Review: "The Aquabats! Super Show! Season One (UK Edition)" - Earth's Funniest Heroes

thumb-aquabats

Writing a lot of reviews for anime titles means I usually come across stuff that isn’t likely to air on mainstream UK TV. This of course can also hold true outside of anime releases but perhaps even worse is when a show has been picked up but is lesser known. The Aquabats! Super Show! is […]

Video Game Review: "Rayman Legends" Is a Game for the Epics

RaymanLegendsCover

Rayman Origins came during a time of resurgent nostalgia for the platformer genre that is fortunately still prominent, as we’re seeing new renditions of old classics or new entries for franchises that had seen years of inactivity. For its part, Origins seemed content to draw from Donkey Kong Country Returns with its fast and intense […]

Review: "One Piece Season Four Voyage Five" - Foundering on the Rocks

thumb-onepieces4v5

At the start of One Piece Season Four Voyage Five, Luffy, Zoro, Nami, and Chopper race after the Puffing Tom sea train that is carrying Robin to Enies Lobby and certain execution. Meanwhile, having stowed away aboard the Puffing Tom before its departure, Sanji frees Usopp and Franky and the trio make their way through […]

Review: "Heaven's Lost Property: The Angeloid Of Clockwork" Half-Time Heroine

thumb-heavenslostpropertyaoc

The extras are decent, which can tend to happen with movie releases. A commentary with the English crew is entertaining for a once-over, but you won’t miss much if you skip it. Still, it’s a pleasant inclusion that needs to happen more often. The original Japanese commercials for the movie are accompanied by various trailers, […]

Review: "Martian Successor Nadesico" Complete DVD Boxset - A Truly Super Robot Show

thumb-nadesico

In the post-Evangelion landscape, mecha anime became even more serious, deeply philosophical and emotionally overwrought. I say even more, because really those wheels had been set in motion since Gundam, which marked a major shift away from super robots as toyetic kids shows, and towards “war is hell” allegories. However, post-Evangelion, stories tended to be […]

Review: "Horizon on the Middle of Nowhere Season 1 (UK Edition)" - Nowhere Near What You'd Expect

thumb-horizonnowhere

Usually I’d offer a brief explanation of the plot’s starting point but on this occasion I find myself more than a bit bewildered. As the adaptation of a later saga in a massive sci-fi epic, Horizon does itself few favours by beginning the show with a hurdle in the form of a four episode ‘introduction’ […]

Review: "Wander Over Yonder" - You Should Wander Over Immediately

thumb-wanderoveryonder

It’s been awhile since we last saw Craig McCracken in action. The genius creator of The Powerpuff Girls and co-creator of Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends seemed to disappear as a wave of new talent spilled onto the US animation scene. While young blood like Pendleton Ward, J.G. Quintel and Alex Hirsch have been delivering […]

Review: "Wander Over Yonder" Worth the Trip

thumb-wanderoveryonder2

Some shows have a great big high-minded purpose with massive casts and a sprawling epic story with dozens of intersecting plotlines. And some shows are Wander Over Yonder, where there’s just two main characters (so far anyway) and they mostly exist to make themselves laugh. Those two main characters are Wander, a happy-go-lucky guy who […]

Review: "The Legend of Smurfy Hollow" Charms; "Slugterra: Slug Power!" Stumbles

thumb-smurfsslugterra

I’ll admit that the Smurfs aren’t my favorite characters in the world, either in their original comic book or later animated forms. I like them fine, for the most part, and while I may like things like “The Purple Smurfs” or one of their holiday specials, I think I still tend to approach all things […]
