"Excel Saga" Soundtrack 2: Leftovers Lack Luster, Laughs

Back in late 2003, I stumbled upon a little anime comedy called Excel Saga. With little prior anime experience aside from some Sci Fi Channel movies and Dragon Ball, I gave it a shot. Not only would the comedy in Excel Saga far surpass my expectations, it would be my anime “gateway,” leading to hours […]

"Labyrinth of Flames": Thanks Japan, This is More Like It

Labyrinth of Flames is a severely underrated comedy anime. As a big fan of Excel Saga, I’m not surprised I enjoyed it. But over the last year of comedy anime, I’ve been disappointed more times than I care to admit. With the exceptions of Full Metal Panic: FUMOFFU, Kodocha, and Cromartie High School, pretty much […]

"Divergence Eve: Misaki Chronicles" Vol. 1: My Eyes are Up Here

“Foolish Earthlings, totally unprepared for the effects of time travel! Ahahahah.”- Kang That basically sums up the main plot to Misaki Chronicles, the follow-up to Divergence Eve, a sci-fi anime from 2003. For those unfamiliar with the original 13-episode tale, it concerned a newly-recruited cadet named Misaki who fought against “Ghouls”, mechanized monsters bent on […]

"Ren and Stimpy" Season 5 and Some More of 4: Put This Dog and Cat to Sleep

Back when it first debuted, many people criticized Ren and Stimpy for its vulgar humor and gross-out gags. And many of those same people blamed it on John K., the creator. Little did they know that the most disgusting jokes would arise during the Games Animation era, which started in Season 3 after John K. […]

"Ren & Stimpy" Seasons Three and a Half-Ish: Are You Game?

Games Animation. The name sends shivers of rage down the spines of John K. devotees. Remember when John Kricfalusi, the mastermind behind the infamous Ren & Stimpy, was fired from his own show, along with his studio, Spumco? And how Nickelodeon created their own domestic animation studio to take over the reins in Spumco’s absence? […]

"Sakura Diaries" Vol. 1: One Re-Release Too Many

ADV originally released Sakura Diaries back in 2000. At the time, ADV didn’t realize they had dubbed an edited version. So they re-released it with the unedited version (with nudity), but only included the Japanese audio and English subtitles. Now, five years later, ADV has decided to re-re-release it with a new English track. Sakura […]

"Ed, Edd 'n' Eddy's Boo Haw Haw": More Manic Fun from the Cul-De-Sac

Another in the string of themed specials, Ed, Edd ‘n’ Eddy’s Boo Haw Haw tries its hand at Halloween, with hilarious results. To get into the holiday spirit, Ed watches horror movies all night. His room is literally a video store of horror tapes. As a result, Ed’s perceptions morph into a chaotic nightmare vision […]

"Mythical Detective Loki Ragnarok" Vol. 1: If Conan Was a God

Mythical Detective Loki Ragnarok is a charming fantasy series about Norse mythology. Of course, most of the charm comes from the large charms on the female protagonist, Mayura. But it also comes through the varied and colorful palette, the relatively light-hearted tone (which also becomes serious when needed), and a lack of any real violent […]
