Much of what they’re telling are events we already knew about, so further elaboration tends to be repetitive and unnecessary. “Out of the Past” does suffer from this, since it explains how Arcee and Cliffjumper became partners and eventually end up on Earth. It doesn’t advance the overall […]

by Dr. Daedaluson September 5, 2012
Wow, 2012 hasn’t been a good year for me when it comes to anime.  Rosario+Vampire, Arakawa Under the Bridge X Bridge, Sekirei, Motto To Love Ru, Panty & Stocking, Infinite Stratos … I haven’t been crazy about very many of them.  And now we have Shana, which sadly doesn’t reverse the trend.

Those are some pretty high stakes, and as this set opens the […]
