Jubei-chan 2

Feb 11, 2013

The BEST thing about this series (and in a way about the first installment) is the theme music, truly marvelous. It is possible to watch this series without the first, which in a way is more recommendable, sometimes the plot line diverts into a character driven situational irony, and that seems to be kind of annoying as you go along. I can recommend this is you like cardcaptors and sailor moon but with a ninja theme. It was alright, but like I said, the theme music was the best i've heard ever.

Cardcaptor Sakura: The Movie 2: The Sealed Card

Nov 14, 2012

Ruined everything. The plot sucked, the voices changed (since I saw the dub), the character's personalities were completely trampled by the whole corny and cheesy theme.

Cardcaptor Sakura

Nov 13, 2012

I wanted to kick myself when I first began to watch this, but after watching the whole thing, I want to kick myself for actually thinking it was good. For its time it had some pretty good philosophies to offer, still, its a shame that people relied on mediocrity to interpret these meanings. The comic relief in the show helped keep interest, the switch of personalities were what actually drew me in, I especially liked Kiroberos and Spinner's little rivalry. Anyways, being an anime that I never would've guessed would be good, I actually recommend it.

Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos

Jun 25, 2012

You'll have to forgive me for not making this review an entire novel, but I prefer to be clear and make my reviews short. Now, onto this movie, which I had waited a long time to finally see (english dub). The story was, mediocre. It clung on to the same principle and tried to over-use the whole "change the world to make it a better place" theme. Ed and Al were still awesome, but here, the relationship they shared with other main characters, like Roy Mustang, was terribly morphed. I know that in the actual series there was never a true established friendship, but in the movie it almost seemed like... See full review

Yu-Gi-Oh! 3D: Bonds Beyond Time

Jun 21, 2012

I've never been too fond of people defending the old due to the narrow mentality that everything pos-modern sucks, however, I choose not to have watched GX or 5Ds of the yugioh saga because of the fact that the cliche representations of good versus evil just outweight the regular cardgame, as it nearly did with the oriiginal. The story sucked due to its quick-paced slap-in-the-face telling that made everything run by too quickly, no to mention the lack of imagination when it came to the overall duel. The amount of monsters used was minimal and all the strategies did was kill and bring back and bury and then... See full review

Yu-Gi-Oh! Movie 2: Pyramid of Light

Jun 11, 2012

Hell of a blast from the past. I remember seeing this movie on PayPerView way back when it had recently come out. The cliche thematics of good and evil, heart of the cards and that cheesy friendship theme has always brought the story down, but I have to admit, this whole series and card game (and all they entail) do have one hell of an imagination towards their monsters. I used to have a bunch of great cards when I play, sucks that I gave them away like a total goddamned idiot. But as to the movie, its a pretty good way to remember your childhood and feel like a kid again.

Ride Back

Apr 5, 2012

It was a good story, nice and short and to the point. For some reason it kept reminding me of the great anime Blassreiter. The story revolves around corrupt governments and officials and tyrrany and such, however, the evolution of the plot was quite interesting. It had a few in-your-face ironies and such, but one thing I never expected was the development of such gore and bloodshed. One of the characters that died actually hurt me, I would've preferred her to stay alive, but it did make for a better story. I recomend this to mecha and military fans. Its a great way to pass the time. I'll probably keep it in... See full review

Destiny of the Shrine Maiden

Mar 18, 2012

It really sucked. Now, one can't really tell from the first episode what the type of definitive genre will be, a love story or a mecha battle history or something else. But really it was so cheesy its enough to leave you constipated for an entire year. It had pointless and endless talks, talk talk talk about love or questioning why love or not knowing why love. Love really was the main moral of the story, everything else just falls by the wayside. It really isn't an anime I would recommend, unless your into sailor moon type stuff, then you might like it. Wasn't good, not at all, but oh well, I already saw... See full review

Tears to Tiara

Feb 18, 2012

Saw the dubbed version, so firstly i'd like to diss on their atempts on sounding irish/scottish, whatever, it wasn't necessary at all. The story was too common for my tastes, a lot of animes have this kind of fighting for liberty plot, didn't really draw me in. As for the characters, they spoke way too long when they weren't suppose to, their castle is being torn down and the first warrior dude is yapping like crazy. Apart from that it did have a few good moments, but very few. Story didn't really pick up until about episode 6. I wouldn't highly recommend it, but if your into knights and sword fights and...

Steel Angel Kurumi Zero

Feb 4, 2012

I loved the three before this and thats why I watched it, expecting a bit of alternative stories where the plot didn't thicken, but it might've given me another reason to love these steel angels. But it completely changed, they didn't fight, they were already awakened, they were only high schoolers. I don't know, I guess I was expecting a bit more. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone, it really is only for diehard fans.

Gun x Sword

Dec 20, 2011

I had a blast watching this anime. I really liked it, it was an old west type deal anime but only in the environment, for some reason it doesn't give off so much gun action as opposed to the mecha action. And the "entrance" that has to be done each the giant robot comes out doesn't really wear you down as opposed to other entrances or transformations like digimon frontier. Van is a badass and Wendy is so awesome. It really helps to kill some time. I'd recommend it if your looking for the type of anime with a journey where a character must discover himself to save himself.

Appleseed: Ex Machina

Dec 20, 2011

Great movie, you can watch this without having to see the first. The story and plot are kind of overrated, some dude sees humanity as a waste of time and he wants to unify it into one consciousness, eh, however the means by which this is attempted do make the story a tad unique. It has a fair amount of situational comedy and great suspense as to the fates and destinies of each character. I'd recommend this to mecha and military genre fans.

Okay, I watched the whole thing, and all I have to say is that it sucked. Really sucked. I swear that the first episode it took about ten minutes for the first word of the whole series to be uttered, and then it was another four minutes of silence. Another review I read said to start after the twelth episode, and if you have nothing better to do I would recommend that aswell. The story line sucked because it kept jumping back and forth from one thing to another and it left a whole bunch of holes in the story. Definitely not my cup of tea...wouldn't recommend it...

Digimon Frontier

Dec 12, 2011

I watched this anime again because I grew up on this stuff, it was more nostalgia than anything else. But nonetheless I would give it a 5 overall, not to give it too much props but also not to throw it on the ground and step on it, that would just be mean. As far as the story goes, I mean yea, heroes have a bunch of obstacles to overcome including each other and such, i've heard some people complain about the lame story, come on guys, its for kids, if its too intricate it will lose its simplicity. Characters are all right, the digimon overlap and such, the warriors were pretty cool. Being as how its a bit... See full review
