Summer 2017 Anime at the Halfway Point

I feel like this post is a little late, but it’s about time I put more opinions out about the summer season. At this moment, I think the season as a whole is just ok. I would still put Winter 2017 in a higher place over the spring and the summer, but that doesn’t mean…

Welcome to the Ballroom isn’t that great

If there is one thing that annoys me the most, it’s an over hyped series. I realize that all shows have some hype built around them when they first appear so people will pay attention to them and thus provide an audience. Still, there is the fact that some shows are more over hyped them…

Senpai Noticed Me: My Blogging Influences

Hi everyone, I’m back. If you haven’t noticed on my twitter feed a week and some change ago, the Sunday before last, one of my blog posts was quickly featured on one of Glass Reflection’s videos. In quick terms, this post was featured was featured in this video. I know that it was only there…

[OWLS post] Family Complications in Gundam 0079

Hello everyone. My Name is Scott and welcome to my first OWLS blog post. As you’ve noticed, my blogs named Mechanical Anime Reviews. While I do love mech anime, which is why I went with that title, I like posting about other things too. Variety is the spice of life. I’ve only joined recently, so…

Pros and Cons of Dragon Ball Super (as of episode 28)

I mentioned this in my last post about Dragon Ball Super that I am watching it dubbed on Toonami and I still am. The experience has been very up and down and I have made some rabidly bad and other lukewarm comments on twitter about it. From doing all that, I feel like I have…

Hey Everyone. Just wanted to let you guys know that I am going to take the next week off of blogging. The past two work weeks have been more exhausting then usual because almost every shift then mine took vacation time which put a lot more strain on mine. I came home everyday without any…

A Magic Door Changes Everything: Restaurant to Another World

Who knew that there can be an anime series based around something that possibly found in a D&D campaign? I know that Restaurant to Another World is far from a break out hit for a lot of reasons, but that concept blows my mind every time I think about it. It’s also a great way…

Wolf’s Rain: The Journey for Paradise

Man, why didn’t I watch this show when I was younger? I had so many opportunities to do so, but I always turned it down for one reason or another. Why did I do that? Maybe it was because a story about wolves traveling from once place to another was rather silly? Well, there is…

Knight’s and Magic has some problems

I have been enjoying this anime quite a bit, despite all the problems that I feel like has. From a lot of perspectives, this could be considered another isekai light novel anime series. All the tropes are there.  The main character is still a little bit of a self-insert character (being reincarnated into another world…

My Anime Justice League

Continuing my super hero theme for some reason, is my anime Justice League. This is somewhat an idea brought influenced by Derek Lyon’s Avengers post, but this is DC inspired, so it’s completely different. COMPLETELY DIFFERENT. I’ve been a DC fan ever since I watched Batman: The Animated Series, Superman: The Animated Series, and the…

Heroes fight for the public (or do they?)

If you have paid attention to popular culture since 2008, you would notice that our society has been filled with super hero media. There are going to be six hero movies this year with 3 MCU films, 1 fox movie, and 2 DCEU movies. This is not to mention all of the tv shows and…
