"Justice League Unlimited": The Ultimate Fanfic

Remember when you were a kid, back when you actually played with your toy action figures instead of leaving them sealed up in their plastic boxes to await a hoped-for appreciation in the collectibles market? If you were normal and hence hyper-imaginative, you probably threw them together in vast, intergalactic, franchise-shattering battle/soap opera melanges, pitting […]

"Neon Genesis Evangelion" Platinum Edition Vol. 5 and 6 Make No Sense, But Still Rock

The Evangelions versus the Angels. That’s how the fight has been set up in Neon Genesis Evangelion, and if you’re part of the everyone who’s seen it category, you’d know that. But for those of us just now catching the series, how does the drama and mystery hold up on the first run? The discs […]

"Porco Rosso": That Magnificent Pig in His Flying Machine

One wonders what Hollywood studios would have made of animated leading man Marco. He’s a short, fat, mustached Italian bounty hunter who just happens to be a pig (literally). Comical hijinks ensue, right? Yes, and fart jokes, thank you DreamWorks. But hold on a moment. Marco’s no comedian, and he’s not even all that sociable. […]

"Case Closed: Dubious Intent" Or, "Rerective Ronan"

Jimmy Kudo (or Shinichi Kudo, depending on your version preference) was your standard high school genius detective. They’re all over Japan. But when shady criminals drug him, his body is turned into that of an elementary school kid. To protect his loved ones, he keeps this a secret from everyone except one close friend. His […]

So if you’re not old enough to watch South Park or buy Halo, stop reading now. Kamen Rider: The masked-motorcyclist-bug-dude who defends the world. Tuxedo Kamen: The masked man in a suit […]

"Midori Days": Come and Knock On Their Door...

“Mad Dog” Seiji is the toughest fighter in the school. With his “Demon Right Hand,” he’ll send his enemies to a hell of pain. Though he may be far from the sharpest tool in the shed, he makes up for it with pure street skill. Naturally, girls go for the bad boys. Midori used to […]

"Gravion Zwei Volume 1": Return to the "Eye Of The Storm"

Soldiers of the Gran Knighthood, combine once again! After a period of peace, the Zeravire have returned to invade the planet.

"Samurai X: Reflection Director's Cut" Back To The Cutting Room... Please!

A wandering samurai, Kenshin Himura, uses his reverse blade sword to defend those wronged, atoning for the sins he committed as “Battousai the Manslayer.” With a wife and child, the desire to make things right is too strong; Kenshin leaves home to ensure a better future for others.

"Love Hina: Perfect Collection" Truly Perfect, Despite Problems

“Let’s go to Tokyo U together, Kei!” Keitaro Urashima is your standard, average, and rather pathetic loser aiming to get into Tokyo University. Having failed the entrance exam multiple times, he’s been forced to prove himself by moving out of his parents’ house. Hoping to live with his grandmother at her hotel, he’s surprised to […]

"Koi Kaze Vol. 1" Unsettling and Brillant

Anime as a medium sometimes seems as though it’s seeking out taboos to break. Onegai Teacher plays with the student-teacher relationship, Gravitation and Fake toy with gay relationships and Onegai Twins and .Hack//Legend of the Twilight Key mess with some inferred incest. Koi Kaze drops the inferred and adds pedophilia: it’s a show about a […]
