Review: "One Piece Uncut Collections 1-4 (UK Editions)": See Pirates at their Best!

One Piece UK Complete Collection 1-4

When it comes to reviewing any product, it is good to know that the review is impartial, honest, and objective; looking at the product with fresh, critical eyes and, in turn, guiding the reader through a fair appraisal of that said product. I think any reviewer worth his bag of chips would stand by that, […]

Review: "We Without Wings" Complete Series: Needs Flying Lessons

We Without Wings

There’s nothing worse than untapped potential. We Without Wings: Under the Innocent Sky falls into this category; it’s one of the most frustrating anime series I’ve watched as of late. I say it’s frustrating because the premise is actually pretty cool and inventive: A guy has the ability to travel dimensions, thus occupying four different […]

Call of Duty: Ghosts Review (PS3)

Call of Duty Ghosts Review - Homecoming Current Gen

Call of Duty: Ghosts – Campaign Mode What do Superman Returns and Call of Duty: Ghosts have in common? Brandon Routh and an apocalyptic storyline. Ghosts’ plot is almost as unbelievable as Lex Luthor using a one-foot crystal to create a new land mass. Nevertheless, the gameplay in Call of Duty: Ghosts is fun and […]

Review: "Frozen" - Disney Marketing, Meet Me at Camera 2

thumb-frozen

Quick, someone tell me what Disney’s new animated movie Frozen is about.  If you said, “a wacky, slapstick adventure through a snowy place that somehow involves a woman who can freeze things, a lunkhead with a sled, and a talking snowman called Olaf,” congratulations: you’ve seen any/all of the ads that Disney has made for […]

Review: "Sanjay and Craig" (UK) - Comedy with Crossover Appeal

thumb-sanjaycraiguk

There’s a lot of crossover with older viewers for action animation but often less so with comedy cartoons. Maybe Nick’s new show Sanjay and Craig can change that. As the quick and catchy opening song explains, the series focuses on an Indian-American boy named Sanjay who finds a talking snake named Craig in the local […]

Akira Blu-ray thumbnail

The history of Akira on home video turns out to encapsulate the history of anime on home video in the United States as well. The success of the film in Japan led to the first VHS releases in the early 1990′s, in both dubbed and subtitled versions as well as in full-frame and letterboxed releases. […]

Review: “Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2 (UK Edition)”: Divided by Zero

Code Geass S2

In an alternate timeline, the British Isles have stood unchallenged (other than losing said isles and assuming America as their new homeland) and become the ruthless powerhouse that is the Britannian Empire, brutally conquering other countries and rechristening them with the number in which they were taken. In the conquered Japan, Area 11, Britannian teenager […]

Review: Sincere Romance Shines in "Kimi ni Todoke -From Me To You-" Collections 2 and 3

Kimi ni Todoke

Anime has seen its share of love stories over the years, but I can think of very few series that are so heartfelt and so thoroughly uncynical as Kimi ni Todoke. For any fans of the 2001 Fruits Basket TV series, in fact, I’d call this indispensable as something very much in the same spirit, […]
