"Black Blood Brothers" Box is Pretty Bloody Good

You’ve probably had the experience of walking into the middle of a conversation only to hear someone say something like, “Well, sometimes there’s a fake cow.” That peculiar feeling—that you understand all the words while missing the big picture—pervades a lot of the early episodes of Black Blood Brothers, an anime series that happily flings […]

"xxxHOLIC" Vols. 4, 5 and 6: It's Scary How Lame This Series Turned Out to Be

I long ago stopped hoping that xxxHOLIC would turn into an honest-to-goodness supernatural-themed spook show. That, as it happens, is a benefit to being a congenital pessimist: one is so rarely surprised when everything just goes to crap. It would have pleased me no end if the final three volumes of the series had upended […]
