    Dracula sovereign of the damned is a prime example 70's cheese, and it has a layer of cheese from the American comics it's based on, and has a huge brick of Velveeta melted on it with the dub. (the movie is 1980, but it's still very under the domain of the 70's)

    Animation wise film is like any other anime of that time, it has heavy American influences, but still has the Toei flavour of that decade.

    Story is very weird, and all over, then again it's hard to keep a smooth narrative when you shove comic series that ran 70 issues from 1972 to 1979 into a 90 minute film.
    Digging a bit found out more. The original series called The tomb of lord Dracula released under Marvel comics, and had a much longer narrative, more characters and each character had a much more expanded back story. Also another tidbit is this was one of the first comics with vampires after the US comic book code of 1954 was re-advised and relaxed in 1971, figures from horror were outright banned before that.

    Sound 2
    Animation 2.5
    Plot 1.2
    Hamburger Dracula made it a 100 out of 5 though.

    Very Private Lesson

    This reminds me of Wild 7, in that the first episode was rad and the second episode was bunk. The disparity increases with the increasing dumbness of everybody involved, the introduction of two dumbass ugly thot gyarus without a pair of braincells between them, a villain who is a true villain called... Ken the Devil, more dumbshit and man... I couldn't believe it. But the first episode, that was good in comparison. Decent progression, some good tunes, no dumb ass bitch gyarus, and it's just bad, not terrible and with a... volatile dub that fluctuates in quality like a politician flip-flopping.

    This sounds like the title of a porno.

    I thought the same thing, especially with the cover and felt cheated it wasn't a shitty ass pron. It was basically a hentai without the hentai scenes.

    Darkside Blues

    Boring and slow, but slightly interesting.
    Ok, that one dude flipping rockets with his knife was cool.

    1.5/5 (somewhat bad)

    Darkside Blues
    This was good whenever it: focused on the blues, letting us hear some sweet jams and delicious overproduced licks; had Darkseid talk in the Japanese version (we switched back and forth); and when it just gave us silly-ass action. Sadly, all those moments combined were less than a tenth of the running time, and it was a tortuous wankfest with shite metaphysical quandaries throughout. The more it purported to explain, the more jumbled it all got.


    May @Zed60K be rotten to the very last molecule for ditching us, even when he was the one suggesting this.

    I think you vastly overestimate the sense of camaraderie amongst us backstabbin' freebooters that make up the loosely affiliated group that is the DTAB cadre.

    Rokudenashi Blues

    It's faithful to the manga, with the classic facial expressions, reaction shots, punching, boxing, Good-For-Nothing Blues, it's the good shit. And the commercial for Sailor Moon Karaoke afterward? That was so tops.

    It had expressions, Daisuke Gouri, pompadours, but it lacked... heart. And more subs and wacky antics. It was basically one of the lesser fights from the manga turned anime.

    5 girls with ponytails that are long overdue out of 10.

    Since I am a bastard, I won't give props for the lit Karaokebox commercials after the end credits.

    I wanted to watch some delinquents and the commercial at the end? That was worth so much extra points. But you not being there is so overdue.

    Gude Crest - The Emblem of Gude

    Nothing great or terrible. Just a couple of displaced princesses being heroes.

    Needed more/better action.

    Gude Crest: The Emblem of Gude

    Further proves that @Zed60K picks shit and doesn't even show up for his shit because he's a beta normie puss. But it was pretty shit.

    2.5/10 or something, still pretty shit.

    Gude Crest: further proof that Zek shouldn't pick titles
    Man, what a pile of crap. Some floof and weird fantasy clothing aside, there was very little saving this. Its 43 minutes felt like 100, and the plot, such as it is, actively repelled me.

    3 bare legs out of 10

    Battle Royal High School

    Demon faries.
    Giant teddybears.
    Mech suits.
    Naked girls.
    Exploding trees.
    Blue... muscles.

    This anime has it all!
    This was kinda awesome.

    That ending though... walk-in-misunderstanding. LOL sort of perfect for this.

    It has three weird plot threads at once, but even while being crammed, there is little sense of progression and flow to the story. We have three protagonists, at least two villains, a lot of moving parts (technically), but it all feels pretty static and it all just peters out towards the end. Nice gore and shitty animation though. It throws caution to the wind and just becomes a mix of awful OVA rape and seriously cheesy high school shenanigans.

    2 people standing behind you like perverts out of 5.

    Vampire Wars

    Enough action to make you forget there are vampires.
