"Jubei-chan 2" Vol. 1: The Ninja Girl Returns

The original Jubei-chan the Ninja Girl was damned by its title. Every time I saw it being pushed somewhere I assumed it was one the same old corny, pointless magical girl shows. When I finally did see it, I realized how wrong I was. It’s pointless, but in a truly unhinged, hilarious way. So when […]

"Baki the Grappler" Vol. 2: In a World Without Steroid Tests...

There aren’t too many super-muscled beat-‘em-up anime nowadays. Fans had Fist of the North Star and that was about it, almost everything else that came over to the States wasn’t worth the time. Well, FUNimation’s aiming to take down Fist using the most muscular 13-year-old ever seen. After going through some grueling training the past […]

"The Simpsons" Season 6: Hours of Heady Goodness

Here it is: The sixth season of The Simpsons, all in a brand new case (more on that later).

"Zixx Level Two": "Now You See Him." Just Not in the States

Zixx Phunkee Zee, Flanngo, and a host of humans from suburbia have, if you’ve been watching the show up in moose country or reading the reviews here on Toon Zone, been defending the planet from an alien threat.

"Gunslinger Girl" Vol. 3: When Everything Works

Prefacing this review would be like trying to cover the aurora borealis with a dark lens: it just wouldn’t help. So I’ll get right to it: Gunslinger Girl Vol. 3 is fantastic. This is what series that try to have a more ambient, less keyed-up pace should strive for. It’s what voice actors should dream […]

The plot advances nicely and the tone darkens a little bit in Fullmetal Alchemist Volume 5. So let’s skip over any lame puns or intros and dive right in! After meeting Tim Marcoh, Ed and Al may be close to finally discovering the Philosopher’s Stone, the key to restoring both of their bodies to normal. […]
