Blast from the past – Captain Harlock: Arcadia of my Youth

Origin stories have become incredibly common place these days. Especially since we are currently in the super hero movie bubble. More hero origins are getting explained and are still being placed in the already large cinematic universe, DC is catching up with their latest offering being the origin story of Wonder Woman, Star Wars is…

Old school and new school combined – MHA S2 E10

Just a warning, if you haven’t seen this episode yet, I am about to spoil the whole thing. BEWARE (wiggles fingers dramatically). I know that I am going to be one of many people who gush about this episode and for good reason. This was one of the best episodes of anime that I’ve seen…

I have mixed feelings about Suka Suka/World’s End

This is the one anime airing this season that I don’t know how to put my finger on. I’m not sure what it is, but there are a few things that throw off the series for me. This doesn’t mean that it’s bad because there are quite a few things that I like about it…

(Some Thoughts) Hakuouki: Season One

I wrote a post about Hakuouki and the reverse harem genre in general a little while ago and I have to say that a lot of my feelings toward this series have not changed since then. Reverse harem shows seem to be intelligently written for the most part and Hakuouki is yet another decent example…

Quick Review – Gasaraki

I know I talked about Eva a lot recently, so this is the last of it. Infact, this is also the post of Mecha march. So anyway, will I make no promises when it comes to not talking about Evangelion in the future. Gasaraki borrows a lot of the ideas and themes of Neon Genesis…

Quick Review – Cyborg 009: Call of Justice

Hey everyone. This will be first official post of Mecha March. It’s technically not a mech show, but there are pilotable robots in it and the main characters are cyborgs. That has to count for something, right? So like the last review, this show is on Netflix as well. Unlike the last review though, I…

Quick Review – Gantz: O

Just to let everyone know, I went into this knowing absolutely nothing about Gantz. I am not much of a manga reader and I have watched the horrible anime adaption either. I know that this adaption wasn’t for me, but I decided to watch it anyway by going in blind. I saw the icon for…

Quick Review – Ao Oni: The Animation (The Movie)

I originally watched this just because Crunchyroll put another movie on their service, it was an hour long, it was starting to get late, this would be something easy to write about so I can fill some space on my blog. I was honestly surprised with how much I enjoyed myself with this movie. I…

(Anime Review) Buso Renkin

In my head, I’m still trying to debate where I stand with this show. This is something that I will be debating amongst myself for a while. (I’m not crazy or have multiple personalities, okay?) There are some strong aspects to it that I like, but it felt like Buso Renkin tries to sabotage itself…

(Animesque Review) Voltron: Legendary Defenders Part 2

I can honestly say that I loved this part a little more than the first offering we were given. It solved some of the problems that I had with the first part, but left some of the blanks completely open still. More on that later. I’m not going to call this a second season, because…

(Anime Review) The Book of Bantorra

Surprise. An anime that a lot of you haven’t watched or heard of before. Maybe. I wouldn’t have heard of it either if I didn’t get the dvd set of this anime from Crunchyroll’s mystery box thing. I got a few different shows from this box set at well, but this show sounded the most…
