"Panda-Z" Silent Pandas with Giant Robots!

by Dukeon November 8, 2005
Picture a panda hero. Now picture a panda-shaped Mazinger Z. Now put them in an anime with no voices, and attach an opening in English. No way it could be good, right? Wrong. Mostly. In Panda-Z, the Warunimal Empire wants to take over the world. It’s up to Pan-Taron and the Panda-Z to stop this […]

Preview: "Hakugei" Proof Adding "In Space" Doesn’t Make a Good Show

by Dukeon November 7, 2005
Does anyone remember that one Daily Show segment where Jon Stewart and his correspondents are thinking up new reality shows, and one of them just adds “in space!” to the end of the others’ ideas? [I do! -Ed] A similar process could’ve been the genesis of Hakugei. Or, as its developers probably called it, Moby […]

"The Batman" Vol. 2 Shows Promise, But Still Stumbles

by Dukeon November 7, 2005

"Teen Titans" Fear Itself: Nothing to Fear but Lackluster Extras

by Stuon November 5, 2005
Warner Bros. Home Video has a dubious record when it comes to animated series DVD releases. Some receive fully featured box sets, others are relegated to piecemeal, often less than satisfying individual discs.

"The Batman Vs. Dracula": Fang-Smackingly Delicious

by Stuon November 4, 2005
The Batman has been a love/hate show for franchise fans since the very moment it was announced. A feeling that it could never top Batman: The Animated Series didn’t help, but some remained cautiously optimistic that it could prove a refreshing take on the Caped Crusader. Now I watch and enjoy the series, but it’s […]

"Justice League Unlimited" Vol. 2: The DC Entry Drug

by James915on November 4, 2005
The original Justice League was a little on the bland side. Sure, the occasional episode was magnificent, but too many generic alien baddies decreased enjoyment of the show. Batman: The Animated Series, most of Superman: The Animated Series and Batman Beyond raised the bar so high that Justice League seemed like a pale attempt to […]
