Eve: Flower Storm

Dec 25, 2023

I love these music videos. It's amazing that a small group of people can tall such a vibrant, fantasy story in just 4+ minutes. Vibrant is just the word to describe this; the color and energetic flow of the art matched the flow of the song beautifully.

Eve: White Snow

Dec 25, 2023

In five minutes and forty-seven seconds, this music video tells a stunningly beautiful love story. The lover's expressions, the perfect scene sellections, and details tell the story without saying a word. And wait until after the ending credits for a nice detail is seen. The black swan and the blond have exchanged braids of hair; one black and one white.

Another World (2019)

Nov 22, 2023

Another World blends dreary pastel colors with the cheeriness of crayon outlines. It lulled me into a false sense of security before dropping a bomb that shocked me.  The story of reincarnation is not a new one, yet this one will hang with me for a while. The art, music, and simplicity of the story blends together well. I'm glad I found it.  PG-13 Cannibalism

The Garden of Words

Oct 11, 2023

I was bored and disappointed with this one. Nothing in the story made me care about the characters at all. We're given no reasons behind their goals, or any fleshed out blackstory to make the characters anything other then paper dolls moving on screen. From the age gap between the love interests, I was expecting for the story to make me want them to be together, but I ending hoping they never had any romantic interaction at all because it still felt creepy at the end. There was nothing that made me want or care to if this twenty-seven-year-old woman should be with this sixteen-year-old... See full review

Hell's Paradise: Jigokuraku

Aug 19, 2023

Hell's Paradise: Jigokuraku is a flashier, historical version of Attack on Titan without the politics. A generic monster-killing, blood-letting good time with banging sound tracks.  Our main lead, nearly immortal and overpowered murderer, Gabimaru the Hollow is sent with a bunch of other criminals to an achingly beautiful island hell in search of immortality.    *******<<<<<^^^^^^>>>>>******* There is not a whole lot to put in this review other than what's already in my headline. This series shares a lot of aspects with Attack on Titan. I will not do... See full review

Summer Ghost

Aug 11, 2023

Subtle and quietly inspiratinal. Questioning their lives and reasons for living, three teenagers are drawn together and seek out a ghost they believe commited suicide.  <><><><><><><><><><> Having just finished this movie, I'm left with the feeling this was an animated farewell letter from a dear friend.  The art is faded and the music is barely noticable, but I believe that is by design. The creators did not want to distract from the message.   This melancholy film should be on your watchlist. At only forty minutes, save... See full review

Pokemon: Twilight Wings

Apr 17, 2023

This delightful series of short stories is a nice introduction to the world of Pokemon. For life long fans that haven't followed the series for a long time, it's also a nice, inviting way to return. Seven episodic stories are sweet and inspirational for a young audience but enjoyable for all. It's an easy, quick watch with each episode only about 6-7 minutes long.  We mostly follow two boys in a childrens' hospital, John and Tommy. In episode 4: Early-Evening Waves, we also see young yet mature Nessa, beloved Galar region Gym Leader and model. The art and voice acting are miles ahead of the... See full review

Hakumei and Mikochi

Jan 23, 2023

🌸🍀🍁 Life can be hard when you're only 3 and 1/2 inches tall like Hakumei and Mikochi. 🍁🍀🌸 If you've ever enjoyed fairy gardens, been fascinated by the "little people," love nature, or you've had a hard week and want to relax, this wonderful anime may be for you. This is the anime to soothe a tired mind into a nap. It is the most relaxing, nap-inducing anime I've ever watched. That's meant as a compliment. It must be the best Iyasekei there is. Being episodic, you can jump in anywhere and enjoy it to the fullest.  PG-13. A tad... See full review

One Small Step

Jan 22, 2023

I'm very glad to have watched this sweet little film. If you like adorable shows that leave you with a fuzzy, good feeling, then this will please.  One Small Step is a wonderful inspirational short story about a young girl who wants to be an astronaut. The art style is cute and fits the story perfectly. It is a silent film, but there is background music. Everything comes together nicely for this short film. Family friendly.

Sounds wonderful, right?

"You ain't you when you're hungry. Have a Snickers." I watched this and thought, "Hmm, does that mean if you eat a snickers you turn into a giant monster?" Unless you know the context of the anime, this was not a good commercial to promote a candy bar.

The Missing 8

Sep 22, 2022

The Missing 8 takes place on a dystopian planet inhabited by androids. When given the Power of Eight, the androids recieve a soul. Poppy is fascinated by humans but her partner Punk-kun couldn't care less about them. They fight monsters by using her imagination as the basis for his transformation into weapons. One night a star falls from the heavens, bringing with it a human.  The anime uses minimal animation, similar to still-frame, but after a few minutes I barely noticed. The story and mystery doesn't give you time to dwell on the unique style. Plotting is fast paced, but balances out with a... See full review

Disney: Twisted-Wonderland - Octavinelle PV

Sep 21, 2022

This Promotional Video highlights the Octavinelle Overblot story. In my opinion, this was the best of the first three stories in the game. I hope they animate it.  By the way, for anyone wondering about the mobile game Twisted Wonderland, it has no romance in it at all. It's very much like Toukan Ranbu, a gatcha game where you collect in-game "cards" level them up and fight little battles to advence the stories. Although, the stories do take place at an all-boys school for magic, it's mostly comedic fantasy where you play in order to read/play the stories. Some people have the misconception...

RWBY: Ice Queendom

Sep 14, 2022

The alternate title to this anime should be RWBY: Ice Queen's Nightmare.  After finishing this, I can say it's worth the watch if you're a fan of RWBY. But for me, the characters are generic and the story is rushed so fast I got whiplash at the start of episode 4. After that it drags for the next five episodes. It was like watching a Dragonball Z fight that takes 5 episodes to charge up. 😩 The same scene was repeated three times. Twice would have been fine, but by number three I was thinking, "Not the sign post again." I haven't watched or read anything from the RWBY series before... See full review

BanG Dream! Morfonication

A sugary sweet 2-part special from the series BanG Dream.  Young highshcool girl, Mashiro "Shiro" Kurata writes songs for a violin rock band, Morfonica. But recently has lost her ability to "see" the lyrics.  This is some very cute, pastel-colored CGI art. I'm not a big fan of CGI art, but in this show it's done very well. The songs are very cute bangers, and I loved how detailed the backgrounds were.  PG-13. Family friendly.

Uta no Prince-sama: Maji Love Starish Tours Special is a prequal to the movie Uta no Prince-sama: Maji Love Starish Tours. This is 50 minutes of camping. Not much of anything happens. They relax and reflect.  If you like the guys, the series, and or the visual novel you may like this.  If you're looking for action, comedy, or romance, or plot, you won't find it here. Little to no conflict, nothing intreguing, and it's a completely uneventful camping trip. Not my cup of tea.  PG-boring.

I have great respect for the creators and artisans who put so much time and effort put into this, but I don't think I'll be watching anything like this again. I don't hate it at all, don't get me wrong, I just couldn't stop laughing. I knew their little arms were controlled by sticks! I couldn't help but feel second-hand embarrassment. Again, I'm sorry.

Knights of Ramune

Aug 14, 2022

Retro girl+girl fanservice, robots, spaceships, orgasmic abilites; as the little squishy sidekick says in the show, "Not for young viewers." The girls pretty much have to get naked every time they use their powers.  The English version was released in 1999, so the art is retro with giant eyes, a lack of detail, and it feels like those old sci-fi B-movies from the 70s and 80s.  I first watched this back when I did not yet know what the term ecchi meant. And the cover art was not concerning. Well, now I know. \(〇_o)/ My young eyes....I... See full review
