"Gundam 08th MS Team" Gundam At Its Very Best.

The other two Gundam side stories, 0080 and 0083, were created to shed light on the One Year War and act as a bridge between the original Gundam and Zeta Gundam. But with the Universal Century now over and the alternate universes of G Gundam and Gundam Wing king, something had to be done to […]

"Gundam 0083" Fantastic Action Surrounded By Torturous Characters

Ah, the Gundam side stories. Because of their short length and cheap price, most people who like Gundam choose these to view the One Year War and the Universal Century. Unfortunately, just because it’s part of the Universal Century doesn’t automatically make it good. While 0080 was decent and 08th MS Team was excellent, 0083 […]

"Gundam 0080": War is Hell, But You Knew That Already

Ah, the Universal Century. The original and by far the longest in Gundam‘s timelines, and still the mainstay of the series. Because of the popularity of the original Gundam, three side stories (the other two are 0083 and 08th MS Team) were made to capitalize on its success and offer a new point of view […]

Toon Zone at Otakon: Where's Bandai? Viz?

This year at Otakon, anime industry heavyweights VIZ Media and Bandai did not make an appearance. No official reason was given for the Bandai’s absence, but longtime company spokesman Jerry Chu recently left the company. VIZ Media did not attend due to a conflict with previously scheduled events.

Toon Zone at Otakon: Geneon Showcases Indigo

Geneon had Panels at Otakon 2005. While much of their panel was devoted to showcasing “The Indigo”, one of Otakon’s performing musical guests this year, Geneon did run their promotional video from Anime Expo 2005, which among other upcoming series included the Hellsing Ultimate Promo video. A roller coaster of character cameos, awesome shots of […]

"Midori Days" Vol. 3: A Satisfying Conclusion to a Satisfying Drama

Before I begin, let me say this: Midori Days, despite what many people on the Internet claim, is not a zany comedy with gut-busting laughs every minute. Oh sure, it has some funny moments in each episode, most of them awkward and/or imaginary. And yes, it begins as more of a comedy: the general weirdness […]

"Hanaukyo Maid Team" Vol. 3 Kind of Messy

The newest maid anime in a long line of maid anime has reached its conclusion. But you wouldn’t know from watching it. In fact, the third and final disc of Hanaukyo Maid Team had me scrambling for information on when the next volume was coming out. Sadly, however, a fourth volume just isn’t in the […]
