Space Battleship Yamato 2199: Episode 24 – Finally Made It

Here we are guys. The crew of the Yamato finally made it to Iscander. I’m starting to feel like this is going to be one of those “the journey was better then the destination kind of things”. Yes, the Yamato crew eventually gets the Cosmo Cleaner device, but we went through a lot of the…

(OWLS Post) Importance of Music in Code Geass

Hi past guests and possible newcomers. My name is Scott and Welcome to Mechanical Anime Reviews I’m going to be honest about two things here. The first one is that I was going to take this month off originally. That was until Lyn unveiled her wonderful theme about music. As a hobbyist musician, this topic…

Space Battleship Yamato 2199: Episode 23 – Into the Fire

Ok, I have to say a few things. This episode approached the Yamato’s “final” conflict with Gamilas in a completely different manner then the original series and I love that fact. Instead of destroying the hollow planet that is Gamilas like the original series, the Yamato took the peaceful approach and saved the planet from…

Key: The Metal Idol – A Little Touch of Humanity

I recently wrote an OWL’S Post about this show where I approached this show on a minor level and talk about my life’s journey. Well, I finished the show the Sunday before that post appeared on WordPress and feel like I have so much to say about this show because I really liked it. Thanks…

Sakuracon 2018 Decompressed

Hello everyone. During Easter weekend, I went to a very special convention with my dad and one of my best friends. Ok, maybe not a special one for everyone, but it was for me. This Convention itself is called Sakuracon. I was in the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle on the Friday and Saturday…

Mecha March 2018 in review

Holy crap guys, thank you for making this event a success. I am so surprised by how many responses I’ve gotten from it. I wrote reviews about series that are much more obscure in nature then things like Angelic Layer and Wolf’s Rain, yet I think every single one of these Mecha March Reviews did…

Netflix Watches: B: The Beginning and Children of the Whales

I’m beginning to separate Netflix Anime and any other anime that will appear on Netflix. Why? Because Netflix decided to be special. Instead of simulcasting shows, except for that one show that will be reviewed on this segment later and was simulcasted almost everywhere except the United States, they release each of their shows in…

Winter 2018 in Review

Here we are again, people. Caught in between two anime cycles again. (Or if you are a Babylon 5 fan, in between the tick and tock). Winter 2018 was a solid season, despite the questionable first impressions I had. Even without the shows that carried over from the season before it, there are seriously great…

First Impressions: FLCL Alternative (FLCL 3)

A surprise thing happened on April Fools. FLCL Alternative’s first episode premiered on Toonami at midnight instead of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders. It was in Japanese with subtitles too, which was amazing. I, being a crazy person that had to wake up early in the morning on a Sunday and came home from an…

(OWLS Post) Key:TMI and I: Of Humanity and Friends

Hi everyone and welcome to this post. Thank you for making your way to my blog. My name is Scott and I run this little blog called Mechanical Anime Reviews. Right now, I’m having a small event on this blog called Mecha March. It means that most of my posts are focused on Mecha anime,…
