Review: “Yona of the Dawn” Part 1 Brings a Winning Fantasy Adventure

by Todd DuBoison July 26, 2016
Well-done fantasy is a special treat in Japanese animation (and the medium at large, for that matter), but well-done fantasy with a woman as the key and non-subordinate figure is a downright rare experience. But Studio Pierrot’s Yona of the Dawn delivers on both counts and joins Moribito and Twelve Kingdoms as a sterling example […]

Review: “CubexCursedxCurious” Blu-Ray/DVD is CrassxClichexCrummy

by Neo Yion July 25, 2016
I thrive off bad entertainment. Shows with an utterly inane premise or a certain level of awfulness makes it worth sitting through for sheer notoriety alone. Sure, the product is bad, but at least you can laugh at it, so there’s a consolation prize. CubexCursedxCurious (or C3 for short) held exactly the kind of nonsense plot […]

Review: “Rage of Bahamut: Genesis” is the Ultimate Fantasy Love Letter

by macattackon July 21, 2016
This series should have failed. Rage of Bahamut: Genesis is based on a mobile social card game that has been a fairly sizable hit in Japan, but barely penetrated US shores and obtained mediocre-to-bad critical reviews. The success in its native country guaranteed an anime tie-in to further promote the property sooner or later, even […]
