Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos

on Jan 26, 2012

The movie does in my opinion what alot of anime manages to do, and that is over-narrate itself at times.. (the whole thing where instead of just shooting the guy in the face, the guy with the gun explains why he's gonna shoot the other guy..) not enough to annoy, but enough to be noticeable..

It gives a minute or two for some of the main backstory of the Elric brothers as to why they are Armour and limbless, which is fine. Since it allows those who've not yet seen any of the series/movie before (the person I went with) to get a handle on "WTF ROBOTMAN Y U GOTS NO BODY?!?!"

Crying Freeman

on Aug 27, 2011

So I've been on an 80's 90's kick lately so anyone not in the mood for an amusingly cheesey show will probably find it rather lame...so if you're in the mood for a show that has deep and moving plot or something like that..move on. GENERAL:
This whole show is like a collection 70's or 80's cheesy action B-movie greatest hits..

So...Stray you say its cheesy..?

Was it violent? Arny would be Proud.

Was there nudity? SWEET JESUS HAVE MERCY

Was there sex? ...MUST NOT FAP...!!!!!!!!!!!!

As a whole I'm not sure if there was more nudity and sex, or action and killing... See full review

Hanaukyou Maid Team: La Verite

on Jan 14, 2011

Hanaukyo Maid Team: La Verite is a virtually a remake of Hanaukyo Maid Team and it is supposed to have a better worked ending than the original so i chose to watch this one instead... well this story begin with the main character Taro Hanaukyo inheriting a ridiculous ass ton of money from his grandfather, including an estate sized home and what appear to be upwards of at least 200 maids,so theirs ecchi and some occasional nudity..that being said the whole show is quite a romp o'fun and the comedy aspect in the animation is spot on. character development is somewhat minimal. this is a good...

Patlabor WXIII

on Jan 4, 2011

This movie has the same general plot/feel as a Godzilla movie but with a bit of detective mystery thrown in. It is a side story to the Patlabor series and takes place in between the frist and second movies. And from not having watched any of the ova's, series or movies before watching this,(i will soon though!) i will go ahead and say that this movie should be considered a stand alone story within the patlabor franchise since the charcaters from the show/ova's/moives didnt make an appearance until the ending.So im not sure how fans of the series will take this movie. But seeing it with the stand alone point... See full review
