what it was about and the first part of the show was so serious.

Now I love the characters, even if they are pretty much stereotypes. Now I keep saying stereotypes but its more like stereotypes but its more about... See full review

I started watching it and in first impressions, I did wonder what the hell I was watching. It’s heard to rate something that does not have a definite feel to it and this one seemed almost all over. It’s a slice of life with a lot of other things mixed into it and it just feels… off a bit. It’s not bad, but its not good ether leaving it in what I call no mans land along with a couple others that I have watched. The characters are rather likeable, Oji not really being my all time favorite but I think it really wasn’t created for my age or gender. This feels more like it was made... See full review

Sherlock Hound

I love this anime ever since I got it from my local Library. I found it by accident while looking for a different video (which seemed to not actually be there) and so picked it up.

At first, I thought this was going to be serious like all the other Sherlock Homes creations out there but this is like a children’s version of the story. It feels strange to see Professor Moriarty actually taking part in the crimes instead of just having his henchmen doing it. It pulls away a lot from the normal story line with the difference that each show can pretty much be standing on its own and you... See full review

I went into this with no expectations what so ever. I had never heard of this one before and didn’t do my normal research for it so had no idea what I was getting myself into. All I knew was that it was of the supernatural and so wanted to see this for myself.

The story starts out with a woman, Megumi Shimizu, that died and then goes back about 11 days before she died. The whole time, it felt like a mystery like When They Cry and I think that’s why I fell in love with it more. Now I didn’t like this character very much when she was alive. She was a total bitch in every since of the... See full review

Those Who Hunt Elves II

Wow… this is, um, different. It feels that they sort of ripped off Slayers and Lost Universe with the different dimensions that the characters cross over. Hoe a high school girl gets her hands on a tank, not to mention all the guns and ammo she has, I will never know. Not to mention, she actually knows how to use them well. Jumpei is really freaken stupid and does tick me off. I have heard of stupid macho men but he is the worst I have really ever seen. And Airi is so high and mighty about being a actress, though she does have a kind side, it just a little off. And yet… it feels like it all... See full review

Wow… this is, um, different. It feels that they sort of ripped off Slayers and Lost Universe with the different dimensions that the characters cross over. Lets talk about the characters, shall we? There is a young high school girl named Ritsuko who seems to have a tank and tons of guns and ammo. How a high school girl gets her hands on a tank, not to mention all the guns and ammo she has, I will never know. Not to mention, she actually knows how to use them well. Her character is a bit duncy and slightly annoying at times because she is a natural high school student with a military fedish... See full review
